Default Radar Truck

How about a radar truck. Take the logistics truck pack a radar system on it and viola. It has a 10 min spawn and can only spot aircraft and it would only be shown as a blimp(The infantry mini-map icon) But make it dark green like so and flash.

This would serve no purpose in PR, by the time you have passed the info about the jet to the team, the enemy jet could be on the other side of the map. this might work with much larger maps, but not in PR sized maps.

Hardcoded.

Radar is hardcoded, making it only show aircraft does not work, afaik.

I wouldn't completely sign what you just said, because there was a video around here somewhere about possible radar implementation.

I think the Dev's are in process of designing a radar feature, but I can't know if they have ran into problems.


/Edit

That was actually alex6714's video what I remembered, can be viewed here.

But please, do not start discussing about it in this thread, use the old thread instead:

true. even now when a plane +it's heading is reported by the time our plane has orientated it's self the enemy's location has changed so the info is no use.

plus you got to think "who want's to sit in a radar truck all round ? it's hard enough to get a comander !

I've been thinking about something in the same lines.

How about making AA dualcrewed?

AA gunner is the same as today, but the driver has a radar. The radar shows only blimps witch might be enemy or friendly, so the driver might say "contact NW" and the gunner confirms.

Sounds really hard to make good. Would be awesome though. I have served on AAA and we had this kind of system. One radar operator and one gunner.

Oh, I'm going to search for that, thanks for the info. Forget what I said people, if that's correct. Would be awesome for different types of ideas.

The problem is, iirc, that'd you'd see all the enemy dots. I can't remember though if it's possible to simply remove the enemy infantry dot all together, or at least change it to something that you can't see, or not. If so, though, then the problem's solved.

I wouldn´t be surprised if it actually was possible.
