View Full Version : TANK/APC/Choppers RADIO

Why is it that vehicles such as Conventional tanks, APC, and other vehicles not have a radio for spotting. The radio should allow the crew to call in enemy positions and call for support, basically everything but deploying fire bases/assets.

When tank crews are in the field, they are not able to report enemy positions on the map which is useful in situations that require accurate marks. usually every vehicle in reality comes with a radio in the field.

Choppers should have a radio given to the pilot himself that should allow everything but deploying assets. so if the pilot is stranded he may still call for support and not type it all in.

the choppers should get an extra marker for marking LZ so that players know exactly where to go and land, this is useful for communication.

Basically vehicles such as Humvees, tanks, APC's, conventional jeeps deserve a radio that can be used by SL or drivers in tanks.

CREWMAN, PILOTS should get a different radios called a Patrol Radio that allows them to call in enemy positions, and call in support, but only if the player right clicks either of the 2 kits

With 128 players you could probably justify a tank commander - like in ArmA - who's also responsible for the .50.
