Default Type 21 Frigate hype thread

The designated hype thread for the Type 21 frigate.

It almost holds a mythical status now in PR. When it will arrive it will change everything.

Not only did the DEVs totally throw off the CAS/AA balance and make TOWs useless against tanks, no that was not enough. They also had to introduce their most controversial change yet, a 16 character limit on player names.

just wondering can a flare code be clubbed with smoke system for land vehicles like in vanilla BF2 so to simulate chaff?

Hype is real, but I worry if ship will be useful in the game. This is big and slow target after all.

Nice to find people are still excited about this even thou I haven't posted any news on it in ages since I've been so busy with r/l stuff (which also means I haven't been able to work on it too, but hopefully will again soon(TM) )

In terms of actual ground support, possibly not that useful unless you have a good crew and ground spotters to direct the ships fire support properly, and that is assuming the ship has a free moment where it isn't dodging bombs to provide ground support hehe.

But on top of the obvious direct fire support it can provide, it will also be a juicy target (will cost the Brits a lot of tickets if lost) that the Argentine jets will all swarm over trying to destroy it, effectively giving some relief to the ground troops from being bombed themselves, and if the Argentine jets simply ignore it to go over the ground targets, then, in turn, the ship will be free to provide naval gunfire support.
Also not to forget that it is a mobile AA platform and Lynx spawn point, etc.

So how useful it is will really depend on the players using and fighting it at the end of the day, like any asset really, like for example an attack chopper or tank in the hands of a good crew can seriously affect the outcome of the battle, and if you have a good ship's crew that could sway very much in favour for your side, or if the enemy has really good bomber pilots, they could deal a serious blow to the Brits, or more likely (and hopefully to make the games more fun), both sides will be more or less evenly matched and you will have a really hard fight, with lots of jets lossed until they kill the ship, balancing out the end results for both sides more or less

Will the frigate squadlead be able to place rally on the ship? Or will the frigate be a permanent spawn point for infantry? If so how they will reach the shore? Landing a chopper on the moving ship will likely cause crazy collision...

The ship will be a mobile spawn point, otherwise, any crew that might die in battle would be next to impossible to reinforce (can't have the captain keep on jumping out onto the ship to place RPs, and he could well die which would leave the ship unmanned). And as well as the chopper which btw, isn't too hard to land on the flight deck (providing the ship isn't under attack), the ship has two RHIBs attached to the side of the ship it as well which can be launched.
