Kiowa already pwns the insurgents on Kokan, but thats largely due to the caches being in those conveniently isolated mini villages which makes focusing in fire from the air easy without massive talk throughs on every run.

Karbala is a bit less severe I think.

Lashkar could be a good option for CAS. Plenty of valleys and caves to give the INS a fighting chance. But no idea if it would actually bork the balance totally.

When we put ZPU ingame, it will most probably end up being used against infantry most of the time. The bad thing is, even as a MEC on Mutrah I would prefer deployable ZPUs over AA missiles. What could we do to fight these problems, that will come with deployable ZPUs?

Some ideas of me:
-only ZPU2, as ZPU4 has too much firepower.
-make it inaccurate. Inaccuracy is always bad against infantry, while to some degree it can help if you are trying to hit a moving aircraft.
-add a noticable bullet drop. This will nerf it in comparison to AA missiles (the deployable ones), and MG nests.

Another idea - the gun could have zero defenses, it wozld be just the gun itself on a pile of dust. HOWEVER, it could also have nest similar to insurgents' mortar pits, that would force the gun operator to fire up, significantly decreasing his anti-infantry capabilities.

-lucky

You can make a map and balance it like Basrah 0.5 (AKA Lag Basrah), as the USA had 2 Cobras and 2 A-10s.

How to balance? Give INS lotta quad guns...

I think that a heavy-asseted 4km map would be very fun!

Just add a terrible gun depression; make it unable to shoot ground targets.
If this is too unrealistic simply add a high sandbag wall so it can't see ground targets.

With all the heavy assets with thermals and rifles with scopes and HATs and grenadiers and marksmen and snipers I don't think ZPUs engaging infantry is a big problem anymore. Plus if there's heavy CAS then there's no problem at all. Only balanced.

Didn't we use to have a deployable ZPU, but it got removed because that thing was incredible effective versus APC's and infantry?
