Default Helicopters on Forest Maps

Not a suggestion, but a discussion, and perhaps a poll, on whether or not there should be maps like Assault on Mestia or Fools Road and Kozelsk with attack helicopters. I for one would love to see them, the heavy tree line would force teamwork with the squads on the ground to designate targets. On its own it would be mildly effective, but with infantry support it could be a powerful asset.

So what do you guys think, should there be heavily forested maps with attack helicopters, or not?

I'm using those maps as an example because of the heavy treeline, though Fools Road does have the Helicopter Airbase

Yeah kozelsk is perfect for a hind.

Fools could work pretty well also.

Not too sure about a chopper on Fools.

I get the impression that the map was designed so that people either have to slog through the forests on foot or "act the fool" and take the risk of driving a vehicle along one of the few roads. Isn't one of the main design points of this map setting up convoy ambushes? RPG's from the treeline...

I think being able to buzz around the map in a chopper whould make it a bit easy - especially since there are few good drop zones except close to, or right on, the flag zones.

But I do agree in some respects, chopper drops are fun. Not so keen on having to rely on them as one of a minimal set of ways of getting into the game (as in starting on a carrier without just one or two boats or APCs), but they are great to have as a option on more maps. Just not sure if Fools is one of them.

This isn't about the specific maps, they were only an example due to the treeline.

+1. Everytime I capture Airbase on that map, I start wondering when the chopper will spawn
