Default Iron Eagle needs jeep sized transport

Iron Eagle needs to have more transportation available. I know there are choppers and APCs that are supposed to transport troops, but every round of the 4 or 5 AAS I've played have ended with long walks from main and not half of the team staying round for the end of the map. The IDF gets a few humvees, but MEC gets none.

I would like to see a lot of light transport like humvees and jeeps spawn up at a fast pace like Kokan. Or troop transports if that is more realistic???

Adding alot of transport could make this a great map with its size, hills, cover etc.

Maybe a poll to see if others feel the same?

Best line yet...

hmm, maybe this should have been in the suggestion forum?
I was trying to give feedback, but it looks more like a suggestion. Whatever. Take it as you like it.
Move it if you want...

There is one Humvee that spawns at the IDF main, but otherwise, everything else is armor.

There are 2 Humvees from the start on one of the layers AFAIK, I was using them lastnight.

The MEC definitely need an alternative to heavy APC transport such as trucks/jeeps, it takes about 11 minutes to move across the map in a BMP which is simply not viable.

I play always as Inf on this map and I don't think that this map need more assets. Maybe changing one tank into apc would be nice, nothing more.

Well, maybe one more transport option for MEC.

I agree with the need for more means for infantry to go mobile. While in organized play a competent transport chopper AND an APC should be enough... In all four rounds I've played on Iron Eagle on Tactical Gamer, the chopper goes down and the infantry is stuck hoofing it 1500-2000m to the objective. Once even, I ferried my entire squad with a two-seater logi truck. A logi truck.

Getting shot down in the trans chopper and then promptly being left at main by the APC, no matter how patient you are, leads to rage quits.

Maybe one or two respawning troop-transport trucks is all I ask.

I was playing in another squad in the same round lastnight with Zegel and must add my frustrations at the lack of transport. With incompetent chopper/APC crewmen, it becomes a ridiculously long voyage either on foot or by Namer/M113 across the map, and its inhospitable terrain just makes long trips completly futile when getting taken out by a Havok/Apache.

I ragequit for the first time in a past few weeks simply because the contact with enemies is so uncommon that majority of the time spent playing is waiting or traveling toward the enemy.

On this subject, it raises the point that the MEC at this point don't have their own Humvee/jeep equivalent which is desperately needed.

I would disagree on transport, it's all about tactics on this map, and fobs. you need your fobs, very much on this map, and if that work well then its perfekt, it just seems like every one charges into action not wondering if they would die and have to leg it 2000m because they left their transport 100m from the flag.
