      The answer is tentatively anyone, though only if you mean “who is capable of entering the cockpit of the jets.” whether or not you get off the ground is entirely dependent on your skills as a pilot/the number of assholes laying mines on your runway/other unchecked jets strafing you as you take off.

        This is why I think in the future there should be a pilot class that auto selects the best 2-4 or however many players and designates them as air support for one game, then switches up. The current system works OK, but the problem is that people vehicle camp instead of actually trying to win, thus ruining the point of the game.

    I like the idea of the EOD bot. Sounds like something that a lot of people might be using in the middle of an epic tank battle to repair tanks so that the engineers woulden’t have to go die just to try to repair a tank.

        Crouch or go prone and they won’t detect you. Just to be safe, crouch into every doorway and then you probably won’t get blown up if there’s one near the door.

      One thing I didn’t like about that was;

      Yeah, great, it gives off some light from the scope, but unless you kill them, is it making a difference? Nope. And even if you do kill them, a determined camper will just go back.

    my m.o.s in the service is 11-C witch is infintry mortar and im super curious how the 60mm mortar system will work in this game. im not sure how familiar the general public is with mortar systems. now as far as the game goes the only way i could see this working is in a (direct lay) firing mode witch would mean you would need eyes on the target to range the target hopefully with a range finder then proceed to adjust rounds on target. now the 60mm system can be deployed in real life in to configurements hand held or conventional.all this means is wether not you use the bi pod and big base blate or wether you use the tube and smaller base plate. if hand held is correct then im guessing there wont be to much to it other than leaning the analog forward for increased range or leaning it back for shorter distances. i would also like to say that all 60mm mortars in the us army have a built in elevation meter at the base of the tube showing how much tilt equals how much range. hopefully this will be in the game to make range finding easier when adjusting rounds. i would also like to see white phosphoris rounds and maybe some illuminating rounds cause these are intrical parts of supporting the battlefeild. screening movements with smoke from indirect systems (yes the mortar is an indirect weapon) is vital in real life scenarios. i would like to see more of this motar aspect . they could go as far as foward observers who could call in fire mission from afar witch then a mortar system could respond to. there is a good future here with this game and i cant wait to see where it takes us in the future ………(off topic)…………..im just saying we all might be flying uav’s in the future

      i liked the battlefield 1942 system, one person had to pull out their binoculars and spot a target, then the morter guy has 20-30 seconds looking threw the spotters binoculars while he hones his shots in. the binoculars follow the round flying threw the air. you always missed on the first shot, but rained hell afterward.

      I would have though it would be awesome to use the project reality system.

      Somebody in the squad marks a point on the map, which you then have to find the distance to (through the legend on the map) and the compass degree (which is marked on your HUD compass). Then input the angle into the mortar, and then the distance into the mortar calculator, which tells you the angle at which to fire, which you then set on the mortar.
      You then choose which shell to use and fire. You can shoot like 12 rounds then you have to reload the mortar.
