  • 3 man MBT?

    Reading the official forums and came across this thread.

    In it I found this:

    "To get to the gist of it, I believe that multiple developers have commented that Tanks are going to have different variants. The one that is up and coming is supposed to be a 3 man vehicle. Which has a driver, a primary gunner and a secondary gunner."
    Source: http://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/i...f-hands.35749/

    This is unconfirmed, here-say, but I think it is exciting news. Anyone else heard of this mystical 3 man MBT before?

    PS1 Prowler is the only confirmed sighting I've seen and that was considered the bane of the TR.

                The next vehicles that are supposedly going into the game are the faction-specific buggies. Those are 3-man vehicles with a driver and two gunners, similar the the BF2 FAVs.

                The devs have stated that BFRs will not be put into PS2, and that that model (hidden in a warehouse that you have to glitch into) is more of an easter-egg.

                That being said, it's entirely possible they might come out with a new 3-man tank. They have also talked about making it an option to 3-man the MBTs.

                FYI, in the Planetside universe MBT means 'medium battle tank'. :S

                  Did this thing say "Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply" when you entered the OCP warehouse?

                    Thats an updated model of a PS1 Terran Republic Colossus battleframe robotics. Controversial, a lot of people consider the BFR update to have been the 'death' of PS1.

                      It is pretty much confirmed by the devs that BFR's will NOT be in PS2, until further notice. Comments regarding this particular one, is that it is merely a fun easter egg.

                              Update from John Smedley (President of SOE) via Twitter on 10/28: "To be very clear - we have thoroughly read the arguments regarding crewed MBTs and at this time we aren't changing. We do have some specific ideas on what we want to do and are still discussing internally. I want to make sure people understand that we are listening. That doesn't always mean we agree. We wanted this game to be more viable for solo play."
                              May you be covered in the dust of your Rabbi.
