  • Sharqi's Triangle Defense

    Here is a trick that I have kept under my belt for almost a year and select TGers have known about. I figured it was time enough to share this tip to help strengthen TG play. The crane in the middle of the construction site traditionally has been used as a sniper roost. It is relatively unrecognized for the strategic importance that this structure has. With one well placed Squad Leader on top, you can create a Quick Response zone within the confines of the Surveillance Post, Construction Site, and the Hotel flag.



    From the top of the crane, a squad can paradrop onto a flag radius within 5 seconds of spawning on the top. The drop to the construction site is a straight drop putting men directly on the flag. The jump to the hotel requires a running hop in order to land in the flag radius but it's possible to land a squad directly on the pin. The Surveillance post requires a drop to the base of the hill and a final run to the top of the wall. Regardless of which flag falls, a quick response squad can hit that flag within 5 seconds of it's attack to repel or retake a flag.



    So which flag do you need to defend first as a quick response team? The one that gets attacked first of course!

    I used to go up there to be able to snipe people at all 3 CPs, but for whatever reason i never logically thought to put a SL up there. Good stuff.

          At least until the MEC chopper crew catches on.

            Didn't we loose the choopers on this map at TG?

              They're back in... But, it was really great when they were out.

                  Yeah, I was saying it worked well, because I thought the choppers were out. Don't know how well it will work with choppers. I think this is one of the maps with the most perfection in layout, but whoever put choppers on it must of been smoking crack.

                    For some reason I thought this said

                      I've never seen this done but instantly I know it will work as long as the SL can get the SMs to parachute quickly on after another. Like any tactis theres a weekness and here its the SL is vulnerable from attack from above ie arty and especially a chopper. I'll definetly be experimenting with this tactic.

                      Overall smart thinking there LuckyShot

                          Nice and thanks for sharing. This is making me think about other tactical opportunities i may have missed in other maps.

                            Nice tip, but you are a sitting duck for UAV+Artillery, snipers and helo's. Not to mention any support guys out there.

                              It's really tough to hit a guy on a crane with arty. Basically impossible to aim it. You have to get lucky, really. 90% of the time the shells are going to miss.
