  • Artillery Sqd Idea

    Gentlemen,
    A few of us were messing around with this idea the other day but I would like to try it again tonight (April 13th) in more of a serious sense. Basically its a Sqd full of 203ers and riflemen who set up outside a flag area and bombard the area with 203s. An imprivised artillery if you will. If anyone is interested let me know. Ill be on around 6:00 or 7:00 pm EST tonight so let me know if anyone is up for it.

    Interesting idea. Combinded with a squad to make the assault it could be pretty fun.

        I was a squad yesterday on Helmand, I think Al was SL, and this is all we did. Also, when we thought the flag was going to be overrun no matter what we did, we'd all spawn Insurgent, throw C4 on the buildings and cover spots near the flag and then run back about 50-100 meters while one guy in the squad stayed closer and would give the order to blow the charges. Very effective, lots of fun.

          Crombo - you provide the arty squad, and I'll provide the assault squad.

                  Root! You've got a deal! Lets hook up in TS in a diff channel that way we can still communicate and then have our 2 seperate sqds work as one and the TS chatter will be kept to a min!

                    I can't use TS if I'm using in-game. :(

                    Still, I'm sure we can work it out via text and common sense. No run at flag while nade-type things are landing on it.

                        I too thought of that one night while playing to over take a flag but the SL thought it was a lame idea. Said that even if we destroyed all the enemy it would cause to many friendly casulties cause other team mates would be stupin and run in thinking all was safe.

                          Just keep in mind that GLs arent very effective in mostly flat terrain. They are most effective when the target is near a wall, that way the splash damage kills them. Otherwise you have to get the thing to land directly where they are, and thats difficult.

                          In helmand, it works if the enemy is in one of the buildings. But if you are fighting between irrigation ditches, take out your gun.

                            Wow, this whole idea is a blast from the past!!!

                            I actually mentioned doing this in vanilla BF2 waaaaaaaaaaaay back during my first PW night in September, 2005 (hehe), though the idea also seemed to be received with the sound of chirping crickets.

                            I thought the whole AAR is pretty funny, so you'll have to scroll down to find my post. I also mention my sadness when kicked by a supporting member, which is also amusing in retrospect.

                            I'll join up in this squad if you see me around, Crombo!

                              Be advised, I have read good intel from the PR forums that the GL kit will be limited to two/squad in .6.

                              See this thread: http://realitymod.com/forum/showthre...ighlight=light

                              Note: The GL and light AT will not be limited to 2/team but 2/squad.

                              No worries. You guys can use the .5 set-up to practice with the combo of a long distance arty explosive squad, supporting an assault squad, and come up with some sound SOPs for when we get the mortors in a future release.
