Valkyyr Posted January 26, 2018 Share Posted January 26, 2018 I was wondering about the viability of swapping out the UAV operator slot in PlatCo with the Rifleman LAT slot in ASL. Since UAV op's can use either fixed wing drones or quadcopters it provides a number of uses I think could be utilized more? - Lazing targets for Vortex CAS - Destroying targets lazed by ground troops; potential for the Marksman to take on more of an overwatch/scout role? - Simple recon of an AO when only ground troops are available with no Vortex - Interchangeability without leaving an AO. Since it holds no drawbacks to being up in the air at the time (besides fuel), command can choose to either use the asset for whatever purpose or simply have the operator resume a rifleman role whilst the UAV is in a holding pattern. Which leads to why I thought the Rifleman LAT slot would be a suitable swap. AT always seems to be a slot taken very quickly, and is accompanied by two other LAT slots alone in A1 & A2. I don't have the play time near as much to any other regulars, but I rarely see all AT roles using their launchers, and if it happens it tends to be a clusterfuck of armour. (I could be wrong - someone with more time may correct me) But this is why I think it'd be useful having a drone as support in the sky. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
