I was thinking about this- Armored Infantry. They are transported in a tank sort of thing, except that it can carry a squad of players deep into enemy territory. Don't know if it has been suggested before, but I'm just trying. :)

Well, armored infantry is just regular infantry who have tanks in support. I'm pretty sure they already have vans and stuff for transporting people, at least my field does.

Sounds nice, but it would have to be a pretty big vehichle, which could be a problem on smaller fields.

I guess you could modify a tank to make it hold more people...

If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.

Well, you wouldn't use a real tank, just something that resembles a tank, and maybe has a turret on top, and thats it.

I dont think is its worth a regular position, but infantry/armor co-ordination can be important on the scenario field. Not so much for transport (although if large enough tanks are available its certainly a good tactic) but to protect the tanks from LAWS & other anti tank players.
At a scenario I played in a few months ago, I noticed that the enemy tanks were difficult to knock out because we were having trouble getting our LAW guys close enough to get a clean shot - tanks were using radios to communicate with their infantry support to keep us at bay. Very effective when done properly...

What your thinking of is motorized infantry. Highly mobile troops that are trasported in APCs(for PB, modified cars and trucks) and get out only when it is time to fight. In the real military, they have lots of armor to back them up.

92% of teens would drop dead if Abercrombie and Fitch said breathing wasn't cool. If your one of the 8% who would be laughing their butt off, put this in your sig.

Ok, you guys are talking about Mechanized Infantry. They usually come in an APC (Armored Personell Carrier) of some sort Like an M113 or a Bradley Fighting Vehicle, which is the "tank thing" you guys were mentioning.

A van would do for such things if you modified it with a turret on top. And since APC's are normally tracked vehicles, you could put a rubber track around the tires. However, there are other types of APC that use tires. The Stryker for example, and there's others but I can't think of them right now.

The issue is that it might not work on a small field. Usually, there's a whole company of tracks, 4 per platoon, and there's 4 platoons. The tracks take up a squad of 9 each riding in the back, and typically the crew is about 2-3 soldiers operating the vehicle. So, to use it effectively, you'd need at least 2 APC's set up.

I've actually concidered using a van as a chopper, like a black hawk. They'd simply be used to ferry out respawns, air, paint, and water and then carry back "wounded" to the respawn point or dead box.
