Javalin (tank hunter) seems to make sense. Given the popularity of tanks at scenario events, and the fact that in many of these scenarios tanks are usually taken out by designated players, Javalin would seem to be a logical choice for a new position patch.
I also thing that Ref should have a Special Ops patch. Refs work hard to keep our sport fair & safe, and they desrve recognition.

I know the perfect guy for this....

He brought to a walk on field a wooden sword (like the Halloween ones, sort of looks real but wooden), dressed in all black, seriously looked like a ninja minus the face mask and a holstered pistol....

During a charge, he led the point as others laid cover fire, sword held high yelling. The best part is he got some people to surrender :)

Javelin, obviously

Arrow (in the theme of melee names B)) - a forward recon class. not deep "behind enemy lines", but well ahead of the main force. we usually have ours about 40-60 feet ahead

Stormtrooper (there go the names, lol)- the type to relentlessly assault a fortified position. very useful.

I'm also all for hybrid classes.

The one I've been pushing for have been the Javelin (Tank Hunter/Engineer) and Halberd (Forward Recon/Ghost Flanker) positions.

Javelin is the heavy ordinance specialist that uses everything from Grenades to LAW rockets to mines. Anything and everything that isn't a marker that throws paint is this guy's favorite. Shotguns anyone?

Halberd is something that my team uses. It's essentially a combination of Dagger, Broadsword and Ambush. The Dagger elements are a taste for the close up and personal, the Broadsword ability to spray and pray, and the Ambush ability to appear and disappear suddenly with or without the use of ghille. What separates this from being a very ambiguous Saber is the willingness to charge an enemy position. I have a person on my squad that is a Broadsword but will go forward and hide, then pop out and charge three or four guys and take them all out because they're surprised. The Charge is enough in my opinion to support its own position.

I personally see no reason in complicating things any more. The positions we have encompass pretty much everything in a modern combat senario minus the medics. A medic would be usefull, I usually pick up that role in senario games. So if I had to choose I would say medic.

Javelin is a given I think recon or scout should be there as well.engineer is good but as someone else stated make him a hybrid position.Like Medic or grenedier or even the ghost flanker. As for what to call this new position....Katana or rapier how about scimitar?

Okay I'll revamp my statement about the position I think should be made. I've read all the threads here and I've come up with the following.

1. Medic - Self explanatory role I beleive. I think I like "Shield" for this one.
2. Special Operations - Does anything from laying mines to shooting big fat bazookas, to penetrating enemy lines and gathering intelligence. I have no idea what to call this position. I did like a previous post where they were called "pathfinders" however, I think this narrows the idea of the exact nature of special operations. About the only thing I could think up was "Katana". In my opinion this would probably be the most played / popular position going. Everyone wants to be a "SF" operator.
3. Vehicle crewman or just Crewman. - Once again a self explanatory role. Crewman could cover everything from Pilot to cannon loader. It's pretty vague and non-specific. Maybe just call this one "Armor" or something of the like.

just my humble suggestions. Have a great day, and I look forward to some more suggestions.
The only easy day was yesterday.

To be honest i would like to see ghost flanker and ambush sniper be seperate, Because they are played differently.
Just my opinion

That's a very good point that should be taken seriously.

I voted for the Engineer position, but Javelin is good too. In the end I'd like to see Javelin, Halberd, and Scout fill those three areas. However, shouldn't the poll have been set up with three different voting sections so you could give a vote for your three favorite positions? And are these even SpecOps endorsed ideas, or did you just slap them on there yourself?

good i found a good forum to ask this question. I play alot but my groups generally consist of only 5 to 8 people making it difficult to really play any of the current positions. i just mark that i play medium gunner because that seems to be the most all encompasing position. maybe that is good enough or maybe we just make a new position for the rec baller. cause we cant play sniper all day nor does the situation allow us to play commander. until i know better i guess i will just mark sabre but maybe there could be something better. what do you think?
