Hey Ciribob,

if you can afford to let SAMs up for 15h, may I suggest giving a JTAC a longer life aswell, 12-15h ?

Can you help me understand why you'd need a jtac up for that long? Typically you throw one up and close the base or farp within an hour or two.

I was kind of thinking that they should be removed when you cap the objective.

It's not that bad on Red team as you can use the Ka-50 and get freebie all-seeing-eye enemy location info with the ABRIS, but it's agony on Blue. The only feasible way to find a MANPAD on blue is to get shot at (or down) by one.

I don't disagree with this statement at all. It is getting a little too tough to take out the middle ground farps. I do agree this might be awesome in 2.x where you can't fly into trees, but right now it's painfully difficult to find these units. It was before too, but now there is added emphasis to place them.

Red having the ka50 which shows them on the abris is also unfair but I'm not sure if we can do anything about it. Give blue ka50 maybe?

What about adding a limit to the number of units that can be deployed? Much like how it was for sa6 before. If they Deploy a new one it erases the one that had been on the map the longest. No idea what the limit would be for each type.

Thats what I was thinking. Helis still need to be able to defend farps from the masses. Abortedman is salty because he was killed by ir sam close to our farp. Maybe try not go a predictable route.

On another note, datalink worked fine for me lastnight.

Possibly, we'll see how it goes. Lots of JTACs will cause lag, if they're searching all the time for targets. If they've found a target it's ok.

As I say, JTACs within 10km of friendly bases will not be persisted which may solve the problem anyway.

No mistral for now - each farp has 6 slots for each side. For mistral you'd have to lose an L or M.

Plus I'm not sure I'll have the will to live after editing every single farp again.

So we cant escort our friendly helo's? Lose an L then. The UH-1 can do the L's job.
Also, happy to help edit if needed.

I can only imagine how that feels, but I'm really grateful for the work you did there! Thank you!
