    I feel they could have atleast brought back a 2 man jet for these maps as well.

    Oh how I miss them from BF2

    Bandar is ok, I usually do the same as what you do. But the one thing I really like about it, is it's flat. Large maps like Kharg, Firestorm, or Caspian have so many trees, hills, or buildings. You lock onto a chopper or a jet, they flare and dip behind cover and come back when they have flares again. Thats almost impossible on Bandar, down by the beach I watched some choppers use buildings for cover, but they really got to be on their game. Usually it's impossible to hit a jet with a stinger, because they flare once then dip over trees or some crap. My first play on Bandar I disabled a jet with one, had to fire 2 since the first got flares, but since it's so open, and he was busy trying to dog fight, I hit him. Put a smile on my face.

    I wish Armored Sheild was stormy and took place in the US like the BF2 map. Hell I wish some of the maps were in the US.

    Well we've never really had a war on our soil except for our Independence, and the one time we fought ourselves :laugh: (Though Pearl Harbor I guess you could consider, but that was a day, I would call that part of a war I guess)

    The Japanese during WW2 tried to set the forests on the West Coast ablaze using incendiary bombs.

    But they were bugged apparently.

    FYI the Japs also attacked the islands off of Alaska. It was the 10th mountain divisions first battle. Sadly they killed no Japs and the only deaths were from friendly fire. Damn near ended the Divisions epic history before it began. They made up for it in Italy.

    Wrong...

    I had to learn this history early on as a private when I arrived at Ft Drum and was explain in the soldiers "Blue Book" that was required to carry by each 10th MTN soldier everywhere they may go. I still have mine somewhere

    Kiska Campaign was random soldiers from other battalions put together into one named mountain men. This was a start but not for 10th mountain as a regiment.









    Armored kill need way more fixes. I am honestly disappointed in it. I hope they can patch the RPG/SMAW to make it even playing field.

    Hot air balloons, actually, iirc. Launched from ships way off the coast. Maybe subs. A few actually touched down but none started a blaze, luckily and fortunately.

    Edit: Realized I meant to say "incendiary balloons" above not "bombs".

    I don't buy it! If Japanese lives weren't sacrificed in the name of assault, I can't believe it.

    Heh. Though, oops, real war stories are kinda OT I guess.

    I predict a buff for the AC-130. Too quick and easy to tear to shreds. I mean on PC only, seems less tin can on console based on what I'm hearing.

    The biggest issue I seen with it so far was on Bandar. It flys inside the map on the RU side. So the RU AA can sit right under it's flight path and tear it apart. And none of the guns on the AC-130 can aim down to hit it till you are right above it, even then you only get about 2 seconds of time to hit it.

    Watched a RU AA sit there for a whole game and take down 5 or 6 AC-130's, they didn't even cap G since it was just free points. And since he was just outside their base and so many tanks spawn, it was almost impossible to make it to hi. He was also positioned on a hill so if you hit him once he could just dip back and return to base. Pretty lameage.

    Well both times I was in it I got killed within a minute though maybe just shitty luck. Though also, at least so far, when I look up I see the damn thing in flames more often than not.

    Don't know your history all that well. The 10th intergrated with 87th Infantry Regiment which was involved in the Kiska Campaign which joined the 10th in 1942-1943.

    Alaska was the 10th's first battle in WW2. Sorry thats a fact. They were one in the same at that time.

    EDIT: Lets continue this in TS man. Don't wanna get closed down again.

    No its not On
    With this being said, it was 10th mountain infantry but not considered a full regiment as mentioned before.


    If you need any further history lessons, Below is the full history straight from Ft Drums website :)

    Yeah...you just have to fight the response urge hard and ignore it and say something about the game instead. Not implying I always follow that myself...

    Here's a short, pretty fun vid. Those quads are a blast. And as a bonus there is a giggly, excited, half-drunk dude playing/commentating who I am pretty sure sounds a lot like Dave on TS minus the Canadian accent.
