I think it looks bbbbbaaaaadasssss!!! (my first thought when I saw this latest pic)

Can't wait to blow things up with it. Reminds me of my custom lowered jeep, except with dual cannons.

Devs, you went the right way with this. Hope we get to keep the paint chips and bullet holes again as an option. Call it battle scars, I would buy that in the cash shop.

Anxious to know all the customization this baby can take too...

Re: New pic of TR Prowler


I'd like to know what is meant by the prowler having extra weapon systems above and beyond the other empires that was expressed in the TR empire brief. What are these extra weapon systems and how do they tie in with the other systems? We know it's a 2-man tank so I don't think they're referring to a 3rd gunner.

If it works and its extremely affordable to produce, why not use it? We can customize and upgrade the weapons over time. Have to start somewhere.

Re: New pic of TR Prowler


Really like the profile of the new prowler. I know I've got my BF3 mates interested hardcore into this game and can't wait to run a hunter-killer group of 10 or so prowlers. By far the sexiest looking tank of the three I think. Though that just might be my TR pride talking. I know it might be a bit silly, but I actually would love the idea of a command seat in the tanks too, for the commanders who specialize deep enough into it. Have one command tank with 6 or 7 other friendly tanks that gives them a small repair bonus and boost in spotting range. That sorta deal.

This thread shows a very interesting aspect of TR players personality: an obsessive-compulsive fixation about order and squareness.

This non-symmetrical turret for the main tank of a control-freak magnet faction must be the largest troll by a game dev, ever. WP Higby !

As I said earlier, it's bad t da bone.

I hope it can do both alternate/dual shots, this will increase ROF when the big guns alternate, and switch to double barrel shot when zeroed in. Having them off to the side will make you feel like the predator with shoulder mounted tri lasers when you shoot those bad boys.

Squared away is all about being a professional soldier! Dude!

And WP Higby!

Re: New pic of TR Prowler


Why are a lot of people saying that the prowler is going to have weaker weapons compared to vanguards? Didn't the devs state that TR vehicles had the most firepower and speed, but lower armor?
I think the vanguard is just going to have the biggest single shot, but lower overall DPS against the prowler, just like in PS1. Actually, high dps and mobility seems like an intresting combo.
Also, maybe it's not just the top speed being different, but also the way the tank accelerates. If you ride motorbikes (I know, oranges and apples ), you know that on narrow and twisty roads having a lot of torque is better than a shitload of top speed... The same could apply in close quarter combat where you have some way to get your tank behind cover.

When people say they are "weaker" they are referring to per-shot damage, not dps. I expect DPS will be significantly higher on the Prowler.
