armor for dropship pilot?


What armor do you guys thinka dropship pilot should get?

Im not sure because a DSP(drop ship pilot) may need to get back to his vehicle quickly if he gets caught in the middle of a battle or is called for something urgent, but he may also need the extra armor for getting to his vehicle safely....

waht do you guys think?

all pilots/drivers should wear agile armor. A pilot would not sit around in bulky armor when he is already in a metal shell. If he is out in the battlefield well then he's a pilot out in the battlefield and thats not where he is meant to be and a reinforced armor guy could kill him. This game isn't about being ready for all situations people with different certs will be worse off in some situations than others.

ya but i cant help thinking what would hurt about having some extra metal inbetween you and death?

plus what happens if a DSP gets shot down over a battlefield and is trying to get back behind lines, would it be better to have more protection or speed?.

waht do you think?

Unless theres a restriction, i would rather be in an armor that takes more than 1 sniper shot to kill when im flying a galaxy. It will probably be a super-uber-rare occurance for the pilot to actually be sniped while flying the galaxy (im guessing so much so that most pilots will never see it throughout their PS career) but theres always that freak chance ....

ok... for first im pretty sure you cant fly a galaxy with rainforced armor. Reinforced is not capable of piloting any air vehicles.
So a dropSHIT pilot should probably get agile, agile can drive ANY vehicle they want with the right cert.

Agile or Stealth... using standard is pointless unless you havn't gotten another armor cert yet.

I'd personally go whit agile, unless you just want to drop off your squad and fly off again leaving them behind. Stealth if you're the pilot and scout of your squad =)

You have to wear agile/infiltration for any closed cockpit vehicle.
Open top vehicles can also wear reinforced or standard armor.

Swore it said somewhere that agile was a pre-req for being able to fly. Until I find it again though, I will be quiet.
