Uh, infantry won't be spottable with the special command seat.

Increase the resource cost to 100% of the pool, quadruple the hitpoints, merge the armor upgrades into one cert (like every other vehicle in the game), halve C-4 damage agains them, and give the owner of the vehicle 100% XP earned by occupants (when the owner is inside). That allows the owner to not necessarily be the driver or a gunner.

Disallow internal seat swapping when the vehicle is in motion.
If every tank had two anti-infantry machine guns by default, what would be the point of ES AI secondaries? (disregarding the fact that the NC variant already has no point)

Personally I think 4 seats is a bit over the top, as within a game the Tank Commander role is kind of redundant. I do however support the idea of either making tanks 3 seaters (driver has no weapon) or switching the primary and secondary guns so the gunner handles the main gun.

But it will never happen because any joe can spawn a MBT and solo it, such a broken fraking system...


I can only dream of such awesomeness....

Necro aside,

PS2 Vehicle flaws:
- Vehicles' firing ability can't be locked/disrupted by infantry (jamming signal)
- Vehicles' mobility can't be frozen by any infantry weapon (for a short period of time).

Hence, Vehicles and Infantry are segregated by the Devs with walls/LOS blockage. I've suggested those post launch I think and would have been better solution.
