Advanced tech ideas

From all that I've read, haven't seen PS2 vehicles or weapons that strike me as being real advanced. SOE seems to be going for a more gritty feel. No brightly glowing force shields. Which I like. But no reason the future can't be better.

So my ideas for some gritty, down in the dirt, advanced tech they could have in PS2.
  • Patrolling sentry robots for in bases.
  • Deployable turrets of different types. AA, anti-infantry, sniper rifle, grenade, anti-vehicle. Engineers could take remote control of these.
  • Field repair utility vehicles. For getting downed vehicles back up and running.
  • Since PS2 will have mines. How about some more advanced types. Bouncing. Claymore. Self-deploying minefield. Air-deployable minefields. Remote controlled anti-vehicle mines that roll along the ground.
  • EMP burst munitions. These would cause a temporary reset of all electronics over a wide area. Something for high ranking commanders.
  • High altitude drones for area scouting. Also for high ranking commanders.

I think i read about an idea for deploying whole minefields somewhere on here...

I would definitely be interested in the idea of having deployable drones, however i'm not sure i like the idea of them being a pet-like assault force multiplier as much a defensive device for otherwise undefended bases/areas. Like a patrolling turret with limited mobility and a 180 degree blind spot.

I think the router is a pretty good example of advanced tech, i'm hoping the concept makes a comeback! I do however rekon the core combat vehicles looked a bit out of place.

Other ideas?

Infantry designated laser guidance for bombers or artillery?

MIRV type weapons?

A lot of these were in the first game, and liable to appear again.

Re: Advanced tech ideas

Remember a lot of what Sony has up there sleeves for both vehicles and infantry hasn't been revealed yet. So I would expect to see a lot of diversity in the customizations that will be available. Personally I'm hoping for a plethora of innovative cloaker tools to help them accomplish their assorted missions.
