Yup! 6-8 is also what I know from the german Bundeswehr. If it is possible to find the needle, it would definitely be worth looking for. 8 People Squads would make many things better. The real problem in BF2 is, that squadleaders can't talk to each other. That makes it hard to do co-work with two squads. But if one squad can take up to 8 people, it would be much easier to do bigger assaults on outposts. It would be more like in real battles. At least for those, who want to have it. Others could still form up their one-man-rambo-squads.

In which army where those amounts? Eg. in Soviet there were 12 or 13 members in a single squad during WWII. About other armies i dont know.

IMO 6 members is too few, 8-9 would be good. Somethimes a difficult operations require more attendants than usual. That means 2 squads are needed (1st sq engages the enemy wich ties the enemy on defence while the 2nd sq flanks the enemy). Communicating in one single squad would be easier.

Eg. in PR-mod 0.6 u can divide the other half in fireteam to make this previous move. But since squads only hold up to 7 alltogether divided squad isnt so efficient. If its possible to raise the max amount of sq member, PLZ do so! It would do good for this mod :bows:. Although im not sure are the players going to act as a unified team as most do in PR-mod. Hopefully :uhm:

Austrian Army, but since we (now they) lack of combat experience many things from WW2 tactics still exist (what doesn't mean that they are bad)

Imo Voip should be to the whole team, then players could do proper teamwork. Regardless of the fancy minimap icons that you get from joining squads. I really dislike how people think that somehow joining a squad is the only way that you can do teamwork, what utter nonsense. Anyone working with you on an attack or defence is doing teamwork, even if they are not communicating with you. Full team voip = the most teamwork. Breaking voip up among squads is useless and actually makes teamwork harder. Personally i think the bf2 squad system is useless, and just makes certain players into mobile spawns. And fancy minimap icons do nothing.
