Just wondering if the devs have considered spawning from halftracks (and possibly troop trucks for allies). I think it would add a dynamic feature to the battlefield. It would give these light vehicles a usefulness they don't currently have. I feel it would encourage teamwork too. And it is fairly realistic IMO. After all they were troop carriers. I thought it worked really well in PR.

What do people think?

Personally I support this idea, or would like the devs to try it in beta. I think Lobo is opposed though.

Oh right. I wonder what Lobo's reasons are. It would encourage people to play the well-modelled infantry too, without discouraging tankers and flyers.

Only takes one halftrack or truck parked next to enemy main to ruin the game.

Not really, Anlushac - anti-basecamp tool comes in on all maps that need it in the next patch (so I believe), and a half track goes down to two or three good ATR shots. Throw in well-adminned servers AND the fact that it's hard enough to drive a single tank to an active mainbase let alone a lightly armoured APC and we have no such problem as the one you describe.

I support this idea. It's fun sitting in a truck and waiting to reach your destination.

Maybe if soldiers could only spawn from squad leaders if the squad leader was either in a half track, troop-transport truck, landing craft, or Transport aeroplane? Sound like a good idea to anyone else?

FH07 had those nice apc-things that could cross water and you could spawn in them. I think at least Liberation of Caen had them. I really liked those buggers as they gave little headache to germans as allies could spawn in their rear and cap that church and/or backflag near the town square.
