AIRBORNE COMBAT ENGINEER

We’ve built a powerful new combat engineer equipped with explosive satchels and repair kits, who are capable of receiving 50% resupply for both in the field by any infantryman with an ammo can. This means any rifleman can restock para combat engineer satchels ore repair kits while on mission. These will be very powerful against strategic objects such as forward bases, bridges and more.

AIRBORNE ANTI-TANK SOLDIERS

Anti-Tank Soldiers have joined the airborne and if dropped behind an enemy zone of control they will be able to absolutely devastate those positions. Note they only have 2 rounds, but they can be resupplied by other friendlies who have ammo cans in the field.

NEW PARA AMMO CANISTERS

Now we will take a look at the ammo canisters for each country. They have the same build parameters as the current ammo cache found in the field, with one big exception: their range of placement is within 6000m from the target, which is double than any other PPO available.

As mentioned each country has their own canister, and we’ve modeled in their primary rifles in each. Anyone on your side can resupply from these canisters, including ground vehicles and regular soldiers.
