Armored Recovery Vehicles

Recommended Posts

What would we all think about adding Armored Recovery Vehicles to Squad? I feel like it'd add a whole new dynamic to bigger games, especially matches with tank v tank combat, like Talil, Al Basrah, and Skorpo just to name a few. Add a towing mechanic with them to allow for unflipping rolled over vehicles and do away with the steady loss of vic HP once flipped. It would also be an interesting mechanic to allow them to either dismantle the wreck or to tow/drag vehicle wreckage back to their team's main base and refund the ticket cost of losing that vehicle and/or reduce the spawn cooldown for the next of that vehicle. It would also give incentive for Sapper and Engineer kits to fully demolish wreckages, to prevent said ticket refund. Here are a few possible vehicles that could be added to fulfill this role for each nation: US https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M88_Recovery_Vehicle Britain http://www.military-today.com/engineering/crarrv.htm Russia https://www.army-technology.com/projects/brem-1m-armoured-recovery-vehicle/ Militia and Insurgents could either do without and ARV or use a T-55 or T-62 variant such as the BTS-4 but im having a lot of trouble finding a viable vehicle for them besides that. For the major nations each vehicle also gets either a 12.7 (US & Russia) or a 7.62 (Britain) for self defense, mostly against infantry

Many times I've seen matches lost because multiple people in vehicles start messing around ramming the stuck or overturned vehicle meanwhile critical events happen on the flags that they could have possibly helped out on. With only 40 players per team it's better to just cut your losses, respawn and get back into the main action in some capacity instead of messing around with this.

 

A better idea would be making the vehicles burn up even faster, lower their respawn times and ticket costs and refocus the fight on the objectives.

While I don't think this idea is super practical with the limited numbers of players, it would be fun to down an enemy tank and tow it back to your base to gain additional tickets. 

 

Would make you either call in your own wrecker or destroy it in place.
