Why do you think.

Do you think you could swim, decked out with armor, guns, and ammo?
You'd sink like a rock.

Yea haven't you ever seen the beginning in saving pvt ryan the soldiers get off the ships into like 25 ft. of water and half them die because of their armor, shovels, ammo, ect.

But I do think if you eject out of a helo and your a piolet you should be able to float or something because piolets aren't loaded down with a lot of stuff I think

Even if they could swim with 75 lb of equipment, the engine doesn't support this feature yet, aand I don'T assume this will be implemented soon.

swimming would be crap anyway, imagine having an infantry squad swim from one island to the other then destroy your T-80, bastards. i say instead of swimming we should have more amphib vehicles, especially with russians, who are the gods of amphib landings. no, really. you could have the yanks being the air assaulters (as in real life) and the russians being the amphib assaulters (kind of like in real life), SO we should have more air transport for yanks, and troops ships where you can start in BRDM's, BTR's, BMP's and maybe even T-72's and T-80's (with schnorkels) for the ruskies.

i would love that soooooooo much, seeing a troop ship approaching, open its doors, and have s**t loads of amphib vehicles and troops pouring out, with hind and frogfoot support obviously.

yes , it would be so cool , i remember a few years ago , i've founded a video about the russian naval aviation , there was some great scenes with beach landings in the caspian sea , with the huge hovercraft , the support ships , the pt76 , the arrival of all the bmp , brdm , pt76 arriving on the small beach , the bmp's open their doors and the russians get out and run to the inland

ruskie , you've got a good idea , we don't need to balance plane for plane and tank for tank , bis can do that more funny and more realistic

but the snorckels are more for inland combat , not for beach landing , the only thing you can do with a snorckel is to pass rivers and small lakes

true, schnokels would be a tad unrealistic, but it'd still be cool, imagine you're on beach duty, and you see some pipes sticking out the water close to shore, then all of a sudden 4 T-80's rocket out of the water and f**k everything up......

unrealistic, but it'd kick ass, add a new dimension of terror for the yanks

hehehe , i remember an old french film of the end of the 70's with alain delon
the story is about the love between a medic and a doctress during a fictionnal war in europe between two unknow nations but with a big french implication (i think it's a scenario of war against the urss , i guessed that because of the chemical weapons used at a certain moment of the film, and the background of big war)), they are near a lake and suddenly a snorckel appears , and after that , the tank , very slowly , and after the tank continues his road
at the end of the film , the doctress is killed by an ap mine in a field of red flowers , what's the name of these f**king flowers in english Posted ImagePosted Image? in french we ask them "coquelicots"
