    Hello,

    I've resigned you from your recon squad cause you were using the APC in a RECON squad. In that time I was also resigning another squad that didn't have a proper name and was using an APC.

    I didn't do it for fun or with malicious intent. It was me just trying to get every APC under an APC squad, instead of having APCs in a bunch of squads.

    I believe that you asked about the claimable APC's but I didn't see your questions. I just resigned your squad and the other one when I saw the 2 apc's in a non APC/MECH squad.

    Doesn't a VAB count as a light vehicle? Considering several maps use them as the main trans for inf, and only requiring one crewman. People will probably not make a apc squad to use them either.

    Is the VAB an APC? I thought it was just a regular vehicle with 50.cal like the humwee etc. ?

    Inf needs VAB's when starting Marlin, there are not enough transports, while there's a bunch of VABs. Marlin must be the only map where I've seen de facto mech inf being effective.

    Is this a similar case to the M113 where you need a crewman to man the driver position, but not the gunner seat?

    The VAB is an APC & so is the M113. Unless we have some arbitrary way of defining vehicles in PR, which then should be clearly and well documented for everyone to see.

    Let's focus on the issue at hand here, not weather or not the vehicle is something or not..

    Could the admin have shown some leeway to allow the infantry squads and others the ability to use these vehicles?
    In my opinion yes, I feel we should give players the opportunity to break rules for the better of the game and the enjoyment of the round than throw warnings and resignations on people to "Enforce" rules. Usually a report by another player is what triggers me, or someone clearly stealing a vehicle, such as an expensive one. The more expensive the better the pro-activeness of the admin.

    Similarly to the transport helicopter sometimes being manned by CAS squad, this issue is not very serious. In anycase, the training of the admins should reflect the ability for players to break rules so long as it doesn't cause major loss of tickets or waste of asset use. And in this case that would not be the case.

    CAS_ual_TY what do you think about this?

    In addition I have to add that the 2 squads had only 2/3 members and one APC each.

    VAB is considered as "APC" according to the manual.

    Yes agree with you wicca. Admins should let go unless it is something serious or it actually "hurts" someone

    everything that needs a crewman should be considered APC/TANK/IFV or as stated in the PRTA RULES, and I would say these rules should be enforced always or never, no exception on any clan or any person whatsoever, and you honestly picked one of the best admins in our community to report, not saying that it's forbidden but everyone makes mistakes but Bobcat rarely do.

    No. Vn3 and tunguska. M113 logistics. The manual says exactly what is an apc and what isnt. Crewman doesnt mean its tank apc or ifv

    I know that but I am just saying that everything that terms a crewman kit should be in those 3 categories.
