One of the most satisfying parts of the game is still to put OP infantry inside that OP combat chinook. Glass cannon, but the results are awsm. You can stick a Humvee full of troops inside as well, so the guys inside can fire out of two vehicles at once.
That was fantastic, just have some of those flying over slowly and absolutely flattening a place <3

I don't remember if the laser avenger humvee was able to fire out of it. I mostly just loaded it with a humvee, sniper, minigunner, riflemen set to flashbang and filled the rest of the slots (including in the humvee) with US rocketmen.

You're kidding.. a humvee can be loaded with troops and put inside an attack chinook? how come I never thought of that?!

So I just tested it, only Humvees can shoot out. ECM, Tomahawk and Avenger all cannot.

Also, you can't select targets to attack if you've only got humvees in the chopper. You need to have at least one infintry unit to be able to do so.

I don't think you could shove JUST humvees into a chopper to fill up spaces. If I recall correctly, there would be three slots left, so you'd still need infantry.

It's sort of lolsy having the humvee drones following slowly behind the choppers as well. Big enough blob and a good number of threats are nullified. It's probably a good thing you can't put an avenger in one, or the game would lose all semblance of balance.

e: And again, it's still a glass cannon. Would not recommend for PVP, of course.

the drones in general were barely worth it for anything not a paladin or tomahawk. there was a tactic to spam them for normal tanks then rushing a heavy defense, so the drones would eat the defense spam but it isn't really cheap.

But they put the feather in the cap of the glass cannon assault Chinook. Scout drone plus sniper = goodbye Jarmen Kell.

There's 8 slots, humvees take up 3, two slots left for infantry. And yes, the drones are hilarious.

I thought I remembered that they took up five, but now that I think of it...

Anyway, it's a good thing that tactic doesn't work in Starcraft 2 or DAMN YOU OP TERRANS!!!

Well you can't put MM in anything other than bunkers or medivacs and medivacs can't pick up bunkers soo

Later BF2 is worst BF2. It was best when the Blackhawk was as OP as the Mi-28...which didn't get nerfed at all.
