SaintRigger Posted September 7, 2004 Share Posted September 7, 2004 What is the role of AFVs in CAV? Generally the roles of an AFV are to trasnport troops quickly into battle and hotspots, lay down supression fire and cover the troops they just dropped off and to engage tanks and other fighting vehicles. Armored cars are more for recon & Communications, then there are assault guns and anti-tank platforms. (as welll as anti-air) Since AFVs don't carry infantry (I don't think) - they aren't really IFVs... How do you guys use 'em? I'd love to have a ton of them, but I'm not sure what role they'd best serve that can't be fit with an APC or Tank (Or aircraft or CAV, I suppose) I'd really like to piece together a mechanized infantry force which is supported with tanks. Are there any AFVs that can be fitted with killer TL electronics to be used in conjunction with indirect fire? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
