Assets & Claiming

    1. Heavy Assets: Tanks, APCs, IFVs, CAS, Transport Helicopters, Mortars, Missile and Suicide Vehicles. Heavy Assets can only be claimed by correctly named, dedicated squads.
    2. Light Assets: Any other asset/emplacement not defined as 'Heavy Assets'. Light Assets cannot be claimed, but are considered squad property when in use.
      1. Light Assets are first-come first-serve.
      2. Light Assets are considered the property of the squad using them until abandoned or destroyed.
    3. The following (written here in CAPS) are the required names for Squads that wish to claim Heavy Assets. Any squad deviating from these names may not be allowed to claim the asset:
      1. ARMOUR/ARMOR/TANK: All Tanks and Armoured Scout vehicles.
      2. APC: All IFVs and APCs (which have not been claimed by MECHINF, see below)
        1. Whichever one of APC and MECH INF is created first has priority claim over the assets. So:
          1. If MECH INF squad is created first, they may choose which APC/IFV they want to use and APC squad must take what is left.
          2. If APC squad is created first, they may choose which APC/IFV they want to use and MECH INF squad must take what is left.
      3. MECH INF:
        1. Multiple MECH INF squads are permitted.
        2. MECH INF may only claim an APC/IFV once it has more than 6 members.
        3. MECH INF can only claim one APC/IFV per squad at any time.
        4. MECH INF squad leaders are still expected to lead and organise the INFANTRY elements of their squad. Do not make MECH INF squads with freekit infantry.
      4. CAS: All jets, attack helicopters and AAVs.
        1. If there are no CAS aircraft, the AAV may not be claimed, and is subject to the same asset rules as Light Assets.
      5. TRANSPORT/TRANS: All transport helicopters.
        1. Using TRANS helicopters as makeshift CAS is permitted but TRANS must prioritise TRANSPORT duties first.
      6. MORTARS: All Mortars.
        1. It is prohibited to lock MORTAR squads with less than 4 players.
    4. General Asset Rules:
      1. The first squad to be created and named correctly claims the asset(s).
      2. Duplicate Heavy Asset squads are forbidden unless either:
        1. The Squad Leader of the first squad permits it; or
        2. The number of assets exceeds the number of slots in a squad (e.g. CAS on Falklands).
      3. There is no limit to the number of squads permitted, except if it exceeds the number of suitable assets available.
      4. Only one class of Heavy Asset may be claimed per squad.

      6. Vehicles must be manned by the minimum number of personnel required to operate it effectively.
      7. Vehicles must be manned by competent personnel. Do not claim or use assets if you are unable to use them properly.
