More Ideas about the Universal Carrier

How often do you garrison the universal carrier? This this slight adjustment, an garrisoned squad will manned the Vicker's K Light Machine gun with out the upgrade. Is this useful, probably not. But, this could change the dynamic of the unit to out right removal of the pintle upgrade. This could be applied to other units such as the 251. If applied to a unit with 'holds' instead of 'crews' such as the M3 Halftrack, which has 5 'hold' spots, All spots will be filled with men while the gunner can appear as free 6th man.

If anyone wants to test this out, it again can be seen in my mod.

Looks nice.

(I had made a similar suggestion for the WC51)

Would require a price increase of the unit then, as it would give it a T0 vickers MG for free.

Wrong, you will need an extra squad of any kind to get that vickers, which is 180 manpower minimum if you pick the medic (+ the income loss over time).

But it's kinda hard to determine the possible impact of this change, I mean one could chose to put a wounded squad into the carrier instead of retreating and probably come out with better results.

It is not like the squad will be gone forever.
Putting a unit into the UC is not an investment, unlike a ammo costing upgrade.

- Enter the UC with one squad

- Mow down the enemy

- Make the squad leave the UC

- Let the squad capture the point , while your UC chases after the retreating units

Maybe the UC could apply the squad's 'cover bonus' if they're nearby, to encourage dismounting in the early game?

I only used manned UC to transport troops under MG42s fire in very early game.

I like the OP idea

I would really love to see more UC+IS combination rather than IS+sandbag.

It raises the skill level and justifies the IS power level. This could mean a slight IS buff too.

This is a cool idea, and it's fun that the mechanic would be reminiscent of CoH1 British officers.

How about a medic carrier update that give it healing like an ambulance. I will take that over current medic squad.

An aura can be add to uc. But should it be passive or timer ?

Hell, dont give me PTSD. That Brit officer system was one of the biggest design Fubars in CoH history :D

It should be an ability that it selects a single squad to apply the bonus to (with an appropriate stats boost compensation for not being an aura)B-)

i like the concept of the light vhiecles that have, or can upgrade to a HMG, can be activated or improved by putting a squad in it.

UC vickers upgrade is a touch too powerful as it is, putting a unit inside to activate it sounds good, put a sapper in there and roam around, take dmg, run and fix, rinse and repeat.

same for wc51

halftracks can get improved HMG performance if unit is inside

m3 clowncar,m5 assault thingamajig and 250 halftrack stay as they are imo

Just allow the unit to be garrisoned if upgrading to the Vickers (but not the WASP flamethrower).
