Bushes as PPO concealments

20 posts in this topic

All troops likes to conceal their positions when possible. Why not allow all infantry to place a PPO as a smaller bush? A PPO that can be placed ontop FMS, GE and foxholes and just next to sandbags and tanktraps.

I like the idea but I dont think soldiers in the field planted bushes. Maybe something else could be used.

they used local foliage etc to cover their positions and camo themselves up also.

Could be fun - even today we spend a bit of time on 'how to camouflage yourself and equipment. couple of twigs here, a few dug up shrubs there...... should never be enough to look completely like a bush, but enough to break up the 'standard' silhouette.

This is exactly what I'm after… to be able to break the silouette a bit. Which is just a realistic feature in my humble opinion.

How about a camo net PPO?

There was a camo net covering very early gun emplacement. These camo net didn't do any difference. To the contrary they said "- Here's a gun emplacement!". They was removed after the first major ingame overhaul in early 2003 (or late 2002?) when all minor 2D buildings was gone (2D buildings = all 1st generation buildings had built proof walls thinn as rice paper).

The old camo nets didn't actually use colors that matched the terrain.  CRS had a history of doing things like that.  For example the original Tiger camo.

I'll put it on the list and get back to you.

Any update on this PPO? We talking about small foliage concealment, just to be able to conceal a foxhole. Maybe two PPO's should be necessary to conceal a foxhole. The foliage PPO shouldn't be bigger than that.

I thinking one of these two bushes, or something new that might be a tad smaller even. But then should such a new bush also be present all over the map so it's not obviously the PPO bush for everyone.
