Rename Sapper as Pioneer

3 posts in this topic

 The Sapper personal is not a historically accurate name. (Since we are going historically accurate now) .   However Pioneer is (at least in the French/British/German armies) .  Infantry battalions had pioneer platoons who provided close support with explosives, just as the current sapper does.  All that is needed is a name change and take away the pistol and give then a rifle.   You can also give them a beard, a true sign of a pioneer.

Sapper/Pioneer used to have a rifle, used to also be the engineer, and used to be all spawned within the first 30 mins of EVERY AO. It was seen by many as a good choice, a rifle to kill inf, and 4 satchels to kill tanks. Now, with just a pistol the sapper tends to be much more specialised and only used when ETs are around.

No reason not to change the name, but I think giving them back their rifles would see them rapidly gone from a DO spawn list.
