Two questions here -- Aside from the FL 10 which can't mount a rammer, what equipment will you mount on your wheeled vehicles? I've chosen rammer and GLD as "must haves" but I'm having trouble deciding between optics, vents or verts for the last one.

 

As far as equipment goes, do you think running both repair kits and leaving out fire extinguisher or food is worth it? I want my wheels fixed asap and not suffer that severe speed reduction.

 

I'd like to hear your opinions on both!

Rammer, vents and optics. If cant mount rammer use a Vstab. 

Also Vstab>GLD every time.

GLDs only work when you are stationary. Has to be one of the most pointless things to use on a wheeled LT.

rammer vents optics the gun handling on most of them are great anyways and you need the 5 or so extra vr/camo from vents. For the 1 with out rammer I'd go vstab tho

I'm running vents, lens and third slot is open as I haven't decided what to put there yet.
I'm considering that the tier X wheeled have decent view range and excellent camo, but I want to test it's gun handling before getting a Vstab or rammer.

Toolbox, Small Spall Liner, CO2 Filled Fuel Tanks

105 Octane Gasoline, Large Repair Kit, Large First Aid Kit

 

All crew has 100% repairs, so tyres fix themselves in ~6 seconds

Driver has Preventative Maintenance

Loader has Safe Stowage

 

I find that HE shells often cause many things to go wrong, especially when you are making an escape - so if you can save the repair kit for when something critical is damaged, instead of using it on your tyres, then you have that one extra advantage...  By having CO2 and Preventative Maintenance, you can reduce the fire chance significantly, and in doing so, frees up that 3rd consumable slot from a Fire Extinguisher.  I use 105 Octane Gasoline instead of food, as it provides that little extra boost for accelerating, as well as helping keep your turret locked on target, despite how much you throw your car around.  I'm playing Frontlines for the Prestige Bonds - I am planning to get the 3000 Bonds Extended Spare Parts Kit, which should cut an additional second off wheel repairs...
