Howdy all.  Just purchased the Manticore.  Looking to set up the crew.  Tossed in Santa as the Co.  I'll be using some books/manuals on him to get him up to 5 or 6 skills.  Driver has 4 already. 

 

What skills/perks would you go with for lets say 6 skills on the Co.  Vision vs. Gun skills, etc..  I can always run a camo directive, so that's not imperative.

 

Thanks

Also, equipment too if you don't mind.  Optics? Vert? Rammer? Vents?

Folks keep in mind the crew layout.

 

Commander has radio and gunner duties.

 

Driver has loader duties.

 

Also Tod are you running BIA? 

 

I don't have it as I just recently got the nine, so I'm interested in other folks...

 

Spoiler

Run anything that help your gun handling because with the low amount of shells you get you dont want to be missing shots or having the rounds not go were you are aiming,so anything that helps gun handling. Also i run food with mine and there are very few i run food on but again it helps with gun handling. I also only carry like 2 or 3 ap rounds and the rest prem rounds because the standard pen is not bad but you don't want to be bouncing rounds,you need them to penetrate. Brothers in arms is a must also work on camo.That way you get those sneaky shots off and they don't see you. You want sixth sense because once spotted you will die fast because everything will pen you and if they are slinging HE at you well you will die even faster,so its imperative you know if your spotted so you can take up a better spot or get cover. That's my personal opinion you have to have the gun maxed out on gun handling because of having so few rounds with only a 390 average damage you need all your shots to hit and penetrate.

Good luck hope this helps you. If you want me to break down the exact crew perks i used i can just let me know.

Have a good one and keep the tracks down and the gun pointed at the enemy.

Thanks Trucker.  That will  point me in the right direction.  I played it briefly on the TS, and enjoyed it.  I do recall you have to make each shot count.  Now are you taking vents over optics?
