This is some exploitative OP'ness is it not?
Giving cheap conscripts or OP penals the ability to pick up weapons from the UKF half track acting a mule is OP and unfair in my opinion. Just played against this and they're like Ostruppen who've hit the jackpot on pick ups or obers on steroids, but far more potent. Funny because the only other time I've seen it was only the other day with CrossFire and CaptainPrice doing the same. So I assume it's a recent thing? Pretty low as a strategy.
I know it acts as a weapon drop and the enemy could pick them up also theoretically, but that obviously doesn't happen. So I don't know how you'd balance that. You'd think make it UKF only pick ups from that haltrack but that's not consistant with pick ups.
Solution: Make them like the weapon racks in the base. UKF infantry approach said halftrack and pick the weapons that they want with infantry selected.
