    Modified Muls are an obvious choice. That's why I'm so disappointed with Kuryers. I understand CB's vision, but it could be something much more interesting.

    Huh, Muls can also carry any unconscious troopers back to the doctor thanks to Baggage.

    It's not really useful because they have the same speed as the 112 or Kazak Doc, but it's there.

    True this, but what I’ve always wondered is how they carry the wounded around. Do they stuff their unconscious body into one of those duffel bags hanging on their sides?

    Not particularly relevant to anything, but I’ve always wondered about that.

    Just don't think about how an Ikadron Batroid can carry an Avatar...

    The kuryers are the biggest disappointment of the TAK list.

    Just out of curiosity, what would you have preferred for the kuryers to be, then? Because I wasn't particularly impressed, but I wasn't disappointed either.

    Mad idea: A deployable robot for Dozers, a micro UAV or a EOD bot, but the dozer goes all Puppetmaster when it deploys. Like the robots in BF3 and I think 4.

    Actually being new artillery, not just minelayer muls. Autocannons with full auto, twin grenade launchers with smoke ammo too, a weapon to slightly annoy Metal Gear.

    Autocannons, Auto Grenade Launchers, D.E.P.s/Panzerfausts/Flammenspeers. And with weapons lighter than the mobile artillery piece on Tractors they could've been S3 to make them even more different.

    Hell, I'd love to see Infinity version of the MAARS drone. S1 combat remote, 4-2 MOV, Spitfire/Red Fury, Twin LGL, MSV1/X-Visor, FO

    Del S and Stiopa said it. We thought they were going to be cool and interesting. They are literally the same units just with minelayer and a minor state change. Its boring.

    That and the pointless Kazak Doctor just seem really lazy.

    That's literally what the Traktor Muls are.

    I agree that I was hoping for something other than a slightly upgraded mul. And o too am confused by the redundancy of the 112 and kazak doctor. I'm holding out hope that the profile is a placeholder, and with new mini's come new weapon options.

    As for tak bots, a different flavor of things would be a smaller and faster baggage drone to carry people and deliver disposables. Like the bear, probably s2 and maybe only synced to a specific load out like the armbots.

    Let's be honest, though. TAK doesn't need more solid assault units. Such combat bots would fight for place in the lists with multiple other options. This way they only invalidate Traktor artillery. If Kuryers would cost additional 0.5 SWC (to account for the Minelayer, for example), it would make both versions viable.

    I'm really surprised that Kuryers didn't get an Auto Grenade Launcher. LGL boom, HGL range, B3. Suppression fire capable.

    I'm not, not now that we've had it confirmed that it was just a shitty way to try and sell more Traktor Muls.

    We've had? What I've seen confirmed was it being a shitty way to prevent AVA 4 5pts Traktor Minesweepers.
