I know it's a bit off-topic but why do Canadian mech infantry only get a single HE-rocket as opposed to THREE AT-rockets, for the Carl Gustav? 

I realize the Carl Gustav is the "heavy" (making the M72s "light") AT-weapon of Canadian mech infantry but the Carl Gustav is famous for its versatility and therefore it seems a bit weird that they only get a single HE-rocket per vehicle/section.

I guess the answer is "probably because that's how the CF typically apportion their ammo". Very likely a question for the Canadian forces or someone who served in 2008.

The ammo load outs for various formations are usually taken from some documentation or first hand reports. Occasionally they have to make educated guesses. Anyone that has sources for different ammo load outs can report them.

I noticed that in the first level of the campaign you have 7-man sections while in real life the Canadian section consists of 8 men. I did a check in quick battle and noticed the sections also have 7 men instead of 8.

I was serving at that time, in Afghanistan. We didn't carry Carl Gs when/where I was but a tonne of LAWs to bust grape huts. I'll ask around.

Also 8 man section is absolute. Sometimes we were shorthanded, but most often not. Is the LAV commander considered a dismount?

Why do they put the inverted plastic bottle on the radio antenna?  :unsure:

A source I found says it was for affixing IR chem lights for IFF identification.
