some times in Vietnam reporters and medics would e forced to pick up a weapon, would it not be neat to add player tunics and headgear in the game to reflect this? medics especially carried a weapon with them and there are many anecdotes of reporters with a gun in dire situations. I'd live to see a tunic with medical gear, and one with camera equipment hanging off the neck

i am all for this but only if they make so we can customize each class separately. Right now if I buy DLC only thing I can do is run with only one set of gear on each nation.

Southern Medics in Vietnam very rarely wore any identifying marks because they were targeted or at least believed they were by the VC. A minority did have the redcross, mostly ARVN, but it is copy writed so it can't be used. So best case you are looking at a guy with an M5 medical bag and maybe an ammo bandolier repurposed for field dressings, although some felt even the M5 medical bag made them a target and put the contents into other bags that riflemen carried too. For northern forces they mostly repurposed existing bags to carry medical gear, sometimes with vietnamese text or a red cross.

So really all a medic would look like is a guy with another bag on them.

Reporter combat correspondent would be fun, although uncommon.

YES! Albeit it should be optional so people who don't wanna do it can have customizations for all their classes uniform.

It isn't that far out there compared to other cosmetics unfortunately. A Red Cross obviously can't be used, but an M5 bag is plausible.

I don't mean it is far out, just there is nothing to really add. Jamin has decided the cosmetics is this game will not be subtle. Who is going to pay for a bag when they could spend their money on a camo hoodie?
