Not sure exactly what I would suggest, but more so would like to start a discussion that may lead to an understanding or alternatives.
In the last week or so, there have been several major incidents of FF on the Altis server involving tanks, with the Tanks being on both the giving and receiving ends of the TKs. I myself had an unfortunate incident where I engaged a friendly T-140 at just over 1km with no friendly marker. This person was driving inside a large group of enemy personnel, right next to a verified enemy technical.
This ended up with somewhat of a “shouting” match in the ingame chat about identifying your targets better (which I TOTALLY agree with), but in this circumstance despite the efforts of a full crew and two spotters working dismounted all communicating through a discord server to verify targets, we still ended up with a blue on blue situation resulting in the loss of the tank and a few friendlies getting killed.
I’m not sure on the limitations of the friendly identifier and the possibility of increasing its range, but to me that seems like the simplest solution. granted that may not be in line with the goals of NAK Command for the I&A servers, but it would definetly mitigate a lot of the armor involved blue on blue incidents which seem to happen between 1 and 1.5 km.
It just seems to me that its a common occurrence, and people get VERY heated about something and scream about doing things which are not always 100% feasible solutions depending on the situation on the ground. lots of Monday morning quarterbacking of FF incidents from people not involved.
