So what role do you guys prefer to take on the server or in ops? 

I'm interested to hear preferences based on equipment and your function in battle rather than responsibility or strategy in this case (which would be annother thread)

for me it's a fairy unpopular one: assistant AR or MG because it's fun fighting with a battle buddy , it involves lots of comms, and i really enjoy spotting targets and calling adjustments. it would be awesome if BI or a modder made a belt feeding function for the assistant

sniper team , usmc medic because of the m4 carryhandle (i like the iron sights ) and then apache gunner or just a section leader ...

i choose sniper because of this : (saving guys , long range shots , atmosphere )

skip to 4.25 for relevance

Marksman depends on the AO for me. When you hit that sweet spot with engagements just on the limit of effective range for M4's or SA80's then it's cool.

any opportunity to mention sniping..

I'm with you on the M4 irons. I'm using my acog less and less these days. it feels more immersive somehow

iron sights is just a bit more challenging i find, its all well and good using the acog to get the job done , but i love a challenge

and i also like marksman if its not british ( i dont like the rifle unless its the lapaua ) any other unit is good tho

Hands down favorite role most of the time: Helicopter Pilot, because of how varied it can be. Transporting units, Scouting areas, providing CAS... all that needs understanding the machine your flying, the lay of land, the situation at hand, quick reactions, planned movement, communication with the rest of the forces. It's just an all around enjoyable role for me.

Other than that, it's probably AR, Grenadier or Marksman.

And to add to the iron sights discussion: Yes to ironsights. It just feels more fun that way... Although fuck those tiny ass PIP sights...

I enjoy being a pilot every now and then. Over all, however, I more so enjoy (any) lead, marksman/sniper, grenadier, rifleman, in that order.

Playing as either the medic, Grenadier or AR/MG. However i prefer the medic because i enjoy that mix of being someone who's involved in firefights and after those firefights patches people up.

The AR, well - because of the big gun. RPK, my hands down favorite SAW (Squad Assault Weapon) and the MG because again - big weapon. Favorite LMG is the PKM..
And the Grenadier, well because you get to blow shit up with your AR.

FAC/RTO or pilot (depending on the aircraft). I personally like the FAC/RTO role the most as you have a important responsibility that doesn't require you to lead lots of people or make to many difficult decisions.

My favorite role is AR or MG the ability to be able to pin an enemy squad or such and allow your squad mates to take out the enemy or in other situation fall back under your fine makes you feel important in the squad, and that the squad is relying on you to make sure that you know how to use your weapon, and plus, fully automatic with about 200 rounds is awesome!

FO, FAC and/or JTAC. Calling in CAS and firemissions correctly on enemy positions while making sure nothing lands on friendly positions is one of the best feelings i know and its extremely rewarding watching things blow up! Good communication is your best weapon!

Either Automatic Rifleman, Basic Rifleman, or Pilot. The first two I would select due to their gravitation nature towards "supremacy through superior firepower". Especially the autorifleman due to the need for suppressive fire in engagements. However the rifleman is more mobile especially in CQB and flanking.

I like piloting just because of my great skills in controlling a helo with a joystick. I'm actually pretty skilled in landing in tight quarters and half landing a helicopter. (Half landing means to hover on a building with only half of the helicopter resting on the building)

I like leadership roles though I'm usually on exercises most weekends so struggle to join all the ops (sadly)!
