It seems evident to me they are scrapping the cavalry class in BFV. It would make sense as horses had a negigible combat role in WW2. (Mind you, they WERE used in combat to some extent by the Russians, the Poles, the Italians and from what I hear even the Germans early in the war). I hope they keep the cavalry class. I think it is a good idea and I give the following reasons as to why:
1) In actual history most cavalry units became either mechanized or ceremonial. It makes sense to me to KEEP it in BFV as assigned to Light Armoured Vehicles just as happened irl.
2) Continuity. 4 infantry classes plus 3 vehicle classes in BF1 each with a different role. Should be the same in BFV. Cavalry assigned to Light Armoured vehicles would have a much different role than heavy armor tanker class(flanking, scouting, use of speed as a weapon).
3) Dedicated cavalry players might choose to stay in BF1(I'm pondering this myself) if their class disappears altogether. However, if the class is kept in BFV in some form, cavalry class players might be lured to fhe new game.
4) If you keep only 2 vehicle spawns available, BF1 vehicle players plus new players will crowd those spawns. Keeping a 3rd vehicle class will likely reduce the posibility of that happening.
What do you guys think? Help me spread the word if you agree with me. Let us save the cavalry class!
