Policy

Weight

Infantry should not require frequent stamina breaks on account of a heavy loadout. An agile fighting force will be quicker in fulfilling their tasks and maintaining momentum over downtime and will help ensure that logistics hold a relevant role.

  • Loadouts without backpacks must not exceed 25 kg
  • Loadouts with backpacks, launchers, or belt or box machine guns must not exceed 37 kg*
    • *very occasional exceptions are made for roles such as Anti-tank (Heavy) launchers whereby the combined weight of a Launcher and Single Missile exceeds the weight limits. 
    • In these instances ensure that all steps have been taken to reduce weight through other means prior to submission of your request.

Void space

Void space is free space which exists in any compartment of a final loadout. Weight of loadouts is checked including void space, so when checking a loadout all void space must be filled and if the loadout exceeds standard weight limits once void space is filled then it is not permissible. This is important as infantry may fill void space even if it is left empty.
