EQUIPMENT - Infantry Stealth Uniforms update April 02 2019
Stealth uniforms are not always available, it depends on what faction you are playing and the layout as well (lite or regular)
I consider stealth uniforms very usefull if you mean to patrol an area standing in a distant (500 to 2000 mts away) high position for a long time or if you need to destroy a thermal equipped vehicle being forced to spawn close to it: very often gunners use thermal sight to better identify the spawning players. A stealth uniform will give you the time to spawn, aim and shoot before you are localized by it, normally.
Stealth uniforms will MAY lead you to survive longer only against the enemy using thermal devices: drones, light or heavy vehicles, gunships, armored boats, Titan AP and Vorona rockets, Snipers nightstalker equipped (very rare since this scope is very expensive) and players with Laser Designators or ENVG. Once they use Night Vision (in darkness) or normal sight (in daytime) you will be visibile anyway.
PS: don't also forget to buy a balaclava with goggles to render your face and eyes thermally invisible too.
Prices and availability in regular layouts:
Blufor = 8K about
Redfor = 25K about
AAF and Rebels (green teams) = not available
Stealth uniforms are not available in Lite layouts
Prices and availabilty differences are being decided by admins to compensate balance in between the two fighting factions.
