Im looking to spawn tanks that have no drivers. However with my system they dont spawn normally by being produced at a Factory, instead they are paradropped in via a transport plane. Because of this system you can Paradrop a unit anywhere on the map. To balance this I want to spawn the tank without a driver so you can either play it safe and spawn it near to your base or take a risk and spawn it near your enemy and hope you get there first. Can this be done and how?

Moving on from that, if it is possible am I able to limit the units which can be a driver of a tank. Ideally i'd like to have a "Driver" unit which were the only unit that can drive tanks since they had been trained for this and not just any regular infantry to be able to jump in and drive it. Once again is this possible and how?

You might be able to pull off the first part using some type of drone with a kill_pilot damage type. The second half is more difficult, and I don't know that you can limit the types of units that can enter a sniped vehicle.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.
