Vehicles. Players would have a choice between a regular tank, or an APC. The purpose of a tank is to take out other vehicles, and blast apart enemy strongholds. The APC role would be to safely transport infantry, and give them supporting fire from their cannon/machine gun.
Tanks: Each tank will have their main gun, and a coaxial machine gun that fires at the same point. Instead of perks, players can pick two "attatchments" to customize their tank. In order to balance, players will forfeit their primary weapon (like a reverse One Man Army), and are restricted to handguns, machine pistols and shotguns. Perhaps as a "Pro" version of the tank perk, a third "attatchment" could be added. Also, the view is restricted to first person. Other players can ride on tanks (maximum of three on tanks), and give the tankers some protection from anti-tank teams. Tankers can also rapair their tank, but will have to get out and thus expose theirselves to enemy fire. Also, there will be a machine on the cupola (the second position in WaW's tanks) that the player can access by pressing the switch weapon button. This would be good for taking out enemies above the tank's arc of fire, and good against helicopters and such.
APC's: Same deal, though they can carry infantry inside and thus give them protection. A tactic would be to break through enemy lines and deploy soldiers in the middle of their formation.
"Attatchments": Speedloader (Tanks only; "Ordnance Training"), Greased Bearings (faster turret rotation, faster speed), Watercooler (decrease cool-down for machine gun/autocannon), Applique Armor (increased protection), Mine Plow (harmlessly detonates Mines, C4, and destroys any moronically placed Tactical Insertions. Also extends the "melee" range of the tank/APC).
