Copters only suck when climbing, not at level flight at any height. Generally planes and attack copters are below you, deffinately if your at 300ft, it is risk free so long as you can break the 200-250ft barrier where they will shoot you.
Speed is the same at any height assuming level flight, potentially faster if dropping from 300ft to a flag, height doesnt effect speed, its governed by the angle of attack.

your climbing just about all the time to reach that lvl & once there can hardly see jack. No point & no if your climbing & are doing 150-100 & a jet gets on your ass before you get high you're dead & your also the best target for a laser guided bombs from a gunship. If your climbing & try to dive the missile will hit you before you get anywher because your slow & can't duck behind cover. Been there done that lol

High air raping is an option but a jet can still easily get to your height & kill you. Done it my self.

I think what bzb is suggesting is that once you hit a certain height then fighters won't even notice you, they rarely go above a certain height unless doing fancy maneuvers, at which point they're going to care more about the missiles on their back than your helicopter. The trick is just getting high enough before someone in a jet sees you or pays you too much attention. Once there, no one else is likely to come up to check if someone's hovering around.

The tactic itself sounds really cool. I wouldn't mind giving it a go if we can get a squad onto a server sometime.

Oh, and btw, does this forum mean the TGU is going to start a BF2 clan? Not sure if i'd be fully committed to one, but the chance to squad up with anyone who can show some actual squad cohesion and bring doom and destruction to the public ranked servers would be welcome. :D

Yes, on both counts.

Clan wise im not thinking anything formal, just being able to meet up with peeps you know on a server for some laughs.

Just remember, any BF1942/BF:V/BF2 pilot worth half his left arse cheek will be checking high alt for Halo drops. Especialy since the 21CW tournement is BF2 now. When Im flying a Fighter in '42 or now BF2 (demo :( ) I go High, usualy as close to the cieling as I can. Too many times has a single Apache climbed up to the cieling and hid in a corner, keeping the bleed so slow its intolerable. And BZB, Try loading a Hind with a 8 guys, getting in the middle of the map, then HALO'ing to every flag on the map simultaneously. Thats a rush in '42 with the DC mod, wonder how well it will translate to BF2 :ninja: :eviltail:
