Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary): Let marines perform an insanely tactical SADAR reload for their fellow specialists.
Liek dis Image

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole): Promotes teamwork and cooperation among muhreens!

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc): Let marines reload other person's SADAR simply by clicking on them with a rocket. That kind of reload will take way less time due to magical powers of cooperation and friendship.

Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it): Coding, i guess.

I seriously can't see any reason for this other than how cool it'd be. However! The SADAR and it's ammo is unique to specialists and SLs only, and what sets this apart from the standards is the SADAR spec has to fill their entire satchel full of rockets for reloads. Where I'm going with this is Marines might just take whatever rockets they find, randomly reload a SADAR with an incorrect rocket (SADARs can't be unloaded), or even get caught in the backfire SADARs cause now if you're standing close by the user. I'm leaning for a neutral on this one.

All these things like backfire and reloading with wrong ammo type can be avoided by using t e a m w o r k, communicating with each other. It's not hard at all to get yourself a combat buddy who is smart enough to carry your bag of rockets, don't stand in backfire zone and notice you when you're yelling something like 'LOAD HE'.

I'll give a tentative +1 if only to give standards a reason to assist their Spec beyond carrying their stuff.

1)any spec who leaves rockets on the floor DESERVES to load the wrong rocket
2)how are they going to get caught in the backblast if there's no shell in the SADAR hmm?
