Air Support Markers aka Flares and Smoke

(1) In-game name & Steam ID (can be obtained by the TAB menu in game, or by using 

Name: TSGT Royal

Steam ID: STEAM_1:0:155729124

(2)Your suggestion: 

Add the Flare gun to more jobs (Specifically high tiered jobs/AF Jobs) Since its useful to mark locations for EVAC and For a Gun run/Air strike. 


Add this addon (there might be better ones) That adds colored smoke.

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition: 

For one we have flares they are lore friendly and they aren't used too much. They are a way for players to light up area's and also mark things for others like pilots or naval. They do minimal damage even if you stand on them. One or two rounds doesn't cause much lag (While 50 or 30 do) so just give everyone that has them like 3 rounds.

The smokes on the other hand could easily mark attack positions like they do currently in the military this could add more tactics and make everyone's job easier instead of needing a huge red laser to point out the way. 

It would also help Naval/Pilots significantly with PID mark friendly in blue smoke and enemy in red smoke and if anyone Team kills after that then there is something seriously wrong with them. 

What's scarier then a flare getting called on your position? A shit ton of red and purple smoke with Spec Ops inside it! 

(sadly I doubt NPC's would lose line of sight with them however this could help Game makers reduce the problem of NPC's feeling like they get spawned out of nowhere)

(4) List what you think (if any) could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added: 

Flares might damage players a little occasionally.

Lots of flares (like 30 or 50) could cause lag.

Smoke might cause lag.

I've wanted this for a long time, I couldn't find the right flares for it, I'll take a look at these ones and see if they can be used without lag.
