I read on the replies to one of the BF4 multiplayer videos that there will be no jets in BF4. True or not?

Honestly I really wouldn't miss them if this turned out to be the case. Jets never really added much in the larger scheme of a game. They loiter up on the ceiling of the map whilst farming kills with their rockets all without any fear of reprisal save for another jet.

The attack helos fulfill the same ground attack role whilst remaining a more tangible element on the battlefield. Just increase bullet/missile velocities to realistic levels and you should have a nice balance of air/ground combat.

I think bc2 had it mostly right with air units. The attack helos were ridiculously strong when piloted properly with the hellfire/tracer combo that required some actual coordination.

At the same time tank guns often plucked them out of the sky and skilled at4 users could reliably destroy even the faster attack choppers who didn't actively avoid incoming missiles. Plus the stationary aa actually functioned as proper area denial for helos without being a problem for ground units.

keep calm, they would never take Jets away from a Battlefield unless its the Bad Company Spin off, which you only need it good helo pilots to rape the entire enemy team.

Concept art has a J-20, Chinese stealth fighter.

I doubt jets wont be in the game, Jet fighters have been in Battlefield 2 & 3. In 2142 the VOTL aircraft were half jet and half heli, and 1942 just prop fighters & bombers.

However it looks like they will have limited ammo, which will balance air units.
Battlefield is basically supposed to be the Black Hawk Down of shooters. Call of Duty is Rambo, and then ARMA is Band of Brothers or a documentary.

Not a battlefield without jets. I'm not a jet whore, I just cant understand the hate towards them. People who say "one man can dominate..." yes he can dominate, because he's developed a skill using it. If one person is good in a jeep and can dominate, should they be taken out too? Jets are available to both teams, so get in the air and destroy them if they're raping you. I honestly don't see the problem people have with jets and whatever else.

Hopefully. Good pilots are too dominant and bad / average pilots are a waste of space.

In my opinion the heli is far more powerful then the jet. It can constantly hover in one position and the gunner rapes everything with Tv and Gun. A jet needs to turn everytime to start a new attack run.

true but it is also an easier target than a jet, unless ur really really far away and ur playing HC and have eagle eye view and can score kills from afar.

I would like jets, only if they're well balanced. It's just hard to do so. I suggest that stigla's have a much bigger range for jets, while the range for helicopters is still limited.

stiglas need to be better...SOLUTION= have two people on opposite sides of the map: BOOM anti-air team. Back to original topic i am pretty sure there will be jets. Only thing they should change is that the jets should be balanced and one jet is not always dominate Ex: f-18>flanker

Nope, there will be jets, as seen from a screenshot, it said Ground Attack Jet, which means there could be two types of jets.
