Kharg Island tips

While Kharg Island is primary a vehicle map, infantry plays a big part as well. Because of much cover on almost all flags, there is plenty of opportunity for ambush and flanking of tanks and other vehicles. The main action usually happens at the Construction site and Offices points, which are the most important, and hardest, flags to capture and defend.


Kharg Island is a vehicle heavy map, and each side have plenty of tanks, jeeps and aerial firepower.
