Gunships and Missile Strikes: Commanders versus building perches

Once the Commander is in the game at launch some strategies currently seen in the BF Beta will become less effective.  Commanders, at least any that have spent any amount of time in the game prior, will realize that these strategic locations will need to be watched, not just the flags.  The use of missile strikes and gunships will change the dynamic of the squad that spends all their time roosting like camouflaged vultures atop the nearest high-rise.

Granted there are already ways a good squad can deal with those choosing this approach, however I firmly believe a commander that have played the map beforehand as a soldier will be better prepared for the role of commander.  This is, of course, assuming that the role of commander matches the videoprovided on the BF4 site.

The point of this post is to stress the need for anyone intending to play commander to take the time to play the maps in game prior to taking the commander role.  A familiarity with the battlefield in each map will better prepare one for the commander role.  The commander screen appears to be a top down 2-D map similar to the old BF2 interface, so it is important to remember the third dimension.  Dropping a supply crate or tank in the wrong place could leave your troops staring at the aforementioned supply/vehicle sitting atop an unreachable location.  While potentially amusing it could result in negative consequences.
