I went out yesterday and shot our Double Trouble Alpha~five, we have installed two Flatline Barrels and two 450rd hoppers, this well give them added range and 900rds of ammo. As far as I know this was the first time it was ever shot and it worked great. But the equipment itself it was very heavy. As I imagined someone having to hump that beast all day, I’m sure some of you guyz could do it, but the question is would that be smart. I personally think that it would not make sense to do that. In my opinion “No”, I would opt to use this setup (the 900rds & two C02/HPA tanks), only when it’s mounted on a Tank. If where simply going to use it as one of our Heavy Guns, I would suggest that the operators go with the following setup, two 250rd Hoppers, Remote Line and as big an C02 and HPA tank as you can. With your extra paint/pods split up among the rest of your squad members.
That got me thinking about equipment and loadouts. I’m interested in everyone’s thoughts on this subject. This is, I believe critical to my next point, it’s important that everyone know the different roles not only the one your playing, but your should know and understand the role that other Squad members as well, understanding everyone's role will make us a stronger team and should someone go down or doesn’t show for a game, someone else can step in to the role more easily.

well you know me run and givin the opportunity to rock that heavy weapon, that would be sweet. I suppose for the majority of the day I or another SL could command and control properly for at least half the day before passing it if need be. Anyhow what ever fits would have to suffice. With that, you could always call for it, taking it off one of the tank for a mission specific purpose; i.e a hasty assault of an ambush were a tanks motor may give a position away, etc.
Now, givin one of the big joints like Vietnam P. that would work better mounted, so we'll need to reinforce the security perimeter of that weapon and adjust respectively
I'm with you on the load out for the heavy gunner approach, with the 250's and remote (xxx-LARGE TANK) would be the best outfitting
Quick Q: what's the twins trigger system, response or e-grip? I was thinking electric.

Their setup with E-grips...I don't know if they are using standard E-grips but I can tell you this. The guy you set them up did a heck of a job. Cause they seem to work much better then any grips I've ever owned.
