I had the idea when reading another post about making vehicles out of ordinary vehicles such as diggers. Great idea but i also think that we could mold that idea into something better. Rather than making an ordinary vehicle into a tank, why not just make something that looks like a tank but can only move. Get 5 or 6 of them in your army and use them as a decoy. Move them too the west of the battlefield, make your enemy think that you are going to attack there but instead, move your real army too the east. This will give you time too gain ground as your enemy would then have to move across the map too stop you.
This would add a whole new level of skill and strategy too the game, Offensively and Defensively. It would be all about calling your opponents bluff. You need too work out if those tanks are decoys or not and then work out where the enemy is truly headed. You could, for example, Send in a group of tanks that look identical too the decoys first, your enemy would presume that that's the decoy, they'll go in the opposite direction, out pop the rest of your army.
Also, decoys would be fairly easy too make. All they need is a health bar and movement. No weaponry so the hardest part such as animations would not be necessary (except for movement). The other good thing about designing these is you won't need too. You can just take a model of another tank, take out the weapon scripts and animations, etc and voila, you have your decoy .
To summarize, a decoy would be easy too design and add more strategy and skill to the game.
