    1. Introduction
    ------------------
    Ahh The Special forces kit. My favorite kit next to the Support
    kit, Anyway the Spec ops kit is the most versatile kit in the game
    if you learn to use it right, with a High accuracy rifle and some
    C4 Charges when you need to make some noise your all set to go.
    The Perpose of this guide is to teach you how to use the Spec ops
    Kit to its Maximum Potential so you dont become a liability to your
    Team. Please be aware that this guide is but a tool, to become better
    your just going to have to practise yourself in the field.

    3.Spec ops Unlockables.
    ------------------------
    
    H&K G36C

    Almost as Accurate as the Chinese Carbine this gun is the most 
    popular unlock among players and has very good accuracy when 
    bursting from any range.

    Clip size- you guessed it.....30
    Rate of fire- medium
    
    
    FN Scar-L (Special forces unlock requires G36C to unlock)
    -------------
    Dont Unlock this. While being more powerful then the G36C it 
    suffers from a slow fireing rate, lower then average accuracy 
    and to top it all off it looks ugly!
    
    Damage- Medium
    Accuracy- Medium
    Clip Size- *Yawn* 30
    rate of fire- slow
    
    
    4.Spec Ops Tactics
    ---------------------
    The bread and butter of this guide here im going to tell you how
    to effectively use a Spec ops kit.
    
    
    Spec ops kit Charecteristics
    --------------
    Long sprint distance
    Accurate Rifle
    C4 Charges
    Invisability to UAV and Scans when not moveing.
    No armor
    
    You need to learn to use each of these to your advantage to
    become an expert spec ops player. Haveing no armor means you
    gotta get in and out of their fast and take as less hits as you
    can. 
    
    As A spec ops try to keep your enemies at range thats why you have
    an accurate low damage rifle, To pick off enemies one at a time from
    a distance. While you can fight in close quarters it will only get 
    you killed fast because of your lack of body armor.
    
    Search and destroy, You have C4 charges so try and sneak around and
    blow up the enemy commander assets.
    
    Support your squad, To support your squad as a spec ops try to 
    sneak up and place C4 charges on any vehicles keeping them pinned
    Tanks and APCs require 2 charges while anything elce only needs 1.
    
    How to use your rifle
    -------------
    As I said before keep em at a distance and burst or single shot to
    take them down. Your Rifles do low damage so make every bullet count!
    
    Shots to kill an unarmored target- 4
    Shots to kill an armored target- 6 
    
    (This is assumeing they are at full Health)
    
    What kind of squad should I work with?
    --------------
    
    Try to find a squad with VOIP and some support players a squad only
    needs 1 spec ops player so avoid squads with more then 1 of them.
    
    Aim for the head
    --------
    When at close range aim for the enemys head it doubles your 
    surviveability and triples your damage.
    
    I will add more to this section as I get some reader tips.
    
    
    5. C4 Tactics
    ----------------
    These things make big explosions and you can only carry 5
    of them at once so make em count.
    
    
    Destroy Commanders assets
    -----------------
    Try to sneak behind the enemy lines and destroy their key commander
    assets if you can take a support player with you and have him give you
    more C4 ammo otherwise you will only be able to destroy 2 assets in one
    trip.
    
    Another alternative is to ask the commander for a supply drop.
    
    Or an even better alternative is to wait for the enemy commander 
    to drop supplies  to repair his assets then take some C4 from the
    supply drop and destroy them again. :)
    
    Be aware that once you destroy an asset it is announced to each 
    member of the enemy team so get out of their fast if you can.
    
    you are awarded 1 point per asset destroyed.
    it takes 2 charges to destroy an asset.
    
    
    Blow up Bridges!
    ---------------
    Blowing up strategic bridges may hamper the enemy vehicle 
    transportation lines, giveing your team an advantage in the 
    long run.
    
    BE CAREFUL not to blow up bridges your team may be useing.
    
    It takes 3-4 charges to destroy a bridge.
    
    Unfortuneatly you dont get any points for wreaking a bridge.
    
    
    Take out vehicles
    --------------
    If the chance arrises sneak up to a vehicle and take it out with
    some charges.
    
    It takes to charges to take out a Tank or APC .
    
    (Assumeing they are at full armor)
    
    One charge for anything elce.
    
    
    Booby Trap vehicles
    ---------------
    If you sneak into an enemy base try to place charges on freshly 
    spawned vehicles, then wait until an enemy or two gets in them
    and then push the button. :)
    
    Suicide jeeping
    -----------------
    A rather hated tactic but an effective one.
    
    Take a quick moveing jeep or Fast attack vehicle and place
    some charges all around it and drive into enemy vehicles or
    groups of enemys and detonate this will always get a few quick
    kills.
    
    Try to take out at least 2 people per suicide as its the only 
    way to actually gain points.
    
    This tactic is sure to piss off a few people :) 
    
    Tactic thanks to Lord Arkaine
    ----------------------
    Use the Last C4 trick. C4 Can be dropped four times and
    each time the detonator must be slowly taken out, But the 
    fifth C4 will instantly Activate the detonator, allowing you
    to blow it without much pause. This is very handy when you dont
    have time to plant then switch to blow.

    Expert Esplosives tip Thanks to UICnDUBBLE
    ---------------------
    Find a 64 man server that has no more then 20 people in it.
    Suicide jeep like there is no tomorrow. Try to approach from
    behind the enemy lines because they are expecting you to 
    approach from the front.
    
    
    Thats it for the awards you can earn as a spec ops.

    This section includes tips that are misc and dont fit in with

    Tip Thanks to UICnDUBBLE
    ------------------
    "I know that friendly fire is turned off on 99% of ranked servers,
    but some run without it, so its worth mentioning, even for unranked
    play: detonateing a few C4's while standing on them to shoot yourself
    onto normally unreachable rooftops. This, Coupled with the accuracy
    and decent damage from the G36C = a lot of kills."
