I know Bowman as do a few of the other lads from previous units that used it. We use to use it and did from the outset of bowman and we never had any problems with it or any bugs. For me personally I think it rivals ACRE if not surpasses again this is what I think. There is so much you can do with the Bowman radio (and for those who have used it in the BAF will find it familiar)
I for one would love to see this being used in the 6th. I think a good compromise would be us starting to use it on PvP maybe or non mission night gameplay so everyone gets the feel and unofficial training on it. Then on missions the normal ACRE maybe.
As a warning I will be starting mission making and I will be using this as one of my mods
