A Special Op Surge is a mini event that War Commander ran for a limited duration. During this time period one specific rare Special Op will have its chances of winning "Dramatically Increased" when you destroy Rogue Faction Bases that follow that Surge's criteria.
The normal Map Speed of a Platoon will influence that same Platoon's Map Speed when being transported by the Chinook. Example: A Chinook carrying a Rocket Buggytravels faster than a Chinook carrying a platoon of Behemoths.
When the Chinook is transporting a Platoon with more than one type of Unit its Map Speed is derived from that of the slowest Unit in the Platoon.
The Chinook's Platoon Icon always show it carrying aHumvee regardless of the actual Units being transported. This provides the Player with the side benefit of disguising the true content and strength of a Platoon from Enemy Players.
