    Hiya guys, I'm back from a loooong hiatus (3.5 years) and I'm psyched to see all the new LA changes, new jump jets, the rocket tool, implants etc. I was really stoked to see Icarus because i heard so much about it from the beta; but I can't seem to figure out how to use them well. Any tips/guides or loadout recommendations?

    You can find some general tips here: http://iridar.net/planetside2/classes/light-assault/#Ability_Jet_Pack

    Current Icarus Jets are very different from the beta. They give you fast vertical climb, but nearly no horizontal movement. Short fuel supply, but quick recharge as well. Icarus would be best when you have to make a quick series of short vertical jumps. The problem is - in-game situations like that are few and far between.

    For most intents and purposes, Ambusher Jets are a direct upgrade over Icarus.
