If you’ve been playing Battlefield 5 since launch, you might have noticed that the characters for pilots and tankers are still locked to female characters only. While DICE has been fantastic in pumping out patch after patch on a regular basis, it seems giving players the option to switch pilots and tankers to male characters isn’t high on the studio’s to-do list.
Over on the Battlefield 5 subreddit, players have spoken out on this Battlefield 5 female soldiers as pilots and tankers thing, with most agreeing that this is something that should be available in the first place.
DICE, are you doing this out of petty spite?
It can’t be more than 5 minutes work replacing the models and voice lines.

For those hoping we’ll get a chance to change this soon, that might not happen for a while. As recent as this January, former DICE Global Community Manager Dan Mitre confirmed that he hasn’t heard any news on ability to customize pilots and/or tankers even if they know it’s a highly requested feature.
Will this feature be part of DICE’s plans for any upcoming patch? Your guess is as good as mine at this point. Having said that, it is more important that they change or add things that will benefit the gameplay first, no?
