So in BF3, the support class can lay antipersonnel mines (claymores). He can also reload himself with ammunition, providing him with a never-ending stream of claymores, if he desires. How many of them actually persist on the map? If I run around the map and lay down 20 claymores, how many of them are actually there? All 20? The last X?

You can have a maximum of 2 claymores deployed at one time.

Additionally, claymores (unlike mines) do not survive your death, so plan accordingly.

As of the December 6th patch, claymores now survive your death.

Really? I'm fairly sure I've more than two out at a time.... – Albort Nov 14 '11 at 0:31
@Albort You can place more than two, but when your third hits the ground, your oldest one disappears. – Mr Smooth Nov 14 '11 at 1:28
