Please note that these figures are still preliminary and it would be advisable for teams to initially target their models to be 75-80% of the stated recommendations. Also of note is the fact that these figures are intended to get the most out of the Battlefield 2 engine, which is designed to support 100+ players in expansive environments with a mix of urban and open settings.

Also see the Polycount Guidelines for a more detailed breakdown of the polycounts. As has been said before, there are many factors that affect performance, so these are more suggestions than hard rules. You will have to use your own judgement and do lots of testing to arrive at the best solution for your situation.
