We need these as air targets in normal battles.  I want so much the satisfaction of bearing down on a dirigible and shoot it down.

Actually over a HQ this would be quite realistic and reasonable.  Balloons with steel guide lines where used for defense.

He is not suggesting that we the players be in the balloons or control them, they are there as aerial targets just like we have AA, HQ, and Ships for the ground. Only difference is it would be in the air for a new and revolutionized game-play.

I agree with this suggestion +1 I hope the Developers take this into consideration. It would be an interesting addition and make for more unique game play.

Having a couple over the HQ seems reasonable if they can stop bombs. This will make people think twice before high alt bombing and actually try low alt.

Absolutely, I could go with this.  It would also give newbies a couple more "air targets" to practice on.  Yes, they would be stationary, but some practice is better than no practice.

No, I am not suggesting that we have player-controlled balloons.  They would be static targets, something that can spot incoming planes and add some world war 1 and 2 era flair.  And count as a target kill, of course.

I would love to shoot some incendiary rounds at a blimp and have it blow up right as an enemy is flying near it and also take out the enemy as well.... Yes we need blimps. It's a fighters only chance to  "bomb" kill the other team. muu haa haaa haaa.

What about directly above the buildings but not obstructing the runway? Could be done.

I'd love to see barrage ballons over the bases and cities. Add a bit more challenge and danger for low level bombers and dog fights.

Also, on maps where appropriate, like Bay and Pacific, they could put in moving derigibles, like the Navy anti-sub patrol air ships.
Ignorance is its own death sentence.


Reality overrides theory. And intelligence.
