Its a violation of the Geneva convention to shoot paratroopers while in the air in transit to ground.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not really. Paratroopers are fair game. But you are required to use bird shot.

All 3 WG games avoid graphically depicting humans being killed and I admire that about them.

that is correct... in all wars,

missing men just went to magic land

no one got killed in wars

they just went to rainbow bridge

and sang pretty songs about candy

 

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

and so the 12 year old can play

Oh.. We have human pilots inside the planes. Players shoots other planes that have pilot in them, planes blow up with pilots in them.

It's not like we ride in empty open top TDs in WoT, or empty ships in WoWS; we have pilots and gunners that sit in the planes, and some are turning their heads too.

And this Paratrooper IBM game is not rated for adults only.

And they can make paratroopers Nazis, so it's good to shoot them.

Or Zombie or Vampire paratroopers.

Or better yet, let's put Robot/Terminators paratroopers, they are not humans at all. 

 

I think It would be very fun.

NO, it is not a violation of Geneva Convention.  

You CAN shoot paratroopers junping from a transport as they are invading troops.

You CAN'T shoot a pilot that had had to abandon his plane that was shot  down because is equal to a castaway.

omg...  what a great idea!      my dad flew c-47s in the south pacific, but afaik, never tugged a glider

 

instead of bomber flights every time, a CC could throw 20-25 gooney birds towing gliders at a cap, per a RNG roll

 

the gliders would just drift down toward the cap and if, say, 20% of them made it to the cap, it was captured 

 

BF, would you consider sending this to the team, please?

So basically you're suggesting a bomber whose bomb can be intercepted...

As if bombers aren't useless enough already.

An older game "Airwarrior" from Kesmai had C-47's who dropped paratroopers. That was how you took a base. You could kill the paratroopers to deny the enemy a capture.

But it was a constant battle. It never ended. There were no individual battles like in WOWP's.  :)

I'm suggesting more variety.

Maybe make special command centers bases that call for paratrooper bot planes only, not bot bombers like usual command centers.
