Carrier Class Gunship?
« on: February 25, 2013, 12:43:46 pm »
This is an idea I've been toying with in my mind (and I'm pretty sure it was in the old forums, but I cannot find it right now), but there have been times when your crew is being manned by 3 gunners and a pilot (or 2 gunners and 1 engie and a pilot). In my experience, these setups are not ideal, and I was thinking of a way to balance things out for these types of crew arrangements. The idea that I came up with was a small carrier class airship that housed 2 1 man planes that can detach and harass a target with small weapons fire. Thoughts?

I'm personally not keen on adding fixed-wing flight because the physics tends to be unforgiving of lag and dropped connections.

Yeah, I can see where the lag issues could cause an issue. However, I think it could change the dynamic up and can provide some different tactics
