"So, what did you do all weekend?"
-"Oh, I was just hunting teenage girls for my armoured regiment."

Just don't sound right, does it? :P

Huh, interesting, didn't even know there was a problem with those.
But for the most part, I was just making a long-winded reference to Bridge on the River Kwai in any case.

Say, could we, perhaps, get a great big wooden one that you can run trains over, too? :P

Say, if you're going to strap a Hind to a baloon, why not turn the cockpit portion upside-down and fit the turret to slightly behind the pilot instead?

Ooooor maybe it was all because:
a) Because it's cool.
b) Because it adds a bit of depth.
c) Because they can.

So, is this the end of the Gazelle? Or just an extension of existing GLAir assets?

Oh, please! Just means you have to send one to trigger the launcher first.

Pity the game doesn't have an armour system. The thing should probably be capable of shrugging off a Goliath frontally.

Sounds like the low-tech and do-it-yourself ends of the game is finally getting fleshed out some more.
Which is rather nice.

And now I got myself thinking that these could do with variants with some sandbags and corrugated sheet thrown over them.

Because we all know corrugated sheet is an acceptable form of protective plating.

But think of the entertainment factor of having a crazy British guy with a bow and sword harping on about how "The bloody Yanks are gonna shorten the bloody war again!" every time you order him to attack something.

At first, I had expected a Mad Jack Churchill expy.

Honestly, I kinda find myself disapointed a bit, as a result.

Is this satisfactory?

I'd try myself to see if I can get it to work off of that, but that'd be work and I don't like work. :P

Nuttah @ Twisted Dawn: GDI Mission 6 Preview

Okay, that's interesting, I don't think I remember that mission. Was it added after you made mission selection available, or is it just my memory being the most glorious thing since Swiss Cheese?

Considered a great big flat plane/wide valley and an aircraft that literally flies "Nap-of-the-earth" the entire time, but the player can only see it as it flies into view, already on final approach, drops the goods, then disappears into the Fog of War before you can see it rise back up again yet?

(Since you seem to at least figure which workarounds could be used for it, and assuming it's actual altitude changes that are the problem, and not the cargo-terrain interaction.)

There's probably also several others. But the only I can think of at the moment is basically regular preconceived notions, coupled with a healthy helping of early 90s CGI budget.

Aren't the dropships in the normal game also flying 'empty' and scripted to spawn their selected cargo in on their LZ?
Or am I using different words for the same thing?

Side question: How impossible would coding in a low-altitude-parachute-extraction type drop in a semi-convincing manner? Completely and utterly?

Nuttah @ Twisted Dawn: GDI Mission 6 Preview

Yeah, but from what I heard of the C-17, I'd say you'll want to have a bloody fortress to actually land one, while a 130 should be capable of actually landing and taking off from a smaller, more rudimentary airstrip, instead of just flying over and tossing the cargo out the back with a parachute on the side, as it mostly seems to be done in game.

Not exactly only 'oddity' in the game. See also: M1A1 Abrams still mounting an L7 derivative 105mm rifled gun. Guess that's the price to pay for making media in a time before wikipedia? :P

Now all we need is a couple stationary C-130s to go along.
Actually, the "Stationary," part may be completely optional.

Now I'm starting to wonder how you'll tackle fully Temperate terrain. Then again, that might be the reason you're showing off the Nod missions first.

Thinking out loud: How many could you fit in a decently sized airframe with a cargo ramp?

Nuttah @ Rise of the Reds

Yeah, sure, but, in order of appearance, they're:
-A modernization of a design that had to soldier on through two economic crashes, used in a specialized role;
-Not supposed to get shot at, and it carries a huge load;
-We have reserves, and we're still cranking out more;
-A newer system mounted over the old one, because money;
-"****, they're ruining our ****, we need to get the old **** out to replace it before they clobber us to ****!"
-Again, not direct combat, and they needed something to counter the fact that the whole "Air Superiority" thing didn't exactly work out, while on a budget.

So they're mostly pretty sensible options for it, but I don't think that would apply to your mainline MBT in equal measure, for example.

And I doubt the Apache fits on an aircraft carrier as well as a Cobra, so its later life prospects probably aren't as good as the aforementioned Vietnam-vintage hull, for example.

As an extra tidbit, the Abrams, and all his contemporary buddies, would be about as old by the time the game happens as WWII equipment is now.
