    Idea for new marine feature

    I will be short on explanation.

    Airborne troops.

    No....

    AIRBORNE TROOPS!!!

    I imagine that like dropship attachement that allows PO to drop marines to the ground due flyby missions.

    This can extend strategic potential of marines and give them more mobility. Since the main marine tactics is a turtle defense (i think 70% of all times), i imagine that is a good tweak to add some action to gameplay. Potentially it will allow to break through this boring bottleneck sieges.

    The main question is how you will designate drop zone.

    The first idea it's a red dot mode on bino. The worst thing about it, that's seriously limits the field of application.

    Second idea, drop zones will be static and will be scattered around the map from the beginning. For example this can allow you to drop scout group before main drop or drop squad for potential flank.

    It's just depends on how you will use it.
    If marines have enough coordination with CIC, then xenos can turn into fast food. But ofcourse if you will drop bunch of giggling baldies right to xeno positions, that's will be disaster.

    That would be a good idea. Transport PO always gets boring as you only need to click a button to get to the LZ and back to the DS pad on the Almayer.
    Executing drop missions to the maps would be good as you can execute flanks and potentially win the operation.

    Should make it so the CO and the XO or whoever is aCO can mark a location on the map, dropping the DS there. PO should launch it there and execute the airbone mission.

    Just gonna tell you right now that if this gets added you better hope it's not static positions on the map, unless you plan to drop off only the most unga of ungas in large groups.

    This was mentioned in the most recent dev Q&A. This, or something like it, is indeed planned for eventually™

    This has so much potential for both good and bad. Especially if you could airdrop... oh, I dunno... the tank.
