I got this great idea.. could it be [COLOR=windowtext]possible[/COLOR] to make weapon drops like jeeps in bf2, so the commander marked a point and then a box with a MG or a antitank weapon(or both).. I thing that I would be nice… I really don’t know of they were dropt at the fronts, only that the were dropt for freedom fighters.. :confused: Comments.?

Well, the fallschrimjager dropped boxes of weapons, but thats only because they couldn't drop with them. Perhaps on fallschrim maps? :D Or maps with paratroops

It would not be realistic. Maybe in Parachute maps.

Airborne weapons drops would be cool on maps like a Market Garden, Crete or others.

HOWEVER: we currently have robot planes. Why not have robot trucks that drive by a certain spot designated by the commander and dump ammo, guns, fuel, whatever? Can't be that hard to spawn a truck, tell it to take the shortest possible route to point 'x' from offscreen, drop off some stuff, and retreat (assuming it's not blown up?)

Or robot boats for that matter? Envision a D-Day map where an LCVP or some such comes cruising up, dumps off a bunch of equipment and backs away?

Just some thoughts, the idea's good.

I really like the LCVP-idea! :)
