Just an idea... I know that at least German Panzergranadiers used Rubber Boats to cross rivers. And I would imagine that so did the other countries... Wouldn't it be nice if you could run down to the beach, wait untill your cover fire have gained effect, and then deploy your rubberboat (just like you deploy a MG) and sail across along with your mates?

Actually Pioniers used the inflatable boats.

sounds like a decent idea, but I'm not sure about making at a spawnable class. However, on the subject of rubber boats. Can it be possible in making the shipborne spotter planes beeing able to drop rubber boats for downed pilots/crew?

It's possible. In EoD the medevac Huey has a similar feature.

yeah, that is what I was thinking! It would be cool, and the frontal MG on the Swordfish is not very usefull either way, so just replace the firing, with an deployable raft!
