Is it possible to suppress the mobile spawn ability of fireteam leaders while they're "wearing" pilot kits? Right now, you can't paradrop and cap flags with pilot kits, but this just encourages the (IMO) even cheesier tactic of having whole squads spawn out of nowhere on paradropped SLs. Of course the SL could still paradrop, kill someone, steal his kit and teleport his squad in, but at least he'll have an harder time trying to kill someone with only a pistol.
I agree to this suggestion, although it has never happened to me when playing (at least not that I know of). but thumbs up for this!
Making SLs unable to enter planes would do it for me. I dont se any real excuses for SLs flying anyway...

And why would the airforce need a squad?

To talk to eachother using VOIP?
Or to allow the commander or fireteam leader to assign targets to the bombers on plane-heavy maps like El Alamein. In fact, this would be a nice idea, in my experience planes in public play tend to just wander around looking for kills... ;)
BTW, placing an objective marking helps a lot when dive bombing from above sight range/clouds. So, aviation fireteams are useful.
And, of course, in certain future campaigns, we could have airborne assaults. The squadleader flying a C47 around and his squad members spawning inside the plane and parachuting down to cap a flag.
Sorry, didnt think about high altitude bombing nor about VoIP. What I dont like is SLs dropping on flags and conjuring 5 fully armed men out of nowhere...
