I am a complete and utter skyguard whore. I actually like it more than flying now, which is probably a pretty decent indicator that's it's gone a bit too far. The real question is how to balance it without returning to where we came from - a pack of dedicated anti-aircraft units incapable of dropping a fighter on a pass.

Things I don't want to see:
  • A return to ridicu-recoil
  • Further reduction in rounds per magazine

Things I won't like but will probably have to happen:
  • Damage per round reduction

Things I think would be a better alternative:
  • Passive threat indicator on HUD - all aircraft on the continent receive obvious and continual spot data on any hostile skyguards that have been tagged with Q. Warning lights, buzzers, etc.
  • Threat radar module - when equipped, all active enemy skyguards show up on HUD

In the real world, AAA is deadly but very avoidable. That's not a bad model to emulate. If your ground team is spotting the lightnings, you should never be surprised by 40 rounds in your hull again.

This would also be a fantastic idea. Wholeheartedly supported.
