Just a thought:





Galaxy
Source: Common Pool
Type: Drop ship
Role: Troop Transport
Primary Weapon: 75mm Cannon x2
Handling: Very Poor

The Galaxy drop ship is the heaviest troop insertion and extraction aircraft. Designed to carry a full squad of players (one pilot, two gunners, four passengers, two heavy armors, and a light tank or buggy with driver, passengers and gunner), drop ships can easily deploy a fairly substantial force within a short amount of time. The Galaxy utilizes two 75mm cannons in its gunner positions for point defense against ground vehicles.




Lightning
Source: Common Pool
Type: Light Tank
Role: Attack & Escort
Primary Weapon: 75mm Cannon
Secondary Weapon: Light Rotary Chaingun
Handling: Good

The Lightning is a single seated mini tank. Fairly fast, but only lightly armored, Lightnings are suited to running escort or in packs. It is outfitted with a 75mm cannon as its primary weapon, and is also equipped with a secondary light rotary chaingun. Both weapons are mounted on a forward facing turret that offers a limited field of fire to the driver.





Note that the Lightings PRIMARY weapon and the two guns the galaxy has are the same? What now brown cow?!

all that tells us is that the galaxy is built to shoot at the ground, not other aircraft

Yes that means they are the same but look at the lighting. It's a light attack escort tank. So the galaxy might have twice the firepower of a Lighting but that just means it's 2xlight attack escort.

If you look closely at the pictures of the galaxy, you see that the 2 guns are coming from the bulky area on the ends of the wings. They point outward.

So you are never going to be able to bring more than one gun to bear on a single enemy. You are also not going to be able to shoot targets that are directly in front, directly behind, directly above or directly below the galaxy.

So what you need to do is cover directly in front, back, top, and bottom with mosquitos. All that firepower should defend a galaxy quite well.

Passengers wanted.


I'm wondering what it's like inside that whale of a plane...

do you just stare at each other and hope you make it to the dropzone? Would suck for the infantry in the back to be blown up without even knowing what was going on

But if they can jump that shows a lack of faith in the pilots skills to get them out alive.

I don't know, I would think it to be pretty funny if one of my passengers bailed and then reinforcements showed up to save the flying brick (galaxy).

Parachuets would be awesome though.

There are no parachutes. However there are some form of "jets" that slow your decent when you bail out of a Mosquito or somthing. As for passengers bailing out of a galaxy. I dont know if that is possible
