Even better if you could have a peek at the map for a minute or two in order to make your decision.

Great idea.

We should be able to have as many AI drones as needed to get all countries even.

Better yet, if you takeoff with drones in a pack of 3 like in any bombers, you get to be switched to your next drone when killed.

If countries are even, no more drones available.

If I was to implement this it would be a check box to auto select country. It would put you in the lowest country at entry into the arena, the end of every sortie and upon checking the box.

If you unchecked the box you could not change country for the normal change country time.
You also could not check the box until you normally would be able to change countries.

Also I may add a perk incentive to use this option.

Suggest you make this proposal more prominent!  Let some of the gang come up with all the things that might go wrong.  Initially, I like it, although I don't know how squad members and country-loyal people will view it.

People loyal to a chess piece do not care. They just don't have to check the box.

So with the check box check you would have the potential of switching to the low numbered side after every flight automatically, is that right?

It wouldnt effect squads at all. If you dont click the check box it works just the same as it does now.

To be able to use perks to lower switch time sounds great

The more perks the faster the swap

Also was thinking this might work well also if ENY is turned back on.

Check box sounds great!

I would not have to check the roster b4 determining who to fly with as it would always send me to the lowest side

For those who do not want the change they simply do not check the box and they can stay safe in their horde

Possibly changing after every sortie might get a little weird.  Maybe instead of autochanging, ask if they want to change instead?

Also I might put something in where if it's within a certain range of evenness (for example, +/- 10%) it wouldn't trigger?  If it works and lots of people are using it, if a couple sides are just bouncing between being the lowest numbers it might get into a situation where it ping pongs some people back and forth every sortie.

Sounds like complex work when you can just make the time switch rule for 3 hours.

Sometimes the lowest #s side doesn't always have the best fight. If it has no action people will log out anyway.

should have a percent buffer so if I'm helping capture a base and get killed, but the number have gone from +1 to -1 I don't get switch to the country I just trying to stop.

Buffer means numbers have to drop to 10 or 15 or 20 percent below the highest number before I'm switched.
