Have AI B-24s, with AI gunners, outfitted to fly low level resupply missions as part of supply system.

Similar to Operation CARPETBAGGER missions during WW2.

The CARPETBAGGER B-24s could be available to players to resupply, or drop "Joes" out the "Joe Hole" to capture bases.

A cargo hatch, called the "Joe Hole," replaced the B-24's ball-turret, and parachutists, called "Joes," dropped through it.

Leave that thing alone!
Relax said the Knight, man, we are programmed to receive.
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

I haven't tried, but it may be possible with C-47s.
There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!

The Halifax bomber, very similar to B-24, was used all over Europe to drop parachutists and supplies. I like this idea. We resup strats, but allow sup missions behind enemy lines.
