Plane Sups
« on: March 22, 2024, 02:21:10 PM »
How about plane sups that can be ferried out to your ditched aircraft via M3 or Storch so you can successfully return to base rather than lose 5 kills because you survived longer than you thought you would and ran out of fuel (or forgot to up the fuel load after trying to make your jug  "more maneuverable").   :devil

Could also simulate ferrying a mechanic out to refill the engine with oil and banging on the engine with a wrench (you are using a radial, right?) after one of those nefarious 109s or 190s (or misguided Spit pilots) luckily put a cannon slug in your engine.

Would foster a sense of camaraderie with the GV guys also.

Or maybe if you were able to make it back on foot you would still get credit? I'm pretty sure if you got 5 kills and bailed out that they would still count as kills when you got back to your base :)

rather than lose 5 kills

I got good news for you: You never lose any kills in AH. You only lose bragging rights with the missing landed kills arena message. And yes, some of your score points of this sortie, but that's all.  :old:

I just hate leaving a perfectly good jug out there in the woods, lol.

Not necessarily bad idea. If one has landed in a place where TO is possible, why not.

Its been asked for before in a number of different forms. Hitech said it was part of the challenge to manage your plane to have enough gas or parts to get back and ON the runway.

Doesn't seem like it would be very hard to add the same function that sups do to vehicles to planes. Doesn't sound like a coading issue.
