Sensor and Repair VTOLs

Post by richard14110 » 31 Dec 2013, 19:19

If repair VTOLs existed, those vehicles could rapidly fly to units that are at a remote distance from the base and increase the health of allies. A sensor VTOL can infiltrate/fly above enemy structures and target vital buildings with indirect firing weapons that are assigned to it.

Repair VTOL: Might be a bit janky, as presently VTOLs act like fixed-wing craft. Furthermore, there's more utility to having the repair unit directly down with the units, as this would make it less vulnerable and allow for concentrated repairing.

Sensor VTOLs: Added utility as scout planes. I could see some balance issues, though, as it would be very hard to detect and intercept in comparison to a normal sensor-equipped ground unit. Perhaps don't allow players to directly link artillery to it, and/or have a special "Optics Suite" that simply lets it act as a scout plane.

Sensor VTOLs would prove extremely useful when scouting due to the land that it can cover quickly. But it would require a large amount of research to get it and would only appear quite late in the game when most of the map has already been scouted :annoyed:
