Air-Sea rescue mission, this would be AWESOME!
 
The game will have AI versions of the Supermarine Walrus (pictured behind Bf-110) and possibly He-115 (some in-progress images posted in past).

Scenario:
You pilot is shot down over channel and is now playing in a rubber dinghy.
You "borrow" another avatar to mount a rescue, with an escort of fighters.

Success: you continue with your player character with little loss to player.
Fail: Loose lots of points, or the character.


Can extend to Online play too!
"Save Herr Galland!"

This could end up in a "chute" debate.

Doing BOB It was ordered to the RAF to shoot down German rescue planes because the british suspectet that the rescue planes was doing abit spyjobs....

This is like the debate in silenthunter about lifeboats, yes/no

Personaly i dont shoot "chutes", i never shoot a plane marked with green or red crosses dont bomb hospital ships. Didnt even bomb a fieldhospital in a online campaign. You cant avoid it 100%, but i dont use crosses as aiming points.

Im the type who leave a black smoking plane and dont use ammo on making sure hes going down. My job is to disrupt the enemy from doing hes job, not looking at an ace ladder...

Ace ladder?
You know, if I was a brit, I would shoot down rescue planes. I would also seriously think about shooting enemy parachuters, considering the fact that they were firebombing civilian targets/london and killing tens of thousands of people. If its strictly military on military then kicking someone when they are down is dishonorable and inhumane (ie parachute shooting, hitting field hospitals, shooting POW), once they start targeting non-combatants it changes things. (Or if I was alive at the time, I believe for me it would).

On the other hand if I was a german I would not shoot british shutes in the bob, but then again I wouldnt be participating in the bombing either.

lol......Im talking about the virtual world, how i do my online gaming. And loads and loads of online players do look at the ace ladder (point whores) kill freaks etc....

In RL it was an order that gave permission to shoot down S and R planes...it didnt come from pilot to pilot but from high command.

I dont look at my actions and hold them against RL, and i dont use history books to explain my actions. Im not old enough to have lived ww2, i have books and games, but i dont use the books for my game ;)

AFAIK It wasn't due to "Spying" it was due to the fact that any rescued pilot could be back in action against England. Went both ways I suppose, inevitable consequence of war, similar to when I met my wife, starts out ok but soon turns nasty :)

Ah ok dw then, it was more personal musing then anything else.

@Sauf - lmao :P

Yep, the following thing would be chute-shooting brit-pilots because they just get a new plane and get up again.
A sick thing, imho.

As Britain prepared for the final stand against invasion, one of the less orthodox weapons to be considered was the "Para-slasher".
It was invented by a WW1 veteran, Squadron Leader George Lowdell, Commending Officer of 7 EFTS at Desford in Leicestershire.
Effectively a farmer's scythe on an 8ft pole : it was designed to hinge down below a Tiger Moths fuselage and cut through a descending paratrooper's canopy,
or to harry forces on the ground. In the hands of Lowdell, an acknowledged pre-war 'crazy flying' expert, the Paraslasher proved surprisingly effective.

...George Lowdell practising on a life-size canvas of Mussolini.............................The blade retracted.................................................. ............Lift the handle, push downwards to lower the blade.

Now thats slightly disturbing...

I think that's a great idea, especially for those of who like to fly DID campaigns.

That was against ParaTROOPERS, with guns and nades.
Not pilots trying to save thsemselves.

...for the most part.

Game should penalize para shooters, easy enough.

Rank Ladders or Squaddie in the water, no question it will add a new mission profile, and possibly the first ever where you mount a rescue mission for yourself! ;)
