    • European Doctrine Stealth Bomber

      Hello,

      This is something that has bugged me for quite some time. The Stealth Bomber unit in the European Doctrine is completely messed up. The unit is the SR-71 Blackbird.




      This remarkable aircraft was used by the USAF in the 20th Century as a spy plane. It was incredibly fast (the fastest thing on earth in its' time) and effective. However, its' place in CoN is terrible!

      Firstly, it has not been operated since 1999.
      Second, it was operated ONLY by the United States Air Force and NASA. So it was never operated by any other nation, let alone a European country.
      Third, and most importantly, it was a spyplane, NOT a bomber! No SR-71 was ever built that was even capable of carrying any type of payload or bomb!

      This unit desperately needs to be replaced with an actual bomber, preferably on still used today and by European nations.

    • I just don't get this. I have fun, but in no way feel this is the type of immersion style game, so, the counters (icon or names) don't matter to me at all, especially in light of bigger problems like the drop-out rates. You could have a clown-face with "stealth bomber" written on it, and I'd still enjoy this game the same amount. (possibly more) because I look at this as a strategy game, not a simulator.

      And anyhow, sometimes something may not actually exist within a "doctrine", then what? Do like Dorado has done and jam something/anything in there? Or should they just make crap up?

      I understand that people's priorities and reasons for playing the game widely vary. However, you are going to the opposite of what you seem to view as an extreme. Dorado could have, for example, simply used a stealth bomber used in Europe from other regions of the planet. I see no reason for you to take such offense at a simple suggestion to improve the quality of the game.

      LOL! Ho brother, I'm not offended, in fact if you critically examine my post, you will see that I'm saying what they did is really no big deal, and maybe YOU shouldn't take it so hard. Offended, ... LOL!

      I'm not sure. Quite a while back I stopped giving people the power to control how I feel. Being offended is the ultimate act of surrendering your own mind to the power of another. So, to answer your question, I'd say your best bet is a time machine.

      That's good advice.

      Almost any time you see what might appear to be outrage from me, well it's just internet schtick. I'm really a pretty mellow laid back dude.
