Cue ride of the valkyries



How it works,

The thunderhawks have a demolisher cannon with a very short range, which fires the "bomb" at anything below. As far as I know noone has done this before.


I know UA has airstrikes but this method has some advantages,


1. the aircraft can be shot down.


2. they can deploy troops, then make strafing runs to support them like real gunships.


3. they can use simple take off and landing animations like skimmers do, literally straight up and down.


I don't know animation. I hope someone can change the animation so they fly straight and I'm looking for volunteers. Making the turrets work would be a bonus.
