Paratroopers are getting ready to jump! In the next build named Quesada (after the United States Army Airforce general Elwood Richard Quesada) paratroopers will fly back into action!
Jump into action!
If you have an Infantry soldier at rank 7 or above you can transfer him to the paratroopers! Paratroopers are not as heavily armed as other soldiers and cannot carry Machineguns, Panzerschreck/Bazookas so if you have purchased a lot of heavy equipment for your soldier, it might be an idea to play another soldier up to rank 7 and convert him. Or if you don’t have the time for that you can buy an academy trained paratrooper for gold. Keeping at least one normal infantry soldier is always a good idea to help minimize waiting times when EVERYBODY wants to play with a specific type of soldier.
Along the reintroduced paratroopers we have also opened up for uniform personalizations. If you want to stand out from the crowd you can customize your paratrooper with special uniforms. For the Americans these include a number of fieldcamo personalizations to help blend in with the terrain. Take a look at them below, Khaki is the default colour and the alternatives are Green, Brown & black fieldcamo.
The Germans has a longer tradition for uniform variations and below are the available German variations with the GrauGrün being the default, and the following variations available: Graugrün (default), Grey Splinter, Green Splinter, Brown Splinter & Tan ‘A’.
JUMP! JUMP! JUMP!
In the action game we have updated the transport planes so they are now computer controlled. On the spawn menu you can choose to spawn at any spawn point on the map and the plane will then adjust its course to take you as close to that capture point as possible so you can jump directly into the battle.
