  1. I recently transitioned from V18 to V19.7... and I was kind of shocked to see Greece re-labeled as part of the ME, instead of being part of Europe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe Geographically, Greece is separated from the ME by the Aegean. Culturally, it's Orthodox Christian, like Bulgaria, Romania, and the former Yugoslavia. While Turkey is currently seeking membership in the EU (and its European portion could be considered part of Europe, since Xenonauts doesn't separate areas by national boundaries), I'm not sure by what reasoning Greece could be considered Middle-Eastern, given that it has 0 involvement in the issues that sweep the current ME and isn't part of the same landmasses. In the time-frame we're talking about (the Cold War) Greece (as well as Turkey) was aligned with the US and not the Islamic states that routinely invaded Israel. At any rate, why would Greek citizens care if Egyptians were being abducted? So, ah, given that this change was recent, can I at least ask what prompted it?

    Cooldown for big guns

    Tanks guns generally take a bit more than 6 seconds to fire. It takes more than 6 seconds to reload a Bradley's TOW launcher. Crap, I have trouble sometimes reloading an M-1 Grande in 6 seconds. Darned M-1 thumb...

    Greece is part of EUROPE, not the Middle-East

    Couldn't parts of N Africa/Afghanistan be rolled into the ME? Besides, a base in the Western hemisphere covers, what, 3 funding blocs at most, instead of the 4-5 I can hit in the East?
  4. One thing I've never seen in an X-Com style game is fighter pilots getting better at shooting down enemy aircraft. A leveling/management system for fighter pilots would be nice.
  5. I'm not sure about reducing firepower, but adding extra armor at the expense of speed is something done in real life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Applique_armor#Appliqu.C3.A9
