Aircraft carriers?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I don't know if this has ever been brought up, or even if its too late too even think about, but has anyone considered that these could be an interesting addition to the game? You could garrison them with a small number of troops and aircraft and use them to patrol areas that are out of your radar/base range, and launch ground/air operations from them. They could be attacked by aliens under certain conditions too.

It would add some flexibility to the game without being a necessity. They would take a long time to produce and a lot of funds too, you could even add submersible vehicles if you wanted to introduce a nuatical alien threat like TFTD for some additional variety. Maybe troops that get transferred to them become marines and get some kind of perk/stat/rank alteration?

I think part of the X-COM/Xenonauts fantasy is feeling like you are in command of a proper military organisation, which means thinking about air, land and sea in some capacity. The sea is often overlooked unless the setting is specifically the ocean, but it could be useful in any earth setting.

 

Just an idea!

The will come more action to the Geoscape. The Devs mentioned it already like help from founding Military to shoot down UFO‘s, Special Operations etc. It should come in the next BETA (V.13).

The Aircraft Carrier’s are a very good Idea for an upcoming DLC or for an later State in Early Access.

Aircraft carriers would be interesting. Maybe not that you made them but perhaps you could "borrow" use of them from a world power and keep a few troops and some aircraft on a carrier for extended range capability.
