The RC plane!

The RC (remote controlled) airplane will be a weapon launched by the player and then controlled independantly, in much the same way the super sheep was flown in worms.

However, unlike the sheep, the player will have a stock of 3 airstrike rockets that they can drop, one by one, from the RC plane by pushing the Space key. So you're able to fly around the map dropping missiles! Like a manual airstrike!

After you're out of ammo, you can crash your plane into an enemy for extra damage.

Any suggestions, feedback, etc on this idea?

In that case make a helicopter instead of fighter Wink Smiley It has also on very big advantage to the normal fighters (think you'll use one, not these with the vertical take-off) - it can fly not only left and right (on the screen I mean Smile ) but also straight up(down)wards, which makes it easier to control and will also make it look more realistic (speed and everything). To add more realism, you can make it to be affected by wind. If for example the wind blows from right to left and we want to fly left to right with our helicopter, it will fly slower.

Here is my Unofficial Manual for HW. Hope you like it. Wink Smiley Still working on it. Don't worry. Will get it finished...Sometime in the future. Big Grin

I suggested this ages ago when it was on the "What weapon should be next" thread, but you've backed it up with some very decent points.
