Dear WG,

please add helicopters to the game.

 

Some BB could have a chopper platform on board, to aid air defense as consumable against CV attacks.

Ships also could have a crew cabin for onboard collectibles of the captain

Wrong game ? :Smile_facepalm:

 

WT tank players weren't exactly thrilled to see them either. Why would they be welcome in this game ? I would not mind but i don't see the early or modern ones posing any threat to ships with multiple .50 mg and heavier AA.

 

Besides that, naval helicopters to my knowledge are purely anti-submarine or sea rescue.....at most boarding marines. We don't have these roles in game. They are not meant to attack ships, even a small patrol/torpedo boat would probably be powerfull enough to gun an unarmoured  naval helicopter down. A Destroyer would easily do that. Naval helicopters  are usually not armoured attack helicopters the army used/uses.

There is one place where Helis would actually "fit" into the game - Republique has a Helipad on her stern, so they could give her Helis as a "Spotter Plane" consumable equivalent. Not that Repu needs such a buff currently, but...

I think historically the Grosser Kürfurst always kept a squadron of attackhelicopter Eurocopter Tigers in her hangars. Why not give her those?

All RN ships bigger than the Black Swan need to have a fully tricked out Wildcat

 I believe Köln, the sister ship of our familiar Königsberg, at one stage had an experimental helicopter landing platform  for the Flettner Fl 282 Kolibri. Could be a fun, unique premium ship, just put that contraption there and use it as a spotter plane.

(This picture is not the Köln I think, can't find one with the helicopter platform)

Guys, if you have anything serious to add there's either the CV discussion or the suggestions thread.
