I hope that for the imperials, they have ships that can be stored inside their capital ships (imperial landing craft, AT-AT barges) and that the rebels have to have their own seperate landing craft (medium transports like at Hoth) What do you guys think?

woud be nice to have a fleet up in the air making troops and you can send them to the planet and you will see ships drop units on the ground and fly away again to get more units :D

They seem in, if judging by the screenshots are any proof. :)

But wether you need to build them, is a whole nother issue. They may be "standard equipment" that follows the star destroyer or whatever other ship that can carry such large landing crafts as say AT-AT barges.

The Trade Federation had such landing craft (which carried the droids) stored in their capital ships...who knows! It would be great to see dropships like the Republic had also

For the Imperials they have the AT-AT barges and the troop shuttles in for sure.

For the rebels I'm not sure what transports they are using.

I love my Sentinel Imperial Landing crafts.

Form the screens, it looks like there is going to be some sort of landingv ehicle system.

The infiltrators were cool. Stealing imperial equiptment always seemed far more like the rebel alliance to me, rather than having a load of tanks...

Argh! No-o-h!;) Force Commander... horrific, unpolished game. Worst GUI ever... [Shivers] Thank you, you brought it all back!:eek:

Nope. Infiltrators were just annoying in that game (all infantry was). Build powerful artillery, get rushed by 10 troops on speeder bikes, lose powerful artillery, lose half your base...

As long as they get the crafts right, I don't care. The RS dev team seems to believe that Landing Crafts are container lifters and not troop transports:D .

I hope deployment will be like in Ground Control, where you start with one or more potential drop zones and then choose which drop ships go where. Drop ships leave, attack begins.

Wa-a-ah! Want mama! Wa-a-a-a-h!:p
