simwiz - its still a majority.
nathan - think about this. Would you have said that the snowspeeder should be a rebel unique unit if it was the rebel fighter?
A new idea: having a discussion with another member on another thread, a member came u with a good idea. Given the Republic the gunship as a second UU, but change their transport to the gunship transport that drops off an AT-TE in ep2, and make it so it can only carry 2 or 3 units, instead of the normal 5. This would make the gunship balanced by giving them a powerful ground attack with troop transport ability, but decrease their mech/heavy transport ability. This would also enhance the republics area of speciality, troopers.
