Would it not kill for consistency? The LAAT drop ship in SS Command uses just plain old regular troopers while the mysterious LAAT trap uses heavy soldiers! No clear documentation by SWC and NADA on the fan/user supported http://swcommander.info/~swc/wiki/index ... =Main_Page about traps and about the fact that the LAAT trap is the only trap that the jet/jump troopers will trigger.

When the LAAT/IDT starship and trap were released alongside HQ9, they both just deployed the soldiers. It wasn't until some time later the traps got a buff by turning into heavies. I'm not sure why they didn't buff the ship at the same time. This is speculation on my part, but I think the original idea of the LAAT ship was just to be able to trigger buried SCs, which is why the troopers are kind of useless because it doesn't really matter what they are.

Interesting question. I don’t have a strong opinion on WHAT they should drops, but I really wish the troops were generalists and actually restored buildings behind enemy line instead of running headfirst into burst turrents. But back to the question at hand, I think rancor’s would be unrealistic but that would be awesome. I’d like it if they dropped heavy vehicles, or heavy troopers, something that can dole out damage but take a punch too.

The dropships are pretty good in wars with Dando. You can drop them to trigger a sonic, and they recover almost immediately. They also act as a solid meat shield. When you don't have Tat or Tako on your side, getting a few bonus troops on the field can help


Yeah, and as I recall, idt traps used to deploy storms, and at level 9 it was heavies (or maybe by the time I got mine to level 9, all levels were heavies).


I would say that upgrading the idt traps isn't as big of a priority as you think. The #1 unwanted effect is that they become expensive as hell to recharge at high levels (it adds up). At levels 1-7, the ship deploys level 7 heavies. The number increases as the trap level increases (3 at level 1). The repair cost also goes up. IMO, the real value of an idt is just to get the attacker to blow a starship on it. They do practically nothing to a decent attacker. Only weak attackers have issues with them, and you'll probably beat them anyway.

With the new Hauler unit for both sides, the original question I posed on this thread seems to have been rendered a bit useless, eh?

With the options to now send in regular soldiers, AAT, TX or Juggernaut (and the empire equivalents of course) the choices for dropship-troops has now been expanded upon.

So... succes? In a way :)

Doesn't mean I'd say no to a rancor drop ship lol, and I'd still look forward to any other thoughts on this what-if thought experiment.

Have an awesome day!
