Give GM a dropship or any other viable LFS Vechicle

Recommended Posts

What your suggestion is: Give GM drop ship

Scriptfodder/workshop link: In LFS

Any additional information: GM are a flanking regiment, whilst we have a grapplehook, its not that fast for getting around in battles, meaning when we are flanking by the time we are in position, 501st and 212th have already dealt with them. GM genuinely needs a dropship for us to serve our intended purpose as a flanking regiment

The dropship is given to 501st so they can flank the enemy with their shotguns because they don’t have GH (excluding ARC) . The Dropship is used by the 501st to get to the point of close combat where 501st can effectively use there shotguns this because of its speed so they can move as fast as possible infront of the droids and GM doesn’t have close range weapons (except FT)so they would just use it to get ontop of a hill which they can use their GH for. So they don’t need it.
GM have GH to get to high ground where they can use RTC so they don’t need to use a dropship to flank the enemy and if you need transportation just request for LAAT to pick you up or ask your commander if he is online.

Whilst i'd love a dropship and think it would really help GM's flanking, you didn't ask hierarchy or anything before putting the suggestion foward.

GM Already have Enough Equipment

Not Every Regiment has LFS [ Example: CG, DU ] 

Your Flamethrower is already Good Enough to take out a Bunch of EC's and Piss em Off

And you have a Grapple Hook

A Vehicle isnt Needed, CE Can transport

-1 Maybe if you guys actually talked to people outside your regiment instead just GM, you could ask CE to help you flank or even 501st or RC. it is as Simple as that

Guarantee none of them would do that. 501st can only deploy so many dropships and it isn't their job to ferry us about and CE will likely be preoccupied. Also every regiment doesn't need their own special CE transport service, it would just be much easier for us to have our own one.

GM have no need for it, IF you gonna give anyone else a dropship you would give it to GC hierarchy as we can use it to scout and get to mountains a lot easier and get to deal with snipers easier. GM do not sit on mountains  they are frontline supportive / flanking regiment your meant to be in the frontline not in the sky or ontop of mountain proving covering fire.  You are extremely Op who it is with no recoil RTC and extremely powerful Flame thrower

  • GM does sometimes sit on mountains and provide supportive fire from above. We can do it if we feel as if we wouldn't be of any help on the frontline for whatever reason and aren't able to flank
  • Like Aleks said in another suggestion; there have been numerous times where GM is sent to flank a position, yknow our main job, but gets there too late because 501st, ARC and RC have already used their ships to get there faster and have cleared it out
  • GC have an OP weapon and two vehicles already and they need something like a dropship to rush them to locations quickly to support a push like GM would have to. Our battlestation is search and destroy and currently our ability to do that is limited as we are too slow with just our grapple hooks. Additionally i feel as if GC would be more inclined to rush snipers with the help of a dropship as opposed to acting as a counter-sniper but do correct me if i am wrong because i'm not 100% familiar with GC.

GM already have really good equipment

This was not discussed with hierarchy 

Dropship add-on is broken

You can just have CE fly you there or ask your CO to do it

Other regiments need more love and a vehicle (CT for example)

I understand this wasn't put forward with hierarchy's permission but they are already discussing the possibilities of getting a vehicle, as shown by Aleks' suggestion.

  • We wouldn't use the specific dropship addon, we'd probably find a new one if we were allowed to get a dropship of some description
  • Having CE set us up a personal LAAT service is dumb and i don't think anyone would do that, its far easier to do a regimental transport operated by hierarchy
  • I do agree other regiments need more love but CT getting a vehicle is not what i had in mind. CT, CG and DU are all very static regiments, either exclusively following the frontline or staying back and defending. CG does get a vehicle mind you but its not intended for combat so its not really comparable when the only thing GM will be using a dropship for would be for transport in combat. The regiments don't really need a dropship or a transport vehicle as it wouldn't benefit what their main job is. In contrast, GM is a very mobile regiment that relies on speed to do our job otherwise flanking windows close so we'd benefit from a dropship or some other fast vehicle.
  • The grapple hook is useful but isn't very fast
  • I'll admit GM does have very strong EQ and with the addition of a dropship it would just get more powerful which is a downside. However, i don't think it'll be too much of an improvement to really be OP. The vehicle wouldn't be tanky or heavily armed, it would just be a simple transport only operated by trusted members in GM.

Not every regiment will get a dropship. CE exists to transport the bulk of forces to the main point of conflict. I'm saying it would be beneficial for GM to have one becasue, more often than not, we split up from the main force anyway so having a personal dropship for this reason isn't too bad. Every other regiment, except say 501st, will still rely on CE for consistent transport and the addition of a GM dropship or other transport vehicle wouldn't render CE obsolete.

Archer has said the point of CE is transport regiments around, It their main purpose and im 100 percent sure CE would happly fly you to the places you need if you talked to them. Also you have your commander who can fly laats. But the thing is when hes online he never asks to use it so whats the point of having a drop ship if you dont even use your own LAAT

If we start giving regiments vehicles and more vehicles, CE is basically only gonna transport themselves, a -1 from me.
