Boom Beach needs to make an upgrade where you call in air support or "Broken Arrow" using gun boat energy when your troops are in trouble! At first it would be cool to see old WW2 fighter planes or B52 bombers give machine gun support on spacific locations. Then as you level up in the armoury, you can drop bombs (stronger then average artillery) and eventually draw a line across the screen where you can strip bomb the enemy's base! Let me know what you guys think!
Aerial additions will not be added to Boom Beach's universe. (I would, too, hope for WW2 era aircraft, but the dev team seems to be going in the future more so than the past nowadays, so the B52 is out of the question on all sides of the issue.) Bombs already exist in-game as Artillery and Barrage; there will be no Gunboat Abilities added to the game that could substitute these in their basic function. Strip bombing would also be a nice addition, but its mechanics can get in the way of base panning when attacking, which will hinder an attacker's ability to protect his troops if they have been deployed.
The idea of aerial additions does not have to be strictly WW2 era. A futuristic twist on military aircraft would be interesting to see with the creative minds of the boom beach designers. As the world moves further with technology aircraft is a major part of modern and future warfare, which would fallow the dev teams path for the game. As for base planning this is just another component to think aboutand plan for. The idea should not be discarded simply for that reason. In the case of attacking troops safety, this function is controlled be the attacking user and the function is a risk (as in the real world) but can have great benefits. This function like any other in boom beach would have to be used statistically and be host to a learning curve.
That would be dumb considering the amount of destruction it would cause, it would overpower an attacker, I think it is something you can only use once a day and it costs 200 diamonds to buy one, and when you use it on any base ( except freindly challenges, hammerman bases, colonial gearheart bases, mega crab stages and operation power bases) but only get half of the rewards and no power stones, but only the usual chance of Intel
I would not like this since this might be OP and it would seem weird for old time planes and stuff in a game about boats and beaches, this game has no air things such as units or a defense so it would really throw the game off.
