Would you like to see electronic warfare planes in multiplayer?

For example, in a team deathmatch if a teammate is flying an EA-6b prowler or the upcoming EA-18G Growler, then all other teammates receive a expanded radar field, or the other team has it's radar or communications jammed when in proximity.

The jammming plane would still carry weapon systems, but not as many. Probably no cannons and reduced number of other optional weapons (air to air, air to ground)

EA-6B Prowler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EA-6_Prowler)

EA-18G Growler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EA-18_Growler)

Yep, this would make the game more "teamwork-friendly". Because in other ways, this would be just free for all...

If there is any missions like escorting a tanker or bombers, this would also be really great http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That sounds ike it could work. But what if it got kind of cheap. Personally, I rely on Radar a lot, so the idea of jamming has never thrilled me. I can live with it, but I personally would prefer and expanded radar.

I wouldn't mind those planes as NPC's flying around the map. Then you'd have to defend them, and also consider attacking the other teams Prowler, or Growler in order to take out those advantages.

I would also like to see SAM sites, and AA gun placements by the bases. This would make base attacking more difficult. Also if they include the F-117 in the game, and some night maps, this would be a valuable plane for attack and defend. I hope they don't just have fighters, I want to fly some bombers too. I want to fly the B-2, or B-1. B-2 would be awesome for it's stealth capabilities.

I think this will be a great idea and as i said in another post " things of this nature will bring HAWX into a game of its own" the goal is to make a fun game and also be different than Over G fighter and Ace Combat. these are some ways to do just that
