    When this game was created why were we not given the ability to put troops in the battlefield ? What is the point of close air support when all you have is armor to attack ?

    Legal reasons - it would have had a higher age certificate so lost part of the audience.

    Lol, you can drop 5000kg bombs on civilian cities, but some legitimate combatants on the front would givbe a higher age rating. People who write stuff like ratings are so utterly clueless.

    Hmm...
    Firing a 20mm shell and blasting a pilot to piesces, Turning a aircraft into a flaming ball and burning the pilot to the death, shooting a bailed out pilots, turning a tank crew into a pile of meat is allowed and strafing a troop isn't?
    A typical hypocritism.

    But you don't see it...its barely even implied. Except if you chute shoot. Which is possible.

    Still...the ratings game is important. They want maximum exposure for a very small market game so you have to make a few comprimises.

    I agree the troops would be nice, but compramise had to be made.
    And shooting the plane is just that, it's a plane. Sure it's got a pilot but it's a plane.
    Houses are "empty"
    and the tanks went to fight on their own accord

    Bullcrap! It all comes down to framerates and modeling. Its a flight sim. Air strikes are made against buildings, vehicles and vessels......NOT People. They do have people running from vehicles which is enough in my opinion.

    Actually the real problem this creates is in the Pacific. The Japanese rarely used tanks, and really did not have many good trucks either. So the only way for ground attack to work in the Pacific is to have non-historical formations of Japanese armor, and truck convoys/concentrations that are all out of proportion historically.
