    @Hayhayjam664, sure, but the Waco CG-4 did not airdrop anything by parachute--you need to lift the nose to unload the cargo! The whole CONOPs for the combat gliders was that you did not drop by parachute, instead landing in remote areas, but keeping all the troops in the back (and the pilots, who became infantry upon landing) in one unit instead of spread all over the countryside. So it wouldn't be in keeping with the real thing, though, I will admit, it is always cool to airdrop things out of airplanes in SP.

    If you added parachutes you could’ve dropped the pjeep from the sky
