Drop ships containing soldiers RTB after shooting down UFOs
« on: January 22, 2015, 08:46:34 am »
Currently drop ships containing soldiers will return to base after shooting down a UFO instead of going on to land near it for a recovery mission. They have to be manually retargeted on the crashed UFO.  Instead of this, if they contain armed soldiers they should by default fly on to the crashed UFO after shooting it down and land for a recovery mission.

I can decide which dropship to use and how to assemble the team (type of soldiers, equipment) only once I know what mission it is.

The point of having a weapon hardpoint on a dropship is so that it can shoot down a UFO and then land to mop up. Otherwise might as well not have a weapon on it and be like the skyranger in XCOM.
