Hi guys, Ok, we all know the Paras are one mean bunch of badasses. They are nearly as hardcore as The Marines. But isn't it time we moved with the times regarding parachute deployed troops? When looking at how to improve airborne combat we need to look at it's weaknesses. First the fact that when you land you are all split up. Second is that it's risky. There is a risk of atleast 1 man's parachute failing to open. Third it costs a lot to train and provide the parachutes. Right, so how about rather than deploying all the troops with a parachute each, why not give all the troops a parachute between them? "How can you do that?", I hear you ask. Well it's simple. Put a very large box into the back of the aricraft (the box must be wooden and sturdy). All the men in the squad stand inside the box together armed with all their kit and weapons etc etc (but no parachutes). Next you need to attach an extremely large parachute to the wooden box that the troops are in. Then you can kick the box full of troops out of the plane using just one parachute to guide them to the ground safely and deploy them all at the same time in the same place. This cuts down on parachutes as you wil only be using one big one. It also ensures that all the troops land in exactly the same place at exactly the same time, because they are all in the same box. You can also save money in issueing parachutes and training as all that is required of the troops is that they stand in the box and wait. Opinions?
