Maximeba -> Para drops (10/18/2012 11:10:20 PM)

Can someone please explain the exact procedure on how to drop a para unit? I keep trying but all I get can't drop supplies, not afriendly hex.

If you get to supplies, you are almost there. You should Shift-Left click to drop troops (Shift-Right is for supplies).

The procedure is detailed in the patch notes.

The procedure is detailed in the patch notes.

I still can't figure out how to make a para drop. Where would I find the patch notes?

From notes for 1.06.11 patch:

4. Rule Change (Section 16.3.6) Airborne units may only be dropped within 8 hexes of a supplied friendly unit. See the next item for the interface change that has been made for airborne drops.
5. Interface Change (Section To airdrop a unit, now you must go to air transport mode and then left click on the hex containing the airbase and airborne unit. Make sure the airborne unit(s) you wish to drop are selected in the unit bar. Next, shift-left click on a hex near the airfield. This will cause the pick air units mission window to be displayed. Close this window and you will now see the hexes where you may conduct an airdrop lit up, while those that are not possible will be displayed in. Shift-left click on the hex you wish to drop the airborne unit and the pick air units mission window will appear. Due to some issues with the interface, the only way to indicate the valid hexes to airdrop in is to click on a valid hex. If you click on an invalid hex it will not bring up the air window nor will it indicate the valid hexes. This is why we suggest you click somewhere near the airbase. Whenever the air window appears, you can execute the air drop. It is important that you select the airborne unit after you have entered air transport mode (previously the airborne unit was supposed to be selected while still in movement mode).

It's called 'whatsnew.pdf', should be in your WitE directory.

Tip - Para drops are considered to be an air transport mission and the rule change in 1.06.22 applies. See manual section 5.3.9.

v1.06.22 - November 29, 2012
Air transport missions may only be flown by air groups that are located on airbases within 5 MPs of a supply source (rail net).

The airborne units must start at an airbase within 5 MP's of the rail net.
