I have seen a post recently concerning the fact that you cannot use paratroopers unless their readiness reaches 100%, but I cannot find the post and any responses.

In my Axis game I have had a para unit in 9 supply sitting next to an HQ unit for at least five months. I cannot drop it to help with my Belelux/France invasion as it is still at 96% as of late May 1940.

Alvaro - can you please fix this in the next patch, perhaps reducing the para readiness requirement to, say 90% ?

Thanks

You can by spending a supply truck on the para unit, improve its readiness by 6% and then be able to use it as a para this turn.

The 100% is too much and easily abused by bombing the unit every turn. Should be lowered to 100%. IRL no unit ever is 100 ready.

I just dropped a parachute unit with 97% readiness. Without a very high readiness requirement we'll get paradrop hopscotch going on.

The fog of war should hide the para drop unit in the rear.
