I thought about bringing up the discussion about recon planes back.

Here's a link to one of the old discussions:

Read the thread above first, good ideas there...
The Arado Ar 196 among with some other planes that we already have as AI would cheer up the online games. When I started to fly in the "full real" servers, I noticed that sometimes you just fly, fly, fly and when you finally spot somebody you spend 10 mins on his tail only to notice that he's on your side. This can be easilly avoided by communicating with fellow players. Flying in formations, telling where the enemy is and escorting really boost up your combat success, plus it's fun. So, bringin the recon planes in would allow players to spot ships, ground forces and planes, and then tell their location to the rest of the team. And if we get something like the Ar196 we would have to worry about being a flying target. All of the recon planes carry a tailgunner, but some of them can carry something extra, the Arado has cannons in the wings http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, the russian biplane U-2VS can carry bombs if I remember right and the FW189 can carry 4*50kg bombs too, so most of the planes would be multifunctional. Also the scoring system should be changed so flying recon missions would also give you a good score. But again read the post linked above, it has great ideas and is much easier to read than this... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
