SHAME fixed-wing aircraft cancelled
Now it seems that devs renounces to add aircraft and jet when he was announced in their presentation page, they even change their presentation by adding "possibly" fixed-wing aircraft !!!
You did a great job with this game that's why i bought it BUT don't take us for idiot

Fixed wing was never for sure, and the kickstarter never even made it to the stretch goal for fixed wing aircraft. Can you present any proof that they guaranteed that you would get fixed wing aircraft?

There will be aircraft. Just wait.

Maps wont ever be big enough for fixed wings to be liable strategy, hell, I even doubt the supply system will work.

I had read that page before but missed this line:

Below is a chart of air vehicle types you will encounter in Squad.

That is an absolute statement, you are correct! Sorry for my misunderstanding, but everything I have read on their forums has indicated that Helicopters were 100% sure to go in, and aeroplanes were a kind of "nice to have but not 100%" kind of deal.

You're right, so if they end up never putting in jets, they will have reneged on the kickstarter "promise".

Lets not stress them out yet.. let them add the Vehicles, Weapons and loadouts/uniforms. First, i paid 37Euro to Back the developer/Game..at least let it have the basic stuff first. If they refine the gameplay and add the Base/Suppy sytem and vehicles, im fine to pay under 5$ DLC for planes.. OH AND FIX THE MULTIPLAYER LOBBY! we need to be able to Favorite a Server and Search more efficently for one..

Hi JonBax,

pay $ 5 for a dlc planes, are you serious guy. xDDDD

I already paid for it ;


Spetsnaz thank you to remember their promises. ; )

Early access the scam in the world of video games, I have enough of all those developers who do not keep their promises.

I hope they will not disappoint us for this SQUAD. ; )

FYI the steam store page still says there will be jets, so don't worry tooooooooooo much yet :)


How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“In the full version, we are aiming for the support of 100 player servers with 50 players on each side. In addition what we have planned are a full compliment of vehicles for each faction, which goes from the small (motorbikes), all the way to close support jet aircraft and helicopters. Lastly we intend to fully flesh out the Base Building system by including more deployables, refining the construction and supply systems and also creating an upgrade system for bases.”

They've pretty conclusively stated that jets aren't making it to the game now.

Reason is that the maps are way too small. At minimum stall speed a jet crosses the largest map in ~1 minute. In games like BF the stall speed is ridiculously low so you can get some shots off without dropping out of the sky and the weapons are nerfed to account for the amount of shots you can fire in one single pass. It just wouldn't work in Squad. I'm slightly disappointed but I accept this fact.

Do they not have any foresight ? I mean didnt they know how big they were going to make the maps before they made those promises? So they either didnt know the layout of their game or they did and now realize they made a promise they technically cant do.
TheBlindOldman Jan 20, 2016 @ 5:22am 
I would be okay if they just incorporated the heli, arty,and jets as ai to be called in to hit a specific grid, and the heli's instead of a spawn you have to hitch a ride to a LZ placed down by a squad leader.. maybe make it possible at random which squad gets it..

You're welcome to join the discussion on their official forums

Here's an older and heated Steam discussion

I really don't understand why people want so much to have vehicles. The game is fine as it is. Adding vehicles will make the game more arcade than anything else me thinks....

Which is exactly what half these people want. A bf3 aircraft and can dominate air and ground, without dying.
