Bribing air units?

Currently the spies are able to bribe air units. I removed that possibility from nuclear missile but I was wondering if this should also apply to other air units? It's nice to bribe an AWACS plane or a fighter but kind of unrealistic. From gameplay point of view maybe reasonable. What do you think?

I have a feeling that I already know how this should be done but as usual, I also have a feeling that I may be wrong about this smile

Ok, the air units ca no longer be bribed. With the exception of helicopters. They can be bribed if the player's gov allows it.

No, seriously, how do you bribe a helicopter in flight? Toss money into the air? Or jump and climb inside like Tom Cruise?

Besides, heli pilots are supposed to be among more elite and better paid army personnel. Bribing them is highly unrealistic.

The idea is that helicopters need to land while not moving. After all they can stay out of cities for very long periods of time.

It was kind of really unrealistic when you were able to bribe AWACS plane or nuclear missile while attacking with it smile

LOL on Tom Cruise.
Sounds fine to me.
Although unrealistic, I think it's more fun to allow bribing air units, as it requires the piloting nation to double up their air to prevent bribing. This makes the air blockade tactic twice as expensive to employ.

I guess bribing air units will be left on LT39 while it will be (or is) removed from LT40.

Thought the same about helicopters but I tend to unrealistic side. Prefer if it is removed. Besides I don't mind if modern era units get much stronger than the gradual increase in strength you have before. Its just how history was and hence more realistic.
