You could only do little stuff since most of it might include COMSEC material aka classified stuff

Thanks for the heads-up. Hopefully this is a start for us to be able to walk in & out of aircraft.

Mine retracts automatically as soon i start in cockpit and makes no difference battery off i wish we could, somehow, decide when to retract the ladder (ex: turn Battery On, Close Canopy, radio comms, etc).

I think in real life a ground crew needs to store the ladder, so hopefully we'll eventually get a ground crew command for them to do this.

I think you'll find that it goes more like this. G.C. Waves bye-bye to aircraft, goes to crewroom, pours a hot cuppa, and A: Plays a game of Uckers, B: Plays a game or Risk C: Plays a game of Trivial Pursuit, D: Has a little nap, (choice depending on mission length). All that shooty stuff is for the army, or RAF Regiment if you are in blighty.

Lol...clearly you've never been on a field squadron. Harriers or rotary wing. Launch your aircraft from a hide, then go and sit in a shell scrape in the pissing rain with a GPMG, expecting some mong to start throwing thunderflashes around. Uckers are for the tea bar on camp.
