    Title says it all. Grab the WB scenario, play as the Maya, use gunships to clean land unit garrissons, drop a paratrooper near the city and try to take it ASAP. You will only be able to do it when the city is completely empty, with no air or sea units ( should had tested missiles too, but I guess it would be the same )

    You will also be able to see battle warnings between Gunships and destroyers or jet fighters as a bonus if you try to attacks the cities with gunships after the land units are killed ;)

    I guess this is not exactly what Firaxis had in mind with the paratrooper ..... and already borked my plans in a modern war :(

    P.S Used a WB scenario because i wanted to test it both in 3.17 and 3.19. Same results.

    P.S 2 Further testing showed that missiles and even work boats or workers will stop the paratrooper. On the other hand invisible units ( like undetected subs ... detected subs work as any other unit ) do not , allowing the city to be captured, as when the city is really empty
