Should ground units be able to enter squares occupied by other civ's air units?

    I would like to get the opinions of my esteemed colleagues on this matter. It makes no sense to me that ground units are not able to move into squares occupied by other civs air units (be they friend or foe). What do you Fanatics think?

    Why not? Have you ever seen in any "modern" war such a limitation? Imagine USAF aircrafts forbiding an Abrams tanks division to be under their flight path, or they'll bomb their own friend. That would be a great idea
    To be more serious, I think there's no reason to exclude that. And I'll even say that some enemy units SHOULD also be able to enter a square occupied by an aircraft. Why? Simple: riflemen are not supposed to have only their M16 rifle. They can use missile battery, for instance. But perhaps it would make the rules too difficult to understand

    You should be able to take a city with ground troops, if only aircraft are in the city, on the ground.
    Only makes sense.

    Well, one could argue that the Bomber's that remain airborne during an opposing Civ's turn are performing in a ground interdiction role.

    (It would be nice to see expanded rules for air combat in Civ3 so that interdiction is one role, and bombing is another).
