A & A Classic Paratroopers

Paratroopers: Move 1 (ground) Attack 1 Defence 1 Cost 3 (same as Inf).
Paratroopers can be loaded 1:1 into Bombers to make an Assault on any land space in Bomber range.
My version of Paratrooper unit was independently invented in the mid 80s (1986?) before I ever saw any other A & A paratrooper idea.
I used a metal miniature distinguishable from an Inf unit and which had a light blue painted base to further identify it.
I would say attacks 1, defends at 2. range of bomber is 6, but the paratroopers may only be dropped one plus the front.
We also used to play with paratroopers in A&A Classic. It’s mentioned in this very old article: https://www.axisandallies.org/p/mjp_house_rules/
I do like having the defense as 1 to make up for the special ability.
I like. I also like having a lot of pieces on the board. I’d love to do a game with double the amount of pieces for everyone.
