Thats cool, though I don't agree with the people who start with them off, because sure if you lose the ability to strike first, they could all get shot down and half the troops destroyed. But, if you do go first you have to embark your troops, fly them out there... and then you can't disembark them. so they will still get shot down... but I guess they are closer.. for the survivors. But since DE are almost always the attacker, they usually go first, so leave them in raider, fly out, drop the load, and then use the raiders as tank killers and targets. But that is just my theory, and with the horrible save, most of the troops will die getting shot down, and I don't know if I want to do that, even if they will be closer for the survivors. I don't know, what does everyone else do with their raiders?
