I've been playing Empire for many, many years and one of the things that fascinated me as new unit types was the idea of rapid expansion so I tried helicopters, patrol boats and air transports to try and get troops on new islands/continents more quickly.

One thing that bugged me was the speed of Air Transports. How can fighters move 6, bombers 4, transports 2 and air transports also 2? Surely an airplane is faster than a ship? So I went in and changed the rules to make air transports move 3 per turn and I think it makes for a better game. Just curious if anyone else has done this? Is this something that could/would get changed in the "official" rules?

Seems reasonable, will update mine to test it.
