Sabotage / Paratrooper variants

Group Description

Any game based on the fundamental "turret vs. airborne infantry" game premise popularly employed by Paratrooper (and the earlier Sabotage). Paratrooper games usually identify the player acting as a fixed gun turret (machine gun or similar devices) shooting at wide but limited vertical angle against incoming enemies: Paratroopers, Helicopters, Bomber planes, etc.

The most unique feature is the paratrooper enemy (which parachutes in numerous numbers), which if successfully landing behind friendly lines in specific numbers, will create a human ladder and blow up the player's gun turret.
