How about Civilization?  All sentried units essentially randomly end up in 
each transport.  :)  Then you sentry a couple of units, move out the 
transport, sentry a couple more, move out another transport.  Ummm, except I 
don't think we have the "sentry" function in CF.

I think hovercraft should be able to move over light forest and possibly 
medium forest (they can go above the trees), but not over heavy forest (older 
trees, too tall to go above, too thick to maneuver inside the forest).  How 
many forest distinctions are there right now?  (I'm lazy, I don't pay 
attention to terrain, that's why you kept getting aa tanks across the 
mountains and around my line way back when)
