Spoiler alert: It would
I've only ever died 3 ways in this game: Being shot by tanks / artillery trucks, trying to spawn on a point and being dropped in front of an enemy, and by planes. Now I understand the first 2 ways I die. Tanks are an important part of this game as they can support or lead attacks, can help teammates, and can be used as cover or distraction by friendly infantry. Obviously the spawn issue is a problem, but if it had an easy fix it would be gone by now.
But planes, planes I don't understand. Full disclosure, I've never once flown a plane (or driven a tank for that matter) in this game and I play entirely as infantry. But I don't see what planes add to this game. Sure a good pilot might help his team, but planes work in a way where they're basically unavoidable. No matter what you do, you're gonna get be in a heated fight when randomly out of nowhere some guy in a plane drops 200 grenades on ur head or blows u up with his cannons. They just seem like a really obnoxious gimmicky mechanic. Moreover, I never feel thankful for pilots on my team. Like I've never been fighting somebody and been saved by a plane. My only memory of them in this game is gimmicky deaths that I can't avoid.
So in conclusion planes are only ever flown by dumb pubs and should be removed
