Yeah for the paratrooper elite, that would only make sense. They'd need a super special skill as an elite, I'm sure the creative minds here can think of something to make an elite paratrooper work.

Oooh how about "Mad Jack" Churchill for one of the elite units? lol maybe he could be a "secret" elite unlockable unit. He went into combat with a Scottish Claymore sword and a longbow. He has the first and only known confirmed kill with a bow. He was also known to play the bagpipes into battle, so every time you get a kill with him or when he first spawns in, bagpipes should play for everyone to hear. We can make him have increased speed and health (like the BF1 trench raider), but he'd be limited to just the longbow and sword, and some other select items.
This upcoming Boys AT rifle may have been a good weapon for the elite unit... but it looks like it'll be a gadget for the assault class (?).
A potential elite AT unit will need a better AT rifle then...
