Is used on units with JumpJet set and specifies that they will never land by default. This also has the additional effect of using the Balloon Hover Alternate Characteristics on the unit.

Units with this flag set to "yes" will also attempt to hover above their target (if the target is on the ground) when attacking, instead of attacking the target from the distance defined by the Range flag on the weapon. If the unit is able to attack air targets and is told to do so, it will attempt to enter the same cell as the target. All the while it is approaching its target, it will still fire even if it has not yet entered the same cell, provided the target is within range.

Editor's Note:

In theory, mis-casing JumpJetAccel can be used as a 'fix' for the problem with BallonHover-ers always willing to occupy the same cell as the target.

The unit will attempt to land, but never do so, but hovers in the air a short distance away from the ground.

Funnily enough: If Vertical=yes for the unit's projectile, then the unit WILL attempt to hover over its target, regardless of Template:Range. If Vertical=no, then opposite applies.
