I'm not sure I like this, given that the jump pack troops could be
flying very close to the earth, making themselves nearly impossible to
target. At the very least, I would say that if you are firing at troops
using this rule (i.e. only exposing themselves for part of the movement
phase) that you would not be able to target normally, you should suffer
the following penalties:

1. No overwatch rerolls.
2. Targets count as in cover.

Ditto here.

I think flak units are only allowed to fire in the movement phase
because this is when enemy flyers move/attack. IMHO it shouldn't be
extended beyond that to some kind of special ground power.
