There is a message, but this bug is due to that message being turned
off by default.
When a paratrooper is killed at its destination, a message of type
Unit: Attack failed is sent, which is turned off by default. However,
paradropping into the ocean (due to unnoticed terraforming), sends a
message of type Unit: Defender destroyed, which is shown by default.
Notice that these categories only affect the filtering and not the
actual content of the messages.
One easy solution is to use Unit: Defender destroyed (called
E_UNIT_LOST in the code) for the KIA case as well. Otherwise we could
create a new paratrooper category, or turn on more messages by
