You've decided that they're competitive, so all their tabs are the bee's knees and their only lack is that there's no fancy stuff and that hawks should be a bit cheaper. No, they actually have a lot of weaknesses that you're overlooking. But they're there, they (for the most part) don't prevent the deck from being competitive, and you'll only remember them when you no longer like BD. RD is the opposite - everything is a weakness, including the line infantry (equipped with the best IFV in the game currently) and the bomber (second-best in the game).
It is black-and-white face to face to the post I quoted calling for their buffs on account of not receiving attention in this thread.
To which I proceed to mention all the things that BD does have which RD lacks. Which even you admit, in RD everything is a weakness.
BD is an average coalition throughout, not excelling in anything but having no weakness other than what I already mentioned.
I also said their units are competitively priced, I haven't claimed even once that they have a competitive deck. A competitive deck doesn't have a single disqualifying weakness. If it has a disqualifying weakness, it's disqualified from being competitive (duh). BD isn't competitive because it has such a weakness. But all of their core units are priced competitively.
RD has a bomber which is second-best in the game? Which one is that?
I know of only 1 bomber which is even worth mentioning in RD and at 1 per card it's not even in top 5 bombers in the game.

Your only option is haebyung 90, and because they're inefficient you'll only see them in numbers (or at all) after it's clear that the enemy is using tanks aggressively. Unlike, say, LSTR or legion 90, which are great units on their own and guaranteed to be around.
I have to disagree 100%
Haebung 90' - 15 Men with PzF 3 70% Acc 24 AP => 30 + 5/10 (transport) => 35/40 pts
LSTR cost 50 pts (25-35% more) and they can't deal with infantry on their own, they are support infantry, means you can't send them alone because if they meet 2 line squads or 1 shock squad they will die.
Never have I met a tank which Seal/Kutei couldn't handle and not having either Haebung 90' far away or any of my own tanks. So there goes your theorycraft.
