And it is probably better that way. If tanks were suddenly "viable" counters to helicopters.... that would be a bit too much.
I'm not so certain. I was hoping for Strela 3 instead of the base one, because It is basically an invisible bottomtier manpad-infantry glued onto the tank, the dps is very low because of combination of 30% acc, 6 seconds between missiles and at the time i assumed only 2 missiles, with those restrictions they won't really counter anything useful.
Right now they are mostly a meme and a tool for psychological warfare, occasionally you do get some brag worthy like Rafale kill or something like that. But for that the original strelabus was already more than enough, simply because of high rof, even if they would remain at 30%. However i do get your concern, especially after you learned about the Type-98
btw. since when you become pink? What unspeakable things have you done for that privilege?
