No you wouldn't, you'd have a reasonably good MiG-29 9.13S with 4x R-77 and 2x R-73 and you'd have a pair of pointless cluster bombers, the first a 9.12 with 4x RBK-500s and 2x R-60M, the second a 9.13 with 4x RBK-500 and 2x R-73.

Then Yugoslavia would have gotten all of its various 9.12Bs with their individual serial numbers and an additional pair of prototype MiG-29SMs, one as an ASF and one for strike.

The F-16 didn't use the Sparrow until the late 80s when the ADF variant emerged. The MiG-29 was designed to carry BVR missiles, which is one of the reasons why it entered service later than the F-16A.

Isn't that for the later series, T-64A mod. 1974?

1969 for aluminium, 1971 for HHS and 1974 for corundum, IIRC.

In terms of unique units, West-Germany should have carried over Jagdkommando in addition to receiving dedicated 2-man Milan ATGM teams.

Jagdkommando (and its '85 version):
  • 5-man shock infantry squad dedicated to tank hunting (Panzergrenadiers units were trained to use the Milans independently from Marder IFVs)
  • G3 armament as Panzergrenadiers get (with shock stats)
  • Milan and Milan 2 (for '85 version)
  • Same amount of missiles as the Marder IFVs carry
  • Available only in mechanized and armored specialization
  • NO stealth!
Courtesy to a discussion of the upcoming DLC for SD44. Sufficient to say, one of my
mates is very happy about the new Allied divisions. I totally don't get why... :roll:

You mean no extra stealth compared to normal 10men squads or no stealth at all? :P

No additional stealth compared to the bonus (almost) all ATGM teams get. Basically 5-man Panzergrens without an MG and a Milan for AT.

So basically a new "Deckungsgruppe" or instead them?

No, additional to them. A "Deckungsgruppe" with anti-infantry AT has a totally different role. They are meant to support attacking formations (Sturmgruppe) in house to house combat with suppressive fire from their rifles and launchers.

I dont think that a new unit would be introduced, but maybe a existing unit would be changed.
