Heavy AA in 1v1: to pair or not?

Postby somraksomrak » Sat 1 Jul 2017 18:31

Hi,
Question is obvious.
I have the feeling, paired AA missile platforms (KUBs, NEWAs, etc) score hits better than individually placed.
What's your thinking on this, guys?

Though i am also new player but in my opinion it is good idea rather than being individually placed.

Interesting to see what other respond with?
Depending on the AA unit, I might have them in a pair.
The reason I do it is to increase the chances of a kill,
instead of 1 unit hitting twice in a row,
you only need 2 hits from 4 shots if they were paired.
However if the enemy is relentless will artillery,
I might not stack as, he could be aiming at you as soon as they see the 1st missiles launch.
I saw 4x Buks get destroyed by a single ATCAMS strike.

I woul never pair my Heavy AA.

A heavy AA scores either 7 or 9 damage per hit and usually got a very limited missile load. Hitting an enemy aircraft with a maximum of 10 HP mean that you commit a significant overkill. In general I think it is better to put a weaker AA unit or SPAAG close to the front line and hope that it scores a little bit of damage, allowing the heavy AA to finish the job.
