For 10 pts more, the BMP-3 is not unbalanced.


You forget that it is SALH, so vet bmp3 will not only get the first shot against atgm vehicles, it hits first as well. And honestly, 80% CTH including being vet is more than good enough when you have the all-important range advantage. So in closer ranges M2A1 will have the upper hand, but in the open fields of Galve, accept nothing but the best :D

I'll take a 25 point mortar and a vanilla Bradley over a BMP3.

This uber Bradley is made for killing of the tank, not of the vehicle of type general BMP3.

Two cards of one Bradley, and one card of another is sufficient when combined with mortar or OP MLRS.

On the subject of the autocannon, I think they are terribly unbalanced. The RH 202 could use a buff, as well as the one the BMP-2 uses. I'd be for an acc buff on tank autocannons, the recon M114, and low end SPAAG.

Also, the Swedish Buffors should get 4 AP. It's a prototype, after all.

It's an apples-to-oranges comparison. The Bradley excels at killing tanks, the BMP-3 excels at killing ATGM vehicles.

In case this was genuine, and not sarcasm

Bushmaster - NATO - M791 & M919

2A72 - PACT - 3UBR6 & 3UBR8

Again, the M919 and 3UBR8 do not exist in the ALB universe.


M919 is ammo for prototype Bradley


There is no prototype Bradley, what are you talking about.

Check again the M2A1 and M3A1. In W:ALB.

The current/last patch seems to have 2 AP for the Bushmaster on the LAV 25 but 3 on Bradley. I guess the marines don't the money for the good ammo, according to Eugen. Also the LAV is pretty overpriced at 30 vs 50 on the Bradley (which also gets ATGMs).

Indeed. Also the un-upgraded M2 Bradley is just 35 points, which makes the marines/LAV an even worse proposition.
