Re: The A-7E Corsair

Personally, I'd increase the A-6A to a dozen 500lb/227kg bombs, with the A-6F getting 6-8 500kg/1000lb bombs. Then give the the A-7 6x 750lb/341kg bombs on triple racks and maybe a pair of AIM-9s. The A-6 and A-7 should be heavy and medium bombers for Marine decks. Personal thoughts: A-6A: 12x 500lb...

Alternate 2000: OICW armed NATO infantry. o: They'd suck. Weaponry: A CAR-15-like carbine with worse ACC (9" barrel) A low-ROF GL with 0 AP and 1 HE OICW was a bad idea and always will be. If you want, I can post my math on the resulting loss of ammo compared to an M16/M203 combo. OICW is such...

Re: Littoral Naval Warfare: Some Questions

Killer - I agree that the tomahawk doesn't make sense. The USN will be quite schizophrenic in Red Dragon, supremely powerful destroyers and frigates, but very little lighter than that and quite weak shore bombardment abilities. 40 v 40 500km square maps? Count me in. The spam will be GLORIOUS. 160 ...

I want GBs to have the AT4 And yes, SEALs should get MH-6 too. I'll edit my post.

Re: Navy Seals?

IDK, but on the topic of US SF units, can we get Rangers as shock troops and get LRRPs as basic US recon? Maybe give the Rangers unit icon one of those camouflages(ERDL?), while LRRPs get Tiger Stripe? LRRP was Vietnam only and disbanded after we left. Personally, I'd give the US 4 special forces t...

Re: American Unit ideas for W:RD

Why not use Walleyes? It's a Cat C era 500kg smart bomb that [F&F] with TV guidance. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGM-62_Walleye The only real problem is that a Cat C A-6 Intruder could be carrying four 1000kg [F&F] Walleye II bombs and that would be ridiculous. My post on A-6 Intruder loado...

IRL, Vasilek is autoloaded from a four round mag. Or you can drop-load it like every other mortar.

Re: The least impressive bomber in the game, the A-6 Intrude

Pick your poison for E and F. Yes, I know F isn't in game A-6A (Cat C): should have 12x 500lb/227kg bombs (Three each on stations 1,5. Six on station 3) Possibly 2x AGM-45 Shrike on stations 2,4 A-6E (Cat C): Either: Loadout 1: 26x 500lb bombs (max load) (Six on stations 1,3,5. Four on stations 2,4....
