Re: Suggestion: 15-man squads +50% RoF on primary weapon

Infantry rifles rate of fire is already dependent of the number of men in the squad, base reload time is divided by the number of men. Thanks for pointing this out. While that is true, the base RoF is unchanged so the effect is much, much smaller than 50%. Poking around the Hidden Stats spreadsheet...

Suggestion: 15-man squads +50% RoF on primary weapon

A discussion in another thread about the generally poor cost efficiency of 15-man squads got me thinking: What if they received a 50% buff to RoF of their primary weapon? Their machine gun and RPG stats would be unchanged, but with 55% (9+5) more soldiers operating the primary weapon (battle rifle, ...

Re: F-15D Strike Eagle to 50% ECM

IDK, in practice, I've most certainly netted over 400pts with one in a single run just off the top of my head (2A5, M1A2, ASF). Well you can, but you could also take a pair of MiG-27Ks without dying - and the best option to deal with fighters is always another fighter. Two cards and well over 300 p...

Su-27M, though.

Re: F-15D Strike Eagle to 50% ECM

Last time I checked 15D drops dummy bombs and also has the model of D, not E. And didn't the Israelis use their 15Ds as bomb trucks? So dropping bombs isn't just meant for the E variant. Now Ra'am, that's a proper 15E! Wish they'd just copy the model of it and paint it for US colors and change the ...

Your compelling argument has convinced me.

Seriously though, ability to kill AFVs comes at a price premium, as it should. 10pt wheeled transports should be MGs only.

Re: Erich Honecker balance suggestions.

I would say even XA-185KT aint op with Bushmaster II for 15 points. I would, or at least that it's at the upper range of what 15pts should buy. The KPVT in comparison looks pretty funny dont you think? The 10 points only make OT-64s and BTR-60s a viable option, not really OP. It's in an awkward pla...

Much needed change. BTR-60s and Ot-64As really need buff.

10 point wheeled autocannons would be really OP, though. Would be fine if they made the KPTV HE only.

Re: F-15D Strike Eagle to 50% ECM

IMO if Eugen could implement new units, keep the F-15D as it is, but introduce the F-15 Strike Eagle with 4/2 AMRAAMs and 2 GBUs. Also people seem to think that D model is the Strike Eagle. It's because the in game version is doing Strike Eagle-ish things, like dropping LGBs. But the model and desi...

Re: US light riflemen as shock infantry

Ghurkas are 40 (30+10 for transport), for that price i can get 2 squads of fusi 90' is what i'm trying to say. (or rather finding a deck slot for gurkhas in a CMW deck is not so easy for me) On a town heavy map they can be good (one squad of gurkhas will trade well with two squads of Fusi 90 in CQC...
