Re: Type 85 and 90: decent quality Chinese tanks

I think one thing that we need to consider is the playing style in red dragon. Obviously the style is already different in EE and ALB with the introduction of air units ( AA becomes significantly important/ aerial superiority is key to win ) Now in RD will also include naval combat and amphibious l...

Re: Chinese Units in Wargame Red Dragon

Edit: Isn't type 99 a 2000s unit? Not really. Entered service late 90's. It is basically the same development as ZTZ-98 anyway, the changes between 98 and 99 were not big. ZTZ-98 apparently entered service in 1996, and prototype in 1990. I think it fits the bill quite well, but ultimately it is up ...

Re: Type 85 and 90: decent quality Chinese tanks

What I am confused about is units like Eurofighter, Rafale, Eurocopter and OH-1 Ninja. They all basically have prototype/service dates after ZTZ-96/98. Which would make it quite odd should Eugen decide not to include 98/96. I guess Eugen decides what's in time frame or not, as MadMat said. They can...

Still not a true heavy tank that can play as China's T-64BV1 or M1A1. It is more like a spam tank destroyer.

Re: Chinese Units in Wargame Red Dragon

Well In service: 1999 Yes, but would have been ready much earlier had its development not been plagued by economical problems. It will still be a prototype nonetheless, but could have been fielded much earlier, like the Eryx or the Soviet attack helos. Whatever you do, dont mention anything like 'F...

Re: Chinese Units in Wargame Red Dragon

Ztz-96 and Ztz-98/99 (despite been within timeframe as a prototype) already denied. China is already Destined to spam. Just read this, and my heart sank. I literally felt half of my hype for RD just disintegrate :( The 98 and 96 are such iconic units for PLA. Imagine all of the mainland Chinese gam...

Re: Chinese Units in Wargame Red Dragon

Sorry to be butting in, but no. The Prototype timeline is up to 1991-1995 , with special cases being a year or two out tops, but it's not a rule. Eugen's logic for those slightly out of the timeframe prototypes is that they are either cool or provide a given nation with an interesting new unit and ...

Re: Type 85 and 90: decent quality Chinese tanks

Especially with germany getting a 1998 tank, I am sure china will get the Type 98 Wait what? Leopard 2A5 was put in service in 1998, wasn't it? Leopard 2A5 is ok (barely). What I am confused about is units like Eurofighter, Rafale, Eurocopter and OH-1 Ninja. They all basically have prototype/servic...

Re: Taiwan and US vs China

And Chinese Subs, are apparently really, really noisy. So much so we found current methods that worked to help detect Soviet subs in the 80's. http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2011/12/china-submarines/ As recently as 2007, China’s diesel-powered subs and a handful of nuclear-propelled models managed...
