Re: infantry too weak ...

while tanks are not that bad. That's a funny thing to say about a vehicle that was specificly designed to kill infantry. Back in WWI. Since then, tanks have been getting more and more specialized towards fighting each other/AT and got less effective at infantry hunting. Just look at a tank from the...

Re: infantry too weak ...

I think tank HE should be nerfed vs inf, and autocannons should be buffed. IRL autocannons and heavy grenade launchers are any infantryman's nightmare, while tanks are not that bad.

Simplest solution is give tanks -1 HE and autocannons +1 HE.

Best wishes,
Daniel

Re: NATO slightly better than PACT?

... You guys must be American or something, right? Because you both seem to be arguing over who has more people on their side. Newsflash: this ain't politics. Truth does not depend on who has more followers, merely on what the facts are. So far it looks like this: Recon - NATO wins. Arty - Call it e...

Re: increase shilka range... come on

AFAIK Shilka can even engage jets with some success. I would assume any heli within range would be toast in a couple seconds. Also, the effectiveness of its autocannons vs inf is pretty low IMO.

Best wishes,

Did they have a 4 speed gearbox: 3 gears for retreat and one forward gear, in case of enemies in the rear?

Re: NATO slightly better than PACT?

Quickly go over what we've talked about so far: 1) NATO has better recon. Pact exceptional recon is too expensive, too big, and too rare. A highly situational vehicle hardly ever fielded. Also, replying about helos - Mi-9 isn't armed, bigger than NATO recon, and more expensive. Hardly anyone fields ...

Re: NATO slightly better than PACT?

I'm sorry man......but that one line right there invalidates your entire thread. To competent players who do in fact play BOTH sides (NATO/PACT) as evenly as possible there is nothing more you could say to make any claim of imbalance you make here worth listening to. It is what it is....... :? ... ...

Re: NATO slightly better than PACT?

Pact has APC's that come with tank guns, recoilless rifles and/or ATGM's for dirt cheap. They have transport choppers with rocket pods. Everything is bristling with guns on Pact side. Sort-of true, but NATO isn't any worse. APCs: Autocannons actually rape most cheap PACT transports without much pro...
