Re: BMPT OP as hell !

Calm down, BMPT in game is not a modern one, but so-called Object 781 that was developed since 1986. Two prototypes were tested in 1987. The was another BMPT project of that time - Object 782. As a proof i can give only russian wiki that quotes a military history scientific journal http://ru.wikiped...

Re: Why is the T-64BV so tough?

Т-64 is not a 60's era tank despite its name, and especially not the BV which came out in 85. In any case, I do not feel the need to request an Ikalukranen strike, perhaps a simple SOF would do. T-64 was introduced in 1963 ...and it has a t-62 turret with 115mm cannon, it really was not more than a...

Re: SEAD planes as one-click hard counter to any AA

About 2 km ahead of your SAM.. increase that line of shilkas... I usually have around 10 shilkas in my frotn line and My resutls defending from planes have amazed even myself. THey sometiems can kill somethign but 3/4 planes die during their mission. The SAM will fire after the plane is stunned and...

Re: SEAD planes as one-click hard counter to any AA

If you disable the radar weapon on the AA units the SEAD planes wont be able to pick it up. That's right, but it means at best i start to play a nervous game "guess if it is a SEAD or a fighter-bomber" - the game i can't really win, only loose one turn later. Because if it's a SEAD and th...

SEAD planes as one-click hard counter to any AA

Playing for some nations with lack of long-range fighter/interceptor i was confused by the awkward situation. Player tries to build air defense with radar-guided SAMS'es (like Kub), but his opp annihlates it with just a primitive spam of cheap SEAD planes (like Jaguar). Anti-radar missles do not req...

Re: 203mm artillery useful or not ?

Completely useless. Even after fixing the multiple shooting of other atrys.

Re: Infantry Anti-Tank Capabilities

I think the cause of this disbalance is a well-known aiming bug: units loose cover at the moment they start aiming, not at the moment of shooting. That makes ambushes far less effective. If that is fixed everything will be okay. And i evaluate anti-tank power of infantry in W:EE was too damn high. A...

Re: Helicopters barely used in ALB

So you can use helicopters to bait high value planes into traps. A proud heavily armed assault helicopter as just a mere bait? What a humble emploi. The best desicion, i suppose, would be to make helis almost invisible to radar-guided sams below horizon or at very low alts, but it seems technically...

Re: Small maps

The problem is not only the maps are small, but they are also like "tunnels". Even on big maps like Telemark, there are several key spots on a map and only 1 or 2 narrow ways to them. It results that almost every game is a fight for 2 reinforcement corridors at the sides of a map and for a...

Re: Helicopters barely used in ALB

I would rather say that the planes are underpriced and way too effective against helis, especially landed. In RL a multi-purpose jet fighter costs 5 times more than an assault helicopter, and an agile heli is a very difficult target for a fighter. I think, fighters need to be a little more expensive...
