Re: why the burratino should be completely removed from the

Oh, for the love of... Let's be a strong community and get past this. The buratino can be countered and destroyed, people have outlined it over and over again. Same goes for the BMPT. Let's all push for the fire effect to be removed or severely reduced. Buratinos are expensive, vulnerable and they t...

Re: Helicopter rockets dispersion

Think of helo carried rockets as a sort of airborne mortar. Not terribly accurate, but great at suppression of infantry in cover and destruction of soft targets. In the early years of the Vietnam War, the US equipped Hueys with large racks of rockets and called them Aerial Rocket Artillery. http://e...

Re: Grenade launchers in alb

I just have this feeling if it gets a grenade launcher it will turn into the BMPT. The LVTP-7 isn't based on a T-72 tank chassis. The BMPT is. The LVTP-7 isn't designed to slug it out with entrenched infantry in urban areas. The BMPT is. Let's remember that the LVTP-7 (and the entire AAV series) wa...

Re: The F117's standoff ability makes it invincible

It's by no means invincible. I've hit 117s with Kubs (and noticed) on three occasions, and I don't see it that often in games ;)

Besides, it's ultimately their commanding officer's fault for sending the NIGHThawks out on combat missions in the middle of the day.

Re: A-10

Long loiter capacity was one of the reasons the A-10 was chosen by the US Air Force over competing designs. I haven't used it enough in game to figure out how much time it has to stick around. Honestly, I usually evac it as soon as it hits the target because everyone and their cousin is shooting at ...
