Re: French Units in Red Dragon

IMO the saddest thing about french AA is that they didn't remplace this one : http://desjouetsmilitairesaleveildespetitscommedesgrands.hautetfort.com/media/00/01/610465026.jpg with this one : http://www.servir-et-defendre.org/archives_du_dinosaure/blindes/amx_10raa/bis_amx10raa_1.sd.jpg

Re: French Units in Red Dragon

If I remember correctly the VBL Mistral is export only (and maybe post 2000 but I wouldn't bet on that). The only wheeled Mistral platforms in french service are the Pamela on VLRA, already in game, and the ASPIC on P4 used by the airforce : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/16/M...

Re: More armored supply carriers

If you want to keep realism, it's hard to have any non generic supply unit (like the current trucks and helos). Armored vehicles are expensive and thus often specialized and restricted to specific systems. Supply in wargame is composed of 3 parts : fuel, ammo, spare parts/medical supplies. Any suppl...

Re: (X)M975 Roland 2

The MICA program started in 87, but it wasn't ready for production before 1996. In my eyes it's more stretched than the M6 that is based on two existing systems and took about one year to develop, meaning that it could have been rushed more easily. Well, in the end, it depends of which date is consi...

Re: (X)M975 Roland 2

On a sidenote, the Linebacker isn't particularly OOTF compared to some of the other prototypes in WRD. MICA EM and maybe even IR are in, so...

Re: [RD] Unit of the Day

Don't hope for the Mirage 4000 ; the french air force got the Rafale, and modelling another plane that would have roughly the same role is a waste of ressources. (though the Rafale itself was unnecessary IMO : The Mirage 2000-5 would have been just as fine) Anyways, if the Armée de l'Air get any new...

The magazines are the same on every chassis : 4 missiles on each side plus 2 ready to fire, 10 total.

Re: Minor modeling error: Finnish markings on the USSR BMP-1

It's not an error, it's an easter egg for finnish players, so they aren't too sad because Finland is not a playable faction in ALB 8-)
Like the BMP-2 with finnish roundels in WEE. Finnish bias.

Re: New trait

If it didn't change between WEE and ALB, wheeled vehicles suffer a 50% speed penalty in forest, while tracked vehicles have a 35% reduction. But on the other side wheeled vehicles often have a greater base speed. I agree that the "detracked" critic happens a bit too often for my taste. &qu...

Should be represented in RD with a 'engine stalled' critical after every 1 km travelled! :lol:

Quite true. If Singapore is ever in the game, I'll ask Madmat to include that interesting perk on all their AMX-10P :twisted:
