Why all the F22 hate?

Postby CloakandDagger » Thu 13 Mar 2014 16:11

I just don't get all the F22 hate going around. The US had the Nighthawk in ALB, it wasn't invincible or destroy balance like everyone seems to freak out about the F22 doing.

A Nighthawk carrying 4 AMRAAMs and 2 AIM-9Ms (or X) with exceptional ECM is a very, VERY powerful plane, honestly I am fine without it

F-117 is forced to fly over the enemy ADN to drop it´s bomb. It has no ECM and still has the Forum Reputation as an hard killable noob weapon.

F-22 would have: ECM, stealth, F&F missles and a high speed and turning rate. This would allow to use it as a frontline F-14 that has better missles and is never exposed to enemy fire, because it´s never spotted, and even if it is, the danger is miniamal due it´s ECM. Considering the imporatance of ASFs in RD, especially in the still mostly game-deciding openings, where there is no ADN, it would be very unfair to give one nation such a huge advantage.

It is felt that it is not easy to balance is my understanding.

In my opinion once it opens it's bay and fires, stealth should be reduced but I wonder if the engine can support variable stealth ratings.

In that way I think it could be manageable. But too late can't worry.

I'm not sure how much validity Iris' little mod has in regards to being historical, but the video he posted showed exactly how nasty an F-22 would be.

That was beautiful. It'd be broken as broken gets but even if it was just for single player, the F-22 would be amaaaaaazing.

What stats did iris give in terms of experience,ECM and stealth. Did he adjust the missiles as well?

And do any modders know if it's even possible to lower stealth stat when firing?
