I see some of you people say that factions are not balanced,I disagree.I prefer to play with NATO because that is my way of waging war-attack is the only defense.NATO is more of a agressive style of playing faction than defensive WP which is more based on camping.Do not think that you can not attack with WP or defend with NATO equally good,skill is what makes diffrence-almost always. This is my analysis for NATO units(do not read this if you are not really interested):
1)They can move fast(evade artillery)
2)Engage different unit types(look at autocannons,they can shoot infantry,tanks,enemy apcs,helicopters at very close range and they are deadly because of superior firepower)
3)Mortar Aml60 comes with aml90 lynx which is a small,very fast and solid gun for anti infantry-light vehicle purpose while on the other hand aml 60 can stun enemy units with mortar,and use 84mm gun for self defense.Overall NATO mortars are very good low budget replacement of artillery that you need on front to react fast.
4)All NATO units that you need for the attack are cheap,and can be replaced at low cost
5)Speed gives faster reinforcements
6)Infantry is balanced due to the fact that you have better aa infantry(Iglas OWN!!!) on WP side while you have atgm milan f2 which has only 1 point of accuracy less while on the other hand has 3 points more at AP than konkurs which gives you advantage over more armored targets.Infantry to infantry combat depends on many factors,you can use mortars as short range mortar support while on the other hand you can use t55s to kill enemy infantry.Battle of special forces:NATO has deltas that are better than spetsnaz in AT role but you have VDV(paratroopers) which can replace AT infantry while stay sharp in close quarter combat,chasseurs famas are only good quality to price unit in infantry world if you ask me(but they deal less morale damage to enemy despite the fact that they kill them equally as fast as fusiliers or jaegers).4VPZU are great,but not godlike...you can use Fernspaehers equally effective.
7)NATO transports come at a price of 10,have 90+ km/h speed off road and have mgs or you can buy more expensive autocannon transport or ultra expensive bradleys while on pact you have bmps which are kind of waste of transport as much as bradleys
8)NATO atgms...Milan f2 infantry?Vet 3=60 price and you can kill the toughest of tanks.Bradley recon has I-TOWs or simple TOW,normal bradley without recon capabilites is also excellent,then comes in vab mephisto which is fast and very good,wiesel tows...
9)Tanks are in my presonal opinion quite balanced,NATO has amx tanks which have very good speed,autocannons and excellent gun without stabilizers and armor but come at a price of only 50 per units and you don't care about armor if you ask me if you have shturm in front of you.Your tanks will die of any atgm if it hits him...MBT 70 has very good atgm if you want atgm tanks you can also use sheridans but I don't like them they are like PACT atgm tank counterparts with thin armor....NATO has better stabilizers and guns on most tanks.Bmp 685?Yet NATO M8 AGS cavalry prototype tank is better.
10)NATO AA can be effective as WP one if you vet 4 your chapparals you have long range firing platform that can rarely miss.I never see any helicopters as threat be it mi 28 or mi 24 with kokon because they can only hit cheap,massively deployable units that I use and losing one of them represents nothing to me.
11)Logistics...I say equal as you can deploy 1 fob and just resupply your supply trucks and send them back into action.Mi 26 is very big and slow target,ideal for artillery or aa.Chinooks may carry less but are faster and can be more deployed.Caring about mgs on supply trucks?Just kill them and earn 25 points
12)NATO helicopters are without doubt better killers but also fragile ones.
13)Artillery...Malkas problem?Use amx auf1 with better rate of fire and armor which gives it better odds of survival.
Tube artillery,Smech is more expensive than m270 mlrs.NATO mortars?None WP unit has short range mortars but has buratino instead but buratino is risky to use because of short range...
