Surprised about Sead harrier losing at card, must have been too many flying round for Eugens liking.
This annoys me somewhat, but let's be cereal. Get them re-configured to marine ASFs and let's get a Tornado reconfigured as a GR.4 - just one card of GR.4s would be entirely fair.
Agree, a British flavoured Tornado ECR would have been better. I wasnt aware Harrier was even cleared for ALARM, only ever seen it on Tornado's, so it possibly has a historical element to it!
Tornado GR.4 wouldn't have 40% ECM instead of the 50% ECM of the ECR, but would be capable of carrying 4-6 ALARM as well as 2xAIM-9L, if I recall Xeno's information correctly.
The F.2 is a redundant unit that is wasting a slot - it's post-1980 like F.3 yet with worse stats; its only use currently is a totally inauthentic availability/veterancy boost. It never entered real service in any serious capacity; it had a concrete counterweight instead of a radar while the F.3 was awaited. The current F.3 in-game is using the model for a IDS ('GR') series Tornado. The current F.2 in-game is using the correct Tornado ADV model. Solution?
Firstly, take the current F.3 model, re-role as GR.4. 40% ECM, Prototype of 1 card, 2-AIM-9L, plenty of ALARMs on its underbelly.
Secondly, take the current F.2 model, re-role as F.3 with the same stats as before; essentially just transferring the F.3 to the correct airframe model.
Thirdly, take the Sea Harrier FA.2, and give it's correct and realistic role as a naval ASF. AIM-9L + AIM-120 AMRAAM, same stats otherwise as currently.
Optionally, take the ANZAC F-4E Phantom II model, re-role to UK deck as Phantom FGR.2. 1978 unit, 800 or 850km/h due to Rolls Royce engines being slower but with more T.O.T. 4x AIM-9L, 4x Skyflash. 20% ECM. Appropriate availability/veterancy options, remembering that these were
in widespread service in the RAF and serve a useful purpose in the deck as a pre-1980 ASF. Hell, the Phantom model iseless to ANZAC right now as a 1969 junkbucket with AIM-9Bs...
