F-117 Nighthawk or any stealth bomber
They are not used in shallow Close Air Support roles as Wargame depicts but rather large strategically oriented strike packages along with many other aircraft. They also cause unnecessary harm towards gameplay and minor nations, some of which do not have the capacity to sustain its damage or counter it effectively.
If you can't deal with it, sorry but you suck. And they don't take out models they spent $$$ to make. Otherwise the SMERCH would be out too.
I can deal with it, its not that hard, BUT
the fact is, it is seriously hurting gameplay in my opinion. F-117s are the bane of any Warsaw Pact minor, list all the units available or the tactics employed to kill it but fundamentally they are able to wreck any deck without BUKs and Mig-31s. Just to down it it causes too much in attrition to destroy them. Realism point of view: Stealth aircraft like F-117 does not perform close air support.
Like the Nighthawk, they usually do not participate in shallow close air support strikes. Using an AGM88 HARM on a Shilka is a complete waste of resources and also completely unauthentic as SEAD is usually used against radars and stationary radars and point defence AAs. I would prefer if the current SEAD aircraft were removed of anti-radiation missiles and repurposed into Electronic Warfare aircraft that decreases the accuracy of the air defence systems like usually performed using the 'exceptional ECM' except covering a wider area.
-all can be repurposed as jamming aircraft.
From a gameplay point of View and from a realism point of view, you're saying bollocks. At the range they operate, they can't really make the difference between the source of the radar: Mixed, mobile, etc...
I do not think you understand me, usually in typical combat operations involving shallow strikes by aircraft to perform CAS, anti-radiation missiles are usually not used on relatively small air defence assets such as Shilkas and OSAs, you can use other weapons to accomplish that role such as the AGM-65(20km range). Anti-radiation missiles are usually used against larger radars such as S-300 or Buk as Anti-radiation missiles are expensive.
It is purely from a realistic POV that anti radiation missiles will not be operated in a shallow close air support environment against small radar emitters like that of the shilka.
They can differentiate too, but like you said not at the range, basically 90% of the targets available for ARMs in this game is not suitable for its use. The only real targets for ARMs in the game is Buk, Buk M1 and Kub which actually would target the battery radar.....not present in the game.
But thank you for your opinion.

At the rate Bryan whines, I'm pretty sure Eugen is willing to model the Vatican's army before Singapore !
Yes it was funny the first time. Now not so.
