As in ALB, the RoF displayed in the armoury is inaccurate and in some cases just wrong.
I see. Does this mean the ROF stat is useless and every piece fires a set amount of shells? Or is this still influenced by the ROF system, albeit buggy(weird)?
I haven´t tested arty that much yet, so I don´t know it exactly. The only thing I can say about Arty is that it eats supply like nothing else. If you use Arty like in ALB (and I don´t mean spamming, I just mean sniping some spotted AA sometimes and stuff like that), one FOB won´t be enough for you. But you get what you pay for with the new arty (or sometimes way more).
But somehow, only mortars seem not to have profited from the global arty power increase.

Look at the Soviet Ka-50 and you know why. Combined with a Ka-52 for SEAD and recon, most AA units don´t pose a threat to it anymore. Longbow is also not bad, but I not had problems with it yet as REDFOR. Also, availability is generally higher then in ALB, so especially cheap choppers and high-end scout-hybrids come in high numbers, compared to ALB.
I see. Was kinda worried with the Crotale, increased range on the Rapier, TOR, new improved hawk, Roland 3, Thunguska-M etc etc. All with 2800 or 2800+range.
The Ka-50 has low difficulties dealing with AA. It is spitting fast missles at an imense fire rate and can take 1-2 hits due to armour and high HP. Only anything with 2800+ is a real problem for it, and only if the player uses it smart enough.
Cortale has a quite low availability, though. I don´t know why, but my most kills on choppers come from jets and AA choppers.
But yeah, I don´t see these "when everything else fails to stop them" Hinds as often anymore as in ALB.
