The czechs only got the strela 3... But i think its the strop which has the igla-1.

Igla-1 is not as good as fliegerfaust-teams of W-ger, but still more than nothing, especially if thyey would get low price and decent avalibility. Also hope that Fasta truck will switch to them instead of fantasy strela-3.

Can we do a bit of theorycraft on stats for the GROM? Using its real life range/warhead size and the such. Just some rough guessing.

As for the Grom - given the many improvements it had over the base Igla I would expect it to have stats similar to the Igla-N. With that in mind it might just become the best MANPADS in the Eastern Bloc arsenal. The lack of good man-portable systems is one of the biggest weaknesses of the Bloc, so a unit like the Grom will go a long way to rectify that.

While we're on the subject - shouldn't the Fasta-4 be armed with Strela-2s instead of Strela-3s? I found no mention of the NVA using the latter (though my reasearch is limited to the Internets, haven't ordered any new books yet :-(), so I wonder which ones were actually used. Perhaps an upgraded truck (Robur power!) with Iglas would be a good counterpart to the VLRA Mistral (which happens to be one of my favourite AA units in the game). :-)
