Any REDFOR equivalent would require a new unit model.

ATACMS is the only cluster arty that the US gets and it can't be used defensively at all, unlike the Smerches which can blanket an approaching advance

Let's exchange 4x BM-30 to USA and 2xM270 ATACMS to USSR, deal? Very very fair democratic capitalistic amazing good deal

I can't tell if you're trolling or if you're seriously that butthurt about ATACMS.

Still requires a new missile, and taking large portions off of a model is a bit harder than just "cut/paste".

Actually it will be cool for exchange ATACMS for Smerch for 1 month,

let's see how they defending ATACMS is being fine like" it has long reload, it take time to aim, it has minimum range" when its not on your side. :lol:

Give Warsaw pact Scud missile with identical states as ATACMS, or just remove cluster MLRS from the game for FFS.
Dear Eugen, Please give T-72BU its iconic red-eye shtora system back! It looks mean and awesome!

Considering the CEP on the Scud is a little better than "It's in the right area code!" it really should have nothing of the sort.

The Smerch and the ATACMS (granted, the ATACMS does have more range) fill the same tactical role oddly enough. They're both deep penetration weapons designed to shoot up rear area targets, and that are totally out of scale in this game. It just happens the Smerch has been something NATO players had to deal with in the game, and now something equally not right for scale and annoying is available for NATO.

The ATACMS is just as valid as the Smerch. Simple as that. And there's no need to add yet more out of scale missiles.
Do I look like a reasonable man to you, or a peppermint nightmare?

I only play NATO, and I use the ATACMS all the time, but it is horribly unrealistic. The Block I and IA versions didn't have DPICM, just ICM. They couldn't kill tanks, or even moderately armored vehicles.

This is the submunition that they carried: http://fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/land/doc ... sld033.htm

Eh... ATACMS is pretty niche and in the majority of cases I'd rather have a Uragan or Smerch or non-ATACMS MLRS.
