Would this be out of the question?

yea for 50 points each, the Roland gives you more Armor, speed, Missiles, Accuracy, and More Anti-Heli range.

+1 for a price drop for the rapier.

Although it would be nice, you also have to look at the stats that arent shown. Tracked rapiers can fling 8 missiles at your planes without reloading/pausing, while the Roland has to reload after 2. There are some other advantages not shown as well.

Though I do agree with you, either 45 points or a mobility buff to like 45km/h off road. Also, air detection should be very good no matter what, i dont see why it isnt in the first place, as with all radar AA.

It's amphibious so you know what that means :cry:. Are you sure you mean price nerf Fisto? A price nerf would raise the price.

Nerf = to make something less good. A price reduction would make it more cost effective, so it would be a cost buff.

Still better off than the Strela-10M.

Well, the Rapier IS amphibious... That alone is like 5 pts in Eugen's term :roll: . You also forgot that Rapier doesn't have that reload longer after 2 shots.

But still, I support a price BUFF (which is a price drop) for the Rapier since it lacks survivability, mobility accuracy and anti-helo range. I'd say 45pt seems reasonable.

You have to keep in mind that dropping the FSA to 45 points leaves it only 5 points more expensive than the IR Rapier, and that's a steal.

IMO the FSA is actually fine as is, as stated above this bad boy gets 8 missiles in a row compared to the 2 the Roland gets

Hmm, hard to say. Logically the Rapier should be the superior anti-jet AA (more missiles loaded so it doesn't need to get both hits to kill) but considering you don't really don't get jets that stay within your range long enough for this to be effective.

Which is a F&F system.
