So the Patriot we have in-game was fully optimised for shooting at smaller aircraft and was more accurate than any other AA piece in use at the time? Ok. :roll:

MIM-104A was not optimized for ICBMs and was solely used for aircraft. The Patriot only started becoming used for ICBM with reduced AA effectiveness in PAC-1-onwards.

I would rather see no Patriot and Patriot replaced with something else than have it be a NEWA-truck copycat.

EUG could justify 10 HE for it with reduced range though. That might be interesting.

If NK of all countries can't get 10HE, there is no way in hell the Patriot is getting 10 HE.

Nork is a joke and should be treated as such.

Patriot bests Buk by 20kg, V600/NEWA by 30kg, and I-Hawk by 35kg.

All of those should obliterate a plane on a miss.If the patriot gets 10 HE all of those other aa should get it too.
How can anyone play to a faction's strength if the major flavour of that faction is overpriced units in every category?

My 2cents: Just reduce its accuracy to 55% and call it a day. It's not like it had that current uberaccuracy IRL (during ODS it failed to destroy any of the few and obsolete scuds fired by saddam)
