BTW USSR also have lots of IFV with all types of ATGM from Metys

USSR has no vehicle that uses the metys.
So, can I ask why we can't have US TOW ATGM

Because the whole weapon is too heavy for the infantry.
How can anyone play to a faction's strength if the major flavour of that faction is overpriced units in every category?

Stop being reasonable! This is an internet forum!

Thats a complete lie.

RBS 70 = 82 kilos
TOW = 90 kilos

1) Any VEHICLE ATGM from any country with less than 70% accuracy is not going to hit. All of them are worthless through the design of the game on this trait alone


Aham... In this case pls explain why works the helispam with 30% base ACC ATG during movement. Yes, they are not land based but ATGM always was gamble in WG universe, especially on blue side because of 2800 m ATGM range on red side...

USSR has no vehicle that uses the metys.

Whatever, you did not get the point. PACT has the same ATGM on IFV and inf. also have them. Period. The same principle is not applied for TOW inf...

Because the whole weapon is too heavy for the infantry.

Not, it is not, it has been proved. If you wish give them penalty set 15 km/h ot 10 km/h speed but even the penalty seems to me not "legit"...

Thats a complete lie.

RBS 70 = 82 kilos
TOW = 90 kilos

Amen brother.

So it looks like that the rbs70 is too heavy as well and needs to be removed.

90kg is too heavy for infantry.

RBS 70 is also easily transportable by a 5 man squad.... as is a TOW 5 man team
