I have been on the receiving end of napalm and still manage to take cities, it is not a GG tactic like dropping a Paveway on a helo blob or F-111C along their attack route. It is easily countered by just driving through or using helos, in fact helos are the best way to get to a position first and napalm really doesn't matter much to them.

You can get an ASF for as low as 65 points or can you can just get a cheap fighter and use it to scare off napalm and try knock out a helo in the opening, hell even using any jet with IRs works.
