In the absence of a compelling argument to the contrary, if REDFOR marines have access to high quality ASFs, then so too should BLUFOR.
For the same reason US has a strategic SAM and TBMs but USSR does not. "Not everyone can have everything"
That could be true if we were discussing why a type of unit, such as a tactical ballistic missile (TBM) or a Suppression of Enemy Air Defences (SEAD) helicopter, is accessible for one alliance but not another. However, we are not.
We are discussing why high quality units, of a type widely available to both alliances, is available for one alliance in Marine specialisation, but not for the other alliance. In fact, most high quality BLUFOR air superiority fighters (ASFs) are available for all deck specialisations, except Marine and Naval. For REDFOR, a range of high quality ASFs are available for all deck specialisations, including Marine, except Naval.
This does not appear to be a matter of asymmetrical balance, but rather seems to be little more than an omission on Eugen's part.
