Yes you missed something, they just don't have 500 / 800 points supply trucks :(

Unacceptable! Germany totally unplayable. Eugene bring German supply in line with other nations, now or i uninstall!

You mean painted in red? Have no idea, could be some nonsense for those buying the game at alpha-testing stage or something like that.

So are Ka-52, BTR-90, and the second generation Flanker crowd more realistic? You could question why the Mi-28 is even in the game when the Akula already is there.

Agreed. I mean, the Patriot was a bad idea, but if we're considering unicorns that don't belong in the game, all of the US's toys were at least in testing for adoption stage, including the missing F-22 (the one glaring exception being the ATACMs, which was theorized but never produced). BTR-90 was never adopted in time frame, and is still yet to be mass produced. Akula and Mi-28 not in production until 2000s, BMPT (though, to be fair, Comvat and M8 are in the same boat), Zhalo, IL-102, and MRAAM multiroles up the wazoo, despite a noticeable lack of such aircraft in the VVS doctrine at the time.

The units may have been implemented poorly, but if we're talking about unicorns, the USSR has far more ridiculous units (that either never existed, or barely did) than the US, whose "unicorns" do exist, and did in at least some form before the end of the '95.

Eugen simply decided they do not care to replicate Cold War asymmetrical balance. They went for strict points equivalency and that´s more or less what you have.

It's probably because of old beta tester status and unintentional at this point. I'll ask Eugen about it.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that was the color for the first beta testers.

ATACMS does exist irl and has been produced well in time frame. There have been several upgrades though the years.
