Yes please. This should have happened a long time ago.
The entire chap line needs to go up by +2
Crotale has avail of 6 and it's a hell of a lot better in other aspects also (mobility, survival) than the M48A3 which is only 4
With rolands it gets trickier
Roland 3 definitely deserves +1 availability, not sure if +2
OSA AKM (6) vs roland 3 (4) have the same ranges but roland has 65% accuracy, osa has only 55% (osa has more mobility but roland has armor so let's say they're even)
Roland can only shoot 2 missiles before reloading but when you shoot at planes, you don't really need more anyway
Roland 2 (6) is the same story vs OSA-AK (8), 65% acc vs 50% acc, +1 is most definitely warranted, +2 maybe not so much
Roland 1 is already at 8 availability, compared to that Strela-10M has worse stats, availability of 6 and costs more despite roland having a 2.8 km range on helos unlike strela (2 shots before reload vs 4 shots before reload is more of an issue but I think that should affect price, roland is already cheaper, but should not make availability lower for the strela)
So seriously, on what grounds does crotale with 3.3km deserve the same availability as strela-10m
Either crotale needs to receive -1, or strela-10M +2
On the OSA-AKM vs. Roland 3 comparison: Mobility, amphibious capabilities and missile firing speed vs. accuracy, armor and missile quantity is a fair trade-off in my opinion. So an increase to OSA levels would be alright for the Roland 3s in my opinion. Also, HE power is not to forget. The OSA can one-shot planes and (most) NATO helicopters, while the Roland is always needing two hits on a plane and struggles against Hinds quite a bit.
On the Strela-10M vs. Crotale availability: Agreed. The Strela-10M should get a good buff in availability. We might actually see it more often in that case.
