For all the talk about balance, this is bullshit. Even more Blufor now?

Not buying it. ........

Well to be fair the Merkava Mk.III is using the 120mm and will probably get LAHAT. So that is pretty unique already, isn't it? :D

And obviously they won't act like supermen. But I generally like the addition of Israel because of the unique options you have (BLU TGM, Spike NLOS, some custom mod T-55s, heavy APCs and probably Centurions.

Edit: The Mk.III also has 60 km/h cruising speed. So that shouldn't be a problem! :lol:


The 120 also is slow firing iirc isnt it?

The only thing there which is unique is really the blu tank missile from something better than a sherry or a MBT70, the rest isnt sooo much unique stuff in terms of actual gameplay in my view.

Should be very similar to the L44, so the regular 9 rpm of the 120mm guns we have.

And if Eugen really wants to stretch it, we might see Mk.Is or Mk.IIs in the infantry transport role! :twisted:

Out of all the BLUEFOR nations, I'm happy that one got chosen that has the most amount of interesting units to bring to the table. But I'm more excited for Israeli Super Sherman vs Finnish StuG...

LAHAT is ootf,
The development of LAHAT began in the mid-1990s. IAI conducted airborne testing to integrate the missile on attack and transport helicopters. In October 1998, LAHAT was unveiled for the first time at the Association of the US Army (AUSA).

Thats not the best reason, but fair enough, it isnt exactly a balance issue having more blu nations to red, i never saw how it was a balance issue, do you get outnumbered in games? No. Its an options issue really, not really balance.

I doubt it, they had the chance to give the ANZAC a big gun transport and didnt, (vickers mk 11 AKA Viper) it is an issue of balance i suspect. But who knows, it might happen :)

looking back aqt the poll, its kind of disappointing that Bg+Romania got so few votes, even spain got more than those combined. the consensus ive seen is that the balkans should be included in full for Redfor...

people should be banned from voting for their own nation... nothing you can do about proxy IPs but still lol

My guess is that most people who would have voted romania/bulgaria voted yugoslavia instead.
