[Nation Pack: Israel] Rumour control

This is Rumor Control. Here are the facts!

This forum has been quite lively, aflame one might say, since last week's Twitch session and a few sneak peaks into some iconici Israeli units' stats. This session was meant to showcase units, but balancing wasn't complete by then.
One week from release, it is much more advanced now, if not complete. Therefore, here are a few details which should address some of the main concerns about Tzahal:

MERKAVA III D BAZ:
* The model was indeed wrong, and was changed since, as you can see here.

* It doesn't have 24 front armor. Stats by then were a leftover of some tests.
We are aware that the Merkava III armor isn't to the level of a Challenger 2, but we didn't want Tzahal to end up with a high-end tank with only 20 front armor. Besides, the amount of reactive armor on Israeli tanks makes it quite hard to give a proper armor value: they would be very resilient to HEAT rounds, but much lesser to KE ones.
That is why we had decided to field the Merkava III D Baz "late" (including some modular armor later used on the IV, hence the model mistake), to get the more armored we could.
Therefore, Merkava III D Baz won't have 24 front armor, nor 20, but something right in the middle. And more side armor than you saw on Twitch ... Hence, armor-wise, the Merkava III D Baz won't be on par with the best super-heavies, but has excellent sight & stabs, and a very good gun-ATGM.

PLANES:
* Lavi's bomb loadout was reduced to 10 bombs.
* laser-guided bombs have lost accuracy ... all over the board, not only for Israel.

INFANTRY:
* Bedouins are restricted to two weapons, as for any 5-men regular recon squads.
* 5% stabs on infantry AT weapons was a bug, fixed by then.
* Maglan have been repriced accordingly to their efficiency, which means ... pricy.

And many more changes for you to discover on Octobre 4th ... ;)

So like.....21? Right in the middle is 22 but that's "on par."

The cheese has died! :o
Does this mean more LGBs?
Also, modding LGBs to "miss" has proven unsuccessful, what did you do to achieve this?

Excellent, thank you for keeping us in the loop, even though watching reddit go insane was pretty funny :lol:
If there's two kinds of players, those that like challenges and those that want a fair game, pubstomps should make everyone happy.

Nothing about the 400 r/m MG on standard line infantry and the 600 r/m MG on Shock (?).


Does that suggest an MG rebalance?
