As far as i know Red Dragon takes place until 91 , and Israel received the patriot missile system in 1990 so why isn't it in the game ?
and spare me the "because it is OP" Israel is already lacking in AA ...

Only US gets patriot. The model in game is actually German but they don't get it either.

This is most likely because the addition of the patriot was so unpopular that Eugen figured they didn't want more of them. And frankly thank god. It has no place in the game.

In short, Ain't gonna happen.

Israel doesn't need another radar AA.
If you can micro well, it can have a very good AA.
What makes the AA generally weak is the fact that the only non-radar units are borderline terrible.

I think that for a long range radar AA the Hawks are more than sufficient.

Except for the fact that Eugen never removes anything once it's in. They might nerf it, they might gimp it but they will never remove it.

You know, if they're replacing the M60 ERA model with the Israeli's then wouldn't that mean they've actually well and truly discarded a model?

Still, giving to BD or EC is still possible.

I should hope not. Don't need that stuff proliferated.

Old model is still there. It hasn't been replaced.
