Nerf it? The BTR-90 would be much more capable with the Konkurs, not with some grenade launcher.


the konkurs-m sucks too, because of SACLOS flight time. Sure, most NATO ATGMs have SACLOS flight time but they also have higher acc

the AGS-17 just synergizes better with the BTR-90 as an infantry/APC mulcher

That would be Jeogockdae.

It was stuck in the Vehicle tab when it had atgm and I can't remember how much it cost, but I want to say 40 or 60 points. As a transport it couldn't be that expensive but it would definitely hurt availability except for Elite Recon infantry maybe still get four.

Jeogockdae at least gets a decent RPG in the 90' variant. Morskaya Pekhota does not.

And I think the BMP-2D should have the AGS-17 as well?

BMP-2D never had AGS-17 mounted in Afghanistan contrary to BMP-1D, it only had add-on armor.
About BTR-90 - IMO give it historically accurate 2A42 gun with BMP-2 obr 86 stats instead and decrease the price slightly.

No thanks, I already can't decide between Bmp-3, Bmp-2 and Bmd-2.

It was great in veh tab because you got like 9-13 of those and for a decent price, meaning a btr-90+brdm-3 combo was pretty good
Also a btr-90 was still cheaper than what you pay now for it + infantry and you had a lot more of them. So sending spetz + loads of btr-90 was an option

Why are you implying the BTR-90 needs an ATGM? It shreds through just about anything it gets the drop on under 10AV just fine. The thing would be awful with a Konkurs anyway, expensive and unable to stun lock.

Unless there was a separate BTR-90 entry that has all three weapons, I wouldn't want the ATGM on the BTR-90 again.
