Your Favourite Unit?

Postby James-Bond » Sat 19 May 2018 03:22

So as the title says, what is your favourite Unit?
Favourite is opinion. Doesn't mean it has to be thee best unit.

My favourite is the T-72M1M
(T-80A is probably chuckling at my choice)
It is the backbone of my Eastern Bloc Tanks
Its extremely verstile & well rounded imo

1) I don't rely on the ATGM missle.
But it is nice that you can engage units beyond cannon range.
2) good for supporting behind a 'stronger' tanks to take on top tier tanks with ATGM.
3) Even as a standalone can cope well, vs majority of land threats
4) HE 4 cannon is good vs infantry
5) Good armour & 4 Top armour to survive arty spammers.
6) 90pts & good availability, seems to be underestimated by opponent.
7) Fast for a tank [cough] not a chieftain [cough]

A Lowlight, had 3 of these tanks spaced out thinking i could get a side shot or 2 /scare it away with missiles. The Leclerc had other ideas, it rushed forward without a care in the world and it wiped out all 3 lol (I wasn't prepared to lure, and should of retreated)

A Highlight of using this tank.
General Eastern Bloc vs Online players
Punching well above its weight.

F-117 Memehawk


It's...SEAD, AT, CAS, and Arty all wrapped up into one package. Also counter battery, though I can't be bothered to find one of those kill lists.

M1IP remains special in my heart after I used them in tandem with Apaches to hold back the Soviet horde in ALB. The fields were filled with T-80U/BVs.

Beyond the obvious (*points at signature*), I have to go for M1IP too. Such a lovely close quarters brawling tank, that took care of so many superheavies and infantrymen during my time in RD.

HVMS, place it well and it will tear through the enemy heavy tanks. I love suing it in 1v1. :lol:

Su-27s holds a special place, despite there are Su-27m and Su-27pu
There is something euphoric seeing two of them splashing a target with 2 R-27.

Has to be T-90. It's cuddly. And can both take and dish out punishment. It makes an impact on the battlefield. Usually take it as the T-72BU variant though. It's a bit sorta like the old T-72B on steroids, from Steel Panthers 2 and EE.

Top tier Challenger a bit too, being the same plus being big and slow and special.

BRM-1K was a bit special in EE, but it's been since overshadowed by other units, change in meta/mechanics etc. so not really a favourite nowadays.

ZSU-23-4 with no radar, gr8 for fire support and can provide air defense. For some reason ppl always send SEAD planes to search for it.
