4 Martel anti radar missiles
8 1000lb bombs
4 sea Eagles
3 aj168 martels

Then you start looking at the unbuilt p.145 and p.150 super buccaneers that could Carry twice the payload twice as far!

You only start getting similar payloads when you look at the unbuilt big wing harriers Image

That he did.

Honestly, regardless of whether there are balance patches or not, or whether the DLC is balanced or not, it is nice to see a small revival of the forums and having a lot of familiar faces return. Might be the golden opportunity to get back into WG:RD for myself.

The timing has been incredibly convenient. There's been a small revival in this Squad community I work with. Started a few months back, daily 4v4s and what not and now with Red Dragon being as big as it is currently, it's the most fun I've had in years with Wargame. On and off over the last few years I'd pop in to slog through a 10v10 or something and I always left more unhappy than before, it's really refreshing to be having fun.

I updated my South Africa proposal in light of this historic occasion.

I do wonder if we'll see any other obscure vehicles with South Africa since there are quite a few I found, since South Africa did have their own variants around the T-72 though these were mostly for export (such as the T-72 "Tiger", T-72 with the G6 Howitzer Turret and the more obscure T-72 ZA-35 (South Africa itself never operated the T-72 afaik)).

Though more importantly, can't wait to see how the Rooikats will work in game.
Shame there isn't a Wargame that goes from 1914 to 2020.

I haven't included any UNITA units in my proposal but they bring a few things: Stinger, maybe a TOW on a GAZ, BRDM-2, BM-21, T-54/55s, T-34/85, PT-76s, and there's the possibility of getting Regulares in the various armoured transports UNITA managed to capture, which included BTR-60PB and maybe even some MT-LBs and BMP-1s.

SA T72s are post soviet union purches tanks so does not make sense. All so the crazy BMP and t72 version are all so far to new.


There are a few other strange things i would want to see instead like the MC90 a AML90 type vic with 2 front Armour, zt3s mount on Sabel, extra extra

UNITA does open the option to bunch of older red fore units. But i only think it will be max 2 infantry squads with BTR 60, BMP1, ural truck as transport

Stinger squad and Unita infantry with AKM, RPG7, RPD would be my guess. İ really think they only adding Unita for the stinger and any thing else would be chery on the cake. Though adding more Unita stuff would be easy since they adding nothing new just a bunch of Cat C vics and guns and stinger. İ doubt sa will get Unita TOW but it would be nice since going from Entac to swift is a big jump. So yeah full Unita line up two facstion for the price of one.

I'd agree with the inclusion of the SA T-72's as being unlikely as well on the fact that they already got the TTD (Technology Test Bed) with either the 105mm or 120mm (former was fitted to the Prototype while the latter had 3 models produced for the gun and were test fired).

Saying that though there should (with any luck (though this is speculation)) be some decent vehicles and prototypes being added such as the Class 3P Bismarck (with any luck)

Though hopefully they don't mislabel it as the TH800 which never existed beyond the drawing board.
