IMHO such attack helos which are just transport helos should be eliminated/making pointless only real combat helos should be in DB. In RL the real combat capability difference between "hacked" transport helos and a real combat helo is huge which cannot model well WG even if you use ECM values.
For now, only special forces will have access to attack helicopter transports.
From my aspect as long only the Raven would be available it makes very unbalanced the game in air war. If you give also the USSR minors air power would be even weaker.
How does it work in another mod? If all AD units suffers even MANPAD adding such a SOJ aircraft is a huge mistake IMHO especially some RCG SAM is immune to SEAD some is not... Creating another A cat F-4G with AGM-88 seemt to me better.
I have rerolled the Raven into a more authentic SEAD/DEAD platform and will not be exploring the jammer weapon concept.
What is your plan with AAMs? Because it is also insane some ASF has 5+4 HE missile config which mean without crit they cannot kill even with two hits and airplane. 3 HE AAM is the worst joke ever comparing to 5HE MANPADs. IMHO none of AAM and SAM should have less HE than 5. Two hits against 0 AP should ensure the kill, the base ACC should be the determinant and their range.
That is a fair point to bring up. If you, or anyone else, has any suggestions I would be happy to hear them. My idea for the moment is to increase crit chances to scale with my MANPADS changes.Work in Progress
- Working on an installer program for the next version
- Will dramatically reduce the missile splash radius for all ground based AA weapons
- Looking into non-radar weapons for certain vehicles (Roland for now)
- Looking into Kub vs Neva according to molnibalage's posts
- Looking into MANPADS-equipped vehicle prices compared to infantry
- Looking into alternative loadouts and additions for Swedish aircraft
