Hey everyone, It's been a few days but we're back with another Dev Diary, this time for NORAD. NORAD is in quite a good spot right now, and we did not want to change it very drastically as to alter their playstyle but rather give it some minor tweaks to increase it's range of strategic options and make some unit choices more of a trade-off.

NORAD is an excellent team deck, being very powerful at supporting it's allies and at forest fighting, though lacking in the capacity of fighting or defending deep town sectors. Even after the nerf of TH-495, the Canrifle + TH combo remains strong, and their forest fighting capability is further augmented by the CS and CEV.

NORAD plays like how we imagine USSR should play, not necessarily the most cost efficient fodder units, but with strong fire support and armor to make up for the deficit. We mostly aim to keep to how NORAD already is, while making going town-side a more viable option for them when necessary.

Our changes reflect this, with some the major ones including reverting Delta Force to their role of infantry grinders, making Navy Seals a more attractive option and the addition of the M2 Bradley COMVAT.

Sidenote (Atacms must die): The M270 Atacms has been re-rolled into an LRM, while we didn't believe the unit was broken, it was incredibly unfun to play against; especially for newer players. The Atacms fell into a strange area of the skill gap, newer and more inexperienced players would lose hundreds of points of units to something that they felt helpless to counter, while good players were able to easily dodge and avoid every shot, making it useless in high level play.

Can we get more details on the Atacms change, like numbers and stuff? Thank you.

I would like to point out that the US has never operated the M72A4. It's a Norwegian upgrade that competed against the AT-4 and lost.

Look at literally any other M270 with HE and you'll have your numbers.

It's basically got the stats that the M72A2/3 could have depending on source so it's not really that big a discrepancy.

The C7 replaced the C1A1 in service in 1984, quite rapidly in fact. Asides from that, I like the changes, Deltas with M72A4 makes a lot of sense, and the LRM M270 gives NORAD a decent MLRS for effective saturation fire.


In game terms, Can Rifle '85 had a worse rifle than base Can Rifles. This made no sense, so we changed it

Can confirm, it is now a copy of the current French LRM.

Sad to see that none of Xeno's many many reasonable air-tab suggestions were applied, and the US remains the nation with no AMRAAM multi-roles.

Also the mediocre tank tab wasn't touched.

While the "flavor" of strong fire support is there, I'd like to see bullshit like M163 CS toned down in favor of buffs elsewhere.

Out of curiosity, what are your goals for USSR?

I've been using them a lot in ranked lately and recent buffs to su122, t62, and pkm have helped them very significantly. Their mobility is now enough to compensate for mildly cost-ineffective infantry.
