(3US) P-47D with AT rockets removed
Wow America finally gets a competent Ground attack plane and it gets removed i guess only Axis should have good ground attack after all they only had 3 planes left at this time 2 of wich were ground attack so i guess it makes sense :roll:

Back to the dodging 88s and and countless imaginary german fighters just to drop off my nerf dart payload just to tickle a german tank while i can lose a bunch of tanks in one pass by a plane with a pak-40 on it cool 1sided balance.

I really got to wonder at what point German units get nerfed. Or just removed like really. it gets really annoying seeing Germany just roll over everything 2 games in a row. And really if anyones saying Germany isnt signifigently more powerfull then the Allies they are just mad that they dont start the game and get an instant victory. Really launch a game it will take 30-45 minutes just like SD-44 to get a German game but you play as Allies instant game noone wants to play allies and making them weaker doesnt really help.
How i feel when reading the OFF TOPIC section of the forums http://imgur.com/gallery/t9IXqDs

I was afraid of a change like this coming. Many people may feel vindicated, but I've always pointed to the German armoured superiority and anti-tank measures as easy counters to whatever they're complaining about. I really don't understand why people were so adamant about nerfing a division that could stand somewhat (emphasis on somewhat) evenly with divisions such as the 5th panzer, the Panzer Lehr and the 21st. My suspicion is that there are a very vocal minority that are unable to play a game only slightly balanced toward the Axis when playing as the faction. In my personal opinion, the game's balance is now more in favour of the Axis (now especially more if using the 3rd Armoured). For lack of a better term, I use "mob mentality" as another facet in this argument. I'm sure there's a better way to describe this, but it seems that many players' perceptions were influenced by the vocal minority, especially the ones who play as the "Axis" more often than the "Allies & Comintern". This led to people "jumping on the bandwagon", creating a cascading effect of forming a consensus that did not necessarily represent the views of the majority of players, but only seemed to. Go ahead and call me biased, but I never held the view of the 3rd U.S. Armoured Division being overpowered myself, among other things.

Of course, Eugen, you could and very well may have come to your own conclusions by using analytical data that the player base does not have access to. Perhaps with the player feedback factored in to a certain degree.

Eugen, I suggest that you roll back at least some of the nerfs applied to the U.S. 3rd Armoured, particularly to its air support tab and the removal of a Calliope. The Axis currently possess MLRS weapons that can wipe out armour quite easily which perform quite similarly to the Calliope (I I'm sure you know what units I'm referring to). The Axis also possess many tank killer aircraft platforms. Removing what the Americans had inhibits the pursuit of balance of the game, rather than enhancing it.

As a disclaimer, I do not have statistical evidence to back up my claims as of this post.

hi
First, I apologize in advance that it may be difficult to read using a translator.
I just bought Steel Division 2.
American Cardio is still a two card, need to modify with a card.
The price increase of p-47 is desirable for playing the United States, and the increase in ammunition consumption is very appropriate.
I think this is a reconnaissance p-6 because of the aircraft's exhaustion. What is it to make 1/3/5 or 1/2/5 by increasing the available capacity of b and c phases by 1 for this unit? You will not be able to use your plane in the c phase where ground AA is in full swing.
Users who frequent airplanes will have a lot of risk involved in taking a reconnaissance aircraft in phase a, and if they do, users who have difficulty in getting visibility will have less air spam that can make war games look like helicopter spam.
However, the removal of the p-47 with damage 3 at-rocket is the only way to attack the side or rear of the enemy's mid-range vehicle, for example, the means of catching a lot of is heavy vehicles. The damage 3 rocket p-47 can not be brought into a phase with one card, so it would be better to add it. The p-47, with a two-man rocket, is merely retreating the armored tanks to some extent.
I think the reduction of the air slot to 4 cards is excessive.
The Air Taps will consist of two packs of fighters, one pack of reconnaissance units and one pack of rockets p-47. If so, you must choose one of the b-26, the p-51, or the rockets to bomb
If this is what you want, you may want to keep 4 cards.
In my opinion, it would be better to have 5 spaces.
I want Steel Division 2 to be good.
Thank you for reading this comment.
