For NATO it got to be the Strv 103. High cost and ineffective but it's an icon!

For Pact I love that tank destroyer thingie on MT-LB chasis, stylish although I've never seen it (same goes with BMP 685 and PT 91).

Cheap and amazing at Anti Infantry.


BMP-1D is better since it can take a LAW to the face.


Yup and can take 2-3 hits from a M1A1. Ridiculous how powerful the BMPs are.

AMX-10 RC SB.
I've never seen anyone else using it which is a shame - 85 off road, 150 onroad, fire power and accuracy of an MBT (with both decent AP and HE power.)

It's very, very good for CV Assasinations (the amount of times I've snuck one straight down the centre or across open fields on the side when no ones looking and got it into an aerial corridor.)
When I first started making a French deck I laughed at it but I have an immense amount of respect, much like for the Super Etendard.

Speaking of the S.E thats another one I rarely see but it's one of the best planes in the game as far as I'm concerned. You can get 6 of them for 80 points and it excels as a stand-for SEAD or my favoured tactic of taking out a CV within the first 30 seconds. Infiltration + Super Etendard = You win.

Still on topic of the French:
VLRA Mistral.
I've seen exactly one other person besides my self use it which is silly.
It's got amazing accuracy, is very fast and has saved the day more than a few times. Pair it up with some AMX 10s and you can wipe out an entire sector in ease.


My national french deck is my favourite.

someone can't do math :lol:

normally it should be one-shotted

if it isn't, then you should report it in bug reports.
NEXT TIME I SEE A DAMN FLAMEWAR INVOLVING DARTH-LAMPSHADE, FROSTPOOKY, LONERIFLE, FADE2GRAY, TROTSKYGRAD AND/OR ANYONE INVOLVED IN A DISCUSSION BETWEEN THEM I'M GOING TO HAND OUT BANS TO ANYONE USING ANYTHING LOOKING REMOTELY LIKE AN AD-HOMINEM

Royal Marines.

Pre patch they were pretty good, had a decent enough battle rifle and the mighty Charlie G but post patch they are absolutely godly, 10 acc with the Gustav and the CQC L4 Bren!

I hardly ever see these guys and I don't know why.

Ka-50, most people seem to disregard them in favor of Mi-28s or more Hinds, but Black Sharks snack on any helicopters or planes in range. Wonderful for killing Apaches and Cobras.
