France are amazing?

Postby Abstract » Thu 23 May 2013 19:39

So I just played as france with a deck I threw together, and was amazingly suprised at how good they were, with the Mirage 2000C RDI far outreaching my expecations and my first use of a bomber the Super Etendard killing anything I sent it too, and the ever impactful Legion infantry also pulling there weight in the battle.

Could be my new favourite faction

They are very good when used properly, but don't expect to slog it out.

Haha it's not about this.. French army is a very good army but people don't understand the way it must be played..
Front Attack with french tank BIIIIIIIIIIIP wrong idea
If you play france you must be very fast, because we have lost because of it in 1939, so we learn.. :)

A French deck and a British deck can be very synergistic and powerful. SEAD and ATGM from French planes. Clusters and bombs from UK. Mirage pairs well with Sea Harrier as it can engage fighters and leave sea Harrier free to kill Helicopters.

Tanks are perfect compliments to each other and the Roland pairs well with the Rapier giving a good overlay of defence when combined with Javelins. Britain has some good rifle infantry (RM are awesome) and IFV for holding (Warrior) while France has some very fast APC's with some very good SMG infantry. Britain has cheap mortars (Abbot and standard self propelled mortars) while France can contribute AMX for accurate heavy artillery.

Is an awesome combination if you can work with your team mate and not do the usual "you take 1 side, I take the other". Let Britain hold town with ATGM, Chieftain, RM's, Warriors and Challengers while you move round the flank with ATGM and SMG infantry in fast APC's with Autocannons (autocannon VAB I think it is) and very fast tanks. As the enemy hits hard British units defending CV's you attack from flanks or even push into their own CV's.

Even Helicopters (Autocannon Gazelle with Lynx TOW or TOW 2) are synergistic.

True, but the problem is that you'll have more chance to see French & British players fighting each others than alongside ... :lol:

IIRC France has Milan F2 IFVs (Marder 1A3), right? Screw tanks, cheap screens and plentiful AP24 high-vet vehicle ATGM for the win! Also, autocannon seal.

Best wishes,
