Anyone Play Category C?

Postby Arcindrus » Sat 13 Jul 2013 09:53

Simple enough topic, I was wondering if anyone likes to play Category C regardless of what Category your opponent is playing?

If so, what are your favourite units and strategies?

I consistently perform badly against some guy who plays cat C. He deploys 4 tomcats along with a bunch of other air (2 aardvarks, 3 wild weasels and prowlers) and the rest of his deck consists of helicopters (cobras and heavy hogs) and cheap infantry. Never seen a tank, AA or other category unit.. The weakness in his deck is that he doesn't have anything on the ground that would effectively combat heavy tanks, but I never get around to deploying them effectively because it's too easy to swamp the AA network with that much air (and take it out doing so).

Either way it works well.

Depend on maps and if one have teammates.

City-heavy maps ( or sectors ) are quite good for use of C-cat decks. You have tons of good, veteran infantry to fight in them and AA is either quite nice by 4x Tomcat or just spam of MANPADS.. blowpipe might blow, but 40 of them will get you a sort of coverage :lol:

Catagory C France is surprisingly viable.

Massive A2A jets make up for lack of AA, and not to mention how many Milans and SS-11's you get...

Cat c soviet lets you REALLY spam OSAS, you can have large groups of osas everywhere and the infantry waves will just never stop, along with the base variant T-72 and mortar spam the soviet deck ig quite good, bring ALOT of AA, especially OSAS in several groups of 4 to have a chance to shoot down enemy airpower.

Yeah, mixed nato C-deck FTW

As said:
4 Tomcats
4 SEAD Jaguars per card ( or 2 Prowlers)
up to 20 Intruders ( 4 cards, 5 planes each :lol: ) and tons of Mirages F5

A lot of Stgv103Bs on veteran / elite; lot of AMX-13s; whole army of veteran / elite Cheiftnan's Mk.2 ( why to bother with anything else than those 3 heh? :P )
22 Royal Marines per card, 11 Kustjabers per card
22 Marder1 per card

11 I-Hawks per card


The only truly lacking departments are:
- heavy tanks ( capitan obvious )
- mid range / anti-helo AA
- direct counter to heavy tanks ( ATGMs are meh; also lack of serious helos)

Aardvark spam is back. Mixed NATO Cat C doesn't really lose anything of worth compare to '85.
