what do you think about afghanskii and M163 CS ???

Postby gumpialfonso » Tue 23 Jul 2013 13:03

recently i put it in my decks, but i´m still waiting for the right opportunity to use them. in my opinion they need bit AP-Power (not much, maybe 1 or 2) so they´re able to fight against light armored vehicles. because they are finally supporters and in this role it need some attributes.

tell me your mind

regards

Theses units are always useful when attacking cities (with smoks) ou defending attacked spawn points.

They shred infantry. Great for clearing a spawn point that is being camped.

Afganski have one great advantage over any shilka. They are vehicles.

They are good at guarding rear areas, close to front lines and on flanks. The kind of units that you can't really rely too heavily on but are good when there is enough money to go around.

Obviously since they have short range they are not suited for big maps.

Attacking built up areas, clearing spawn, clearing cities, close in meatshields, supporting infantry.

I like the Afghanski but the M163 seems too expensive for the job. Afghanskis are a great cheap support unit for assaulting towns. BMP-1D + Afghanskis = awesomeness.

yes, maybe it can do that. but when the moment appears, that infantry stay on open battlefields??? :ugeek: very rarely.

mostly they relax in buildings or woods. and in this case they have to come very close and get shoot by RPG.

A waste of deck space and points. For killing infantry cheap tanks are just as good and tougher and for fighting aircraft their base 20%CTH makes them next to worthless.
