well at first I used afghanski for AAA role instead of shilkas they suck in that role so I stop using them.I think they are waste of points in game and in deck.

What I can tell about the M163 CS : IS GLORIOUS MEMBER OF GLORIOUS M113 FAMILY. :lol:

IS GLORIOUS PART OF MY DECK "GLORIOUS DESIGN OF M113". :mrgreen:

1 AP would really help the poor M163 CS, or their anti-aircraft capability should be buffed a little bit, like a little extra range or extra accuracy, or even just 2 of front armor. Note that adding 1 AP, if the code isn't modified, means the M163 CS wouldn't be able to engage highly armored threats like right now, meaning it can't stun/panick them unless we're at extremely close range...

But against any air target it will only have 20% or less chance to hit. It is beyond terrible for AA :|

aa doesn't always need to hit. it only needs to create enough noise to make the enemy draw his helos back.
i mean, how many people actually go "oh, it's just an m163cs, i can fly straight over this one"? maybe one in a hundred. the rest goes "OH NOEZ, SOME FANCY GATLING IS SHOOTING MY HELOS".
if i want to kill something, i can still use some good aa for that job, since i don't have to sacrifice any valuable support slots for the m163cs/afghanskii anyway...

I know I always freak out when getting my choppers within 1600m of crap AAA, well below rocket range.

Well i like the Afghanskii but i prefer the Shilka and the Biryusa they are all awsome at destroying infantry and if you place them well 3 or 4 of them are effective at destroying planes.

I think I am one of the few who never uses this thing.I use the ZSU's which does everything better for 5-10 points more.Plus can be used to bait SEAD for buk's and will actually hit planes.It does have some ground support potential the problem for me is.The BMPT and NOROV just seem like better choices in the vehicle section.

The Norov is imo underrated with 12 rof and 9 ACC 10 ap 3 he ....Paired with bmpt's they make for a deadly duo ;)

Current meta? No thanks. Maybe get the 20 dollar car with VDV which is better.

No one has tried them to stun tanks? If you amass enough of them they insta-stun tanks with the 2189382913981 bullets per seconds that they launch.

I cant speak for the pact side, but I think the CS should get a bit of a price decrease... If I remember correctly, in beta they had 2100m or 1700m range, in that ballpark anyway. Now they are 30 points and their range is pretty sub par compared to most vehicles.
