it's a one shot costly missile platform like IRL.

Without much french patriotism but maybe needed in response to 60 years of 2WW loser spirit and still nowaday of constant french bashing , remember that France get lot of German scientist and ingeneers from Missile programs alonside CCCP and USA. Making France on course with Space programs and missile engeenering. and YES, we are ahead UK and Germany on this point, its a fact. France has its own and successfull Space program, own armement industry (kind of failure at some point), AND own Nuclear Warhead without same budget of USA and CCCP.

France is/was the 4th sellor in armement industry with 7.7% of world production (ok US have 55% of it) and the sold of missiles take a huge part in it. For those who still hesitate on that point remember Falkland war and the Exocet, dont forgot that exocet was use by the Royal navy too in this war, and France does is job by avoiding Argentina to get those by international "black ?" market.
At that time frame french missile technology was at the best.

Spealing of the AS30L operate by super etendard in the game, this missile was mostly used in Desert Storm operation and Bosnian liberation war while 60 were use and scoring a 97% of accuracy.
In comparaison the AGM-65e Maverick (3325m 10acc/30ap in game) had a 85% hit score IRL.
I think AS30L deserve his rank ingame, don't forget that there is only one.

Now, in game speaking, the unit is ok in term of price and stat, just as well as other bombers, the rearmement time should be nealry twice to avoid brainless bomber spamming (dont ask about F117 systematic use as 2 inf unit in town)

Increase its cooldown time for rearming.

All that's really needed.

I haven't played a single team game where they turned games, neither on Pact or on Nato.

They're OP. But they need to be to counter all those OP USSR prototype tanks.

Guys, this plane has no defence, and it is a semi-active missile ! Why are you asking in balance for a single unit and do not look for the overall synergy of the unit in a deck ?

No defence, i.e. : neither an anti-air missile to defend itself nor a gun who could deter some fragile planes from engaging him. Put more AA, if you destroy him before the missile hits, you won the fight.

If anyone says this plane isn't a at least little imbalanced, they've never seen me play france :lol: Super Retards allllll daayyyyy evvverrryyyydaaayyyyy. Using jag As to light up the pact ADN while both planes level the grid means a near complete destruction of the pact ADN within a few raids, able to do it consistently, game after game after about 10min of ground fighting.

Could do with some minor price nerfs (read: +5 or +10), or having the pact Atgms planes buffed ever so slightly (IE: ecm) to match the quality of the super etendard.

Would everybody just stop whining over every freaking unit? The Super Etendard is FINE! It gets one missile. ONE MISSILE! Don't come to the forums and whine because you forgot to provide AA cover for your T-80Us once.

You gotta ask the question why a pact player deployes T-80Us against a french player in the first place, or at least as long as the Super-Es arent shot down, they are surely needed to get an edge over one of the weakest armored forces (french).

That could work. Lengthened rearming time.
