Just want to see the World burn! Napalm and Flamethrowers

Postby Flieger » Thu 12 Sep 2013 15:33

Urban warfare is hell. The best way to clear a path for your troops is using flamethrower tanks or napalm bombs. Napalm launchers also come in handy, although more in defence.

I think every nation which historically possessed such weapons should have them in game. East Germany for example is ok, TO-55 and Pioniere can do the job. West Germany is lost however. Historically they had no flamethrowers, but napalm bombs could be carried by pretty much every combat plane they had. So I think it should have napalm bombs.

I am not knowledgeable enough when it comes to other nations but, again:
Every nation which historically possessed flamethrower tanks or napalm bombs should have them in game.

What are your thoughts?

I'm just glad that Yak38 is now has napalm bombs, so I can use it in my USSR deck :lol:

I'd like to see more napalm units (I can't get enough of the TO-62) but then it would just make urban fighting dull, napalm would just be the default method of winning and make holding buildings pointless really.

Get rid of infantry flamethrowers. No place on the modern battlefield.
RPO RYS is fine.

except we used them up until vietnam, which is the era all infantry is balanced and has loadouts for so they are useable in all decks...

Going by what you're saying, the British should receive SEAD for their aircraft as well.

Well, everyone who has napalm does use it per default, so there would not change much other than leveling the playfield, wouldn't it?

I always supported the historical claim of the UK to SEAD :)
The British ability to turn threads into a SEAD topic is amazing though. :lol:

Id love to somehow see most if not all nations get napalm (mainly for air)

Im pretty sure every single nation in game had aircraft and loadout the involved napalm, as it is still pretty effective at killing anything that isnt fully armored/ blocking route irl.

i prefer iron bombs to napalm to help clearing towns because with napalm you give the enemy time to react to an imminent attack while iron bombs just kill their inf and surpresses then and then you can roll in with inf and finish them
