and your air force that is providing air support to this flanking force is doing what during this? chilling in hanger

Well if i am US marines, what else am i supposed to use to kill the T80UK trolling out a flag like its cool?


F/A-18Cs? :P


Isnt multi purpose cas though and damn expencive, 1 plane going into aa and escaping, not so good, 4 confusing the hell out the aa field, 1 might go down, but 3 return.

HE can....

Stun all
kill infantry
kill tanks


This is why people will nighthawk a tank, you hit it, you damage it, supplies come, you hit it, hit supplies too maybe, bigger boom, more damage, etc.


I agree nighthawk lone wolf bomb is pointless, but overall, it is a chipping effect and if used with other hits, deadly.

BTW, why is the Nighthawk's bomb HE 28? It's a 1000kg bomb, and every other 1000kg bomb in HE 20.

There was one time I baited with a T80UK in 10v10 match. My AA was hidden in nearby hedgerows and trees.

Nighthawk came, it died to 11 OSAs and 2 Tungs. One of my teammates then deployed a Mig 31 to patrol behind my AA.

Next thing I saw was 4 Tomcats, 9 Tornado cluster bombers, 4 Ravens, and 3 A10 Thunderbolts. Oh, and another Nighthawk. Another teammate then vomited around 3 Mig 25 Lazers to shoot down the bomber/Raven spam. All of that occurred just as 6 T80Us drove past the T80UK bait.

There was death everywhere.

Some people expect a 2000 lb bomb to kill a tank. Seems logical.
When in doubt blame UGBEAR.
