Quite a few things but I've gotta get to bed.
Why do you have Spetnaz VMF Recon in just a truck? They are the best Recon unit you can get as PACT, give them something worth while. If that Ural gets blapped you only have two. The helo is expensive but has huge range, and rockets. Believe it or not, that's enough to wipe out their base, if they aren't careful.
I haven't thought of it, the way I've used them is a while into a match as a way of trying to sneak up on their lines to spot holes, aa, things like that. So getting a fast transport or something that has a secondary use wasn't really on the books. Helos with rocket pods are great for supporting infantry insertions early game, as a way of stunning enemies along a road while the infantry unloads and gets into positions, but I don't expect to have to support a 2-man squad that wants to stay out of combat in that way.
This is one of the points I'm thinking about. The Grads stay, I find their stun/panic ability extremely useful, placed in advanced positions for mass panicking enemy advances, in preparation for pushes of my own, getting an upper hand in city fights etc. But what other piece of artillery should I get? I'm leaning towards substituting the Akula and the Buratino for a card of Nonas, but remain open to suggestions.Why have Rocket arty? Msta's are better barrage throughout the game, and Malka's will actually blow stuff up. Or Nona's, which are somewhat closer range but better.
I've never learned how to use flame tanks effectively. They get blasted on the way up to town edges by ATGMs or even LAWs before they get in range to fire their flamethrower. I guess a Yak 38 covers a wider set of situations than the Buratino though, so I might scrap it for one of those!You're missing out on the Mi-28 in exchange for a rather terrible vehicle, the Buratino is over-rated IMO (but each to their own) I find the TO-62's do just as good of a job for less enemy glory when your Buratino dies.
The current mix of tanks really are performing quite well. I find the Svir, added top armor and off road speed of the T72B gives it an edge v the high end T64s for my tank advances. T64 base models get the higher ROF, so I tend to mix them in together.Tanks are okay. Look at the T-64's over that T-72 though. Check out the SU-25T, also. Phenomenal. Or the Mig 21 Rocket planes, those are fun and 55 points, p cheap.
The 3100 range missile on the more expensive Tunguska has saved me too many times from Apaches trying to sneak up on me for me to abandon it.Just food for thought. Also I'd screw the Buk off and get 65 point Tunguskas, too. But that's just me.
Thanks for the tips! Any thoughts on what to scrap to be competitive in the airplane department?
