(BTW, can we also get Su-27S back to 150pts with that?)
I don't understand why when Red Dragons have so many artillery to choose from ITF. . . Red Dragons in game is so lackluster in artillery. . .
Chonmaho V is probably my biggest Red Dragon wish in so far now. . .
A Su-27SK with less missiles also seems to be more realistic as IIRC Xeno pointed out that it couldn't get that much ECM with so many missiles. So in order to keep the ECM the Su should actually have less missiles.
A Polish copy of the Mig-29 for NK isn't possible however as they didn't have the R-73. But IMO having a 4xR-60M + 2 R-27R and a R-60M-only loadout for the NK Mig-29 could be interesting.
The former would be quite decent as an ASF while the latter would be relatively cheap and also quite close to the NL F-16A. It could be perfect as a heli-hunter and as a dogfighter.
China would probably benefit more than NK from new arties as they are somewhat more advanced than what they currently have (PLZ-89 and 45 and several modern MLRS).
Most of the units (not only the arties or the MLRS but also the non-radar SPAAGs and other stuff) NK could get aren't really
improvements but they could make the nation more realistic (by removing unhistorical stuff as these new units are somewhat
redundant) and would bring more variety in the roster (better armored arties, perhaps MLRS transports, wheeled AA transport, some
heavy SPAAGs that would be great for fire support or base defense, heavy MLRS that could provide more firepower, actually decent
On the NK tank roster: I would gladly remove the T-90S and the T-72M if the Chonma Ho V and some stat tweaks were added.
The Chonma Ho IV had a new, vastly improved turret. 7 rpm seems pretty much deserved and would really help the tank.
Moreover, the whole patchwork of FCS upgrades from earlier variants has been turned into a fully integrated, pretty advanced FCS and the stabilizers have been improved.
NK doesn't build fancy stuff like USSR and China do, but this is a late FCS, so i think that a 5% accuracy and stab boost (so to 55/25%) or even more for the stabs if they were actually advanced is possible.
This would already be a good way to get a better tank line, and the CH V would pretty much be a IV with more armor (14?), better accuracy and stabs, and an autoloader for the main gun. This would pretty much push it to a sort of DDR T-72M1 with better accuracy but less ROF.
This way NK could have a fairly decent medium tank line that isn't too imbalanced in price (it's not the 170pt T-90 with a 65pt T-72M or CH IV) so they can field relatively good numbers of them, and some of the low end units could be also slightly changed.
For example the T-62D could be renamed to Chonma Ho IM and the recon T-55 to T-54-3 (minor changes), the Type 59-I could receive a variant with slat armor and a T-55 line could be added (if useful at all).
