Helicopters
-AH-1J (CONFIRMED)

-F-16 with HE Bombs
-F-16 A2A load out
-F-16 with Mavericks


-Mobile spawn ships, like an LPD that launches LCACs that are preloaded through your deck settings
-I don't know how hard this would be to implement
-this goes for other ships as well, the ability to launch helicopters
-and that brings me to LHDs to launch primarily marine airborne troops, in maybe CH-53s, or CH-46s

-land based anti-ship missiles to counter ships such as the harpoon

____________________________________________________________________________________________

-More GBU armed planes
-JDAMs, maybe only as FIRE POSITION
-this maybe open the possibility of planes with more than 1 GBU
-TV guided bombs, (to balance aircraft with 1+ guided bombs (they would be guided), to make up for the fact its guided and may miss ALOT, give it plenty of HE power)

Re: New units for the USA

Postby AngrySwede » Sat 7 Sep 2013 02:01

You might want to change the title of your post to express that these are suggestions for Red Dragon, or you might have a lot of hate rolling your way from people who misunderstand what this post is about and didn't read the first sentence.


Of all these suggestions, the things that are most likely to make an appearance are the vehicles and the CH-46. I'd be very surprised if we see towed weapon systems, since Eugen seems to be keeping the theme of 'meeting engagements' for most of the battles, but hey, you never know what the new campaign will bring.

I for one only would really like to see CH-46 for the marines (maybe a supply version, if they feel like spoiling us) and the LAV-AD. However, I could see the M1A1 HA without much effort. The M1A2 might be a little bit of a stretch (even for a prototype) since they weren't delivered until around 98', and RD takes place around 91'.

And lastly: Welcome to the forums! Nice first post, and good job suggesting and not demanding vehicles. ;)

I thought about that, but I'm not sure if many people would like it, and I think it would only be work well on large maps, maybe a game mode where you have to capture strategic points?

If there's two kinds of players, those that like challenges and those that want a fair game, pubstomps should make everyone happy.
