Here we go again....
Can we just report this guy already? And yes this is coming form a person who actually believe in a god.
Dammit Spudman why you post this?
I'm so hungry right now....
This page needs a cleanup....
And BTW, can you name a few "new precision munitions" that entered service in large number in the last decade?
"They develop new precision munitions, and some of the ones they have right now are the cheapest and most economic and effective ones to use, proven by the massive amounts used in Iraq/Afghanistan."
They were used it massive amounts because US spend massive amounts of money. US defense budget is bigger than the combined budget of seven other nations that follows behind. The munitions are actually more expensive then their foreign counterparts if you look at the figures.
"As to Russia, what new airplanes do they have? The Pak Fa looks like a huge failure right now and the Russian government seems to have lukewarm interest in buying it."
PAK FA project suffered setbacks true but that's the reason the production plans has been halted and so the MoD can work out the dents with those 12 pre production aircraft.
"And the Pak Da is nothing but a fantasy."
Designs studies dose not counts as fantasy". And besides, setback to that project means Blackjacks are getting a second life (Reopening of the production line has been confirmed), that not a bad thing in any way.
"Yes, Russia has some upgraded 3.gen fighters,"
"Eurofighter which spends more time grounded in some countries"
While Rafael and Gripen works without and major trouble, not really sure what point you're trying to make with that.
Not exactly sure under what basis you are making these claim tomato, everything US uses nowadays (with a handful of exceptions) are weaoons that were developed in their 90's. Even their air forces, the center point of their doctrine, is using jet designs that are two decades old. Compared to that, both Europe and Russia is now developing successful new weapons while US for the most part has endened up with a bunch of massively expensive failed project. Unless US manage to patch up its defense industry, they are going to fall behind in the arms race within a few decades. It is as simple as that.
Supreme Commander II has that concept covered.
Thanks! And Yeah, that's why there is a "Automated landing system suite". Landing is standard situation is meant to be handled by computers. "Hands on" approach is for emergency only.
BTW you forgot to mention India, China, South Korea, Turkey in the "makeing new tanks" list.
Let's see how many variants of the Leopard 2 has been made and when they entered service:
Leopard 2: 1979.
Leopard 2A1: 1982.
Leopard 2A2: 1984.
Leopard 2A3: 1984.
Leopard 2A4: 1985.
Leopard 2A5: 1998.
Leopard 2A6: 1999.
Leopard 2E: 2004.
Leopard 2 PSO: 2006.(Introduced. Did not enter service)
Leopard 2A7: 2014.
Now lets compare it with the Abrams variants that did entered production in significant numbers:
See the gap?
The Leopard 2 and the leopard 2A7 are effectively two different vehicles and has little in common. While 'murica is still using a three decade old design and done nothing significant to improve it.
The Red Line seems surprisingly well equipped in this picture.
Believe it or not, caramels do served as light artillery.
True, though I know a few people here who would love roasted bacon.....
You would think USA would get the hint and start working on a replacement of the Abrams.
Although the M1A3 can be a "upgrade" only in name.....
And make sure you have an emergency pass to Argentina....
That's the BMPT actually.
Well here goes Russian "Rough and tough" stereotype, this thing looks like it has been pulled straight out of science fiction!
Read the description will you?
If you survive that long that is.
Only seven? meh. I once killed eleven ships along with nine assist in my destroyer.
Died five times though.....
Let's make fun of the Blinder they said, it won't Backfire they said...
A dark skinned KKK member trying to recruit a yellow skinned man.....?
Romel, Guderian, Hoth, Patton, Rokossovsky, Kuznetsov, and hundreds of other generals are NOT amused by this bul*hit. All of them fought besides there troops in more than one battle.
Besides all generals attain their ranks after going trough the same suffering their underlings go trough as they all start their careers as junior officers.
"According to the map Sovereign, the X08 Selva Tigre was developed sometime before 2014 by the Federation defense contractor "Industrias Soberanas" to serve as the country's main battle tank. It was later scrapped in favor of better-armored T-90MS, that replaced the X08 as Federation's Main Battle Tank."
In other words, we just have to make the latest Russian tank look s*it in front of our twenty years (M1A2) old design.
Assuming this was real, I doubt it ever got off the drawing board...
I hate facing Snipers when I'm commanding the Destroyer. You can never get to effective firing range before it kills you. The Zarek line is something I haven't really touched yet. Mainly because I don't like the look of those ships. And I actually enjoyed the Corvette, the trick is to simply to team up with a Flagship, keep it alive, have it pull the weight for you then ninza the kill :D.
If the enemy fleet have more than one attack craft, then it's a trap for me :/
Currently have enough xp unlock either the Assassin and Sniper. can't really decide which one I sould go for. Those are the only USR ships I have yet to unlock.
Right now I'm trying out the Titan Reaper. Boy that thing pack a mean punch. Don't have much armor though.
