Similar to the Russian anti-aircraft gun "Tunguska"

Hardly, the Tunguska is a gun/missile system while the Gepard is gun only. Also the Tunguska fires solid shells while the Gepard uses flack shells.

But yes they both have the same function in-game.

Actually, the Gepard can also carry missiles. The Gepard is also older than the Tunguska.

Well so much for my Fogfoot rush strategy.

BTW Can you guys add a "Hold position" button for individual units in the next release? It's so annoying when my perfectly placed unis go chase out from defensive position and ruin the entire defense layout.

I can still Frogfoot rush the enemy even with these because the armor of the frogfoot is good enought to witstand upto 4/6 stinger hits for me......

I guess this is going to be the Medium range AA for the ECA, I wonder what the long range one will be

Are there any British units yet or is this side purely German/french? May I suggest a unit akin to the Taranis automated UCAV or an especially super heavy tank for taking punishment what with the British armour being dominant today.

I probably think the Challenger tank might be for General Charles only....

Since the French got credits for most ECA infantry weapon and the Germans got for the armors, I think it's pretty safe to say the British will get credits for most of the ECA aircraft's.

We aren't actually using that kind of distinction. There may indeed be many German vehicles, but that's only the stuff that's been revealed so far. Our coming updates will reveal many units, including infantry, vehicles and aircraft, that represent the other countries e.g. the UK.

This unit reminds me of "Twin-Fang" of yours, which sports the same 35mm guns, but it only have flak shells and cannot fight infantry. Will you guys add the same "Birdshot" rounds to "Twin-fang"?

MARS2588 Nov 25 2012 replied:

Why would we do that? It'd take away from the uniqueness of both units. Also while the Twin Fang fires those typical 'black cloud' flak-rounds, the 'Birdshot' actually creates a 'cone' of shrapnel that looks very distinct.

Seems like a lot of the main tanks of the ECA will have close area anti-infantry defenses. Will they be an upgrade? If not, the GLA might find their terrorists pretty worthless against the ECA.

Don't worry it still happens but the ECA can prevent it if you pay attention, these fragmentation coutnermeasures help but it won't fix the problem it for you =)

I like the other one with the rotateing loader a little better, or is that the upgraded version?

With the initial mission of NATO first rendered absurd, then obsolete in the wake of the 2028 GLA insurrection, many European armies once again changed their operational doctrines back to a heavier, more localised Cold War era home defence mindset. As a result, the German Army decided to re-introduce the trusted Gepard Flakpanzer, whose most recent model was updated with the same fire-control radar and 35mm anti-aircraft gun used by the Sky Shield system, including the highly effective 'Birdshot' fragmentation round. This allows the Gepard to engage both air and soft ground targets and achieve effective results despite its slower rate of fire, an issue that can be mitigated via the installation of the new Revolverkanone 35 autocannon. In order to protect itself from infantry units that somehow make it past the two massive guns, the Gepard is also equipped with the same close area defence fragmentation grenades as the Leopard which proved to be an effective repellant against the suicide bombers of the GLA in North Africa.
