A6E TRAM Armaments are Nerfed in Game

Fu*k this vehicle. Flies around multiple KM out of effective SPAA range and just dunks me all the time.

If it had it historically, it should probably have it in game. Simple really. If this specific tram needs to go up than so be it. Just add earlier variants to fulfill its role at said Br that it’s left behind.

I thought it was the SWIP that had Mav and Walleye capability, not the TRAM…

According to the website you linked, the TRAM didnt carry agm65s. You are looking at the SWIP which are more modern refits of the a6.

You could make a suggestion for a 1990s verson of the a6 with SWIP.

Because you’re right, it was the SWIP that added all of these things. His “source” also lists it’s the SWIP at the top. Quotation marks as well because cmano-db isn’t an accepted source anyway.

I’m still waiting for the SWIP, I hate how the best lower BR toptier CAS is a premium for US, because I’m not spending 70 euros on that. A-7E is nice too but it’s not as good and it’s also 10.7, which doesn’t fit any lineup. Probably when the SWIP arrives, it’s going to be like 11.0 or 11.3 however, so I guess it won’t solve that problem. Maybe the A-4M can however fill that ~10.0 range.

Oh yeah so the F-4E should be 12.7 with AIM-9Ms since it had them realistically! This logic fails at the start.

Also, the plane is the Intruder. The variant of the Intruder in game is the TRAM upgrade.

This is my avg. match at top tier, I die from one, get in a new vehicle, and get spawn bombed.

I honestly think that if we’re going to go as far as the SWIP, we might as well go a little further and get the A-6F. It may have been a prototype, but it did actually fly. Plus, it can properly defend itself at top tier (since it has AMRAAMs)

The inclusion of AMRAAM would just result in it being 12.3. Which is a BR/role that would already be filled with the AV-8B+.

my 10.3 experience is just being killed by trams and SU-25s, rip

I think the SWIP can fill in the 11.0-11.3 CAS role with TGP capability, like a counterpart to the Su-25SM3. AMRAAMs would make it go up too far, in which as mentioned the AV-8B can fill that role then.

Though I suppose for the same BR range something like the A-10C can also fill that role. Maybe the A-7F too? Though it being supersonic would probably make it higher BR. And between the A-10C and SWIP, I’d probably rather take the SWIP as it’s a bit faster.

I really want to see it like it was during Desert Storm (i.e. being annoying asf for the Iraqis),but then i remember that it would not be relaxing fighting that amount of power at 9.3

A lot of Desert Storm stuff is unfortunately quite nerfed.

There can be late variants and time period variants my friend.

I made a thread talking about all the stuff the A-6E was missing. I support it getting the weapons its missing but I also think it should go up in BR (at least for ground battles)

With the split BRs coming, that is certainly a possiblity. Though, like with the Su-39. Being a premium. They are hard to move, even with appropriate buffs. Gaijin hate doing it, unless its necessary. Been trying to get L26 on the Chally DS for ages. Even with an appropriate BR increase to 10.3

As a Desert Storm enthusiast (and expert),thank god LMAO

If a part of the game would be fixed according to their performance during The First Gulf War,we would have the US TT (from the M60A1 RISE P to the M1A1/IP in the ground and from the F-14 to the F-16 in the air)able to curbstomp every single mf that DARES to use a piece of Soviet equipment.

Just FYI for anyone curious: imagine going into a knife fight with a 20mm minigun and a Power Armour. That was the force of the Coalition during the war and what the Iraqis witnessed 24/7

Yeah. For me its Tornado Gr1 and Challenger DS.

what id give for the loadouts the Tornado Gr1 had in Desert Storm. JP233 please

The F-89 carried the AIR-2A Genie rocket- should it have it ingame?

Lmao, I meaaann… why tf not ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Surely team killing your entire team couldn’t possibly hurt the game haha

In all fairness, if a weapon/weapontype is in war thunder, it’s my firm belief that a vehicle that’s capable of using it and used it historically should have the option to use it.
