The comparison of the F15A and SU27 in a gaming environment reveals a stark imbalance. The SU27’s six R27ER missiles grant it a significant advantage, allowing it to potentially down the F15A before it can even close in. Additionally, the SU27’s R73 missiles offer unparalleled dogfighting capabilities. In contrast, the F15A’s wings are excessively fragile in the test server, breaking under an 11G load in less than two seconds, while the SU27 withstands up to 13G with ease.
Many might argue that Americans also have AIM-54. However, experienced players know that the AIM54 can be easily evaded without extensive maneuvering, unlike the R27ER which has near ‘space weapon’ capabilities. The persistent presence of these advanced missiles in the Russian arsenal within the game has skewed the top BR. If Gaijin and Russian developers don’t address these biases, the top BR could become a hunting ground dominated by SU27 and J11, leading to a gameplay disaster.
Like all radar missiles you hug the ground to avoid them, it’s not the missile its the pilot, and yes it does carry a lot of R27ER’s but that’s because it was designed to do so and the R73’s while good doesn’t have the IRCCM like the AIM9M or the AAM 3 it trades that off for maneuverability.
The Su-27 is a supermaneuverable fighter aircraft it was designed to withstand the high G maneuvers while the F-15 was not, again this is just pilot error as not all wings are indestructible.
Yeah again all the “US gets everything muh, my nation needs this muh, my nation needs that muh.” We’re currently trying to find a genuine way the make the F-15A competitive agaisnt the Su-27. If you’re gonna get triggered each time we try to find a solution you might aswell leave this forum. Want better armament for you favorite nations buddy? make an actual proposition in your own thread, stop whining thanks.
Looks like making a “whine” thread works. The other time russia got the best IR missile, we made ourselves clear that we wanted the Aim-9M to be on par, and we got it. Trying to invade thread on other topics doesn’t work huh?
it’s so funny how you assume i’m demanding buffs for nations nobody mentioned, it’s almost as if you admit you have better stuff
But again you don’t get the point regardless, it’ll always be about how hard you cry because you can’t match the russian jets in X department and how there need to be solutions
Meanwhile minor nations are told to cope and do with what they have
But this just doesn’t compute in your brain and it probably won’t ever
Either way your attempt to find solutions is useless, they pretty much confirmed AMRAAM for next update, you will then be able to resume your crying because it’s not good enough then
In the meantime, cope
Make a thread for your minor nations, i no longer have time to argue with you, and this is getting us Nowhere on the topic of the F-15A being worse than the Su-27 in every way. You can find other way to cope that minor nation don’t get as much.
The Su-27 wins in most dogfight scenarios. It has access to 4 R-73s. Since it’s better in a dogfight, we’re proposing that the F-15 gets the upper hand in the BVR combat, to counter the Su-27 impressive 6 R-27ER we want the F-15A to get at least the Aim-7MH, and at best the Aim-120A.
