What? US has gotten something every single update this year. I think 7 new aircraft. Including THE meta airframe, the F-16C. They probably will get something new this update. But they dont NEED anything. The F-16C will probably be THE meta aircraft for a while yet. even without ARH. Its US we are talking about. They’ll probably get F-15 with AMRAAM by March, but it would be nice for one. single. update. For them to NOT get something and instead perhaps one of the nations that havent gotten anything in the better part of a year to get something instead.
It is incredible childish and selfish to DEMAND something every. single. update. And minor nations to be denied anything because “MERICA”
Jealousy is least of it, probably. But at the end of the day, the US and USSR simply have more options and a much larger player base, so it would be silly for Gaijin to treat them like minor countries like Britain.
Just imagine for a moment, if the last aircraft the US recieved was the F-14A. That was it. No F-14B, No F-16, No F-111.
A year on and the best thing you had to fight the Mig-29SMT and F-16s of other nations was the F-14A. Would you be happy? Or would you expect something new eventually?
Britain and Sweden have been promised a new top tier aircraft this update already. We know something is coming for us. But just because 2 minor nations that are still fielding 11.3s is getting something new. Does not by default mean that the US is required to get something as well. That is just childish
I think this was exactly what we asked for 2 or 3 years ago and it’s exactly what Gaijin is doing now.
Look how the situation of some minor nations improved these last two years:
Italy received a lot of love and even a subtree. It is even receiving battleships.
Japan received its long-awaited MBT, a paper fighter (it’s the most romantic thing here) and a new and long-awaited SPAA.
France received its navy among other things.
China received its mbts and spaa. (I started playing China since it came out and stopped playing it because I didn’t have an MBT and a SPAA at the top level and the same thing happened to me with Israel)
Sweden reinforced its ranks on land and in the air with Finland.
And Great Britain received light vehicles on all lines.
What is happening today are our complaints from a couple of years ago. The development is not as fast as we think, it is very slow in fact.
Britain hasnt had a new aircraft for our TT since March and it was a rather DOA 11.3.
Maybe I want the best for Britain. Im British. But the fact that Britain by the time of the next major update, Wont have had anything new for 9 months and what we do have. Is not by any stretch of the word “top tier”. I think expecting something new more than once per year is not unreasonable.
Meanwhile the US has had:
and is expected to get at least one new airframe this december.
I dont expect Britain to get a new vehicle every single update. I dont expect any nation to get something every single update. Every Nation should get something at equal and regular intervals. That would be only fair way to do it.
But no, The US and USSR have gotten what 7 new airframes this year. Britain has gotten 1. If you think that is fair. Then you need to re-evaluate that stance
What? We arent allowed vehicles that actually saw service? Maybe a few prototypes on there, But for the most part i’ve avoided prototypes for that list. Focusing only on airframes that actually entered service
They confirmed a new aircraft for the UK. I do not mean to be pedantic but a new fighter would mean it would have to be something from abroad as the UK has no fighters to cover this gap given EF is denied.
By making it an aircraft they open it up to the Tornado (interceptor) or the SHar(strike/fleet air defence fighter).
However, the in-game armor of Japan’s most advanced tank, the Type 10 tank, is extremely unreliable. Especially the composite armor on the sides compared to MBTs from other countries…you guessed it.
Furthermore, most of them, such as TKX(P) and TKX, are only prototypes.
