I mean, doesnt give it R-73s and putting it at 11.3 do seems fair

if that thing gets R73, i want my aim 9l(i) for tornados

Wont be R-73s, not at 11.3.

Its supersonic. R-60s far more likely. Would be at least 11.7 with R-73s. Otherwise Aim-9Li or Aim-9M for Tornados

I think given the size of the 24M compared to the Tornado, it’s going to get R-73’s, it’s less maneuverable. 11.3 seems right.

Any 11.7 Tornado out there? That should get Li/M’s

Tornado Gr1s were cleared for Aim-9M but the next gen of Tornados like the Tornado Gr4 could come at 11.7 with 9Ms but it should have ASRAAM. But I doubt we’ll see those anytime soon due to their A2G being too strong at the moment.

Maneuvrability means nothing, Tornado is one of the least maneuvable jets at 11.3 anyway. its flat line speed. Its why the Jaguar Gr1A wont get Aim-9Ls and why the Tornado IDS are even at 11.0 (non guided payload) in the first place. They were too OP at 10.7.

Su-25s at 11/11.3 with R-73s is already relatively controversial.

Until they start dynamically balancing planes in ground RB, definitely not. I got out rated by a G.91 because some dude couldn’t be bothered to grind out an actual CAS plane, R-73 just couldn’t squeeze to the last few degrees to lock.

Also, we don’t know what the Su-24 will be like, but the Tornado isn’t quite a brick, at least not in RB.

Wasnt that given ERA that was specificly desgined for ifvs…

Tornado is a definition of the brick.

yup that is the case but i bet it would just detonate the tank if you sneezed on it

I really hope we get this thing, I’ve been waiting ages for it. Hopefully the later version with a stabilizer, at that.

The Kaktus ERA kit is specifically designed to be mounted on light vehicles such as the BMP, so the ERA won’t harm you.

This would be awesome. The K2 is one of the last 2 top end in service MBTs (the other one being the SEPv3) that I’m extremely hyped about.

It just looks so awesome.

well theoreticaly russia has new versions of T-90M and BVM in active service as well, guess 2A7HU counts as well, no idea about the chinese
