Guest Luetin Posted December 5, 2014 Share Posted December 5, 2014 Fairly self explanatory. One of the biggest problems I have noted on EU1 recently is the increased aggression of enemy Air. This seems after discussing with multiple people seem to be a change in the AI behaviour from Bohemia's end. It used to be that jets would merely circle an AO and that was the limit of their skill. Now they will hunt and destroy across the entire map area of Altis and even engage ground targets at the Airbase. In fact the AI has become so good in the air I have seen people accusing Zeus of controlling them multiple times because they cannot believe it's the AI. If you have a well experienced co-ordinated force on the server this can be handled or at least coped with. As we know though this is far from often the case. I saw recently a force on the server spend over an hour to take the radio tower down. I was running AA CAS in the Buzzard and ended up shooting down I think it was about 8 enemy jets. Just off of one AO that is : / With our 5 pilot slots, its now often that 2-3 pilots are still the max that is required as most forces only require large scale insert/evac at the beginning and end of engagements and in between its just small scale ferrying. So I would like to propose that we permanently station at least 1 Buzzard AA CAS on base. This will help significantly with engaging enemy air and protecting our Transports from inserting the forces. The Buzzard AA has the added benefit that it has only its cannon for ATG meaning it has extremely light capability vs ground targets. This means that we wont run the risk of someone going Airforce Rambo and nuking an entire AO leaving just the scraps behind for the majority of the players on the server. That is my request. I think it will benefit play overall on the server. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
