+1 I agree. I did not notice that Luftwaffe got significant indirect buffs with the merge of Heavy fortification and Field defenses:
Now you have also access to s-mines and bunkers which is great.
About Airborne assault:
I would just let the AT loiter appear with right at the start and not with the delay. That would help a lot without changing too much.
Luftwaffe looking pretty good now even without the Ostwind.
I just hope that Elite Armor and Firestorm got some love too. Thats all I#M asking for
Yeah, that's also an option.
I'm guessing that the balance team specifically lowered the potency of Airborne Assault AT strafe because the Stuka Bomb can spot for it, which is why I was proposing to replace it with Stuka runs
That said, if Airborne Assault is straight up buffed, since Sector Assault combines suppression and AT loiters, Airborne Assault could have bombing runs that target both vehicles and infantry, but have less damage potential against vehicles
Regarding Elite Armor. I really think that, Sturmtiger rework aside, reworking the 221/223 is the key. It has no impact whatsoever. It was used in the only OKW game in last weekends tournament series and it was bullied by at guns while doing chip damage to conscripts. If the timing can't change, it must be way cheaper. I think it would be much better if the 223 upgrade was like an m20 upgrade that gave it just better armor and durability, costed just 80 munition, and it didn't have the lockdown ability.
The current cost of the fully upgraded 223 is 320 mp and 30 fuel, and it's worse in every single way to the m20
