airborne and overwatch both need tuning.
i feel overwatch has better synergy with stock OKW units, compared to airborne/USF.
JLI+Obers is very comparable to paths/paras. But one needs to sink in huge amounts of muni and manpower in airborne to make it work proper, while overwatch pretty much has what it needs from the start.
perhaps JLI needs an upgrade barrier,like 60 muni for sniping and cloak, to even out the spam.
-goliaths are only an issue when smoked in towards an emplacement.
-For the fatherland is a bonus, but not anything great.
-105 lefh is nice
-sector assault feels strong for sure, is it stronger than its peers? or is it just a copy when it comes to DMG? as allied tanks have less HP?
nerf JLI/paths by max 1-2 units on field, and give upgrade barrier to JLI.
im on the fence regarding sector assault, some commanders always end up on bottom/top no matter what balance department does.
I would hope Overwatch has better synergy, 2 of Airbornes abilities are literally access to stock units while everything in Overwatch is a bonus. How much of a bonus depends on game mode and play style.
JLI already have the sniper gated behind muni and tech. Paths would probably need a buff to JLI performance if they are locked to one squad.
According to COH2 ability guide For the Fatherland gives -35% received accuracy. That is amazing, give that to USF/SOVIETS and blobs of death would ensue. For the fatherland doesn't feel as strong as it should since JLI/Obers have the same weakness of small squad size vs late game explosives so you might as well save the muni for Sector Assault.
I am not sure how Sector Assault compares to UKF planes but its strength comes from the overall situation caused by the rest of the commander. Someone correct me if I am wrong but no other faction gets elite inf/howitzer/loiter/HT as part of a line up in a match.
JLI have great camo so they can be used to spot for the planes. Howitzers can punish blobs, emplacements, base sector and the Loiter can be used defensively if you are caught out of position or offensively to break enemy lines. Stock KT along with spearhead mode is probably the strongest heavy tank in the game.
