What do you think US and RU forces get for AA vehicles ?. It's confirmed that the insurgents are getting the ZU 23 and a ural version of it so they're set. But what about the 2 main forces ?. You can pick multiple choices 1 US and 1 RU vote.

I highly think M113 with minigun and Shilka....anything lock on probably comes in launcher version for infantry.

This depends heavily on the type of vehicles they are shooting down to balance the game which AA platform to use.

 

If one team is only fighting against attack helicopters, then MANPADS, or light technical mounted AA trucks is good enough.

IF one team is fighting against A-10's doing gun runs, then a shilka is probably a good platform to use and wouldn't be TOO OP.

If one team is fighting a pair of F-18 Hornets or F-16's or fast boys like the F-22, you might wanna bring the big boys to the party like a Russian Tunguska self propelled AA.

Wel jets are not gonna be a thing, with luck we might see battlechoppers like a super cobra or an apche, MI 24 super hind KA 50.
I personally voted m113 with minigun and Shilka. Might seem a bit OP, but if you're familiar with the choppers they come with AGM's and pods with dumb fires.

Just threw a poll with some AA vehicles, some of em OP for choppers but yea

The M113 with a minigun isn't actually in service. The M163 VADS was retired from active service in 1994.

 

The closest thing in active US service is the updated Avengers that removed the right-hand Stinger pod and replaced it with a side-mounted .50cal:

The US really doesn't put much stock in gun-based AA weaponry.

BUK is a MeRAD - don't think it fits into the Squad scale. The most logical variant for Russian faction is Tunguska, since Pantsir is an Air Force AD asset, not Land Forces.
