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.

The most logical AA is MANPADS, but if the game will have Attack Helicopters like AH-64 Apache, Mi-28N, Mi-24V we'll need an AA vehicle. The Iraqis btw had MT-LBs with a ZU-23-2 mounted on top which is an idea for the INS. Buk, Shilka or Pantsir-S have no place in RGF right now. Buk is useless on Squads maps, Shilka is really outdated, good for Militia or INS though, and Pantsir-S isnt that popular with the RGF right now, so Tunguska is best pick imo.

Meh i posted this just to get an idea of what the community would expect and it was pretty much what i thought. Manpads are indeed the way to go, but a hidden ZU23 would be most effective. It can't be traced by the helis Radar and if you get hit, you're done anyway.....no way you're agile enough to bank hard enough and speed away lol.

Well the m113 minigun thing (which is actually called the m163 vads) was decommissioned in the 80s when it was replaced by the m6 linebacker and the avenger. I think if the US gets any kind of armored mobile AA it would be that for sure, but in terms of realism, we'd be more likely to use the hmmwv variant. Oh wait we can't use the avenger now that the hmmwv was removed from the game.
