FatalError=VX9= Padre..if you think you can beat me in a MIg when I'm flying an F4,feel free to join our server and try.
I thnk he was generalizing the strengths/weakness of each individual aircraft, not as a challenge. Also, there is a server-side option to have the towers respawn. Yes... Bombing them might help your team for a while, but you're not SOL if your towers are blown up in the first min or 2 of the map. At least it makes it somewhat more of a fair fight.

As Foxtrot said I was just generalizing... Honestly, statistics point to the MIG as the more superior aircraft from the game, but I know it's all about the pilot. Those quotes I have about the Phantom and Corsair come straight from the official EA BFV site, so that's what the creators think about the aircraft in question. Besides - As indicated by my avatar I'm with artillery. Artillery doesn't fly. If I really wanted to complain about something that matters to me it's about smacktards that can't use the binoculars, and bigger smacktards that just don't use them even though every damned kit has them.
they put the anti aircraft to right next to the tower so u cant ever portect it that well

... which is why I said they should have made the Quad 50 mobile. Even if they threw it on the back of a Deuce And A Half... isn't there one of those on Saigon 1968? Why couldn't they throw more of them on other maps? Ah well - server-side mods will fix that I'm sure.
runteldatDude just the F-4 can't defend the tower
Like I said, it takes a good, coordinated effort on the part of the US team so that they can get out of the airfield and start taking points on foot. I don't mean just one engineer guarding the tower. Nor do I mean just one pilot in an F-4. A couple of guys absolutely need to hang out and do their best to defend the things until you can get hit the far shores with ground troops. If your team isn't doing that, then they aren't doing a good job at playing as a team. Defense is key early on in the map. OR take the fight to them and blast their towers. The best strategy would be to implement both plans of action, but it sounds like you've been hexed with playing with poor players. Also, try this: play as the NVA on that map, hop into a MiG and try and take out the US towers. It isn't as easy as you'd think if the US team is worth its salt.
Fair enough Padre, I'll buy that.
Ender Wiggin Nice to see you here again, Beef! I've been away from this for a while as well.
Good to see ya man! :beer:
I'll tell ya, a good Gaybra pilot can protect the towers just fine, while the other guys are taking out the tower. Then go for the throat.
I gotta get back in this game soon.... like now All this talk about Migs not being able to shoot down F4's.... Bring em on ;) :beer:
I also have been away from these forums for awhile now. i have been spending most of my time, with the Tourney that I am involved in. I am 2nd in command of the NVA side, and I have seen some amazing stuff. our pilots are very good. 1 Mig-17 can have all 3 U.S. towers down in 1 minute, 45 seconds. It got so bad last campaign, the U.S. side complained, and the map was taken out of the tourney due to "balance" issues. Our map/mod team worked on the map, and has made all towers undestructable. Which made little difference. We still own them. LOL. Actually mainly because our pilots are better then theirs. And the migs are a bit better too. F-4 Poo!!!! LOL. And as far as the "Gaybra" goes Beefy, the only chopper that we have that has a hard time taking out the Cobra, is the Cargo M-i8. But not totally impossible. just get a couple of guys to hop in the back seats with either an RPD, or SA-7. Either way, towers, destructable, or indestructable, I enjoy the map all the same. Gunny.

Even better, if they allowed you to hitch up the quad to a MUTT like its a Huey. drive it around, park it, fire!
