T-80's: So Good or No Good?


Recommended Posts

Okay, with 6 posts in a week, this might be the most active Team Yankee forum on the net!  I'd thought I'd throw a question to the group:

How do you feel about T-80's?  You get a Nato-ish tank, but are paying Nato prices, and still only 1 shot from the main gun.

You can even pay MORE points, but you get an actually decent skill rating, and are hit on 4's!

 

What say you?

To help offset the points of the T80s you have to go cheaper and more specific on your support options. To build this list I would start with a more specific support strategy.  

example:   cheapest arty option (carnations) + cheapest AA option (gaskins) + cheapest recon (brdm2) + maybe a cheap infantry option

This would be my preferred minimum. Then, with the points left over, see what I can do with the T80 tanks. And hopefully with a few points leftover to improve the support options.

Yes, this may/will change your play style. Maybe play it closer to a nato style ???

Hmmmm.  So 11 points for carnations and observer, 1 point for gaskin, a platoon of BMP-1's is about 6 points.  Leaves room for about 9 T-80s.

It may work, but it is still only 9 shots a turn with the same gun a T-72 or T-64 has.

Also!  Do you folks like Soviet artillery?  The 5+ to range in is a pain, it it for anti- infantry work?  Milan spam?
