Anyone else feel that the Allies suck at anti air? to the point where perhaps it's a tad unfair… Am I crazy?

 For now, yeah.  Though I've been able to hold my own with Grim Reapers and Wildfires

I may have to do the same. I just ordered antother grim reaper unit and will either pick up a wildfire or a rattler to help my cause.

I use the current AA DT tanks and then some halftracks with the quad 50's so i dont feel thats a bad thing. I would like some Allied aircraft soon.

Don't forget the Rattler! That thing is good against air!

 You're crazy if you think the allies have been shafted in any way, they are the strongest army in the current meta. To say an army that has grim reapers as a core infantry unit, wildfires, and rattlers to support them is bad at anti-air is just wrong.

Well, I'm glad that I am probably wrong about the allies having no anti air. I don't play in tournaments so I'm not sure about this meta game stuff. I only have one grim reaper unit at the moment with none of the anti air walkers you have mentioned. I will probably pick up some additional grim reapers today as well as a wildfire.

LOL, you complain about Allied AA power but that's because you don't actually have any of the models :D

 I must say i don't get the whole "We need AA" that is popular these days. But that's prolly i haven't yet met any strike choppers;)

 I thought this thread was about the disparity in announced units. We know about the axis heavy transport walker and jet planes, but no vehicles whatsoever for the allies yet.

 I have to throw my hat into the ring….  Axis and SSU get more vehicles and they throw us what more Infantry…  I mean when they start to release the Japan stuff for the Axis then, by all means, throw the Marines our way, until then lets see an even distribution regarding vehicles….   Down the pipe even the Axis get aircraft, just drop the Allies line instead of making it less and less competitive…

I feel the Allies are lacking a middle ground vehicle. The Axis forces have the Wotan and the Flamm-Luther, the SSU hordes have the Fury of Ivan (or whatever it's called nowadays), while the Allied forces have… nothing.

This sore spot  is all the more painful as the Allies are right now the only side without a known flying vehicle, and we know that the Axis will get those nice heavy troop transports…

Yeah, I'd love to see an allied medium-heavy walker.
