Is this the first time we've seen the full stats for the two Fledermaus variants? I don't recall seeing them previously, at any rate.
They sure seem cheap compared to the SSU ground attack chopper. Faster movement, same health, roughly equivalent weaponry, air superiority, and…20 points cheaper?!
Wow, they sure seem to really put a premium on the Hover skill, don't they?
Don't even get me started Krieg…
I really don't know what FFG or Dust Models was thinking when they came up with the points for the aircraft. It boggles my mind that the Fledermaus is faster, has the same armor, same hit points, comparable armament, and air superiority, yet comes in a whole 20 points cheaper than the attack helicopters…WTF?!
I'm trying not to be a biased SSU player, but it really is unfair. One of the arguments I have heard is that the Striker variant can beat a Fledermaus head-to-head…but that is not a viable argument! The Fledermaus is arguably better than any of the helicopters because of that speed, it can quickly get into the fray and start it's aerial strikes, whereas the helicopters are relatively slow.
Can someone please enlighten me on why the helicopters are so expensive compared to the Axis jets? I feel like the SSU were the test dummys for the aircraft, and they've basically made them unplayable because of how overcosted they are. Transports are way overcosted and the ground helicopters are equally bad.
