Quote from: JJ252 on 11 June 2022, 08:15:21 PMLooking at the film footage coming from the Ukraine, evading incoming ATGW doesn't appear to happen very often. Is this rule too optimistic?I appreciate the Ukrainian's only release film footage that suits there needs.
QuoteMark the way it's written ATM a MACLOS missile can be evaded on 5 or below, so there is a 1 in 6 chance of hitting and 5/6ths chance of evading. Seems a tad excecessive
Quote from: flamingpig0 on 13 June 2022, 08:46:19 AMIf I am reading the rules right the MACLOs missile it hits would only suppress on a further 6 - id does seem a little useless.
QuoteYou suppress on an under to hit factor - so you suppress on a 1-5 roll

Quote from: Gwydion on 13 June 2022, 12:11:54 PMIs that an automatic miss?
Quote from: Smartbomb on 13 June 2022, 03:04:02 PMYes, I think so. And I think the original cover is the evade stat you use. That said regarding the MCLOS discussion: there is a whole section in errata or the army list threads about how useless MCLOS weapons were. They have something like a 10% hit ratio.
Quote from: Smartbomb on 13 June 2022, 03:04:02 PMGiven how they are only on lists as very early ATGMs in a time when most AT weapons are still guns, I don't think the stats are overly harsh from a realism standpoint.
Quote from: Gwydion on 13 June 2022, 04:22:47 PMOh, I agree. They appear to have been almost useless in the Yom Kippur war. No quibbles with them being 'sub optimal'. I was just wondering because an earlier poster had suggested there remained a 1 in 6 chance of a hit if the target evaded and I didn't read it like that.
