Yeah, I was just being dumb...
It’s actually pretty simple to use, just produce the one you want, gather them in a stack and just send them to Attack enemy troops.
Ofc Kalrakh would disagree that using helicopters are more complicated than that, but anybody can use aerial and naval troops and see at least a measure of success, especially in public games where the overall level of skill is lower than alliance games and etc.
Thanks. What type of air and naval units do you suggest for each doctrine? (I usually only play Flashpoint maps, not sure if that will make a difference :/)
Western: Air Superiority Fighter (Attack Helicopter once enough resources)
European: Strike Fighter
Eastern: Helicopter Gunship (Air Superiority Fighter up to your preference)
As for naval, it's really your choice between Frigate and Destroyer. Personally I switch between those two depending on size of country (for no real reason!) but your preference decides really
Cruisers are also good for very strong ship damage
Ok. In a new game I'm playing (Flashpoint map, USA country), I am planning to max out naval infantry, main battle tanks, and maybe attack helicopters? I have a question though, what is the point of air superiority fighters? Everyone in this map is a new player, other than one person, who is basically already destroyed. I doubt they will research & mobilize air anyways.
Generally in WW3 players are more experienced. In Flashpoint however, you don't have to build ASF. Do keep an eye out for players building ASF however.
ASF is helpful in maintaining aerial domination, while also functioning as weak ground attack fighters in a pinch.
BTW Naval Infantry is better at offense while Motorized Infantry is better at defense.
Western Doctrine Armored Fighting Vehicle is also superior to their MBTs imo
Yeah. I just can't seem to stick to a game. I'm always itching for that end game button to show up after day 20. That's why I don't do WW3 much... And I don't use Motorized Infantry, ever. I used Naval and Mechanized usually... And I will keep in mind the AFV's are better than MBT's in Western Doctrine.
