Has anyone wondered about how good the 222 scout cars are?
Well, I have.
And after about 20 comp stomps of using nothing but scout cars, I have come to 2 conclusions
1- Never use a Scout Car against an IS-2 upfront, NEVER
, only tears, depression, and a loss of 15 fuel will happen.
2- 222's are too stronk against planes
How did I realize this? well, The compstomps were 4v4 all hard AI (sorry, im too diaper baby to do Expert AI) so there were plenty of soviet planes buzzin around, lookin for them AT Gun thighs.
But for some reason, my 222 Scout cars usually had 3-10 Vehicle kills, and that is how I lreaned the hard way the Scout cars are NOT Tank Destroyers
, trust me, Im saving you a ton of headaches with that advice.
Around the 3rd or 4th stomp of testing, I then realized that scout cars counter planes harder than any of the OKW AA stuff, which is sad because they usually cost 4x more fuel on average...
At first I thought it was super RNG, but 18 rounds in a row, with my scout cars consistently getting vehicle kills for 20 matches in a row, I decided to build one 1 Scout car, upgrade it with the 20mm gun and spotting scope, and just let it AFK in my HQ and stare at it.
The always ever so intelligent Hard USF AI decided to throw a P47 Rocket Strike at the poor thing...
Literally, in 5 shots, BOTH planes got shot down by the scout car, then proceeded to crash into a giant blob of racktenwerfers.
Like about 12 allied planes were divebombing flacktrucks and ostwinds and all of them were uninjured. but when it came to the 15 fuel scout car, the the tinking vehicle manage to snipe plane after plane after plane in the HQ sector, and ended up getting a total of 9 vehicle kills.
Sadly, through a variety of glitches and computer stuff, I no longer hold the replays of such eventful encounters, But I do have an Artist rendering of the Plane Massacre of 1943... just gruesome photos should not be shown in public, But here it is:
OH MY, THE HUMANITY, so much destruction and rage.
Although I do have a problem with how efficient it is, this is what bothers me the most
And Ostwind, 120 muni AA halftrack, the OKW field defences and T4 building and flack halftrack Are outmatched in the AA department by a 15 fuel, T2 Scout Car.
Sure I may have the best RNG 20 compstomps in a row, So I need some 3rd party proof that the 22 is the Stronkest AA in the game.
