MANPADS

with No Comments
< Back
– These special soldiers carry an air to air missiles system.
– The lock on procedure will be stopped if the targeted helicopter fires flares. The soldier needs at least six seconds to lock on again.
– If there are multiple MANPADS close together (30 meters) they form a team and make clear that they don’t shoot at the same time.
– They have three missiles with them. If they are all fired they disappear.
– Pilots get a warning if a missile is incoming

Strategies

MANPADS spam (by Jasper)

Place MANPADS to defend your bases and to disturb the hostile team.

  • I place two or three MANPADS at one spot.
  • I spread them in all directions of my helo so it’s difficult to hit them.
  • Either I place them on the front of allied bases to disturb approaching hostile or
  • I place them far behind enemy lines.

How to deal with MANPADS spam (by Jasper)

  • Report areas with MANPADS.
  • Fly low and fast.
  • Preflare if you expect to enter dangerous areas.
  • [scouts] Search the areas (fly low), spot the MANPADS for ground forces and door gunners and destroy the MANPADS.
