So is this overpowered enough for you?

I think this is the modern version of the rocket's red glare

At least for you tank drivers out there (including myself) an SPG can only fire one at a time huh?

If this was in game, no way in hell would it be, but if it was, the only thing to describe it would be...

one minute, :Smile_harp::Smile-playing: the next? :blink::o:arta::arta::arta::Smile-izmena:

@OG, seen it before and liked it, this is 100 times more accurate/powerful but that was cool to see it again.

WAHHHH THAT'S OP. Fires rockets not shells at such a fast rpm. ZOMG.

Reload would be like, 10 mins for 40 packs of non-stop rockets.

Damage, would be like over 9000, more than enough to eliminate a Maus in one hit XD

Ah, rocket spam, althoug the M270 is probably the least "spammy" of them, and the Russian ones the most.

I'm particularly interested in that one mounted on the T-72. The "heavy flamethrower" the Russians have.

I'm phoning gods tech support right now, this stuff is WAAAAY too OP. Nerf this now! Hopefully it will be fixed in life v1.2

But to be serious, the only thing I think that is bad about these types of vehicles is that they practically scream "over here, I am over here, please blow me up" with that giant smoke trail and cloud they make... I know it's a desert but the cloud HAS to be big no matter where it is, right? Looks kind of like it needs some serious anti-air protection to hide from helicopters eh? Still, awesome machines none the less.

It'd actually be pretty cool to see something like the Katyusha (sp?), Calliope, etc in game as premium SPGs... (even if they aren't, technically speaking, self-propelled guns at all.)  Unfortunately, the developers have already stated that they will not be including rockets in the game..

Probably because it'd be ridiculously OP, since you could just fire five shots in a second and ruin whatever has the misfortune of being under your reticle...

You're probably thing of the MIM-104 Patriot, a different weapon mounted on different chassis.  The M270 is a stricly (AFAIK) surface-to-surface platform, while the Patriot is a SAM launcher.  In Iraq I, it was pressed into service as an interceptor missile, performed exceptionally well, and modern upgrades focus on that role.
