What USAriadna profile would you like to see?

37 posts in this topic

So I've been struggling with USAriadna for awhile but it has me thinking about what new units or profiles I wish USArf had.

A Foxtrot profile with Minelayer. I don't get why there are no USA units with Minelayer at all and it seems like the skill Foxtrots should have.

A Hardcase profile with FO. Maybe one with a Marksman or Sniper rifle. I feel like Hardcases are supposed to represent a huntsman and what better represents that than a hunting rifle.

And, of course, a manned TAG of some kind. A new US only TAG would be awesome. Call it the Ironside in reference to the 1st. or Spearhead in reference to the 3rd. Armored Divisions. or something similar. But regular access to the Anaconda would be okay too.

Any other thoughts on what you think USArf should or could have?

A Hardcase with a Ojotnik would be crazy fun. I'd see that over a sniper or marksman rifle. A Hardcase with Sensor, maybe minelayer sniffers instead of ambush camo, to help combat the Antipodes. You'd think that the army that is used to fight antipodes would be better at it.

A Ranger with D-charges.

A low tech, manned TAG would be great. You could give it a degrading profile, like the Blackjack.

An Unknown Ranger with Shock Immunity.

Minutemen with NWI.

Ojotnik would be cool as would NWI on the Unknown Ranger too.

Oh, I just remembered another one. Airborne profiles with FO and/or D Charges. Traditionally, forward observing and demolitions are something US Airborne have been assigned, ala Pathfinders and the 20th & 37th Engineer Battalions, since inception. Oh, maybe even make one an actual Engineer...

- A Maverick profile with mines.
- Blackjack Portable Autocannon 
- A Minuteman Paramedic
- Airborne with D-Charges loadout

And if it were up to me, all Marauders would have MSV1, but c'est la vie.

Usariadna seriously need some more "Anti-material" stuff... And a little boost for accomplishment of the classified.

D-CHARGES!. Hackers are a thing but the lack of d-charges in USARF has no excuse, the classified objectives end up being just annoying, and now the only way to deal with the new power pack without taking panoplies is a single Dozer (ava1) that has to cross the table (The T2 cc weapon is not antimaterial). The airborne seem a good option for a profile with d-charges to compensate the lack of mimetism compared to the other paratroopers.

Thats the only thing i ask for. i mean yeah a minuteman paramedic could be awesome and help them to be more attractive compared to marauders (or at least not so risky to field) But in general everything seems fine except minor details like some costs or profiles (maverick molotok, unknown ranger)

With the day dreaming mode on, I could ask for a synchronized land drone, or just anything mechanized with current tech.

Have you looked at the pouches that every single Minuteman has on them?

 

They all have first aid/paramedic pouches. Not even joking.

 

With that out of the way...

Marauder with X-Visor and AP Marksman Rifle

Airborne with Marksman Rifle and AP Mines

Grunt with Marksman Rifle and AP Mines

Addition of Sapper to the Blackjack profiles.

Autocannon Blackjack.

Traktor Mul with Autocannon or AP HMG.

Blackjack profile with G: Sync Traktor Mul

Blackjack, Marauder, and Minutemen characters.

Considering balance:

Marauders, grunts and black jacks are fine.

The airborne doesn't need marksman rifles or mines, don't expect mines for ariadna paratroopers.

Traktor muls need some kind of rework, additionally a new more direct action profile could be fun, but don't expect anything that can overlap other units with those kind of weapons. (Even with that is not going to happen soon).

 

@Talon65 Foxtrots are good at being cheap, they don't need minelayer because you can take hardcases, also a new minelayer profile for Ariadna is a bad idea, we have enough with 2 chesaurs minelayers.

Why FO hard case? you have foxtrots for that.

there is a strong christian fanatism in the USAriadna fluff, why not some religious troop warband with cheap weapon (light shotgun, rifle, chain rifle) to represent rednecks fanatics ? Maybe with inferior infiltration.

For what it's worth, everything that has T2 ammo is Anti-materiel.

That's called Desperadoes.

 

Also, no. There's seemingly some towns where that comes into play but it's not a Sectorial defining feature.

desperadoes are on bike, I was thinking something more "pitchfork mob" like : no smoke grenade, irregular, crapy weapon.

So you want worse-Galwegians?  That makes no sense to me and doesn't fit at all into the USARF's "generally slow but heavily armed and armored" aesthetic.

 

In other news, I'm all for the TAG (even if it's permanent Anaconda access) and autocannon-Blackjack ideas.

This is actually CB getting something right for once. 

Every soldier carries a first aid kit, if they are injured the medic will use the soldier's aid kit first, thereby spreading the medical supplies around the section and reducing the weight carried by the medic. 

The question should be why don't all USARF/Ariadna models have first aid kits? 

Side note: In Her Majesty's Armed Forces it is frowned upon to replace your first aid kit with two bags of Haribo, even if the pouch is exactly the right size!

My #1 wish-list item: *all* Ariadnan HI gets Shock Immunity and NWI. Full-stop.

[If we're not allowed 2W then can we at least get 1.75W?]

I'd settle for our HI not being immobilised by E/M ammo!

Well wolfes do not suffer from hacking and E/M nor any other kind of special ammo which is good for them! Quite nice for 2W models

 

Heck Ariadna has even unhackable 3W,  *unaffected by E/M HI! ;P

 

*no imm

Apart from Stun, T2, Viral, Monofiliment, Adhesive and E/M (E/M is exotic), yeah, the wolves are kind of cool, but they don't help a minuteman link. They could have just been badass LI like the Unknown Ranger, rather than having to worry about getting shut down by E/M, not getting any form of extra wound, and not getting any extra armor.

Honestly, I just want to swap the AP rifle minuteman profile for a T2 version. Right now I have no reason to ever take Minutemen over marauders. Move+shoot is same speed, Molotok isn't much worse than AP HMG with better range bands given forward deployment, and dogged on the same armor, all while being fewer points-- with a Haris profile! Gimme me a reason to use Minutemen CB, because I love the minis' Iraq aesthetic. T2 profile and Haris would probably do it-- it would certainly force some competition.

The only T2 in faction is blackjack-- and T2 sniper is good, but I want a profile that can suppress-- really rams home the faction theme of 'i've hunkered down in your midfield, now move me'

Which is still tons better as they dont turn into statue after being hit by E/M, have chance of surviving failed wound against T2 (Kazak wolfs), and don't care a shit about hacking. Quite a few less vulnurelabilities than a standard 2W HI I would say....

(not to mention that sole T2 ammo only exists in Ariadna atm. Adhesive is also very common mainly among Ariadna thoug not unique).

Ad "HI":
Well limitations, same as PanO can't do smoke trick and pays like everyone for every single piece of MSV2+.

Let me know when these wolves with shotguns and chain rifles can form link teams in USAr to replace guys with HMGs, sniper rifles and specialists and we'll be all set then.
