When eventually we get the JF-17 and the F-16 it'll potentially make things easier and whilst the server does try and follow a scenario you want to encourage people to fly on both sides. Putting all the new aircraft on blue team would create a horrible server where everyone just plays blue. I agree it would be the most realistic as there are a lot of blue aircraft coming, it just wouldn't make for an entertaining environment.

Also I agree the P51s floating around is odd but I guess its that or give both sides the Huey and MI8 as not everyone has both, or are capable of flying both.
Moving the M2000 to Red only has done wonders for the balance. It is a very popular aircraft (for good reason) and will draw people to one side or another, and has.

I agree that moving the M2000C to red only was a good choice. What I'm saying is having the Hornet blue only without having an equally popular aircraft on red would re upset the balance.

Maybe F-18 on one side and M2000 plus A-10C on the other?

better the F-18 in both sides, at least untill the JF-17. M2000 is mainly an interceptor after all with meager AG capabilities, and still weakly armed for its main role


... on other note... what's with the Viggens and Harriers in FARPS? i know they were designed with that in mind, at least in part, but at least give them a chance to rearm

In two weeks when the Hornet launches, it will not be any better than the M2000 at anything. It is slower, uses more fuel and has worse Fox 1 missiles and has the same ground strike abilities as the M2000. We're gonna be bug swatting on RED, all day long

I know, but it will be just temporary, when updates begin to come F-18 will get capabilities well boosted, while M2000 still mainly an interceptor
