The LAAD Stinger is an anti-aircraft team for the United States in the Wargame series, they first appear in Wargame: European Escalation, and as one of the best AA teams available in both games, form an indispensable part of the USA's air defence.

HistoryEdit

OverviewEdit

European EscalationEdit

AirLand BattleEdit

The Stinger is certainly one of the best MANPADs available in the game with high accuracy and high HE power, it's NATO counterparts in the British LAAD Javelin and the Swedish RBS 70 and RBS 90 while comparable in terms of accuracy and HE power, lack the Stinger's Fire & Forget (F&F) trait, forcing the target to remain within visual contact and for the team to remain exposed when firing (although it should be noted that both the RBS 70 and 90 are longer ranged than the Stinger). By contrast the Stinger's F&F trait allows the team to immediately fire on the target when it appears, and quickly move away to avoid retaliation while the missile guides itself.

It is a much more even comparison against its Soviet rivals the Igla and the Strela-3, the Stinger is just a point more accurate than both, and does a point more HE damage than the Strela-3. The main places where the Stinger is at a disadvantage are:

  • The Igla outranges the Stinger, besides the Stinger being more accurate both have similar stats.
  • The Strela-3 is only slightly less effective, yet unlike the Stinger it is massively available. It comes with Category B and C decks, allowing for a large bonus to the number that can be deployed, further increasing its base availability of 12 vs the Stinger's base availability of 8.
