The M727 I-HAWK is an Anti-Aircraft vehicle for the United States that first appeared in Wargame: AirLand Battle.



AirLand BattleEdit

The M727 I-HAWK is one of the radar guided SAM vehicles available to NATO, although on paper it has both incredible accuracy and a lot of firepower. It does have a large number of drawbacks compared to almost all of its peers.

Its main Soviet counterpart the 9K37 Buk has exactly one more missile (4 as opposed to 3) and can fire slightly faster (6 as opposed to 5) while also being twice as durable (10 strength as opposed to 5) and it costs only ten points more.

Its other Soviet counterpart the 9K33 Osa series (including the AK and AKM) are far cheaper than it is (20, 35 and 50 respectively compared to 60). While the former has less accuracy, it has far higher availability (starting at 12 compared to 6) and the latter two only sacrifice damage while having the same accuracy, all three have higher ammo counts (4,6,6 repectively) and are at 10 strength. The only issue being that the M727 has far greater range than any of the three.

Compared to its NATO counterparts the Tracked Rapier FSAMarder Roland 2AMX-30 Roland 3 and the NOAH respectively: 

  • Has better accuracy (12), is cheaper (50) with more ammo (8), less power (6)
  • Has better accuracy (13), is cheaper (55) with more ammo (10), less power (5)
  • Has better accuracy (13), same price, more ammo (10), less power (5)
  • Has better accuracy (12), more expensive (70), and similar stats since the NOAH is essentially an exported M727
  • Except for the NOAH, all have twice the durability at 10 while the M727 has 5.

The only real strengths of the M727 are its HE power (at HE8 few AA vehicles trump it, one of them being the 9K37 Buk-M1 with HE9), and its range, it outranges all its NATO counterparts except for the NOAH.

Also, like all radar equipped anti-aircraft vehicles in the game it is vulnerable to SEAD aircraft which wield very powerful anti-radiation missiles capable of destroying radar equipped vehicles like the M727 with a single hit.
