Since the rocket T-60 came, i find the it useless, even though if the T-60 is destroyed its a fragile addition to the rocket artillery even though I personally think with its weak armor the price is too high."When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."

The Katiusha was an iconic weapon of the war, I feel it needs some more love
However I'm not sure how it could be done, it might be hard to do now after the new units have come.
Astounding lack of comparison in this thread.
Lets compare the other rocket artillery shall we?
USA: Calliope, 60 114m rockets, 1400 pts
German: Panzerwerfer, 10 150mm rockets, 1250 pts
Commonwealth: Land Mattress, 32 76mm rockets, 1300 pts
Soviet Union: Katyusha, 16 132mm rockets, 1250 pts
Japan: Ha-To, 1 300mm rocket, 1300pts
All have same 200 range. Armour not considered as most are light and with good range, and if being shot at by something which isn't other artillery, something has gone wrong. With the above stats in view, the Katyusha is at the right price indeed.Infantry guide: http://digitalmindsoft.eu/forums/sho...-your-Infantry

Panzerwerfer has similiar reliability problems, but atleast it's lightly armoured & tracked. Katjusha is furthermore hampered by the truck-chassis.
Btw, calibre isn't the most important factor when it comes to rocket effectiveness.I lost my manhood years ago. I don't really know what keeps me going anymore.
Anyway, since there seem to be no fixes done to:
- more than poor pathfinding,
- no armor coupled with a high profile, resulting in extended visibility and thus vulnerability at even greatest ranges to HE shells and artillery fire, not to mention AP grenades and mere bullets, fired by anything but pistols at distances of up to 50 meters and even farther,
- replenishing issues, when five out of ten times you have to do transfer of rockets from an ammo truck to a Katiusha virtually by hand,
and on top of all that it is by all means a weapon of chance...
Well, maybe it's time to take a different approach, and decrease the price of it significantly?

Decreasing the cost would be nice in my opinion and bring it more inline with its historical profile as a low cost artillery piece.
Hasn't it change since the patch ?. Besides the range. The explosion don't do much harm now.
