Re: Broken Stuff that Needs Fixing ASAP

The rule is pretty simple, 30mm penetration is 1 AP. If you have a round piercing 300mm, it's 10 AP. The M60A1 has 11AP and that's using either the M392A2 or M728 which are around 225mm-250mm. M60A3 and M1 have 13 AP and they both use the M735 which is 300mm. XanderTuron wrote: The armour and AP on...

Re: Broken Stuff that Needs Fixing ASAP

Welp, looks like I was partially wrong, there was no rule for 1981-1985 guns: They obviously made a few exceptions to the rule with the Magach and Finnish T-55s. Israel did have the M-426/DM-63 but it's post-1991 (Leo 1A5 NO2 uses this round). For instance at 2000m: - the 1982 AMX 30B2 had the OFL ...

Re: West-Germany (or hoping without hope)

No you wouldn't, you'd have a reasonably good MiG-29 9.13S with 4x R-77 and 2x R-73 and you'd have a pair of pointless cluster bombers, the first a 9.12 with 4x RBK-500s and 2x R-60M, the second a 9.13 with 4x RBK-500 and 2x R-73. The F-16 didn't use the Sparrow until the late 80s when the ADF vari...

Re: West-Germany (or hoping without hope)

Not that I wouldn't like to see the T-64 series (and even the T-80s) get more properly modeled, but do you have the numbers so that we can better understand the comparison?


The T-64A had an steel/aluminium cast turret which BTVT estimated at around 410mm vs KE, the glacis is 335mm.

Re: West-Germany (or hoping without hope)

Keiler in no way deserves 13 FAV it was worse armored that T-64A, which is 11. I think it goes without saying the T-64A should also have 13-14 FAV but it's one of those units that never gets a mention nowadays. Why the hell should later types like Su-27PU be dropped if we have Eurofighter and Rafal...

Re: No C-300 ?

F-14 radar modes - Pulse-Doppler Search (PDS): This mode is for basic long range detection, and is the maximum range mode of the unit. The infor­mation is displayed on the Detailed Data Display (DDD) as raw radar data in azimuth, elevation and range-rate (rate of closure). This mode does not provide...

Re: No C-300 ?

Which aint apply to T-62 at all.


The autoloader patch killed Soviet tanks better than TOW-2 aimed right at the turret ring.

Re: No C-300 ?

I'd argue that its a fair bit more effective in RD now. Especially since autoloaders and generally acceptable tank accuracy made its appearance. I'd say the opposite given the fact T-72Bs have 50% accuracy across the board compared to 60/65% for nearly all Blufor tanks - Leo 2A0 and A1 had 35% in E...

Re: On T-72M2 Moderna and its FCS.

PRP-4 with 1PN59 since 1984, PRP-4M with 1PN71 since 1988. T-80UM with Agava-2 was planned to be launched serial in 1990 at Omsk plant. Also on Tu-142M from whenever those were built (late 70s), IR linescan on recon jets, cameras and real-time imaging on Oko and Yantar satellites. The ability to se...
