And talking about patchs and fixes, why the EPBV 90 hasn't its autocannon and fight with a ridiculous MG? It's not a light autocannon close to M2 Browning stats, its a "huge" Bofors L/70 to ignore it...

Ah, that old chestnut: That's not a real autocannon, that's a broomstick painted black fake autocannon designed to fool the enemy into thinking that you're a perfectly normal Strf 9040 and no more worthy of targeting than any of the others on the field even though you are a rare, expensive and important Recon vehicle or CV (StriPBV 90 has the same thing). Quite a common trick but the only other vehicle I can think of that makes use of it is the Pereh, on which it's useless because the giant missile-box is modelled sticking out of the top so it can't fool players looking at the silhouettes. It works so well that when the Scandi DLC first came out Eugen also mistook it for a real autocannon.

Pro tip: The EPBV and StriPBV have whip aerials out the top so you can tell the silhouettes apart from the 9040 if you absolutely have to.

IIRC, someone said that IRL, Command versions of the CV9040 don't have the fake barrels at all. On a side note, another vehicle I can name with fake weapons is the M981 FIST-V, though that's not in Wargame.

Are you implying gunners can load full sized tank guns at anything faster than 10 RPM? Impossible!
