Re: T-72 line authenticity errors in W:RD

The notable difference could be export vs domestic steel for Soviet or WARPAC foundries, however as far as european T-72s were concerned they were manufactured to one standard (up to a point). I believe that was noted in the US comparative tests of Iraqi and East-German T-72Ms.

Re: T-72 line authenticity errors in W:RD

T-72B obr. 89. Ideally, since so many units are now running in the 90's, this should be remade into T-72B obr. 90 to include DVE-BS weather sensor and thus improved accuracy. T-72BU I've put this tank forwards with this naming convention back at RDs inception. However, looking at how Soviet naming ...

Re: Israel Armor Discussion and addition to Red Dragon

http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/war/chechnya1.htm The Chechnya Conflict, certainly, the lost T-80UMs was more of a fault of poor planning and a disorganized military after the collaprse of the USSR, and other weapons besides the RPG-7V were likely used, but one exploit that the Rebels ...

Re: Yugoslavia in Red Dragon

Russian manual says 500m against stationary vehicles although I would have to dig up user BTR to find those again. The engagement distance is a combination of sight and round used. Engagement distance =/= max range: http://i.imgur.com/i4F1TEY.png The row above one highlighted is the range of direct...

Re: T-80UM armor buff: from a realistic standpoint

Ok, let's change the approch. Explain to me how the ussr/sovkor tank line should be balanced. :) Argument to balance there. Not really relevant to the fact that advocating nerfs to whatever tanks "because first generation era" is wrong as a rule and not really relevant to this discussion ...

Why? In four cases out of six mentioned above, superior KE protection is warranted by improved composite armor arrays and not because of ERA.

No, no be my guests. If the fact that fist generation, add-on ERA is mostly useful vs CE is such a revelation to you, I am eager to see what you will write.

About Kontakt-5 resistance to 30mm shells, it's written on the institute's site that developed that ERA (NIIStali): http://www.niistali.ru/security/armor/builtincontakt?start=1 Не детонирует при попадании пуль 7,62 мм и 12,7 мм, осколков и 30-мм снарядов в элемент ДЗ.

Re: T-80UM armor buff: from a realistic standpoint

This is more of a "what if" argument. Not a "what if" scenario at all. All serial production T-80UD's (post 87 at least) were fitted with ceramic turret inlays by default so it is only natural to assume late production T-80U's and newer models such as T-80UM's would receive them...
