Re: Awaiting arrival of new MBTs

Why do people insist on putting anti-mine/IED armor on everything these days? It's not going to be in places where it'll be hit like that anyway. The nature of foreseeable battlefield for most US systems does not diverge much from what they've seen in the past 15 years. As such IED's are the main t...

Re: Awaiting arrival of new MBTs

According to Mark Signorelli, “M109A7 put a new chassis under the A6 turret, with a few upgrades to the turret, and effectively in two steps the Army built a new howitzer" as of Jan 2016. So I think it will largely be the same as A6 with no mechanical loader. In terms of costs, BAE got 245.3 mi...

Re: Panzermadel

We can discuss about dating underaged tanks but we can't talk about 404. :ugeek: http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/547555623379412677/057C9497A312521511E59FBAFFD3C62500579F4D/?interpolation=lanczos-none&output-format=jpeg&output-quality=95&fit=inside|637:358&composite-to...

Re: Panzermadel

I died a lot inside. This game is offensive to actual tanks by portraying them all as generic skinny ♥♥♥♥♥es. The only thing remotely tanky about any of the characters is that the "Panzers" have blond hair, blue eyes. (And then you go ahead and make the Tiger (One of the largest tanks ever...

Re: Awaiting arrival of new MBTs

A question Can a Mi-8 or Mi-6 carry it with a fire squad? A Mi-6? What is this, the 70's? :lol: A Mi-26T/T2 can definitely carry a squad + an Uran-9, or two Uran-9 vehicles by weight and capacity but these helicopters aren't exactly abundant or cheap enough to consider their application with such s...

Re: Awaiting arrival of new MBTs

Such a subtle topic switch when you've been cornered. Suave. It's been mentioned that Uran can use other Uran units to boost signal, not a bad decision for redundancy. Also, as video has shown, it is a proper UGV with at least navigational abilities (going to a coordinate/move around an obstacl...

Re: Awaiting arrival of new MBTs

Why not? BMD-4 is 13+ tons. Uran-9 surely fits the weight requirement for air transport, but it can't transport troops, cannot swim and does not have the array of BMD-4(M) weaponry. With a limited amount of transport planes available, it doesn't make logistical sense to take a UGV over a proper IFV...

Re: Awaiting arrival of new MBTs

Damn that thing is tiny! Not tiny enough to be a force supplement for the airbourne, it weights just around 10+ tons. It also doesn't look like it can swim, so its recon abilities are limited even beyond CnC link of 3km. It also can't keep up with recon brigade elements since it is not fast enough....

Re: BTR Visits tanks, and AT -Type-13B-

I was wondering what the point of including them in the game would be if I tried to make their armor values "authentic". I guess they'd be cheaper copies of the 62M's, with less armor. Which would be odd, considering their latter introduction date. (Things don't normally get less effectiv...

Re: BTR Visits tanks, and AT -Type-13B-

In any case the tables are no longer accurate for some tanks, so take it with a grain of salt. I'm too lazy to incorporate all of that into a system as "abstract" as wargame's.
