such is unknown at this point.

i do hope that there will be amphib units or bridging units, as well as ability to create fighting positions and obstacles.

Yes, same I like the idea of units being able to dig in to positions, boosting defensive stats, whilst in that cover

From what I see in the database, Eugen has changed some Optics/Stabilizer values. Soviet tanks have now somewhat equal optics/stabilizers to the NATO ones.

I must admit I can't see anything myself. Everything is pretty much how I remember it on the Pact tanks I used the most.

I think they tweaked some NATO units, I remember that Leopard 2A4 had "very good" optics or something.

The only NATO MBT I see with "Very Good" stabilizer is Challenger 1.

Any chance we will be seeing any if not all, of the BTR-D variants?

Only one tank with "Good" stabilizer for Warsaw, many more on the NATO side with one "Very Good" and one "Exceptional". Still better.

To be honest though, Pact tanks often want to be still when fighting anyway due to the ATGMs mounted upon most of the models. For the ATGM to fire you need to sit still for ~10-15s (depends on vet) then sit still until it hits it's target (~2-3s). Without ATGMs NATO tanks are much more suited to run-and-gun, especially seeing as they need to be on the move to break the LoS/range of the Pact ATGMs!
