It's within timefrime and completely indigenous.

Unless 95 is the name of some sort of component?

It is not the date that I was refering, but the BWP was indeed Eastern block, while "what they added in 1995" on the 95 variant was from Western technology.

That was a pun, but obviously a bad one ... :cry:

Please note Übergangsvariante is a term used by historians, the NVA did not use it, and much less its tankers who barely made a difference between M and M1...

- Übergangsvariante 1:
A T-72 with laser range finder, skirts for the tracks, better engine and more ammo; an import from the USSR 1981
- Übergangsvariante 2:
A T-72M with additional armour on the glacis; an import from Poland 1986


The T-72s were continually upgraded, so even these two auxilliary terms don't help much. The T-72M1 from 1988 had slightly improved hydraulics, the T-72M1 from 1989 had a better radio etc.

The T-72S which the NVA planned to get would have a domestic FCS and TIS. Of course, by the end of 1989, these plans had to be aborted, like the whole T-72 upgrade and import programme.



Thanks for clearing this up flieger. Now can we re-roll the t72M into one of them? :lol:

Price? :lol: Svirs are expensive.


The DDR may come to the same conclusion. ;)


Mah god. T55 upgrades and t72M1Vs (or svir-less tanks). What madness is this. :lol:

This upgraded T-55 will be probably Czechoslovakian (there was a picture of cool-looking T-55 with DYNA ERA around here somewhere). And IIRC E-Germans were modernizing their T-55A fleet to T-55AM2(P)B standard when anschluss happened, I doubt that they were planning to go any further.

Most likely, yes. It'll be the t-55 DYNA. But I can pray for a T-55 Meridia command tank as well (rerolling the current polish t55).

A t55 AMV isn't terribly far off for DDR, and would of been the next logical upgrade afterwards. ( "Slap ERA kontakt - 1 bricks onto it!" ). Potentially an am5 ( "Slap ERA Kotakt -5 bricks and a new stabilizer onto it!") but both of these are far more unlikely. As badly as I want to see the t55am5 represented in the game, I doubt it :(

I wonder if we're going to get some cool new infantry icons for East Germany to differentiate them from the old ones?

I'd like to see the brighter coloured "Warm" Strichtarn if anything else...

Hope there will be no T-55 stuuf at least in DDR addition. This is supposed to be about new stuff, not about slapping ERA on Stalin-age tanks.

G'day to all my fellow East German players. Just made a thread proposing a change for the SPW-40 and SPW-152 over here: http://www.wargame-ee.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=155&t=45817

Thoughts?
