T-64A & T-80

Postby Basil_pup » Tue 29 Jul 2014 20:13

Both of them have abnormaly low accurancy. Are they was just forgotten during medium tank reworking ?
P.S. T-64A was adopted to service in 1969 , not 1963.

The basic T-80 was pretty crap. Despite its 1976 entry into service, it was vastly inferior to the T-64B.

T-64A is just outdated.

If that's the case then the T-80 shouldn't cost more than it's superiors.

Haven't played around too much with the T-64A

I wouldn't say the T-80's total crap. It shouldn't have good acc or stabs, but it should (and kinda does) have everything else.

Riding on the back of this question. Why does the T64B and T64BM have 2100m max range, when (I believe) the T72A and T72M have 2275m max range?

Balance. Same reason the M1/IP have 2100 while the K1 has 2275.

30% accuracy is a joke. T-80 was one of the most used medium tanks in EE and back then everyone spazzgazmed around about real life and realism. Now its among worst pact tanks.

Those Abrams have 2100m due to their 105mm gun. Maybe a left over from the old days since nowadays even M48 can have 2200m.

I guess I can agree with that, but the T-64s cost more than the earlier T-72 models where as the K1 at least costs (slightly) more than the early M1s

The basic T-80 would make for a great forest fighter.

T-80 was pretty much just the T-64A turret on the new T-80 hull. Meaning no laser rangefinder among other things.

So the T-64B was certainly superior to the original T-80. However the next variant, the T-80B, was equal (and in some ways better) than the T-64B.
When in doubt blame UGBEAR.
