Give USSR antitank rifle

Postby brroleg » Sun 28 Sep 2014 11:34

KPVT machine gun actually is based on same caliber antitank rifle from WW2. Wiki says this rifles was in service until 1960s. It perfectly fits into game, as there is some units even older

I think ussr lacks 1200-1400m cheap antitank infantry weapons like red dragons has. To be unique, soviet variant of this weapon will have 14mm antitank rifle with KE stat instead of heat, and no HE stat, so it will not shoot infantry. So i think in total it should have this stats: 40% acc, 1400m range, 3ap power with KE stat, no HE, 7 RPM. Make new infantry unit with this weapon(and call them reservists), or better and simpler, give this weapon to basic motostrelki instead of their crappy rpg.

Cat C is 1980 so I think you should maybe think this through again.

Additionally, what the hell are you smoking for your AP value?

Why would it be higher than the KPVT?
If there's two kinds of players, those that like challenges and those that want a fair game, pubstomps should make everyone happy.

ASU-85M dated in game as 1959
BTR-152E ZPTU-2 dated in game as 1950

KPVT has general purpose ammo, antitank rifle has special armor piercing ammo.

You seem to have mistaken this for RUSE.

Ok, this rifle can pen 40mm at 100m range and at AP 3 so can we find cannons that can pen 140mm at 1000m range. AP 1 would be a fair deal for this gun.

These type of guns works really well during WW2, but basic AP rounds doesn't cut it anymore and some form of APDS is needed.

I love brroleg threads.

But no. Just no.
Do I look like a reasonable man to you, or a peppermint nightmare?

Maybe you right with 1AP. Then ROF need be a little higher, 9 or 10 RPM

Why exactly do you want the USSR to be equipped with horribly obsolete and ineffective equipment?
