Tank Cupola Vision and the relationship with rate of fire. T34s are slow firing.

It seems early turret T34 commanders could not see well enough to fire quickly or orient fast enough with targets in comparison to german tanks. I guess this game takes place late enough for that to have been rectified. But I simply don't see cupolas on t34 75-76 even in this era. Perhaps the 85 does. I hope this is reflected in game.

Do you realize that when people talk about the early T34 they are talking about 1940?

I do but cannot remember anything but he t34 85 having a cupola. I assume that anything below that still had poor vision and slow reload.

From the T-34/76m43 on the cupolas were regular features of the T-34 series. They were continuously improved over time too.

The point I guess is which models were common in bagration. Notwithstanding the t34-85 which we know had a cupola.

T-34/76m43s were probably the single most common tank, with /85s following close behind. I'd be surprised if many '42 and earlier models were still in use by that time. I suspect a lot of them were destroyed or withdrawn for use as training tanks.

I'm super interested to see if Eugen gives the T-34/76s the shrapnel anti-personnel rounds.

I had no idea they used them. I knew the stewart had one.
