  1. Great news! Looking Forward to the release.
  2. Has the COVID-19 lockdowns effected the release date of the update?
  3. I am having trouble finding this round in the mission editor? Is it available? It seems to be listed. Thanks
  4. I would like to see some Copy paste options with the map editor, Also some more bunker/ trench options. Perhaps a 2a19 Rapira 100mm AT gun. Dug in and with good application of cameo, these options would be a very tough to spot and dig out and add some nice depth for attacking/defending scenarios.
  5. Any changes to helicopters? New types or changes in behavior? Maybe I don't currently know how to use them properly, and get them to act aggressive enough to cause a headache. With the new Anti Air units and weapons, it seems that they are meat on the table now.
  6. Few small questions There have been a few updates to the armor models of tanks in SB correct? Are the LOS armor diagrams still accurate? If not are there updated values? Challenger 2 for example seems a little high from what we have learned recently..( I could be wrong and I fully expect to be told that I am) What version of the Leo-2A4 armor do we have in the game? D tech? Any plans to get other armor packages in the game? Thanks for your time.
  7. T-72Bm1989 playable Type-98/96 non playable T-90 early version nonplayable Leo-2 with B-C armor tech. (we have D tech correct?) Chieftain mk-10 T-62M-playable
  8. Looking forward to being able to do this....

    M1A2C

    According to the document bellow a version of the armor "technology" in the XM-1 offered protection against a 115mm DU APFSDS fired at a velocity I suspect is above 1600m/s across 25 deg arc, when fitted to an IFV. So in is possible that the M1 production model was protected against such ammunition. So we know that the M1 armor could have been tested against DU apfsds. What round? M774 with a increased propellant? Basic pen calc suggest suggest that would do around 380-420mm at 0 at close range. Makes the CIA docs seem somewhat close, and referring to a DU monoblock round as th

    M1A2C

    I would be interested in knowing what the threat profile for the M1A1 was meant to face. Most of the documentation on APFSDS available to the USSR in the early to mid 1980s was that they performed very poorly against spaced composite arrays. IIRC a BM-22 loses 30% of its pen ability just by impacting a thin steel plate and having 500mm of air before the next layer of steel. So against the M1 I suspect the round would have preformed poorly. The more the angle of impact of the short tungsten slug goes up the more likely it will shatter against the RHA black plate of the M1...RHA equivalence be
  11. I think too much certainty is being drawn from it. It gives us some good insight into German armor packages against monoblock rounds (also the T-80U). However if that is vague. B-level and C-Level are rather clear armor inserts. Where I find confusion is the nature of the D armor packages. D-1/2/3, what exactly are these referring to? Are these inserts? Or Inserts plus NERA Wedge armor. Or differnt combos of each. D-1 say is B-Level plus wedge D-2 C level plus wedge, and D-3 a new insert plus wedge? Or different inserts more optimized more against CE? Seems to be that B-level te
  12. The claim has been made that the Swedes had planned to have a wedge type armor on the turret of their M1A2. That the Export Armor package which is also claimed to be the equivalent to HAP-2 was not able to get sufficient protection over 700mm across the frontal arc with out the addition of the wedge type armor. I don't see any evidence of this. Is there anything to support this claim. IMHO It doesn't appear to be the case as the protection profile of the M1A2 with the Swedish armor was worse then the Leo-2 with it, with greater LOS on the passive armor 860mm vs 930-950
  13. Was there not a minor upgrade to the M1A1HA in 1990? Also as per the release of the Document re: Swedish armor trials. I have to wonder if the export armor package of the M1A2 is similar to the BRL-2 package, perhaps an evolution of it.. 600mm vs KE +- 30 deg is actually very good. No one seems to have much of a sweet clue as to what the protection of BRL-2 (1984) is like. Thinking about the thickest part of the turret (inserts ~900-960? mm los) I have heard estimates range from 400-to 600mm vs KE head on. The document states that the 1987 armor package on the Leo-2 is about 575m
  14. Yeah I suspect it could be modeled rather well. The FCS for the T-80U transplants to the T-90S...The Devs seem to be hesitant to model player use of the GLATGMs used by Russian tanks forces..I suspect what ever the reason is must be a bit of a hurdle.
