App to help with vehicle recognition in Steel Beasts

Recommended Posts

Thanks ssnake, I appreciate it!

 

Yeah, pressing the Next button twice feels like a needless gesture. I modeled the quiz after Duolingo, which always provides feedback on whether you are wrong or right. But I can see the value of eliminating success feedback and simply moving on to the next question.

 

Thanks again for the pin and the feedback!

I propose more advanced quizzes, though. Like, an "8-wheels only" theme where you mix BTR-60s, -70s, and -80s, Piranhas, Luchs, and XA-360s at different ranges, angles, day and thermal. Having the thermal signature at full screen size is easy. Looking at blobs at 2000m range is much more of a challenge - or daysight, with rain.

 

Or "tanks with rounded turrets only" - basically anything that has substantial similarities particularly at longer ranges.

Happy to apply our gunnery standards:

 

10 sec exposure of a portion of a vehicle (thermal and day sight views, moving and static, various angles) - Gunner needs to determine fire / no fire.

 

80 or so exposures, 95% pass mark = 4 errors allowed.

How much is a "portion"?   It's not something ridiculous like just a side mirror is it?

Can be anything:

 

Half a road wheel.

 

Couple of road wheels (e.g. gap between 1st and 2nd in T-55, no gap T-62, T-72 type wheels, T-64 type, M113, Leopard, M1, Centurion, ...)

 

Track

 

Barrel

I tried it and i find this to be very nice and ill definite recommend this to my other friends.

 

Thought i wish it would at least sometimes be more challenging. Basically just as Ssnake said. Too often vehicles as option are way too different to be answer so it is really easy to eliminate wrong answers away. However if choices, at least part of them would be very similar it would be more difficult and test knowledge better.

 

Oh if i may, i would love to see version with limited amount of time where one has to decide if to shoot or not -  aka what camouflage (especially important on scenarios where parties have similar looking equipment) and if its hostile, as it might as well be civilian or ambulance
