Mogwa Posted February 18, 2013 Share Posted February 18, 2013 Well the long and the short of it, is that the Challenger 2 is comparable to the other western tanks of the same "era", M-1A1, Leo 2A5, etc. The problem is that the Challenger 2 suffers in the ammo arena. I think the 2 piece ammo limits the length/diameter ratio of the perpetrator for the L27 "Charm 3" APFSDS and I dont think HESH is a reliable killer of modern armor (all my unresearched opinions. direct all complaints here not to E Sim or anyone else). Challenger is first rate against the anticipated threat of the day, T72B, T-80, (and although not found in SB ProPE, T-90, Type 99?) so the notional battles we fight here cant really be applied to debate the design decisions made 10 to 20 years ago IRL. IMHO its as much a factor of the players skills or how they deploy the tank as it is the "numbers" at work in the model. Different anmmo types are provided and are an excellent way to balance dissimilar vehicle types. As for the trolling well it is as predictable as a sunrise given the source. The best response is to not rise to the bait. Its sort of like the NFL. Its not the guy who throws the first punch that (usually) gets the penalty from the referee, its the guy that replies who gets caught. Often this happens here, where someone starts something on TS or in another thread and the victims in frustration, respond and draw the ire of the powers that be and cause disappointment in the behavior of everyone from guys like yourself. Don't judge the group by the conduct of one malcontent.Mog 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
