  1. I need to know the source of these documents TT33a. Please provide the references. Thanks
  2. The internal graphics are not dynamic. There is a long term plan to implement this at a later date. The X-Ray is largely for game immersion purposes.
  3. Hello! Thank you for your help improving the game. Your information has been forwarded to the developers and the tracking number is: ID:0058890 This thread will remain unlocked for one week (7 days) so that anyone with additional information\evidence\examples will have a place to post. After this time the report will remain active but will be archived. It will also serve as a place where the developers will post questions for you to answer so please keep up to date here. The term "Structural Steel" is a Gaijin generic term for multiple types of steel used to make tanks by many Nations. It therefore encompasses the term 'hardened steel' etc.
  4. Can you please try the following: 1. Exit the game. 2. Using File Explorer/This PC - navigate to the War Thunder directory on your computer system. 3. Locate the 'cache' sub directory in the War Thunder directory and delete it. 4. Restart War Thunder via the game Launcher and allow game to update and analyze Files. 5. Enter Game and re-check for issue. As you can see below I can aim correctly etc. Thanks
  5. Is that the same Panzer Tracts reference TT33a? ( Panzer Tracts 9-2 Jagdpanzer IV L/48 Fgst. Nr. 320105: )
  6. Hi, Thanks for the report. Have you replicated the issue or did it occur only the once? Can you supply the server replay and dxdiag as per the guidelines for reports. If no further information is received within 48 hours, we will close this task and you will need to submit a new report. Kind Regards, KotA
  7. Hi, This issue is already known and has been sent to the Developer's for resolution.

Can I draw your attention to the guidelines for making a Historical Issues Report HERE - Please ensure your reports comply with these guidelines. Can I draw your particular attention to point 3 of the above link please; 3. A detailed description of the fix you suggest. Provide sources including references that underline your position. *Please be reminded that Wikipedia or other private Websites are generally not considered as reliable sources. The required number of sources requires depends on the type of source presented: User Manual / Repair Manual / Factory Manual etc (Flight/Pilot/Maintenance Manuals Engineering Drawings etc) - Historically acknowledged reference sources - single source is required. Reference works (collections of vehicles) Biographies, Books, "expert" opinion publications, websites etc - at least two unrelated sources required. * Please ensure the references have: Report/Document Type, Report/Document Name, Author, Date, ISBN/ISSN, relevant Pg No's etc - so our Historical consultant can review and check the accuracy of those documents against the substantial Gaijin Historical Database and Reference Sources.

If this is not possible and only higher links can be referenced then please provide page or title information to locate the relevant reference. Photographs need to be fully referenced. Kind Regards, KotA
  8. Unable to replicate issue. I have tired multiple times but each time the collision with the building occurred and the aircraft was destroyed. As I mentioned I suspect that this was a data latency issue. The smoke in the first pic is a previous test.
  9. We will test it again. However we have tested this previously. As I indicated.
  10. Strange that it ( http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C2193074 ) says "This record has not been digitised and cannot be downloaded." When we have a digital copy of it. The other issue with the reference is a lack of date on the (TD.5911)document. We just have the Sept 1942 date in the digital Title record. But we can use that date. Which references are associated with the various screenshots used please. I need to know which comes from where. Thanks
  11. Thanks for that. Much appreciated. I will investigate further.
  12. I will test this with another Technical Moderator. Cheers
  13. Thanks TT33a, This mainly applies to the Rank 5 tanks mentioned in the Changelog. However I will include the others just in case. I would assume though that the Rank 4 etc will get theirs in time. I will create a separate report for the Jagdpanzer IV L/48 and get that port changed. Thanks
  14. Can you please carry out the following and let us know if the issue persists. a. Update your Graphics Driver. NVIDIA has released several versions since the version on your machine. Latest Version 382.53 09 Jun 2017 b. 1. Exit the game. 2. Using File Explorer/This PC - navigate to the War Thunder directory on your computer system. 3. Locate the 'cache' sub directory in the War Thunder directory and delete it. 4. Restart War Thunder via the game Launcher and allow game to update and analyze Files. 5. Enter Game and re-check for issue. Thanks
  15. In have reviewed your replay file. As far as I can tell you were destroyed by being in the blast zone of the Wellington (serpollo). Your Puma had already taken hits and three crew were incapacitated. The blast area was sufficient to damage the remaining crew/vehicle and make it combat ineffective. Cheers
  16. Thanks. I will try to replicate. Although I suspect a data latency issue is the cause.

  18. As I said, I believe it could be an error in the Changelog. I am seeking clarification.
  19. DO NOT TYPE IN RED OR BOLD. This is only for MODERATORS. Please read the Forum Rules. Please follow the Guidelines. This report has multiple vehicles and breaks this Guideline. This statement is incorrect and the incorrect conclusion drawn due to not understanding the underlying functions of the game. The kill-cam or the Replay file cannot provide this fidelity of information. It is a data reconstruction and not an image. Great caution should be used when using the replay file. The kill-cam is for game immersion purposes. Please ensure that your reports comply with the guidelines. Please re-submit the report and we will look into it further. As I previously indicated. Thanks
  20. You should report this to the PS 4 section of the Forums. You will need to supply a video from your PlayStation. Thanks
  21. This is the same task that was looked at yesterday. Where you clearly kill two T-44-100's. What time was this in your area? Was it peak period for the Internet in your country? Have you contacted your ISP as suggested previously. I tested this issue yesterday and could not replicate it. As I have previously mentioned to you the number of these types of reports that you supply is indicative of a data latency issue.
  22. The game damage model is sensitive to controls and control cables etc. When these are struck there is a loss of control of the aircraft. This part of the game. What is written on a forum is largely not relevant. We deal with actual bug reports, not players venting on the forums. The area you call the inner section or inner wing contains control rods to operate the elevators. If these are damaged then the aircraft will indeed become uncontrollable. I will test this but I suspect that the reason above is the cause. Cheers

  25. Hi MrMG42, Thank you for that. I now understand the issue better. The Changelog http://warthunder.com/en/game/changelog/current/704 Did indeed have the sentence that you mention. However, there was also another part to it. (See below) There is a box below that indicates the British and Russian tanks that have had smoke grenades implemented on. It is the case that the Germans have it implemented on some and not others. But I have also found US and Japanese tanks that have had the Smoke Grenade Launcher added that are not included in the above Changelog. This maybe an error in the Changelog. Not all of the tank may have been included. The US M551 and M60A2; Japanese STB-1, Type 87, Type 74 etc all have smoke grenade launchers added but are not mentioned in the Changelog also. I have the Germans as. Has Smoke Grenade Mod Tiger H1 Panther D, A, G, F, II, Tiger II (H) Tiger II (H) Sla Does not have the Smoke Grenade Mod. Tiger E Jagdpanther Bfw Jagdpanther Tiger II (P) Tiger II 105 Jagdtiger Maus E100 I suspect that this modification just hasn't been rolled out to all the vehicles yet and others will be added in time. I will submit this and seek a clarification from the Developers. Cheers
  26. Hi, I have reviewed what I can. Only one of your replay's is recent enough to be viewed(the last one). All the others I can not get to run. They would also appear to be different versions to the current game given their dates. The replay you have given me does not display any issues that I think are beyond normal gameplay. Your staffing runs on the Crusader tank results in hits as you indicate. None of the previous replays are viewable and are not the current version of the game. Can you please re-test this issue on the current version of the game and then if the issue is still present re-submit the report with all the required information as per the guidelines. We will be happy to review this issue then. Cheers

  28. I have reviewed your replay's and tested this vehicle. I cannot replicate the issue that you initially describe. The replay file you provided actually shows you quite happily destroying two T-44-100's. The replay is clearly not the one in the initial post as the ending is in completely different location and the game time durations do not match. Based on the results of the tests and your own replay I do not believe there is an issue with the model or the game. Given the number of reports like this that you make it could well be your connection, location or network. There are many possibilities. Thanks for your report. Can you please ensure that when you submit reports that you comply with the guidelines. This will expedite the investigation of your issue. Cheers
  29. Yep. There is a time delay on rockets. Not a bug.
  30. So does the above replay match the original clog. Or is it the replication of the issue replay? Please ensure that your reports comply with the guidelines or they will not be Approved. Cheers
  31. Did you replicate this as per the guidelines? Also, the replay's and kill-cam are not 'images', they are data reconstructions and great caution needs to be taken when interpreting the results.
  32. Thanks, I will look at them.

  41. HI JohnGR, I tried to report this but those file images are corrupt or something. I have attempted to upload them several times but the png files are not complete. I cannot even view them in Photo viewer. If I open them I get some sort of imgur interface. Even if I tell that to download the image it is corrupt. Can you please attach them direct to the forum please. Thanks

    Hi, The 2000 lbs of bomb ordinance is already implemented in the game. 4 x 500lb and 2 x 1000lb. The HVAR rockets have already been reported = ID:0052862 Gaijin has already indicated that it does not intend to implement AAM's in game. Thanks for the report. Cheers

  51. That is a secondary reference (Reference works (collections of vehicles) Biographies, Books, "expert" opinion publications) it therefore needs a confirming reference. I might also point out that the page even indicates that the figures produced and data that was "estimated". This is not a high quality reference. Although we appreciate fully that information on proto-types, conceptual vehicles etc are difficult to get information on. Cheers

  54. Okay, thanks. I will submit this, but technically the model complies with the reference. As the reference sets a 'range' (2 - 3) and currently the reload rate is within that range, but not at the maximum rate. The Developers can review it and decide. Cheers
  55. Thanks, I take it that the clogs cover both replays? Is this correct? Cheers

  59. In game it is done usually by pushing the nose up against a building and accelerating. But that will not give you a definitive value. But it is close. Normally thrust etc is done in design. This issue may well have come about because the engine was recently changed to the correct one. ID: 0052751
  60. I can give you a longer time to find an appropriate references, if that will help. You would better off to find primary references to support your case.

  63. Hi ganJ, That would sound correct if I understand you. Three rounds being maximum RoF so that would be with an Ace level crew. That would be correct. The game baseline is Aced crew with all skills achieved and fully modified vehicle. Part of the 'game'(strategically) is to 'grind' the vehicles and crews to these levels.
