The French 20 mm Coaxial cannon cannot be selected

Platform PS4

Version - 1.83.0.128

 

  • AMX-40
  • AMX-30 (1972)
  • AMX-30B2
  • AMX-30B2 BRENUS

 

Happens in all game modes

 

The 20 mm M693 coaxial cannon of the tanks above cannot be selected when pressing the key «Select secondary weapon».

 

I Tried to select the coaxial canon with another key but i did not succeed.

 

The key «Select secondary weapon» is mapped to assume L1.

AMX-40 ( 20 mm M693 automatic cannon ) :

It does not work when pressing L1.

 

AMX-30 (1972) ( 20 mm M693 automatic ) :

It does not work also, i do not own both the AMX-30B2 and AMX-30B2 BRENUS but i assume it will be the same.

 

This method works on the following vehicles below that have coaxial cannons as secondary armament, you can move the turret using the coaxial armament as your main weapon.

 

Heavy Tank M6A1 ( 37 mm M3 ) :

I can select the cannon via the key «Select secondary weapon».

 

Neubaufahrzeug ( 37 mm KwK 36 ) :

I can select the cannon via the key «Select secondary weapon».

 

Pz.Kpfw. VIII Maus ( 75 mm KwK 44 L36 ) :

I can select the cannon via the key «Select secondary weapon».

Have a nice day

The coaxial MG of the AMX-30 and AMX-40 series are classified as Machine Guns and assigned the same control as the machine guns in other tanks that are similarly equipped. The guns fire together with the upper machine gun if you assign the fire machine gun button to the control.

 

The other tanks you listed in the example have a larger caliber secondary cannon and those are classified as secondary weapons and can be controlled as such.

But it is not a machine gun, it is a cannon so it should be a secondary weapon afterall.

 

There is no method to select the Coaxial without firing with the cupola.

Being an autocannon, it is classified as a coaxial machine gun and that is why it only fires together with the roof/cupola machine gun.

The terminology seen in the X-ray is not indicative of the way it is implemented in-game. The coaxial autocannon is classified as a coaxial MG in the game and fires as an MG and not a secondary weapon. 

 

I will pass this on to the localization team to update the text of the 20mm in the AMX-30B2/AMX-40 so that is is consistent.

....similarly you can fire the 7.62 co-axial machine gun in the AMX-13 independently. It is still classified as a coaxial Machine Gun and not a secondary weapon.
