So...what about the Type 74G missing its thermal?

And what about the T-80B getting Thermal when it shouldn't historically?

And why is the resolution for so many thermal devices so low? Like 90% of the thermal imaging devices have 1st gen resolution when a lot should have 2nd and 3rd and even 4th.

Challenger 1 mk. 2 and mk. 3: Should have Generation 2 thermal
Challenger 2: Should have Generation 3 thermal
Type 90: Should have Generation 3 thermal
Type 74G/Kai should have at least Generation 2 thermal (It has no thermal right now, despite that being the whole point of its existence)
T-80B has thermal when it shouldn't
That's just the ones I know of.

Hello and privet, I am very upset because of Leopard 2K losing its thermal sights. Are there any actual reasons for taking them away? Thanks.

The 2K was made during the same time as the MBT-70, which was pre-thermal. So from a simple guess, I'd say it's because it most likely never had thermal in the first place.

Oh nice, Kugelblitz too please.

Should have 60°/sec historically.

It never had thermal, it was an error that it had it in game.

Just look at any history book, or website, or anything... You should know that the Leopard 2 project starts several years AFTER the MBT-70 officially cancelled.

 

Yes, yes I know there's some source said that the thermal is an added to the Leopard2A1 and later variants. But...

Come on Gaijin. When the lowest BR for thermal sight is in 8.0, why you think it's OK to take away a BR 9.7 tank???

T-80B has thermal when it shouldn't

A bit of speculation on my part here, but I believe what they are doing is adding upgrades from subsequent versions of the vehicles, where there are no major modifications to the vehicle itself, like adding ERA (T-80B with Kontakt-1 is supposed to be a T-80BV). I believe they did a similar thing with one of the T-64s?

More speculation as I struggle to find good documentation: The T-80UM is basically a T-80BV with Thermal Sights instead of the old IR. Where as the T-80U has a redesigned turret along with the other upgrades, making it too different to make it a modification of the T-80B in-game.

 

All of this is terribly confusing in the game, and should be stated outright by Gaijin in a way that is transparent. As it is I don't blame people for yelling "russian bias!".

The tank engine sounds are still too low in third person view. It's actually louder when it's idling than when it gets going. From what I can tell, the engine sound is mostly on my woofer in 5.1 audio.  In standard four speaker sound, everything is fine with the engine sounds. So the engine sounds are in the low frequency range around 170 Hz to about 310 Hz. Now I can adjust it by using my equalizer and boosting those frequencies but I have to change my sampling rate to 48K from 96K in my sound card's settings. I don't want to do that as I want to keep sampling at 96K but my card won't let me for some reason (option is grayed out).

 

Also had to boost the 600 Hz frequency to hear the engine sounds once the tank is moving at speed. I guess the engine sound/rumble goes up in frequency when the engine is revving higher which makes sense.

What about the XM-1 and Leopard A1A1 L/44? I can find no source of them having thermals either?

In one of my threads mod Smin1080p posted the following

This is incorrect. T-80Us Thermal imagery was of Soviet origin and was present far before 2005. This is even evident at the Swedish tank trials where the T-80U present there had Thermal Optics fitted as well as other examples. Its entirely incorrect to say the T-80 did not have this capability until 2005. 

 

In addition, the T-80B also had this capability, so thats entirely correct and historical too. T-80B was fitted with the T01-P02-01 "Agava-2", system. Which we have replicated in game and you can find more information on here: https://thesovietarmourblog.blogspot.com/search?q=T-80#1a45 & 

I don't have access to reliable sources, but various sites mention the aforementioned agava 2 system as utilised since late 80s, so mounting them on t80b sounds possible.

Anyone else suffering random crashes after this server update. I've just had 2 complete crashes one being FATAL ERROR upon getting into a match. Everything is up-to-date with my game, my internet connection is stable and the game runs at 160 fps. The menus are fine even custom battles it seems to only happen when im in a match...

:good:

Btw shouldn't Sidam-25 have at least driver NVD? It has M113 hull and I think driver optics are the same.

M8 LAC - Shoulder stabilizer has been added.

This thing shouldn't be a reserve, it is at least 1.7 material. Great 37 mm cannon, 12,7 on top, shoulder stabilizer, good mobility and survivability.

You nerfed the Centurion Mk 10s mantlet armour correctly, but forgot to model the steel behind it, its supposedly 8 inches thick of cast steel, quite important!

The Sho't Kal Dalet is still missing its NVD for its gunners sight/FCS, and is still missing the addon armor on the UFP that Mk10's got. SKD's had that plate added when the Bet upgrade took place (the second upgrade the tanks received, before the Gimel upgrades that added new FCS and night sights and later Dalet upgrades which added the thermal sleeve, laser rangefinder and updated electronics), this armor is incorrectly modeled in game as the 5mm structural steel underneath the Blazer ERA plates on the UFP.

Please, please, PLEASE, fix the broken NSVT commander MG on the T-72A and T-80U. On the T-72A the gun aims much too high - on the T-80U the gun aims way too low. Please fix this. I've reported the T-80U but it seems to not yet have been fixed.. it's very annoying and has gotten me killed several times.

The Leopard 2K is not the same as the Leopard 2A0 or the other Leopard 2s that came after it.
The Leopard 2K was a different project, that ultimately led up to the Leopard 2. The Leopard 2K or Leopard 2 Keiler, is from 1969 to 1972, with the Leopard 2A0 being introduced in 1978. The MBT/Kpz. 70 project was cancelled in January of 1970.
So, yes, it was before thermal was a thing, and it was being designed and built during the last year of the MBT-70/KPz 70 project.

Could we get an update of the status of the cent 10 armour?

You're fixed the mantlet, now just need to model the trunnion block. The mod I talked to indicated they had access to the full documents on the new mantlet and trunnion design. It is quite important that that gets modelled as well.

 

Also, do you know if the chieftains and centurions are getting a volumentic armour TLC patch?? That would be a very nice thing to get on top of this recent fix. They really need the extra help
