(28-07-2021) [] Begleitpanzer 57 Missing Ammunition Capacity


1.A detailed description of the issue you have encountered. It is also important that you describe how we can reproduce the issue, if you are able to reproduce it.

When entering a match or going into a custom battle you are unable to take more then 96 rounds for the L/70 57mm Bofors mk.1.


2.If applicable, the full name(s) of the vehicle(s) affected.

German, light tank "Begleitpanzer 57"

Game modes affected: Arcade,Realistic,Simulator


3.A detailed description of the fix you suggest. Provide sources including references that underline your position.  This is up to the discretion of the Technical Moderator handling the report, however the number of sources required depends on the type of source presented

The Begleitpanzer 57 is missing its total ammunition capacity it should be able to carry .

Currently the vehicle in game is modeled  with access to only 96 rounds which is incorrect , documents for the vehicle state a ammunition hold capacity of 148 in total.

48 Rounds loaded into the gun along with 100 extra rounds in the vehicle hull.


I have provided screenshots of the relevant pages/ new documents  from BOFORS and Rheinstahl AG which should be treated as a new primary source regarding the Bgeleitpanzer below.




4.Please attach screenshot(s) and/or video(s) showing the issue in game.

(In game the Begleitpanzer 57 is only able to carry a total of 96 rounds instead of 148.)






Below I have posted new primary source documents from Bofors, specifically page 7 which states that the total carried ammo should be 148 rounds. 48 in the gun ready rack and 100 extra in stowage.

Both Primary and all secondary sources also mention the total ammo capacity should be 148 rounds in total.


Rheinstahl AG/Bofors Primary Source Documents



Page 7 shown below lists that the gun holds 48 rounds+ another 100 rounds inside the vehicle totaling 148 rounds carried which can be backup up by the brochure and secondary sources I have provided.
