So I recently noticed that the Challenger 2 had a first stage ammo rack of 4 rounds. Which is just purely wrong. In a video from a live fire exercise with the Challenger 2 it is seen that the loader is taking AP rods from the rear ammo rack in the turret and taking more than 4 charges from the front bin.
Now, the reload. I decided to measure the length of all of the reloads and calculate an average.
My definiton of reloads beginning the first move of the loader and the end of the reload to be the loader clearing the path of the breech.
As you can see the times were:
When we add all of these together and divide them by 5 we get our average which the math would look like this
20.68/5=4.136 which we could present as 4.1 seconds if we round it up
Therefore I think that the number which gaijin decided to use as the reload is purely wrong.
I’d like to hear your guys’ opinions!
