Blockquote I said that I would be fine if it was premium.
If you said that then that’s fine although I can’t find it but whatever ;)
Blockquote Woah, we 110% wanted to play Germany in our 2A6s and meet Finnish 2A6s!
Exacly, at least Strv 122 have actual in game differences but Finnish 2A6 is just straight copy.
Blockquote The hull of the Vickers Mk.7 is German, why ain’t it in Germany as well? In fact it wasn’t exported because Germany blocked the UK from reselling their (Germany’s) technology.
Because half of the tank is Bri’ish, the turret is Bri’ish, gun is Bri’sih, half of the electronics are Bri’ish, the hull is German, the Engine+Transmission are German and half of the electronics are German, so the only choice was to give it to the one who needed it more I guess :P
Blockquote So if I’m understanding this correctly, your train of thought basically equeals; not operated - > no TT vehicle. Would this be a correct summary?
No, you don’t.
I already stated why KF41 should be what I would like it to be and why.
Blockquote “Italy’s Leopard 1A5 shares the same name as Germany’s! Must be copy-paste.”
Ignoring that Italy’s has a different model & a laser warning system.
Well I’m afraid it absolutely has no effect as of currently in the game, in the game LWR is LWR and compared to APS it works the same no matter what vehicle and what LWR system exactly was mounted, this is the same with Thermals, Stabilization, Rangefinders, NVD, etc.
You can have two different tanks with 2nd Gen Thermals for the gunner but tank A has better quality because it has higher resolution compared to the tank B, but in War Thunder if you take M1A1 AIM thermals and compare them to Leopard 2A6 commander 2nd Gen Thermals, you will find that the image quality is exactly the same.
The difference in model is that you can see LWR sticking out of the turret.
And I don’t consider 1A5 in Italy copy paste, yes it has one difference but it has it at least, when for exampe T-72M1 in real life never used anything better than 3BM15 (because russian never sold their puppets anything more powerful) but gaijin for whatever reason gave T-72M1s the 3BM22 and because of that, it’s straight T-72A copy with different name but no differences at all :P
So no, I’m not calling any vehicle copy-paste just because it has same name, there are many vehicle I want that for people that are the most active on the forums would be copy-paste because they would just see it as “bleh it’s just bigger Type 93” or “It’s just T-72A with thermals and different era” :P
