Huntereye APS and the future of War Thunder's tank countermeasures

Recently, IAI Elbit released a promotional video for the Huntereye APS. It is an anti infantry and drone APS which integrates into a RCWS to automatically counter threats. Now the question is, how would a system like this which would automatically engage targets such as scout drones fit into the current state of the game?

Sorry for the horrible quality, blame the 4mb upload limit on the forum

So it automatically detects a drone and then shoots at it using the MG? Well, could introduce a slew to cue capability where you (as the player) could be alerted to a drone and then choose to let the MG engage autonomously. Though I don’t think it has a place in-game against enemy vehicles that are not a drone.

We did have this system in the 2077 event where the AA tank had an APS that would automatically shoot at drones flying over in a close proximity

I doubt you’d want it automatically shooting though. But good to know.

Would be nice to have it as a toggle tbh
