Paper Vehicles: Should they be added, or forgotten?

I’m alright with paper vehicles/unfinished projects as long as it’s not too crazy. Mainly stuff that are similar or can be based off of existing vehicles.

I wanna see CXP-1001 or project-1006 warship someday.

How is the yak-141 fake. That’s the only prototype plane they actually modeled well

It was never fitted with a weapons system nor were any loadouts tested.

Just the airframe, engine and basic electronics to ensure proper flight testing.

The game will reach a point where paper vehicles are the only vehicles that can be added, all I ask for when that time comes is that they are grounded in reality and made realistic.

It was gonna be the new naval aircraft and worked and it deserved to be added even if it got cancelled due the collapse

I think it depends, it should be on a case-by-case basis.

The O-I? Absolutely. Would give Japan at least 1 tech tree heavy tank and there’s ample evidence at least a partial prototype was produced and tested.

The P.43 and its variants? Sure. Gives Italy some unique ~5.0-5.7 vehicles and they all had mockups produced (some 1:1 scale as well).

The E-50 and E-75? No. Not only do we not have information on their turret design, they don’t fill any gaps in the tech tree and they’re just not necessary.

Kranvagn? Yes. Gives Sweden a heavy tank and its hull was produced and tested in full.

I could maybe see a future tree with Czech vehicles adding some of the TVP tanks. Only blueprints were made iirc but it was planned for production. It would stop Gaijin copy-pasting T-54s for them though.

What other fan-favourite paper tanks are there?

Deserved to be added? I disagree. Wasn’t a fully functional prototype, thus it doesn’t pass the " smell test ".

Im preety sure it was functional

Very werid to have a photo of it flying if it didn’t work

Since reading comprehension seems to be something you lack in, I will help you by directing you to my prior post regarding why it doesn’t qualify as a fully functional prototype.


They intended to arm it through

actually, the prototypes were 4 and two still survive

just wanted to specify it

Should be on a nation by nation basis. US and USSR have 0 need for paper vehicles. Britain in contrast has loads of paper vehicles, but few production vehicles. Whilst not all are necessary a limited handful could help fill gaps

Why should Kikka, VB1002, J7W1, Swift F7, Ar 234 C-3, Ho-229, and XP-50 be removed just cause they didn’t have weapons?

Certainly, but it never got developed to that point. As such, as far as I am concerned it doesn’t qualify and never should’ve been added with the natural progression being it’s removal from the game along with every other unfinished and untested prototype.

Unfirtunately, I don’t run Gaijin so the likelihood of it happening is next to nil.

wonder what this
and for a paper jet it sure did alot

it was only canned not due to being a failure but that USSR just split up so they couldn’t make it anymore

i should also add that in the early 90s both Alenia and British Aerospace showed interest for the Yak-141 as a replacement for the Harrier, sadly nothing came of it.

Around the same time Yakovlev started a cooperation with Lockheed-Martin to help fund the program (Lockheed btw bought the documentation of the Yak-141 and likely used in the JSF program)

insult aren’t needed cause you don’t want this plane in the game

Pointing out an observation founded on evidence is hardly an insult.

If you don’t like your poor reading comprehension being highlighted, then improve it so you can do a better job with discussions and not come off as an ignorant sod moving goalposts just for the sake of moving goalposts.

Do better for yourself. Reading comprehension is a skill as valuable as gold.
