Alright , with the implementation of more vehicles with F&F ammunition i think its time T129 atak received its correct ammo
The L-UMTAS just dont cut it and the cicrit are meh at best
Many bug reports have been sent and all to deaf ears
For reference here is the original post which suggested the heli to be added:
TAI/AgustaWestland T129 ATAK - Implemented Suggestions - War Thunder - Official Forum
Not even half the armament made it into the game
EDIT 2 :
UMTAS - Wikipedia
OMTAS Anti-Tank Guided Missile | MilitaryToday.com
range suggests for OMTAS 4km F&F could be very balanced for a premium vehicle even tho im strongly against nerfing vehicles for the sake of it
edit 3 : my bug report
Gaijin.net // Issues here is the admin or whatever saying its for balance reasons
The current T129 is fine as it is.
They can add a later T129 with the fire and forget UMTAS. Either to the tech tree, or a squadron vehicle would work.
No its not fine as it is and theres no later t129 , this IS the t129 which should have all the above mentioned
It is fine. UMTAS just means higher BR and people can’t use it in their 10.3 lineup anymore.
There were two different configurations of T129 delivered to Turkey, the pre-production “A build” in 2014 and the full-spec “B build” in 2015. And the A’s were retrofitted to the B standard.
Its fine for the premium to be the earlier build, and the later one with more advanced weapons can be a separate heli.
To add to this, Smins comments are still correct.
This is not a bug but intentional. The ATAK was added with its current weaponry intentionally to have it at the BR it currently is. Not providing it with AGM-114K, Spike, L-UMTAS (late), UMTAS (early) and UMTAS (late) missiles was an intentional balance decision.
Please feel free to create a suggestion for a later version of the helicopter with this weaponry on the forum.
I’d suggest going to the suggestion section of the forum and creating a suggestion. (how many times can I say suggestion in one sentence haha)
Please select the appropriately sub-forum & tag to post your suggestion in.
This is the b spec according to everything modeled and mounted + to what the dev said
