I wonder when they will start correcting tank armor based on reports from the servers, huh, developers?

I would like to ask
FV4333 Stormer HVM SPAA, the missiles are not aligned with the camera and fly through the plane or if one of the three missiles hits the plane is undamaged, the same thing happens to the helicopter and I would also like to see in the future the stormer be able to split the missiles and hit several smaller targets at once and one more thing, I would like to know why the Starstrek HVM rockets got masked nerfs that can’t be found in the devblog GAIJIN ?? !!

This one does not make sense… the report is for the E version not A or C. The E version has MASSIVE upgrades compared to A/C. it not even the same airframe as A/C. how did this go through?

the E has has such big changes that it cannot be used for report for A/C. it has bigger internal fuel tanks in addition to different airframe. the space for ammo is probably not the same between the E and A/C. i have no idea if its bigger or smaller, but it can’t be used for changing the A/C version.

if they cant use information about armor for tanks from documents on similar tanks then this should not count either.

It was forwarded as a suggestion and not a bug precisely because it was on the Gripen E and not C. Additional material was also provided by other users that confirms 120 rounds of ammunition for the C.

Coupled with the fact the ammunition box physically is not big enough to carry that amount of ammunition when the same gun on the Tornado had less ammunition than the Gripen originally with a larger box.

If you have source that claims another figure is correct, we can certainly pass that for consideration.

Is there a possibility to get those other sources used?
(and its a bit odd to OLNY link to a report on a different version plane when justifying a change when other sources also was used)
i get that 500 rounds is way to much and unreasonable, i just got confused by the fact that they used version E as a source for changing A/C, even estimating a value would have been more acceptable in my personal opinion.

Edit:
i sadly don’t speak/read finish, but when that document is google translated it says “rate of fire 120”. not number of rounds carried?

oh, i ment the first bit.

We don’t know this do we?

Even Wikipedia says it’s 120rd.

sure, but Wikipedia isn’t a source and there is no source listed in Wikipedia for that information so we have no way of knowing if that is true.

This document here on the website of the SAAF also confirms the 120 rounds: Microsoft Word - Inside Gripen.doc (saairforce.co.za)

The Gripen is intended primarily to use air-to-air missiles and “smart” air-to-surface weapons, but can also deliver “dumb” bombs when these are better suited to a target, and the single-seat variant also has a 27mm Mauser BK27 cannon armed with 120 rounds.
