A bug that caused duplicate smoke effects after using smoke grenades has been fixed.
A destroyed module no longer covers other functioning modules in the damage module indicator while in battle.
Absence of the “rate of fire” parameter for non-automatic guns and the “reload time” parameter for automatic guns when viewing ships in X-ray view in the hangar has been fixed. (Report)
Challenger and Leopard 1 —the sounds of the engines have been improved in accordance with feedback from players. Now, constant revolutions are better audible and are better combined with the sounds of revving.
A bug that caused flares to sound like jet engines when flying through them has been fixed.
Challenger 3 TD — the engine sound has been changed to the same as Challenger tanks, as it previously had the sound of the Leopard 2’s engine, which was incorrect.
Flickering of trees in the aircraft hangar has been fixed.
The “Film Lover” achievement has been removed, as it was impossible to complete it on console.

Excellent work on the new Challenger sounds! A very nice and welcome first patch of the year.
However, one issue related to their sound still remains: initial revving up sound effect is still based on Chieftain’s Leyland engine! An easy solution would be to modify this layer by making it lower-pitcher or deeper, making it sound more “diesel-y”.
Another fine-tuning suggestion I would make is to make the new “growl” layer a bit lower-pitched/deeper, contrasting further with the turbo whine (the improved revving up sound I suggest and this layer should have the same pitch/depth, merging with each other seamlessly).
And, lastly, another final fine-turning suggestion I would have would be to increase the volume of the turbo whine layer! It’s the most characteristic sound in Challenger’s engine and it’s a bit too concealed as of now.
Hopefully, other Challenger 2-related issues will be addressed soon too. I will be looking forward to further updates! ^^
This doesn’t make sense; the sound of the Challenger 2E is different from the other Challenger 2 models because it has a more powerful engine. Please incorporate the sound of the Challenger 2E into the Challenger 3. Now, Gaijin has given me another reason not to finish grinding for the Challenger 3…
Okay, anything is better than this annoying sound. The guy literally tried to help and ended up bringing back the annoying engine sound to the Chally 3. This is ironic; it was better to stick with the Leopard’s sound… Gaijin.net // Issues
