L2PSO and Strv.122 have wrong armor // Gaijin.net // Issues
Leopard 2A7V - The Next German Crown Jewel - Suggestions / Ground - War Thunder — official forum
The main armor of the Leopard 2PSO hull should be at least 600KE
The hull armor of the Strv.122 should be 600KE+150KE, not 400+350KE
In War Thunder, the hull armor of the Strv.122 consists of 520mm composite armor and 100mm/53° composite armor
Of these, 520mm composite armor provides 400KE, and 100mm/53° composite armor provides 350KE, which is obviously unreasonable
The armor used in the Strv.122 and later the newly produced Leopard 2A6 was called the D-Armor, which in fact consisted of the D1 main armor and the D2 additional armor
In War Thunder, the production team made C armor + a D2 armor that did not conform to material science (100mm/53° composite armor to provide 350KE is impossible)
In fact, according to Swedish data, the C+D2 armor has only 40% of the protective area in the DM53’s target test
The armor configuration of D1+D2 has 75% of the protective area in the target test of DM53.
C armor only has 30% effective protection area at 500KE,
Obviously, the production team has a very rough understanding of the military and did not seriously produce it.
Apparently the production team is still ignoring the normal demands of players, as early as when Strv.122 joined the game, many players submitted armor errors,
But the official perfunctory will not solve anything, and the German player who waited three years was not for a Leopard 2A5 with an M5 heavy machine gun
The issue of armor must be revised
The production team has already acknowledged the Swedish file, so I will not upload it anymore.
