Why is the Stormer HVM so bad?

Anyone having major phasing issues? Cause I am.

Can’t say i am personally, I’ve shot down over 100 aircraft the last night couple of nights and I’d say out of 70 shots 2 i can say for 100% certainly they went through the aircraft.

Well, the phasing got fixed sub 100 ping, if you go over 100 ping, you will be phasing

India 2S6 9K33 SA13


It still happens that the missile passes through the planes without doing anything? I say this because I have always noticed that the server does not recognize more or less half of the shots from the 20mm tank cannons, for example when playing with the marder a1 I shot an M109 in the front of the turret, and the game didn’t recognize the damage until almost when it killed me, about three seconds without causing damage.

Lets just add them out of spite along with this. BRDM-2 TEL (Kentron)

Explains alot, mines 50 max

They never outright said no on ZA HVM, only that at the time there was no plan to add it. They’ve added more egregious “Mockups” and Paper vehicles than a vehicle with working Weapons, a working chassis, and a mockup turret. Its not like they stopped because they couldn’t do it. They stopped because they no longer NEEDED it.


Nope, they did say that they thought it was a real spaa, but later realised it is a mockup, so gave up on it

That doesn’t mean it’ll never be added tho. If the need ever arises for another high tier SPAA (I’m pretty sure the missiles it uses would put it at least 10.7-11.0) or if we CONVINCE them well enough, I’m sure they’d be open to adding it. They just need to get over their fear of adding something fun and within the meta the the UK tree.

Well, there is a way to find out.
Hey @Smin1080p, hope you are having a good day, can you dispel the doubts about this topic. Is there a chance for Rooikat ZA-HVM/SAM/SPAAM to appear in the tech tree, or we will never be able to enjoy it?
This thing


As long as he doesn’t respond, I can hold hope.

Dont worry, He will, He always does. The only thing you never know when, as Smin has multiple places to be at the same time, con of being a CM.

Ah I think I see some confusion.

When I said “Its not like they stopped because they couldn’t do it. They stopped because they didn’t need it”. I wasn’t talking about Gaijin, I was talking about South African development of the vehicle itself.

Rereading your response makes it seem like that could’ve been a point of confusion in our conversation.

We have no current plans to introduce this vehicle as it has a non-functional mock-up turret.


No current plans doesn’t mean it’ll never get added tho. Its just like I said before, its not a hard no. I’m sure there weren’t plans 5 years ago to add the Pantsir.

Or I guess more relevantly to the topic of mockups there wasn’t a plan to add the Yak 141 years ago.

As there is currently no IR missile for the UK TT, or alternative for the very eh Stormer HVM (when it works):
I will keep advocating for it until it comes or at least an equivalent for the UK TT

It would be better to focus on other vehicles and suggestions for them, rather than this one.


So bits and bobs like Stormer 30, Stormer AD, Tracked Rapier, VERDI 2 etc?


Played a bit of Stormer today, and much to my surprise; the missiles actually functioned. 3 of 3 helicopters launched at died, and only 1 Su-25 required a second launch to kill.

Here’s hoping it’ll get even better without requiring FTL connection to the servers.

Other suggestions tend to fall flat or disappear into the void.

Stormer AD was passed to Devs 5 years ago, yet the Brit tree is still without an IR SAM vehicle.

Tracked rapier only just got passed to Devs, so circa 5+ years before it’s added?
