Probably to make it easier for the loader. Notice how it moves back down (breech goes up) when she presses a button after loading.

better to reload heavy shell if your gun is lower, ofc u can disable the system

Illusionz
Illusionz

I never thought of this because even though it's all computer programming, there's a chance the barrel wouldn't go down to the same position and could mess shots up.

Sharpcharm
Sharpcharm

After shooting barrel goes into "straight position" wich allows loader to load the shell more faster.

Notice how that qt is pressing switch after loading that makes barrel go into last position or the new target.

Spazyfool

Wyvern is 30€.

Gaijin only sells the unique and high rank stuff as gift packs as of late for maximum profit, I mean who the fuck would pay 30 bucks for a single virtual plane and spare change golden eagles that dropped in value?
I remember the Steam sale packs where you could get 3 planes, 1 month of premium and 2500 eagles for 10€. Now they raised the price and reduced the shit you get from it too.

They used to sell a 190 D-13 and P-51 D-10 pack on Steam too, I think those were like 7€ on a Christmas sale and came with 2k eagles and a week of premium.
No idea where those went, guess getting a rank IV plane for cheap is bad for Gaijin business.

Does the grind just get worse the longer you go on?

Getting to Tier 2 was relatively fast, but after that things have bogged down at Tier 3-4 to the point where now I'm just unlocking all the Tier 1 planes because I can do it in a few missions instead of spending an entire day grinding a single plane.

ZeroReborn
ZeroReborn

Grinding to unlock a rank 5 plane gives you suicidal thoughts, unlocking all performance modules for it will end you.

Shooting at ai(s), dropping bombing at bases, and flying in a straight line until the landing craft shows up to end the match

Yeah, real fun you stupid idiot. . .

likme
likme

you get your first rank 2 in hours, unlock others and spade them without notice, just by playing
you get ranks 3 in first week, and unlocking one in a day, and spade it on few days of casual playing, or day of intense grind
you get rank 4 in 2 weeks or so, but grind takes fucking forever, and playing stock you get constantly clubbed
you get first rank 5 in about month or 2, then you see RP requirments for parts, and if you still remember you're supposed to have fun, you give up on rank 5.

Emberfire
Emberfire

I only targeted the landing craft because we were outnumbered and unsure if we would win. It's a valid strategy. The other guys held them off while I secured us the win.
The plane performs well as a fighter as long as the enemies are not too high. Generally what I do is rush in, bomb a target, hit ground targets until enemies let themselves be dragged down, then perform horizontal BnZ on them. It's a great plane. Norway is generally the only map where I don't always get player kills, and that's simply because the fight rarely degenerates into a turnfight on the deck like on other maps.

you stupid idiot
Rude.

Burnblaze

On May 30, 1945, Lt. Col. Sarles led an all day multiple PBJ sweep of the Kibawe Trail near Davao. In the morning, his PBJ-1D "MB 7" was hit by AA fire. He and four crew members were KIA. The third pair of PBJs arrived over the area in the afternoon and having been advised that Sarles' PBJ had been lost, began a search, but to no avail. While making runs on their target, my father, 1st. Lt. Doit L. Fish, flying PBJ-1J "MB 11," became missing and was never seen again. He and his seven-member crew, including a passenger, were officially declared MIA.

In November 1956, the aircraft wreckage and skeletal remains were discovered near Carmen. What was left of "MB 11" was strewn over an area of 400-500 feet on a slope about 300 feet from the crest of a mountain peak. Found at the site were two engines, portions of the landing gear, eight .50 caliber machine guns, two .38 caliber revolvers, miscellaneous items, two crewmember’s "dog-tags" and portions of bones.

There should be some kind of reward for getting clean kills. As it is right now, the game rewards you far more if you have shit aim and hit an enemy a bunch of times where it does nothing, than if you just zoom in and take them out in one pass.

Track links aren't a lot of steel at all. They might have quite a fair bit of steel in it when you look down it, but none of it is actual armour nor supported by any other armour. Most rounds would blow apart a track link and carry straight on through to the hull.

Did I claim otherwise?

My point is they shouldn't stop rounds. Someone should have let armor designers know back then the real secret to strong armor isn't thickness, angles or new materials but rather covering the tank in tracks.

Oh wait, they DID try that and in pretty much every study they found that it was useless and didn't or barely increase protection, and most of those studies were during WW2 using old ammunition, newer KE and HEAT ammo should have zero trouble with tracks.

Yet in war thunder tracks consistently and reliably if hit stop rounds that should have no problem dealing with them.

I'm not suggesting they shouldn't be modeled, but they are clearly too strong the way they are now.

Nothings going to survive a direct nuke, but the hull is designed in a way to minimise the risk of getting flipped over by the blast wave, as well as NBC protection. Before both nations had enough nukes for MAD to become a thing, battlefields were predicted to see extensive use of small scale nuclear weapons. It's why shit like nuclear artillery was created.

Of course by the time they got into the latest 50s/60s, nukes had become significantly more powerful and missiles replaced artillery for delivering nuclear payload.

If Slavs had disregarded their 50 ton limit, NATO would've been facing the IS-7 rather than the T-10M by 1950. The same NATO that were still scrambling for a counter to the IS-3, a tank with far worse protection, speed and armament than the IS-7.

I think he meant it as in: why would you bother trying to even fight in a tank if a nuclear war had broken out?

Either large areas of your country/army have just been considerably destroyed, or it's probably about to happen. And you're a target.

The protection from a blastwave is a pointless feature, unless the designers somehow cared about the lives of a tank crew surviving a while longer before a nuclear holocaust had another chance at them.

The Nazis also had much better internal infrastructure than the Soviets had, ie. autobahn.

Methnerd
Methnerd

That's what my posts point was. In the immediate post-war era where both America and Russia had the nuclear bomb, nuclear holocaust wasn't a sure thing from a nuclear conflict. Neither nations had large quantities of megaton weapons, and battlefields were expected to be fought in the prescence of small kiloton nuclear artillery such as the M65 atomic cannon or the 2A3 Kondensator. Stuff like the Davy Crockett was developed as very small man-portable nuclear weapons.

This was outdated fairly quickly because nuclear weapons became increasingly more powerful, and the stockpile of both nations increased to the point where any nuclear conflict would result in the destruction of both countries. Hence, MAD.

But it's not like it was a level playing field, US atomic research and weapons were more developed than those of the Soviets AND they had far more strategic air and naval power. If war broke out in Europe and atomic weapons were used (even the first ones), it would still be redundant to try to continue fighting it in a tank. Developing one that could withstand a blastwave was a waste of time and resources, even at the 'primitive' stages of atomic weaponry. It was a stupid experiment. Even assuming atomic weapons didn't develop in yield, they would in numbers. What use is a memetic tank battalion that survived the first attack and can go on to fight with barely anything else that can only survive by chance?

Armchair generals still think wars would be majorly influenced by marginal differences in vehicles.

You might change a few developments or developmental thoughts in planning (ie the oh no the spooky KV-1s, what we do hans???), but never the outcome.

Only worst-case that comes to mind is if somehow slants intercepted the Enola Gay or said B-29 ran into an issue, which is different than the above anyways. Then whoops, we have an awful slog of a land invasion instead.

You're massively over estimating the power and size of the US nuclear arsenal was in early post-war years. It took until 1952 for them to even test their first megaton nuclear bomb. Like I've been saying, in the time period that tank was being developed in, nuclear weapons weren't certain destruction for all involved.

Really only the central area of the front was the worst in the invasion. Though Belarus etc. is still a huge area to fight over, the Germans predominantly sent armoured advances where they were easiest and best - into flat and open Ukraine in the south, and through Poland and the Baltic States in the north where the Russians conveniently already had infrastructure for sending the Red Army the other way )))))))))))).

CouchChiller
CouchChiller

What says is pretty pertinant.

For a short period following WW2, no matter the differences in each nation's arsenal and capability of nuclear weapons, existed a time in which MAD and victory through nuclear annihilation wasn't possible.

America might have briefly had a big leg-up, but you have to ask yourself how much of a shit the Soviets are going to care about a few civilian losses if threatened, versus how the USA would treat a nuclear attack on their precious, isolated homeland.

We had enough issues with Japan as it was, and their military didn't really care - the emperor had to step in.

RumChicken
RumChicken

No I'm not. I'm not saying that anyone could have rained down nuclear weapons or that there'd be huge devastation, I'm saying that there is no point in developing a hugely expensive tank that can passively withstand an atomic blastwave when these weapons are being proliferated and developed by both sides. It was an experiment, sure, but as the original post implied: there was no point in 1959 to start producing a tank to outfit groups of your army that would enable them to survive some atomic blasts in the distance. Keeping some tank battalions alive is a minor concern when a war has begun between the two superpowers where not only atomic weapons are involved, but huge potential strategic air power.

There's really no point in this, they realised how stupid an idea it was and stopped it from going any further anyway.

For a short period following WW2, no matter the differences in each nation's arsenal and capability of nuclear weapons, existed a time in which MAD and victory through nuclear annihilation wasn't possible.

That's not what I'm saying, I'm saying in a war where atomic weapons are part of the arsenal between the two militarised and global superpowers that are the USA and USSR, having tank battalions being able to survive a blast in the distance is a redundant concern if war were to break out where nuclear weapons were used.

Do crew skills for tanks work regardless of how many crew members you have in a tank?

Like the Charioteer only has a driver, commander, and loader, does it only average the skills for these three positions or does it include the gunner/radio operator in there even though I don't have one?

I'm assuming it takes into account everyone since it would suck to not have any gunner skills on a tank.

Did they make .50 do more damage to ground targets at some point this year? I used to have to close to 300 meters to hurt light pillboxes, but now I can start shooting like 600+ meters out and it's really made it so much easier to ground pound in the F-84.

Nah.

First of all, they basically only said that it is not an impossibility that they'll add destroyers. They've not entertained the possibility of anything larger, and adding destroyers has only been added as a possibility as a result of the instant shitstorm they created with the announcement.

Why they've made the decision to make it boats I have absolutely no idea, because there is no way that they were originally intending it to be limited in such a way.

They've also come up with a number of excuses for why there won't be large ships, most of which (if you actually take them seriously/as unsolvable as Gaijin are taking them) could not be worked with or sorted out for large ships.

The big ones are:
they want air involved too so can't adjust the scale of time or size
they want 'realism' so they can't adjust the scale of speeds and everything else
they don't want 'healthbars', and larger vehicles (such as bombers) make the modular health bars more obvious a game mechanic, so ships would make it look awful
they don't want battles to take a long amount of time (this one is just complete shit)

Assuming you don't actually believe Gaijin that these are unsolvable (and why would you?) and that large ships can't work with War Thunder, then it's irrelevant because your opinion and any possible feedback you could make has and will be drowned out by innumerable people who have already given large sums of money to them for the product they've announced.

Why would Gaijin add any more than they promised in the announcement if it is a financial success (and there is absolutely no reason yet as to why this isn't set to be a financial success)? There's simply no reason to. Saying that they might add destroyers (and let's not forget, that is ALL they said - larger ships than destroyers are not even in the discussion) is simply a carrot on a stick to get more remaining NEETs to hand over their money.

Stupidasole

Also, there is really very little reason to expect anything larger than tiny and dull ships that fit with their small boat deathmatch meta when they already will have entire tech trees and progression of these small boats planned out (just look at how many announcements and hints they dropped over Gamescom about the trees). If you can have late tier meme boats (and you probably will unless there is a drastic change, there's no way they haven't planned out full trees of these things) then how the fuck are they going to include proper ships down a tree?

The first obvious sign that they might add actual ships would be if we were to see a tech tree release/plan and that these boats don't go past T3, but given that there is Cold War shit already then I seriously doubt it's a possibility unless Gaijin change their mind and does naval forces properly.

Sadly, vladimir has spent 6 extra hours a day working on them, so we'll add them as premium for the first 3 months, we're sorry community((((((("

Yeah and what if the WT Player Council and the last few years of truly awful player interaction and community management hadn't happened?

I mean, this is probably a factor (only three of the nations would be balanced historically, and only two of those past 1945), but I genuinely think they just want to milk as much money out of as little content as possible now.

Gaijin is far too big and incompetent as a team, are trying to do far too much, and are failing miserably at all of it. They're probably not even making as much as people would assume they are - they outsource a tonne of development work elsewhere.

As well as Korean and later war stuff so they can draw in the players from AW like me who got tired of that shit game

Then naval can just be boats and later destroyer escorts/cruisers/frigates/corvettes and later destroyers and such.

I don't want them to over-extend themselves. I just want more and more new tanks/planes

Solid AP slug
APC
Solid AP slug with a soft metal (often lead) cap, impedes flight performance, helps with normalization against angles
APCBC
Same as above but with a thin cap to improve flight characteristics
APHE(C/CBC)
Literally take any of the above, remove penetration and add explosive.

And because I know you might ask this in the future
APCR
Solid AP penetrator (often tungsten or similar materials) with a soft metal encasing it, meant to be incredibly lightweight but dense allowing it to attain high speeds for penetration.
APDS
Solid penetrator (Often tungsten) much smaller than the diameter of the barrel with the same idea as the APCR but rather than soft lead it uses a plastic casing to ensure stable movement through the barrel that comes off after it exits the barrel, high velocity
APFSDS (Sometimes called APDS-FS)
Same as above but it has fins so a more stable flight, negatively affected by rifling so tanks firing it often have smooth bores

HE
A big bomb
HEAT
A chemical penetrator that, when it hits, explodes a cone of copper into the side of a tank turning it into essentially plasma and it sprays all over inside the tank spraying molten metal all over the crew/fueltanks/engine/ammo (This is not the case in warthunder, in warthunder it works like APDS that causes shit to catch on fire easier)
HEATFS
See above but with fins to stabilize flight, both HEATFS and HEAT are negatively affected by rifling but by the time we realized this we were past using standard HEAT shells.

HESH
A big fucking round of C4 that hits a tank, molds to the armor, and explodes causing spalling that shoots part of the tank's own armor into the crew (In warthunder it's just really strong HE)

I think that's all of them, aside from the HV shots and all the solid shots the brits get because fuck if I'm going to learn all that bullshit.

"Another important factor that increased fire and hit rates is the development of camaraderie in training. Soldiers are taught that their actions do not only help or harm themselves, but the whole unit.[6][original research?] This recurring theme in recollections collected from war veterans is the idea that they were not fighting for themselves at the time but more concerned for the people to their left and right. This ideology is ancient and was recorded by Sun Tzu in his book The Art of War "If those who are sent to draw water begin by drinking themselves, the army is suffering from thirst."[7]"

Ah perfect example of what I mentioned. Seems training was a big part of why People might have been hesitant.

I was in the Army for a short time and the biggest thing that was drilled in my head was 'The Unit comes first' and to always watch out for the guys next to you.

You should read about the infantryman in the Vietman War. Vietnam is an excellent psychological case study of warfare on human beings because of its brutality and sheer difficulty for one force (plus the fact it's well-documented).

In war (especially wars with devastatingly effective weapons like those since the late 19th C), the biggest challenge an army will face is to ensure their soldiers will actually try to kill the enemy. It's a constant psychological battle from the point of view of the army and the officers, and one that they often lose (look up 'fragging', for instance).

Most military training for infantrymen and those in front-line roles is to ensure that they will simply follow orders while under fire. That's the single most important thing. Killing the enemy is almost irrelevant, so long as you have a group of men who will listen to their officer and do what they tell them and shoot back, it doesn't matter if they just shoot at nothing or deliberately miss or aren't even aiming properly (which is what happens most of the time) - and this is because firstly, just shooting back does have some benefit and effect even if it doesn't injure or kill anyone (suppression and morale), and secondly because to force soldiers to try to kill others if they're not mentally willing to is how you end up with dead officers and dead soldiers. Humans are only capable of doing so much to other humans under orders. It varies in case by case, of course, but getting the maximum effectiveness without breaking the man (ie, trying to force them to do something they are unwilling to do) is the entire point of an officer.

This is also why the most effective warfare now in terms of lethality is using indirect and even mechanical means.

You're describing the E-10, and it's a fucking stupid idea.

Some of the main advantages of tanks:

knock down and drive over obstacles
be able to traverse uneven terrain
have good crew space/weight/power relationship

Sloping that forwards would make all three of those things worse for very little benefit.

Remember, the StuG is an assault gun and was mostly used when either camouflaged and/or hull-down, or used with infantry to destroy implacements and bunkers. None of those things particularly require heavy armour or sloping.

Generally for most tanks (especially German shitboxes), sloping the armour would have a negative effect on crew space and power-to-weight.

If you sloped without adding any space, you add a minor amount more metal (weight) and cut down massively on the crew space.

If you slope with adding space, you add a significant amount more metal and slow the tank down.

For a lot of the German box tanks, both of these were unacceptable (the Tiger I, for instance, could barely move as it is with its weight).

Was it something they did because it was just good at the time combined with whatever doctrine they used and they didn't necessarily need to do any sloping?

There wasn't much need.

Remember that for the most part, German tank design was very linear between tanks and modules. For a tank to be introduced with sloped armour, it would require a pretty extensive redesign of the transmission system, crew space, radio equipment and stowage and shit that they'd been using tried and tested on a LOT of tanks previously.

Tanks like the Pz IV were predominantly for infantry support, and they worked. Assault guns like the StuG were for bringing a gun to a frontline and shooting a bunker or something, and they worked. They could, of course, engage or be engaged by enemy tanks, but it wasn't what they were designed for and it wasn't likely that the survival of that vehicle would be what would destroy an enemy armoured advance. Air support, AT guns, heavy armour, tank destroyers or ambush tactics would all be what they would use against an armoured assault or defence.

So basically what you have are a number of tanks that are good at their jobs, okay at hitting enemy armour (nothing special, certainly), and not good at taking hits from enemy armour. Which is absolutely fine, because the Werhmacht were extensively using close air support and bombing and dedicated heavy armour vehicles (like the Tiger) and tank killing vehicles (like the Jagdpanzers etc.).

To make the Pz IV and StuG and other shitboxes sloped would be to give them a better defence against enemy guns when it would be one of the least practical things to do, because you cut down crew space or make them heavier. And all so they might not get penetrated.

And let's not also forget that getting hit first, regardless if it's penetrating or not, means you are at an immense disadvantage against an enemy tank.

MPmaster
MPmaster

It had decent speed and tracks for its weight, but that weight was atrocious and it was limited quite greatly in where they could move, the fact they required a lot of support in terms of towing, and they were (though it was improved over time) not very reliable and required a lot of maintenance to run well.

And if you made it heavier by making the armour sloped then as a big heavy tank dedicated to creating a breakthrough and shitting on enemy armour, you're greatly limiting it by slowing it down and therefore potentially limiting entire advances.
