  1. I was recently looking at the Japanese wikipedia page for the Chi-Ha tank, and it had this section on the name of the tank: I have never heard of such nomenclature, and obviously I don't have access to such documents since I don't live in Japan. There is no reference for this part, so can anyone confirm that they actually did use "MTK" etc.?
  2. Maybe I'm thinking of SB. There is a mode where tanks with no rangefinder don't get that ability.
  3. It's not very useful in Arcade, it's more for Realistic Battles. You basically have to bind a button for it, but in RB, you press that button and a timer bar will appear. When the bar finishes, you will get a range reading on your target. How accurate and how long the rangefinding is depends on your gunner's rangefinding skill. Of course, not all tanks have this, only those with rangefinders, like the T-64A, M103, Conqueror, the M47/M48 Pattons, etc.
  4. The V-2 is not derived from an aircraft diesel engine as far as I know. However, the 5TD family was designed by Aleksandr Charomskiy, and it is related to the Soviet Charomskiy M-30 and M-40 aircraft diesel engines. They were in turn inspired by the Junkers Jumo 205. The M-30/ACh-30 would eventually be made workable on the Yermolayev Yer-2 by the end of the war, but by that time jet engines and turboprops were coming into service and there was very little point in continuing to invest in diesel engines for aircraft.
  5. Arcade is very heavily biased towards heavy tanks due to the premium it places on being able to push and withstand fire, while it doesn't favour TDs with no armour due to the retarded constant-spotting LoS mechanic
  6. AFAIK, SS.11, 9M14, Type 64, and Swingfire are all MCLOS. Only HOT, Konkurs, Drakon, and the Shillelagh are SACLOS
  7. Do you play that in RB as well? I think the SS.11 is MCLOS in RB.
  8. I know they nerfed RP gains in Ground Forces, but that's just ridiculous
  9. This is an interesting paper on the contagious/viral nature of shootings: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0117259
