    Seriously? Low effort posting much?  Wanna be a bit more specific with your question, with actual sentence structure so we know what the fuck you are talking about.

     

    My mistake. I forget to write frontal.

    What are you even asking?  All modern tanks have limited protection on the sides compared to the front.  It's a simple function of geometry and weight.

    I mean frontal, yes, but even frontal arc, Chinese design seems unsuited! Armor array is designed in such a way that either the interior is awful or the weakness is exposed in the frontal 60* arc.

     

    I realize Russian design is only frontal 60*, NATO include the sides, but China does not. Frontal array is thick but does not cover wider aspect. Like Russian/Soviet & NATO.

    Let’s try to be a little nicer and/or forgiving.

     

    But if peasant could make the question clearer, that would be welcome. 

    Thanks for kindness

    In the WT version, does the driver have to take periodic vomit breaks due to motion sickness?

    No. In WT such considerations are not relevant.

     

    Although there is a certain disdain for making the Soviet tech tree more historically accurate by not openly gimping their ammo selection.

  3. WT's MBT-70 has lots of controversy.

     

    > Some claim the 152mm gun could actually achieve it's listed APFSDS penetration

     

    > Some claim the loader could feed the gun a missile every 5 seconds

     

    Are these false?

     

     

    I recall reading some material stating that because the 152mm did not have any indication of being able to fire the projectile, a ported 105mm sabot, at any greater power than the L7.

  4. Is German tank inferiority in France a myth, overblown, or real?

     

    Pz II, 38t, Pz I, (and heavier) Pz III, are more mobile (in terms of fuel range) than their French counterparts?

     

    Why does the Pz III get such a bad rep in wehraboo circles?

  5. I was thinking cheaper, easier to make, exceptionally low requirements for production, designed for fire support missions instead of anything else.

     

    Such as how the ASU-57 uses many civilian parts, such a light tank would re-use parts from past turreted light tanks, possibly just rob the hull outright, then fit in a great big infantry support gun.

    Already done on a larger scale.

    The downsides are - "Your traverse and elevation is absurdly limited". (Unless you want a Churchill GC)

    You are forcing yourself into a defensive stance. (Tanks with DP guns, like the M4 medium are better on the advance than the defense, in that they are allowed more gun mobility).

     

    Casemate "tanks" are for the most part acts of desperate compromise.  You are either trying to save money, or work with what you have.

    It isn't worth the greater firepower since the machine is no longer capable of firing from many positions a turreted tank would, and presents a larger? Profile when doing so?

     

    The smaller size and much reduced weight results in a poorly armored platform or less poorly armored & slow at once? Making it vulnerable to enemy gunfire and more of a target?

     

    But when engaging from prepared positions, it is little more than an expensive gun that happens to move and sort of protect itself?

  7. I feel enamored with the possibility of fitting a fairly powerful gun onto a light tank, without making it an especially big light tank.

    But not in an open top tank destroyer configuration. Simply, designed around a casemate.

     

    For example, a Pz II with a widened hull structure, to support a 50 millimeter gun.

     

    In a manner similar to but not the same as the ASU-57, ASU-85; precluding the air drop requirement. Targeting the use of a fairly common gun, (for Soviets an F-34?)

     

    True you could not stabilize the gun, nor could you make it a long barreled gun, but it should be a fairly effective infantry support vehicle?

     

    It would not require significant expense (being small for an LT & conservative), it could not carry too large a gun in fear of it's inferiority in function, but it would significantly outgun it's counterparts. FCS would not be the greatest concern? Because it would operate to support infantry.

    Wow guys, everything I say is wrong and low energy and sad, and I didn't realize that saying such idiotic nonsense would win me an invitation to a Brett Kavanaugh style frathouse rape party.  I will try to do better in the future, and back up my statements with reasoned arguments from primary sources instead of making up on-the-fly ad-hoc nonsense and rationalizations.

    Also, I promise to throw away my Kancolle IJN Yamato fuck pillow.  I guess... I've realized I need to grow up.  I don't need that anymore.

    It would be nice if you didn't use my account when you posted your joke.
