    War Thunder

    Post  Walther von Oldenburg on Wed Jan 23, 2019 4:47 pm

    Who here's playing it except me? It's like WOT + World of Warplanes + World of Warships at the same time but semi-realistic rather than arcade. Recently helos were added.

    This game is a world in itself, it deserved a thread separate from other video games.

    The thing I didn't like about WOT was that they made stuff up for game play purposes...

    Personally I think they should have used scale instead of changing the performance...

    WOT also ignores the enormous contribution ground troops makes to tank warfare...

    Play War Thunder then. Razz It does not have many of WOT's unrealistic features - no aiming reticles, no hitpoints, generally realistic armor and ammo performance (bar overperforming APHE and underperforming APCR). You can play 3 modes depending on level of realism you like etc etc. Certain balancing issues do exist but no making stuff up as in WOT.

    Why is armor on M1A1 so weak? Protection analysis shows that DM33 and 3BM42 both go through M1A1s turret like hot knife through butter, even in an area where its the thickest.

    M829 on the other hand struggles with T-80U, Leo 2A5 and Chally 2
