BMP-3M Disabling Own 30mm

Recommended Posts

I've just noticed on larger maps, when BMP-3s are really lobbing those 100mm rounds downrange, they are receiving "hits" that only disable their 30mm guns, and without taking return fire. I'm guessing at high elevations the vehicle is shooting itself. In my last battle on a huge map, with a full battalion, about 50% had damage only to their 30mm guns, and those were the vehicles that had engaged the most at long ranges.

That does not sound correct. I am not sure I am following your description fully. Do you have a game save or could you make one showing this?

I can certainly try to repeat it. What happened was, BMP-3s engaged the enemy at nearly 2000m, well outside of any return fire. During the course of this engagement, about half of the BMPs suffered damaged only to their 30mm guns, without taking fire.

Is this only an issue with the BMP-3M? I have not noticed this happening with regular BMP-3s, and I've taken them for a spin on a few large maps before.

Have you been able to figure out at what range and beyond this begins to happen? If so, should be pretty easy to replicate in tests. That way, a proper bug report can be made and sent up.

Hmm, it could be that the ERA is getting in the way somehow. That, combined with the fact that BF doesn't model gun depression angles could be the culprit. Could be that in real life, the ERA prevents the barrel from being elevated to that degree, but in the game there is no such limitation. Just spitballing.

BMP-3s will occasionally shoot their own 30mm gun barrels!

OK colour me stupid if you want but shoots them with what?

Are you saying the 100mm HE rounds are damaging the 30mm gun or is it ATGMs what? And not I cannot check this instant cuase - on my mobile. :)Clearly I can load up a test at some point and report this - unless someone else beats me to it which BTW is highly likely because I am probably not going to get time to try anything in game until Monday or Tuesday.

If you have a saved game already handy that will make things even faster...
