  1. I want the boomerang . Big improvement and way more survivable. Can probably withstand the 40mm heat grenades of US infantry at least.
  2. Thanks. So basically its the T-90AM in the game. Good guess Battlefront !
  3. Looking at the video, when they install back the turret it seems to have a shiny and unpainted new gun compared to the T-90A we briefly see untouched at 0:08. So good chance its the new 2A82 that has way more muzzle velocity and can fire the greatly improved ammo Vacuum-1-2. Question is, at 900mm long , can they fit the needed autoloader in that turret ? Probably not. But still, the increased muzzle velocity if the gun could increase the penetration ability of the svinets-2 round by a fair margin.
  4. This interesting video is showing T-90As being modernized to T-90M standards. So it has started. I Do not know if its the version Battlefront introduced in the game or the better one announced in the media which sports the new gun from the Armata and can fire the new Grifel round which is claimed to penetrate 900-1000mm at 2000 meters. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=680228372164921&id=428343390686755
  5. Kornet crews are trained to aim over a Target and AT the last minute to move the beam on the Target .. so the Target is not tipped off by the laser. Something we dont see in CMBS . This and tank crews not lasing targets at under 1500 meters since its point and shoot with 100% probability at that range .
  6. Its the B3M ... With the panoramic thermal for the commander and full Relikt coverage . They are supposed to be for the new organic tank compagnies of VDV. So you should see T-72B3-M with commander's panoramic thermal sight and full Relikt ERA ( including the turret) in a future VDV module for CMBS unless Battlefront believes otherwise. The ones you saw at the parade represent the new standard for all current and future t-72b3 modifications which are still ongoing. Relikt on the sides and old K-5 on the front of the turret. They are stand-ins until the units get reequipped with Armatas s
  7. Those are not T-72B3M. They are T-72B3 MOD 2016. The ones with the panoramic thermal sight for the commander are B3Ms or B4s. They are to be deployed but only 150 of them for now.
  8. Maybe they Will be fielded in small numbers and you are right. CMBS is not wwii and historical accuracy and OOB realism is less important. Its what if. I would like these versions available in a family extension pack with educated guesses as to capabilities. Much like the Abrams has LWR , ERA and Trophy in the game. I want to explore what added capabilities it would bring the Russians. I dont care much about the real world. On a tactical level they would Make a difference in some part of the Battlefield which is the focus of CMBS.
  9. Good source but some errors . The T-72b3-M or B4's panoramic independent sight for the commander does have its own thermal sight comparable in performance to the SOSNA-U. The panoramic sight's designation is PK-PAN and you can Google it.
  10. Russia and Belarus are military allies and have a mutual defense pact. Thus Russia has troops and airbases in Belarus since many years.
  11. Using infantry to screen tanks Will prevent huge losses to tanks near built up areas (grosnyy style) but you Will still lose some tanks. Losing 10-15 tanks out of a hundred is okay . This is what's happening to the Turks. Also There is not Much you can do against well hidden infiltrated ATGM teams sniping from 3-4km. You Will lose tanks good Tactics or not. Thats where tech comes in It can prevent normally unavoidable losses some of the Times but it wont save you from bad Tactics or deployment.APS would have saved those tanks and revealed the launcher so it can be destroyed by R
  12. that could have been a hard or firepower kill. Lower and it would have been pretty much a gun mount hit and the Kornet has a decent chance against that weak point.
  13. You can simulate combat in a Chemical or nuclear environment by making Troops unfit or weakened and making them all Green. That should Do it.
  14. Hi Vlad, what's Up ? Just telling you I was involved in a major argument in the " new vehicule family" thread and there was a lot of Russia bashing. They are hopeless to be polite. A post talking about the T-90M went very bad. They dont take the russian Military seriously and I believe IT shows in the game. Bunch if proto-facist if you want my opinion. I'm leaving the forums since anything balanced is not respected here. So God speed to you and may Russia emerge victorious. The world needs it to be freed from the "exceptional nation". Let's hope we avoid nuclear war, Trump wont last long.

  15. Yes to Carl Gustav, yes to Avenger Stingers vehicules and also the 30 mm cannon striker.
  16. A T-90M as described here would be a very serious threat to an Abrams in the GAME and in a tactical setting. Gee, well employed the actual russian tanks are useful. You guys seem to think i'm talking on strategic level here. That new gun with the new ammo would ensure frontal kills against the Abrams in the game under (let be conservative here) 1500 meters and the Malackit ERA would help the tank survive the first hit more often than relikt. I dont care about Operational numbers or what would happen on a strategic level. I care about the tactical level which is the focus of this game. I'm wel
  17. The Russian MOD is often divided over what to do and always has been. In fact, it is not monolitic in his thinking and there is power struggles on the inside about what to do. Even Putin is not the all powerful supervillain you think he is. He must deal with bureaucratic opposition, friction and yes, corruption. So plans change, are being modified to placate a certain faction, compromises are made. It's not : you do as I say or else... He may wish it so, but there were many instances where he was blocked and frustrated on the inside for good reasons or less noble ones (like corruption).
  18. Because they changed their minds.. Relations with the west deteriorated since and now the T-72B3, which was planned in the late 2000s and was considered adequate at the time to fight near abroad enemies is now considered inadequate in the context of the possibility of a shooting war with NATO assets now stationed on Russia's western borders (whatever their intentions... militaries dont deal with intentions but with capabilities) . Thus the additional modernization to a much higher standard because the threat has changed. The PERCEIVED threat has changed, there is now more impetus to up
  19. Nope i know the difference.. demo charges / real engineers..
  20. as for the Sputnik report about the T-90M... it quotes a military expert with close ties to the MOD Alexei Leonkov who was interviewed for Zvezda TV, which is the military channel run by the Russian ministry of defense.
  21. T-72B3M has relikt, new engine, fully modern FCS and panoramic sight for the commander no ? They already received around 25-50 in service. The first upgrade was badly received and they are trying to correct. Here's the tank and confirmation that 150 are going to be upgraded http://www.armyrecognition.com/russia_russian_army_tank_heavy_armoured_vehicles_u/t-72b3m_t-72b4_main_battle_tank_technical_data_sheet_specifications_pictures_video_12003163.html
  22. At least they added the panoramic sight for the commander with thermals on the M version LOL less disastrous. They have a few in service . The malachit ERA and the new gun are a must for that tank. Afghanit less so. It will probably be dropped to reduce cost. The Armata program is delayed. So they need toi upgrade existing tanks for the interim.
  23. No new gun ? No Malackit ERA ? No afghanit ? Did you read something on russian or are you just deducting from the picture ? Maybe the tank shown in the picture is a stripped version ?
  24. They wont lie about new equipment and procurement plans. Capabilities sure. The russians announced it on the MOD site but in russian. Do you believe the department of defense in the US when they announce new stuff and procurement plans ? Same thing here. As for sabot .. they did not say which kind. Read the article (Us source, no propaganda *wink wink*) .Proven would mean combat. They wont model anything for the game if everything needs to be "proven". Even if its only effective 30% of the time, it can still have an effect on survivability. Relikt is moderately effective against the M829
  25. I was saying a couple of days ago that the T-90M selected by the Russian army to replace the T-90A (all 400 of them will be upgraded) will use the new 125mm A82 gun from the armata and Malackit ERA (more effective than Relikt against APFDS, Will probably defeat more often the M829A4). It is way superior to the T-90AM in the game. With Vacuum-1 rounds It will punch through 950mm-1000mm or armor at 2000 meters. It will also have the afghanit APS as standard equipment. Afghanit has sucessfully intercepted sabot rounds on tests. Here's the confirmation . https://sputniknews.com/military/2017
