dieseltaylor Posted April 3, 2012 Share Posted April 3, 2012 Since Version ! I have been a bit peeved with the modelling of the vehicles in terms of terms of speed. I had thought that having correct speeds was a fairly fundamental part of the game. BF respondedd to a degree by having vehicles reverese more slowly than going forward though this seems to have been done generically rather than relating to individual tanks. Following the release of CW I have played with the Daimler II armoured car which is pretty speedy doing a flying 2 kilometres in 2 minutes so roughly 60kph/42mph. More impressively the speed builds over time with increasing speed at the first few 250metre marks. In reverse it takes roughly 4:40 for a kilometre which I think works out to the generic figure of 5-6 mph. There seems to be no difference whether the turret is facing forwards or back. One might think there should be. Anyway the Daimler II has two drivers facing opposite ways and a 5 speed gearbox which allows it to travel equally fast in either direction. A very neat trick used in a lot of armoured cars to get them out of trouble speedily. I think BF need to fix this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daimler_Armoured_Car 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
