30mm 2a42 vs 2a72

Recommended Posts

Second topic for today. Now let's talk about 30mm automatic cannons.

The 2a42 has gas operated system which allows it to change rate of fire from ~200-300 to 550 RPM. It has better accuracy then 2a72. Used on BMP-2, BMD-2, BMD-3, Mi-28, Ka-52 (and YOUR MTLB 30mm)

The 2a72 has long recoil operation system with fixed to 300-330 RPM. And it's used on BMP-3, BMD-4, BMD-4M, BTR-80A, BTR-82A. 

 

So we have in game two types of 30mm autocannons which has the same accuracy, same ROF which is much lower then IRL. Before you say:"It was made to keep balance in game." I want to ask... If you made it for balance, shouldn't you make SVD even to M110 (which will include same "returning-crosshair-back-to-target) and M4's ROF even to AK-74?

1. MT-LB has 2A72 cannon in game, as in real life.

2. Instead of creating two separate topics on the generally same subject, you could use search function and find all answers you need.

My impression is that there is no actual widespread use of a 30mm mtlb at all
