Other Tanks in Alpha 12

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With Alpha 12 we are introduced with tanks and many other amazing stuff, but so far we have only seen the Abrams in the most recent recaps and no other mention of tanks. Do you guys think we will not be seeing the Russian T72 and British Challenger in Alpha 12 or are they holding back a few surprises for us until Play test/Release of Alpha 12 like they did with Alpha 11 by giving us IFV's? Any thoughts on this? Devs if you can answer this if possible.

From my understanding the abrams is currently their prototype in engine. The T72 etc are prepared as assets out of engine but will not be ported into the game until they "finalize" the abrams, that way they avoid doing everything from scratch with each tank. I believe the T72 and abrams will roll out in the same patch.

Gotcha, makes sense. I hope we do get the British Challenger though in Alpha 12. 9_9

We did show off the T72B3 a little bit ago: https://joinsquad.com/readArticle?articleId=289

 

It's a little special to us, being one of the first models we were able to 3D scan and implement ourselves. You can check out that trip here: https://joinsquad.com/readArticle?articleId=163

 

Tanks have been a long time coming and we cannot wait to get 'em live!

The Challenger will definitely be added to the British Forces, but it will not make it into V12.

Well...rats! Will it be in a later patch like 12.1 or V.13?

I seen those recaps before, but was just surprised we didn't see the T72 or British Challenger in action in the newest recaps. At'least I know why now though.

Rest in Peace Britain. And Russia still won't have a proper IFV so they're still dead in armor battles.

Yuri join mod discord get a team together and develop the vehicle and get it in the game.  It's an option.

>learn 3d modelling and/or programming to develop a vehicle which will come in time anyway

I'm sure the layers will be balanced with the armour imbalance in mind.

 

Plus, T-72s are much cheaper and lighter than Abrams so they don't need to be given equal numbers in armour layers.

The last time a community member modeled a vehicle wanting it to be put in the game, it ended up being all for naught anyway.

Don't quote me but the Challenger is likely to be added in a major version upgrade and is not a small patch asset.

Alas they don't currently  right now have an IFV but it is on the plan.

 

To make up for it for now, Russian infantry have far superior infantry capabilities with their Tandem RPG.

 

Both US HAT and Russian IFV are in the pipeline.

Just found a really nice video of US Marines showing off the M1 Abrams and has really good quality audio and video.
