How to better balance Russian HAT/LAT

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

As titled.

Just give it PG-7VL, using 500mm penetration + same damage as AT-4(even though it's 93mm warhead vs. AT-4's 84mm) instead of PG-7VM.

Minimum change in model of rocket & scope reticle needed, or just use whatever modders did.


This allows hitting with both rockets(without any kind of damage reduction...etc.) to set any APC/IFV on fire instead of...not.  PG-7VL is ranged out to only 300m so it's actually partially a nerf on its effectiveness at long range, but this allows it more power to defeat vehicles at close range.

Rangefinder of 2.4m is also a lot more useful as that's closer than 2.7m to actual height of M1abrams/leotard2/CR2, and the top of hull of Bradley.

Also, reduce PG-7VR arming distance down to 25m or less, because 40m chokes its effective range(which is barely 300m by aiming with the bottom edge of the scope, with anything beyond 100m being mostly down to luck due to the exaggerated trajectory) way too much and has no basis on reality.
2.4m height rangefinder will help make it less luck-dependent in hitting mid range shots.

According to tradoc, it only has 5m arming distance IRL for the early version.

Then nerf AT-4/ILAW muzzle velocity down to 225m/s(which is the real AT-4 CS muzzle velocity).
