Artillery is ready but it will take it 9 minutes even with the TRPs. Its also limited to only 3 units in use at the same time.

So in effect that means it is smarter to keep a continuous harass barrage going than emptying it fast, since then it will take another 9 minutes to setup a new barrage.

We're still at it. Managed to kill the first NATO armour, a stryker with a shilka!

All t72s gone. These variants are pretty much blind to begin with, but then you add green crews to the mix....

I found that T72s need to be “open” for better situational awareness. Doesn’t really help against air, but maybe a little vs javelin chuckers.

Did he bleed? Sure. Not in any way enough to stop him though. The one shilka left is out of ammo. 2000 rnds gone in a flash.

Are the optics on a T72 really that crappy?
I'm sure the green tankers make it worse, but I ran some tests, of T72s vs the Brit tanks, and found that they can easily win a 1 v 1 head-on duel provided they have pre-knowledge of the opfor unit. They also need to hit it below the turret. I achieved the pre-knowlege with close by scouts (probably any unit will do, and alternatively by dismounting the tank crew so they could see for themselves. Ran them back into their tank, drove into LOS with my hatch open, and more often than not got the kill. Transferring this to a live battlefield with lots of opfor units is problematic, but if you can find a keyhole with LOS, and/or a hull down position to fire from, I'm sure it will work. They just gotta know the other guy is there before they engage.

There was pre knowledge of the enemy. Didnt matter in the slightest. Remeber I have green crews too. My shilkas however spots everything.

Tactical victory for syrians. We won. Now the umpire might have to look this over first.
