Armored Warfare: UPDATE 0.21 Notes - Russian Server

I debated whether to post this since it the Russian Server notes, and by the time NA/EU see the patch there could be changes.  However I feel it good read anyway. -armedbushido


MINIMALISTIC HANGAR

Now when you start the game for all users, with enabled low graphics settings, a minimalist hangar is turned on by default, which will raise the FPS in the hangar. Switch back is possible in the "Settings" menu.

ECONOMY

Earlier in the article " Developer Diary: game economy " described the changes that took effect in version 0.21. 
  • The rules for dropping containers in the "Collision" mode are adjusted taking into account the new rules for charging rewards.
  • Now the reward for intelligence is given also in the event that the detected goal loses its direct visibility with the one who "lit up" it.
  • Now the fact of detection is only the first fact of finding the enemy in battle.
  • Changes in the formula for calculating loans in awards in PvP:
  • Now the fact of detection is only the first fact of finding the enemy in battle.
  • Changes in the formula for calculating loans in awards in PvP:
    • The basic reward (before taking into account the level and multipliers) for the unit of damage in PvP is increased by 50% - up to 1.5 credits for 1 unit of damage;
    • Players no longer receive credits for the destruction of the tank and for fire support in PvP;
    • The basic reward for the fact of detection in PvP is reduced to 108 credits;
    • When winning a PvP, a basic reward is added - 1,728 credits - and the multiplier is withdrawn to credits.
  • The base value of the reputation gained for destroying the enemy is increased to 56. Players no longer receive an additional reward in PvP:
    • For the destruction of crew members;
    • For setting up smoke screens;
    • For the destruction of nodes;
    • For assistance in destruction;
    • For a series of destruction / detection / destruction with the help of the player.
All these changes are aimed at making the system of calculating rewards more simple, and the reward for the loss is more significant.
EQUIPMENT

NEW TECHNOLOGY

The new version of the Polish and Czech tanks
  • BMS 6th level BVP Šakal. The project of improvement of licensed copies of BMP-2, which were in service with the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
  • BMS of the 7th level KTO Rosomak. Polish licensed copy of the Finnish Patria. It is characterized by a modular layout, modern fire control systems and a warning about laser irradiation.
  • BMS of the 8th level KTO Rosomak M1. Modification KTO Rosomak, created for the fighting in Afghanistan. Equipped with composite screens, improved communication system and video cameras.
  • LT of the 9th level WPB Anders. Experimental light tank, designed and built by the Polish company OBRUM.
  • IT level 10 Wilk XC-8. Modification of the fire support Wilk. It features a more powerful 120-mm gun, a lightweight tower structure and increased security.
Added a tank in the branch of the Chinese supplier
8-level OBT of Type 99.
OBT 7th level Type 98 renamed to 9910 - this index was worn by the pre-series version of Type 99, presented in 1999 at the parade. A number of Western sources called it "Type 98".

IMPORTANT CHANGES

  • Fixed bugs due to which identical tanks had different masking values ​​(for example, FV721 Fox and FV721 Fox Shark).
  • Significantly improved the invisibility of all IT.
  • Slightly improved invisibility of all BMS.
  • Reduced invisibility of LT.
  • Reduced the invisibility of some of the MBT.
  • The PL-01 tank has been significantly redesigned:
    • The stability of the armor to the caliber is reduced, and to cumulative - increased.
    • The armorpipe of the improved BPSS has been increased to 780 units.
    • The tank receives a drum-type automatic reel with a drum for 6 shots. The time between shots is 2.7 seconds, the recharge of the drum is 18 seconds without the possibility of recharging.
    • The spread has been reduced to 0.085.
    • Improved armor was replaced with the new technology "active camouflage ADAPTIV": + 30% to invisibility, if the tank stands motionless for more than 3 seconds.
    • The base value of invisibility is reduced to 24%. "Active camouflage ADAPTIV" allows a stationary tank to receive an additional bonus to camouflage, both from bushes, even if they are not. Technologically, this is provided by the fact that the system is capable of simulating the thermal profile of arbitrary objects, and the tank actually merges with the terrain in the infrared range. In the game, this is realized through an additional masking bonus, similar to the one the tank receives from the bushes. In this case, bushes can additionally increase this bonus, but not more than the maximum allowed value - 45%. The enemy's thermal imager does not reduce the masking bonus from active camouflage.

HARDWARE CHANGES

  • The description of the equipment has been changed.
  • Most of the equipment has become cheaper. When selling equipment, the player will be compensated for 75% of its value. The difference in the cost of equipment already purchased will also be compensated to the players.
  • The Starter + Generator node has been replaced by Thermal Screens. The characteristics of the node will remain the same.
  • In VBL Ingwe and FV721 Fox node "Kevlar Reach" is replaced by "Enhanced Suspension", and in Wiesel HOT - on "Thermal Screen".
  • The equipment "Adaptive optics" and "Radiopagoschayuschee coverage" was moved from the category "Mobility" to the category "Equipment".
  • Redesigned bonus node "Kevlar Reach": now instead of reducing the damage it takes, it increases the strength of the tank. For OBT, the bonus will be 250 strength units, for other classes - 150.
  • The "Reinforced Counterfeit" equipment has been replaced by "Additional Protection" and instead of reducing all damage received, it will only reduce collision damage, as well as provide additional protection for the crew. Damage from ramming and damage to crew members will be reduced by 25 and 50%, respectively, depending on the level of equipment.
  • BMP-3M: "Kevlar counterfeit" is added.
  • Significantly increased the bonus to strength of the equipment "Enhanced combat" and "Reinforced running":
    • "Enhanced combat laying" lvl. 1 increases the strength of the boa constriction by 25%, "Enhanced combat laying" lvl. 2 - by 50%;
    • "Reinforced running" ur. 1 increases the strength of caterpillars and wheels by 20%, and "Reinforced running" ur. 2 - by 40%.

Accuracy
  • A mass correction of the OBR accuracy was carried out to increase the diversity between the tanks.
  • The family of "Leopards" now has the most accurate MSA among single-level MBTs.
  • Changing the accuracy of the machines:
    • Challenger 1: 0.11 → 0.128;
    • Challenger 2: 0.1 → 0.11;
    • Leopard 2AV: 0.13 → 0.12;
    • Leopard 2A4: 0.114 → 0.11;
    • Leopard 2A4 Evolution: 0.11 → 0.105;
    • Leopard 2A5: 0.11 → 0.105;
    • Leopard 2A6: 0.1 → 0.09.
    • M60A1: 0.132 → 0.152;
    • M1 Abrams: 0.13 → 0.124;
    • M1A1: 0.114 → 0.122;
    • M1A2: 0.11 → 0.117;
    • M1A2 Sep v. 3: 0.1 → 0.115;
    • T-72A: 0.155 → 0.13;
    • T-80B: 0.13 → 0.126;

  • Also increased the aiming time for modern large-caliber guns (130 mm, 140 mm) and elongated medium-caliber guns (120 mm L / 55):
    • Leopard 2A6: increased the aiming time for the L / 55 gun: 1.8 → 2.2 seconds.
    • Leopard 2AX: increased the aiming time for the experimental 130-mm gun: 1.8 → 2.4 seconds.
    • XM1A3: increased the aiming time for the experimental 140-mm gun: 2.3 → 2.5 seconds.
Armament and shells
  • The mechanics of the BFS have been revised. Now, when calculating the penetration of the BFS, the angle of hit at the time of meeting with the armor will not be taken into account if this angle is less than 60 degrees. If the angle of impact is more than 60 degrees, the effective thickness of armor for BFS will increase. The angle of detonation of the BFS is increased to 85 degrees. Damage in the penetration of thick armor decreases more strongly, however, when penetrating a thin armor, you can inflict considerable damage. Also, damage greatly decreases when detonating the projectile at a distance from the armor: when the BFS detonates at a distance of 25 cm from the main armor, the projectile does not inflict damage. The fragmentation fragmentation sector is enlarged upon penetration. If earlier this sector was 15 degrees, now it is increased to 45. The BFS became stronger to hit the crew and inner knots, but became more sensitive to the angle of encounters with the armor.
  • Correction of armor-piercing OFS. Now the armor-piercing OFS is directly proportional to the caliber of the gun: the larger the caliber, the thicker the obstruction can be pierced.
  • Corrected the damage and penetration of all the cumulative ammunition in the game. Now the damage corresponds to the calibrated formula, and the penetration corresponds to the technological level of the projectile. As a result of such a rebalancing, some tanks received very powerful cumulates.
  • The cumulative projectiles corrected the response parameters when interacting with anti-cumulative screens.
  • Historically, Stingray 1 and 2 used the first-stage combat layout, similar to the LAV-600. One shell was in the trunk, and another 3 were located directly next to the gun for rapid loading. This feature of the "Stingreys" is reflected in the game, and now they have the mechanics of the first-stage combat gear: a 4-round cassette with a time between shots of 3 seconds and a recharge of the cassette in 22 seconds.
  • Challenger 2: damage from the 140-mm gun is increased to 800 units. The rate of fire is slightly increased. The aiming time is increased to 2.3 seconds. Since all 130- and 140-mm guns at the 10th level significantly increased damage, the cost of shells for them also increased.
  • M8 Buford: recharge time reduced from 6.2 to 5.5 seconds. 
  • Thunderbolt II: recharge time reduced from 8 to 5.5 seconds.
  • Added alternative gun with automatic drum loading system on M1128 Stryker. It has a drum for 9 projectiles, recharge time is 14 seconds, the time between shots is 4.2 seconds.
  • The aiming time of the FV4201 Chieftain 900 is reduced from 2.6 to 2.3 seconds.
  • The recharge time of the T-72B3 is reduced from 9.9 to 8.5 seconds and now corresponds to T-90A.
  • The aiming time of the T-72B3 was reduced to 2 seconds to match the parameters of the T-90MS equipped with the same SOS.
  • The rate of the T-90A, T-90MS and T-14 "Armata" tanks is significantly increased. The recharge time of T-90A and T-90MS was reduced from 10 to 8.5 seconds, while the T-14 "Armata" was reduced from 9.2 to 8 seconds.
  • The damage of improved BPSS from T-14 "Armata" was reduced from 720 to 700 units, from T-90MS - from 680 to 660 units.
  • In the M60-2000, the damage to BOPS is increased to 570 units.
  • Fixed a bug due to which the characteristics of identical shells Leopard 1A5 and Leopard 2AV, as well as Leopard 2A4 and Leopard 2A4 Evolution differed.
  • The damage of shells on Leopard 2AX is increased to 725-750 units and now corresponds to 130 mm. The spread has been reduced to 0.08.
  • Now XM1A3 can use 2 cannons at the player's choice: 120mm or 140mm. Both tools are available immediately and do not require unlocking. 140-mm gun: 800 damage, 720 mm penetration, 11 seconds recharge, aiming time 2.5 seconds, range 0.115. 120mm cannon: 590 damage, 800mm penetration (new shell for 120mm cannon: M829E4), range 0.1, aiming time 1.6 seconds, automatic loader FastDraw (cassette for 2 shots, time between shots - 2 seconds, recharging the cassette - 12 seconds). The speed of rotation of the tower is increased to 36 deg / sec.
  • The recharge time of the cassette of the 120mm XM1A3 gun is increased to 14 seconds.
  • Since the M1128 MGS was actually equipped with a drum type charging automaton, he received an alternative gun with a drum recharging mechanism (a 5-shot drum without recharging). The time between shots is 5 seconds, recharging the drum is 18 seconds.
  • M8 Buford: fixed interface display of projectile M393A1.
  • BMP-3M-125 "Dragoon":
    • The damage of improved BPSS is increased to 640 units.
    • The rate of fire is increased to 8 rounds per minute, the aiming time is reduced from 1.9 seconds to 1.33 seconds, the accuracy of the gun is increased from 0.11 ° to 0.09 °.
  • For BMP-3, BMP-3M and BMD-4: the rate of 100-mm guns (land mines and ATGMs) BMP-3 and BMD-4 was raised to 9 rounds per minute, BMP-3M - up to 10 rounds per minute. In addition, the landmines were reinforced as part of the general processing of ammunition. Switching between the gun and the gun is reduced to 0.25 seconds. This will allow these machines to outperform other BMMs in DPM and the speed of switching between guns, while they will have a relatively weak automatic cannon and a small unobtrusiveness. 
  • SPHINX: the penetration of the best automatic cannon BOPS is increased to 200 mm, switching between the ATGM and the cannon is now 0.25 seconds. The interval between the launches of ATGMs is reduced from 2 to 1.5 seconds, simultaneously in flight there can be two missiles. This should improve the effectiveness of a weakly protected machine against armored opponents with KAZ.
  • The loss of accuracy in firing from Warrior and M2 Bradley is noticeably reduced - this will reflect the manufacturability of their automatic cannons. In addition, they can now issue the next ATGM without waiting for the previous one.
  • The interval between shots of the T-15 "Barbaris" antitank missile was reduced to 1 second, earlier it was higher than that of BMPT-72. The accuracy of the automatic cannon is also slightly increased when firing BOPS.
  • PL-01: The correct name of the gun for the tank is indicated.
  • The mechanics of the operation of the Expeditionary Tank is changed: there will still be nine projectiles in the cassette, but the recharge interval will be increased to 4.2 seconds. The recharge time of the cassette is reduced to 14 seconds.
  • The number of loaded ATGMs on the machines has been increased:
    • BMP-3M up to 40 pcs .;
    • Begleitpanzer 57 to 40 pcs .;
    • SPHINX up to 30 pcs .;
    • CRAB up to 30 pcs .;
    • FV721 Fox up to 30 pcs .;
    • XM800T up to 30 pcs.
  • The M41 Walker Bulldog is reprocessed:
    • Significantly increased accuracy;
    • The possibility of recharging the cassette is removed;
    • The recharge time of the cassette is reduced to 14 seconds.
  • The accuracy of BCS and PT-76 FS is slightly reduced.
  • The WPB Anders tank was equipped with a drum-type charging device for 6 rounds without the possibility of recharging. The time between shots is 2.7 seconds, recharging the drum - 16 seconds.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the shooting of the remaining ones to be blocked when one of the weapon types was destroyed.
  • The damage of OFS 2C1 "Carnation" is increased to 560 units.
  • Fixed a bug due to which the recharge time of MBT-70 and Type 90-II was displayed incorrectly when the ATGM was installed in the first cell. 
  • Fixed the speed of the flight of shells on the T-series tanks, to exclude the situation when the same shot on different tanks has a different initial speed.
  • The flight speed of the improved T-72 BOPS was increased to 1,750 m / s.
  • Fixed the type of a cumulative projectile on a number of tanks. Shells DM12, DM12A1 and M830 are now listed as cumulative-fragmentation.
  • Fixed a bug due to which the characteristics of COS DM12A1 differed on different tanks.
  • The names of the B1 Centauro 120 and PL-01 projectiles have been fixed.
  • To better match the real prototype of the LAHAT ATGM, the homing capability is added.
Booking and security systems
  • Increased the reservation of the sight of the gunner Leopard 2.
  • C1 Ariete:
    • Fixed bugs in the booking.
    • Enhanced armor mask reservation.
    • Increased reservation of the gunner's sight area.
  • The material for reserving the Leopard 2 and C1 Ariete tanks has been replaced by composite armor, more resistant to cumulative ammunition, but more vulnerable to BOSS.
  • Enhanced reservation of a small area above the mask of the Leopard Evolution gun.
  • The bug in the Leopard 2A6 tower reservation model has been fixed, due to which there was a weakened zone when firing at certain angles in the gunner's sighting area.
  • KAZ Leopard 2A5 is replaced by MUSS COPE. The model and mechanics of the action of the node have also undergone changes.
  • Leopard 2A6: fixed reservation values.
  • Leopard 1: Fixed a bug due to which additional screens that can be installed on the tower did not have armor. Now the front part of the screen has 40 mm, the front side - 20 mm, and the rear side - 10 mm of steel armor. Also, the reinforcement of the reservation of rubber rubber fabric shields up to 15 mm. Now they even better protect against cumulative shells. The armor values ​​in the TTX are corrected.
  • The Leopard 2A5, 2A6 and 2AX gun mask has been intensified. Fixed armor in the field of MTO Leopard 2AX - now this area normally breaks, the projectiles do not ricochet when hit. The front and side booking of the Leopard 2A4 Evolution tower is weakened.
  • Leopard 2AX:
    • Significantly increased the reservation area of ​​the gunner's sight.
    • Enhanced armor mask reservation.
    • Significantly strengthened booking onboard screens.
    • The thickness of the overhead armor in the NLD area is increased.
    • Slightly reduced thickness of the overhead armor in the area of ​​VLD. Now the tank does not penetrate the gunner's sight, has a stronger NLD and with less probability breaks into the gun mask.
    • Significantly increased protection against BCS and a little - against BOPS. In reserving the tank there will be weakened zones, but their size will decrease.
  • The model of the sides of all Leopard is fixed in such a way that they can not be pierced in the area of ​​the front skating rink, shooting along the tangent to the body.
  • Dynamic protection on the whole of Soviet technology is brought to realistic characteristics. Fixed problems when low-level RS, for example, "Contact-1" T-72B, had characteristics of a more modern RS.
  • Fixed reservation of T-72A and T-72B towers: significantly reduced the thickness of the side armor, from the rear and on the roof.
  • Fixed booking of the tower on the T-72A and T-72AV versions: now the tower has a more detailed booking scheme.

  • Now all the equipment of the BMPT-series receives reduced damage to the uninhabited tower.
  • The airborne booking of BMPT "Terminator" and the prototype BMPT are weakened.
  • T-14 "Armata":
    • Fixed a bug due to which the armor in the upper part of the T-14 Armada's case was too thin and the sides too thick. Now the reservation of "Armata" better corresponds to the player's expectations: the side armor of the tank became vulnerable to large-caliber automatic guns when firing at angles close to the normal. The roof of the hull is now much more resistant to the impact of high explosive munitions.
    • Fixed a bug that caused damage to the tank when hit by a tower.
    • The reservation of the front part of the tower is enhanced, and the booking of the middle part of the NLD and VLD for the DZ is slightly relaxed.
    • Fixed booking of the base of the tower.
    • Slightly relaxed booking next to the hatches of the commander and driver-mechanic T-15 "Barbaris".
  • FV4030 / 4 Challenger 1, FV4030 / 4 Chall. 1 Wolf:
    • Armor of external fuel tanks is reduced from 315 mm to 15 mm.
    • Weakened reservation of the frontal part of the case from the FV4030 / 4 Challenger 1, increased the thickness of the hinged armor. Now progression is felt much better.
    • Reduced booking of the front side screen from 150 to 30 mm.
    • The reservation of small overhead panels in front of the VLD is loosened. Despite their small size, they gave a very large bonus to the armor.
    • Slightly weakened tower armor. The forehead of the tower still does not make its way because of the overhead armor, but now in the left part of the side of the tower appeared a weakened zone, not covered by hinged armor.
    • Bonus to the armor from small elements on the tower (lattices, containers, bags and other). They gave +150 mm of armor, now this value is reduced to 10 mm. Now the side of the Challenger tower is more evenly vulnerable to penetration.
    • The parameters of the tank's TTX are corrected. As a result of balanced revisions, he remained a well-armored OBT on his armor, but with a number of vulnerabilities.
    • The reservation of the mask of the gun is greatly strengthened.
    • Reinforced roof booking in the hatch area of ​​the tank commander.
    • The NLD overhang protection has been strengthened slightly.
  • Fixed a bug in the models of booking Challenger 1, Challenger 2, Challenger 2 ADTU, due to which the VLD of these machines were present weakened zones.
  • Fixed a bug due to which the commander hatches Challenger 1 and Challenger 1 Wolf received increased damage.
  • The booking of the "cheekbones" of the Challenger 2 and Challenger 2 ADTU tank towers has been strengthened slightly to withstand the hitting of the BOPS equipment of the 10th level, and the resistance of the armor material to the effect of BCS has been significantly strengthened.
  • Fixed booking bug of Challenger 2ADTU.
  • Reserving all tanks of the Abrams series has been changed, and now the sides of these vehicles are more vulnerable to the fire of automatic guns.
  • The NLD tanks of the Abrams series have been strengthened, and the reservation parameters in the TTX menu have been changed.
  • Booking tower M1 Abrams has been optimized to interact with different types of ammunition from different angles. Reduced the stability of the armor of the tank to armor-piercing and cumulative ammunition in the frontal projection of the tower.
  • The material for improving the protection of the "TUSK v2 complex" M1A2 has been fixed.
  • Changed the reservation of the M1A1 tower to provide better protection against cumulative and armor-piercing ammunition.
  • M1A1 AIM reservation has been significantly strengthened.
  • M1A2 SEP v3: Fixed a bug that caused the machine to get too little damage from the ram.
  • A number of changes were made to the reservation model M1A2 SEP v3 and XM1A3. Resistance of armor to the most modern ATGM is reduced.
  • Added a description of the effect of DM on the tanks M1A1 AIM and M1A2 SEP v3.
  • Fixed bugs in the armor M1A1 and M1A2, because of which the tanks too easily penetrated into the lowest part of the NLD. Slightly weakened armor screens M1 Abrams. The booking of the upper part of NLD M1A2 Sep v3 and XM1A3 is slightly strengthened. The reservation of a small area in the mask area of ​​the XM1A3 gun is intensified.
  • Reduced the resilience of booking M1A2 SEP v3 and XM1A3 to sub-caliber projectiles.
  • The resilience of booking M1 Abrams to sub-caliber projectiles has been significantly reduced.
  • A number of changes were made to the reservation model M1A2.
  • Fixed a bug due to which incorrect values ​​were indicated in the tooltip of the M1A2 dynamic protection.
  • Strengthened reservation of the FV4201 Chieftain 900 gun mask.
  • FV4201 Chieftain 900:
    • Added armor to onboard screens. These are steel sheets with a thickness of approximately 15 mm, which should protect the tank from the cumulative and slightly - BOPS. Slightly strengthened armor hull in the nadgusenichnyh shelves. Also fixed the armor values ​​in the tank's TTX.
    • The bottom was added 25 mm armor.
    • Fixed a bug in the model, because of which it was possible to damage the mechanism of loading the gun without damaging the tank.
    • Fixed a bug due to which when pointing the sight at the Chieftain 900 caterpillar the marker of armor-piercing was highlighted by white.
  • FV4201 Chieftain Mk. 2: Fixed booking errors.
  • LAV-600: Fixed errors in booking.
  • AMX-10RCR: The hatch on the hull now takes full damage.
  • Stingray 2: reduced the effectiveness of mounted armor on NLD against BOPs - in reality it is a composite hinged armor, protecting against cumulates and autocannons.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the tanks to receive reduced damage when hit on the command hatches of Stingray 1, Stingray 2, M8 Buford and M8 Thunderbold II.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the tank to receive reduced damage when hit in the lower part of the M8 Buford tower.
