Isnt the reloadtime to fast!?
Yup its like it has a autoloader that would make a modern MBT proud.
The 105mm projectile should weigh about 25-30lbs and rate of fire should be 10rds per minute maximum and sustained is about 3-4 rounds per minute.
KillorWell, there's a lot of minor things that lack of penetration will hurt, and a few major things. Parking the tank would be the most effective way without penetration, but that would be horrible in game. However, the M4 105 shouldn't be good at AT merely because it has enough 'splosive to damage a tank without penetration.
Also, more armor only helps the tank...the people inside can sitll be injured.
Exactly! What he said.
I still dont know why a low velocity howitzer is better at firing HE rounds. If someone knows I would be glad to hear.
Do they tumble? Do they loose accduracy with velocity?
The 105mm Doesnt have enough velocity to fire a AP penetrator, it would have to use a Shaped charge round. Im not aware of the US developing one for the their artillery pieces.
