  1. Wish i had Arma 2... (at least, since got no much bucks left for Arma 3) That 30mm cannon must be the Orbital ATK44 Bushmaster III one, but i still prefer Stryker MGS than others..
  2. Well, i would say this gun better used in-numbers.. similar to BRDM's, acceleration times might be also a problem which is need lot of practice driving this.. Typical gameplay can be found for example, Shijia Valley, Vadso City, Burning Sands etc. Usually for me personally, fighting in long range would preferable rather than Close Quarters.. since it will be outgunned by other faction autocannons (like 2A42/2A72 for sure) And.. are you sure about the gun still overheats with just 8 rounds fired? I have checked recent updates and changelogs.. not seeing them (if i missed something there, my apologies..) Last seen, this gun was never be able to overheat since the new update v1.4.0-ish , since its has slow-rate of firing. Is it been fixed? - Inch Thanks to all who commented and giving suggestions, glad you guys enjoyed the the read-! See ya in the next post-! Cheers!
  3. Hello everyone, This is the new post about the L21A1 RARDEN 30mm Autocannon, which is also known in PR as the main armaments of British FV107 Scimitar IFV and FV510 Warrior APC. Enjoy-! The L21A1 RARDEN is a British 30mm autocannon used as a combat vehicle weapon. The name is a contraction of the Royal Armament, Research and Development Establishment and Enfield. The Royal Armament Research and Development Establishment (RARDE) and the Royal Small Arms Factory (RSAF), Enfield, at the time, were both part of the Ministry of Defence. - Design: The weapon uses a long recoil system of operation, for minimum recoil forces on the mounting and vehicle. Spent cases are ejected forwards. The weapon was also designed for minimum inboard length, allowing for more space in the turret or a smaller turret overall. Another feature is that no gun gas escapes into the turret. The cartridge case used is 170mm in length, and is based on the Hispano-Suiza 831-L round. Unlike the belt-fed systems on most vehicle weapons, Rarden is loaded manually with three-round clips. This limits its capacity to fire in automatic mode to 6 rounds. The Rarden gun does not require an external power source and can therefore remain in action even if the vehicle is disabled. - Manufacture: The RSAF Enfield manufactured the Rarden from the early 1970s. However the RSAF was incorporated within the Royal Ordnance Factories in the early 1980s, in the run up to their privatisation, becoming part of Royal Ordnance. Royal Ordnance (RO) planned to close Enfield and several other sites after privatisation. British Aerospace (BAe) bought Royal Ordnance on 2 April 1987 and the closure of RSAF Enfield was announced on 12 August 1987. Most of RO Enfield's work was moved, prior to the closure of the RSAF, to RO Nottingham. Manufacture of the RARDEN was carried out at British Manufacture and Research Company BMARC from 1985. This company was purchased by BAe in 1992, becoming part of RO Defence; now renamed BAE Systems Global Combat Systems Munitions. - Service Use/Replacement: The Rarden is, or has been, fitted to a number of armoured vehicles in the British Army: FV721 Fox armoured car FV107 Scimitar tracked reconnaissance vehicle (part of the Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked) or CVR(T) range) Sabre — FV101 Scorpion with turrets taken from Fox Armoured cars (also in the CVR(T) range) FV510 Warrior infantry fighting vehicle, and some of its variants The Rarden was also intended to be retro-fitted to the FV432 armoured personnel carrier (see below), but when fitted with Rarden and its turret there was too little room left to accommodate the necessary infantry. 13 vehicles were fitted with the Fox turret, as an experimental fire support vehicle. There were problems with the long-barrelled weapon fouling external fittings (which meant that the turret had to be mounted on a three inch spacer) and with blast damage to the flotation screen. They were deployed with the Berlin Infantry Brigade. In March 2008, the UK Ministry of Defence announced that a 40mm weapon firing Cased Telescoped Ammunition developed by the Anglo-French firm CTA International had been selected to replace Rarden in the Warrior IFV and to be fitted to the reconnaissance vehicle which would replace the existing range of CVR(T) vehicles. - FV510 Warrior 40mm - CTA International 40mm Autocannon - Specifications: Calibre: 30 x 170mm Overall length: 3.15 metres (10 ft 4 in) Barrel length: 2.44 metres (8 ft 0 in) Inboard length: 430 millimetres (17 in) Complete weight: 110 kilograms (240 lb) Barrel weight: 24.5 kilograms (54 lb) Ammunition: Armour Piercing Secondary Effect (APSE), High Explosive Incendiary (HEI), Armour Piercing Discarding Sabot (APDS) Muzzle velocity: - APSE, HEI: 1070 m/s - APDS: 1175 m/s Range: 2,000 metres (2,200 yd) Sources: wikipedia, tank-encyclopedia, military-today and many other sources Thanks for reading-!

  6. project reality

    OwO I know that, man! But, it was never implemented in PR as German Heavy Anti-Air Vehicle assets.. too bad But, it is interesting vehicle to see ( and probably to post as well ) for German Bundeswehr along Wiesel 2 LeFlaSys "Ozelot" ( or many other variants! ) Ah... Flakpanzer Gepard, it was great in old days... now being phased out and few of them stored.. - Inch

  8. Q: What again this time? After all this months... A: Dude, this is all about the 25mm Autocannon, infamous M242 Bushmaster-! Q: What a surprise! Lemme guess... this thing must be in-game (PR) A: Oh yeah, of course! Almost all of U.S and N.A.T.O members using it! The M242 Bushmaster is a 25 mm (25×137mm) chain-driven autocannon. It is used extensively by the U.S. military, as well as by NATO's and some other nations' forces in ground combat vehicles, such as the Bradley fighting vehicle and various watercraft. Originally the weapon was designed and manufactured by Hughes Ordnance in Culver City, CA, which was acquired by McDonnell Douglas (later acquired by the Boeing Corporation); however it is now produced by Alliant Techsystems (ATK) of Mesa, Arizona. It is an externally powered, chain-driven, single-barrel weapon which may be fired in semi-automatic, burst, or automatic modes. It is fed by a metallic link belt and has dual-feed capability. The term "chain gun" derives from the use of a roller chain that drives the bolt back and forth. The gun can destroy lightly armored vehicles and aerial targets (such as helicopters and slow-flying aircraft). It can also suppress enemy positions such as exposed troops, dug-in positions, and occupied built-up areas. The standard rate of fire is 200 rounds per minute. The weapon has an effective range of 3,000 metres (9,800 ft), depending on the type of ammunition used. With over 10,000 units sold worldwide, it is one of the most successful modern autocannons. - History: The Bushmaster project started as an offshoot of the US Army's MICV-65program that was attempting to introduce a new infantry fighting vehicle to replace their existing M113s. Part of this program called for a new scout vehicle to replace the M114, a parallel development taking place under the XM800 Armored Reconnaissance Scout Vehicle. Both the XM800 and the cavalry version of the XM701 MICV vehicles were armed with the M139, a US-built version of the Hispano-Suiza HS.820 20 mm autocannon. During the testing phase, the Army eventually rejected the XM701 and started work on a newer design known as the XM723. Soon after the XM800 was also rejected. This led to the combination of the two programs, moving the scout role to the cavalry version of the XM723. At the same time, the M139 proved to be disappointing and a contract for a new weapon to replace it started as a competitive development in 1972 simultaneously at Ford Aeronutronic Division (self-powered weapon) and Hughes Helicopters Ordnance Division (externally-powered,) under the Summa Corporation as the Vehicle Rapid-Fire Weapons System-Successor, or VRFWS-S. This was essentially a power-driven gun firing similar 20mm ammunition as the HS.820, the power-driven mechanism would ensure operation even in the case of a misfire. Progress on the VRFWS-S was slow, and eventually resulted in a switch to a much more powerful 25 mm round. Similar delays in the MICV program meant the ultimate vehicles descending from their efforts, the M2/M3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle, did not enter production until 1981, by which point the Bushmaster had matured. Since 1990, there have been several enhancements made upon the weapon, resulting in the Enhanced 25 mm gun. To date, more than 10,500 weapons are in service. One of the major reasons for this popularity is the extremely reliable nature of the weapon. It has a rating of 22,000 mean rounds between failure (MRBF), much higher than many comparable devices. XM701 MICV Project XM800T ARSV at Fort Knox M2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle M3A1 Bradley Cavalry Fighting Vehicle XM721 MICV Project Hispano-Suiza HS.820 Autocannon - Description: Unlike most automatic firearms, the M242 does not depend on gas or recoil to actuate its firing system. Instead, it uses a 1 hp (0.75 kW) DCmotor, positioned in the receiver to drive the chain and dual-feed system. This system uses sprockets and extractor grooves to feed, load, fire, extract, and eject rounds. A system of clutches provides for an alternate sprocket to engage and thus allows the gunner to switch between armor-piercing and high-explosive rounds. The weapon assembly consists of three parts: the barrel assembly, the feeder assembly, and the receiver assembly. The three-part structure makes it possible for a two-person team to install or remove the system (under ideal conditions) despite its considerable total weight. The M242 weapon system has both electrical and manual fire control and can be operated electrically or manually. In doing so, the gunner can choose from three rates of fire: (1) Single Shot Semi-Automatic, in which the gunner can shoot as fast as the trigger can be operated, limited only by the electrical drive speed (it cannot be fired faster than High rate). (2) Low Rate Fully Automatic, in which the weapon fires 100 rounds a minute, plus or minus 25 rounds. (3) High Rate Fully Automatic, in which the weapon fires 200 rounds a minute, plus or minus 25 rounds. - Ammunition: A wide range of ammunition has been developed for this weapon, providing it with the capability to defeat the majority of armored vehicles it is likely to encounter, up to and including some light tanks. The ammunition used in the M242 may also be used in a variety of weapons such as the GAU-12 Equalizer, the French Giat M811, or the Swiss Oerlikon KBA weapon system. It has the capability to fire U.S. manufactured ammunition as well as the NATO equivalents thereof. Primarily though, it fires six types of rounds: - M791 Armour-piercing discarding sabot with Tracer ( M791 APDS-T ) 5.7 million rounds produced The APDS-T penetrates lightly armored vehicles, self-propelled artillery, and aerial targets such as helicopters and various slow-moving, fixed-wing aircraft. - M792 High Explosive Incendiary with Tracer and Self Destruct ( M792 HEI-T-SD ) 5.5 million rounds produced The HEI-T can destroy unarmored vehicles and helicopters and suppress antitank missile positions and enemy squads out to a maximum effective range of 2,200 meters. - M793 Target Practice with Tracer ( M793 TP-T ) 11.5 million rounds produced The TP-T cartridge is a fixed-type, percussion-primed training round that matches the High Explosive Incendiary with Tracer (HEI-T M792) round ballistically. The TP-T's tracer is visible out to 2,000 meters, however, the round has a maximum effective range (accuracy-limited) of 1,600 meters. - M910 Target Practice Discarding Sabot with Tracer ( M910 TPDS-T ) The TPDS-T replicates the flight pattern of the M791 Armor Piercing Discarding Sabot with Tracer (APDS-T) round. The TPDS-T allows units to realistically practice sabot engagements. - MK210 High Explosive Incendiary with Tracer ( MK210 HEI-T ) 228,000 rounds produced Used by the U. S. Navy in their Mk. 38 naval weapon system. - M919 Armor-Piercing, Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot With Tracer ( M919 APFSDS-T ) The APFSDS-T round penetrates light armored vehicles, self-propelled artillery, and aerial targets, which includes helicopters and slow-moving fixed-wing aircraft. The dart is made of depleted uranium. - Variants: The M242 is currently in use by the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, the New Zealand Army, Royal New Zealand Navy, the Norwegian Army, the Spanish Army, the Swiss Army, the Canadian Army, the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Navy, the Israeli Navy, Philippine Navy, the Singapore Army and Republic of Singapore Navy as well as several others. The wide usage results in several variations and modifications on the standard M242 weapon system. *Ground Vehicles: The M242 is standard equipment on the U. S. Army M2 and M3 Bradley fighting vehicles, it is also in use on the LAV-25. Before the project was cancelled, the Bushmaster II 30 mm chain gun (a successor to the M242) was used on the Marine Corps' Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV). The M242 is also a popular choice of primary armament for armoured fighting vehicles manufactured around the world, such as Singapore's Bionix AFVs and as the Rafael OWS-25 mounted on upgraded M113A2 Ultra IFVs. USMC Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle Project Singapore Bionix AFV Singapore M113A2 Ultra IFV *Enhanced 25 mm Gun: Work on an upgraded weapon began in 1990. In doing so, all three major systems and seven minor systems were improved. The modifications began with introducing a chrome-lined barrel, an enhanced feeder, and an enhanced receiver. The weapon systems also received minor upgrades such as quick-detachable link covers, a larger breech assembly, a high efficiency muzzle brake, longer recoil, an integral round counter, an extended life firing pin and spring, and a triple-spring drive clutch. It was first put to use on the M2A3 Bradley, the fourth version of the M2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle. <- M2A3 Bradley *Naval: In 1977, the U. S. Navy realized that it needed a replacement for the Oerlikon 20mm Mk. 16 series of guns. In 1986, this requirement was satisfied with the introduction of the Mk. 38 Mod 0 weapons system. A derivative of the M242 system, the Mk. 38 consists of the M242 chain gun and the Mk. 88 Mod 0 machine gun mount. It provides ships with defensive and offensive gunfire capability for the engagement of a variety of surface targets. Designed primarily as a close-range defensive measure, it provides protection against patrol boats, floating mines, and various shore-based targets. <- Mk. 38 Mod 0 25mm Naval Cannon *Mk. 38 Mod 2: Recently, several US Navy platforms have been outfitted with a newer version, the Typhoon Weapon System designated Mk. 38 Mod 2, which is remotely operated and includes an Electronic Optical Sight, Laser Range-Finder, FLIR, and a more reliable feeding system, enhancing the weapon systems capabilities and accuracy. In 2006 the Sri Lanka Navy added the M242 to its fleet of Fast Attack Craft. The system is also in use by the Republic of Singapore Navy's Formidable-class frigate and Endurance-class landing platform dock ship and were deployed as part of coalition forces' port security efforts in Iraq as well as anti-piracy roles in the Gulf of Aden. Aside from that, the Singapore Police Coast Guard's New Coastal Patrol Craft (NCPC) has adopted the system as its main armament. BAE and Boeing teamed together after a March 2011 contract to add a directed energy weapon to the Mk. 38 Mod 2 gun mount, known as the Mk. 38 Mod 2 tactical laser system. The TLS combines a Boeing-designed solid-state laser with the existing BAE-manufactured Mk. 38 mount to deliver high-precision accuracy against fast surface and air threats including speed boats and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Laser power levels can be adjusted depending on the target and mission objectives. Originally, the system was armed with a 10 kW laser, but in April 2017 BAE announced they had increased power to 60 kW. <- Mk. 38 Mod 2 25mm Naval Cannon *Mk 38 Mod 3: In April 2012, BAE unveiled the Mk. 38 Mod 3 version of the system mount, developed in collaboration with Rafael. It is visually distinctive from previous versions with its stealthy housing, which also protects the gun from weather and allows for easier access to internal components through large access panels. The Mod 3 mounts a larger Alliant Techsystems Mk. 44 Bushmaster II 30 mm cannon for a 500-meter range increase, as well as a coaxial M2 .50 caliber machine gun. Elevation is increased to +75 degrees for engaging UAVs and helicopters, and ammunition storage is greater at 420 30 mm rounds. Other features include a larger manual fire control panel, an offset mode specifically for firing warning shots, and a surveillance mode where the gun can be pointed away from a target but the EO sensor remains pointed in the target direction. Although it has a high degree of commonality and has the same footprint as previous models, the Mod 3 is 20 percent heavier due to greater ammo load. - Operators ( Real Life and PR:BF2 inspired ): Australia - ASLAV-25 Canada - Coyote reconnaissance vehicle - LAV III APC Malaysia - ACV-300 IFV New Zealand - NZLAV Philippines - GKN Simba AIFV - M113 APC Singapore - Bionix 25 - M113A2 Ultra IFV Spain - Army: VEC-M1 United States - Army: M2/M3 Bradley - Marine Corps: LAV-25 - Specifications: Type Chain gun Place of origin United States Service history In service 1972–present Used by See operators Production history Designer McDonnell Douglas Manufacturer Alliant Techsystems No. built 10,500+ Specifications Weight 119 kilograms (262 lb) Length 2,527 mm (99.5 in)[1] Barrel length • Overall: 2,672 mm(105.2 in) • Bore: 2,175 mm (85.6 in) Width 318 mm (12.5 in) Height 373 mm (14.7 in) Shell 25×137 mm Caliber 25 millimetres (0.98 in) caliber Barrels Single barrel (progressive RH parabolic twist) Rate of fire • Cyclic: 200rpm with 1hp or 500rpm with 8hp Muzzle velocity 1,100 metres per second(3,600 ft/s) Effective firing range 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) Maximum firing range 6,800 metres (22,300 ft) Sources: wikipedia, tank-enyclopedia, and many other sources Thanks for reading!

  9. Welcome aboard my friend-! Always meeted you around TS ( almost everyday ), talking stuffs and helping admins in PR Coop Server ( low pop situation sometimes ) Finally, nice intro indeed ! 10/10 would be love to come around and play with you again some other time.. - Inch
  10. It is a server reset, which is always performed everyday, changing the map rotations and also possible low pop situations.
  11. Was playing the "Blitz" version instead of this, both at Phone and PC ( via Steam ), never actually tried the real one Might not be able to play WoT around with VG folks, since the region will be locked to Asian Server on me - Inch
  12. Welcome to the site, see ya around the field-! -Inch
  13. You can check it around here, i did see someone did upload it some of the maplists ( i forgot who.. ), but there's only about 5 out of 6 Setups that currently used in-game ( among them are the Low Pop Setup, which is not implemented just yet ) Map rotations are changed everyday mostly ( had signs of losing connection, game crash in-game at VG COOP Server, means that the server changing the map rotations ), it always starting from 0600/0700-ish ( GMT+0 ) from my point of view. And also the server had small changes at Friday, instead of using custom map rotations, an OPFOR map rotation goes in ( OPFOR Fridays ) every weeks, giving somewhat new and fresh gameplay with different faction and tactics / strategies to win the game ( since the BLUFOR is really are general for some people in COOP, this is also made for someone who's looking for a challenge ) I'm pretty sure OPFOR Fridays still alive till now.. - Inch
  14. Welcome to the site- will be looking forward to see you around the battlefield-! Cheers, - Inch
