I just love reading these threads on the Tank Lore forum, the amount of rubbish that people spread are amazing. :P

As stated earlier by someone on this thread, the penetration of the 25mm M242 Bushmaster and the 30mm 2A42, are around 60-70mm @ 1km against a flat vertical plate. So penetration wise it will be similar to a german 5 cm KwK 39 L/60, which has 67mm penetration with standard ammunition. Both these guns are dual fed via belts, from both sides of the gun, 1 feeds the usual HE, and/or HEI rounds, while the other sides is fed the API/APDS/APFSDS depending on loadout. Damage wise will be around 12-18 points on damage, due to the fact they the 25mm APDS rounds have an actual diameter of around 12.7mm or .50 cal. The standard cyclic rate of fire is around 200rpm, with a standard burst rate of 30-60rpm as to not overheat the barrel.

Oh btw, the 100mm on the BMP-3 does not fire any high velocity rounds, it fires a low velocity HE rounds @ 250m/s and a Laser Beam riding GL-ATGM, so not it's not going to roflpwn everything.

they'd probably be at tier 15 and kill everything with Saggers and TOW missiles

Average penetration for the 25 mm APFSDS is about 60 mm at 2km

so if it's 60mm at 2000m, and the AP is rated at 100m in game, what would AP at 100m be?
(PS i think i deleted something in the process, so the quote is kinda derp...

this is how those bradleys will do with the 25mm Cannon (in 3:40-4:10)



add the LOLs from the Bradley commander (at 0:35-1:00)


if they will add this little guy up, they wont include the TOW

it would be a Tier VI tank I think
They were firing HE, but using APFSDS the results would be different

I know all about the special properties of DU. But this isnt a tank simulator after all. 25mm gun in this game do around 12 dmg with a french one doing 27. I gave them 35, wich is already high given wargaimings way of assigning dmg. Even if they make it 50, it will be still be bad, since even with a high RoF, it doesnt do enough damage to be a threat. Sure, it may have a lot of DPM, so what? most tracks have more HP than that.

They arent bad vehicles at all, but they have a function that isnt in this game. Only the BMP could be competitive given its gun choice.
Even so, with the Bushmaster's rate of fire and conspicuous lack of needing to constantly reload, that's 12 damage every half-second at least.
