[0.8] IFVs and Chassis armor.

Recommended Posts

To sum it up: in 0.8 PTE ALL chassis armors on ALL IFVs DO NOT WORK. So here we go:

  • Nanoceramic Armor.
  1. Boxer. Doesn't reduce all incoming damage(tank and 30mm shells, RPG grenades).  If we aim at Chassis Armor 12.7mm MG deals dmg to hull while the armor plates are being destructed. Don't know is it the "feature" of the Boxer's Nanoceramic Armor.
  2. Bumerang. Armor doesn't reduce all incoming damage. Exception: 12.7m MG deal no dmg to hull when u shoot the Chassis Armor. Armor remains unscathed. I presume this is how Nanoceramic Chassis Armor should counteract with 12.7mm projectiles?
  3. Wolverine. Here comes the fun.🤪 First, the same situation with 12.7mm MG. No dmg to hull if we shoot the Chassis Armor and no dmg to armor. Second: Bumerang's Era turret'-s 30mm HE shells deal normal dmg. RPG grenade deals x4(!) damage to the parts that are protected by Chassis Armor(~98% HP dmg when hitting the side). Tank HE shell deals the same ~98% HP dmg when hitting the side. Tandem grenade when hitting Chassis Armor tears IFV to pieces. 30mm Wolverine shells: HE - 9, APFSDS - 8 to destroy. Boxer's 35mm IIRC 8 shells to destroy.

  • ERA Armor.
  1. Boxer. Doesn't work against all types of projectiles. No reduction of incoming dmg.
  2. Bumerang. Doesn't work against all types of projectiles. No reduction of incoming dmg.
  3. Wolverine. Mb work mb not. It's hard to realise as the called in with ERA Wolverine is dropped with "naked" hull without any chassis armor.

  • RPG Nets.
  1. Boxer. Doesn't work. Absolutely.
  2. Bumerang. Only 2 small parts that protect rear side work as it is intended. Parts that are protecting left and right sides do not work.
  3. Wolverine. Only 2 small parts that protect rear side work as it is intended. Parts part that are protecting left and right sides do not work.

Well, this is how current situation with IFV's Chassis Armors looks like. Unfortunately. Almost repeating the problems with Tank Chassis Armor. Later I'll test AFVs.

Some guy was complaining about OHK when playing Live so I decided to check. Ultraweak Wolverine's Nanoceramic Armor is on Live too.
