Ground vehicles

  • Ability to field repair vehicles with penalties previously used in AB and RB has been added to SB.
  • Penalty for modules repaired with field repair without a repair kit has been reduced in AB and RB:
    • Gun spread multiplier has been changed from х15 to х5;
    • Guidance angles have been changed from 3 to 6 degrees;
    • Transmission losses have been changed from 50% to 25%;
    • Engine power reduction has been changed from 60% to 40%.
