Default Combined Arms : Tank crew

Are we going to see something like the upcoming tank crew for il-2. the current module is great but the potential for improvement is enticing. I think ED should focus on ground gameplay and put on hold the air campaign. they should start working on simulated tank and vehicle modules.

What do you think?

Some years ago, wags talk about request info about a M-1 Tank, but none more info or plans was made.

DCS has not capability yet to build a vehicle / tank module missing the code and dlls, similarly to a ship / submarine module. No plans about them actually. CA actually get only a limited functionality to drive and combat by vehicles and Tanks with realistic modules. The only point actually has the very limited CA.

it is not cool such a great game, especially with the improved terrains. Well I hope in the future they will implement this.

Other point has the missing of resources, personal and time. Actually ED has a small team. And a land / sea module require extensive research, build some annexed assets and functionalities to work. That has very down as priority on the To-Do / plans list.

I think you are right. My Mi-8 is useless from the moment of the purchase. Su-25 and all the transport helicopters are totally dependent of the improvement for the CA module

Yup, Combined Arms has huuuge potential , but it's being wasted. I play JTAC using the stinger model. And it's Ok'ish. A proper JTAC model would add to the immersion and proper binoculars - not a telescope could help too.
The thermal view is so, so...

Played as GFC recently and the AI shooting through buildings is very disappointing.

If they had at least done.

- Soldiers embarking vehicles
- artillery with selectable number of rounds and type of rounds
- Sams - lock from radar
- Proper JTAC unit. I think that would help a lot

From the last time I played with an infantry , I also remember they used to shoot each other when they 're standing in front of each other :-D I mean....Goooood......

There is a RADAR-only screen for SAM units.

I don't think it is going to happen from ED but I'd love a proper tank sim. No 3rd party dev interested?
