MT-LB armor issue
Needs Review, Needs TriagePublic

Description

6.5 and 7.62 rounds penetrate through and kill crewmen/passengers inside the vehicle despite it having sufficient armor to protect against small arms fire. This occurs anywhere on the vehicle, even through the thick rear doors and the slanted frontal armor.

I did not have this issue when i tested it in dev branch. I could not shoot thru the hull with the CSAT machinegun and kill the crew.

Try using different weapons, I managed to penetrate it with the 7.62 round of an M110 and the 6.5 round from a Katiba in my testing.

Tried with the Katiba and m60 on dev branch, crew was protected just fine, i could nto kill or hurt them. think its fixed in dev branch.

Well if that's the case then that's great and somebody can close this ticket as resolved.

close ticket

MTLB has paper thin armor, that's intended to happen.
It might be the fire geometries are broken now.
