Default OOB #13 (USMC) Error Report

Seems the M1A1 Abrams comes in two different sizes :
Units # 467, 468, 469, and 641 are size 5.
Every other M1A1 is size 6.

After posting the last message and "correcting" the Abrams to the majority size number ( 6 ) I had a look at some of the other tanks so I'll toss this open to discussion

Should the Abrams be size 6 or size 5 ??


Size is tricky to determine. It's all " rule of thumb" and all based on what else it's fighting in it's time period

T-72's are size 4 as are T-80's and T-90's.

A Brit Centurion is size 5 as are Chieftains and Challengers

Leo 1's and 2's are size 5 ( but so are M60's.......)

Perhaps the Abrams should be 5 as well ??. Perhaps size 6 is too large under the circumstances ?

I'm thinking 5's a better number.

Thumbs up Re: OOB #13 (USMC) Error Report

Don,
I agree that 5 is the better choice. The M1 Abrams is one of the top tanks in the world and should NOT be put at a disadvantage with a size 6.

I'll leave this open to discussion but I've already changed them all to size 5. Someone will have to present a very convincing argument for 6

I would suggest Abrams at size 5 and M60A1/2/3 size 6 - it's pretty tall beastie.

What Size is a M3 Bradley? They're quite tall as well.

M1: 8ft
M60: 10ft
M3: 9.6ft

5 works for me, I'd assumed the 6 was based on some obscure code thing we mere players have no clue how the game deals with.
