    Default Thoughts on ATGMs?

    Even though they are kinda cool, I'm a bit worried about ATGM coming into play.
    Maybe its just me, but I don't feel like they fit the gameplay of Warthunder.

    What do you guys thing? Will this do more harm or good for the game?

    I don't have a problem with ATGM's coming into the game.
    They have pros and cons just like all other vehicles do. I do not think they will become the one hit KO vehicles some people seem to think they will be.

    Pros
    Less weight due to lack of turret (generally) and equipment required.
    Better power to weight ratio due to the above.
    Hard hitting warhead which is (generally) not restricted by the angle of armor it hits.

    Cons
    Have to remain stationary whilst firing and aiming.
    Big plume of smoke giving off the location of the firing vehicle.
    Thin armor (Generally).
    Reload times will normally be longer than most conventional tanks.

    For me they don't fit in Warthunder as I see/saw it (being a mainly WW2 game)
    And at first glance they might look very powerful, but they have a lot of drawbacks as wel
    Being stationary while firing and aiming, A lot of smoke while firing, thin armor and longish reloads are what Blutkind already mentioned
    Let me add the fact they need a minimum range the aim their rocket (300-400 meters in some cases) and they still need to visualy see their target to guide the rocket
    So all in all, I'll defently try them out since they seem not to be premium, but I'm not sure they will overwelm the battle after the first initial weeks
    Regarding the tier, what does it matter really?? As long as the tanks from the same BR can counter it I'm fine with it
    I never lose. I either win or I learn.

    How will the ATGMs work? Is it fire and forget, aiming while the rocket is in the air, line of sight, etc.?

    In RB most of them will be steeres by the keyboard. In AB you can lead them into the target.

    So I have taken them out during the testserver (only the britsh premium)
    The penetration is phenomenal (<600 mm) so you can penetrate anything.

    The aiming is very acurat as long as you don't shake your mouse too much, during big direction changes they tend to do a big curve.

    All this is AB realated.

    So I think they won't be as op as everybody thinks.

    I've seen some footage yesterday from a youtuber from a gaijijn stream but I can't remeber/find it anymore
    But I've found another video from PhlyDaily while he is testing them on the devserver => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJY6CILNKZo
    So judging by this video some of my earlier asumptions were wrong, yet I keep hope Gaijin will balance these vehicles
    At the moment they aren't very acurate and also don't oneshot as much as I thought, so for me it's looking good as is

    Btw Schtreusel how did you get to a testserver? I'd love to spent some time there :)

    Get the dev version "test version" and get into a custom battle i think. or "test drive"

    The dev server was only temp its not up anymore we were both on it and like he said missiles are hard as hell to control and it seems you have to hit a flat surface for the most effective damage

    So German, US and Russians have grindable ATGM's but Brits have to buy one? Nice one Gaijin.

    I assume the swingfire will be along next patch
