I am very much looking forward to this vehicle, more than anything else. I am hoping it will be like the rocket trucks in the 1942 expansion packs. But there are a few things I am concerned about. In the videos it seems to be firing using direct fire. That is not artillery, I really hope it has no line of sight capabilities. Also, I really really really hope it has some functionality with soflams, or some form of designation for more accurate fire at long ranges. Even something like the artillery in bf1942 with the binoculars and the aiming system they enabled you to have in that game would be fine. just something. Otherwise, hitting targets outside of los will be difficult, unless they do it like the mortars, which I would hate. Mortars don't take the finesse artillery should. Which is fine for mortars, but not vehicles.

That is already available, in many different ways. I want a good tactical/strategic vehicle.

It's a BM-21, it has inaccurate an inaccurate battery system. However, the sheer number of rockets it fires within a small time frame makes up for its inaccuracy.

Yeah, But hopefully there will be an unlock for it that allows it to have guided rockets or something.

I doubt it... I mean, forty rocket barrels = forty 122mm rockets (nearly the size of a tank shell, so just slightly weaker than one tank hit), each launched about 2 seconds apart from each other.

Stronger than abrams, weaker than T-90

Yeah, Abrams is 120mm and Russian T-series tanks are 125mm.

Indeed. But as has been demonstrated many many many times when the abrams encounters t series russian tanks. Its not the size of the gun that matters as much as it is the fire control system. While the russian tanks require you to do it old school and figure out the lead and everything your self, the abrams pretty much just has to have a target selected for it and it will hit it... every time. Both guns will completely obliterate the opposing tank anyway.... So... 5mm doesn't make much difference.


Edit: But this is off topic. Is there any speculation or ideas any of you have that you hope the new rocket trucks have for unlocks?

Mortar smaller, more controlled explosion.
Arty is a series of large, extremely volatile, and loud and destructive and hellacious explosions.
You think that arty has more finesse than the mortar? Are you drunk? High? Combo maybe? Arty is meant to level the area that it is ordered to hit, not just hit a target. Mortars are meant to hit more precisely, but not much. So while I do agree that artillery will be awesome, I think you should learn what finesse means.
I am a Smilodon. Hear me roar! Or something like that.
