   I was thinking about having machine guns in blitz. Maybe a custom game mode or permanent. What are your thoughts?

A standard US 50 cal can maybe penetrate 25mm of rolled homogenous armor. A 12.7x108 can do roughly the same. A 7.62x39 can penetrate a whopping 14mm.

 

At tier 8? You'd be able to penetrate roughly three tanks, maybe, at close range, if their armor was completely flat to you. Even tanks like the Borsig were specifically designed with the idea that they should stop up to heavy machine gun caliber rounds.

 

In short. They're useless against armor.

Well, actually, there *is* a tank in the game that is armed with a usable M2 Browning .50 cal machine gun, the tier II T7 Combat Car. Statistically, it's a 3 round burst autocannon with 9 total rounds in the magazine, and 12 damage per shot

Yah, but you forget that this is Blitz. After the recent penetration buff, the 50 cal in Blitz now has 41mm of penetration

 

And besides the T7 Car, the Light VIC is also armed with a machine gun, the Besa machine gun chambered in 7.92mm Mauser, which also has 41mm of penetration and 12 damage per shot, but is a 2 round burst autocannon with 8 total rounds

Also, if Blitz was to hypothetically implement machine guns, and use them the way warthunder does, then it's possible you could shoot missiles down or rangefind enemy tanks.

It sounds fun for some sort of special game mode. Better than ducks for example

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I remember playing t7 Car and it was just too much annoyance ... lacking pen and speed to use that limited pen.

 

a Super mobile Car with machine guns would be epic fun, not doing upfront damage but in small bursts.

So basically I legit don't ever look at the forum anymore because I mainly look at it during school. My school banned the site you go to log in and I couldn't post, and I'd rather devote my time when on my home computer to playing the game. So yeah basically why I vanished from the forum. Its not like I posted a lot anyways lol 

my crappy stats= here

and for the life of me I cant find a pfp that is small, this one is getting old

I was thinking that it could be like a defense for TDs against light tanks. If they do it I hope they change the models for the t28/95 so it has one.

Lights are a hard counter to TDs, giving them machine guns to defend against them would make TDs strong vs Lights

I wish that WG would remove all the useless machine guns that are on the Turrets. Like on the IS-7, they are all so stupid looking...

I think they make the tanks look cool. It's the guns that you can use that annoy me
