Weapon mounts are generally designed to reduce the recoil of the weapon they mount. A tanks coaxial machine gun, coupled with the tank's targeting system, is able to engage a man size target at a very, very long range, somewhere near the maximum range of the weapon.

I've never fired a mounted .50 cal, but I don't think the current recoil is a real problem.

Well, IRL its elligal to shoot directly at personal with 50cal guns, so already there, its kinda unrealistic. Might be too much to make a ticket loss on direct 50cal personal kills

Illegal? When you have armed forces larger than the next seven in the world combined, the largest effective arsenal of nuclear ICBMs on the planet, and an intelligence arm capable of overthrowing just about any country with the right funding, you'll find that there are very few with the gall to stand up to your breaking the law.

In summary, .50 cal weapons are fine; the point of war is to kill the enemy, so why not kill him well?

50 cal is not half as effective as that scoped co axial. It does have bullet drop but not enough to make you miss that much

Apart from a sniper rifle we dont have any scoped 50 cals, that really would be deadly

The gun on the militia apc might be closest to that and I cant remember if its scoped in this version, probably not as its pretty dam crap

Theres no bullet drop on 50 cals afaik but you cant see that far while shooting with them anyway so its not a big deal whether they relate to real weaponry on a tank or not

Speaking from experience in the game; it takes quite a few rounds to manage a kill with the coax at distance. It's more like spraying a garden hose into the air and walking the stream onto target.

Speaking from experience in the world; mounted weapons recoil is both absorbed by the mount and far more controllable. Initially there is some jump but that is easily correctable and normally doesn't take that long to get rounds on target.

^^ Agreed


This video is pretty awesome, scope fitted .50 cal on a firing range with tracer rounds used to sight the target.
