BTR-60 the MEC APC

The BTR-60 is still higher, wider, and as long as the Russian BTR-80 (should be smaller)

The Texture looks a bit to shining compared with others, and the camouflage patterns is a bit to blurry.

Movement is tested on "gravel"

Its max speed is somewhere at 72 km/h offroad (RL: 60km/h offroad (warfare.ru))
its climbing power is up to 60%, but at a transverse gradient of 40% the BTR60 is already sliding downhill. The back of the vehicle seems to slid faster, this leads to a turning of the vehiclewhile driving on a slope.

The turret is stabilized but i coulnd find any indication that its RL counterpart is stabilized, too.

Armor:
this stats are tested only on lokal so far, it was tested on the armor of the right sidearmor, from aprox 100m. The vehicle was either destroyed or set on fire (and blown up after some secs)

12,7mm/ - /WZ551A/ 26
14,5mm/ - /VN3 / 149
25mm /AT /LAV25 /57
30mm /HE /BMP3 / 66
30mm /AT /BTR80A /53
125mm /HEAT/ T72/ 2
125mm /Sabot/ T72/ 4

and one TOW...

so to say the .50 is one of the most dangerous weapons against teh BTR-60 wile somewhat invulnerable to sabotrounds.

I think the same apply s to the M113.
Easy to kill with a .50 cal but it needs a lot 14,5mm ammunition to take it down.

Edit:
Tested it.
12,7mm/ - /Technical/ 27
14,5mm/ - /BRDM2/ 150
25mm /AT /LAV25 / 60

I'm sure most of that testing is accurate (maybe not due to local) and I know the M113 has that issue. Though on Muttrah City the BTR-60s go down with between 15 and 30 AP from the LAV-25, so I don't know where you got 57 from.

mh ok have to check this out on a dedicated server ... the only thing possibly going wrong is the local thing... but i find it quite hard to find some enemy willing to hold still, while you shoot him direkt on the right sidearmor in a pupplay :razz:

used us_apc_lav25 against mec_apc_btr60
so exactly the same as in muttrah and i am quite sure about the AT-round count. (made a video ;))

wold be a pitty if lokal is so far off because creating a lokel to train would turn obsolet.

Wait, it took four T-72 SABOT shots to kill it? Are you 100% about this?

Tested it now on local and you're right.

It needs 60 14,5mm shots to get the LAV25 burning.

Technical attacks BTR60 on front armor.
It needs 32 12.7mm shots to get the BTR60 burning.
Edit: Something is wrong with this. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't even scratch the vehicle on the same spot.

ok found another weak point for me ... shoting the lights at the front side sets it on fire after 13 rounds

Tricky, on this map I need 57 AP shots to.

I did my tests on Muttrah City CQ_64 with a modified gamplayobjects.con.

I think you need to test it on the dedicated server,the local configs are somewhat different.
Don't try to do it on the full server :-P
Just pick an empty one and bring another person (s) with you, so you can operate the weapons and line up the vehicles.

How are you guys testing the weapons on local servers without a driver in the vehicle?

Single player mode, I guess.

nope... unlock the teamrestriction on the vehicles .. after that you can enter eg. all non-usmc vehicle as usmc and all non-mec vehicle as mec.. you even dont need a crewman kit.

But how do you unlock the team restriction? You forget here that I'm not a coder.

should still be working ; just create a new folder in your ...bf2/mods/pr/levels name it testdrive and extraxt the files there... (the files dlable in the quotes) ... then create a new local game. but only use testdrive std. (cos i am lazy)
