Default Coax overheat

Last thread was promptly locked due to being in the wrong forum, and not moved here. So, as feedback:

All armor coax overheats too quickly, for gameplay and compared to real life.

5 seconds of continuous fire = unable to fire for 10 seconds

This is about 60-65 rounds.

In-game:

1 Word: Balance?

Most armor is already fucking OP as is against infantry and small vehicles...

That's not because you can't shoot a few extra seconds with coax, the answers are elsewhere.

That overheat is absolutely out of place. Couldn't the DEV responsible for it have come up with a more reasonable way to balance gameplay? The overheat doesn't even benefit balance, all it does is being a major annoyance for the gunner.

But how long does it take for barrel to cool down in real life compared to in-game?
(for example, you can go trigger happy with M60 in Rising Storm 2 next to supply station and it will bend your barrel in a few hundred rounds of continuous fire)

I am sure devs can make you able to shoot hundreds of rounds without overheating, then having to wait minutes for it to cool down.

I don't know why you made it so unrealistic even our Leopard 2A4 tanks in the Swiss army, old as fuck! are not overheating after 5 sec. I even saw it live how a tank fired 15 sec coax without overheating. I don't get what you think is realistic letting a coax overheat in 5 sec. Soon I'm going back to army maybe I can record something. Let's see.

Would be cool to find out, why you have changed it?

I think it's been like this for a good while, but I still, I don't remember reading anything about coax overheat in the past changelogs since 1.1. Would be nice to hear the reasoning for having coaxes at such an unrealistic state.

Same situation applies to cannons, too. They shouldn't of course be able to fire as long, but longer than currently.

The barrel might not cool down quickly, but it can be changed out. I don't overheat but from the perspective of the driver, coax overheats too quickly, I think the best way to force bursts would be add deviation after 20 rounds fired if possible, but not before as that would make long range coax useless.

Coax over heat on British vehicles is really bad, needs to be fixed.
