....any chance you can have a mechanism, maybe only once per game, where you can un-flip you tank ?

 

I can take the stupid ones, but when you flip when you go over a log, it takes the biscuit :-)

 

I would post in the idea forum, but suspect eff all happens so....

I thought if I pointed my gun into the ground I could shoot myself back onto my tracks with the recoil but that doesn't happen lol

It is frustrating, and it seems to be a more common occurrence these days.   Perhaps a consumable to correct it?  Or a new option in the Repair Kit?

 

It is pretty tragic to be lying on your side, begging your team mates to ram you upright.  In a real life situation, the crew might well be able to right their tank with jacks and pulleys - just as feasible as repairing tracks, or bringing your gunner back from the dead.

I find the AMX 13 75 flips really easily unlike the 13 57 and even AMX 12t.

 

It's about 50/50 on if your team flips you back.

 

WG should either give a reward to the saver or give us an unflip button yeah...

Do tanks turn over often in real life?

 

I remember a video showing a more modern, possibly Russian, tank doing this posted a while back but common sense (i.e intellectual laziness?) suggests it would be difficult, to say the least.

I think ya'll need some driving lessons.
Also, bad things happen in other aspects of the game, this just adds more depth.

If your completely upside down does the turret stay still and the hull rotate?

 

I think most of use have plonked a tank on it's side, it's almost as embarrassing as falling off a bridge because you were zoomed in elsewhere!

Seem to do this more often than usual in my M8A1. I think it's top heavy with all the cases of Budweiser the crew have stacked in the turret!   :)

If your completely upside down you explode and die after I think a 10 second timer

But the tanks modelled in the game bear no relation at all to their real life equivalents. They turn way quicker and accelerate much quicker, especially off road. Having said that, it's an arcade game, so a reflip after 29secs (there should be some punishment for bad driving) wouldn't bother me.

It's a 30s timer when you're totally upside down.

The faster tanks in game feel more like toy cars than big tracjed vehicles. They bounce around loads, the worst flips are on pieces of destroyable scenery and the random small rocks hidden by bushes... Maybe real light tanks flip this easily?

I think 30 seconds should be enough if not maybe make it a minute. Maybe add a special key to start the action but it would be nice to have the ability to turn the tank back up. Once a battle is fine for this (tough luck for the BT7 drivers).

When you post the replay we'll explain why it wasn't just from going over a log
