In addition to the stabilization systems that have made considerable progress, much of this “work” which consists of a stable chassis in all circumstances through suspension . And it comes from far away. As the airplane, the tank was born during the Great War, deadly laboratory numerous innovations. The car, designed in conjunction with the French and the English, was simply aims to pass the “no man’s land” by providing direct support to infantry, unlike artillery. Merely take on this very hilly and muddy terrain machines of several tons of artillery derived tractors, has already lean engineers on the problem. Initially, there was simply no suspensions. The tanks advancing “at no infantry” to 2-6 km/h on average, it was not a problem. These include the still-board comfort was very primitive and that we suffered from poisoning C02 even before they suffer from seasickness!
The area of suspension design is a surprisingly complicated one, and one which has shaped tracked vehicle design (both of tanks and support vehicles) since their conception back before world war 1. The idea of a suspension system to dampen impacts on the chassis and to decrease the force on the tracks from terrain has been well known, with many approaches leading to many effects.
In the version 2.0 update. Most of the players don't know how to adjust the Hydropneumatic suspension.
It's automatically adjust with your aiming. All you have to do is either aim up or down with your sight.
In OBT3.3 many vehicles have been added. But only 2 tanks uses the Hydropneumatic suspension system. MBT-70 and Type 74.
In the final release. Many modern tanks will feature the Hydropneumatic suspension system.
If version 2.0 is going arcade. It will have all tanks with this feature
The Innovation of BAE:
It would seem that the British reconnect again with innovation in a field for which they appeared as pioneers with their CV90 test, which uses for the first time “Formula 1” suspension systems. According to the press release this is a “new active damping suspension system” which result in a new damping system of active suspension. This system is actually derived from Formula 1, which after banishment in 1994 to eliminate driving aids found a new vocation in defense. This active suspension (computer-aided electronic management) allows vehicles to manage their ride height and stiffness of the suspension while in full speed and real time, either by activation of the driver, and/or automatically controlled power. This additional flexibility allows the CV90 increase its speed up to 40% at 65 kph off-road, and around 90 kph on flat. It seems paradoxical to return to performance already achieved by a 1929 tanks, but the technological gap between the two explains why it took so long to return to such performance. A 1929 Christie would have been virtually naked when facing a CV90. It is fair to remember though that the CV90 (originally created by Hägglunds/Bofors and currently used by Scandinavian countries) is not really a MBT but more a valorized IFV, weighing 35 tonnes and powered by a Scania diesel developing up to 810 horsepower (MBT figures are generally 70 tons for 1500 hp).
In detail, the active suspension system is obviously different from that of the formula 1: weight constraints have nothing to do indeed. It measures somehow the movements of the hull and calculates how much each point raised vehicle speeds (ie its ground clearance). When the movement reading exceeds predetermined thresholds, the system begins to stiffen the suspension. When the vehicle goes down, the dampers stiffen and absorb shock better than would a passive system, and even better than a conventional hydropneumatic suspension. This system (whose specificities are classified defense secrets) can handle three times better hull motion relative to the original system, with impacts on large and small reliefs reduced in real time, but also to anticipate the use of Antilock brakes.
The following video shows the vehicle trials, jumping an obstacle (in “free flight”) of 30 to 60 km/h on flat but with some bumpy trails.
