Also I noticed that there are several new IFV, MBT, etc that have been added that have Jet purpulsion units (the machinery that makes armored vehicles operate in water) but out of those I haven't noticed one that could actually float. It may not be neccassary but floating tanks are fun to mess around with as I'm sure many would agree.

I don't really like the floating attribute...it really bounces...like a toy...even in peaceful looking rivers;

Some tanks don't float and have an ability to basically be a lake submarine maybe we could add that ability as well.

Just because they're capable of going underwater for a certain amount of time, does not mean they can go deep in the ocean and manage to even come back alive. The tank will simply get stuck on the mud.

Most tanks that submerge have a limit of about 3 feet above the turret if it has a snorkel and is water tight. You gotta remember that the exhaust has to go somewhere and that's what causes most vehicles to not run underwater.

You don't choose the tank. The tank chooses you, and when it does respect it and it will respect you.

If the devs made it unlimited time, then people will only stay underwater the whole time. The point of limited time is to prevent camping.

Most tanks have to be outfitted though too. What the game has are the non underwater equipped anyway.

I know but maybe it could be an option in room setting to chose watter damage on or off
