"Local obstacle handling

Generally improved the infantry's ability to maintain formation in
restrictive terrain; still not perfect, but every bit helps

When crossing bridges they will now reliably form a column on the
move and trail the lead character, then resume line formation after
leaving the bridge

Tanks will no longer drive around minor walls if their path is
routed across them if the wall is weak enough to be crushed

Reduced the resistance of the pine hedge allowing M113 and Piranha-
III vehicles to pass through "


This is great news especially if you use the infantry a lot...like me :) . It has been quite a struggle to coordinate dismounts especially in built up areas. Some of the problems have been:

   They get stuck behind walls
   They get stuck behind buildings

Lets see how the infantry handle the walls. Will they stop at any wall and wonder about? Would it not be great if they could climb the walls?  They have fixed an issue which allows tanks to drive through minor walls. This is great. Makes things a lot easier.

CHALLENGER2:

Added new ammunition: L26 APFSDS ("CHARM1" ... the real one)

Reduced the reflectivity of the antennas

Updated the turret interior (plugged a hole in the mantlet
region)

Updated the vulnerability definition

Removed the commander's MG that never was (but still produced
damage reports)


Nice. I hope the "vulnerability" update is in my favour...  ::)

Fixed bug #3376; when clients
Join in Progress
the counter for user kills and losses is no longer reset to zero for everyone (which also could affect the mission score)

This is also welcome :)


Fixed bug #3558; in network sessions, when starting in the vehicle commander's position the player will no longer be buttoned up but with binocul ar view magnification and reticule

Interesting

Fixed bug #2565; IFVs and APCs should no longer freeze in place

This is the dreaded "start-srtop" issue. This is when you dismount/mount from a vehicle and it refuses to operate correctly. It is difficult to plot a route and have it follow. It keeps stopping which leads the controller to "manuall drive" each vehicle. A royal pain. Hope it is resolved...

Well, i think it creates more bugs than it solves.The helicopters bug, the switch to player command trigger bug,problems with ammo range,and I have seen some IA problems when shooting the M1, not sure about what happened yet.

I think we need more time to gather information on issues within 3.023. There is a Hotfix coming in the new year.

We can then decide how we move forward. Maybe revert to 3.011? This would only happen if 3.023 was a problem

Regards

There are quite a few "problems" with 3.023

Maybe time to think about 3.011?
