Okay, I don't want to give the impression here that I'm going to start taking all your individual requests for TY cards of every variant of every tank or vehicle, so don't get your hopes up. But since there's no intermediate Soviet tank between BF's T-64 and the T-72B with Kontakt-5 ERA I previously posted here: TMP link I'll post a T-80B card Mark requested in that thread. This card can also be used for the T-64BV with Kontakt-1 ERA (like the nice one that Khurasan offers).





Just as I couldn't possibly make the T-72B cost as much as an Abrams in points due to its low rate of fire, I couldn't make the T-80B cost more than the 6 points the basic T-64 costs because the only advantage this tank has over the T-64 is a +3 bonus in Side Armor against HEAT weapons for its ERA (vs. the T-64's BDD armor), which doesn't justify a 1 point increase like the T-72B did. So to account for the fact that ERA is better than BDD I'm starting the minimum cost of a 3-tank T-80B "company" at 16 points, which comes out to an average of 5.8 points per tank in a maximized 10-tank company (for the T-64 it's 5.5 points). I think it's a fair compromise.

Looks like a nice addition to the WarPac TY forces.
