You are using inefficient vehicles for the vehicles you are trying to research.
For example, two of the vehicles in your line-up are effective up to Rank V. Not Rank VI and VII:
Italy doesn't have the same gaps and in fact has better vehicles in these positions.
Italy has the F-84G and F-84F to cover the roles of R2Y2 and Centuaro and R3 T106 FA in the positions where the Ho-Ri is.
Other gaps in any tree will be filled with real existing vehicles rather than paper tanks, which we have already said are no longer part of our addition policy.
Not exactly sure how as I said, both were introduced before the Italian Ground Forces tree was even a thing. It was over a year later before the Italian tree ground was even introduced, by which beforehand we had already made it clear of our intentions to cease adding any "paper tanks" for all nations.
November 2017 was the last Ho-Ri and December 2018 was the introduction of Italian tanks.
Over a year difference.
As I said, they would be replaced if they could be, but they cant.
Thats no reason however to then just add more paper tanks after
R2Y2 Was introduced at a time when paper was an option when there was no other alternative for a tree. Ho-Ri was also something similar but far more material was available than on P.43 and also much more of it was grounded. Either way, we no longer plan to introduce such machines and have made that clear for some years now.
Both of them would be removed and replaced if viable alternatives could be found and have sufficent material to introduce to the game. But for the time being none exist.
The fact they remain in game for now is not a reason or justification to add mor
A wooden mockup is still not anywhere close to a real vehicle and is not much more of a step than paper. It's not viable to be implemented currently.
To all relevant purposes, it's a paper vehicle. Arguing about it further than that because it had s Woden model meaningless.
We dont have any reports on these, so they will need bug reports.
I reported this myself after having it in Helicopter EC for 5 games in a row with the A-129 International. That issue is known, but if its also for the CBT we will just need some evidence (Screens + Replay) to add to the report.
Because this isn't a bug report or even the area to report issues
Bug reports go here please: https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/forum/1973-ground-vehicles/
We have no further open issues reported to us. If you believe there are further issues, please submit a bug report in the relevant area. Everything that was reported to us on the A-129CBT has now been fixed.
The only suggestion open at the moment is the question of weapons placement for AAMs on the inboard pylons, which requires further conformation and review:
Free Battle Pass
You could get free access to the next, 4th Battle Pass by completing enough stages in the current “Strength Athletics” season!
How does it work? Battle Pass rewards include “Upgrade for a vehicle coupon” - this season, for example, they appear at levels 105 and 125. These upgrades can be applied to previously received coupons for season vehicles so that they become tradable on the Market, or you can combine both improvements and get a full Battle Pass for the next season. This can be don
