We review the BMP-2, a 5 AFV in Armored Warfare (AW), with gameplay of tier 6 Lost Island and Port Storm battles.

Stat line (Lost Island): 3.3k damage, 8 kills
Stat line (Port Storm): 4.7k damage, 1.9k spotted, 4 kills

Strengths and Weaknesses
+ excellent sustained autocannon burst damage: 68 damage per round, salvo size of 27
+ excellent vision (545 with Sabrina and Augmented Optics Mk. 3)
+ good AP penetration (115)
+ good reload time for an autocannon
+ good forward speed
– poor cannon depression (-5)
– large profile for an AFV
– poor reverse speed
– hull traverse is poor, resulting in wide turns

A. Commander: Sabrina for vision and camo
B. Crew: Smooth Ride/Off-Road Driving, Marksman/Shoot From The Hip
C. Retrofits: Augmented Optics (Universal slot), Augmented Breech Lock or Chrome Barrel Lining (Firepower slot)

  1. Great video. Once again, you nailed it.

    I like that you kept that longform format, explaining your decision-making
    over the course of an entire battle (while highlighting vehicle strengths
    and weaknesses, map awareness, etc…), but still mixed in a few shorts
    clip to highlight some points.

  2. Glad to see you still uploading vids! You were one of the most intelligent
    players I saw in WoT, not to mention how friendly you were to people you
    didn’t even know.

  3. I loved the format of this video – the short clips early illustrating
    points about penetration etc, followed by a full game with detailed
    descriptions of the action and strategy. Also, glad to finally see you play
    the BMP!
