Steel Armor Blaze of War. ArmA 3 isn't good for tank combat imo.

Make sure you have a high-performance machine and (if you want to play on the Net) a super fast connection.

Awesome game but heavy system demands.

Steel Beast Pro Personal Edition if you want proper simulator. Expensive, but ultra accurate.

If you have to go with ArmA 3 get ACE mod and RHS for current equipment.

Question

Hey, what happened to Steel Beasts? That was a good tank sim with professional features, adopted by some armies. Later on those guys made commercial simulators for the Budeswehr.
