So what happened to the extra vehicles that we were promised pre-release?
The original game had scope for some epic and awesomely fun tank battles. This is virtually impossible in RO2 with only two tank models and bugs/problems surrounding tanks in general. For example, the fact that you cannot escape from a damaged tank is beyond ridiculous. We have animations of movement within a tank but something similar to exit/enter a tank was impossible? If it took enough time it would prevent tank-jumping, which was a problem in the original.
I clearly remember that the release of extra tank/vehicle types was a promise the developers made prior to the original release and how long ago was that?
Rising Storm is fun and all and I'm happy that it's out but it doesn't mask the fact that one of the basic release promises has been blatantly broken.
More maps and different weapons are nice and all but they don't expand on the gameplay. It's more of the same. The original RO maps such as Arad, with numerous tank models and vehicles, gave the game a totally different dynamic. It was a relatively well regarded tank sim in its own right as far as I know. Why did you kill it?

We are finally getting two transport vehicles in the upcoming patch. You can test them out in the RS beta build. They have transports on the maps Barashka, Arad, and Rakowice.

That's awesome. Basically like two years for a couple of transports. The promises were that there would be regular releases of new tank models and other vehicles. Maybe the developers need to do some crowd funding and get some more staff aboard so they can actually keep these promises to some degree. I don't mind if it took a bit longer than expected but over two years for a couple of transports? How was it that the developers didn't know that their promises were totally unrealistic when they made them? I mean it's clear they were bull$h!t!!
