the discription of the suggested post:
i would like to suggest commanders copla's for tank sb to make the game mode more immerse and realistic.
i tried to collect pictures from inside the commander's copla's, but couldn't find anything (sadly). i did found pictures of outside the cupola.
i made a video of the vision ports in-game of the sheridan (it has windows (!) standart in-game. this is the only tank (as far as i am aware) that has actual windows in them.
https://youtu.be/lAVXW3_wkg0 (as of right now the video is BEEING uploaded, if it still isn't done, hang tight :P ).
most of the cupola's require little editing as they are the same.
list of US tanks with the same cuploa's with multiple vision slits/ports (why us tanks? answer: because i got most tanks of usa compared with other nations)
cupola nmbr 1 (not sure abouth historical name:) m4a1 (76), m4a2 (76), m4a3 (76), m4a3e2 (75), m4a3e2 (76), m26, t26e1, m46, t34, t32, m103, t95, cobra king, m26 t99, t28, t26e1, t29, m46 tiger.
t92 (heavily modified nmbr 1 copla)
cupola nmbr 2: m47, m41a1(slightly modified)
cupola nmbr 3: m60, m48 (modified), m60a1,
cupola nmbr 4: m551,
as you can see most cupola's are the same. this is the same case with the other nations.
warthunder: what abouth interiour of tanks? we have to model those!
me: don't worrie abouth that. they are already in-game in a low resolution version, and you guys added low-res bomber sights, so why not have low-res interiours (these are already in-game and require no to little change). the only thing you guys need to add is movable hatches and actual ''windows''.
warthunder: what abouth copla's without multiple vision slits?
me: well yeh.. eh... you see.. eh... i have thought abouth that, and eh.... it seems like those tanks would need to use their 1 or 2 vision ports. these could rotate (and british ones could elevate), but i haven't really thought this out yet myself. luckly you guys are a big team with many open-minded people (i hope) and so you guys can think of something or brainstorm with me.
pictures of cupola's (as i already said i could not find any pictures of inside the cupola's or the commander seat).
sherman (desighn 1)
m60 (desighn 3)
m48 patton 3
ooh look, looks like i found one after all. the enteriour would be low-resolution, but the view ports would all be in there
and a panzer 4G commander's cupola

(also this website has a nice album of interiour panzer 4g pics :3
i hope you guys will consider this
final question from the mods (i assume this is something that they will ask:)
mods: what will this add?
me: gameplay wise, not much, but it would add realism and immersion for normal players, and players that use a VR-headset. this means, better product (warthunder) and this means more profit ($$$). (sorry for me talking like this, but i have done retail on my school and this formula is right and works).
