Dynamic Technical Characteristics
Dynamic technical characteristics are particular parameters that can change their value depending on mounted equipment, level of the Major Qualification achieved by the crew members, trained Perks and Skills, particular types of Consumables, etc. Changes to the technical characteristics will be displayed in the Garage. For example, once all crew members train the Brothers in Arms perk, you will be able to see the effect it has upon the technical characteristics of the vehicle.
Tooltips for modules/additional equipment will also change. They will display not only information about the module/additional equipment, but also changes in technical characteristics that will occur after mounting the module/equipment. Now you will be informed about which of the characteristics will be affected after mounting the Improved Ventilation or food consumables.
In addition to the dynamic technical characteristics, the tooltips will display new information. For example, shell tooltips now contain information about armor-piercing capacity at a distance.
Vehicle Preview Mode
The preview mode allows players to view new vehicles before purchasing them, not only in terms of their technical characteristics but the vehicle itself: this means a preview of unpurchased vehicles in the Garage. The preview window can be opened from the Tech Tree and the Armory.
In the preview mode players will be able to view the vehicle and browse its technical characteristics in different configurations (top/stock gun, etc.).
