GHPC 20220508 patch notes

GHPC has been updated to version 20220508!  As always, you can find the public demo here.  Patrons can find the full demo using the usual link, which will be shared again in the Patreon post for the update.


This update introduces the T-72M tank, an export variant of the early T-72.  This variant of T-72 was quite common in East German service, especially in the early '80s before the T-72M1 made much of an appearance there.  The example in GHPC features the same side skirts and TPD-K1 gunner's sight complex as the T-72M1, though it lacks the composite turret and weld-on glacis reinforcement plate, and it may or may not have the smoke launcher system as an upgrade.

In addition to the new vehicle, we've added two new missions and an array of  improvements, which are listed below.  Some of the work done behind the scenes for this patch also lays the groundwork for larger features coming soon!
