You could as well try and see whether causing stress to your PC's hardware raises issues.
For CPU stress test you can use Prime95 (https://www.mersenne.org/download/). It needs no installation. Leave everything at defaults and let Prime95 run for a couple of hours and check back whether it reports any error.
For the GPU, use FurMark: https://geeks3d.com/furmark/
Let it run in full screen at your monitor's native resolution for half an hour at least and see whether your PC survives that stunt.

Mike, just to be clear, do you think my CPU and GPU are too weak for BAT? In my new pc I have an i9 as cpu and a rtx2080 as gpu....

Ciao!

No, not too weak, but maybe not operating reliably - which is unrelated to BAT, they might just not work reliable at all.

There are no real dangers for the components, right?

It's a stresstest and as such, if the components are weak, there is a certain danger.
If the rig is built accordingly, there's no danger.
If it breaks from doing such stress test, return it to the manufacturer. It won't do you no good in that case anyway and I take it that it's still within warranty.

Hi Mike, yesterday I played DCS for a couple of hours at maximum settings without problems, so, for the moment, I avoid to do the tests you suggest. I do not feel to risk....
If some indications of troubles does appear I will perform stresstest at that moment.

I will play BAT when the game starts ok, if not I reboot the pc and I'll try in another moment....

Ciao!
