    Update 1.12 - General feedback

    I am not sure if this is the correct thread for this feedback. I played several matches as tanker (mostly Stug III, Tiger I and Pz.Kpfw. IV) and noticed on several occasions that the US M2A2 and SU T-38 tanks are especially hard to kill. They take many many shots to get killed. I suspect that this could be because the ammo storage racks are rather small as they only have MG ammo? I think this could be fixed by lowering the overall structural health?

    Self-Propelled Anti-Tank guns for Infantry

    I am not the one to decide but personally I think that the other choices are better than the 76mm AA gun mounted on a truck. The other choices simply fit better balance wise to the other nations stuff. As I already said above, the Sd.Kfz. 251/22 with the 7,5 cm Pak 40 should not even be questioned. It is THE perfect vehicle for this role, same as the M3/M3A1 with the M1897A4. They are must haves. Btw generally speaking I think that the addition of those vehicles is a perfect idea and will fit into the game nicely. Those vehicles fill a role where there was a significant need for.

    Not sure if we should go with heavy AA guns mounted on motor carriages. The Germans have several 8,8 cm Flak 18/36/37 mounts, but the US have none. And honestly I think there are other, more suitable vehicles for this role which have already been posted. But if Reto.Christiano would consider those too I can post a few 88s SPGs. But those might be quite overpowered compared to the other nations.

    It is this one, has 9 Panzerschreck launchers as far as I know. But it might be a bit overkill....

    Ah thanks, missed that post

    Heavy Tank Destroyers

    Just out of curiosity: Which vehicles were ultimately decided on? Jagdpanther SU-100 M36 Jagdtiger ISU-122 or ISU-122S? M36B1 ? I am just guessing :-)

    Self-Propelled Anti-Tank guns for Infantry

    Another comment, I think that the Sd.Kfz. 251/22 with 7,5 cm Panzerjägerkanone 40 (please don't call it Panzerabwehrkanone as this is wrong!) and M3/M3A1 GMC with the M1897A4 are must haves! And I would include as many secondary MGs as possible, most of those vehicles mentioned above could mount a MG in some form (facing rearwards or forward). This should help for self defence and also against strafing aircraft (open topped vehicles!).

    About the M3 GMC with 75mm M1897A5, shouldn't this be the M1897A4? At least according to my manual... Btw you could also use the M3A1 GMC, this variant also exists. Other than the already mentioned stuff for the US, I don't have any alternatives in this category. For the Soviets there would theoretically also be the ZIS-41 halftrack with a ZIS-2 gun. But I am not s specialist for those, not sure how many of those were produced, I am sore somebody else can tell more about this?

    The following alternatives come to my mind in addition to the above mentioned stuff for Germany: (Official designations according to the German manuals) Sd.Kfz. 250/8 mit 7,5 cm Kanone (either 7,5 cm Kanone 37 or 7,5 cm Kanone 51 depending on production date) (is able to fire HEAT rounds) Sd.Kfz. 250/10 für eine 3,7 cm Pakbedienung Sd.Kfz. 250/11 mit s.Pz.Büchse 41 Sd.Kfz. 251/9 mit 7,5 cm Kanone (either 7,5 cm Kanone 37 or 7,5 cm Kanone 51 depending on production date) (is able to fire HEAT rounds) Sd.Kfz. 251/10 für eine 3,7 cm Pakbedienung
  10. It would add so much to the immersion and atmosphere.... I would happily share my research for this. Any chance please? @Reto.Christiano

    Learn to flank. I too had a game on airfield and as a passionate Stug player it was fantastic. Do you even know how APCR works in real life? It is a subcaliber round with very fast v0. But the penetration power is only good at short range. But a penetrating APCR will do less post penetration damage as it does not have a bursting charge. So you have to aim for the crucial components to do some heavy damage to the tank.
  12. Too bad it was only used after 1945....
  13. Same here. It is supposed to be like that. Ever tried to drive a 1940s era motorcycle offroad or in a wood? Good luck...
  14. It is a bike, this is how it should be.

    I played 2 full matches with different tanks and actually it was great. When they fix the sound it will be one of the best H&G versions ever if you ask me.
