I sincerely wish you guys were getting paid for the work you do on this mod, it truly is of a professional studio standard.
Anyhow, are there any plans to do anything on the CoH2 engine should they release modding tools? I don't have my hopes set on anything considering how difficult it was to get this up and running for CoH1 in the first place, but I'm just curious.
it'd be cool if you could balance them by giving them limited fuel and ammunition, but afaik you can't do that without extensive coding if at all in the CoH engine?
Fantastic work once more, guys.
Voted this for MOTY as per usual.
at first I was a bit iffy about this mod, but it's shaping up nicely from what I can see. Tracking.
so the fahrpanzer returns!
also does the bagpiper actually affect gameplay or is it purely cosmetic/for humour? either way it's a great addition.
They actually did create a scratch built tiger replica for this film: Wehrmacht-awards.com
However it was left unused for unknown reasons. The one you see here was based on the is-2, to make it look like the tiger P I imagine.
This, Steel fury and t-34 vs tiger are the best we've got as of now.
wait no EF, totally forgot.
Can you actually have more than 4 factions in CoH? I've never seen it attempted.
Curious to see how this is going to work.
The French are quite likely to have the Schneider. (Can't completely confirm this)
The 2C is out however, no post war or experimental tanks are going to be included.
It was scrapped after the mod tools were released and the factions were restructured and replanned AFAIK. I wouldn't expect it to make a reappearance any time soon.
kind of weird that the Germans don't have a HMG squad, though I guess the LMG fills the role well enough.
The French yes, the Americans no.
The Whippet has some slight issues on non level terrain and the track animations for it look odd at times, but overall I think you've done the tanks really well.
I knew the day would come eventually.
is that a saint-chamond I see? ;)
The_Integral always provides great insight with his comments, unfortunately you only see him every blue moon.
Jagdpanzer IV is a sexy machine.
So you even started on WW1 based vehicles? :P
it's all just ironing out bugs and balancing as of now, the content (Atleast for the Brits and Germans) is done as far as I've read.
Just be patient.
aaand you guys made it into the top 100 second year in a row without trying. :P
I think we'd be in some serious shite if the Germans had bazookas in the first world war. :P
Just to reassure people this mod is still being worked on.
The only reason I can see as to why this page hasn't been updated is because Rataconfusca controls the page and he hasn't been active as of late.
I don't think the maus should ever be added in any way, shape or form. It was a near immobile brick with a load of firepower and really would not fit into the gameplay at all.
Because this isn't blue shift, it's a re-envisioning. Technically they can add or take whatever they want.
ignore my post
Just this one.
All the Ferdinands had the extra armour though.
This is a f*cking good replica. About as close as we'll get to a functional a7v.
The A7V's main problem was its mobility. Being a big metal box, it struggled with the battlefield of ww1.
On paper it was superior to the mark I-IV though.
Unless it has something incapable of destroying armour, I generally regard assault guns as a sub-classification of a tank.
It does exist as a concept, but just not officially under the designation 'v-44'.
There's something I like about that camo.
'tacticians' being the key word there. ;)
Also, helicopters aren't exactly built to fight eachother.
Aw, this was all i had to save me from my friend's destructive sherman hordes. :P
I really do like the idea of needing bushes for the camouflage ability though.
This is ok, but dear god don't spam 10,000 pictures at once.
Nah, I know this has been posted somewhere back there.
I'm pretty sure you posted this a while ago, tanker. :P
And by a while I mean well over a year, so it doesn't really matter.
Oh, you mean warfare films in general.
Still, tanks don't make much of an appearance. And when they do they're usually genuine.
I have to say though, the S-tank is the coolest thing ever.
It's like a new trend just to slap ERA on every old tank you have.
"THERE, GOOD AS NEW"
Err.. Has there ever been a t-34 in a film WITH hollywood graphics? Eastern front films are so rare in Hollywood that that's never actually been done afaik.
I made this over a year ago, haha.
Pretty much the same premise with the monster anyway.
I don't even know how many times this image has been posted now. X_X
Also just to clarify, the nuclear tests weren't done by us, they were just done in our territory by the British.
Very much an improvement over your previous work. I look forward to seeing more.
Knew I was forgetting something.
The leopard 2 has extra armour fitted to the face of the turret. Not to mention most western MBTs still have loaders whereas in most eastern countries they've been replaced by autoloaders.
Err... not exactly.
The British operated the P-51 under lend-lease but as far as i know never produced them?
I mean you just need to look at the name of the company that produced it to know it wasn't a British plane.
"North American Aviation"
Yeah unless there's under 6 months (Even that's stretching it) between posts i don't really bother pointing them out anymore.
Good image, overly patriotic caption.
I was actually confused by the GW tiger and mistook it for a dickermax or something.
Also, might i ask what that allied AFV is at the bottom in the centre?
I can image the confusion one would have if they were approached by one of these.
Which one? ... lol.
Yeah, this is just a replica.
I don't think this works the same way as the one in the link you posted.
The magnet one is just silly outright. :P
I think you've wrapped this up nicely :D
Just making it clear that i have no problems with the KV-1 (Except maybe it was undergunned later in the war). With that said, i'd say although the KV-2 may have played a part in preventing the Germans from reaching moscow, but their main problem was that they were completely unprepared for such a winter. As a result, none of their tanks would start in some cases and many men froze to death. The Soviets on the other hand, were obviously well prepared and could counterattack at a time where the German army had no strength.
Regarding distances, it may have to drive 500 metres to defend something, but when the enemy is gone it's going to have to drive further obviously.
On the problems themselves, the KV chassis wasn't originally built to take such a turret and one could imagine the extra weight of the turret would take a heavy (lol) toll on the suspension and transmission. On top of that, the KV had problems with the clutch being too lightly constructed.
Also, according to 'Russian Tanks of World War II Stalin's Armored Might', the 41st tank division had 33 KV-2s and only 5 of those were not broken down.
By useless i mean the fact that there were often more of them being serviced than were in action from mechanical breakdowns alone.
They may not be useless in combat, but there were so little of them in combat a time that the difference they made was insignificant. The idea of a Heavy tank in WWII was doomed from the start in my eyes. The only really significant success they had was at prokhorovka. All the other successes, such as Billote's rampage through stone in 1940 or the KV-2 that held up the German column or even Wittman's rampage in 1944, were just tactical successes that contributed nothing to the overall battle.
With that said, I don't think the heavy tank concept is completely worthless. The KV-1 and Tiger 1 were brilliant designs, with both having some great success in various stages of the war. I just don't think the KV-2 is a good design because of its extremely limited mobility, overtaxed engine, limited reload rate, high profile, etc.. It could be a great tank in the right hands, but it was too slow and cumbersome to have a real impact on the war. Also the fact that in 1941 the Soviet army was a real mess and there was no coordination for any KV-2 units or anything.
Similar case with the king tigers, too unreliable and far too little of them produced to have any impact on the war. Though they did rack up some crazy kill ratios, it couldn't outmatch Soviet or American production.
Wait, he was a tanker?
He just got about 200x more awesome.
OMG! it looks so real!
Yeah, in the thumbnail i thought it WAS a new model.
I laughed at this arguement more than the actual joke.
This stuff is confusing as hell.
But hey, atleast it looks cool.
That red 109 looks like something the baron would fly if he were around long enough. :P
in that case, this tank is just an ordinary t-55. It comes up for ramses II in google images but it's not.
You have to ask, why would such a recent tank that has never seen combat be in a museum?
This: Img228.imageshack.us Is the Ramses II
super pershing? Is it just a reskinned pershing or have you actually implemented a different model?
Whoa, that camo actually looks like it'd be effective from a distance.
I like this image. Mostly because i haven't seen many images of 35(t)'s in combat though.
Nice find, tanker.
It'd be about as useful as a t-35 tbh.
It's a beached... train. Pretty damn cool.
There was even a balloon tank fad there for a while. :P
Indeed, though i still love this image.
Pity this isn't ingame yet.
Because the cats they've named them after are usually the toughest animals you can encounter in the wild.
Then again, so did the British with the tortise and flying elephant.
I find it interesting that the Germans had a super heavy tank program going at the end of both world wars.
Ultimate low budget flying.
Indeed. The most realiable sources are books generally. Though there is some good info on the internet.
Ultrapack 3.0RC apparently.
Your mapping seems to have improved considerably!
This has great potential!
I found it in a news source. I'll try and dig it up again, can't remember who wrote it exactly.
Yeah, it is true that the US was more forgiving to prisoners and the German populace. But this was at a point where Hitler thought he could still stop the Soviets by devoting more resources to the east. However this would have just delayed the inevitable.
The thing is, they're designed to fight a conventional enemy. Not people hiding in caves or amongst crowds.
Though from what i've read, they made some miscalculations about the air pressure or temperature or something like that and that's why they weren't so 'stealthy' during the Bin Laden raid.
... For the Germans.
By 1918 British and French tanks were everywhere. The Germans did have a resonable tank force, but it was nowhere near the size of the other nation's tank forces.
I posted a similar one a while back, but it's not the same.
Watch out for that block!
Those skirts look awesome.
I hope this is a joke. World of Tanks is as far from a simulator as you can get.
oooh yeah, that's a swedish babe right there.
Yeah, this is the ISU-152BM
The normal ISU-152 is much less impressive.
I've seen this photo before, i can't remember whether it's 'shopped or the variant with the longer barrel.
haha, i agree!
Indeed he does.
Rise of flight.
I think you're just trolling at this point.
Who said it was south ossetia?
But anyway, the point i'm trying to make is, it's retarded to post images of destroyed tanks because you don't like a country without a reason. Even with one, this is considered 'propaganda'.
However, if it was for historical reasons not fueled by hate for any nation the i would not complain.
Because the soviets fought in the Battle of Poland too.
As for the mod: It's nice to see something different for a change.
Not exactly since it shows the t-34s are about to be blown up by panzerfausts and panzerschrecks.
oh and what would a 'panzernest' be?
Awesome doctrines. Though I'm curious as to what these 'foreign tanks' are.
This looks amazing! I wish i'd heard of it before.
And this is the German supplied tree?
I take it this is the soviet supplied china tree?
ABRAM IS BEST TANK OF ALL TANK. IT IS INVINSIBAL ANd CanT BLOW UP. T90 SUX AND CANT DESTRY ABRAM.
But seriously, it's not a bad tank but not invincible. ;)
Just putting that out there for all those 12 year old tards.
Can't disagree with you there.
No italians yet?
It's just strange that every account of it seems to be the complete opposite of another one it doesn't seem right.
And i think the sherman 76w and the T-34/85 are pretty even in terms of combat, it all comes down to what hands they're in. For example in north korea they both engaged eachother fairly successfully but i think the shermans got the upper hand in the end. Had the t-34 been in soviet hands, it may have been a different story.
damnit wot spam.
Indeed, the subject details are very sketchy. Some sources say the Russians loved them, some say they hated them.
Mideast crisis? I need to dig up my copy of generals.
Yeah. H-35 > R-35
I honestly don't believe the short barrel panzer IV and the t-34 are comparable. It proved extremely difficult to destroy one with it.
I also laughed at the crusader and panzer 3 in the light tanks.
Those French tanks make the Japanese ones look good.
This seems completely unrelated to the actual story of the mod.
That makes more sense.
Or maybe it's not a pun? I don't believe they would put that much detail into a t-55 model for a visual play on words.
'shop. The Panzer I chassis couldn't take the weight of the panzer 3 turret. Not to mention it wouldn't fit.
Does he have any extra traits? Or is it just to add more variety and indicate he's sort of from a different regiment/part of the combine?
The turret isn't fitted to the platform properly :\
you should make it one time use only
They did infact capture and use fireflies, the Germans used virtually every single vehicle they could get their hands on, even the old FT-17s they captured in france.
Sure they had quite a few losses, but i have to agree with you here too comrade 50 million is a complete overstatement.
The panzer IV and III could probably have engaged them, but little numbers of them were fielded at the time.
So, DMS and 1C have given everyone permission to use their models?
Obyekt 279, now this? SUPERFUTURESOVIETS
It also tried to kill Otto Carius D:
Why do i feel as though i'm about to be hit by a load of missile exaust?
Where is this?
Not fun when you're going up against panzers D:
It's about time someone put this on moddb.
had little to no effect on the war, but still and interesting design.
well, yeah. But i'm just saying it's interesting is all.
interesting, i've always thought the concept of the assault gun was phased out after ww2.
I've seen that turret mounted on a number of different hulls. Wheeled or tracked, i've never known what it was called.
ah, thanks to both of you for clearing that up. It's just usually when something has an acronym at the end of it, it's usually upgraded or something.
So, is there any major difference between the n.A. version and the normal one?
The one to the left is the most realistic.
You still need to change the skin on that tank, it looks terrible.
Hell, even a biography or something would be interesting.
Had the 150 or 170mm kwk been invented, it could've made for an interesting battle.
Yeah i see where you're coming from....
Anything's better than a sherman
If the battle of kursk is heaven, i'd hate to see hell.
On a more serious note, good work dude.
saw that when i went to britain last year. Pretty good museum.
Anyone find it ironic that he's the one that posted the picture up yet he needed to ask whether it was based on the f-14? :P
C&C cutscene? The cheesy cgi makes me think of it.
Yeah thought i saw it before.
That was the name of it! (I forgot it so i just got it from the bf1918 mod) :P
Still, i'd imagine it'd have it's flaws. How the hell would they recover it if it broke down? :P
As for this, one hit on a wheel with an arty shell and the whole thing collapses in on itself.
Be warned it can get pretty damn hard
Must've been hell to actually turn it. Not much use in urban areas.
This has promise. Keep it up!
there we go
Those crazy dutch!
Yeah i don't really like this design. It's just not... right
See, it's the oil companies that kill off these kinds of innovative inventions.
ahhh type 59s...
Frankly i think i just think it looks too much like the apache. It even has the same calibre main armament! Though that's not to say it's not effective, but personally prefer the design of the ka-50.
Gotta admit, the cannon doesn't look very intimidating.
obvious shop is obvious.
I'll be honest, this needs alot of work, but it's a good start.
not easy if it's firing on you from 4kms away D:
They made the turret too big compared to the hull
I wish :P
Another BTR series copy imo
Or not? Wiki says it's based on the LAV.
It looks more look a btr from the front
holy ****, looking good
I just talked to herc about you. I have a new found respect.
This is awesome.
That's nothing but your opinion. Other people will say otherwise.
Either way i agree with the hl2 campaign being buggered. Synergy used to be so much more, now it's just hl2 co-op with a couple of custom maps.
Thought it was phillip :P
Zombie mod, though i don't recall shermans being in it
Gah! I'm sick of this being confused with the regular tiger >.>
Read My tank is fight before you make any statements like that. I was talking to master btw.
Damned good article
Good to see people are aware of the A7V
Fun fact: The Germans were developing their own nuclear weapons without the help of einstein
Why would you think it's dead, it only appeared a couple of days ago :S
Say if a grenade went off, you'd have better protection from the shrapnel with that than the pickelhaube
It's about time :D
Don't know why, but that combine cracks me up
Well, in a way it looks like it
Alright, it doesn't look bad.
I don't remember any swat teams in black mesa
Wait, how do you mount stuff on it?
There's a fix somewhere on the forums isn't there?
Great tank destroyers :D. Though from what i've heard, the Elefant was terrible in combat.
Wait, so does the train move or is it static?
Keep up the good work
Ok im bringing this mod back I have to host on hl2files until i can get a site.
yay! its here
go tim jim go!
please dont let this mod die
reply to my pm
hes banning to many mods
hi try to keep synergy alive
tell that to ~x~
yay first comment and nice mod
i wanted this :(
