Not so sure about that. There's little evidence of a large blast. And you'd need quite a large IED to destroy an abrams considering most of them are just high explosive.
There's alot of evidence of fire though.
christ, slow down people. I can only look at so many images. :P
I think there was also a major problem with conventional round ammunition swelling up in hot and humid conditions (i.e Vietnam)and there were alot of misfires.
It did have alot of those issues sorted by the late 80s when it was used in the us invasion of panama and fared quite well. The size of the main gun actually caused enemy garrisons to surrender in fear of having it fired at them.
Very interesting tank, but it unfortunately some major problems.
lol, shot trap doesn't exist in this day and age.
Also the leopard 2 looks ugly with all this extra armour.
I disagree with the T-34 being the best tank in the history of armoured warfare. It's up there, but it's not the best.
Infact no one tank can be the best at anything because by making one thing good, you must sacrifice something else.
Just this one.
All the Ferdinands had the extra armour though.
I can't find much on it after it actually got to the front but I believe it was in action for a month or two before being destroyed by the Russians. The commander survived, however.
Not much to say. It was Porsche's rival to the Henschel Tiger design. It had engines that drove electric generators, which in turn powered electric motors connected to the rear sprockets.
It was a pointlessly complicated system, but Porsche liked experimenting with stuff like that.
Initially Hitler ordered 100 or so of them and wanted them sent to north Africa I think but it was eventually cancelled, but I can't remember much beyond that.
Eventually it became the basis for the Ferdinand tank destroyer which were split between pz. jager abt. 653 and 654 at Kursk.
Achtung panzer can probably explain anything further better than I can.
First I've heard of it. :S
Yeah personally I think it might just be a mishmash of ex-Soviet equipment forged into one vehicle, but I dunno, it could surprise us.
Not enough is known about this tank to conclude how well it would do in combat.
Even still it makes up a very small amount of NK's armoured forces.
Italy and North Africa.
why post the same stuff again?
wouldn't 9 pounders be Napoleonic artillery?
That or some modification of this. En.wikipedia.org
Either way, I don't think there were any 150mm guns involved.
Doesn't specify the armament anywhere.
Yeah I'd like a source on this.
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.
That tank gameplay looks amazing. I might well buy this.
True, but the LTraktor is definitely linked to the LK.
basically the predecessor
Unless it has something incapable of destroying armour, I generally regard assault guns as a sub-classification of a tank.
it was just the fact that you said 'gun'. An AT gun is like, a pak 40 or zis-3.
well yeah... That's why they went out of use 60 years ago. :P
I've never seen the photos of them
Is the panzer II being in the game based on 'Panzer-Kompanie Kreta' having them?
Downfall & Panzer Marsch (I'm assuming) are Ostheer.
Pleased to hear downfall is ostheer actually, interesting perspective to show that scenario from.
Nice to see the Hungarians. Even the Italians & Czechs get featured in some mods and games. The Hungarians are a rarity.
Ok so they'd call a temporary truce to tell me how to play Command and Conquer. Sweet.
I love combat mission
