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.
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 Not to mention most western MBTs still have loaders whereas in most eastern countries they've been replaced by autoloaders.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 :(
Switch it to openGL in options.
Though not entirely impossible (referring to your German tanks comment) as various nations sold Syria some old panzer IVs in the 60s and they saw service during the water war and the 6 day war of '67.
A vehicle still shrouded with much mystery.
No kill like overkill.
Since trenches are enterable as cover I'd assume this is possible. Only it'd be a spiked club charge instead of bayonets. :P (They don't have a bayonet animation yet so the melee weapon is a spiked club.)
Sorry, if i came off abit harsh. :P
But i honestly have no clue where it says they went at 80-100mph.
And my sources are various books by Thomas Jentz and Hilary L. Doyle. As well as this: Wwiivehicles.com
Every day bro... Every day...
err... Most engagements involving tigers took place beyond 2km, Well beyond the range of the T-34s gun. And 60mm of sloped armour did not translate to 120mm, it was more like 60-80. And although the t-34/85 could infact take out a tiger, it was difficult to do from long distances because as griffinz said, the main gun wasn't very good.
I don't know where you're getting this, but you're posting alot of false information.
With the exception of the 85 which i think could penetrate it at close range with certain ammunition.
Also where the hell did you get those speed stats?
If that were the case, they'd be the fastest tanks in existence.
that description is impossible to read.
Yeah it's clearly based on a different chassis, but they made it into a panzer III mock up and i'm not sure exactly what it's based on.
Not the same tank though. The one at the end of the teaser was the one that looks like a Merkava.
Repost from way back but i still like this.
Err... I won't ask how you got these photos.
They've evolved. Their faces have adapted to the environment and become blocks of ice.
I think you need a FAQ. The same questions get asked atleast once every page.
Ah, fair enough.
Wait, this was in 2006? Where did the Merkava's myth of invincibility come from then?
I meant the stubby panzer IV, that's why i said 'original'. :P
PSO is designed for urban areas iirc, thus the barrel is shorter. The A6 on the other hand is designed for tank vs tank combat.
Reminds me of the roles of the original Panzer IV and Panzer III.
Is that the 'hedi' variant of the A7V in that trailer? :D
didn't even imagine it was possible to get a zeppelin into the MoW engine.
oh wow, I can appreciate the detail!
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.
The_Integral always provides great insight with his comments, unfortunately you only see him every blue moon.
Jagdpanzer IV is a sexy machine.
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.
Panzer 14? What was between the normal maus and this?
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 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.
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.
True, but the LTraktor is definitely linked to the LK.
You've gotta wonder how this & the Matilda II are even related.
It's so difficult to find information about late war Hungarian armour. Very interesting stuff though.
I used to love pcpowerplay and was a frequent reader, but RPS has since taken over for me.
Looks cooler than the actual Abrams.
Tracks look waaay too thin for a vehicle of that size.
See that tiny bit of red paint on the side of the turret?
The m41 looks a little large, but the m48 is pretty good.
That's more like it!
You could get nuke tanks in crysis 1. Awesome game.
Did you honestly think they just let the Germans roll over them?
This comment has been posted in a private group.
Tank looks shopped in.
I may be wrong though.
Also very much depends on where the Tiger hits the IS-2. Pretty sure frontally it was invulnerable to the 88 L/56 at certain distances. The IS-2s problem was that it had poor optics combined with the fact that it could only average 2-3 rounds per minute. And iirc it only carried 8 AT rounds.
I said I wouldn't go into detail, but I couldn't help it. :P
The gameplay feels way too dry IMO. It might just be me, but I found it really boring after a while.
They could've been of use during the initial North Korean offensive, when most of the tank battles took place.
Aye. Only about 200 were built, but they certainly outclassed the Pershings/early Pattons that were stationed there. The Americans had caught up by the late 50s though.
Panthers, I'd say. That and German industry was trying to spit out ATLEAST 8 different 'main' production vehicles by 1944. I don't think it could be stretched much more.
edit: was this it? Static.stomp.com.sg
It was both. Only this was the 'PzKpfw NbFz VI', not the 'PzKpfw VI'.
It was more of a sarcastic reply to griffnz' comment.
They clearly copied this off the arado 234...
I miss this comic
FH1 to be precise.
Blast from the past
The t-34 and the tiger aren't comparable. And they weren't meant to be.
The tiger was built to counter the KV-1.
It's like i'm back in 2009
So wait, how does the 262 work? I don't recall any information being posted about it.
It's an ERA box...
It's not related to this mod at all, that's for sure.
You should find numerous mission packs and mods that add more tanks there. You might have to dig abit for the English patch for steel panzers if you want to play that and can't read Russian. :P
Thanks for putting them in Volchonok. :D
I'd also like to point out that its top speed was 13km/h. :P
Edited the description, but there really isn't all that much information on this vehicle.
He'd be more likely to ask for a retirement home than a tank.
I always thought this was a strange look for the panther, not saying it's bad and i know it really existed.
But it makes it look like it has ERA or something.
that is awesome.
yeah, but the 152 was designed as more of a direct fire offensive weapon. Thus there were more cases of it.
Couldn't the s-tank also 'tilt'?
That thing was awesome.
as well as the vision slit and the fact that the turret seems so big.
Now THIS ...
... Is a worthy tiger replica.
also, notice how the mantlet is different from the one in the previous image. This was because Mephisto was produced by Röchling and Wotan by Krupp when a final design was agreed upon.
Is it just me or does the lighting look abit messed up on the turret?
Yeah, i think the panther is abit more comparable as that was upgraded a few times and had many things in development until the end of the war thus kept up with them.
In 1943, medium tanks as well as outdated heavy tanks were the only things the Allies had. Whereas the Germans had the tiger & Ferdinand in 1943.
It was the tank of its time with these mediums and was considered outdated by mid-1943. By the time the IS-2 and pershing were introduced the next generation of German heavies had come along and thus the only thing they can be compared to is the king tiger or the upgraded panther.
What i'm trying to say is the only reason they're being compared like this is because these were the best tanks the Allies had at the height of the Tiger's service.
I was referring to the Panzer I. :D
Yeah actually where did this come from?
There were A7Vs with skulls and crossbones painted on their bows. Unrelated to the SS.
What mod is this?
This is nice of you. :D
It's funny because this is probably one of the least silly things in the mod.
yeah i know, i just thought i'd mention it.
Pretty sure lloydyboy was thinking of the one on the right.
It had too many mechanical problems and there were too little of them built to have any effect on the German invasion.
Sure, they had some tactical victories, but so did the Germans in 1944/1945. I use 'useless' in the same vein that the king tiger is useless in that it was 70 tonnes and was extremely prone to mechanical breakdowns.
The fact that it couldn't even go up slight inclines due to the weight of the turret also contributes to my conclusion.
Also pretty much everything the intergral said.
No worries, it'll seduce it with its sexy, mesmerizing paint and then hit it in the face with a 152mm round.
can't disagree here
All these proclaimed "Nazis" actually know nothing about German AFVs and only like them 'because they're cool'.
Atleast all the ones i've come across.
This is concept art for turning point: fall of liberty.
It ended up being a **** game.
Also, thos os supposed to be what the development of the maus lead to. But tbh i think the developers just got confused and thought the maus and ratte were the same thing.
and since it's a t-55, you might even question if it has any electronics at all. :P
Right, but it was repainted to european colours and insignias?
Also, what makes this different from a standard t-55? I couldn't find anything on it.
I'd say not since a melee system in CoH would be very difficult to implement.
Or so i've heard.
Emphasis on the.. TANK MINE!
That is a terrible yet strangely funny joke.
Does anyone have an image of King tigers in the factory? (Aside from that one where it's just the turrets)
I've been able to find images of panthers, tigers and just about all the panzers during their assembly, but no such luck with the king tiger.
Still got the old pic for comparison?
True those do look nice, but unfortunately not all of them have cool looking stuff like that.
Not trying to offend anybody here, but all these t-72 upgrades look exactly the same and seem unappealing visually. But i guess that doesn't matter in combat.
I almost forgot about this mod. It looks more amazing than ever. :D
Hell, i'd buy one.
Just so people don't get the wrong impression. It's unfortunate not many people play this mod.
Apart from that japanese server.
from here on, RRs0507 shall be known as...
The Lion Dude
Another one of your 'Alternate history' maps?
That looks really cool.
It doesn't look very well protected tbh.
Lighting doesn't look right. But this has to be one of the more convincing images.
I thought this was artwork in the thumbnail.
That was amazing, i might dig up my copy of UT just to play this.
I must admit it does add some variety.
Ah right, i haven't really been through the ship lovers archives. :P
Based on the type59-II
much debate over what these were based on so i'm not too sure.
it's a mix between a vehicle in the BTR series and an sdkfz 251 with 'stuka on foot' rockets.
Not to be picky, but you don't need to be an accuracy freak to know that it's a jet plane.
The closest things i can find are the T-37, T-38 and Komsomolets. But they all have the drive sprocket in the front.
I was thinking that, but it only has 2 return rollers.
This image has been posted before but i can't quite remember the name.
beat me to it
Nah, it's not the comanche.
I've been unable to find any information on it, i don't think they even revealed the name or designation.
Frankly, i don't think any tank could withstand that. :S
Ludendorff bridge was a kick in the balls for the Germans, they couldn't destroy the damn thing.
I know, however i'm pretty sure it would've seen service into the cold war.
Impressive as hell yet near useless on the modern battlefield. Would have done some damage in any 60s cold war conflict though.
It does get annoying when something gets posted and everyone's already seen it.
It would be very interesting to see as a reward unit, but i'm not sure how you'd make it different from the tetrarch.
Who needs a chassis when you have an L/70? :P
I think i see what you're getting at.
It certainly looks overloaded.
ahh yes, i see now.
But everything else resembles a Mi-28.
I thought so, it's just that it has no tail rotor.
Portal storm indeed. This looks amazing.
You're right, it isn't small. However, the soviets considered this tank a failure as it couldn't even climb a hill due to the weight of the turret, hence in any further heavy tank designs they tried to minimise the weight and size.
You may have studied history, but you clearly don't know much about the history of soviet armour.
Tank battles did happen though. :D
I don't think it's much worse than an ordinary T-55.
Can't say it's the best map for tigers. I found it pretty funny that the Russian equivalent on it is the KV-2, assuming i'm remembering it right.
A very mysterious tank, this one. Not much is known about it, but i looked it up and it has an autoloader apparently.
Anyway looked it up on wikipedia this is what it says regarding the armour:
"The Leclerc has the Galix combat vehicle protection system from GIAT, which fires a variety of smoke grenades and infra red screening rounds, as well as anti-personnel grenades.
The hull and the turret are made of welded steel fitted with modular armour, which can be replaced easily for repair or upgraded over the years. The French army in the late seventies rejected Chobham armour as being overly specialised in its optimisation to defeat hollow charge-weapons; it therefore opted to develop a steel perforated armour system, comparable to that on the early Leopard 2. When the Leclerc was introduced in the early nineties this was still considered adequate, due to the larger thickness of its modules compared to the armour of other modern western tanks, made possible — for a given weight limit — by the compact design of the tank as a whole. However during the nineties standards for tank armour protection increased, as exemplified by the Leopard 2A5, its main rival on the export market, being fitted with an additional spaced armour system. Thus it was decided to follow the Germans (Leopard 2A4) and British (Challenger 2) in their application of a titanium-tungsten system, which was introduced to the Leclerc in 2001, in Batch 10. The inner spaces are filled with NERA."
Well, originally it was designed as a last miute tank to hold off any Japanese invasion, but Australia didn't exactly have the industrial capability to keep up production. So as soon as other tanks became available and it was evident there wasn't going to be a Japanese invasion, production was halted so more resources could be diverted to other things.
I'm not entirely sure why why didn't use some of the already produced models in service though.
Yeah, there's something appealing about it.
Though you can't say they exactly 'Liberated' anyone but themselves. It's not liberation when you force one party to rule in a country and don't give the people any choice.
But yes, from the 1960s - mid 1980s life in the USSR was fairly god apparently.
No, i said that i would say exactly the same thing, get that into your head.
I would be saying the same thing if it were infantry and were posted up with the same intention.
It's not impossible that it was thermite IEDs, but it just seems implausible.
No, i don't forbid anything. But racial hatred for no reason at all is a bad thing, it's even worse if it's in retalation for someone elses racial hatred. They enjoyed seeing Iraq bombed in 2003 because they were at war, i'm not saying that's a good thing, but it's certainly more justified.
Questioning why the Americans enjoyed seeing Iraqi troops bombed is like asking why the Soviets liked to see the Germans bombed in WWII..
They needed 600kg of the stuff to destroy that car...
Also, thermite tends to burn downwards, so unless you plan on leaping on top of a tank with 600 kilograms of thermite (Virtually impossible) you're not going to have much luck.
what are your sources for this thermite ied theory? i can't seem to find anything on it.
Are they 'de-crewable'?
It's more that fact the OP seems to enjoy seeing destroyed American tanks.
But it's not even remotely close to a tank...
This is what you get when anyone can post media on a mod page :\
Everything looks so beautiful in the Arma 2 engine, it's a pity it has so many issues.
it's pretty cool, but i prefer this in FHSW since the tank ballistics are more realistic.
All modern tanks look too similar, all western tanks have the same rough shape, and all the eastern tanks have the same rough shape. No variety anymore man.
Looks as though the rest of the crew are bailing out. He seems to want to stay and fight.
Yep, rise of flight.
I don't think the more agile and smaller factor really applies these days, they had no problems killing the t-72s because they were agile and smaller in 1991 and T-72s are roughly the same size as T-90s.
I have no comment on your atgm theory though, maybe you're right.
Ultimately, the T-90 is an upgrade of the T-72. The t-80 is an entirely new tank however.
And his logic does work, because when you upgrade something, you change it, when you change it, it usually looks different.
edit: Actually technically the T-80 is an upgrade of the T-64
I don't really have any opposition to it since it's original content.
Heh, bicycles. Fantastic work recreating these images!
Good to see my favorite C&C mod concept is still alive!
don't forget the t-80 and t-90 are not invincible either.
That is true, but to say the soviet union built and used monstrous tanks on the battlefield is completely incorrect.
is that an Arado Ar 234 with finnish insignias?
More like 50 tonne :D
I AM HEAVY WEAPONS MUTANT...
Alternatively, Landkreuzer :P
When there's an antlion guard nearby everyone stops shooting eachother and teams up for a second.
Well, you've lost my track. Though you may regain it depending on a number of things.
There's too many good source mods that are dead or abandoned and it's unfortunate to see another leave the engine.
Axis didn't exist in ww1.
Also, why must you developers be so cruel?
it would probably be wise to get rid of some of those toolbars.
Also, moddb has a silly reply system and creates alot of these.
There's a higher res version of it somewhere.
Alright, what i'm trying to say is historically they would have gone with something cheaper that they could easily mass produce, but since this is the C&C series i guess not. I never said the soviet union should have their MCV made faster and cheaper, just that historically they would have...
Or atleast that's what my intentions were. And grim reaper, find me some proof of that.
Compare the T-90 to the M1A1, there's a significant difference in size and production cost. Back in the 1940s and 1950s they experimented with a variety of heavy tanks, but ultimately it just came to nothing.
And since this was based on something closer to the 1980s soviet union, there's no way they would have extremely heavy vehicles in active service any longer
I think you sir, need to do some research by making such a ridiculous statement. The soviet union is just made out in the media like that. I'm 90% you've based the soviet union on what you've seen in C&C.
So you people know absolutely nothing about real history.
eh, i like both.
Actually no, Ausf. G would indicate 1944 or 1945, silly me. So technology of the war progresses as the game does.
Brummbar? The ostheer are now the best faction in CoH.
Though i'm pretty sure it's going to be balanced, you seem to be basing the ostheer off 1943 Eastern front Germany and the Soviets off the 1945 Soviets. But i guess that's just when both armies were at their peak.
Also, that panzer III 'stubby' upgrade makes it worse against armour i hope. :P
Yep, none of these concepts are by him.
Fast and cheaper seems like it would fit the soviet union more, but whatever floats your boat.
They get a nuke that can wipe out bases... I think you've got balance enough in that.
It's just abit strange is all, since to my knowledge that's the only time the Germans have just skipped to the next series of tanks. I'm sure it's an extremely common thing with aircraft, just not something you see so often with armoured vehicles.
This was only a concept, that's why it's not that well known. That said, there was no panzer 7, as griffinz said, the Tiger II was part of the Panzer 6 series. I'm not sure why they proceeded to call the maus panzer 8 though.
Unfortunately there's very little details in english on this and the type 3.
Venus... man tank.
I'm not even sure what to make of this...
Venus fly tank?
Now we're talking
It's funny how some illustrated little girls can ruin a good picture.
The S-tank was certainly a strange vehicle
Not always that easy to find stuff though.
damn you're good
Most likely hit by a bomb and later salavaged for parts or metal.
I know exactly what this is, but i'll give someone else a chance.
M1 Abrams Block III CATTB prototype. Some 90s project that had the intention of replacing the abrams or something.
Oh, and those second images are probably that tank in the previous picture posted.
The turret looks too big, and didn't they cancel the t-95?
it won't be so green at the end of the match! :D
Run! It's an alien hair-dryer tank!
They're t-55s, look at the barrel.
ehh... it's abit sketchy, the only known photo is an obvious photoshop.
Or maybe the concept did exist. Either way it looked damn cool.
Old, proved to have never existed. (The concept i mean)
And the maus was to have a dual Flak 37 variant. In which both guns were placed in the turret next to eachother.
Dual barrelled tanks are possible, but you need to take the recoil, loading, room inside the tank, amount of ammunition you can store, etc. into consideration.
It is object 268, but he's right. It's based on a t-10 chassis.
That guy from facepunch is working on this.
It was saved from that scrapyard, infact if i'm correct this isn't a scrap yard at all. This was restoredand is now on display at that American tank museum in the marylands.
The sherman gets double points for burning crews and spam!
It's true, 60% of the technology in the cold war originated with the Germans.
Thanks. I'm fairly sure these illustrations are from a book originally though.
no, this page seems pretty reliable. But just some of the stuff on the stuff is abit pro-nazi and i believe a few things are opinion based.
Armed with Nuclear weapons i mean.
Wouldn't France and Britain be supposedly armed too? Also this certainly explains it abit more.
3 or 4 for sure.
ah yes, that greyfalcon site has some interesting information. How reliable alot of it is however is questionable.
Then it met Mr.eighty-eight D:
More like AA tank.
Stop rating my comments down an just accept what i said.
oohhhh yesss. It's about time someone modelled this for CoH.
I don't believe you understand, He PORTED the model from men of war.
i don't think the main gun on the real one was deactivated and they only did it in CoH for balance.
Death in the shape of an- .... IS-3 battalion
the only ones i can recognise are the panzer I, the neubaufahrzeug, the half-track and the... t-28? might be a t-35.
Oh i see what you mean, sorry i was tired at the time. Yeah that makes sense.
How many times has the image been reposted? seriously
as for rommel, if he wasn't killed, what did happen to him?
Nazism can't change, but the things they do can. Perhaps someone could've prevented the holocaust or stopped the invasions of various countries. I understand nazism can never coincide with communism and (maybe?) capatalism, but that was never my original point.
Rommel's suicide being staged..... I don't even know what to say to that.
Very interesting update, i await to see what else you have in store.
Also note worthy that he was killed because of the plot against hitler and he chose to commit suicide to protect his family.
The man wasn't like other generals, had he seized power i believe regardless of whether the third reich won or lost the war, it would have been a different story.
Edit: We certainly tend to go offtopic alot, lol.
Punkbuster = Shittest anticheating software to ever have existed.
My point was, Rommel didn't like hitler. He didn't like the SS, He refused to let his troops commit warcrimes and very often disagreed with other commanders. The man wanted to end the war with the allies until his plane was shot up by a british fighter. Who knows how things would've gone had he been in charge. Don't know what he thought of the situation in the east though.
I'd say Rommel's an exception though ;D
heh, sturmtiger mortar infront of it
Any post-1950s rocket launcher could really. That's why armour thickness stopped mattering so much on modern tanks and people started researching other ways to counter them.
I still think it could give a t-62 or an M60 a nasty fight though.
Actually nevermind. Apparently they were here and there, but just not very common.
Ausf. N? I think they were the only ones that saw combat on the western front in 1944 if at all.
the e-100 was probably somewhat better than the maus.
K1A1. South Korean tank created with the assistance of the Americans. iirc
It looks overloaded
By hatred he means showing a tonne of destroyed German tank images right after images of pristine soviet tanks were posted. :|
By doing this it's like saying. "Yeah, look at our tanks. Now look at these ****** german ones LolOLOlOLl"
Yep, because all german tanks on the eastern front were nothing but wrecks. :\
Most of these look like the work of aircraft.
I can see it now
"Hey look a- OH GOD MY EYES!"
osprey. Sherman vs. panther iirc
what is that? A t-35? Difficult to tell.
Actually no, doesn't look like a t-35. Maybe one of those really early kv prototypes?
not an is-2, look at the suspension. Either a t-34 of somekind or an su-85/100/122
ah, it's alright mate. It's just i got up one morning and one of the pictures was missing. Was just abit confused.
I thought that would've been the is-7 or obkiekt 279 :D
Looks as though you've got moss growing on it :S
Goddamn it facepunch
eh? why was the tiger image deleted?
Nah, a missile smaller than a car.
Holy ****, Nice!
Ha, i was about to post this. Got it from militaryphotos.net right?
Sweet zombie jesus.
How does this perform in combat? Extremely sluggishly i assume
Looks as though he's gonna hunt me down and beat me up.
That's what they said about ww2... but this is completely unrelated so we won't go into that :P
Anyway, good work as usual!
I think he said he was gonna do a kv-1 after he's finished the other one.
Looks like the leopard 2 somewhat :\
And i think you mean the t-90, griffinz. :P
*Forget the reports bit. There was some information i recall coming across about an m1 being destroyed during the gulf war.
As for the previous image: it's 2 guys riding past a tank on a bike, there's is no evidence at all to suggest this was done by these men.
Can't agree there, i mean it did destroy and entire army of t-72s though cheap export models with badly trained crews, it's still a pretty impressive feat. And images are not good proof as they can be easily edited and it's hard to tell if they're real or not. I am yet to come across any official reports that have stated they have been knocked out though that's not to say they haven't been. I admit, yes a few of these have been knocked out due to close range RPGs and such, but compare that to the sheer number of t-72s and (some) t-80s reported to have been knocked out. No, this is not a bad tank. Yes, it could be severely improved on.
As for age, i don't think that matters. The leopard 2 was completed in the late 70s and that's one of the finest tanks in the world.
Basically don't state something without evidence to back yourself up.
The idea of vodka dealers made me lol. But yeah, it's certainly got an odd story, hitler died early war or something and operation sealion went ahead.
ah yes, bf vietnam, i loved that game.
The tail was to make it easier to cross trenches
Based on the Walter Christie design yeah?
Better view, the other one makes it look like it has a giant sphere on it.
if you think this is bad you should see the concept for the Mendelejews tank
It was a goddamn metal box with tracks and a gun. More so than the A7V.
Yeah i know, but everyone already knows about the combat the is-2 saw :P
Since i'm a lazy bastard i'm just gonna copy and paste what i said before. And this is about this IS-3 btw
"If i'm correct it only ever saw combat once, during the six day war. Apparently they tore up the m48a2s and not even the Israeli bazookas could take it out. But the 105mm gun on the m48a3 could and did. But considering it was rather outdated by this time, the fighting it did see was pretty impressive. "
Yeah i'd like to see a bigger version of this.
Yeah that's one scary *** flare gun.
Looks good so far!
I've always liked the design of ww1 tanks
No doubt one of my favorite tanks ever built.
IMAGE NOT FOUND
This sure is a cool tank
nah, it's a 55 or 62
of all of them i hate this one the least.
ohgod that guy
yeah i meant ERA bricks
there were only 120 vaults...
Although this does look intersting. Either way my fallout days are over, dunno why i came to this page.
Tank crews survive ied blasts all the time so it wouldn't suprise me. They wouldn't burn to death because the track was on fire. :P
That's alot of t-62s O_O
jesus, they have flying shermans now?
Not really, that was just a massive target for german AT guns. Though it would be interesting to see.
oh yes. i've awaited this for a long time.
kingtiger rapes hellcat
Gotta love the 128mm
Finally, someone made a production model model
lol just noticed that
Wasn't that the model they exported to the iraqi's?
ya, can't wait :D
They're both unproven in combat. The abrams went up against outdated models of t-72 and t-55 with badly trained crews and ****** ammo. And the t-90? well that just hasn't seen combat as far as i know.
Actually nobody ever found out what it was truly for but the most likely guess was that it was for placing/removing demolition charges if i remember correctly.
And this copied General Dynamics Land Systems
No, i meant the model, just look at the main gun and the side machineguns. Plus there's a few things they hadn't added to it yet
nice work mate
Will the m72 law work the same way as the panzerfaust?
t-34? That's an is-2
Maus, you fat bastard
They hunger? stop being so biased
And he said HALF LIFE not HL2
This is how it SHOULD be, but unfortunately i don't think we'll ever see such a future.
Actually their aim is to completely recreate the original half life storyline, as well as all the maps.
Though i'm not saying not to continue this. I'm just saying you have some competition and they have a head start on you.
oh, nevermind, i just read the description for the light defense
I was just thinking, maybe you should base one of those defenses off the one you see at the dam in HL1
Model could still use some work though
oh yes. Sturmtiger FTW
I "think" you need fh2
indeed, this thing was monster
ah, fair enough
weren't the germans using the balkan cross or whatever it is in the really late stages of the war?
Love this :D
Adding those screenshots and things
Thanks for that
Yeah, my mistake i said that when i was tired.
Kubinka Tank museum
How far is that museum from moscow? i'd like to go there some day
Pity it's just a model though. Eh i guess we have bf1918 if we want to drive it.
*shudder* Ignore that comment. My grammar is much better now. Tell me if you want me to add anything to the gman invasion profile, or post news if you feel as though it needs an update in some way. I just updated the link to the planetphillip page since the other one was down.
Gasmask is a nice touch
Too smooth imo
Nice particles right there
Jesus, it looks bigger than the topel M
Yeah, looks pretty real to me
Never saw combat unfortunately
More or less a last resort weapon for the germans
One of the finest machines ever created
Kharkov...? No idea why they didn't just call it the t-35, because that's what it is.
This is uhh... intersting
It should work for both OF and TOV you just need to have the latest patch
you forgot the A in the bottom right one
That's russians for ya
the elefant looks awesome
They were on the original female assassin models. Did anyone even pay attention to the old model?
It wasn't in ww2.
Once again, great work :D
am i want it? lolololol
Thanks for this
I can see the page, but there's nothing on it yet D:
So... uhhh... How does it fire its missiles?
Whoa, nice models :D
Bloody hell, Awesome mod.
Who are you anyway?
Ah, ok then
the RPG-7 wasn't invented until 1961 :\
Removing nuclear weapons was the worst thing they did to RA :P
Will this include tanks? :o
The flamethrower looks great :D
Some interesting units like the Karl :D
Put the sturmtiger in :D
looks the same
Come it cant die
yay first beta
wooo another coop
*sigh* just download it
booooooo!! i liked the old concept . this new concept isnt original. it just stupid.
i didnt even get to see it :(
do you need a beta tester?
i can bea tester for dodgeball
is exterminate dead?
strong bad mod is dead just to tell you
i added you cause im bored and you probly needed to join a mod
