Panzers are my business. Someday i'll be driving down the street in a Panther tank. You just wait and see!
Nothing more manly and soldiery than marching to battle with a feather on your helmet/hat! (Partly joking)
Did you fix the missing tread on the Flammpanzer 38(t)?
PANZER DEINE WAFFE!
They were delivered, but yes, the Ram got replaced by the Sherman as soon as they got to the front.
Reward unit, maybe?
The chasis looks amazing!
All you need is an M4 Sherman turret and you've got yourself a Canadian Ram Tank! ;)
It's actually a MADCat from the MechWarrior game...
In due time, will you guys be able to implement more Hungarian units, some Finnish and Romanian/Croatian troops/vehicles? This mod is purely stunning, so the addition of more nations would top off the cake! ;)
A Sherman tank, yes?
Go play Back to Basics -___-
Mod players would rather wait an eternity to play something that is going to be awesome (Which I am hoping your mod will become)than play a mod that is still far from being finished. Don't get me wrong, I think your mod is great and I have played it before (when the Vichy French were still around)and it seemed decent, but still fell short of satisfying because it felt (and is) unfinished.
Maybe that and the fact that all "Italian" units are just german units with different names. I got excited when I called in the Semovente 75/18, then began laughing and closed the game when it was just a StuG with a different camo pattern and name.
It's the lack of anything "new" that made me uninstall the mod.
Every once in a while, my mighty Jagdtiger or Kingtiger will hit a sherman (sometimes halftracks) and the allied hunk of scrap still clings to life, needing a second shot to knock it out. So, your hypothesis of Fireflies always 1-shooting a Sherman (or anything else) is invalid.
I'm ending this conversation, Herr BalanceNazi.
I must agree on you there partly. I'm an avid user of supporting infantry for my tanks, but I only use supporting infantry if my tanks are getting swarmed enemy infantry. And, - according to TheSoldier - if Vanilla CoH AA-MGs are soooo good, that explains why 2 or 3 airborne squads with the M18 can bring even a panther to it's knees -__-. For me, the golden rule for using AT-Infantry in BlitzkriegMod when up against tanks is: If your first salvo of hits do minimal damage or bounce off, retreat and get outta there, because the AA-MGs will shred your inf to pieces before they get a chance to reload and fire again. This is mainly why infantry support (that lacks AT capabilities) for tanks when fighting tanks is a laughing matter.
But since it lacks any anti-infantry weapons, the Firefly will get hunted down by Panzerschrecks. The Marder at least can fire HE for a few seconds.
And I said "The firefly cant go camo" as a notable disadvantage (I was implying that the Marder I is better). And with the veterancy system, a max vet Marder I will slice through a 75mm and maybe even a 76er with 1 shot.
Bro, I said "Marder I", not III.
And I indeed have scored 1 hits on even 76(W) shermans before. And the Firefly cant go camo. You're reallllly not making sense right now.
But 76mm/17pdr sherman are still inferior to the Marder I, because the Marder can camo, go rapid-fire, and has the same armor more or less as a 75mm sherman.
Sorry, my eyes must be taunting me. Did you just say that AA-Mgs DONT DO ANYTHING AT ALL? Pfffffft, you, Soldier, have made me laugh greatly. Here's an excellent test to prove your hypothesis of "uesless" (lol) AA-mgs is wrong: Use the Henschel and Porsche King Tigers against infantry, and see which one racks more kills. -__-
Judging by the pictures so far, one disadvantage the Beutepanzer has is the lack of an AA-mg (though there are photos of German soldiers with Beutes that have AA-mgs), so it's easily countered by AT spam. Second, they probably wont be able to get sandbag armor, Sherman vs Sherman, allies win. And lastly, you dont know what you're going to get: I sure as heck would feel like a turtle if I got a VC Firefly when I was facing an allied infantry and emplacement spammer. Same thing if I get a 75mm against Armored Company.
Bro, it's called using tactics.
Use a Chaffee or a Stag to stun your freakin' prey, then follow up with a few shermans with armor piercing (or just flank the Tiger or Panther) and your problem is solved. I sometimes feel invincible when I have Panthers and Tigers, but i've come to be cautious and wary of any enemy tank I encounter. You (and everyone) should be the same.
YESSS, 38(t)s will tear and crush anything to bits with their 37mm guns and tracks of DOOOOOOM!
Also, looking foward to using the Foreign Support units!:D
Excellent job blackbishop!
Since in the description it says "Replaces the Geschutzwagen call-in ability for SE" I hope it can be called in several times like the 39(H), otherwise it'd be horrible for the players who could've had more than one 39(h) :/
Right on, Xalibur!
I can now die a happy man ^^
Oooooh, i'm loving the M1918 camo pattern on their helmets!
Yeah, I figured because it looks almost as ridiculous as the Donkey, lol.
I really miss the lend-lease M4 Sherman, but with all the extras you guys are adding, whew! Can't wait, fellas!
And what about Finnish Panssari (tanks)? :P
It should replace the Panzer Elite donkey, lol.
So, guys......have you thought of adding some Finnish soldiers down the road? ^^
