Back to Basics is a total conversion mod, that not only adds units and abilities but also a new weapon damage and penetration system. This improves gameplay and requires more tactical assaults and defenses. Weapon ranges are also greatly increased and also includes a greatly improved AI. Back to Basics: Battle of the Hegdes adds realism to Company of Heroes, to make it even better. It is compatible with Company of Heroes, Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor, always with the latest patch. You do not have to own all 3 products of the Company of Heroes series to play Back to Basics.
In v3.0 the Tiger Ace is the former Tiger 812 'Tiki' in the Wehrmacht Blitzkrieg Doctrine. The vehicle simply got a new name and texture, to fit more with the other textures in Back to Basics. It was also quite strange that the Tiger 812 could be granted every battle, even if it was destroyed in another..
The Tiger Ace can use Flank Speed, Smoke Dischargers and Tank Shock, and will grant nearby friendly vehicles an offensive combat bonus.
