Hey Halftrack,

as I mentioned the looks of the Ardennes and Nordwind OP, I counted numerous merely and straight on accurates that you might find well enough to earn a spot in botb at some point.

Right now I can count the following Kingtiger Turret No. in the Mod.
213 - Ostuf. Dollinger; (Black)

222 Oscha. Sowa; (Yellow)

009/204 are almost identical. 312 is the only of them all that received native white camo on 90% of it's hull only part of the turret was left blank in darker tan like 112 to.

I know it is a marginal effect but it'd be great to have one of the coloured set at some point :D

008, 204, 312 and 224 would be my choices out of them all to feature all variants of camo and turret colours. Maybe by that time it has a role in scenarios.

On the Nordwind Ambush Panthers, speaking of their pattern not their cloaking ability, they issued them differently in early 1945 up to the point of when the Ruhrkessel was closed.

Honestly, I cant add more KT skins. As long as the models dont allow it (which it doesnt)  its not possible to have more varieties.

And about the Panthers "Nordwind camo": I dont post images for everything. ;)

Which means current model only hold up to 2 different skinsets as with the given code of the variants, or the model is wrong compared to the accompanied portrayed ?
Panther's looking sexy as ever )8V8(

model supports only one skin. unit supports only one model. I have 3 different tiger II units:
Tiger 213 of KG Peiper/sPz Abt 501
Tiger 105 of sPz Abt 506
buildable Tiger ( 222 ) in Tankfactory, which is always the same one.
Adding for that  more variants will mean a lot of work & time, which I dont have much of.
Need to spend it on more important things.

Yeah do as you please, was just making that statement to get things organized, if anyone feels like it they might do it or something else instead no biggie. Your input on any front is warm welcomed anyway it was just meant to get in mood again for next patch(es) :)
Would anyway play it in 5 years so that wouldn't bother me probably :)

By that time I'm not sure if coh2 is on your list to check out, I've missed the beta so I'm mixed about what version to get when and if it'll give the same fun just on the other borders :D 312 Was brought over to the eastern front and was taken out whith broken gun and nude camo, maybe It'll appear in campaign ^^

Best wishes

not that I didnt think of making a few new KT skins already, but that wont be in the next version.
Oh, well. Changed my mind. Here we go: Two different production KTs.
