I wonder why british call em Jerry all the time.. I mean that's more an american name.. I thought they were called krauts or Hans. And even that is a wrong statement. :D

I saw in a Docu lateley that the true Krauts are also Americans they eat that a lot more than germans do. :D But I guess that's normal since America is almost an entire continent. (The staates)

As for the tank great work. It looks really impressive.

All the models that have visible crew have the same size, like marder 3. It's because humans models are giants XD.

Coh soldiers are atleast 2m tall. So every vehicle with crew has to be scaled up to fit the crew in.

GriffinZ Apr 27 2011 replied:

lol, if the infantry is like 2 meters tall, the other possibility is that tanks are smaller

I always thought it was the other way around, becuase the vehicles in CoH is so much bigger then in other RTS games.

Don't know very clearly if infantry models are that big, but are bigger than normal. The problem is that trying to make "real" size models, we'll need to modify infantry models, let alone all the other models that use Marders parts.

The m18, the G-Wagen and similar models that use visible crew are oversized.

Here's a pic from Halftrack.

i believe it was the Normandy mod team that re-scaled all the infantry right? i love that mod even tho inf was made incredibly weak and other game elements a bit unbalanced i think it got the sizes\size of inf down pretty well.

The description says it'll replace teh Sherman 76mm that one of the doctrines gets. Since EF always used to be very insistent on not using any Lend-lease equipment for the Soviets, and the Sherman 76 is a bit OP for a early-game upgrade (even at 4CP), i hope it replaces it entirely.

Indeed, after the next update the sherman 76 won't be available on Eastern Front.

I dont get it. Again EF changes alot again. Introducing Sherman 76 than deleting it and replacing by SU 76, deleting SU-100, Introducing T34/76 tank riders, reworking alot of other stuff...

Will patch 1.4 be a balanced soviet faction after these changes?

I would rather wait for 1.4 patch, when i know that it will be a "complete" faction.

@GeneralCH
Since the sherman 76 was used, we said it was only a place holder, as now we have the intended model to be there, it's going to take it's place. Some day in the future the real soviet mortar will come as well and the old model will be discarded.

SU-100 wasn't needed at all, it was redundant. SU-85 can do the job without being upgraded to SU-100. Ofc, we are tweaking the former to reflect the absence of the latter.

I don't understand the last part, because Tank Riders have been in EF since 1.0.

About the tank riders:

it was the last patch that included two versions of tank riders. I think the t34/76 version is redundant, because you can skip the t34/85 upgrade and save those 150 mun if you choose armor doctrine.

@GeneralCH:
Both versions already existed before afaik. In the past after you upgrade to T-34/85 you would get Tank Riders with T-34/85 instead of T-34/76, iirc. Don't remember the patch where this changed but certainly this will be rolled back in 1.40.
