Normandy '44: European Theater combines a higher level of realism with a more elaborate doctrine system, which incorporates almost 50 different military units that took part in the period of Jun-Sept 1944. This spectrum ranges from divisions of free Polish and French units serving under the main allied armies to volunteers from the Eastern Front that served in the German Wehrmacht. This is only a small portion of the doctrine variety however, as we feature numerous well known units of all factions as well. The mod also features numerous new abilities and custom made units each with a completely revamped size and structure. Between custom made units and structures with historically correct skins, Normandy '44 offers over 150 NEW UNITS, making for an almost endless variety of different scenarios and unit actions. Combined these factors provide for an experience unlike any other mod for CoH!

yes its a 17 pounder. The PaK 43 has a very different layout and is surprisingly large. I am, however, glad to see the PaK 43 represented in game.

Yes, sorry for the mix up gentlemen. There will be a proper model in v2.0. The model just has to be replaced for the current one. Sorry for the mix up.

Why does it only have a two man crew?
That's not very realistic.

The current emplacement model and animation doesn't allow for more than two crewmen. It'll be fixed in the future if we can.

the Pak 43 is the equivalent of the 88mm KwK 43 model that can be found primarily on the Tiger II, the Jagdpanzer V Jagpanther, and the Ferdinand (I prefer to just call it the Elefant). As stated it has an effective range of 4km and a max of 16km. The Sherman Firefly had an effective range of about 2km for it was designed to be able to combat the long range tanks in the Wehrmacht such as the Panther and the Tiger I.

Description

The Pak 43 was the most powerful anti-tank gun of the Wehrmacht to see service in significant numbers. The Pak 43 was an excellent weapon, able to penetrate the heaviest Allied tanks at combat ranges, including the Soviet IS-2. An experienced crew could fire 20-25 rounds per minute at an effective range of up to 4,000 m, but could fire at a maximum range of 16,000 m.
