More Tanks!

Today I introduce two new variants of some old favorites to the 'Front.

First up, the M4A1 Sherman...

The M4A1 Sherman was distinctive from the other Sherman models by being the only one with a cast hull, giving it those beautiful curves we've all grown to know and love.

Introduced in February of 1942, it was a welcome replacement to the M3 Grant in North Africa, due to it's rotating turret and it's upgraded armor profile, although it continued to mount the same 75mm gun.

In 1944, in preparation for Operation Cobra the M4A1 became the first Sherman model to be equipped with the 76mm gun, which gave birth to the M4A1(76)W.

The 76mm gun helped equalize the M4A1 in terms of firepower with it's German counter-parts, namely the Panzer IV and the StuG III.

After the German invasion of Russia, the shock of encountering the T-34 and KV-1 meant that a much more powerful tank gun was needed.

The initial response was to add the 75mm KwK 40 L/43 to the Panzer IV, which resulted in a stop-gap conversion tank, the Panzer IV Ausf. F2 (the tanks retaining the 75mm KwK 37 L/24 were called Ausf. F1).

Three months after the conversions began, The Ausf. F2 was renamed the Ausf. G. Besides receiving the bigger gun, the most noticeable change was the increase in frontal armor to 80mm and the introduction of skirting on the hull and turret.

Both of these tanks will be available in patch 2.3 , so be sure to watch for the release, and give 'em a spin around the battlefield!



These tanks look amazing!

Also, I hope that you will also make some HD textures (maybe the battlefield 1942 Remaster creator will allow you to use his textures) since these tanks looks way better than most of the other things in the mod which are mostly Vanilla.
