  1. I might be wrong, but isnt the Sherman V the British equivalent of the Jumbo? I seem to remember it having aa ungodly amount of armour up and above the rest of the Shermans. maybe this explains the occasional 88mm ricochet?

  3. Don't feel too bad, I lost a Jagdpanzer IV to a M3 halftrack. Apparently they're vulnerable to 50cal from the rear.
  4. ASL Vet, the squares are 20 meters, not feet.
  5. KwazyDog, the contest site says your considering multiple paint schemes for most vehicles, will this include a set of '42 bitmaps, when panzer grey was still the standard?
  6. I just thought it was interesting to hear the intervies with the two tank commanders who faced Whitman at Villars-Bocage.

I take it the T-55 is relatively easy to get nowadays?<hr></blockquote> The BoB Tiger I thought was the same one from SPR, in that case it was a modified T34.
  8. <blockquote>quote:</font><hr>Originally posted by Michael Dorosh: Yeah, the lack of a roof makes it a great option for those rainy days... <hr></blockquote> Look at the other photos. it has a roof. All the ex-Croatian M36s I've seen have the factory installed roof.
  9. Where did the link to the CMMOS 3 mega update go? I don't seem to be able to see it anywhere on the CMHQ site.
  10. <blockquote>quote:</font><hr>Originally posted by redwolf hates artillery: In addition to the good advise: - I noted that the Bofors is very easy to spot, even when not firing. I'm not sure why that is. The German AA guns seem especially hard to spot when firing, I guess that spotting probability is connected to the calibre and maybe muzzle flashes/dust <hr></blockquote> The German AA guns I've seen are not much bigger than a 50cal mg once they're in position. The US Bofors though, are huge by comparison, high profiles.
  11. Just a guess, but the "poorly modelled" 50cal is actually a nice looking M60.
  12. You might need the explain to your friend the difference between a 105mm antitank gun and a 105mm howitzer, that might be his reason for confusion. He could be thinking of Isreali M50 Shermans with the 105mm high velocity guns.
  13. These will die at the sound of 50cal fire, I lost several in a quick battle to 600m 50cal fire.
