  1. No offence, but the "little green men" - as they are called sometimes - are carrying RPG-26 disposable launchers, around since the mid 80s. No doubt they're Russians though. https://twitter.com/cjchivers/status/461540171302076416/photo/1 The camo they are wearing is a special one called Spectre (you can buy it downtown Moscow) http://sso-mil.ru/catalog/84/22438?sphrase_id=42836
  2. well its not a bug, its a feature... the FO team might have been surpressed
  3. I had a chance to ride in an M3 a few years ago, and to be honest I used the rear door, as jumping from the side really looked dangerous as it was to high.
  4. I see it similar to the soft launch capability of the Javelin. You don't want to stand behind it either when it's fired, and also it still creates some overpressure. Taking into account the large weight of the missile itself, the ammount of the propellant might be larger than in the case of the Panzerfaust 30. Couldn't find any data on that, but someone with backround in physics could enlighten us.
  5. Are you inconsistent with it? Yes. As far as CMx1 is concerned. Should be there an option for the player to allow or disallow this in the game? Maybe.
  6. No they weren't issued, according to this article. http://www.ehow.com/about_6457104_history-development-hearing-protection-devices.html
  7. Well one tested might be familiar to you: the 90mm recoiless. It is comparable, same system, same method as the bazooka in the game. The others are producing much larger backblast, even if a TOW can be fired from within a building, please stop telling me a Panzerfaust can't be. I will enjoy the game with or without this feature. I just want to see this game as close to real life as it can.
  8. Sadly happens on a battlefield too often, imagine a round explouding next to you, now thats some noise even if you are unhurt!
  9. The mentioned modern weapons have larger backblast in most cases. There are some modern, mostly German made, anti-armor weapons that produce much lower backblast, however these were not tested, but the super bazooka (90mm) was!
  10. http://oai.dtic.mil/oai/oai?verb=getRecord&metadataPrefix=html&identifier=ADA244127 that was the source. They used cats and goats, during the tests the only problem was some ear drum rupture in case no hearing protection was used. (Imagine a cat with earplugs lol)
  11. I have given a few examples with citations on the use of Panzerfaust from within a building. On the other hand there is one citation that it cannot be used from a building. Who needs to prove what?
  12. A couple of years ago I've been to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, which is a great place to visit, lots of planes and tanks. There are a few dioramas as well, one of them includes a T-34/85 an 88, and guess what, a building with a German guy with a Panzerfaust in his hands. http://www.warmuseums.nl/gal/023gal.htm And yes, there is no roof on the building, so it doesn't prove that the thing can be fired from a room. I just found it interesting. There was also a text describing, that the Germans used to take out the tanks from above, as the armor was weaker on the top.
  13. I have played once, only because the local airsofters rented an M3 halftrack for the game. I was riding in it for the most of the game...it was fun...
  14. Does anyone have this book? Panzerfaust: And Other German Infantry Anti-Tank Weapons (Schiffer Military Aviation History) http://www.amazon.com/gp/search?index=books&linkCode=qs&keywords=0887406726 It might have the answers for a few questions.
