Sublime Posted April 7, 2012 Share Posted April 7, 2012 In a recent battle vs the AI I noticed some odd behavior with one of my Churchill tanks. Perhaps a bug, or maybe a tweak is needed... - POSSIBLE SMALL SPOILERS FOR SCOTTISH CORRIDOR BATTLE- Basically, in the Scottish Corridor campaign, its the attack on Grainville. You're given several Churchills, some with 75mms and a few with 57mms (presumably to defeat the Panthers you encounter) Most of my tanks were KO'd in short order, however I had one 57mm Churchill left. After careful maneuvering I got him in position and engaged one of the Panthers. The Churchill crew were regulars, no damage, no morale problems btw. So anyway they open fire, rounds ping off to no effect. Suddenly one of the rounds gets a left turret penetration. Right before this I was wondering wtf the crew was doing, as I noticed the AP shot counter going down, not the APDS (which they had about 7-10 rounds of IIRC) when I saw the turret penetration sure enough they had used an APDS. But then they kept firing AP again! They didnt use APDS again for another several rounds, and when they did they started using AP again to no effect. They literally pinged about 10-20 rounds off the panther, with 2 penetrations and one spalling, and those were results of APDS. I dont get why they wouldnt have used APDS the whole time, or at least in the beginning. Thoughts? 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
