CMRT Vehicle Pack?


Recommended Posts

please! I know it's been discussed a few times, even from the developer's side of things, the Wishlist. where does one stop etc??? BUT. I would love to see a few more additions.

CM Normandy ---- would be great to see the addition of things like, SDKFZ 7 (for towing of larger AT guns, 88?) Bumbar (it did serve in Normandy.be it late in the theatre) Stug IV (my favorite) lol... opel mulitz ???? 

even the british matador truck?

 

In a nut shell...If they are willing and are able. I'd be happy to pay for such additions. and more than a battle packs worth 😜

TBH I wouldn't buy a vehicle pack, but if it was paired with new scenarios or campaigns, then sure. Regarding late war stuff, I am not as enamored with late war German heavy projects as some others might be, but I think it would be cool to have more options for second rate kind of units. For one thing, reading about the battle for Vienna, the amount of French tanks, some of which are already in other engine 2 games, is quite surprising. Also I know that at least one E series project was actually used, I think an open topped tank destroyer? Forgot the actual designation.

I think in a fun 1946 what if scenario that would be cool. would be great to as I'm sure someone could mod the German army's last camouflage scheme for their uniforms.

I will hold Steve to his promise of some very late war goodies.

I may never get my E series, but he did have some real fun things in mind.

That was a quick switch from CMRT to CMBN 🤣.

Anyway

  • Sdkfz 7 - totally agree, but the rationale I think has been that moving large guns in the CM timeframe is less likely?
  • Brummbar -  if you need your fix, it's already in CMFI, not sure about other titles without checking.  I imagine it would not be that difficult to port over (by Charles of course).
  • Stug IV - again totally agree, although a re-skinned Stug III (mod or BFC) might be difficult to tell apart?  Also, we do have Jagdpanzer IVs so we're not far from a StugIV.
  • Opel (ahem) Maultier? - Yes cool indeed, I'd buy that for a dollar.
  • British trucks don't excite me as much, but then I am British (just like your good self).

As for Steve promising late war goodies, do we know what he might have had in mind?

  • I would have said for curiosity a Sturmtiger, but then I remembered we already have it somewhere (CMRT?). 
  • A Pershing perhaps, but not in RT of course. 
  • Not late war but Nashorn, or do we have that already?
  • If not a Maultier, one of the Sdkfz251 rocket artillery carriers?
  • Struggling with Russian suggestions now that we have the lovely SU100.  Not late war but KV1 and variants, KV2 etc.?  I know a lot of folks would be happy with this, but it would be best in an unlikely early East Front expansion, with early models.  I would definitely buy that for a lot of dollars.

I could go on but I'm supposed to be fighting in Normandy as the Americans and the Germans.  Not in the same battle though.

And who am I kidding, I would buy any further WW2 content.  Full stop.

Edit: I had a 'light-bulb moment' (or maybe a 'not light-bulb' moment).  The IR variant of the Panther.  Surely it would just need a bit of code stealing from a modern title?  That truly fits the late war brief as well.

😄 . A sdkfz just seems common sense, it's a piece of the terrain so to say..I can just picture one that's been ambushed with the 88 in tow. going back to towed weapons "packing" and "limbering" time's. I do think in all fairness these need to be worked on. there is plenty of footage of the smaller ones and even sometimes the medium ones being pushed around with a competent crew. I for one do like the missions where you have to set up a static defense with the detailed work of getting the trucks in the right place etc.

Brummbar's are a unique vehicle interesting to. I do have a book that details they were deployed to a unit in normandy, but like I mentioned before it may be out of the scope or theatre of the game, (HOWEVER!!!!----that was when it was just normandy, obviously the setting has moved to include market garden etc, so..??? come on!!!) lol

Stug IV - again totally agree, although a re-skinned Stug III (mod or BFC) might be difficult to tell apart? !!!! blasphemy!!! if folks can't tell the difference they should stick to solitaire! lmao my life! lol

Opel (ahem) Maultier? - Yes cool indeed, I'd buy that for a dollar. cheers! spelling escaped me! lol

British trucks don't excite me as much, but then I am British (just like your good self). !!!!!! blasphemy no2" ! ! I'm a yank, be I was raised and schooled in good old blighty! so, I don't destroy the English language so bad, lol (Derby = DARby lmao) father was USAF. 

I would have said for curiosity a Sturmtiger, but then I remembered we already have it somewhere (CMRT?). yes its in CMFB, altho it would be nice to have it on another theatre, again tho. there were only like 11 built. and I believe they were all in the west.  but maybe.. 

A Pershing perhaps, but not in RT of course. IF YOU ADD THE PERSHING! ITS ONLY FAIR TO ADD THE COMET!!!!!!! MY NO 1 RULE lol...awesome.

If not a Maultier, one of the Sdkfz251 rocket artillery carriers? cool idea....also like the idea of static weapons as flavor objects.

Okay, assumption is the mother of all FUs.  My bad, location does not mean origin.  Just lucky you're not from Derby (only kidding if anyone is from Derby, it's really not that bad).  The name should have given me a clue, I'm a Triumph guy myself.

Yes to everything you said.  Comet, yes.  Static weapons as flavour objects?  You mean destroyed?  I think some modded options are available for that?  Okay you might have to swap a dead cow (already modded, not sure) for a dead gun, but it might be what you want.

What about my IR Panther suggestion though?  The more I think about it, it could be great as it's a 'first of a kind', even if it only saw one or two actions in real life.

Will there be one?...................say ................YES

100% agree. I would like to have a vehicle pack for RT. There are a lot of vehicles and tanks that can be added to the game. By soviet side we could get  KV1-S, KV85 and maybe some earliest KV models still in service ( same with first T-34 versions survivors and deployed with second line units).
By german side I'm thinking on subversions such as  Jagdpanther G2, Jagdtiger Porsche, Tiger II Porsche (used at least one or two in Balaton offensive) More captured material (as Sherman) and very early german models reconverted . And please, ... A TRUE ... PzIVJ Late.

 I missed the panther IFR, thats cool. as I've heard stories that some were used and fielded. assumption is the mother of all FU''s, key bit of advice for my work being on the railway, don't assume anything lol. .another little neat thing i'd like is the RSO tractor!!!! Nearly forgot about him! and then you could even have the RSO -PAK40...ANNND! with this facility already being modelled in shock force, we could have goliaths for our pixeltruppen pioneers... that would be something. . really out there. 

 

don't feel bad about the assumption, I feel privileged to be schooled over here, gives a nice perspective that yanks, be it I luv em, they miss...lol and its not just the language lol

I'M also deadly serious about the jagdpather issue, just seems naked without them...curses!! lol

Nice to see others notice this, lol amongst lots of other nit bits with vehicles etc.

I've always wanted to see the KVs in action. There's all sorts of lend-lease vehicles that could be added too like Churchills and Stuarts and Matildas. A T-34 with a mine roller would be amazing too, I think ever CM game needs some sort of mine roller vehicle.

That didn't make it from my wish-list to the Ready for Prime Time list. The Reitwein map was made for the possibility.

Love it Ben, perhaps we can push for it to arrive somehow/sometime.  I fear me pushing will have little clout, but together we can move mountains.

MTW Kätzchen. Finally an APC that can follow the tanks without being shot to pieces.

Panther II.

Kugelblitz flakpanzer.

Roland Flakpanzer.
