These tanks seem to be way too powerful, especially vs. the T-34. I fired at it several times in a T-34, and it didn't even start smoking, and it hit me once and I exploded. Another time, I was in a T-34/85, and again, a Panzer IV scored one hit to my frontal armor and the whole tank exploded instantly. Wasn't the Panzer considered to be greatly inferior to the T-34? Also, in a separate situation, I fired several (at least 5) bazooka shots (I was near an ammo crate) at a Panzer, all of them registering as hits, but it didn't even start smoking. Is it supposed to be this powerful or is it a bug?

Try to shot at the PanzerIV/PzkpfwIVH side/rear turret: it will be a nice KABOOM, expecially with T34-85........it was its real weak point. Try to shot everywhere on tank before say that is invincible. It's a question of aiming and discipline.

Do like me, hit the back of the tank and it will blow in 1 hit, may be just not on the tiger but on almost every tank it will blow in 1 hit.

But the Panzer doesn't have to aim; it kills everything in one hit, and it shouldn't. If it hits a T-34 anywhere, it's dead (even in the front, where its armor should be significantly stronger than anywhere on the Panzer IV), whereas the Panzer itself is only vulnerable in certain locations. The Panzer wasn't all that great a tank in reality and it shouldn't be that great in the game.

Your sure? maybe the other tank pilot aimed correctly.

The Panzer IV is most certainly skewed. The T-34/85 should be able to penetrate the front hull of a Panzer IVH at ranges out to 1000m. A side or rear hit should be a virtual instant kill. The T-34/76 should penetrate the front hull of the PanzerIVD-F models as well.

That said, the excellent 75mm L/48 on the Panzer IVH would have an excellent chance of defeating the front hull armour on the T-34/85/76 at any range and would have an easy kill on the sides or rear at virtually any range.

The PanzerIVHs body armour got spoiled... go for a hit on the turret, that one has correct armour strength.
