Make sure to put on your muzzle cap before cleaning so as to not damage the rifling at the muzzle, thus throwing off accuracy.

p.s. always tie a bright colored ribbon around your muzzle cap so you don't forget to take it off.

thanks I forgot that part,

What you should do is the last time you go to work the bolt hold the trigger as you put the bolt in possition.. this will make it so it isnt cocked and ready to fire.

Lose your guns? Better buy as many as you can while you are allowed to. They can't take them away from you. By the way the Elefant sucks compared to the JadgTiger! I will just go up to your Elefant with some satchel charges and blow it to hell.

JagdTiger was the most useless hunk of crap ever made!

See this pic? For the next 3 years the road had to go around this "mobile bunker" because nobody could move it. It stayed there until 1948! jagdtiger_color.jpg

Every time you drive the thing more than a kilometer the gun lost it's zero placement and had to be recalibrated. It used more fuel per km than the average submarine of the time, broke down after 4 km's and for the entire 5 months that it was in operation if got something like 10 kills out of the whole production run.

On the other hand 90 Elefants (ferdi's at the time) went to Kursk and the 40 that actually engaged the enemy managed to take out 350 enemy AFV's.

That's 0.9 kills per Jagdtiger in 5 months, as opposed to 4 per Ferdinand in less than a week.

Plus the remainder continued to serve in the eastern front, the mountains of Italy, one or two possibly made it to the western front, and a couple actually defended Berlin in April-May 1945.

Elefants were weak against infantry, that is true...but the Jagdtiger was just a waste...

I never heard of that story before...damn...I would have wanted to get that wreck so bad...anyway, I think that the Jagdtiger could never reach up to its full potential due to its big size and the fact that the allied bombing raids limited the quality of production. I am sure that had it come earlier it might have been improved...

Damn... It thought the JadgTiger was a good vehicle from what I had read about it. Then again I never found any combat records for the beast. Well King Tiger still beats Elefant and I will still do my Russian thing.
