Hi, I am curious to why the FH team has left out the Panther D and soon to be G out of the Battle of the Bulge:confused: . Most German tanks were all fighting in the Battle of the Ardenes, so why did the singal out the Panther? The panther is my favourite tank, but historically speaking, the Panther should be there. I am just curious to know why they left it out. There are plenty of tanks to take out, such as the Brumbar... it is the most useless tank i have ever used. Anyways if the FH team could tell me why they left the Panther out i would appreciate it. Is it left out for balance issues? That is the only reason i could think of it being out. :uhoh: Or is it because you dont want to skin a white panther.:talker:
IIRC the new Panther has a winter skin so who knows.

brumbars not a tank, its some naval cannon strapped on some tracks more or less

I thought it was a 155mm howitzer, and the SturmTiger or somesuch had that 380mm mortar.
Or something like that. I may be wrong though.
your right about Sturmtiger, but i dont know bout Brummbar. Both are assualt mortars though.

150mm, it was used against dug in troops, fortifications, etc right now in game it needs to have a really BIG blast radius, like battleship size but with minimal AP power to it
and a better trajectoty me thinks

Battleship size? Are you joking? 150mm = 5.9 inches. Most battleship guns were 15", 16", 17" or 18". There is a huuuuuuuuuuuge difference in the blast radius and area damage between those calibers.
The Brummbar already has a big blast radius. It's a beast against infantry and soft targets, but not so good against armor.
It does need a better trajectory, though. It's really hard to correctly judge the elevation required to hit a target.

Nah, I think that's fine the way it is. Otherwise it'd just be used to camp bases from far off without having to worry about the projectile speed/arc at all. And since it'd more or less just one big-ass mortar, the shell trajectory is fine.
The one thing that DOES need to be changed is that horrid firing sound! It's so loud that it "static-es" up my speakers every time it fires!
The trajectory of the Brummbär is completely right. It's a very short gun with very low a muzzlevelocity. It's more like a mortar after all.
