I think the Duplex Drive (DD) Sherman (amphibious tank) should be added into FH and especialy into the Omaha Beach map! Many DD Sherman's took part in the D-Day invasion although many did not make it accross the English Channel due to choppy seas, but some did and took the Germans by surprise because there attempts to develop a similar concept had failed. 03866.jpgCountry of Origin: USA Crew: 5 Weight: 32,284kg (71,025lb) Dimensions: length 6.35m (20ft 10in); width 2.81m (9ft 3in); height 3.96m (13ft) Range: 240km (149miles) Armour: 12-51mm (0.47-2in) Armament: one 75mm gun; two 0.3in machine guns Powerplant: one Ford GAA V-8 petrol engine developing 400 or 500hp (335.6 or 373kW) Performamce: maximum water speed four knots; fording amphibious; vertical obstacle 0.61m (2ft 0in); trench 2.26m (7ft 5in) Don't know just a thought could have already been done, I dont pay much attention! What do you think?

I know we have but nothing has happened since then so I thought I would bring it up agian! I just think it would be really nice to have in Omaha and other levels!

I think you should start paying more attention. The DD Sherman isn't exactly on the top of their priorities list. Honestly, I don't know why I'm getting into this argument.

I’m not arguing with you. I just saying it would be nice. Give the allies a better chance on Omaha and other levels like it.

u know where the allies run up the bank, on the far east side? guarded by that one pillbox with 2 mgs and the 2 mg34s in sandbag bunkers. that little thingy is a draw.

even if it got up the draw, how the hell would it move? there are craters soo deep that u get injured if you fall in. i see this working on gold tho, maybe a utah map. but not omaha,

Oh okay I see what you mean! I figured they would just be used for like fire-support on the beach, help the soldiers to the draw and then they would just be abandoned in the charge up. After the beach is secure I dont really think they are needed anyways, up on top just man to man, locked in bitter combat!
