KakoruHmmm.. I wonder what would happen if the U.S used Tigers in the pacific :rolleyes:

Geez... :rolleyes:

The US would have abandoned the Tigers since they had no spare parts or German ammo handy to restock the main guns and MG's. :smack:

i still say no point on putting DD Sherman tanks if there gonna be used on the d-day maps because only the british and canadian DD Tanks managed to ashore easier the stupid armericans launched theres to far out also no point of add DD tanks in the game because all the guns would be aimed at it and it would be blown out of the water by shore defences. but its still a good idea i was just thinking of the ups and downs because dd tanks will be used on beach maps and its kinda stupid to use a dd tank to cross rivers or lakes because there might be a bridge near by? i think they should model a big cargo ship that can hold 6 or 8 vehicles inside it that would be cool :naughty:

No way man, they had captured a ton of tigers and ammo, and could have made more. In fact if they wanted for later war after VE day they could have even just had the german keep making afv's and ammunition and send them over to the pacific. The real real reason they would not (even if they had been willing) is because the tiger sucked at assaults, and was only particullary usefull as a defensive tank. Its poor reliablity and compartively heavy weight would have been more of a liabilty then a asset in a beach assult and jungle warfare.

Good thing the Germans didnt try to BLOW all the bridges crossing the Rhine and the Brits didnt have to do a amhibious crossing in 1945, then there would be no reason to model Buffalo's, DD Shermans, and motorized barges.

Id rather see 2 or 3 LCM's than 1 LST carrying 8 vehicles.

Well it depends one part of the landing were talking baout really. I mean if they did a charlie sector later in the day they could make it more like gold beach, with tanks and other things landing etc.

What if the DD was modeled with the skirts in the lowered position then it would look like they've just got out of the water.

maybe make a object around the DD tank, which itself floats and that object carries the DD tank, pressing say, a trigger in the gunners position or somthing well destroy it, but with a animation of say the skirt going down?

the british and canadian beaches weren't hilly so how can you make Omaha Charlie Sector into Sword or gold beach because there is already a Map called gold beach so it would be just a waste of time. i want the british to have there funny tanks called hobarts funnies because they would be really useful like a mine clearing tank could clear anti tank mines or a bulldozer tank to move knocked out vehicles off the road now that would be cool charging at a panzer with a bulldozer or squashing infantry with it talk about OverKill! lol
