Overall I think 0.65 is a vast improvement over 0.61. But there are many things that it did not fix, and even things it made worse. - Tank armor. In general these were tweaked to a better direction. But for example the Sherman Jumbo is horribly off. Okay, it was a lot better armored than a regular Sherman, but not that much. Currently the front turret of Sherman Jumbo is practically invincible, and even the front hull takes an insane amount of punishment. For comparison the Sherman Jumbo deals more damage to Tiger's front turret than the Tiger does to Jumbo's front turret. That can't be right. - Airplane cannons. Major improvement over the horrific 0.61, and I thank for that (the new flight physics are awesome too). But the 30mm cannons are still peashooters. In Bombing the Reich a Hurricane took more than 4 hits from my Bf109G's 30mm cannon before even starting to smoke. - Mines. Why were they removed? Replacing exp packs with the satchel charges was great, but the lack of infantry-deployable mines seriously hampers infantry's ability to defend against tanks.

Tiger I ausf E gun manlet armor: 110mm Tiger I ausf E front turret: 100mm Tiger I ausf E front upper hull: 102mm

German 88mm L/56 firing PzGr.39 at 30deg armor at 500m: 110mm German 88mm L/56 firing PzGr39 at vertical armor at 500m: 119mm

Sherman M4A3E2 "Jumbo" gun manlet armor: 178mm Sherman M4A3E2 "Jumbo" front turret armor: 150mm Sherman M4A3E2 "Jumbo" front upper hull armor: 100mm angled at 47deg from vertical.

US 76.2mm M1A1 L/55 firing APCBC ammo at vertical armor at 500m: 94mm No specs given for vertical armor but it would be the same or slighty better.

In this case the Sherman Jumbo has enough armor to survive a 88mm L/56 APCBC( aka PzGr39) to the turret and due to the slope of the hull its questionable if a 88 will penetrate the upper front hull.

The Sherman Jumbo with a 76mm gun cannot penetrate the Tiger I's front turret or front upper hull at 500m range. It will do damage but not a 1 hit kill.

The Panther's better 75mm L/70 gun firing PzGr.39 would still be hard pressed to knock out a Sherman Jumbo from the front.

75mmL/70 penetration of 30deg armor at 500m: 124mm 75mm L/70 penetration of vertical armor at 500m: over 150mm

Panther could defeat the Jumbo's hull but not the turret unless under 500m. The Sherman 76mm could not penetrate the Panthers front hull but could penetrate the turret armor at 500m.

And I agree 1 or 2 hits from a 30mm should mess up a Hurricane.

However, currently in the game it takes 3-4 hits from point blank range to kill the Jumbo with either Panther or Tiger. And that's to the front hull, if you shoot at the turret it will take at least 5-6 rounds to knock it out.

It was durable alright, but not that durable. Not even the P-47 could withstand multiple hits from a 30mm cannon.

Dramatic sinking or the possibility to use a damaged ship (you reach your base to repair the boat before being sunk.) and also the possibility to destroy the buildings.

Maginot-- the possibility to destroy the buildings.

The BF1942 engine doesn't allow destroyable buildings except for the kind you see on Battle of Britain and Bombing the Reich - the destroyable targets. They however take a lot more CPU power than regular inactive buildings. It's the same issue as with destroyable terrain features: it is possible, but not favorable.
