good day, fh freaks one more thing i have to complain about: the sherman jumbo, which is an uparmored with i think somethin bout 9 cm front armor. The thing with this tank is, that a tiger needs like 3-5 frontal hits to destroy it, which is in my opinion way to much. I think the jumbo has only been implemented to give the allies some kinda "wonder anti tiger tank" i think it has a 75 cm cannon, and i has been built 253 times total. What means that its very rare, as rare as an elephant- even jagdpanthers were more(about 400)! so if you want to give the allies a better chance against tigers and stuff, then give them more sherman fireflies, cause these were anything else but rare! But not this ultra-overarmored supertank! It does more damage to a kingtiger than a IS-2, and that one has 128mm cannon and better armor.

the IS2 has HE and HEAT shells :rolleyes: the panthers 75mm beats the tigers 88mm - size is not all that counts

Well Fireflies where rare, there where only 600 Fireflies produced. IS-2 where quite common on the other hand, 3475 being produced. Also the IS-2 was used more against fortifications and such, because of its slow reloading time. About the Jumbo, only the front and the turret is heavily armoured, try attack it in the sides/rear it will go down fast.

Pff, like the Firefly is so good. I was in the unfortunate positon to duel a Tiger tank on market garden around the church, i managed to flank it two times, hit it two times in the side, one time in the front (hit detection came up three times). And i didnt kill it, once it exploded it was because of some bunnyhopping satcheltosser :/

Yeah. It's the 2nd best tank in the game currently. It beats Panther, IS-2 and Tiger in all aspects. I guess King Tiger is better though.. Elefant and Jagdpanther and tank destroyers, but Jagdpanther is no match for it anyway..

Hmm do you have a link to the site claiming that? According to Tarrif.net only 600 where produced. :uhm:

Sherman fireflys gun kills a tiger easy, I'd say a firefly is very good. Jagdpanthers... don't bother with them, I took one out with a sdkfz222 eekx.gif
