I suggest the Panzer 3 to be moddeled The panzer 3 was the main german tank during the early to mid war and would fill the void between the Panzer 2 (20 mm canon that can't penetrate anything) and the Panzer 4 (75 mm short infantry support gun) The version to be modelled should be the 3h (50 mm gun) used during the desert war. (I can't really understand why it has not been modelled before. The desert maps feel totally unbalanced with Shermans and Crusaders against Pz 2s and Pz 4s)

It's already modelled and it's probably already skinned and already coded aswell. Look out for 0.62!

Well, actually, you wouldn't stand a chance against the Sherman in a Panzer 3 - whatever the version. The Sherman's 75mm shells have further range than yours and would just kill you before you make your own gun count. You could be able to strike through the Sherman's armor - but you would have to make it into combat range. Which - as I said before - won't probably happen in the first place.

The Panzer 3 already was outgunned by the Sherman's predecessor, the M3 Lee / Grant tank. Though that one's 75mm gun (similar or same one that was used on the Sherman later on) was limited in traverse, it was vastly able of killing Germans tanks outside of their combat range. The M3 driver just had to put the tank point towards the enemy - which you usually do anyways since the front armor is strongest.

The Panzer 3 would be a match for the Crusader, yes. It would lose against the Mathilda 2 hands down though both Crusader and Mathilda have the same 2pdr (about 4 cm) gun since the Mat2's armor was just unpenetratable for anything except for the 88.

Concerning the Cromwell, I guess that one would also be at least equal, if not again superior to the Panzer 3. So there's not much that the Panzer 3 would be up against on the same level.

BTW: Errm, this subject has been brought up quite a few times. You would have found out if you'd used the Search button. :D So welcome to the Forum! :wave:

I can kill shermans with a panzer4d, although it is a challenge its only really hard on el alamein. Could kill shermans so much easier with the luchs.

$5 says its in already, but their just fucking with us. I mean, the only reason 0.62 is getting made is to balance the game out. They got the Pz38(t), but no 3? I mean, c'mon...

Its going to be in the game, thats why were waiting... 0.62 was done a month ago, now were waiting on 0.63.

The 38(T) will be cool for early maps, IIRC, it had a better 37mm than the PIIIE-F. A PIIIJ with the 50mmL60 gun would be good in the desert maps, lower silhouette than the PIV, and a much better gun than the PIVD. AFAIK, it was capable of penetrating the Matilda at short range, with proper positioning. Would easily take out other Brit tanks of the period. Almost as good as the PIVG, except for range and HE damage. Plus, with the STuG in game, it's already half-modelled :D Better to see these IMO than hardly produced 'wonder weapons' like the Maus.
