Real-BadSeed;4139760As far as im concerned, tanking is 1000 times better and more realistic in FH2.
Gotta say, I agree. I have never been and eastern front fan, but now I am thinking that FH2 tank battles in eastern Europe can't come soon enough.
solo the crusader mk1 and the valentine have 2pndrs and dont kill panzerIIIs and up with one hit. you also have to remember that these are the earlier panzerIVs with the long barrel. im pretty sure the later versions had side skirts and thicker armour.
The frontal turret armor was never factory upgraded past 50mm, the front hull armor was often upgraded to 50mm+30mm, making it effectively just under 80mm of armor.
The side armor never improved, as I recall.
I thought it was that the Short Barreled panzer Iv's were the main production, but the Long barrel Panzer IV was a prototype in combat testing

The front armor of the Panzer IVJ was upgraded to 80mm. Side skirts do just about nothing to help you protect yourself-they're meant to detonate shaped-charge explosives like M1 Bazooka rounds before they hit the actual tank.
i know that side skirts do nothing to tank rounds i was just saying they put them on and no the short barreled IV was not the main production i believe that later model panzer IVs were the most numerous tanks germany had in the later part of the war right?
There were many more Panzer IVs than Panthers or Tigers, if that is what you mean.
i believe in one map,Alam Halva when it was 16 vs 16 the german tanks can be taken out with 5 shots of the anti tank rifle on the front of the tanks,even though its a weak little tank but if you drive the same tank on other maps you can even dent the tanks except when you hit it perfectly on the side and in the *ss...
I don't run out of the Panzer 4's F2's "Special rounds" much anyway.
