BDNeonAny kind of tank including the panther can be taken out with a bazooka shot to the top of the engine, located to the rear of a tank. I cant think of many time's that tactic let me down. It's best to be up high to do this, in a church steeple for example.
Hopefully backblast will be added, making this tactic a little more risky and forcing the shooter to be a bit more careful about where he fires.
maybe it would be an idea to bring "Panzernahverteidigungswaffen" to the game. http://www.tigerpanzer.de/nahvw.htm -> Article (german) that explains the system. it's similar to the systems with which the tanks fired smoke to hide them when they where under enemy fire. you where able to fire smoke, signal or he-grenades into the surrounding area of the tank - last one to defend from cc infantry attacks . Maybe it could be interesting for forgotten hope - with 1 or 2 shots eg. to give a tank the ability to defend from 1 or 2 infantry attacks with haftminen/satchel charges (too much ammo for the "nahverteidigungswaffe" would make a tank a cc infantry killer, too and render the infantry useless on some maps)
yuiopabout the schurzen, I think it would be cool to a version that has a panel or two missing to simulate battle wear on the vehicle as in the attached photo. It would also give someone with good aim a sweetspot to shoot for :D.
Good point. It was also common for many PzIII's and especially PzIV's to have the turret skirts and not the hull skirts.
Whoah, and I thought using T-55s were outdated.
