Hey guys, I am a little new here but i have been told this is a realism mod. When looking at the homepage near the bottom there is a Picture of the Sherman firely. But the problem is it still has its hull mg. When the sherman's were Modified the hull mg was removed and the mounting plated over. When you look at alot of the picture's you can see the mount still visible. But the space was used for Ammunition. So if that hull mg is in the tank cant carry as much ammo. Thefore you run out alot faster. Thanks JPH

dont know why its there, if your right (you seem smart enough) then it shouldnt. BUT this is only a semi-realistic game which sometimes will sacrifice gameplay for realism which means thats why the firefly has a hull MG, most other tanks do so to even it out the firefly does...

To speed firefly conversions some left the guns in and in some cases the crew wanted the gun left in to give German Infantry somethng to consider before approaching the front of the tank, and the Firefly still had the co-axially mounted MG.

Who the hell cares about the Hull MG I just want a 17 pdr that is actually powerful not one that bounces off Panzer 4's and Stugs. Is there like an unwritten video game rule that German tanks aren’t allowed to be killed by 1 shot? There is no fucking way at any range you can name that a Panzer or Stug was going to survive a 17 pdr round and it barley even slows down a Tiger which it should easily at decent range as well.

i would say the StuG might'nt be that lucky to survive a frontal hit. the thickness and slope was fairly good/.

i can take out stugs with 1 shot from a sherman,cromwell etc.All you have to do is aim for the tracks.

With the 17pdr you should be able to hit a panther or tiger in the tracks and knock it out.
