Yes there are obvious things the bf engine simply cannot account for which most of us authentinuts would like to see. for instance use of tank optics, armor quality (early war better materials, late war lack of materials) mechanical problems such as break downs gun jams etc, different types of ammo, REALISTIC physic interaction (actual track systems, none of this wheel business) and thats just my short list :nodding:

Ok, this has gone offtopic, the Tiger wasn't a failure, but the Firefly could penetrate it most of them time from <1000m and sometimes (depending on ammo) up to 2000m. The germans feared the firefly. As Allied currently everyone fears the Tiger. Make it how it was meant to be, one tank being able to kill the Tiger because it could is not dropping the Tiger's "uberness".

Thats kinda the point, since FH doesnt use the best ammo that means no APDS for the Firefly and that cuts its max penetration capability in half.

The APCBC ammo for the Firefly's 17lbr is roughly even with the killing power of the Tiger's 88mm gun firing PZ.Gr.39 but because the Sherman Firefly doesnt have the same survivability as the Tiger due to lack of heavy armor the two should not be equal.

One shot from a Tiger should easily kill a Sherman Firefly from almost any range. One shot from a Sherman Firefly may or may not kill a Tiger or Panther. Only a side shot should be a guaranteed one shot kill.

Offtopic, but I absolutely love your avatar. The Army Of Darkness totally owns, as does Bruce Campbell :)
