Just a question: Will the Goliaths be limited in range/fuel/duration? Or can you sit down at a radio table in the Axis base, drive the Goliath over to the Allied base, position it under the sweetest piece of equipment you can find and wait for some poor unsuspecting fellow to enter it?

I guess you could if you felt like driving for 10 minuets, just to blow yourself up. They go about as fast as the FH tractors and they die from infantry weapons if youre spotted. They also have no external camereas (only 1st person) so its hard to tell what's around you. handy for setting up ambushes though. it has a huge blast radius.

This sounds so much fun! :naughty: Are they controlled from a kit, like the bombers? Or are they controlled from a stationery location at a base?

Theyr cotrolled from radio tables, which are in bases (in tents or bunkers). on seelow there is one in the rear base, and one above the first flag on a hill (where that screenshot is taken from. you can see it)

Well, here is how I would use it...

Set one up along a road, under a tree, in a bush, just hidden.

Tank comes along...

Drive it under tank, then kaboom...

That's silly. The explosion shouldn't be able to go through a wall without knocking down the wall in the process.

Use your imagination, i hate it when simple brick or wooden walls stop explosions or tankshells while infantry is safely sitting behind it. It's just another flaw in the bf engine.
