War_SnakeWell,There are lots already but they are missing some:jagdtiger,Jadgpanther,hetzer,Panzer III,Brummbar,Sturmtiger,panzerjager marder,panzerjager marder II,panzerjager marder III,Jagdpanzer IV.Though if they add the MAUS,USA should get the T28/95 and the Russains should get the IS3.
IS3 never saw combat. It drove in the victory parade, but that was the first time it was used.
Panzer III was meant for anti-tank at the time that it was made, but it went obsolete very quickly, around 1942.
Ok as a newbie to the mod I wont open my mouth too much but I also think the german side needs some more tank destroyers in the african maps and late war maps. If i am not totally wrong there were a few of the first Tigers used in Africa , rumored to bring the brits panic & mayhem but suffering from technicall breakdowns. Ok back to the topic: The TankDestroyers and Sturmgeschütze were the german awnser to the growing masses of allied Tanks , some like the Marder used captureed AT-Guns and old chassis / captured chassis , even the later build ones needed less recources than a normal tank and were easier to produce due to the lack od a turret. For those who can read german do a google-search on panzerlexikon.de , forum wont let me post the link for some reason ??? you will find tanks , tank destroyers , mobile artillierie....... form nearby all countries that took a part in WW2. You will find accurate infos about speed , armour/angle of the armour , weapons , versions, ammunition, when which version of the tank was build .......... There are Tank tactics , Infantry Anti-Tank Weapons and even a few Videos in black & white where you will see the Steel Beasts in Action. And if you want a good laugh take a look at the prototypes that never got build ;D Maus , Elaphant , Jagdtiger & Sturmtiger were too rare to and not to good due to technicall breakdowns and slow speed. if you really want them put them in a map like Alpenfestung , everywhere else they would be misplaced in my humple opinion.
Well, as far as I know, the devs are making an Sa Mle 37 for the french... So with that, the Char b1, the Somua 35, the D.520 and LeO 451, what will the germans get? Worse tanks(Pz.II, Pz.38t, some Pz.III's, very uncommon Pz.IV's, in tiger quantities.), Worse planes(Bf.109 worse fighter in the variants used then, Stuka will be a worse bomber in FH than the heavier Leo 451 and especially Farman F.222 if its in), Worse AT guns(Pak 36), The only saving grace will be the Flak 88 if some of these artillery guns and Tank hunters arent in. No Panzerfaust, AT rifles wont penetrate most french armour, and, well, yeah...
Please lord, put in some good artillery and tank hunters for fall gelb. My PzII's and III's get owned by somuas in Blitzkrieg, I have had to call in like 80 stuka runs to kill like 4 matildas before, fall gelb is very demoralizing for the germans.
Mazz Nashorn - Medium priority, was decently common and has the only reported kill of a M26.
Now that's a story I would like to hear more about...
I'd say Russians need more TD's too instead of getting the late war T34/85 in 42-43 maps. Leo 451 isn't that a medium bomber? Germans should get Ju88's and He111's too.
GocadNow that's a story I would like to hear more about...
A Nashorn from 2nd Company of Schwere Heeres Panzer Jaeger Abteilung 93 was also responsible for the destruction of the only M26 Pershing, destroyed in Europe. Pershing from the 3rd Armored Division was knocked out at the distance of 250 meters with a single shot. This engagement took place in the town of Niehl, north of Cologne on March 6th, 1945.

afaik, the Ju88 wasnt used much during fall gelb, and while they have the He-111, it will be really hard to use them while the french have air superiority, as the main reason the Detwoines fell to the Bf109s was that the crews werent as trained, some only having even 3 days of training before going to fight. FH players wont have those problems.
How many Pershings actually made it into the fray?
Im Januar 1945 erreichten die ersten 20 Pershings des europäische Schlachtfeld
In january 1945 the first 20 Pershings reached the european battlefield
hope to see soon in FH the Jagdpanther Jagdpanther In Action ! On July 30th of 1944 near Les Loges in Normandy, three Jagdpanthers from schwere Panzer Jaeger Abteilung 654 ambushed a squadron of British 6th Guards Tank Brigade destroying some 10-11 Churchill tanks in a short period of two minutes. At the same time, other squadron of British 6th Guards Tank Brigade opened fire at three Jagdpanthers causing crews of two of them to abandon their vehicles (because of damaged tracks), while the third one retreated. from achtungpanzer
