The shermans are way overpowered in 0.66, a sherman can take 90% of the energy of a Jagdpanther with a frontal shot. A thick armour of a Jagdpanther, with the inclination factor...notice that!
overpowerd! i came face to face with a sherman jumbo against a jagdpanther... the jagdpanzer survived 2 shot on the front! he gave me 1 shot ......*auw* are you sure it wasent a wolverine wher your drinving in??
I played Sector 318 on our clan server and I engaged a Sherman Jumbo at long range and killed it through the front armor IIRC in 4 shots, The Jumbo also took me down top over 1/2 health which I didnt think was right. I have little problems killing Shermans anymore through front armor.
Also I cant remember the server but on Goodwood I had the Tiger and went to the north road leading out of the Brit base and killed one at long range coming out of the Brit base.
That can't be. Every time I'm in the Jagdpanther the shots just bounce off and don't do any damadge at all!
shermans are correct now...
Weird...it was not a Jumbo, nor a Jackson or M10. I was shot by a Sherman and when i died it showed "someone[Sherman]me".
Probably he just finished what a Jackson had started.
I didn't make it!
It also depends WHERE you shoot at the front I think, and the damage of a tank is a guess between 2 numbers, and the Sherman isn't a weak tank; if the Sherman has a bit luck, he can win from a Panther! But 1 shot of a Sherman can be fatal, if he shoots at the belly of the tank.....and he can from the frontal :D
i agree! last week i was gaming in falais pocket.. i hide my sherman behind some trees and bushes and waited, I spot a panther in my front shoot at it on his belly, 1 shot and he was out...
*in the eyes of the enemy player i was a ceater*
Well in some cases the damage system can turn very weird in Forgotten Hope, this is could be due to a number of reasons such as server lag or a bug.
Personally, I think the Shermans are correct now. I was killed by a Panzer IV Ausf. F2 with a shot to the front armour and I had full health. Same goes for a few engagements with Tigers and 88mm emplacements.
