'[BC Tex Arcana']This is another subject that comes up that confuses me: The Tiger 1 is not THAT slow. It is nearly as fast as a Pz.4, and turns better...

Well, according to tarrif.net the panzer4 F/2 has a road speed of 40 km. And the Tiger 38 km. They both have a rough terrain speed around 20 km.

Not that slow if you ask me compared to the panzer4 F/2. Ofcourse rough terrain... well what do you consider "rough" terrain?

jumjumAs I suspected, there are plenty of entries, with no consensus that I see. Which would seem to say that most FH vehicles do what they are supposed to do, and how they did it RL.

True, in most case, the question is :

Its not about how big it is, its about how you use it :naughty:

A T34 can be the death of entire axis tank column when used correctly.

A Kingtiger can make a 100/0 round with a good tanker.

But...

A T34 can be a rolling sarcophagus for someone who doesn't flank

A Kingtiger driven by an overconfident tanker can be single handedly killed by an M36 tankers who can aim for the tracks.

It works both ways, all vehicules can be extremely good on some situations, and extremely poor on others. You just have to be at the good place at the good time.

The Tiger seems to handle hills, and bumps better than the Pz.4's...

I was driving down a long straight road with a tiger behind me, when we reached the end of the road, he was ahead of me, and i never took my foot off the gass.

Or people who pull off insane shots with AT kits like me.

The Churchill, though many people think it's real armored up, and while it can withstand maybe two shots in the front from a KT, a single Panzerfaust 100m in the rear, sometimes the side can kill it. Two shots from a PanzerIVH in the side kills it. I would have to say the most overrated vehicle in FH is the King Tiger. While you can kill tons and tons of tanks with it, survive the whole round in it, have a K-D ratio of 56-0, it takes ONE shot from a Firefly in the rear to destroy you. You MUST be aware of where infantry is, yours and theirs. A PIAT to the bottom kills it. If you let just a single tank with 50mm gun and up slip behind you you can't turn fast enough before he gets another shot. Moral of the story: Whenever in a tank, ALWAYS be aware and shooting at any place someone might hide, ammo is not a problem unless you get REALLY low.
