Hi, I just went through the manual and saw that there was NO PANTHER G!!!!!!!!!. Is the Panther D they are showing in there the same as the panther G? Such as more armour now? Developers PLEASE ANSWER THE Question!!
Not sure it's really necessary. After all, how much difference (in terms of what can be represented in FH) is there between the G and D? Certainly not as much as the difference between say, the PzIVD and H, or the T34/75 and the T34/85.
We have Panther D in FH. No other versions. It has been tweaked (i hope, well it says so in readme). There is not much difference between D and G, 10mm thicker turret front and 10mm thicker hull side.
There are also some differences in hull, mantlet, engine deck, etc. Well, we need G anyway, there were around 800 D, 2000 A and 3000 G versions. By the way, version D was the first on the battlefield, followed by A in the late summer and G in '44
And the Hull MG, better reliablity and larger production numbers.
its the psychological advantage of it for me. even if its the same model and code, but says pantherG when i own a t34, ill be fine.
oh, and its the T-34/76, not 75. It featured a 76.2mm cannon, as opposed to a 75mm gun.
The thing is.. The Panther G rolled off the asembly lines to combat the newly designed t34/85. If they exclude the G from the game they are taking part of histort of WW2. THe hull was different in the G also, there where small slates of metal sticking from the sides that ran back the engine, also better armour protection. Also the Panther is in NO LEVELS IN THE GAME, say 2 which is quite annoying when the tiger is in every possible map. Panther was in most major engagemnts anways.@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
why don't you do a search instead of making a fool of yourself with your accusations
-_- it never ceases to amaze me when people instanly jump to the conclusion: If it's not ingame now, that means it will never be ingame!!! OMFG!!! ARRRGGHHH *panic panic*
I don't care if the Panther G is pink and shoots chocolate covered dogs!
What we really need is the Panzer III.
Too many maps are already lacking because there isn't one. This was the biggest workhorses of the war. It and the Panzer IV were the 2 most common German tanks, and in maps like El Alamein, and the earlier Soviet ones there is a distinct void where this vehicle should be.
Heh, I did say 75, didn't I?:beer:
