Why do some people think the Panzer III will fix the Africa front. The Panzer III which was mainly used in Africa were mainly early versions of the Panzer III, these tanks had a amazing 30mm of frontal armour whichs means nearly any British tank will kill you in 1 shot frontal. Now you say we need a answer in the British Armour but I would like to announce this, The early Panzer III couldnt even hurt a Crusader unless it was in a engagement on the side & under 500m. The Panzer III couldnt even hurt the Matilda II. I think all you Panzer III people need to ask yourself a few good questions, Do we need this tank ASAP because it will be totally ineffective & in a few months I will be reading "What The **** Panzer III". If FH indeed does release soon thats great & all but we will still be greating owned by nearly every other tank in the game :rolleyes: . Basically guys the Germans are totally Ineffective in Africa, The easrly Panzer IV in Africa only had 20mm of Armour. I was once a Panzer III lover & believed it would make the African maps balanced it wont, anybody who doesnt agree look up the facts. So dont be suprised in your Panzer III isnt the UBER BALANCE MACHINE you expect.

EDIT - WATCH THE LANGUAGE

Why do people want it?

Because even if it was crap, it was still a big feature in WWII, and for a realism mod the fans like to see it in, that's why.

Personally I know it'll suck, the PIIIJ is better but I'm not bothered if it cant hurt a Matilda II. I'd just like to see it in. It's like saying the cast hull Sherman sucked, which for most of the time it did, but people still want to see it in their favorite mod.

Well most FH players think it will be the way Africa Maps are balanced.

You're not wrong there, but still, some seem to think they'll balance the Eastern Front too. I guess after they get killed by a T34 they'll think again.

Well thats the think, It all depends on the devs, They only good Panzer III was the Pz Ausf N which had a 75mm gun & 50mm Armour. What ready going to balance the Eastern Front is weapons like the german Stukas & AT guns, They where the germans strenghts in the early war while the Germans strenghts in the late war was Heavy tanks.

Germs strenghts was a huge numbor of naive and selfish humans which believed in a psychotic mans words! All the other stuff was equal to the enemies arsenals!

The Panzer III should be in as much as the TKS should be and all those ''non balancing weapons''

Where did that come from. early war the germans weapons wise where better than the Soviets but then the T34 happened.
