SOrry folks here i go again winge winge winge.
Well there i was in my Cromwell again on Market Garden in the town between both bridges so as i could watch both and engage any tanks coming across from the german side, when over the main bridge rolled a Panzer IV i waited till he was right up at the Brit end and fired my first shot straight into his side, nothing? not even smoke? in total it took 3 shots to kill him on his side armour, IS THIS RIGHT??
Firstly what is the gun on the Cromwell supposed to be 6lbr or 75mm 2nd what are its penetration values what is the side armour protection on the Panzer IV
Have the Devs made changes to the PIV or to the Cromwell gun or both.
Maybe its distance but from my peronnal experience I shoot with anything on the side of a panzer and it blows up... well almost anything
I think a cromwell should be able to take out a panzer 4 from the side in one shot and I'm pretty sure it does. Maybe you just got lag?
it was lag....probably had a high ping
Happens to me from time to time
Yeah could be lag at least i hope so, i dont normaly suffer from lag as i have a 1mb broadband connection, however i was playing during the day when all the kids were on holiday which i think has some affect on my connection speed.
It must have been lag, no other way to explain this.
Even 1mb connections get lag spikes...
The Panzer IV H armor rating Front Upper Hull 80mm Front Lower Hull 80mm Front Turret 50mm Side hull 30mm The cromwell has the 6 pounder in FH right...... thats 106mm of pentration...the 75mm gun only has 97mm penetration.. In most cases, you should have been able to kill it. Possible secnerios include 1: It either a bug or you managed to score 3 glancing hits on the panzer IV frontal armor..... For this scenario to happen, he must have been sitting still and you must not have moved your gun of your original point of aim at his lower side hull. The panzer IV fowards and you shot at its from its right side.... The cromwell has a 6 pounder gun that is mounted Left of the main gun sight..so the gun sight shoots slightly to the left of the center of the site.. Therefore, under the cetain set of circumstances , if u had your gun centered at center right side of the panzer 4, the actually shelll would have flew slightly to the left of the center of the gun site and glance the Panzer IV's side armor......is either that or a bug..... 2: u missed first two shots and got a hit on teh third. 3: its a bug with FH.. 4: Network Latency.(lag) ....hard to say......less like.. Was the panzer IV moving at the time...did your point of aim after the 1st and second shot? but a lag spike which last for 3 seconds , thats 3000ms would get you booted from a server or at least get a warning message on the BF server...
Why is that then. Go on give me a Technology lesson im begging for it.

Shit happens, your connection has a dud moment [data transfer rates not being totally consisted] you lag, you die. EDIT: and yes the Pzkw IV's side armour is thrash, hide Luke HIDE! ;)
