"Crunchy", rough ride in Tiger and Panther?

I've noticed both the Tiger and the Panther have very rough, "crunchy" rides on anything but flat terrain. That is, the view from the inside is jittery and it is relatively easy to get these two tanks stuck on small dips in the ground. Has anyone else observed this?

At first I thought it was related to the fact that these tanks are "new" or reworked, but not all new tanks have these problems. For example, the Brummbar has a nice, supple suspension (no jitter) and is not prone to getting stuck in potholes.

It should also be said that this behaviour for the Tiger, at least, is certainly not historical. ;) Quoting here, the Tiger had an "extremely soft and stable ride for a tank of this weight and size." The in-game Tiger and Panther are anything but. They also tend to jump around a fair bit while shooting and aiming, much more so than the other tanks (e.g. Panzer-IV H). Perfectly-aimed shots sometimes go wide in these tanks, but not the others.

I haven't been able to find a thread on this topic, but it's possible my search just wasn't thorough enough. I would hate to repeat an already-discussed topic. ;)

Is this gonna be fixed in 0.6?

To add my $0.02, I've noticed the same thing. It seems to totally contradict what I've read of the American and British tests of both vehicles. Their rides were "extremely smooth" and both "would make an excellent and stable gun platform, even on the move."

Perhaps its a part of game balance? Make you stop to shoot etc.

How ever you look at it the FH Tiger suspention is much much better than the suspention the Tiger has in vanilla BF, that is like driving a rocking chair.:bows:

But agreed there is a tendency to get stuck in very small potholes - very annoying.:moon: But in the big perspective I would categorize this as a minor problem - something to fix when every thing else is A OK.

Agreed - once you drive the Panther in Wernheim in a ditch you won't be able to get it out, ever. Now I think the Panther will be fixed though. But the Tiger, never had problems with that nice piece of equipment.

Brummbaer uses a Pz IV suspension I believe. So that would explain that.
