The Sherman gun IS too powerful. I heard it will be weakened for 0.62.

Anyway, today again this happened on Bocage. I shot one Sherman tank 5 times as it moved. Nothing registered as a hit. It was from a distance, but without much lag at least 2-3 should've hit, since I usually hit quite well, but no, nothing affected it. Happened with a couple of other Shermans on Bocage too. It's starting to annoy me greatly, to say the least. And how the heck does the Sherman take 3 hits from a PzIVH/StuG to the front to kill? They kill the StuG/PzIVH with two shots...

Yep, I seem to recall the StuGs were somewhat bugged as well. But I think it was the other way round and they were too powerful...? Like too much armor and too much firepower... hmmm.... :confused:

Hmm, nope, I don't think it is too powerful or strong. The gun is pretty much as it should, and armor too. It can be taken out by a single T-34 shot to the front, as it should be. It's pretty easy to kill. Not too strong - just compare to killing the Panzer IV H! The rear and sides on the IV H are fine, but the front... it's ridiculous. Like I once said in the past, took 3 direct hits with a Tiger to kill the bugger through the front armor. And it should've blown up with just one shot.

The list of tanks that are too strong (in 0.61, of course don't know about 0.62 - and supposedly 0.70 does the damage system for tanks from scratch): Tiger (everywhere), Panzer IV H (front), King Tiger (everywhere), Sherman (a bit too strong in general it seems, especially front)... hmm well there are probably others but can't remember all at once. But as you see, most of the more capable German tanks are stronger than they should. A T-34 should be able to take out a Tiger from the side with 2-3 shots, yet it takes 5-8. A T-34/85 should do it with 1-2 shots, it takes 3. And KT should blow up from a single side shot with an IS-2, and 2 shots with a T-34/85. Well, it will be interesting to see what the 0.70 offers in this regard!
