How many of u thing the SHerman tank is overpowered? I think... The sherman tank in fh is to strong and not as relaistic as the real one. The real one only had 2 1/2 inches of armour which can penerated by any anti-tank weapon. One shoot in the front or back could take care of it. Even with a Pazeraka 30. Now the one in FH are like triple the amount of armour. It takes 2- 5 shots with the pazeraka 30 and same with the 100 and like 3 shots with the Panzer IV usally.

Whats a Pazeraka? If you mean the Panzerfaust...it was basicaly a hit or miss scenario. This is not a gun and its not going to hit in the exact position that it needs to hit to be effective every time fired. Plus you must take into account lag etc. I myself have almost always had a 1 shot kill with a faust unless I hit it in the track. And about the Panzer 4, I really wouldent be suprised that it didn't kill anything if you used a short barrel low velocity gun that fires HE rounds. This was an anti infantry tank. Its like when you take a Brummbar against another tank. The round might be 150mm but it has little to no AP ability, unless your firing on it from above. So my suggestion is, aim better and don't make mistakes by taking an anti-infantry tank against another tank. Edit: Also don't try and take on a Sherman Jumbo with a Panzer 4, you'll be crushed.

I can attack a Tiger with my Sherman from the front and win anyway. This is weird. What is more, it makes the game feel more like Vanilla, which is bad (as far as I am concerned).

The Jumbos seem slightly overpowered also. I saw one take 2 tiger rounds to the side and 1 to the front and still continue to fight. With the armor being that good and the fact its like a 10/1 ratio to getting the 76mm over the more realistic 75mm it becomes the Allies KT. Either make the 76mm variant very rare or check the armor. Also the basic sherman will most likely NOT win against a PIVH in a frontal battle. In a side battle, its whoever lands the shot first.

Shermans are a bit overpowered. They survive shots to the front from a Tiger, and the Tiger shot would go in one end and out the other and then continue on to penetrate the armor of the tank BEHIND the one that just got wasted. There's one or two documented cases of a Sherman not getting knocked out by a front shot from a Tiger.

Alternatively, the Sherman gun is a little more powerful then it should be I think. Its seriously harming P IV H front armor.

My suggestion, lower armor of Sherman, make more Shermans, and randomize so that some have long 76mm guns.

I think the Devs gave the Sherman its realistic armour and penetration values. But somehow the BF-Engine dosn´t reflect them realisticly and so the Shermans seems overpowered. So technicly its accurate, but ingame its overpowered...

It may indeed be too powerful... I can drive this tank and actually enjoy the ride and I even *gasp* kill german tanks with ease. In 0.5 the Sherman was renown for its pathetism, now it is even good to a certain degree.
