Dancing JesusHas anyone ever shot a bt7 with a king tiger and that little tank doesnt blow sky high? I'm pretty sure at any viewable distance in FH that the KT could knock out the bt7 in one hit, yet I ALWAYS need 2. Anyone else had this problem?

A heavy MG can almost take out a BT7. I just wrote it off to the Tiger II's shell poking ventilation holes in the armor.

Remember, guys, if you're weakening the Sherman to realistic values, the maps will have to be balanced some other way, and in a way that makes sense for the map. It's fine to have the Sherman be a tin coffin, but I think numbers will be the key way to balance things. Four or five Shermans for each Tiger and such. Kind of like how Valirisk is balanced at the moment (tons of soviet armor, but stronger and fewer German armor).

"Has anyone ever shot a bt7 with a king tiger" first off, WTF is going on when a bt7 and a KT meet in battle? the bt7 was based off of a prewar french (rofl, a french tank? whats that?!) tank. the kt was late '44. That is really messed up.

yeah, the sherman should suck a lot more. and remember, the KTs side armor was equal to a tiger royals frontal armor...

The french tanks rocked when they faught against the axis stuff. The Germans had to resort to pointing 88 guns meant for dishing out flak because none of their AT calibre stuff would penetrate.

They were outnumbered and out-stratigized. The German blitzkrieg was hell on he French tactics, which were seriously outdated.

The tank was based off the Christie suspension system which was designed by an American. The KT's armor quality sucked and there are many cases of the armor cracking when being hit by heavy shells,by the way what the hell is a tiger royal?. Learn some history before you make a dumb ass remark like that. Maybe if you did know a bit about WWII history you would know French tanks were better than the Germans in 1940.

Actually AB the KT was reffered to as the Tiger Royal. Koings Tiger means King Tiger or Royal Tiger.
