well i would expect it to be included, if possible to code properly. if its absolutely realistic values or not in the end, or a scaled version thereof, who knows. but, im sure something along those lines will atleast be experimented with :)

I do not know much of coding in python. But if it is possible it would definitely be a nice feature.

Btw LordKhaine

Why make an argument saying that the sherman could take the Tiger on in frontal combat in your first comment then ask if it was true later on.

The Sherman 75mm could NOT penetrate(SP) at any range. Even if it could the Tiger would 1 shot it.

You're saying a 75mm gun pointing point blank at the back of a tiger would not penetrate it. Wow. If only hitler was smart enough to have his entire army consist of 20 tigers.;)

He's talking about FRONTAL combat ;) The back of the Tiger had, I think, 80mm armor tho, wich is quite big for the lousy 75mm. It might penetrate at about 100-200meters tho.

The main problem about tank combat is the HP system, if we could get a tank to "die" once its driver dies or once its engine is damaged beyond repair, then it would be better. Even if a shell penetrated the armor, there were still chances that it would just go trough the tank without damaging anything or killing anyone (altho there might be a couple of dangerous hot metal shrapnels flying trough the tank after that).

Komrad_b you are a major allied tank whore so when he says make axis less powerfull im expecting tigers to be taken out my 50cal machine guns.

My life is complete, at last I am recognized as the allied tank whore that I am :-)

Oops! my bad.

hehe, I think the chances of noone being harmed by a shell ripping a new asshole in the tank is about 1 in 1000. Its like putting a penny in a tin can and shaking it. Now take that penny and make it into a thousand smaller pennies, and the can into a tank cab. I doubt any section was left untouched. :D

I'll get a allied tank whore userbar for you tomorrow Komrad

lol carl i meant frontal m8 :D

Komrad_b what servers you play on i wouldn't mind taking you on ;)

*Edit

Tiger penetrates cromwell front armour at 2500m Cromwell's 75mm gun unable to penetrate tigers front armour at any distance

Tiger penetrates M4A2 Sherman front armour at 1800m Sherman with short barrel 75mm gun unable to penetrate tigers front armour at any distance

Tiger penetrates M4A4 Sherman at 1800m M4A4 with 76mm gun has to close within 700m to penetrate the tigers front armour

Tiger penetrates Sherman firefly at 1800m Firefly(M4 armed with british 17-pdr anti tank gun) can pierce Tiger front armour at 1750m

Tiger penetrates t34/85 at 1400m t34/85(Armed with 85mm gun) has to get within 500m to have a chance of destroying tiger.

There wasn't one for the T34/76 but id say it was the same as the Sherman 75mm.

Quite encouraging, since most tank battles in FH are at very close ranges, much less than 500m usually.

I mostly play on the new Allied Front server these days (I actually am one of the admins there). Theres not a lot of people playing there but eventually it'll get popular.

Im sure it would be scaled down to fit FH2

So 500m would = half or so, so we don't see t34/85s taking on tigers at max range :lol:

Btw there was never an M4A4 armed with the M1 76mm gun, production of the M4A4 was stopped before the 76mm was introduced. They must mean the M4A1/A2 and A3 76mm armed versions
