The M4A1, looks great, but i would think the point of adding the M4A1, A2, new remodeled A3. was to show variety of the shermans. Like the map Sector 318 has just A1's but there should also be tghe A3's How about when the remodeled A3, and the new new A2 comes out the tanks should randomly spawn like.. on sector 318, one of the M4A1's go down the next tank is the A3, then the A2 and so on.:feedback: dotn get me wrong but the tanks look stupendous.

The M4A2 was only used by the USMC, the Red Army and Commonwealth Forces (as the Sherman III) so it wouldn't really fit in on Sector 318. I'd like to see the M4(105), then it could be used by Canadian, New Zealand and Polish troops as the Sherman IB (if the New Zealand Army and British equipped Polish forces were ever to make it into the mod). The current M4A3(105) wouldn't be suitable for Commonwealth and Polish forces as only seven Sherman IV's (M4A3's) were supplied to the British, and all were armed with 75mm guns.

The M4A2 and M4A3 are in the works and should be out soon, that has been stated by the devs before.

See i nknow that but what my point of this thread is that the tanks would spanw randomly to show there variety of them out of the 49,000 that were made. and yes the majority of british shermans were M4A4's also a dev told me the E8 was done but it would be relassed in .67. oh since theres the Sandbagged sherman the other shemrans could be sandbagged too. but as i said that they would randomize. As in there the regular shermasn the A1, A2, A3, A4 as they randonmly spawn when one dies, if there s a sandbagged sherman than they could also randomize what A's they come in A1, A2,A3,A4 ,E2, E8 etc and so on. (no offense)

The Sandbaggd Sherman at least was not ready, If a E8 was done then it probably wasnt ready either.

They had a coding problem with the AT penetration on the sandbags and the sideskirts so that's why it isnt in, just in case you didnt know.

Other shermans are already done :) But they need a skin, exporting and coding - and that takes time. But creating random spwaned shermans idea is good,we've discussed it before, so don't worry :) I haven't done the M4A4 yet, but it's a 15 mins work - I just have to lenghten the M4 and add some parts
