A few things I noticed after having seeing the display at Bovington on the 23rd. In FH the Matilda 1 is very slow, unlike the real thing that can travel faster than a running man! The FH model is very good and compares well I must say. Most interesting of all was the Tiger turret traverse. They swung it from pointing forward to sideways through 90 deg. Believe me it was a lot faster than the FH model. I’ll post some pics and videos on my site in the next few weeks once I’ve edited them. Perhaps a few changes are needed in FH?

Finally, hope this gets through and the TigerE's turret gets fixed! If not, I want my 6th gear that made it swing fast. Its unbearable now.

It's not at all unbearable. Its just inconvenient. I can still own with that tank.

Lately, I dont know why, but I cant aim with it! I swear to god, that while the turret might have turned slow, it didnt go down or up at the same fucken speed. A fucking manually operated flak moves faster vertically. That and the fact that a Firefly kills it in 1-2 shots regardless of where it hits, is another piss off. But that doesnt just count for the tiger, the King Tiger has the same problem. Yet the 88 on the KT, doesnt kill the Firefly in one shot?

Just some bullshit man.

They should return the Tank to its .5 Glory, or whenever I started playing this game and it didnt suck! Just because Gerry lost the war doesnt mean he has to loose at everything in this game. I mean hell...

Poland vs Germany - Fair chance. Russia vs Germany - In favor of Germans. Desert vs Germany - Ride to hell and back. Britain vs Germany - Another trip to hell. US vs Germany - Well balanced.

If it was a race between you (in uniform, with boots..not running gear) and the Matilda, then I'd put my money on the Matilda anytime!

17 pounder, high velocity, not to the front but anywhere else, most likely would kill it.
