Big LeBowSki so is the current stugs ingame made out of pz4 or pz3?

The StuG IIIB seems to be made out of a Panzer IV and looks kinda, well, un-finished. The StuG IIIG has the proper number of wheels, i.e. seems to be made out of a Panzer III...

So will there be new StuG models as well once the Panzer III is finished?

Beast of WarYep, the Brittish anti tank "cruiser" tanks were weak and all Brittish tanks at that time had an inferior main cannon......i rather meant the thick armoured infantry support Mathilda's....The"queen of the Battlefield"

Btw : If we are so focussed on getting a Panzer III in Afrika, should we not at the same time ask for the M3 Grant ??

Im not gonna request anything. Last time I got cussed out in Latin by Hartmann.

The RTR Grant is not that bad, and I have played with the code on it to make it FH specs and it is a fun tank. You drive it like a Assault gun but you still have the turret mounted 37mm A/T gun to cover your back and sides.

But DICE wont let anyone use the RTR vehicles.

I was gonna export the M3 Grant and M-11/39 for a First El Alamein map I was working on but decided against it when I found out DICE has refused to allow RTR vehicles to be used.

It's true I know little of skinning but I assume The Panzer III will atleast get three skins (Grey, Winter, Desert). Does all have to be completed before you can introduce it in FH? Couldn't atleast one (atleast I hope one skin is done?) be introduced ? Or isn't the skinning the problem but the BF2 compability stuff? Obviously it's the vanilla desert maps that are desperate and Kharkov Winter. Tobruk is near impossible to achieve axis victory and Gazala requires a lot more skill of the axis.

We skin with layers, one of them is the camo color only, when you finish one skin the other camos can be done in 1/2 hour.

That's true, the most numerous PzIII variants had a 50mm cannon, which was upgraded on successive variants from L42 to L60.

But I think the last version of the tank was equipped with a 75mm cannon, the Ausf N / (Sturmpanzer III) had a 75mm L/24, which was the cannon originally fitted to the Panzer IVD.

That F2 will keep you happy on desert maps. I've used it many a time against shermans and crusaders in BFE. The only thing I fear in it is a Greyhound (BFE's Crusader has one..... not the GOD DAMN STAGHOUND) since it is hard to hit and so damn fast. And if Rad is working on it I can expect it to be the pride of the desert. Also the Stug3G has a awesome desert skin that I would like to see in a late DAK map.
