Well what little that I was able to dig up, tanks were not used as artillery. So the programmers were correct on that point. So I am happy with the way things are set in the game now except, that the destroyer front set of guns cannot be used for artillery. The battleship front set can be but not the destroyers front set. Oh well. Can't have everything :)
You should have a play with the BattleGroup42 mod - the light tanks can be used for artillery spotting (right click when in position 2).
I will have a look at it. Thanks for the info!
If you read some part of the manual of the Tiger ( Tigerfibel : you have to be able to read german ofcourse ) you would know the KwK 88 gun could be used as artillery, and could fire a HE grenade as far as 8000 m
Where can one find this info on the Tiger tank?? I wouldn't mind reading it. Thanks!
Here.....it looks kind of childish, but i guess the ones driving it late in the war were barely 15 to 18 years old.....
Found something about HE shell gun range of the KwK mounted on the tiger on achtung panzer :
An enemy battery was engaged at a range of 7600 meters by using a gunner's quadrant. The enemy battery was silenced after six shells were fired at it. It is proposed that the Tiger-Kompanie be outfitted with a Feldfunksprecher f (radio set "f") to enable forward observers to direct their fire. In addition, the inverted-image range finders should be exchanged for converging image reinspirers. Large errors result from using the former type in terrain with no discernible landmarks.
You can find a lot by just typing what you want info on in a searh engine program.....
Thanks for the info. I know how to use a search engine....but since you have found it, I thought that you would share the link with the rest of us that's all. Sorry if I offended you.
