:salute: I'm monitoring progress with admiration - ready and willing to part with some cash for your marvellous efforts. I would be interested to hear how you intend to distribute the upgrade and what form (content) you would include. ATB Mort

Driving a guy to drinking is I think a first for me :DL but
what a compliment Mort, thanks.
The first step that would enable me to handle the sum of the
potential problems on a customer support bases will be a release of the changes made to the existing stock sim components. which will include the reloading and repair vehicles and the very important AI tanks with a new damage model that is a vital part of the new single player missions approach that's been developed.
Also the medium expanded size map that has an 18Km (11.18 miles) height and width, will give everyone a chance to get the feel of large battlefield. And a way to get feed back and allow more of a taste of the large 22.3 mile high 22.3 mile wide map. And too the multi-player modders a chance to keep up with the new addon that will follow.
I think that will be an important step for the multi guys too to get on board. Because I have not done a thing in the area of "multi player" but don't want to ignore all their hard work and dedication to TvT. But I definitely do not what support questions on something I know nothing about. However, with the openness of this game engine eventually working on that area of the sim is not out of the question in the future but for now it must be.

ATB to you too Mort,

Good News
 
This is obvously good news.

I was involved in reserch and scenario development for Panzer Elite OstPak years ago. Its still on this PC.

I've got TvT and ST but not loaded at the moment as is battlefront's 2 TW. I still play CM and, of course, SH4 with the great German Type IX long range boats.

All the best to you and best of luck !!

I have a soft spot in my heart for Stug's. They were actually quite effective little buggers against the T-34's.

I even read a story about a breakthrough of 6 t-34's and only 2 Panzer III's available! One broke down and the other ambushed and knocked out the lead t-34 by shooting thru its barrel then just hammering away at it until they found it abandoned the next morning with all other T-34's fleeing the scene.

Such is the Fog of war that if the Russians knew what was hitting them they would have rolled right on through.:arrgh!:

Sledgehammer427 11-30-2009 04:46 PM

Zee...that looks...

O_O EPIC!
:yeah:

EDIT: Forgot to add, I was always a crack shot with distance and tank cannons. Can't wait to test my chops on this. You had a customer in me from the second I read Kursk

Yes, the little Sturmgeschutz IIIs were marvelous in battle
and often used in fierce rear guard action as the Germans
were in retreat. It was in the Sturmgeschutz where Michael
Wittmann learned things that often gave him and his crew
the edge once they were transferred to Tigers. Any serious
student of WWII can't ignore them.

Thanks Sledgehammer427 that's fantastic. You'll be able to make some
real long range shoots that most certainly were true to life.
When you consider there was only about 1360 Tiger Es mfg.,
compare that to the number of T34s Mfg. (more then 50000)
is testimony to the fact in the hands of a capable crew they were awesome.

Forwards Kameraden, to Kursk!

The book I was referring to is called Panzer aces of WWII and it is a great read.

It cover six of the most famous Panzer aces and its stories are breathtaking.

Many of the stories are late war super heroic efforts that show how far great training and a great tank can go to stem tremendous odds.

One story comes to mind of a Pantherjeager crew with no support and little ammo that stems a charge from 30+ T-34's! Using hay stacks for cover and switching positions they knocked out on after another throwing the Russian advance into chaos.

Another story that I remember is of a group of Panthers that have their position over run during the night. They awake to find out they are now 8 kilometers behind soviet lines. So they charge into this town that is on the Russian side of the lines and get battered at point blank by anti tank guns and just kept going through the Russian lines with everything the surprised Russians had being thrown at them as drove through or over Russian defenses to drive across a bridge to safety!

Great read.

Nashorn in Action !

The most notable Nashorn ace was platoon commander of 1st company of sPzJagAbt 519, Junior Lieutenant Albert Ernst. He later commanded the 1st company of sPzJagAbt 512 (equipped with Jagdtigers). On December 23rd of 1943, he destroyed some 14 Soviet tanks in a single day using only 21 round of ammunition. The engagement took place near Vitebsk and Albert Ernst received a nickname "Tiger of Vitebsk". In December of 1943, Ernst destroyed total of 19 enemy tanks and on January 22nd of 1944, he was awarded the Knight’s Cross.
It is reported that in early March of 1945, Lieutenant Beckmann from sPzJagAbt 88 destroyed Soviet IS-2 at the range of 4600 meters near Marzdorf.
Some Nashorn crews reported that they were able to knock out Soviet T-34 tanks at distance as great as 4000 meters. Nashorn crews also reported numerous kills of KV and IS-2 tanks as well as SU-152, ISU-122 and ISU-152 assault guns.
Nashorn from 2nd Company of schwere Heeres Panzer Jaeger Abteilung 93 was also responsible for the destruction of the only M26 Pershing, destroyed in Europe. Pershing from the 3rd Armored Division was knocked out at the distance of 250 meters with a single shot. This engagement took place in the town of Niehl, north of Cologne on March 6th of 1945.

I am in awe at those kinds accounts. And I hope to replicate them in the
honor they deserve and all can learn from. Oh, and I got a 35th scale
model of the Nashhorn -- it's going on the list without question :up:
