British Sappers Flamethrower Cost

Why does the flamethrower upgrade for the British Sappers cost 65 munition? Is the British flamethrower different from the US Engineers or German Pioneer flamethrower, which both cost 45 munition?

Jeep / Schwimmwagen Transport Capacity

Recently, the US Ranger Captain and Wehrmacht Propaganda Volksturm Officer had their squad size increased to 3 people instead of just the officer alone by himself. I think it may have been overlooked that the increased squad size now prevents the officer from boarding a Jeep or Schwimmwagen as a tra...

Re: Sherman 76mm vs Easy Eight

Since E8s vs 76 Shermans are being discussed in the other forum, I am curious if Warhawks and Wald believe the E8 is "worth" the additional price. The E8 requires the HVSS Chassis unlock for 25 Fuel, and then each E8 also costs 7 more Fuel and 20 more MP compared to a regular Sherman 76(W). So in to...

Re: Halftracks and Light vehicle fuel cost

I would like to add that the light vehicle prices become very difficult to justify for U.S. Armor doc after the "cheaper Shermans" CP ability is unlocked. Price of M4 Sherman: 350 MP and 30 Fuel Price of M15A1 Gun Halftrack: 375 MP and 30 Fuel (after tank depot upgraded production, becomes 345 MP an...

Wehrmacht Base MG vs Halftrack

The Wehrmacht defensive doctrine's base defense MG42s (the ones that are on the top of the base buildings after the upgrade) appear to be bugged when shooting at infantry that are inside a halftrack or Kangaroo. The infantry inside the vehicle will die almost instantly; faster than they would die if...

Re: Stug IV late version

The StuG IV late version has a remote-control MG42, which means that the gunner cannot be killed. The MG42 may be more inaccurate because of this though, but I have not seen the stats.

Sherman 76mm vs Easy Eight

Can someone explain the difference between the regular Sherman M4A3 76mm and the M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" Sherman? After unlocking the "cheaper Shermans" upgrade in the commander points tree of armor doc, the difference in price between these two units is only 7 fuel and 20 manpower. What makes the Easy ...

In your opinion, is there ever any reason to produce the 76mm Shermans? Are the cheap Easy Eights with all of the sandbags and free veterancy still bad?

Re: Brit AT insight

How much of the current British strategy and play style would change if they could build 6-pounder AT guns from the 2nd truck? The 6-pounder is almost the same as the American 57mm AT gun. Right now there's the difficult scenario for British in the phase between Boys and the 17 Pounder. Everyone els...

Re: Rapid Sniper Shots

What is the health and damage of snipers? Do some snipers have more health than other snipers? Does the RAF sniper having 140 health mean he can survive a shot from a Wehrmacht sniper? Also, for those of you who know the statistics, is using the "rapid fire" ability actually worth it? Does...

Re: Inf doc is the weakest?

I always liked that other mods implemented an 'armored infantry' squad that came in on a halftrack with a manned turret. Very historically accurate but it's a stretch to say how much more capable they could be compared to a normal rifle squad. Is this a suggestion of replacing the weak and flimsy &...

Re: Inf doc is the weakest?

What do you think about the Ranger Infiltration Squad? It costs 400 manpower from the Ranger Truck, and one squad comes inside the truck when you call it in. They get 5 Thompsons and a bazooka by default, and are probably the most elite unit that Infantry Doc has. But the Ranger Infiltration Squad c...

Re: Inf doc is the weakest?

I will say here that Inf Doc was specifically nerfed in previous patches because people thought it was too good. Some of these nerfs were: - After mass production upgrade, the Rangers previously cost 270 MP. Now they are 315 MP - The option to upgrade the anti tank bazooka squad with a 3rd bazooka w...

Re: PIATs?

I agree, the PIAT is a really bad weapon. But it was also a really bad weapon in real life too, so you have to take that into account. In fact, the British replaced their PIATs with American bazookas after the war. It's also important to note that development of PIAT-style weapons ended after WW2, a...
