1-so that you can attract that particular audience?
-Yeah we want aaaaLL the brothers from the hOod playing Bk mod
, yes but no... (i just hallucinated reading that...) we simply just love that Black Panther Sherman black stripes skin and i never thought someone will raise the race here starting very quietly with the so called faulty texture of the tank machine gunner.
2-If it is intended to have the Black Panther Battalion represented, then many if not all US soldiers would need to be replaced with black soldiers since they only served in all black units.
So the overall picture is not correct.
-Who CARES! who CARES? again the race talk is back, irrelevant in Bk. (not going to copy/paste the blue eye talk its also very silly, and full of nonsenses)
3-I assume that since you are so committed to diversity, that all possible efforts will be made to expand diversity to the Wehrmacht and Panzer Elite. It hardly seems fair to leave them out.
Based on the photo I posted, I would think you would be very eager to liven up the Volksgrenadier and Grenadier squads with some new faces in 5.1.6.
-Like i told you before you went into your wall text about the race, the Sherman M4a3 (76)W is the unit here, not the gunner we aren't talking "diversity" as you're glued currently on it.
4-But if you're so concerned with the men from the Black Panther btn, they why are you so unconcerned with the African and Asian soldiers of the Wehrmacht?
-Again, there is no more about the texture of the gunner model here, its about "again" the race.
5-My point is that the mod is unwisely wadding into political correctness for the sake of a single model. It's distorting what the real forces looked like for the overwhelmingly majority (90%+, more for combat forces)
with the balance separated into specific units.
-Same thing, the race is exposed here, not the model, all that is irrelevant to Bk.
6-There were Asian soldiers fighting for the Wehrmacht in and around Normandy. Similarly, there were African soldiers in the US Army, but just like those Asian soldiers, they were a very small minority
(African-Americans were ~10% of the US population at the time) and placed into separate units. Is it so wrong that I think the mod should avoid the politics of that,
as Relic wisely decided to do in both Company Of Heroes 1 and 2?
-Sure, again the race is the main point here, its like saying, <<im not racist, BUT...>>
The "Black Panther" Sherman M4a3 (76)W stay, with his Battalion skin color, and his black gunner, regarding your question about my political "sensibility" im also not from the "far left wing" and served my country in the airborne infantry for surely more of the age you should have now, paratroopers aren't really famous for being lefties, or political at all actually, so nope, im not a lefty, but im not a racist either.
The gunner is very well made, as we the team choose always the best for the mod, we have much more uglier model faces displayed in COH than this gunner dude, and we aren't certainly not the first mod to introduce a black gunner as some mods have also north African troops displayed like in Battle of the Bulge mod, so... again who cares? maybe you, but it won't change a thing on the fact that this entire model, Sherman 76mm + Black gunner will stay in game even if you are like it or not.
*I also need to warn a particular person here who posted a racist comment i immediately removed, he will recognized himself for sure, this is a free warning mate, next time you're out of this forum.
This case about the Sherman M4a3 76mm is CLOSED
