Hanzel und Gretyl "Liederhosen macht drie" or in other word liederhosen traveling at mach 3, dangerous shite right thar. Mostly new age metal (disturbed, dream theater etc), industrial (Rammstein, Hanzel und gretyl, kovenant) , and fastcore electro of the sort (like drum and bass, look up Pendulum, Blood Sugar, anyone will like that!). Have not seen anything that versed has posted that I do not like ^^

Microing stg44 panzer grens does it for me, what I mean is not stay mobile just never stop it is the best way to avoid any kind of arty. One example, I had 4 STGs and 2 schrecks in 2 equal control groups send one around each side while keeping dispersal with a mortar to keep any MGs off your back, . You need to be decisive and aggressive even to the point where your opponent thinks you will waltz into a trap baited by said mortar and then you know another point in the line is under powered. Kill them enough and they will notice the massive manpower drain. I often only get them only in the beginning to essentially cause brick shitting and break newb city defenses.

Then tanks cannot shoot as far as AT guns lol? the opposite should be true as tanks often had superior optics if the AT guns had them at all

Yes, if it survives more than a few seconds. Anything CoH labels as "anti tank" could kill the t35 with utter ease and I would not be surprised to see one get split stem to stern by a FlaK 36.

Mortars+Conscript charge=Highest friendly fire score

CoH has v1s which could not hit the broadside of London (much less a barn) and yet again the all mighty controller of physics and history know as Relic put it in there and you want to know something kinda funny? The Schwerer Gustav's HE shell contained LESS explosives than a V1 and the V1 used more powerful explosives on account of the fact it did not have to withstand being fired supersonic out of a cannon. Only fired 60 something 80cm shells were fired in combat while tens of thousands of v1s were launched.

Also to say the Maus was "uncommon" is a HUGE freaking understatement as there was never a complete model until the Soviets showed up and put the completed turret of #2 on the dummy turreted #1.

Then... good god the Ratte and the Monster?? are you super serial? Like Al gore serial? Those things never got finished on the goddamn drawing board much less even built. On top of that no one (or at least me) is really saying the other ideas (i.e t35) are unrealistic just completely useless tactically and would not benefit the game in any way shape or form...

P.S. Chemical weapons uses were theoretical at best and both sides did not want to use them in fear of retaliation in kind. The only confirmed exposures to chemical weapons were in the death camps and a American store of Mustard gas (for use if Germany used any) that was accidentally released when the storage ship was bombed. Another note is the fact that Hitler never wanted to use chemical weapons (even once the "1000 year Reich" was obviously doomed) because he did not want anyone, especially his own troops in retaliation, to suffer in the ways he witnessed during his service in WWI.

Please excuse any language you may find offensive, it is only used to convey frustration.

I love how COH nerfs stugs even though they used a gun with near identical statistics as that of the P4 long guns

1. Recrewing is not an option
2. Reinforcing  is expensive
3. 1+2 killing a good amount of one of these mortars (say 3) will most likely completely cripple the owners defensive strategy and resources to replace.
4. Keep moving and you will be fine
5. Nebelwerfers anyone? Out of range typically or stukas to fire and move to avoid counter battery
6. Pak38 camo is wonderful once things have died down sneak into a new firing slot

One thing though is axis mortars have no chance 1 on 1 or even 2 on 1 with the large crew which will most likely survive a hit and counter battery. Also with their range being smaller even more so on the PE half tracks it can be a problem.

well axis until 44 because that's when Russia FINALLY ate them, took them long enough... Will the loss of the great modeler mrscruff greatly hinder efforts? Sounds like he did 90% of the vehicle models.

Spain should not be considered they were a neutral country and making the ostheer all foreign based would be silly, it should be one doctrine if at all.

IRL but COH thinks otherwise, and the t28 was never really "solved" it had less armor than anything that was considered a tank i can think of produced during the war, 30mm to a Stuart's 50mm 0_0... It would be cool but would die instantaneously and would be a SOB to code. I think a flame tank of some sort is the best idea.

Upped Pgrens with stgs rape 2 even with the strafes you just keep switching directions and sprinting and they always miss along with some incendiary nades to corral them. Any way why is the Wespe 900 mp?? just why??? everyone here has a obsession with it and it was a smaller caliber than the Hummel at 10.5cm instead of 15cm and they are only 650mp... There is actually a model for a panzerwerfer 42 in existence in case you did not know and also why is 2 pIIIs as expensive as 2 panthers? if you are going to do it that way make them special, not something you can normally like the a J1 to M version which had better guns, more armor and some schuzen skirts. So an PIII L (50mm more armor) that can take schuzen and mg42? Or an M that already has the schuzen and maybe even its wading gear represent increased speed in marsh, like the schwimwagen. Either way 1000 is to much to replace 40 fuel and 75 muni with 300mp when the PE gets panthers that actually defy the replacement logic with 1000mp that subtracts 200 odd mp AND 280 freaking fuel. Even with "only" 5 CPs to get there the allies could already be pulling tank rider 34s and churchills and both would be a close match to what you describe, a little less so for the 34 but it is cheaper and the churchill will have flank support by the time you get there for sure.

Another one that gets me is the PE grens say along the lines of "group up into schutzen hoodle(?) whats that last word I think the first word is the german way of saying shooter or rifleman.
