No conditional weapons. Our best bet is to create specific versions of armor for each EF faction and their units instead of using the ones from vCoH/OF. I know its a lot of work, but it is the only way, no modifying the original factions.

not sure i get what you mean there? i wasn't suggesting modifying any original factions simply allowing access for OST to face up against the brits on a fair basis.
I got a chance to study this a bit more closely last night as my friend was not on form, it may actually be a bug but i will watch the replay again when i get time, roughly though, i had two panzer 3s(with 50mm upgrade) shooting this avre(not hulled down) up the ass with barely any effect.

Well panzer 3s even with their barrel upgrade are only an improvement to penetration, and the churchill is known for its tough armor and for being a unit to soak up damage. Most likley would have been luck. I've seen times when bazooka shells bounced off the rear end of a king tiger.

Wait, I think that the panzer 3 with the 50mm might have the same or atleast similar penetration to the american bazooka. Maybe we could use that as a rough comparison?

They already do (with the only exceptions being elite armour, but that armourtype is spread around both allied and axis factions, and shared vehicle armours like pIV, Tiger, Panther).

Abuse is abuse and has to go.

ok here is a link to the last game, action with avres starts at about 18min left and right midscreen, had he not been wasted and waited five mins to back the LH side one up with a  firefly there would have been nothing i could have done.
