Battlefield 1942 had a cool "secret weapons" expansion. I can see that working for company of heroes. also, not all of the weapons would necessarily be "secret", some could just be "experimental" units, like the American M6 tank.

T-28 could be a US Jagdtiger, or a super heavy tank destroyer but only 2 were made.

I could have sworn that this topic was about Tigers...

Back on Topic, I don't see the harm in making Tigers a call-in unit, sorta like the Panther Battle Group,

1) Do something... build every building or whatever
2) Pay 500MP, 100Muni, 80Fuel, or whatever
3) 900MP, call-in, up to two tigers on the field,

see....simple

PS, If your opponent has 2 tigers on the field, that means they invested 1800Mp, and what have you been doing all this time?

Considerably, it depends on the player.

Considerably, it depends on how aggressive the opponent was/is.

Considerably, it's your territory that counts.

(Not to mention if there is an Instant MP ability like Blitzkrieg)

Considering all factors, the player could be trying to defend his own ass from tanks the opponent built ages ago.

You know often I use a similar strategy. I send in a couple of StuGs that I've had for about 4 minutes just waiting for true deployment, in the mean time I'm making Panzers/Panthers or Doctrinal Tigers.

It catches the opponent by surprise.

Are the Devs even going to listen to this topic, even though 'Yes' is at 48, its their final call.

judging by the polls you would think that Tigers would be buildable.

AGREE with Paciat! Soviet Union can build IS-2 , i like to see buildable Tigers for Ostheer even one Tiger cost 800 manpower , 150 fuel or 180 and 14 or 16 population per Tiger.

NO, NO, NO! The Tiger is MAGIIIIC!!! :o
 :D
But, seriously, it would ruin my day to see a Tiger coming out of a factory.
But i'm fine with it being buildable independent of doctrine, as long as it in the end comes from off-map. I also think they should do the same with IS-2, but then again... devs choice.

We read a lot of all this stuff here.
BUT we wont and couldnt answer to all your stuff here.
When devs would answer everything or would comment
the stuff they would have so much to do that they wont
have time to work on their project ;)

So. U guys could discuss here, devs will read here and at the end devs and community will see what will happen out of all this input!!
May the force be with you.
