  1. Axis way underpop this morning TZ3. Got up at 5 am to take a look. Axis taking a beating.... One day the game will wake up with zero Axis players. Gonna be a sight....
  2. No no it is NOT He Should whip himself 50 times!
  3. Which is right, the Tiger should stay impenetrable at this stage frontally past 900m and past 1300m for the sides. Rear hits... Well.... Engine dies. But this is a GENEROUS estimate compared to HISTORICAL FACTS: "Should". A report prepared by the Waffenamt-Prüfwesen 1 gave the calculated probability of perforation at range, on which various adversaries would be defeated reliably at a side angle of 30 degrees to the incoming round. The Wa Pruef report estimated that the Tiger's 88 mm gun would be capable of penetrating the differential case of an American M4 Sherman from 2,100 m (1.3 mi) and the turret front from 1,800 m (1.1 mi), but the Tiger's 88 mm gun would not penetrate the upper glacis plate at any range. The M4 Sherman's 75 mm gun would not penetrate the Tiger frontally at any range, and needed to be within 100 m to achieve a side penetration against the 80 mm upper hull superstructure. The Sherman's upgraded 76 mm gun might penetrate the Tiger's driver's front plate from 600 m, the nose from 400 m and the turret front from 700 m.[51] The M3 90 mm cannon used as a towed anti-aircraft and anti-tank gun, and later mounted in the M36 tank destroyer and finally the late-war M26 Pershing, could penetrate the Tiger's front plate at a range of 1,000 m using standard ammunition, and from beyond 2,000 m when using HVAP.[52] Soviet ground trial testing conducted in May 1943 determined that the 8.8 cm KwK 36 gun could pierce the T-34-76 frontal beam nose of 140 mm thickness from 1500 m, and the front hull from 1500 m. A hit to the driver's hatch would force it to collapse inward and break apart.[53][54][f] According to the WaPrüf, the Soviet T-34-85's upper glacis and turret front armour would be defeated between 100 and 1,400 m (0.062 and 0.870 mi), while the T-34's 85 mm gun would penetrate the front of a Tiger between 200 and 500 m (0.12 and 0.31 mi).[51] The 120 mm hull armour of the Soviet IS-2 model 1943 would be defeated between 100 and 300 m (0.062 and 0.186 mi) at the driver's front plate and nose.[51] The IS-2's 122 mm gun could penetrate the Tiger's front armour from between 500 and 1,500 m (0.31 and 0.93 mi).[51] However, according to Steven Zaloga, the IS-2 and Tiger I could each knock the other out in normal combat distances below 1,000 m.[55] At longer ranges, the performance of each respective tank against each other was dependent on the crew and the combat situation.[56] The British Churchill IV would become vulnerable to the Tiger at between 1,100 and 1,700 m (0.68 and 1.06 mi), its strongest point being the nose and its weakest the turret. According to an STT document dated April 1944, it was estimated that the British 17-pounder, as used on the Sherman Firefly, firing its normal APCBC ammunition, would penetrate the turret front and driver's visor plate of the Tiger out to 1,900 yards (1,700 m).[51] When engaging targets, Tiger crews were encouraged to angle the hull position 45 degrees to the Mahlzeit Stellung of 10 ½ or 1 ½ o'clock. This would maximize the effective front hull armour to 180mm and side hull to 140mm, making the Tiger impervious to any Allied gun up to 152 mm.[57][58] Unlike the lighter Panzer IV and Panther tanks, the Tiger's thick side armour gave a degree of confidence of immunity from flank attacks. The tank was also immune to Soviet anti-tank rifle fire to the sides and rear. Its large calibre 8.8 cm provided superior fragmentation and high explosive content over the 7.5 cm KwK 42 gun. Therefore, comparing the Tiger with the Panther, for supporting the infantry and destroying fortifications, the Tiger offered superior firepower. It was also key to dealing with towed anti-tank guns, according to German tank commander Otto Carius:
  4. Good story. Congrats to both Pfmosquito and Kgarner.
  5. So this morning like most morning.... I brew my coffee and sat down, opened the game to check the map and assist the Player Base with my 30 minutes of game play before going to work... Killing a dozen Uglies, Matamor and Zep34... Saving a town by recapping the lost CPs.... Routine. Sipping on my coffee I SUDDENLY found myself between two bushes in a knife to knife combat with a guy I never heard of before.... I get hit.... Die. WHOAAAAT!!!?? I squeeze the handle of my coffee cup.... Coffee spills of my half open mouth... And I fall into a 5 seconds mini depression... O U C H.... I tell Majes99... No support... His answer : "LOL" I HAVE NO FRIENDS :o( The pro side... I know now how the last 100 guys I slaughtered feel now... But man.... Bad way to start my day. Good job Sir! (bast**d)
  6. I believe the mission Leader role helps focus the sometimes small population toward the battle, especially new player who otherwise might end up wandering in Lala towns just shooting at walls or leaving the game for lack of enemies to shoot at.... Just because they were not "guided" toward the main battles. But I like Enemytank's idea of just clicking on a CP and then accessing the spawn list from that. Super simple... So... Dilema… Decisions.... So many ways to setup this game... Got to love it. Kinda unique.
  7. Yes sounds good. To make the add blend in,...
  8. I like the idea of using the towns billboards for advertising. REAL advertising. Coke sign? Orbitz sign? ect…. Changes nothing to the game but brings easy income... Rename some Factories with Sponsor names instead of "Factory 1"? Like MC Donald's burger factory? Get paid for it... Good for all....
  9. Well, to be FAIR (Foreign word) for each Matty we should match the Axis supplies with two 4D and still that is less than what it takes to kill a Matty… Would need about 7 or 8 but I know that wont happen. Matty can sustain about 50-70 hits from 4D. All day. From ALL angles. Now that would be deadly to the rest of Allies tanks so.... Give Allies 2 Mattys… 3 max. Like you do to the Tiger in later Tiers.
  10. CC
  11. "To lift an autumn hair is no sign of great strength; to see the sun and moon is no sign of sharp sight; to hear the noise of thunder is no sign of a quick ear." Greatness is to achieve victory on the enemy while he can field more Tanks that wont die and aircrafts that won't fall.... That's pretty much what it means for us in WW2ol. He just uses the Negative.... Haaaa Poetry......
  12. Great addition of PPOs lately, Now, would it be possible to have the Barbwire { The long one or/and the wooden one} capable to connect with another set. Maybe up to a 3 limit together? Reason behind the thinking is that this great PPO is of little effectiveness alone, but a longer stretch can force a serious and perilous detour on enemy infantry. It would also provide a serious protection for a ZOC made of ATGs and other Inf vulnerable units.
  13. I think a HE satchel destroying a PPO makes sense. So connecting them should also be fine
  14. Mrflimflam, Today your actions in Bouchain, capping SOLO the Valenciennes Spawnable while killing several Uglies were not unnoticed, considering your relatively green tag. Soldier, STEP FORWARD as to receive the Meritorious Service Cross Awarded to individuals for meritorious service in the superior performance of their duties.
  15. A mishaps? …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. Ha Okay.
  16. Great action with FANTASTIC CONSEQUENCES!
  17. Today February 13th... Allies lost something... On the map... It is GONE. WHIPS in the morning went on a FB rampage and took down 17.... 91ST in the evening are taking down all they can take... FB after FB after FB.... Axis HC cannot dream of better teams... BOTH SQUADS are Scorching the Earth and only dead Uglies lay behind.... 91ST and WHIPS squads COs, CT123 and HASTIEN accept FOR YOUR SQUAD The Engineer Award - Awarded to a player or squad who has dedicated their time conducting operations to assault enemy FBs, assault Bridges and sabotage missions behind enemy lines.
  18. Wavre on a dark day.... DESPERATE Defense holds WAVRE against OVERWELHMING enemy supplies and many men answer the call for sacrifice. Someone among our Heroes stands out and keeps the Uglies at bay... MOOK2 MOOK2 Destroys EFMS after EFMS and buys AXIS precious time, denying Allies an easy access to town... Many heroes.... 1 with a slightly bigger impact: MOOK2 STEP FORWARD and receive the Axis Honor Cross Awarded to players and officers that show true Axis honor. These players have proven time and time again they are here for the Axis Side. Commitment and dedication is what they are about. Axis HC holds recipients of this medal in the highest regard.
  19. WAVRE under attack is fighting with 1 versus 3 on supplies... And equipment not even close to match the reality of the time.... YET, AXIS MEN, HEROES with an absolute devotion to their side decide to stay behind and fight literally to the last bullet of the last rifle.... Excellent EFMS hunts, Guarding of all CPs, communication and making every shot count held WAVRE for over 5 hours, 2 of which were mostly rifles.... Aware that no supplies would come as told by their HC, the HEROES of WAVRE never blinked. If they could have thrown the sinks at the invaders they would have done it... I can assure ALL that some of us defended a CP killing EIs with knife only. With a lot of emotion, I am VERY PROUD to deliver most of the defenders the following Medal and apologize for those I couldn't keep track of while fighting myself the EIs to the Death: Order of V-Rab Awarded to a player or officer that accomplishes a set goal set by an operational objective. This award shows the commitment and discipline of the wearer for a job well done.

  20. REDLEGS spent a great deal of time and work to setup an invasion of England that resulted in the successful capture of Dover. Responding to an Allie dare of attacking their tea Island REDLEGS came, bagged, killed, captured. MEDIEVAL STYLE! Latest intel reported the Queen asking Ireland for refugee status.

This medal commemorates the undying efforts put forth by an Axis Officer. Without the efforts of these individuals there would be no Axis HC.
  21. As promised to the AXIS men retaking Bapaume to protect the South flank, taking the bunker would be rewarded.

  24. Today in the never ending back and forth battle for Antwerp South District the Antwerp South Armybase seemed a very unlikely one to take. A NAVAL OP took place with Hastien's Transport, a couple Opels with Eesti and Majes99 and Shagher's PzII... Undercova, Kchip and other Heroes joined the ground fight and Navy Bombardement… Dandare9 with his ATg…. But 1 man... Bigcatmimi took on the bunker.... Alone and capped it!!!! Then guarded it for what looked forever! Shagher's Pzer gunner was Inoperative but the Allies didn't know it... So pure intimidation by the bunker door... Bluffed them out from going in and hurting our NOW FAMOUS BIGCATMIMI! BIGCATMIMI step FORWARD! Receive the Order of V-Rab Awarded to a player or officer that accomplishes a set goal set by an operational objective. This award shows the commitment and discipline of the wearer for a job well done.
