One would be enough I think, it depends on who shoots first on what spot.
yes a 17 Pdr firefly can kill a tiger 1 at combat range easy, you just got to hope the tiger does not see you first:D Also yea a firefly can knock out a king tiger if it gets the Right shot in. it most be very sneaky:p

I'm really looking forward to this mod. The Western Front with RO game play will be amazing. I just have one question. How will the tanks get onto the beach? Will they spawn on the beach, will there be DD tanks or some kind of landing craft? Just kinda curious.

Just a guess here: the tanks will spawn on boats/movers and be carried to the beach once the crew spawn in the boat as well.

It is certainly possible to have a mover which doesn't move until certain constraints such as "number of actors in area" have been fulfilled.

Tankman - EVERY tank? including 'funnies' like the DD, bridgelayer and the mine-clearer?

Kinda like a Rhino Ferry?

As far as "Hobart's Funnies" go I'd like to see the AVRE in the mod.

I second that we have some awesome models and ideas in mind, but we can do little with them without coders and animators.

We realy want the higgins boat as a new vehicle, so the driver could stear it around the arty on route to the beach. Also we want it to have a working fixed 30cal onboard.

Players would then spawn on the ships out at sea board the craft, this will be by climbing down cargo nets to them or boarding in bays.

Plus if we had some coders, working guns in the bunkers, and even maybe onboard a ship for the first bombardment.

Dog green will be as acurate as we can posibly make it, all the correct obsticles will be there, the correct SIZE of bunkers (not bigass ones that SPR had in the film). I have drawings of the beach with referance sizes so it will be as big as it should be. Cliffs will be between 100-170 feet high and beach is over 250yds to the seawall.

We are also hoping Performance willing to carry on the fight off the beach through Vierville sur Mere. we will see how that goes for now concentrating on getting the beach area correct.

Word of advice, guys: start looking outside the RO community for animators and coders. There aren't too many around and other mods have a tendency to pick them up as quick as they can.

TW itself has only one animator and they sure as hell ain't gonna share him :p and their only coder is Ramm (I think) and he tends to be quite a busy man :D

time to go witch huting with a shotgun, cattle prod and handcuffs, leave no coders behind...

on another note, i dident know we were gonna give the limey americans the sherman firefly. im about 99% sure they dubbed it" a crazy british idea to turn a arty gun on its side and wedge it in a tank" then stupidly continued merrily on their way, while the canucks and brits used the sherman firefly.
