Darkest Hour Update March 3 2009


With another weekly update, the DH team seem to be well on track... this time they are showcasing 2 new maps for us. The first up is DH-Carentan, made famous in "Band of Brothers", featuring the attack on the town on June 11th 1944 by the US 101st Airborne, trying to dislodge their German counterparts - Fallschirmjager Regiment 6 under Lt-Col von der Heydte. The second of the pair is DH-Stoumont, in Schutze Sepp

They mention in the update that careful use of the Tiger II needs to be used because of American bazooka teams. How effective was a bazooka against one of those even at close range?

Nice update though can't wait until this thing releases hopefully soon.

US Bazooka M9 was effective on 100-120mm armor up to 100 meters range. Easily enough to penetrate the side of the KT's turret or the rear plating (into the engine compartment)...as Nestor said, rather uncomfortable with all of that molten metal shooting around and all.
