This is very appetizing! Hell's Bells!



The fascinating "real life" story and map can be found in Raus' memoirs. [SIZE=-1]A battery of 50mm AT guns, 88's, 105's, even engineers with explosives could not knock out the crew - only the track. :p

It is also available [SIZE=-1]on-line from CARL.

DAMN YOU AKTIONMAN!!! Give away all the "secrets" with that CARL link! ;)

That is one fantastic document and I have read it a number of times. There are dozens of potential scenarios in there and a few more that I would like to do. Worthwhile read for any one with interest in the war and "how" it was sometimes fought. The photo link is great as well, something like 12-15 images of that KV, a couple in color. I used what I could from them to get the immediate area duplicated. We shall see how it plays.

Distribution: Floppy disk. 13 2.5" floppy disks will be mailed to you via the highly dependable United States Postal Service. For only $19.95 you get not only 13 disks, but a fancy mailer. But wait, there's more: you also get all the vehicles shown in the movie PLUS two NEW maps, and three updates! All that for $24.95. And if you act now, we will send you this entire package for only $29.95! That's right, pre-order for only $34.95 and you'll have this great deal for less than fifty dollars, hurry and order now for $49.95!!

Kidding...couldn't help it. I will do my best to get mirrors loaded for Friday. Out of the gate, you will find the package on the "Meatgrinder", and on the "Wild Bunch" admined servers. Other links will be posted. There is still a ton of work to do, so off to finish up! Thanks to everyone for the interest.

HUGE thanks to the crew at TWI for their support and encouragement!

Yeah when i frst read that was when I started doing my own KV-1 model, but I ended up never completing it, so I'm very happy the minionworks guys got it in game :] That thing is prime example of some of the crazy stuff that was developed in the intra-war period.

To bad there were only a few Eastern-Front engagements that had them KV-1, but there's always room for hypothetical engagements :]

Played yesterday on the After Hours server and have to report there's a few bugs.

For one when you turn out of the KV-2 turret you can actually see through the body of the tank, you look down and into the hatch and you can see through to the ground. It also seems to reload really fast, and also CP rounds were bouncing off the front of PIII's at under 100m range when I was playing :confused:

Also on every SD map we played the spawns would randomly get broken so you'd have Russians spawning in the German spawn amongst Germans.

A "Known Issues Log" will be posted shortly. Nothing vehicle oriented is news to us at this point. The issues with the KV2 are being stated by a few, there are reasons why things are as they "are", within the base game code, which we did not create/alter. More later...soon...anyway.
