LOL Kretschmer. No soup for you.

But it's nice to see the M8, maybe this will lead to the 222? But that probably wont happen until DH2 comes out.

These will be added into some of our current official maps and into the new ones we will be announcing soon.

PS: Does the radio in M8 do anything special?

Maybe. 8)

Keep posted. We will be releasing media on a regular basis, each release more exciting than the last!

My guess is the M8 is going to be used as a mobile artillery base. Perhaps allows the commander inside to mark artillery like in RO. Then able to call it in without getting out of the vehicle as an officer would have to. Just a guess. Looking good.

Why is it the Axis always wants these MONSTER TANKS that barely saw any action. Don't they have enough of an advantage with thwe monsters they have now? Before long they'll be in a rolling 3 foot thick armored 105mm gun that the allies can't penetrate.

I think it's not because advantage but beauty of these rare toys. You get T-34 or Panzer IV in all games. Rare toys are really rare even in games. Some of the toys are bad in efficiency but I would lovely drive them just because how they look. Wondering why Axis want new toys ? Because Germans had lot of weird stuff during IIWW. Allies had some modifications that didn't vary alot from original model, rest didn't have "this". "This"-glitch that make you love German stuff. Take for example bikes. You can take some Russian or US bikes, you can also pick Kettenkrad, who cares Kettenkrad was worse then Allied bikes, when it looks just awesome. Only game I saw Kettengrad in was mod for BF1942 - Forgotten Hope.

No, I am not Axis advocate, I play Allies most of the time lately.

Jumbo was a monster that barely saw action. Though that's by Allied standards. The Allies didn't have monster tanks, so they're not really going to get any in DH.

Yep, the Jumbo is "rarish" but it was more common than other vehicles we replaced in DH also the Sherman M4A3E2 makes things more interesting in game as it is pretty well protected against most German guns keep in mind that there are more things down the pipeline and to answer the unspoken question that does include more Allied items.


Slightly off topic happy birthday Alvin Fuchs.

Aw shucks, thanks.


I am really pleased that an official Jumbo is in, it'll make a great infantry support tank. I personally don't like the plethora of rare Axis tanks either, so I'm not totally against you, Raoul.
