Are there plans to expand this to US/German Campaigns?

Recommended Posts

 Or other theaters of war?

 

 I have been dreaming about someone creating a quality tank sim for years, I used to play M1 Tank Platoon way back in the DX2 80mhz days and after that Armored Fist. The new computer technology is screaming for a top quality tank sim!! 

 

(sorry if this has been asked before, did a search.)

 

thanks

Hello,

 

I don't think anything has been formally announced.  Any expansions for the Tank Crew concept would likely depend on Tank Crew's financial success as a module (i.e. buying and promoting Tank Crew would aid the chances of that happening).  That said, the groundwork for a detailed armor sim is being laid for Tank Crew and it is already pretty awesome in its alpha form, at the moment.  This concept has massive potential and I know some of the non-IL-2 community that supports games like Steel Fury are watching Tank Crew's development closely.   The Battle of Bodenplatte module offers some very interesting ramifications towards potential future tank crew projects, since American, British and late-war German vehicles will need to be modeled for that module anyways as part of the assets of that theatre.  Once the framework for tank combat is well in place, it may be relatively straight-forward to adapt those assets into a smaller-scale Western front armor module (100km X 100km Ardennes - Battle of the Bulge would be the natural choice, IMHO).  I guess we'll see.

 

Cheers,

That was my thought as well!  Tank Crew will ship with a version of the Sherman for you to get your US tanking jollies out while we wait for future theatres.  :) I'm sure the community will produce many US skins for the Tank Crew Sherman (there are already a ton of custom skins for the Tiger I and KV-1).

 

Panzer Vor!

I hear a super dope Stug III G collector tank will be released. It was the most produced German AFV of the war after all.

I imagine that this tank crew wasnt intended to be a one-off project. If its successful they should plan for further installments. A 44-45 western front scenario would make a lot of sense and fit well with Bodenplatte, though another Russian front would also be likely.

There are just so few tank simulation "games" that are fun anymore. There were a few back in the 80's 90's that were a lot of fun.  This is a great opportunity to mix super detail AND some great recreated WWII battles.

 

 I love the planes they create, I hope they stick with the tanks as well and keep this project growing.

 

Happy New Year!!

The sequel should be ... The Battle of the Ardennes or Bulge.

It would match BOBp

What tanks should include?

Köningstiger and ....?

My idea for for West Front 44-45
 

Battle of Normandy mainly focusing on the British forces which faced 85% of the German armor in this period
M4 Sherman (75mm standard with 17 pdr as a mod)                     Tiger II P

M10 (with 17 pdr as a mod)                                                                  Stug III G

Cromwell V                                                                                               Panther A

Churchill VII                                                                                              Panzer IV H

M4A1 76W Sherman                                                                              Marder I or III

 

Tiger I currently ingame can be have an upgrade to represent Tiger I in Normandy (new copula, mantlet etc)

 

Battle of the Bulge focusing mainly on the Americans and not just Battle of the Bulge itself but also crossing of the Rhine (like how Bodenplatte represents a longer period)

M4A3 Sherman (gonna need both 75 and 76mm turrets tbh)         Tiger II H
M4A3E2 Jumbo Sherman (with the 76mm as a mod)                      Jagdpanzer IV

M18 Hellcat                                                                                              Jagdtiger

M36 Jackson                                                                                            Panther G
Comet or Pershing                                                                                   Jagdpanzer 38t

Battle of Brody would be my vote. I'm not really interested in western front stuff. Though africa corps might be interesting.
