Request: Flakpanzers - Mobile Anti Air Units

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It would recommend when Tank Crew (especially Online wars) will fully commence, we'd have player controlled SPAA (Self Propelled Anti Air Artillery) Panzer and Half-track units on both sides.
(I don't see reason why not in single player campaign there wouldn't be available these AI-controlled units also.)

I am sure Russians and Western Allies had similar units too. Unfortunately I am not too familiar with their SPAA types.

Would you care to elaborate what's been planned and when we could have some official info on this?

- GAZ-MM + 72K

- Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38

The flak units are now going to be separate purchases however.

I thought those would be included in TC, especially for those of us who bought TC early, but it is what it is.

 

Curious to see what the price will be,

Just drive your tanks to the enemy base, park on the runway and shoot them as they taxi.

We did that in a regular server with the old original tanks once.  The 76mm gun makes a right mess of a Bf110.

I don't even know how I'd react to such a thing.

We had the same situation for the Bf 109-6, being the most produced 109 series yet released as a collector aircraft.

How did I react? I had it in my virtual hanger from day one as it is one of my favorite 109's.

The Stug III will probably be treated the same way and again I will buy from day one, as it is my favorite German AFV.😍

Now we need self-propelled Flak and 122mm cannon against Tiger.

I do hope that we never see that bloody Wirbelwind :negative: . There was only ever about 100 made but that didn't stop them from appearing all over the place in Il-2 '46 online. One of the buggers shot my Il-2 down from about 5km away - I never even knew it was there until I looked at the track later. I approve of more realistic player-controlled AAA though :good:. Cheers.

Let's keep it realistic.  Mobelwagon, Wirblewind, and Ostwind where developed a year AFTER the Battle of Kursk. Let's try and keep the game fun, but historically accurate.

Wirbelwind production was estimated total 87 to 105... Introduced summer 44. 

 

Any info where/how they were deployed? 

 

Cheers, Dakpilot

It was planned but later devs removed them. Don't remember reason, i think they wanted to make more detailed expansion with more AAA later but i am not sure. Shame they did not replace them with 2 more armored vehicles. Stug 3 and for russians SU-76 maybe. Really should be in game. Probably later they realised making playable vehicles is harder and more time consuming i guess, but who knows.

Realistically they should only be where they were deployed, however AA was a part of the war early on and should be in the game. 

Online capture the flag scenario should just open up for all the goodies.

against aircraft, these vehicles were fomidable. But they were mincemeat for other tanks.
