M4A2 'Charmer' 13/18th Royal Hussars, Normandy 1944


Recommended Posts

I use a simple trackball which is the same as using a mouse. The important thing for doing skins is software capable of handling dds files and layers. I use photoshop but gimp will also do the job. I would like a graphics pen but it really does not add that much as there are plenty of tools, brushes etc in the painting package that will do the same job plus much more.

Some history :umnik2:

 

10 June 1944

M4A2, Sherman Mk III "Cameo" (T146946) tank crew of 2nd Troop, 'C' Squadron, 13th-18th Royal Hussars, 27th Armoured Brigade rest and write letters home by the side of their vehicle, Normandy.

The 27th Brigade landed at Sword Beach as part of XXX Corps and fought in the Caen area until disbanded on 30 July 1944. They supported the British Commandos’ breakout from the Normandy Landings. Later supported the British Paratroopers at Breville.

On 11 June a squadron of 13/18th Hussars supported 6th Airborne Division's attacks along the river, and later in the month the regiment supported 51st (Highland) Infantry Division in further attacks along the river. On 8 & 9 July, 27th Armoured Bde supported I Corps' final successful attack on Caen.

Excellent work on the skins in this community...!

 

1. I actually downloaded 6 skins but only one of them appeared at playable.  The others didn't show up...  I didn't use or dl the JGME mod (I think thats what it's called)... Should I be using that?

 

2.  Also do we have an ETA for the modded "official skins" to be released via a patch...?
