In front of engines. 

So engines are located in the middle. Like on super-cars ))

Great, can't wait to try it!

 

The product of this collaboration with Digital Forms has been really impressive, I've spent significant time inside all tanks just admiring each one of the stations. The VR experience is really immersive.

There is a ton of attention to detail: You can see the cabin lights from the exterior when looking through the armored glass at night. You can tell de difference between lights on and off.

Several years ago I was yearning for a new-gen ww2 tank simulation. You guys brougth that! Of course and like always, there are some things to get better but I recommend giving it a try. Even if a friend of yours has TC, you can join his tank and enjoy 👍


Thanks guys! I hope to see more work together between 1C and Digital Forms in the future! Can't wait to see the final version of TC!

"The last what we want to tell you about this tank destroyer - its release will complete the lineup of the combat vehicles we planned to recreate together with Digital Forms for the Tank Crew - Clash at Prokhorovka project. This moment will be a very important milestone in the history of our project. It won't mark the end of the work on this project - as usual, we continue to support, improve and deepen all our projects after the official release date. IL-2 Sturmovik and Digital Forms teams hope you'll enjoy the result of our joint effort."

 

Does this mean that we will not see the Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38 that was originally stated to be planned (see DD 195 dated June 22, 2018) ???

I Absolutely can’t wait to drive this tank. Thank you devs and everyone at Digital Forms for all your work. It’s fantastic. I hope that there can be a Tank Crew 2.

Don't have tank battles yet, but due to being in lockdown & not spending much money, it's on my list of to gets.

 

We've land & air, will we get sea?

 

Thinking of the old PT Boats sim that was around a few years back, skimming the waves in an e-boat......

Maybe we can convince them to put the one 'bug' in from the last hotfix, where the howitzers launched cars. Except have the porsche tank fire porsches!

Outstanding work like usual! I do have some questions though, will we ever get updated visuals i.e. decals on the exact point you hit another tank. As it's quite hard to tell where you've hit someone and how much damage you've dealt.

It is an authentic digital craftsman artist work . Please don't forget the campaigns for each of the great steel giants.

Which explains it's lack of reliability and high cost of ownership.

I hope improved path finding and AI will considered at some point TC.

 

$80 USD for a module that is focusing almost purely on MP seems pretty high. I fully understand there is a need for ROI but as a customer that enjoy SP and struggle to find servers in Australia with TC it's expensive.
