They said that would not and were fairly clear about that point....

Salutations,

 

I doubt we will see full blown infantry deployments. More likely, specific infantry units. Bazooka like teams, entrenched positions, mortor units, etc.

 

It will be better than nothing. :salute:

There is a mod for that

Its not super polished and rough around the edgest, but its pretty neat.

 

It does require you to make missions with it though.  It does not just add it to the game.  Just a script that you can utilize in the mission editor

It has been confirmed by Jason. Infantry elements will be added for Tank Crew! 

 

Player controlled AAA vehicle is going to be developed!

Interview

 

For infantry information, check out the second half of the interview about 1:10 in. :coffee:

The only thing better than having infantry running around in Tank Crew will be having infantry running around on the ground in all areas of the simulation.  What atmospheric environment might be created by this addition has tremendous potential to enhance the entire experience.  This is going to be fun!

It might just amount to a few machine gun nests or something... but I do hope they manage to spawn and unspawn infantry in a somewhat plausible way.

 

I remember the infantry in Gunship! were just sprites... but watching them appear from an APC or a building made me very nervous (MANPADS vs. helicopters in that case).

This should be added on top of whole Tank Crew thread with marking "BREAKING NEWS".

Would be nice if you could skin these fellers too, and a programmable on/off road column of refugees could be also adding realism in other IL2 environments like Stalingrad ..

Due to development and gameplay considerations we have decided to create a separate AAA vehicles add-on featuring the GAZ-MM + 72K and Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38. We will prepare them as a separate product to be released later and work to make them a more interesting addition to IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles then initially planned.

Yep, player controlled other vehicles would be a great plus. Drive a Willys or GMC truck dodging tanks would add quite some game fun.

Uh, a pantzerfaust for the infantry? Pity bazookas were invented just after the war in 1945; would be a nice ad-on for the infantry too.

Any way in a tank battle the latter often played an important role.

The bazooka went into service in 1942.

At rifles and anti tank grenades. Minefields. Hochaflodung magnetic at grenade bundles. Satchel charges, molatovs for the engine deck. You will need panzer grenadiers for that lot.

 

suppression will have to be a major thing. It’s gonna be good.

If they come out with something revolutionary like realistically depicting close quarters infantry tank ambushes in towns and as a last resort they crawled all over your tank and tried to open the hatches or shoot through the slits. That would be an amazing experience. But I am going to be happy if we at least get some infantry trotting along side us to fight each other.

This game claims to be able to produce a realistic tank simulator. By definition it must aspire to simulate the battlefield that the tank commonly participated in. 

I realise that their are limitations because it is primarily a Flight Sim engine, but as soon as they sold a tank sim for $100 they committed pretty heavily to delivering a full product. No t a side show.

Infantery units like in panzer44 game should be fully possible at least maybe even steel fury but that is a big wish. Having infantery climb on your tank and such: not even the AAA games can make that happen unless scriped sequences or for cutscenes as that type of AI and behaviour dont exist in gaming yet.

Just dreaming big :) 

There is a mod for steel fury that has tank riders... also check the guys bouncing in and out of fox holes.

Yeah. Exactly. For some reason spellcheck did not know about that word :)

We will have to get the zimmerate paste out eh. And the shurtzen for the HEAT rounds and AT rifles. I doublt shurtzen are properly modeled judging by the random models that have them and do not.

Actually I was just watching the "battle of sevastopol" about a Russian Female Sniper with 300 kills on amazon prime. It had AT sniper bullets that she was told to use on the drivers glass of German tanks, her first shot shattered the glass and the second killed the driver. Seems a bit far fetched. But could it be true?
