Did it have better armour or a bigger gun?

Pretty equal in performance, though it could carry a few more rounds for the main gun than the StuG 40 iirc.

Interesting, since all the 1944 batch StuG's sent in Finland had the base for the remote controlled MG34 and holes for the nahverteidigungswaffe. This equipment was manufactured in a different factory and due some delay the StuG's were sent to Finland without them. When the StuG's arrived the holes were plugged and, like in earlier StuG's, Russian DT LMG's were installed.

Edit: Interesting fact; Since these StuG's did not have the loader's shield, it was made from, among other things, the lower hull armour of captured or destroyed BT-7 tanks.

Quad .50 looks great, extremely happy to see it.

The StuG model looks awesome, I too am happy to see an unskirted variant.

BUT, I hate that color. Yes I know the Germans used a yellow out of the factory on the IV chassis, but god damn it do I hate it. Not blaming Toddel for it, just wish a different pattern was used.

I need to learn to skin so I can make a decent, dark, 2-3 tone skin for the pair of them. Or something along the lines of the autumn KT(s) where the yellow becomes a background to the overall 3 tones. Much easier on the eyes, and actually useful for hiding.

The thing is, for summer '44 battles there is pretty much only one option for the camo, and that is the yellow factory base coat with green and red camo painted on the field. The "ambush" (the one with dots) appeared towards the autumn and red-brown and green base colours were used in '45.

 Great update and a hearty Welcome to the team Remick,

 With the growth in COOP and SP players lately, your addition will certainly help broaden the playerbase and experiences of FH2 (now to get that guy Drawde officially involved somehow  ;))

 Nice looking models, the Halftrack, AA trailer and Stug will all be one hell of a lot of fun to play with. I must say that Toddel's eye for detail is almost too much for me to handle (the concrete on the Stug mantle looks damn near real to life).

 On another point, why in god's name would  we have Juno beach named statics in the changelog, if they were never to be seen in game?? I think Lobo is hiding from us for a reason and said reason is the mother of all beach landing maps (which IMO will keep FH2 servers singlehandedly populated until the 2020's).

The American Aircraft .50 cal's rate of fire is slow and unrealistic, thus heavily underpowered. It is impossible to strafe with them, or shoot down the impossible cornering Fw 190s.

I agree.

But on the other hand, every 76mm American guns got some overpowered HVAP which eats panther from the front easily. For me it's like a weird compensation to keep the balance but I still want them both work in a correct way. 8)

Ooh and this "BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS"  I hope means that next front is either Eastern or Pacific and not continuation of Western front which I'd personally find extremely boring choice.

for some reason, I've always hated the Eastern front. It's not the Russians, I've always liked to play as one. Same goes for Germans and others who fought at the Eastern front. Maybe it just was too brutal for my mind.

i think i read somewhere someone made calculations on the ratte armor
considering the weight (1000 tonnes) ,measurements of the thing, + weapons that were supposed to be used the armor would have just been like 50mm all around. sure you could cut armor on buttom and add it somewhere else but in total it would have been very weakly armored.
so to get some real armor on that thing you would have to increase the weight alot, almost doubling it to get a real good armor. meaning that thing would be even slower and gooble down even more rescources to produce and even drive.

and yes 1 simple fighter bomber would have been able to blow that thing up if he scores a nice hit.

And wont a few fighter-bombers with rockets simply destroy all weapons topside?
