Yep, that certainly does answer that then!

Gotcha, I stand corrected there.  Still, that makes it even more interesting if they are surrendering, or if those are actually British POWs talking with them on friendly terms?

Are these two guys Brits?

No idea, Germans are from Sturmpanzer-Abteilung 216 on enroute to Anzio bridgehead (February '44).


As I said above, they are brits, so these guys are definitely surrendering.  I don't really see this being Anzio, unless you have proof to back that up.

Yeah, these are surrendering Germans.  LIkely Ruhr Pocket mass-surrender time period- the Germans drove their tanks up to surrender all their equipment and such.

That is one damn lucky Pz2 crew though.

Huh, didn't know they lend-leased Shermans to the Soviets. Did the Soviets like the tank?

Roughly, yeah.  Not the best armour, good gun, and especially liked the actual reliability/construction/crew comforts

I mean, if you've capped all the flags/are about to, and all that is left is the ABC line, what else do you do.

This would be very cool and would make tanking very different in-game. I've read stories of tank crews being confused, or having to fall back while being pummeled by things that didn't penetrate their tank. (like a 20mm flak against a Cromwell)

right now the only thing that does this in-game (unintentionally) is shooting a bofors at a tank. the big black puff is almost like suppression. as a matter of fact, it's sometimes a problem for me as a tanker to encounter a bofors. I've actually had to fall back a few times to get my situational awareness back.

It is more than likely that a few times, that has been me shooting at you for that exact effect.

And yeah, I wouldn't be against more suppression.  I've even seen accounts of 20mm cannon forcing T-34 crews to surrender, with blood pouring out of their ear canals and such, due to the concussion of the repeated explosions.

FH2 is anything but going "it doesn't really matter."

That said, that part would not be covered by the hand anyways- the hand would be gripping the middle way above the ribs.

Wait, are you referring to the sight hood?  The reason the late-war maps have that is because the sight hood was introduced in ~1943 to protect the front sight.  It literally did not exist prior to 1943.

It's a lot of work for not a lot of reward.  The average combat distance in FH2 is 100-200 yards, and the max fog distance on any map is, IIRC, 400 yards.  So even if it was ingame, it adds almost nothing that just quickly raising your aim doesn't already do with a lot less work, AND a lot less time spent as a player fiddling with variable range settings.

That's not even a normal Panzer III, that's a Panzer III Beobachter tank- used for artillery observation.   It has a dummy cannon and the center position on the mantlet just as a spot for an MG34.

Why are the photographs from SA-Kuva always such high-resolution?  Was Finnish camera technology vastly superior or were the army photographers just very well equipped?

I am interested in what model/type of camera was used to take those photographs.

It's just because most images on the web are heavily copy pasted, compressed, decompressed, re-compressed, etc.  SA-Kuva is the official Finnish archive, so they are professionally done.  Bundesarchiv is similar- very very high-resolution pictures.
