I just hope it will be raining or at least very muddy/wet feel to it, as the real Prok happened in scattered rain storms.

Eep, just noticed that Kelmola did miss out on the Panzer IIIs!  Yes, we would def need at least a couple L's or M's on the map.  Here btw, is the actual listing of tanks available for the Germans at Prok on July 10th:

Pz III: 11
Pz IV: 42
Pz VI Tiger: 4
Marder III: 20
StuG III: 20
Pz I: 2
Pz II: 4

So I'd say maybe this:

1x Tiger
2x Panzer III
3x Panzer IV
2x Marder III
2x Stug III
1x Panzer II

So that's 12 german tanks against

7x T-34/76
4x T-70
1x KV-1/1942
2x Churchill
1x SU-76
1x SU-122

A total of 16 Russian tanks.  Maybe should up it to 8 T-34, 2 Su76, and 5 T-70, thus making it 19 russian tanks.

Did you think of the angle mod while making this set up? Russians will pwn Germans and they won't even notice. Considering Sherman 75mm deflecting Tiger shots now, I wonder how Germans will manage to destroy 8 T-34s with one Tiger. Other tanks already have difficulties against that.

I think the tank numbers should be even, if you keep giving Germans Pz IIIs and IVs.
- It's still up!
- No it ain't.

Perhaps for recon. I think Pz I should be added later on the game. Would be cool to have some MG tank, like Vickers for the Brits

Pz.Kpfw I... All right, one PTRS round to the turret and it's goodbye, tin can. ONLY good for very early war maps (polish, french, some NA) We'll sooner see a Panzer 38 (t) than a I

That could be imported from FH 1. I think we'll see that in the future.

I doubt it is as easy as just importing everything form FH1, or has the FH1 Panzer 38(t) modell the Sh2 ready sign?

It´s pretty pointless to talk about the setup of tanks rigth now. We don´t know whether we will get a proper tank system in the next patch. If it turns out to be the retarded crap we have atm, where Shermans are nearly the equivalent of a Panther, Germans need a similar number of tanks as the Russians - and that´s bullshit.

Just fix the tanking to resemble anything even slightly plausible. Give German tanks the advantage in firepower and give Soviets more tanks. If the German 75mms struggle versus T-34s also - I´m out of this mod.

Also keep in mind that the only server that´s online atm. is the 128 player server (with about 100 players online every evening). If possible the layout should consider that amount of players, when adding tanks.

All I´m saying is that it´s hardly possible to set up the number of tanks if we don´t know how the tank system is going to work.
