Why shouldn't it be 1s1k for Zooka?

StugIV is really akin to StugIII, scale, weight, thickness of armor.
Therefore, I think the same HP is proper.

sorry for my poor english.thanks

One of my favourite maps and it gets even better!
I only hope we don´t get back to those crappy times when Panthers were 1 shot by everything frontally with the introduction of 105mm Shermans. From what I can gather the 105mm M4 L/22.5 had 93mm armour penetration at 500 metres with HEAT. Not enough to finish a Panther reliably. There are hellcats and a M10 (not to forget the aircraft) on the map for that purpose. With better armoured Shermans I hope we don´t see a total change of tank balance/ german tanks losing their usefullness again. I liked the tank combat on cobra.

The sherman 105 dint needed penetration

Remeber the thermos bomb? Thats 800 gram of TNT and it was very effective against Panzers III and IV

Now the 105mm M2 howitzer had a bursting charge of 2.2 KG of wich 50% TNT and 50% amatol wich is also more powerfull. This alone should pretty damage any tank. Not saying 1S1K(thats reserved for zveroboy and Brummbar!)

As for the HEAT shell it was 102mm penetration.

There is not much to see, same model as normal M4A3, just slightly different gun.

Just a little clarification because this has led to some misunderstandings over at Forgotten Honor:
The German at rifle grenade will NOT replace the Panzerfaust 30 on any map except Cobra.
The only other map where the German faust kit is replaced is Lüttich, where they will use the magnetic mine instead, because of the close combat focus of that map. The Americans will also use their Hawkins mine on it.

Does that mean only haftholladung on one Normandy map? And will it be on the upcomming new Africa maps? Or all Africa maps?

Haftholladung now serves as an intermediate AT class weapon between Pzb39 and Faust, so you'll see it on mostly 1943 maps.

Will the M4A3 replace ALL the M4A1's on the map? like did you change the M4A1 (76)W to an M4A3 (76)W too?

If the M4A1 76 will be replaced you hopefully use the cammo skin somewhere else, would be sad if it got lost.

No, it won't get lost, M4A1 with camo skin is map specific it would make no sense to replace all of them with another variant. Afaik it was used only in operation Cobra IRL, same goes with troops camo uniforms and that's how it is in game  ;)
