Isnt the 76 Jumbo only on Meuse river line?

I believe you are correct. Either way, I enjoy the Jumbo on Eppeldorf, more room to maneuver than on Meuse.

I think they also lost the 75 jumbo on Eppeldorf, instead they got the regular 76 Shermans and the M36, but no more Jumbo.

They could get the Jumbo back in my opinion, but in this case they should loose the M36 completly when they lose the south farm. It would make fighting the for the farm more interesting and there would be nomore situations with two M36 around.

Can't beat the Tiger I. Its both the legendary-ness of it, and also the maps.

Get a good tiger tanker in that on Ramelle, resist the urge to rape, and especially on Villers and Totalize and you have a real party.

Ideal armor loadout for Eppeldorf for me would be:

4 x Sherman M4A3 (3 @ main, 1 @ East Farm)
1 x Sherman M4A3 76mm (1 @ main)
1 x Sherman M4A3 E2 75mm "Jumbo" (1 @ main)
1 x M36 Jackson (1 @ Church)
1 x M8 Greyhound (1 @ main)

-

3 x Panzer IV (2 @ main, 1 @ South Farm)
2 x Panther (1 @ main,  1 @ East Farm)
1 x Jagdpanzer IV (1 @ main)
1 x King Tiger (1 @ main)
1 x Puma (1 @ main).

Wow that is a armor layout, but far to many tanks in my opinion. I think Eppeldorf is good as an half Infatry half tank map. AN open map with great view distance and this number of tanks would lead to massive He spawnrapingin my opinion.

Matilda Mk II, because the axis tanks for the maps it is in can't do crap against its frontal armor.

Panzer II






Vickers tank  :P

But since I suck at tanking, this is very hard choice.

To be fair, 64+ play makes monsters out of a lot of underappreciated vehicles. In a normal server on Olympus you might only ever see 4 or 5 enemy infantry you can mow down before you die (sometimes not even that), but with 60 people on the other team it pays to haul a Panzer II or even a Hanomag into a good firing zone.

It's hard to say which tank is the best (when it's up to the driver & tank) but I have always thought it's the Tiger. The only cons I can find are that it's slow and clumsy at turning. Strong front armor and 88mm main gun make it almost invincible in the good hands.

The only good heavy tanks the Allies have are in Africa. They are slow as hell and mostly have a bad main gun but this is alright in Africa, not in Europe really since the Axis have better tanks than they did in Africa. The American heavy tanks are slightly better.

So any Tiger would be my choice of all the heavy tanks.

Eppeldorf is a map where you can easily place more tanks, since the infantry fight is concentrated on locations, where clever tank drivers don't drive except soutfarm and Eppeldorf North maybe. HE spamming isn't that much of a problem anymore in FH2 since the the HE explosions got nerfed. Give the Infantry more APC's and more smoke grenades and the open fields aren't that much of a problem anymore.

I like the current tank layout pretty much tbh, and wouldn't change it. But the possibility is still there. And I wouldn't place important tanks like the M36 on outpost flags like Chritie mentioned. The second Panther is also a bit too much. Don't forget that the KT is still a beast and can easily take all those Shermans down.

My favorite Heavy tank is the Tiger I without a doubt. Performance whise the KT is better, but I think it is just too lame to use it.  ;D

Well hey, if I can only change the armor layout of 1 map then screw Eppeldorf, it's Goodwood I'm going for :D.

King tiger with porsche turret, because it looks cooler than the angular turret, altough it has a shottrap.
Not ingame, but thats a matter of time i guess.
