Thanks a lot Seth.

If you want references, please see Panzer Tracts 8 and 9, Sturmgeschütz IV by Marek Jaszczolt.
Funny thing - if we would have a late-war StuG IV on a Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. J chassis, then the Rundumfeuer ammo capacity would be 2,650 rounds. You can also e-mail Hilary Doyle for further details. Just PM, if you need more info.

Could the German armored cars be featured on more maps ?

For example, I believe a Puma can be used on Villers Bocage...

Maybe replace the Kubel with it since the Schwimmwagen is already featured there and serves basically the same purpose. The map might need some re-balancing if it's introduced though... Maybe replace the Stuart Recce with the Normandy skinned Daimler for Brits then ? Would be an interesting matchup, Puma vs Daimler!

I'd also love to see the 222 in Normandy camo with the improved long barelled 20 mm gun, but we probably don't have a map where it could historically have been used ? :

Yep, as well as on Cobra - or at least couple were destroyed between 25-26 July, in that sector


 
For sure the Germans would gain some mobility, if one Puma would be included as part of reinforcements (?).

Good chance to remind the Sd.Kfz. 234/1 too.

Taking the Puma Sd.Kfz. 234 turretless + the turret of Sd.Kfz. 222 (is not the same in 234/1, but very close. I hope there is no need to model it from 0. And like Luckyone said, long barelled 20 mm gun too)

Current maps where it could be: Eppeldorf (instead of Sd.Kfz. 222) and Studienka (instead of Sd.Kfz. 231)

Nice. Panzer-Division Müncheberg also received four Sd.Kfz. 234/1 + four 234/4 on 29 March 1945, and they were used during the Battle of Seelow Heights. The remaining Sd.Kfz. 234s were destroyed in Berlin city center, during the final breakthrough attempts (refer: Museum Ordnance #24: schwerer Panzerspähwagen (Sd.Kfz. 234), Panzerwrecks, Panzers in Berlin 1945).

Is it possible to make the Meuse river a no-go zone ? I mean the river itself...



It's a bit stupid that infantry can swim in it... I mean there's these beautifully made bridges and defensive positions with sandbags but almost no actual firefights occur on the bridges...

I think this would be a much more interesting map then. The Allies can try to hold the right side of the map and cut off Axis infantry, but they can easily be encircled and cut off if the Axis manage to cap Town and get a squad guarding the northernmost bridge.

There's also great high ground around the river itself on both sides that now gets utilized way less than it would be expected in the military sense...

Understandable suggestion, problem is that you can fall into the river (not in the least by spawning on an SL sitting next to it). And then what? You just die? If there would be an elegant solution for this, then I'd say let's try it out :)

Maybe map side material tweak for all winter maps, so that you take damage from water. It would be rather accurate after all. Would have to see if this works though.

Can you guys consider moving the Panzer II camera over the commander cupola?

Believe me, camera placement has been mentioned many times ;)

Good to know. The panzer 2 has been bugging me ever since the tiger camera was moved and made it look better.

In the kill messages, the Sd.Kfz 7 with the FlaKvierling 38, appears as "Sd.Kfz. 7", but it should be "Sd.Kfz. 7/1" right?

A fact I suppose, since the AA version with the Flakvierling were named Sd.Kfz. 7/1 (to avoid the confussion with the infantry transport)
