View Full Version : Armor Value's
29th Aug 06, 1:58 PM
Has anyone else seen those moments where an 88mm shell from a flak36 bounces of a shermans? frontal armor, Quite frankley im sick off it something has to be done about the armor value's in this game before release i say.
Common since when was a normal sherman able to take on a tiger toe to toe frontal armor to frontal armor personally i say they need to be changed changed to the realism side a bit.

If your going to go after COH for being unrealistic theres way better things to protest against then armour values. I mean at the distences used in the game the 76mm gun on the Sherman firefly could actually pierce the frontal armour on a tiger I believe.

No. A sherman 76mm gun could NEVER pierce the frontal armor of a tiger. It just allowed them to pierce the side and rear armors.

Sure it could.

the sherman 76mm upgrade is NOT the sherman firefly.
The firefly was purely british and the allies in this game is american.

The sherman firefly could reliably penetrate the front armor of the tiger at 1000m with its 76.2 mm (17 pounder) gun using APCBC ammo. Using the APDS ammo it could penetrate at 2000m.
The American 76mm upgrade could onlg penetrate the flank of panther.
