Some custom models which I modeled and which were animated by Tankdestroyer, if not mentioned otherwise.
WC 54 animations and OE work by DarkbladeCR. Many Thanks for that.
The Sherman M4 105mm Assault Tank is the first in line,
it comes with skin, weapon, projectile and ebps included.
at the moment,it uses the same stats as the StuH 42 105 mm gun, but feel free to alter anything.

Our next shipment to the CoH frontline: the M36 "Jackson" Tank Destroyer,
armed with the 90mm Gun which the Pershing uses, too.
Complete with sbps, ebps, skins, weaponstats, criticals and icons.
Just unzip into your mods root, and you are ready to go.

As a little inbetween, we present the corrected M26 Pershing.

--> download M26 Pershing from mediafire <--
Pershing?! Right. The vanilla turret is much too flat and it rotates
around a wrong center point, revealing the turret ring of the hull.
Also the muzzle break looks quite uncommon.While we corrected that, TD of course added a commander.
This time, he is included in the download. Also a new skin for the tracks.

As I found a little time, I will restart to release some more custom models in the near future.
Beginning with the Panzer VI Ausf.B "Kingtiger" with the edgier, so called "Produktionsturm" ( production turret )
--> download King Tiger from gamefront <--
--> download King Tiger from mediafire <--
The Production turret manufactured by Henschel was the much more common version than the Porsche one of the vanilla Kingtiger.
The provided skin represents Tiger "213" of 501st SS Heavy Tank Batallon, as displayed in La Gleize.
Historically correct Highres track skins have been added, too.
The download is meant to replace the Porsche Version ingame, but does not overwrite any model file, just the abp.
The commander is now placed in the correct hatch, but the turret MG and Gunner have been removed.
A correct Coaxial MG has been added, though.
Credits for the model go to Skyward!!!

Next one, the Sherman M4A3E2 "Jumbo".
--> download Sherman M4A3E2 "Jumbo" from gamefront<--
--> download Sherman M4A3E2 "Jumbo" from mediafire<--
Designed as an Assult tank, outfitted with extra frontal and side armor and a completely new turret, the "Jumbo" was used
as spearhead an armor companies, as it was much less vulnerable to enemy fire than the standard Shermans.
I know that there already is a Jumbo Model out there, but my model was almost
finished when Loran released his, so I decided to finish it. Have a look if you like it. Anyway, big thanks to TD for animating this one, too.
The model has a "bonus feature" You can choose between the 75mm and 76mm gun via state.
State name will be delivered later, as I forgot it right now.. err.
The download provides all necessary files ( sbps,ebps, weapon. Also UI gfx by Xalibur, many thanks ).
Just drop into your mods root and it should work.

Time for more german stuff: The self propelled howitzer, SdKfz 124 "Wespe"
--> download SdKfz 124 "Wespe from gamefront" <--
--> download SdKfz 124 "Wespe from mediafire" <--
To outfit the Panzerdivisions with mobile Artillery, the leichte Feldhabitze 18 was mounted on a Pz II chassis.
It got light armor protection for the crews compartment, which only provided protection rifle fire and shrapnels.
As always, the package includes all necessary files ( again, UI by Xalibur ) as well as proper crew.
Credits also go to Loran Korn ( rip) for the Gun Model, as well as to Sweeten2213 for the first animation tryouts.
The ingame unit has a flaw, though. It only fires when on even terrain, this has to be checked quite often, unfortunately.
If anyone knows how to solve this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Now its the US again: , the M5 3inch (76mm) Anti Tank Gun
--> download M5 3inch Anti Tank Gun from gamefront<--
--> download M5 3inch Anti Tank Gun from mediafire<--
The US developed that gun, the same 3inch gun as in the Wolverine on the M2 carriage, in 1941 and it entered service in late 43.
Just in time for the new heavily armord german tanks.
The high weight and the immobility of the gun proofed as a big disadvantage, though.
After heavy losses in the Battle of the Bulge, it was taken off service soon.
Again, the package includes all necessary files and again, UI by Xalibur

Time for some more Heavy German Steel: The Jagdpanzer V "Jagdpanther"
--> download our improved Jagdpanther from gamefront<--
--> download Jagdpanther from mediafire<--
Attention! The download includes a Tank commander.
If you have parts of my latest skinpack installed, you may be asked to overwrite files... please confirm, then.
Jagdpanther? You may ask. Good question as the model is in game by default.
We were a little bit unhappy with it, so we gave it a better maingun, with a more detailed muzzle break.
The front fenders were much shorter, so we adapted them too. A commander couldnt hurt, either.
And last but not least, the tank was covered with leaves, for camo.
This is done as a state, which is on by default now, in the ebps action_apply_ext.
State is : "Camo" possibilities are "on"/"off". This, and the commander wont work online, though.

Tribute to a friend: The Junkers Ju 52 by Mr.Scruff
--> download Junkers Ju52 from gamefront<--
--> download Junkers Ju52 from mediafire<--
As we now have working paradrops from planes, all that is missing is a proper plane for german air transports.
This old model by Mr.Scruff, who we all miss around here, was part of "Battle of Crete" Mod, but not animated.
I made a wreck, some propellers and refined the skin a little bit. Tankdestroyer animated it, as good as always.
The plane can be used for flying or standing on the ground. Just use an animator_set_state action.
state is: "flying" choices are "on" or "off"
Junker Ju 52 "Tante Ju"
Its time for a really big gun: The Sturmpanzer VI or better known as "Sturmtiger"
--> download Sturmtiger from gamefront<--
--> download Sturmtiger from mediafire<--
The Sturmpanzer VI was equipped with a devastating 380mm Mortar, which was originally designed for U-Boat hunting.
18 were built altogether and grouped in Sturmtiger companies. It saw combat during the Warsaw uprising and
on the Western Front.
The model is "ready to use", mainly based on the Tiger I data, completely with all necessary attribs and ui gfx.
weapon data is almost similar to the V1 impact. The commander & skin is also part of the package,
as well as High-Res historical Tiger tracks.
...besides, Tankdestroyer did an awesome job with the firing animation, based on historical footage.

Some more rocket artillery: The Panzerwerfer 42 auf Opel Maultier
--> download Panzerwerfer from gamefront<--
--> download Panzerwerfer from mediafire<--
To achieve more mobility for the successful Nebelwerfer rocket artillery, a 10-tube launcher was mounted
on the chassis of Opel Maultier halftrack. Armor plates and an MG 42 were added to achieve some protection.
The Panzerwerfer was a quite successful weapon, although just a few ( approx. 250 ) were built in 1943 and 44.
The model is "ready to use", setup for use with PE though, completely with all necessary attribs and ui gfx. Build icon by Xalibur.
Additionally, highres halftrack treads are part of the download.

Bring in the Bodies: The Dodge WC54 Ambulance Truck
--> download Dodge WC54 from gamefront<--
--> download Dodge WC54 from mediafire<--
This beautiful little truck was the main ambulance vehicle of the US Army. It was based on the 3/4 ton WC-series,
but had a longer wheelbase and featured a closed metal body. It could transport up to 4 patients.
About 23.000 were built between 1942 and 45 and saw service at all fronts.
This truck also has a Co-Driver. A very neat addition, I think.
Animtions by DarkbladeCR. Many thanks for your help.
As always, the model is "ready to use", contains all necessary attributes, UI gfx, a medic driver model & skin and a basic ability.

Note: All the models, skins and data are free for use and changes.
But as always: Please give credit. All models by Halftrack, all animations by Tankdestroyer. If not stated otherwise.
The skins are based on M4, M26 and M10, Marder III and Kingtiger Skin, so you can use other skins with no major problem...but one:
Be aware to use the alpha channel provided in the delivered skins, otherwise the models wont be displayed correctly.
Thanks to Bumblebee Tuna for the alternate download links.
