I'm not sure, but can the Amphibious Icon can move thru shallow and deep ?

I tested this some time ago and am pretty sure that the answer is "no".

Now that you bring it up again, I think 'no' is correct. I seem to recall being able to move US Tank Bn's that have the Amphib Icon in Op. Olympic thru the shallows, but not thru the deeps.

Wasn't it the Germans who wanted to fit snorkels to tanks and drive them across the bottom of the English Channel?

I think I remember seeing some American tanks wearing snorkels moving across a river but the river wasn't really all that deep so the water came up to just the turret. And they made it across the river despite all the mud and slipping and sliding trying to get OUT of the water on the other side.

This version of the Pz III:

Tauchpanzer III - Some tanks were converted to amphibious tanks for Operation Sea Lion. Unusually, they were designed to be able to stay underwater rather than to float. The idea was that they would be launched near to the invasion shore and then drive to dry land on the sea bottom. The tank was waterproofed, the exhaust was fitted with a one-way valve and air intake was through a hose.


They were used in Barbarossa.

They certainly didn't need ballast.

I updated the database to v4 version. This will be the final version of the database.

For this final version I made some changes adding or erasing some equipments, also I made some changes in the volume flag of armored equipment to reflect a more real value according with the real size of the equipment, and finally I included a new equipment256.png file into the package with new silhouettes so the 3 files must be together to work correctly.
