Guys, since my old sticky post on Corrections/Suggestions got hosed, I'd like for you to post comments on this new thread. The team is progressing ahead of schedule, we're testing the new OOBs, and we'll also be checking into correcting/replacing/creating LBMs for the previous incorrect ones. What was intended to be a minor tune-up has morphed into a major overhaul. I regret that the previous thread was lost, but we had already taken many notations from the old postings, so, to the gamers who contributed to this, your ideas have not been forgotten.

I think new sticky thread here would in place also. There is already few intresting issues going on in their own threads. Would be easier to follow the OOB discusion if you'd open sticky for that.

Here are a few things I found while making my own Icon Bible when the Forum was down;

Italian; The SMV M43 75/46 has wrong Icon. Shows M12 Sym 555. Should be Sym 286.

Russian; The T18 has wrong LBM---shows T27. Ant FT17 Pic would be a better alternative.

Yugoslavia; Gaz-FO Icon is wrong, Sym 873. Should be Sym 853.

Japan; The unit called "Transport" shows big green OLD tank dozer hull. A Dihatsu barge would work nicely here.

Nationalist China; VCL MKVI shows French UE Sym 703. Should be Belgian vehicle Sym 168.
Carrier B, wrong Icon should be 506.

Nationalist Spain; SdKfz 10/4 has 150mm mortar for its main gun!!!
AAMG section armed with 7.92mm MG 34 AAMG has wrong LBM, shoes US water cooled 50cal AAMG

Czecoslovokia; Humber Scout Car should be Sym 898.
Wrong Icon for P-11, shows PZ II Lynx.

British; Mustang III has Nationalist China markings?

Hungary; S1A1 SM75 Cargo Plane has wrong LBM, shows US Halftrack.

Bulgaria; Renault R-35 should be Sym 216.

Belgium; Camion 75mm DCA has wrong LBM, shows aircraft.

Anzac; Black Prince has wrong Sym, should be Sym 890.

There may be others but these are the ones I noticed off hand. Hope this can be helpfull

Now with all this crap that has befallen us and the changes in this Forum, how will it be possible to post New Icons or anything else for that matter? I have virtually tracked down almost every Icon in the SHP files. My intention was to create a Spread Sheet and post it here. But now I dont see how this will be possible. Any suggestions?

Kevin, the only thing I can tell you is that http://spwaw.com has an area for attaching graphics files. This isn't shameless promotion, but a workaround until Matrix gets everything back in order. My mod privileges were erased, so I'm just thankful I'm able to log on with no problem. I'm not going to bombard David or Shaun with requests at this time.

Voriax,

Yes. But it only supports gif/txt/and jpg. In any case how would any of these formats be accessable to others to download? Especially a spread sheet?

KG Erwin,

So at some time in the future Matrix will allow ZIP files to be posted? I hope so. I took the time to update all my security programs after this last fiasco and will be sure to update and then scan all submissions in the future before I send them to anyone!!

Hackers suck! I hope they hang this jerk!!

Ok, but you could zip your spreadsheet, change extension to .txt and post it. Just tell that after downloading change the extenzion back to zip. But..200k limit...
Hopefully this will change soon.

SdKdz 250/9 crew 4 carrying capacity 5; I don't think so. A capacity of 2 at max. Reason 250/1 crew 2 carrying capacity 4, add a 20 mm turrent with a crew of 2 bring capanity to a max of 2 if that many.

Probably already noticed, but in Nov '44, the US Army armor purchase menu has duplicate Wolverines & Hellcats. Only difference I can see is the price.

Icons for Italian SMVs Should be as follows;
SMV M43 75/34------SYM-----285

SMV M43 75/46------SYM-----286---Wrong Icon in Italian OOB

SMV M43 105/25-----SYM-----593---Correct in Italian OOB Wrong in Cz/Ger

That is all.

Not to worry I always talk to myself that way I never loose and argument.
The 250/11 with the 28/20 MM gun has HE AP and APCR. Now I don't object to the AP or the APCR but the HE is totaly wrong this gun never ever used HE the AP is qustionable depending on how you define the round. This is akin to giving the British 2 pounder an HE capacity. The towed version of this gun only has APCR.

US Army Combat Group problem:
Up til December 1942, the Combat Group comes with a command tank as the company commander unit. From January 1943 until January 1944, there is NO command tank assigned. The Combat Group is commanded by the scout car section.....

In February 1944, command tanks are once again available.

pbear,

The AP is wrong!

You know about the tungsten round.

2.8cm Sprgr patr 41: Fused AZ 5072. projectile weight. 85gm(3.00oz), compleat round weight 577gm(20.35oz/1.27lb)

"This was a high explosive shell round. The projectile was machined from a steel bar to give a tubular body with sloping flanges, the front flange being pierced. The bursting charge was a pellet of PETN/wax weighing 5gm(0.18oz/77.1gr) and the shell was fitted with a percussion fuse. The propelling charge was 150gm(5.29oz) of Nz R P. The Ballistics of this round were the same as those of the piercing projectile, the maximum engagement range still being 800m(875yd)."

German Artillery of World War Two

Ian V. Hogg

A German 20mm projectile weighed 305gm(10.76oz) almost 4 times as much!
But as small as it was it did exist!

How about 20mmPzgr Patr 40 ?
PEN at 100m--------40mm at 0 slope (tungsten round)

Same book!!

in H2H the 28mm has only APCR rounds seems right this way.

also i would question the tungsten round loadout´s of
later war or even middle war german guns, AFAIK the germans
didn´t produce them any mor ein great numbers because of
severe shortages. i read somewhere that only selected tanks/
guns which were to expected to encounter russian heavies
as IS1 or IS2 got a few round in 44/45.

British 2 Pounder towed guns DID have HE rounds issued. The tank guns were only issued AP Shot.

Learn something new every day. Could not have been very effective. So I guess I can continue to beat up Russian Infantry with the 28/20mm HE round without feeling guilty.

IIRC the HE rounds were issued late in the war after most of these guns had been relpaced with the 6 pounder. I could be wrong, I have been in the past and plan to be in the future.

I can't see a shell of that size with an exploding charge of 5 grams being very effective as an anti-personnel weapon. So HEKill 1?

How common was the 20mm Pzgr Patr40? In France or Poland or later campaigns?
I assume it was not available at all before 1940 and possibly not available in the France Campaign. Therefore what value would it have in shooting at T-34's. I am getting at the feasibility of the unit to engage a tank. In game terms, a pen value of 40mm would give this unit a fighting chance against most early-war tanks, but was the intended use for fighting tanks and therefore should this ammo be modeled in the game?

Major,

Yes the P-II is a Lynx. To much coffee I think! Sorry about that one!

One question though. With so few built (101 to 131 depending on source) how did the Czechs obtain this vehicle when the Germans could'nt produce enough for themselves?

P2, Did the Royal Navy use Mustangs? Did they use them for Army ground support? I don't have a clue, it's just my opinion that maybe this plane needs a rework of its art work to make it RAF.

Oh BTW, the Netherlands are useing a PBY Catalina for a Donier. Hope I spelled that right.

Later!!

EDIT; Yes HE value of 1 would seem about right. Pen like a 20mm maybe?

Ok, back to the Sd Kfz 250 in general, they all have to high of a carrying capacity.

"In the standard armoured infanty carrier version a crew of six with an armament of two machine guns"
'German half-track vehicles 1939-1945' Almark Publications No 4.

So the 250/1 with a crew of two and a carry of eight is wrong, working from this basic carry the other 250's are also wrong. No more that a total of six men per vehical, as you increase the crew (adding heavier weapons) the carry should decrease, adding turrents (2 cm AC turrent) the carry should decrease even more. I should think that the 250/9 would have zero carry crew four. The 250/10 and /11 should have a crew of four and a carry of two.
The two MGs in the /1 could be reduced to one since one was an AA mount. The /10 and /11 had the forward mounted MG replaced with the AT gun so no MG unless the AA mounted gun is modeled.

To make the weapons load out work correctly there would have to be a Lt MG section of two men with a lower rate of fire than the four man Med MG section. I do not wish to open that can of worms, so if an MG is added to the /10 and /11 then the carry for these two vehicals should be reduced by two to none.

Yes I love my HT's and AC's

This gun first saw service in 1941 and was in limited service in 1945. Apparently as the barrels wore out and the shell became rare they were replace with other weapons.

I have been unable to find any production numbers for this weapon but I do find pictures of captured one on all fronts. Also I have a book on Iron Cross winners and one speaks of using this weapon in Russia by an infantry unit to bust open bunkers (this was evidently an Infantry Lt AT unit).

What is the opinion on this Forum regarding any changes that might be made to the rate of fire of offboard artillery?

.....or any specific artillery pieces for that matter!

Slow them down some, or give them more ammo, I think. I read constantly about hour long barrages and such, but the OB arty runs out of ammo fairly quickly. If the rate of fire was slowed some, then the ammo would last longer. Alot of the shots are redundant after the first few anyways, as the target has gone to ground.

The other thing that has crossed my mind is on board artillery - specifically the (so-called) portable mortars, 82mm or less.

Surely, such a weapon in a prepared position, in a defend or delay scenario, would have more ammunition available than the same unit in an advance or assault, that relies on what it's crew (and friends!) can carry?

Still have mortars in defend situations running out of ammo after turn 4 - can't be right?
