    Ersatz-cockpit for the tanks/spg's

    Post by lockie on Sun May 06, 2018 11:03 am

    There are many units still without cockpit. It is a blinking white-blue monitor as a replacement Smile
    So, lets replace it on the very simple. it is just a box with a couple lights. Anyway it's better than nothing.
    Now STuG III/F/G and SU-122 received such ersatz-cockpit.

    STuG IIIF/G


    SU-122




    If someone has a skill in 3D modeling and want to spend a lot of time then cockpit it is the way for u!

    W've two units equipped with ersatz cockpit.

    Jagdpanther


    SU-152
    A couple words abt. this SPG. I see there are no any missions devoted to this unit puzzled Gunner received a pistol "Nagant", so he can shoot at infantry through frontal armour, but don't be surprised, if u can't hit anything Very Happy pale Razz

    The next cockpits will be for the spg SU-76 and SU-85!

    Updated 21.05.2018
    Ersatz cockpit of SU-76 is ready! There were many fixes applied to the crew and insignia locations and other minor changes. i see there is only one mission devoted to SU-76, inspite that a total built number was ~15000 during WWII.







    BTW
    As it appeared, SU-76 presented in the game is not as it named! In fact, it is SU-12! The most unsuccessful sample SPG.


    Moreover SU-76 had at least two modifications:
    1. equipped with 57mm gun SU-74B. It is a pure anti-tank gun
    2. equipped with 85mm gun and 90mm frontal armor! It is multipurpose SU/GAZ-75.


    There is only one SPG left. It is SU-85 and all SPG's will be equipped with a cockpits!


    PS
    I've placed one Panther against 6xSU-76 and have to say that Panther didn't has any chance at all Smile In the best case Panther managed to kill only two SPG's Whistle

    Ersatz-cockpit for the spg SU-85 is ready! I'd say it was the most difficult unit, which I had met during adjusting. All gunsights had a wrong positions. Gunner's sight was replaced. Fixed insignias, numbers and antenn locations. Updated textures and some other minor bugs fixed.





    I've found out there is only one mission devoted to SU-85. It was made in 2011 year Shocked
    And that's all. Mission was based on the episode from the movie "Alager com alagero" with a main hero SU-85 under the commanding of Lieutenant Maleshkin.

    I've to confess that the best choice is Intel. AMD is a weaker Sad
    If u need my advice then pick up i7. U wont be disappointed.
    So, I'm going to upgrade my "Old Phillis" and the new CPU will be definitely Intel. I'm thinking to buy Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz

    Точно, є така місія Smile

    And now Gents let me introduse a small masterpiece under will73 authority! It is ersatz cockpit for the APC Puma! I'd call it a a real true cockpit, but some features were missed:
    - loader's animation
    - driver's devices
    In all the other cases it is a really good one and looks in a very luxuriously manner! gcat
    Hope to see soon that our Golden Camera Mr.Geoweb35 will record the video, which will demonstrate the new cockpit!

    BTW
    As it appeared Gunner has ability to shoot from the smoke launchers by pressing the keys "Z/X"! It is amazing! Coz I played this game more than 10 years and only now discovered this feature! I'll make a training mission to teach the user how to place a smoke cover  Cool
    Some screennies:

    This is no longer true. However for gaming only Intel may still have a slight edge but cost-wise and if you are using your pc for mainly other things like photo editing that require multitasking then AMD may be a better choice. Here's something specialized to help you make a wise choice

    Let's start to make an ersatz-cockpit for the JS-2! This tank have some missions (may be it needs the whole campaign to be created?) and deserved to have at least a simple interior.  It is just - don't scare the user with a darkens as it is now affraid alien clown

    Actually, JS-2 it is only the one opponent to fight with a Panther and TigerI/II. Though, according to my personal info the real success against Tiger-I was in proportion 3xJS-2 vs 1xTiger-I. Of course, the final result depends on the distance, but the biggest flaw of the JS-2 was his a very slow reloadin'. It is about 30 seconds or even more, because the shell consist of the two parts:
    - shell itself
    - charge
    It does loader needs to load two parts and it takes a time. Moreover, after a shot the crew was unable to do something during the next ~30sec. because of the powder gases, which fulfilled the turret. In the STA mod JS-2 reloading is 17 seconds(in some cases Commander helped to loader) to keep a fun and be somewhat closer to the reality. And don't forget that JS-2 was designed as attack tank against the pillboxes and the other long-time fire points. AP shells were added to him only as a self-defenсe instruction. The total shell's number was 28 pcs. I'm not kidding. Ie. KT-II had 76pcs with a more power.

    The JS-2 has been proposed as the best tank of the war mostly Soviet admirers and assorted lefty nuts. While it was a decent tank indeed its flaws ; little ammo, cramped turret, poor quality armour and ergonomics, long loading times are too numerous to make it the bets tank. Anyway this issue with the  the best tank is to me artificial. None of the tanks form all side was complete or flawless enough to earn that title. There were good tanks which did their job well and others which were abject failures ( hello Crusader and Matilda) and the bulk which were decent machines performing well with good crews and proper maintenance.

    That being said both variants of the JS-2 deserve a proper campaign.
