We’re too busy getting [edited]mercs to get actual, real tanks

We never get pc tanks right away and they always  bring pc tanks over they may have issues nerfing unnecessarily but they're pretty good with bringing the tanks over within a reasonable time

I understand some tanks had "cutter blades" for hedgerows and vegetation.  That may be it......

That’s exactly what it is. I haven’t seen a picture of it done to a Wolverine before (although I’m sure it happened), but that was a real thing put on some Shermans in the field.

 

It’s a nice bit of attention to detail for a Normandy specific tank!

2km away and they got a hit? That will simply not work on the console version with the crap RNG in place. :p

 

I wonder if there will be any specific D-Day ops for June though, maybe mingled with Charlie ops?

Even better it will be assault from the beach and the reds will all be bots--half of which are arty that will one shot you!  :trollface:

 

 

 

Is PC getting are merc like with those spikes on the front?  Oh my!

 

Seriously, what are those?  Bent fenders?

 

Edit:  Ok seriously what are those?  I've googled the tank and the only one with those is the PC version--none of the real pictures I saw.  I'm sure they are for an attachment or some tool, but don't know.  Calling all Jocos and Betas...

 

Could be something that was attached to (mostly?) Shermans to deal with the Bocage in northern France - Never known them to be put on M10's though.

 

 

EDIT - Should of read further....

Interesting, thanks for the photos, any idea on if they were ISSUED to the Tank Destroyer units, or just the Armoured units and the TD's "Borrowed" them? (Like the HVAP ammo in reverse)

we get more non mercenaries than mercenaries though? We just had the thunderbolt and the next tank is the ism. Most the premiums they sell are non mercs. It's a very nice tank and I hope they bring it over soon but even at mercs release we were  getting plenty of non mercs

we have many more non mercs to mercs and why compare to pc and ignore that we have more premiums period than pc.  Hate mercs if you want but saying were being drowned in them is disingenuous.

None of them were “issued”.  The hedge choppers were made in the field from cut up obstacles from the Normandy beaches. 

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

You sure on that, I seem to recall that these were a classified secret in an attempted to use them to surprise the Germans.

Quoted from the wiki article - 

Initially the devices were manufactured in Normandy, largely from German steel-beam beach defensive devices on an ad hoc basis. Manufacture was then shifted to the United Kingdom, and vehicles were modified before being shipped to France.

 

Around 500 of the assemblies, called the "Culin Rhino device" or "Culin hedgerow cutter" by the Americans, were manufactured. These devices were used to modify nearly three-quarters of the US 2nd Armored Division's M4 Sherman and Stuart tanks and M10 tank destroyers in preparation for Operation Cobra.

(I knew I had seen them on Shermans and Stuarts, but wasn't sure about the M10 until I saw the images posted above.)
