I managed to get 6 Panzer IV kills with my tank remaining undamaged and crew unharmed throught i got badly wounded as commander standing in Cupola, arrived took every other opportunity to delay then charged forward aimed once and then just kept firing, might be that i save loaded shit out of gambling since you can then get almost all modifications all of them in fact plus radio etc if you already have some modifications. its critical to basically farm exp,not let anyone die etc, for example at airfield take two shots at fieldworks then infantry then zip, fire at aircrafts, dodge the anti air cannon etc. ended up with Gunner being master shooter skilled in cooperation with driver, driver also having some shooting etc my sergeant being proficient in everything etc.
honestly it was like scene from movie 1 Stuart taking out 6 Panzers IV without taking damage crew unwounded and Sergeant standing in Cupola directing fire and getting hit by shrapnels from around him but still standing there. at this rate i might actually be able to take out Tiger with Stuart. seriously if we get Sherman later in instalments i hope we get to fight King Tiger and Panther at same time or Maus because i want to get this high again, best of all aside from gambling save load, i did this without SINGLE DEATH so no extra exp etc to me.
@AllenGies I also figured a way to historically justify gender choice. Idea hit me when playing HOI. you just need slight bit of alternative history Have Amelia Eartheart survive, then volunteer to fight, Roosevelt signs dispensation and it snowballs and USA ends with several thousands of female volunteers, since they are more conservative and not as desperate as russia there is no artilery crew or sniper for women, just Piloting and vehicle crew, if you keep it in low thousands its plausible, since even in WWI Tsarist Russia had women fighting even before Febuary revolution based on dispensation etc, so i figure that between Amelia, Patriotism and Roosevelt being progresive you could end with small pool of women fighter that would still be expectional cases, It would also allow you to integrate women characters into the game instead of just having it be PC.
Hell this is exceptert during the provisional goverment Of Russia times, and i dont think USA would do worse that Tsarist Russia, some 24 years later.
Minister of War and soon-to-be Prime Minister Alexander Kerensky (1881-1970) authorized decorated veteran soldier Maria Bochkareva (1889-1920) to organize the 1st Russian Women’s Battalion of Death in May 1917. Initially, the unit attracted several thousand women. But as a result of Bochkareva’s strict discipline, her rejection of the rights afforded soldiers by Order No. 1, and zero tolerance for any hint of “femininity” (requiring the recruits to shave their heads, give up personal hygiene items – even toothbrushes – and encouraging them to spit and swear), the unit faced mass attrition. The 300 remaining women began intensive, month-long training before they were sent to participate in the June Offensive.
