i am playing with the viib i saw an upgrade in the con tower for the viib1. it says the deck gun is 88cm and not mm. is that true? in the manual i dont see anything close to that. is this just a typo?

88cm


Propably a typo. It should be 8.8 cm (which equals 88 mm) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Which is still strange to me. Where I grew up, all precise measurements are in mm, as if, 88mm gun or 12mm fishing hook. As my grandpa says, centimeters are only used by boot-makers...

Yes, but mine said dress makers. MM is the standard for engineering practice and trades alike.
If it were 88cm, wow, almost 1m in diameter, that would be one hell of a deck gun.

yea i thought the same because i didnt think anyone in the world now had guns that big. modern tanks can have up to about 120mm. artillery not 100% sure as i cant remember the name of that super artillery piece the germans were building into a mountain. anyone help me on the name of that?
just thought it was odd. if anyone else uses the viib check it out maybe its just my game.

The gun was called V-3. Wikipedia says:

Like the V-1 flying bomb and the V-2 rocket, the V-3 cannon (given the cover name Hochdruckpumpe ("High Pressure Pump") in German) was one of the three "reprisal weapons" (German: Vergeltungswaffen) planned by Nazi Germany during World War II.

Here is a rare pic of a Leopard 2 with a experiemental 140 mm smoothbore gun. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The project was dropped as it came to light that the armour of soviet tanks was not as good as expected.

The V3 was build in Mimoyecques , France

Here is a wikipedia article on it

ww2 guns were that big and even bigger..
the V2 however was not a projectile artillery weapon, it was just one of the first rockets of its kind.

here's what the real big artillery looked like:

"The Dora could fire a shell that weighed more than 7 tons at distances up to 37 km (23 miles)."
