Flying is great and all, but i really want to do some ground pounding some times. I'm getting tired of playing Panzer Commander or Panzer Elite, and my squad ops for WWIIOL are only on sundays. If there is one man who can do a dedicated tank sim right, Oleg is the man!

In an interview I read, Oleg said his father was involved in tanks (driver?) and he would love to make a tank sim, but the tank sim market is very small.

No offense Taylor, but everytime somebody mentions an Oleg tank sim somebody refers to the game above.What Fordnut wants is a tank sim not an rts.He wants to get inside a tank designed by Oleg and shoot stuff up.

Thats not a tank sim, thats a RTS. One hell of a difference.

I am going to buy WWII RTS when it comes out, but as was stated before, I want to drive, aim, and command a tank on a virtual battlefield. I play WWIIOL often, but the tank set for axis is rather limited at this point. I really wish someone would make a new WWII tank sim, it's been at least 2 years since Panzer Elite came out.

what would be nice is for us to be able to drive the tanks in FB a long side our planes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Also allow us to man the AA guns. They could have simple cockpits like in BF1942. That could be fun. Kind of like BF1942 with no infantry but much better airplanes to shoot at with your AAA and fear in your tank. I like BF1942 but I think if they made a version of IL2 where you could pilot other vehicles it would be so much better than BF1942.

Compusa is selling BF1942 on sale tomorrow for only $19.99 down from normal 49.99; also the latest addOn(Secrret Wepons of WWII) for 19.99 down from 29.99...

Do you recommend it? I've only done one First Person Shooter game, Medal of Honor. It was okay, different...though I am predominantly a Flight Sim and Real Time Strategy type, not FPS. I'd like recommendation of someone here...I KNOW that on the BF1942 Forums they will say "Buy It"...

I love BF:1942 BUT keep in mind it's not a sim. All of the vehicle(planes included)physics are simplified. Buy it if you want to have fun,but not if you only want realism. In short,I'd recommend it./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

hope oleg will get battlefield command right, meaning not biasing with Russian super steel tanks and german water-aluminum tanks..

Armor damage model from Combat Mission series and that game will be perfect.

I'm not a huge fan of the whole "secret weapon" thing either,but I love the objective based missions. Being able to parachute out of C-47s appeals to me as well. It's not THAT bad.

Ok, so Battlefield Command looks great and all...

But where does it say you get to drive one of those tanks in the screenshots?

Will you be able to see inside the tank (turret, driver, gunnery cockpit, etc), look out vieports, aim, and fire with those tanks?

Because if you can't, then that's not really the sim I'm looking for... Or a tank sim at all for that matter...

So can you drive tanks in Battlefield Command from "cockpit" POV, and change positions from one position in the tank to the next (similar to FB bomber positions)?

If Oleg makes a tank sim, I had better be able to snipe every passing plane out of the sky with my main gun, or I will WANT MY MONEY BACK ...

i hope that the next flight sim oleg makes will have the ground detail of battlefield command. it would be fun to shoot at those people on the ground, people is something FB has always lacked IMO. the grass is also a nice touch to the landscape of battlefield command, and the textures on the ground look very realistic. it would be nice to see an even higher level of interaction, like haveing farm animals in the fields, or even birds. something that is also cool in the game is that tanks dont always blow up the same exact way, i read something where someone blew the turret off of a tank and it landed 30 feet away. it would be cool to see those tank battles in FB.

yeah,i'm really aching for a wwii tank sim like panzer commander,imagine the things you could do with todays high spec computers.
panthers in the shadows and tigers on the prowl,able to hide in the high grass,able to knock down walls and anything that got in your way,working lamps for nighttime,columns of vehicles and long lasting smoke.ambushes,minefields,it would definately be game of the year as long as it isnt too light hearted.

Why not make a tank-sim add-on for IL-2FB?

We could have 3D internals made by some 3rd party modelers, use the current external/skins, and use the current system of gunnery positions to represent turret and hull weapons?

The current flight model can be bent to work for tanks, left and right engine represent left and right tracks. All we need then is some kind of armor/ballistics model.

Why make a seperate sim. Just make the ones in IL-2 drivable.

If you go to a EB store they have a list of the next games to come out before Christmas, there is a new tank simm coming out, sorry can't remember the name, but apparently its suppose to be good. New FPS like MOHAA called "Call to Duty", something like that, has a demo to download that's looking good. I like tank simms and have been waiting, I actually got my old "Steel Beast" out and have been playing it, surprised it seems more complicated now. Could never get a hold of Panzer Commander, is it any good?

Then it maybe would be possible to kill a tiger (PzKw VI) in front position with a T60 at the range of 1000 m, and the Pantern (PzKw V) wouldnt drive faster than 10 mph and could only turn it tower at 10 dgrs/minut, if the logic of underestimate the german armed technology from FB continues.
