Got a little frustrated playing a dead is dead campaign. AA got my 190 so I decided I needed some highspeed bombing run practice.

On the Smolensk QMB map load up for a bridge as your target. I have made this run about a thousand times before tonight but I was taking a lot of hits in my Jug so I thought it would be funny to see if the AA could knock out the bridges while shooting at me.

After making a pass under the 1st bridge I headed for the second and there is a Hetzer TD about 20 or 30 yards out on the surface of the river??? I went back several times and I can't see a barge so I'm guessing its one of those top secret amphibious Hetzers with water wings?

Somebody fire up that map in QMB and tell me I'm not just getting senile OK?

I always have just enough fuel to arrive at the scene of my crash.

You are incorrect friend.. That is a phase Hetzer.

Although the Americans had their Philidelphia Experiment, the Germans were also conducting tests on phase equipment as well. The thought was not to make weapons invisible to the naked eye, but to actually make them appear to be in a place where they were not. This way, the enemy would use up all it's ammunition stores shooting at bogus targets. The idea initially came from Rommel himself after his tests using dummy tanks in Africa.

The project was eventually abandoned after it was realized that Soviet green laser weapons could detect the false presence of phase weaponry.

You have discovered yet another amazing piece of Top Secret classified military hardware that has accidentally made it to this sim. Now that you know this, however, you will have to be killed. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No, you are all wrong-that's just a hologram of Hetzer http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Real Hetzer was in the bushes, perfectly concealed.

No, seriously-there are few glitches, probably because of imperfections of terrain 3d model.
Take this example-try to put AA at the hill with little castle on top in Crimea map. You wouldn't be able to do so-maybe you could even place it inside the hill-so when it shoots up, you wouldn't know where it's coming from. AA there would be the most advanced German secret-self digging-in AA that fires through the soil.
