These are from Battlefield C., BOB will use reduced poly versions of these.

Yeah, tanks in Battle of Brittan?

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.

Sorry, but I don't think so.
Tanks played no part whatsoever in BoB. The Luftwaffe didn't target them because we didn't have any! Most of our stuff had been left behind in France, and we didn't get Shermans until later.
Of course if Germany HAD invaded then it would have been a different story. But the British tanks would still have been underarmoured, undergunned and under strength.
The Home Guard did come up with a few novel inventions of course, you could always model those if you wish.

Ladies & gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. Thankyou for choosing to fly Mandarin Airlines. Those passengers sitting on the left-hand side of the aeroplane please make yourselves comfortable. Those sitting on the right... please look to your left!

As the new sim progresses into different theaters, wouldn't it be cool to have the option to participate in an intense ground war at the same time? This element would have to be part of the coding in the first version, BOB, whether it's useful there or not.

Ah, but that's the weird thing. In Birmingham Oleg DID say AT LENGTH there would be tanks, and other ground vehicles, in 'The Battle of Britain'.

One thing is clear - we do not know the whole story yet.

if the game covers through the end of the war then the tanks will be important for the strafing missions the P-51's used to do to burn extra fuel after finishing an escort mission. But if the game only goes through '42 (as I think it does) than maybe there will be the possibility of an invasion, or a Dunkirk mission or something

Didn`t Oleg say it was a fully dynamic campaign? If so, that would mean that the Germans might invade, involving ground battles with German early Panzers. In the meantime the Royal Airforce may be tasked with a desperate attempt to throw the Axis back with even ground support roles.

Of course I find it a little implausible cos the Axis wouldn`t invade till there was next to no Air Force left, but then what could he mean if he mentioned tanks, etc?

Well, it`s very early days yet.

There will be two campaigns, one historical (obviously means no invasion) and one hypothetical (with a possible invasion).

will have to have great modelling of tidal patterns to make sure that the hypothetical invasion fleet gest washed up!!!!! Oh and the RN too to blow the remainder out of the water.

But I'm confident that it will be as good as it sounds.

Good news from Ian Boys. I like hypothetical battles where the enemy might win. Means I don`t sit back thinking `we won anyway`! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

A hypothetical invasion would be a neat addition. However, British armor, in Britain in 1940, would be sparse and non-Sherman. Let's see some Matildas and Valentines...
