I found an icon for the Sdkfz 234/3, that was made by LuftWJ44 some time ago...
Thank you very much for this as well as every thing else you have done. This has turned into my new obsession as we await PC II.

If I am not mistaken, the "Stummel" was actually a SdKfz 251 with a 75 mm gun (creating the SdKfz 251/9). Though Buffalohump did ask for the 234/3, I thought I would share an icon of a "Stummel". I couldn't find an icon of that unit I liked so, a few months ago, I made one using the stock unit & a gun from one of Flak's units. Guille: I hope it's ok with you if I post it here? And feel free to make any improvements you think are necessary :)

You are correct that the SdKfz 251/9 was also informally named “Stummel” as well as a couple of other vehicles including the SdKfz 234/3. Please see this link (http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/n ... 4_Puma.php). It appears the name revolved around the support 75mm gun. I also would like to add the SdKfz 251/9 “Stummel” to my roster as well.

I stand corrected. Thanks for the link and the enlightenment. :) And of course anyone is welcome to use that icon.

Yep, the icon Pz 38(t) looks good enough. But what if add Big Radio Antenn to it ?
And what did you say about icon for specialized Pz 38(t): Auf Pz 38(t) (Full Recon tank) ?
http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/n ... z-1401.php

And Im agreed with you idea about "Limited Recon" for Light Tanks (no Hiding Move) and I modify my Test equipment.
Im not sure about +1 GD. I make +1 Ini in "Recon" Stance instead it.

Thanks guys for posting (or re-posting) stuff here that is required by other members, this is one of the functions that this thread has to provide to everyone here...

Some comments:

About the Sdkfz 251/9: Phcas icons are very good and well detailed, but some (very small) detail has to be noted, the 251/9 was a mid to late war variant of that half-track, and the icons show the side vision slits, which were a feature of very early Sdkfz 251 Ausf. A vehicles. They were dropped to make faster and more economic production of the vehicle.

Yrfin, about recon vehicles: As I am focusing here in early war types, the Sdkfz 140 will come later, on the other hand, it would be easy to add a frame antenna to the current Pz 38(t) icon, but, again, such variant appeared later in the war (I am focusing in 1939 and early 1940 units) and I think it was a command version, but, yes, it can be used as an icon for a recon unit.

Greetings and big thanks to all!

PS: I will be releasing the Panzerbefehlswagen 38(t) icon soon enough... 8)

Hello Guille and all

I've downloaded your latest pack for some great looking units that I'm eager to use in my customized game (I'm not into creating mods, just picking stuff for personal use only) and I was looking for the 5cm_PaK38_auf_SdKfz_10- but only found the big unit icon in the big unit folder, I can't find the png file with 4 icons in it. Did you left it out of your pack or is there something I'm not getting ?

Thanks

Hello Akkula!

This was a unit I thought you will like, I also made a PVO-4 AA Railcar (an armored railcar with two 37 mm AA Guns), by Intenso´s request, and that will also be of your liking. That last unit will be released with its own custom animation and sound files, also a ground fire switched version! Wait for the mask of the Katyusha railroad car (Anyone knows it´s historical designation?), I will release it soon and I will try to provide also with it's own animation.

Thanks for your nice words! 8)

Uzbek: I will also be making some river gunboats, including the version with rocket launchers...

speedythefreak: In fact, I only released the big unit portrait for the 5 cm Pak 38 auf Sdkfz-10, so I will be making the game map icon soon.

Greetings to all!

Thank a lot Guille !

I think this unit could fill a certain self-propelled anti-tank gap for especially for Barbarossa summer 1941, really glad to see it coming out of for factory in a near future :D

Keep on the great work !

Similar were in armored trains "Kozma Minin" and "Ilya Muromets".

By the way in the middle is the platform PL-42, 2 x T34-76.

Yes, sea camouflage, it's a good idea to mark a naval version of the bombers.

But in my mod, I use the Bebro icons. They differ in perspective from the original. I already forgot which icons are used in the original.
So I wanted everything to be in one style. :roll: And it does not avoid from this.
Oh yes, but I think you can use my icons, because I made them mixing parts from the vanilla ones and Bebro's ones. So, they look pretty well when used mixed with both types of icons. Besides, there is a logistical advantage: I think it is improbable that we see Bebro making new icons for PzCorps... On the other side, I will be providing more variations and new ones... if asked and as long as I find free time. :-) I think I have already released nearly all of the basic German aircraft types icons.

Excellent.
Just match to my concept of a small number of unique units.)

But it's probably better to reduce the unit's scale so that it's the same size as the twin 37 mm version.
And in green camouflage.

And for the ground mode will you do the animation too? Although I think we can use animation from Katyusha.
Yes,I liked the unit in the same moment I saw a picture from one of the reference web pages you sent me...
About its size, considering that the PVO-4 AA railcar was a two axle one and this model is a four axler, I think it should be bigger. So, I will reduce it somewhat, but I think it should be bigger that the AA railcar. Of course I will adapt the Katyusha rocket firing animation for this new unit! It totally deserves it...

I found this interesting set of side drawings about the T-34... I can't read russian, but look at the interesting second profile, which looks like a T-34 with a set of additional armor plates, covering great part of the hull and turret. Also, the camo scheme looked very nice...
