It's a Mk3 with the 75mm (same as on the Sherman), MkII had the 6pdr. Machinegun fits in the little box to the side of it.

edit: and I just realised I missed YET ANOTHER bit off. That render is already misisng 2 bits. :(

How are you going to differentiate all these tanks?

Or they just going to be different skins of basically the same unit, give and take a few % HP and dmg...

most tanks look different to eachother even the different types of the same will look significantly different.

They all serve unique roles. We are working hard to prevent the inclusion of any useless or excess units.

For example, the T-34-76 vs the T-34-85 is very similar in distinction to the Sherman standard and the Sherman 76.2mm HVSS, where one is the main line unit, while the other is an upgunned anti-armor role.

Ah sounds good, so we don't get T-222A as well as T222B featuring upgraded cupholders and not to forget, the T223GC featuring a upgraded cushions for the drivers seat.

hi, sorry for asking off topic
but, is it true that upspring now emulate spring lighting perfectly ?
coz the 1944 model in upspring looks flat without lighting but looks very good when lighting on...
(i cant see the true lighting in spring since im currently on temporary crappy video card since my former good one broken)
thx in advance for info

Are you refering to the shadows or shading?

Spring applies goraud shading to models even on the crappiest cards, it's the same as in upspring.
