Default Re: CS Cruiser Tanks Ammo loadout

Hi Don
I think there may be a solution to this problem, could the later 95mm CS "cruiser" tanks (cromwell and comet) be moved into class '129-Close Support Tank'? Maybe this would then leave just the 2 early war cruiser tanks in '104-CS cruiser tank'. This class could be altered to allow these vehicles (and so their formations) to be modeled correctly. ie HE largly replaced by smoke and hence no ability to attack AT guns beyond MG range. The 95mm churchills already have their own class, '106-CS infantry tank'.
By the way, Is there any easy way I can tell what units are in each class? Also I would be very interested to know what the various class's parameters/charateristics are. Would this be possible?
Best Regards Chuck.

Which is precisely why we won't be altering an existing class to only load smoke shells.( Narwan knows this.... this info is for everyone else who doesn't ) Even if "104-CS cruiser tank" was only used by a couple if units in one OOB that doesn't mean it's not used by a dozen other OOB's.

As Narwan said, finding out what units use the various unit classes can be done using Mobhack. Load an OOB then click on "FILE" then click on "database check utilities". You can find out what units and what formations use each unit class for that OOB. To find them in another OOB you need to load that OOB first. The Unit classes themselves are described in the Game Guide.

One last point. Save yourself the trouble of going through all the OOBs looking for an unused class that we can code to only load smoke shells. Even if you do find one, we're not planning on creating a smoke shell only UC.
