M....milords.... I beg of you...

The Dshk on the T-34-85 was a post-war refit.

They already went back and forth on this on the Discord. MadMat said he’d look into it, but that it did exist during the war, at least on the IS-2.

Yes, somebody claimed the mount was post-war, but both gun and mount are pictured on IS-2 in Danzig in early 1945.
The issue seems more to be that this very IS-2 mount might not have been retrofitted on T-34/85 before the late 50's or early 60's.

Per J. Zaloga T-34-85 Medium Tank 1944–94 - MG mount was installed starting 1952, same year T-55 got it. Even T-54s never had these.

Indeed, I've investigated the matter and we (I :( )was indeed wrong in having a DSHk mounted on this tank.
Note that it is the ONE T34 variant we have a AAMG mounted on, and it had to be the one we've shot the most in the trailer ... :(

While we’re at it, could we have a white Panzer Lehr sign removed from all Panzer IVs please. This was only used on II/130 in Normandy. Not a biggie, but would be nice...

Thanks for your feedback. The game is still in pre-alpha (the cap of the guy on the key art seems to be in pre-alpha too!). Obviously, we're fixing everything. Don't hesitate to point out stuff like this!
