They appear to be confirmed in practice, since a Red Army document on tactics of Tiger combat notes that it can be penetrated from the front at 1000 meters, and from the side at 1450 meters. It is not surprising that an 85 mm gun with similar ballistics was placed first in the SU-85, then in a T-34, to make a dangerous enemy for any German tank.
So the T-34/85 could reliably penetrate Tigers from within 1000m range, and could still catastrophically damage it from 1500m range, so once again, I see nothing wrong with how it's implemented in gmae so far.
And as Drag said, the only real time Tigers struggle is against overwhelming firepower, ambushes, airstrikes or IS-2's.
This is utter and total nonsense. You found this here http://tankarchives.blogspot.com/2013/0 ... igers.html and it is complete and utter nonsense. Pictures there were from soviet propaganda and no T34/85 could EVER penetrate Tiger from distances of over 1 km in frontal armor, not to mention, IF YOU ACTUALLY PAID ANY ATTENTION, to the fact that in my case distance was well over 1.5 kms.
Some people, like you are what Aristotel call uninstructable, meaning no matter how many times you tell them simple truths, they will go on lying and misconstruing. Just stop.
Oh and BTW you also have to ask yourself how could it be that Tigers shots, MULTIPLE SHOTS did not kill those T34s? Is that also "normal". Tiger KILLED T34s of any modification without exception at distances of 2kms, so why is it that in this game Tigers shot is almost weaker then T34/85?????
Unit balancing is all wrong and that is a fact.
