What's up with these hand held 75mm cannons?

Postby REN » Thu Apr 14, 2005 6:19 am

Hello all, just reinstalled CC5 after almost a year...and it's still a brilliant game.

But anyways, I've installed the vetmod V2, and the ' cc5 mods collection V2.0' (on 'vanilla' cc5) and I'm happily playing away as german, until I notice many of my units are being killed by accross-the-map artillery fired by infantry units. Couldn't figure this out until one of my soldiers scavenged a 75mm sherman cannon off a dead yank.

Checked out an enemy battle group under 'edit opponent' before the battle, and every unit that's got extra men (care of vetmod) arms 1 or 2 of them with a 75mm.

Anyone come accross this before? Any solutions? What am I doing wrong?
I'm playing with German vetmod and playing as germans.
Anyone?

I think those are actually some sort of artillery spotter weapon if it's a vetmod you're using. The artillery spotter is armed with a big weapon for making your life as a human player impossible.

Hmmm...I'm pretty sure these are actual sherman guns though, when I click the picture of it before the battle it makes the same sound as a sherman gun, and I've seen allied infantry caught in the open by my tanks just lie down and fire them - bye bye tank. Also when reloading they make the same sound as a tank reloading, and the muzzle flash is a puff of smoke like a tank.

It's the 'ccV mod pack V2' that's causing it, and they're 12cm cannons, not 75mm.

Also another question though - can the vet mod be used for the okinawa, GJS or bloody omaha mods at all?

can an infantry man be equiped with 2 weapons that he can fire at the same time, for example the way a tank fires multiple MGs plus its cannon all at once
