I said knocked out, I did not say double penetration (fuck, that sounds dirty).

Because that mission was clearly inspired by the exploits of Michael Wittmann, who in fact, did disabled some 30 vehicles & other military hardware in a span of 15 minutes in Villers-Bocage.

And I take it you did not sense my disagreement? Or you didn't see what I thought about the Firefly and its purpose?

Why are you talking to me about naval guns? I think I stated pretty clear in my last post that I don't give a shit about them.

I don't care what they are called, they weren't the focus of the discussion anyway. It was Tk3997 who brought them up out of nowhere and called them cannons. If you have a problem with his use of incorrect nomenclature, please complain to him. As for me, I never wanted to talk about this naval gun/cannon comparison bullshit in the first place. We were talking about tank weapons, not naval ones.

While Valkyria is clearly inspired by the era that is World War II, it did not use the era as a blue print, and that we are playing a game where supernatural powers and magical fuel sources are acceptable.
