Tank Crew – Clash at Prokhorovka

Tank Crew – Clash at Prokhorovka

From the makers of  IL-2 Sturmovik



Tank Crew will be expanding upon our initial adventure into tank combat by including ten new tanks and armored vehicles and improving our two existing tanks. Tank Crew will create a ground combat component that can be integrated into single-player content and multiplayer servers. Our tanks will be multi-crew in multiplayer which most other leading tank games are not capable of. Our playable tanks will also be modeled both inside and out with realism in mind and improved damage modelling. The map will feature the southern portion of the Battle of Kursk with the village of Prokhorovka and town of Belgorod included. The map will also be built somewhat differently giving tank players a better ground environment then our current large maps. Further details about Tank Crew will be released as development ramps up. 

Planned to be Included in Tank Crew – Clash at Prokhorovka

 

Playable Tanks and Content (Tentative List):

- T-34-76 STZ

- KV-1s

- M4A2

- SU-122

- SU-152

- ZIS-5 + 72K

- PzKpfw III Ausf.L

- PzKpfw IV Ausf.G

- PzKpfw V Ausf.D

- PzKpfw VI Ausf.H1

- Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38

- Prokhorovka - Belgorod Map {100x100 km Approx.)


Pre-Orders for Tank Crew will be available sometime first half of 2018.

A multicrew WW2 tank simulation from the makers of IL2 Sturmovik. What can be better than "Tank Crew – Clash at Prokhorovka"? Can't wait. For more on the clash, read here: http://wartime-blog.com/battle-prokhorovka/

By the way, the artwork for the simulation is done by Antonis Karidis, a self-taught artist from Greece.

See a set of artworks that Antonis did for 777 and 1C GAME studios for their featured products !

IMHO, Antonis' artwork is simply breathtaking. If you were to use one word to describe his artwork, what would that word be?

We have created the new technology of caterpillar treads visualization. This new technology is unlike not to WoT technology and not to WT technology. I can surely tell that our "third" approach is most modern and advanced. Furthermore - our lead programmer Sergey Vorsin have worked not

Beautiful and realistic thread physics. You can see the threads slackening and straining. Leaf shadows playing on the tank hull - very nice lighting effects. Trees! T-34 mows down trees without damaging itself or its crew member(s). See 1:56 and 2:12.
E s i m G a m e s please take note!

Released in Early Access

Next, we are excited to begin Early Access to Tank Crew and the initial release of our first two tanks – the mighty Kv-1s and the fearsome PzKpfw. VI Ausf.H1 "Tiger "

Tank Crew Early Access can be ordered here.



Due to development and gameplay considerations we have decided to create a separate AAA vehicles add-on featuring the GAZ-MM + 72K and Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38. We will prepare them as a separate product to be released later and work to make them a more interesting addition to IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles then initially planned.

In addition to the two tanks released today, over the next 14 months we will release the full line-up of tanks included in Tank Crew.

Ten tanks in total will be created.
1.   T-34-76 model 1943
2.   KV-1s
3.   M4A2 “Sherman”
4.   SU-122
5.   SU-152
6.   PzKpfw. III Ausf.M
7.   PzKpfw. IV Ausf.G
8.   PzKpfw. V Ausf.D "Panther"
9.   PzKpfw. VI Ausf.H1 "Tiger"
10.   Sd. Kfz. 184 "Ferdinand"

In addition to the tanks we will be creating our specially designed Prokhorovka map and releasing that once it is finished. In the meantime, we are including the Lapino maps as stand ins.

We have also added drivable tanks to the QMB including the new Kv-1s, Tiger 1 and existing T-34 and Pz. III tank models. Please note that the existing T-34 and Pz. III tanks are the original models previously released. Tank Crew will eventually include updated versions of these tanks.

And the Kv-1 and Tiger tanks now support custom skins. Templates will be along soon for skinners.

And we’d like to take this time to introduce you to our talented development partners at DigitalForms in Saint Petersburg, Russia who have taken on the task of building these amazing tanks for you. They have worked tirelessly since our announcement last year to put you inside some of WWII’s most deadly and fearsome weapon systems. They have helped us re-invent our tank technology and built some truly stunning tank exteriors and interiors. They hope you like their work!

Update
14.09.2018

New tank models take a lot of time to develop, so Tank Crew customers will get their new toys early next year, but it looks like they'll get a lot of other stuff in a short time frame starting with the map of the Southern part of the Kursk salient (see Dev Blog #195) and continuing with animated tank crew members (ETA: Spring) and their AI capable of controlling the new playable tanks (the work on it has already started). This will make possible to create the missions where the player tank will be a part of the unit fighting against the enemy tanks s which will have the same high level of modeling detail. The main tank systems and damage modeling should be finished before Summer. The work on the additional UI for tank and unit commanders has started too. And of course, there will be new tanks - our Saint-Petersburg based partner, Digital Forms, plans to have 4 of them ready before Spring:

•   Lend-lease M4A2 Sherman;
•   T-34-76 mod. 1943 made by factory #183 (most probably, we're still researching the exact variant);
•   PzKpfw IV Ausf.G made during Spring 1943 with additional armoured sheets (Schόrzen);
•   PzKpfw III Ausf.M also with additional armoured sheets. Today we can already show you the early WIP screens of it:
