Yes, they are excellent, and I wish that Steel Beasts had graphics that were that good. At the same time, I do like the graphics it has now.

We always wish for more....SB has an old engine which the developers are finding very difficult to update/add new things to. SB is still a great Tank simulation  :thumbsup

It's still in development although some vehicles have been released already. I tried Pz. III and T-34/76 which were quite immersive Tank behaviour seems very realistic but these two vehicles are modelled completely, like Tiger or KV-1 for instance. Driving is more realistic than in Steel beasts. You can feel the weight of the tank. It takes time to gain speed and the vehicle bounces on every bump. Damage modelling is also very good.

Regarding Steel Beast, I prefer realism over visuals although its driving experience could be better in SB. It's for more immersive in Il-2 or Steel Armour Blaze of War. I actually drove a real T-55 so I have something to compare it to.  ;D

Overall Il-2 as a flight sim is much more immersive than I initially expected.  I am a fan of DCS, in spite of its shortcomings, but comparing DCS WW2 aircraft and Il-2 I tend to enjoy the latter a bit more. There's something in it that takes you back 75 year into the past.

Thank you, there seems to be no alternative to the Steel Beasts yet.

Thank you, there seems to be no alternative to the Steel Beasts yet.

Games/Sims like iL-2 and Steel Armor Blaze Of War (SABOW) are not an alternative but can add to your tanking fun.

I have found that the T62 in SABOW is a great simulation of a real tank, as is the M60. You really get a good feeling of weight, acceleration, deceleration. It can make you feel like you are in a tank. The engine struggles depending on the surface. There are many surfaces simulated in SABOW and each is different and lets you "feel" you are on mud, grass, sand, water etc. It also has great physics. The immersion is very high. You "feel" part of a crew. You can swap a dead driver with a loader if you wish........Oh the devs are easy to talk to  :thumbsup

Tank Crew Clash at Prokhorovka is a new title in development. It allows multi-crew. I have done it with Beef and Wilso  :thumbsup . It is very promising. It has the weight and feel that I would associate with a tank. Oh the devs are also easy to talk to  :thumbsup

There is room in your collection for all of them  :thumbsup

Hello everybody,

The year has just begun, but we're already preparing the new update for you. Version 3.010 will be focused on improving the functionality of several modules of the sim and some of the changes are long-awaited and important. In the meantime, the work on all the Early Access projects progresses according to the schedule and many new things will be ready shortly after 3.010 release, in Q1 2019.

Our map designers are finishing the map of the Southern Kursk salient that includes Prokhorovka. As we announced before, it will utilize the higher detailed landscape wireframe and higher detailed buildings damage. When it is finished, the work on the scenario campaigns for "Clash at Prokhorovka" will begin. The campaigns will recreate the large scale historical events of July 1943 to the South-West of Prokhorovka. Today we can show you several screenshots of this map:

















We plan to show you the new tanks soon - M4A2 Sherman, Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.M (to be released at the end of the Winter) and T-34 mod. 1943 and PzKpfw IV Ausf.G (to be released at the beginning of Spring). We also started the implementation of the major feature - animated tank crewmen. This is a very laborious and time-consuming task since each tank has 4-5 crewmen and each one of them has his own unique pose and animations (many can also lean out of their hatches). This forced us to find new technical approaches for character animation that open new prospects not only for the Tank Crew but also other projects:

Update 08/02/19


This week we finished the map of the Southern part of the Kursk salient while two next tanks, M4A2 and PzKpfw III Ausf.M, will follow soon. The new tanks and the map will be released into Tank Crew Early Access after beta testing. Today we can show you the first in-game screenshots of them taken near Prokhorovka:
