but not captured.
It will stay as a myth, tale or legend
But its origin shall never be questioned.

Well before anyone gets angry over the engine changes, germans tanks may also be getting a terrain resistance buff to compensate for that. :blinky:
Beware the scrub, the box and the 555.

I like the changes they are going to make to the German heavies (if the changes posted here are true  :harp: ), its going to be much more enjoyable to play these German heavies  :playing:  (to top it of, im playing the Tiger right now to get to the Tiger II  :glasses: .) Also I heard that other than the buff to the terrain resistance as mentioned by death2you,  :great: the original engines that are not removed by the patch may also get a buff as well  :glasses: .

Tiger 2, reproved?  REMOVE or IMPROVE? Obvious, remove.
