As some of you might remember in an Article on August 1st regarding the swiss national day themed modpack i have mentioned a Panzer 58 remodel to a more historically accurate configuration. Well it has been finished around 1-2 weeks after said article was released and i forgot about it.
Well thanks to some reminders in the RsR discord ( Invite link can be found in the side bar) i can finally present to you the finalized mod.
Special thanks to Milkym4n and Wapted for the model.
This remodel was made using historical photographs of the KW 30/57 and it includes following changes to the Normal Panzer 58 model:
- Historically accurate gun model
- Corret rotation of the coaxial gun ( It was unique to the KW 30/57)
- Smoke Launchers
- Side Skirts
- Removed the commanders hatch ( damage model still exists so don’t expect to not get penned there)
- Other changes to the chassis like wheelbase, engine deck, stowage boxes, exhaust cover and frontal hull shape.
just copy and paste the vehicles folder in the most recent res.mod folder.

There’s something like spine on the upper glacis of the real tank, isn’t it? Kinda IS-3 pike nose.
not really IS-3 levles of a nose, but there is a ridge for sure. It is modelled into the model.
I hope you are doing well.
There were no news since 4 days now.
What ever happened, I wish you all the best and all the good luck in the world.
