German Tank Commander instructions

Post by blythmags » Thu Sep 24, 2009 5:11 pm

Hi everyone.....

Has anyone gone to the lengths of putting German language audio tank command instructions in/on their tanks, and if so what method have you employed ?.

I dont know whether you can get sound modules that make these special effects, or whether there are any other alternatives out there ?

Your views as always, would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes

John

Hi John

Not to sure i understand what your asking, but I'll have a go ;) If you have a look at the Benedini sound system, It employs sevral sayings in german. Iam not sure what they say, but i bet someone out there knows. The Benedini system is not cheap, but it is worth it.

Hope this helps.

As Oli says, you can use the excellent sound modules from Thomas Benedini which give you a couple of German radio transmissions ("Kommander!" and "Pint of bitter!" Yes I know it's not Pint of Bitter but that's what it sounds like :lol: ) on demand via the Encoder/Digital Module/Joystick controls.

The other option if you wanted just background speech or atmosphere is put an MP3 player in your model! Dave Dibb of Armorpax did this with his BergeHetzer and had some genuine WW2 German radio transmissions playing just quietly in the background for effect and very effective it was too. The genuine radio transmissions (via MP3) can be found here

The three vocal sounds on the Benedini are translated as (1) 'Enemy sighted', (2) 'attack', (3) 'fall back' :(

But Thomas will add your own sound sample for a consideration. That's how we got the Whoooosh noise for Johnny's Sturmtiger :)

I use an old walkman activated by a Robbe on/off switch plugged inot a MP3 amp from ebay (about £7) into its own dedicated speaker. Tapes used are obviously in my case all modern UK exercises. Sounds great!
