There were plans for an earlier update, but I guess we have to postpone it now.

Do you think anyone ever actually hit a plane with one of these things?

Why would they have even tried? That would be much more useful against soft-skinned or lightly armoured vehicles, or as an anti-infantry weapon against fighting positions or suspected sniper positions, than it would ever have been in its intended use.

That weapon is a really unexpected surprise. Just like a christmas present. And those screenshots looks nice. A few remind me of ogledow but the othres... where can they be from i wonder?

Yes. We tested it ingame under ideal conditions. Some observations:

1. The low speed of the rocket makes it very hard to hit planes that are not flying directly towards you and very low.

2. The rockets do not do a lot of damage by themselves and the spread means that hitting planes with a lot of rockets at the same time is a game of chance. Generally speaking, you need 2-3 good hits (meaning a salvo right to the face) to reliable disable a plane.

3. The smoke trails of the rockets give away your position immediately.

4. It takes longer to reload than for example a Panzerschreck.

So yeah, it is useless against planes, but a fun meme kind of weapon nonetheless. You can also rape apcs with it and massed infantry, although not if they are in the open and you are on the same level, chances are the rockets will miss. They have very little splash damage.

Merry Christmas, all.

This will certainly a very interesting weapon to use. Has there ever been a game, where this was included?

The new Call of Duty has it.

Not visible in these images; we've also done some maintenance work on hundreds of statics, to clean up big and small lighting glitches and texturing errors. It makes FH2 overall look neater, especially affecting the older North Africa levels. Gavrant has also done an overhaul of the way we re-light levels, for nicer lightmaps and also reduces memory requirements. I've also done another pass to tweak collision meshes, to reduce chances of players getting stuck on statics, and slightly improved performance.

BTW Remdul could you join discord? Need your help with that lightmapping stuff.

Of course I have that option. As long as people keep whining that the mod is dead and/or dying, the option remains.

And since big fans deserve to have their expectations met, the next update will be in Dec 2018  :-*

Have some nice days everyone and if you are tired of all the family stuff, get online and kill some of your fellow FH2 fans!

Nice job! So it fires 5 of them and then 0.1sec 4 more? How many reloads you have?

Ah Lenino is great looking!

Remdul the man!  ;) Did you try to clean Sidi Rezeh airfield building collision mesh?

Uuuu, I like that SdKfz 251/10 Ausf. C. 
Maybe there is a possibility to see a SdKfz 139 "Marder III" in some Ostfront map? It's refreshing to see these older vehicles being used/recycled in mid-late battles: a Lend-lease Valentine would be also great, a tank that was much valued by the Red Army.

Just if I could "wish" for a brand new vehicle, it definitely would be a Hornisse + Hummel (+ Munitionsträger), also considering that they share the same platform. Hornisse's gun would be equal to the Ferdinand's, incl. the gunsight and Hummel's equal to Wespe's, just with the added punch. Well, that would be the dream anyway.

Thank you to the FH team, worldwide.

This looks amazing! I'd love to see a video of it in action, as I cannot even find a video of the real one being used.
