General Discussion / Re: Blinking flag
« on: 07-12-2018, 03:12:37 »
This is one of my favorite features that has been added to FH2.  In all BF games I am the kind of player that spawns at empty flags left by teammates who constantly zerg from one flag to another only to have the flag they were just at get recaptured.  Having this kind of warning helps make players more likely to help keep control of territory already won!

When this was first implemented during beta tests, I thought it was only going to work for push maps, but was really excited to see it apply to conquest as well. 

How I see it, it is just an indicator that an area is 'active,' just because the defending team can see their flag is under attack doesn't mean they will win the fight for it.  If you fail to take a flag simply because the enemy knows you are there, then....sorry?  ???

But afaik there is an italian bundesarchiv (there were saez 1940 pictures there)

Oh, I thought those were Russian soldiers at first!  Even more interesting if they are Italians.

What is up with that muzzle brake?

I don't recall ever seeing a stug with that sort before...

"Direct hit. German half track and 105MM Howitzer which it pulled, lies smashed by a direct hit from anti-tank gun firing from 3,000 yards during the Seventh Army sweep near Le Coulunvier, Southern France. On left in gully is dead driver of vehicle.' Likely Le Colombier, Alpes-Maritimes, France. 1 September 1944"

Looks like a 3rd ID patch on the guy to the right. Also, what kind of hakftrack was that? A sdkfz 7?

That is a good question.  I don't think it was a tracked vehicle; the rear wheels look far too thick for track road wheels.  It also looks like it has a cabin at the front, so it looks like it was some kind of truck or tractor.  Those rear wheels look very odd...they look really wide for a single wheel, but I can't see any gap that would suggest them being double-wheels.

"buttoned up" ?

Everyone inside the tank with all the hatches closed, so they have to rely on vision slits and periscopes to see.

Chasing partisans in the Savukoski area,

What partisans would a Finnish soldier be chasing?

Were those logs kept as a way to get out of mud?

Thanks, yes, I was interested in the false visor aspect!

Seth_Soldier - That's a nice textbook example of Škoda camo, with false visors painted on.

Do you have any more information about such practices?

The hell is going on with blue dude's hat.  It's like a rogatywka on steriods.

I think it is flat on top and his head is just tilted.

Did they fashion an ad-hoc armored train by fixing S35's to some flatcars?

I may absolutely loathe the direction of BFV, but I ain't gonna turn down an unsolicited free code to a closed alpha test!  :P
