Good point. Otherwise, we get Battlefield 1942....

And Luttich is a tiny little map. Too much armor, might just break it

But give me an epic land battle, with ground-attack aircrafts and interceptors, AA guns, 88s , Tanks and armored scouts of all sizes, the quad-50, trucks,  snipers, larger arty than the 25pdr (hint, hint), rolling planes and mobile arty and I'll die in peace... screw balance!

oh dont underestimate a good mortar team (spotter + gunner), specially on infantry maps like phl, pdh  they can definitely change and dictate the battle.

Yeah thats why good mortar team shoots stuff like AT guns, MG nests and enemies that are in really good positions and pwn your team.

But still about Luttich, people seems to forget that Germans are on the attacking side and attackers need more firepower like arty. Also US has AT guns and bazooka guy in every bush.

Especially on PHL you need someone to take out the 88 and the Nebel. 80% of all cases where the Amis are stuck at the last bridge flag it turns out noone is in the mortar.

If that happens sometimes the mortar is out of ammo and you can't rearm it since the ammo box near it doesn't do that. And the mortar in the field is a death trap. Still I tend to use it for direct fire.

It's a pickup mortar, you just need to place it a second time and it is full.

Villers is so easy to win as Brit therefore Walking Stuka only balances that map. Arty also feels so useless in that map never seen it done any good.

The wespe is mythic for a retired  bf1942 veteran like me.  Also, mobile arty will bring a whole new dimention to this mod.  One of the most exciting FH2 news ever. 

Good job devs!   :D
