Going along with Ramelle could we have a kit with mortar rounds that could be tossed at enemy tanks and infrantry?
I don't think we should drift away that much from reality.

^ FH never has been about reality when it comes to things like those...

Besides, that would actually make more sense (if we go by the movie) than not having mortar ammo resupply for Allied (despite the reference in the movie that they got a bunch of mortar ammo but no mortars to use them or sth like that). It's not like the mortars would be that different from the molotovs (except maybe being able to damage the Tiger slightly).

(At least a reskin of the us Compo-B into a sticky sock would be in order :P)

Suggestion that recon vehicles such as the daimler, dingo, greyhound, puma, 222 etc. be given the ability to spot for artillery targets.

Seem to remember the stug once had this ability. Does it still?

Anyway, idea would make sense to me. Often artillery is spamming for people to give good arty spots.

You do realise that smashing a mortar shell against a hard surface will trigger the propellant and make the damn thing just fly out of your hand, possibly very painfully?

It's like trying to fire bullets by holding the cartridge between your fingers and hitting the primer with a hammer. It's silly.

Any possibility of seeing this in game:



The model of the truck and flak is already in game - they only need to be connected as 1 object and coded, would it be possible?

  • I bet it has already been proposed but I suggest to force the planes to land in order to reload (and you can still create a no fly zone above the airfield to prevent ennemy planes from raping it), it would make them less OP on most maps
  • I don't know if it's possible but I would like to highlight the kill message when you kill a teammate, in FH2 I'm tked so many times, however just a few people apologize in the chat, and that may be because they don't notice they have killed a teammate (as for as I'm concerned I barely notice it in kill chat since it appears in blue, same color as when you kill a foe, most of the time it's only when I check the scoreboard that I realize I have a minus 4 in teamplay --'
  • last but not least, you can easily be killed by small caliber weapons when driving an open turret tank and yet you don't benefit of the advantage of the great visibilty offered by these turrets, thanks to the fact that all the closed turret tanks have the same great 360 view

    I though the open ones have wider FOV... Not sure though...

    One more question, could we get something like an observer position on the open ones? Something like this (the dude on the right):


    Could help with the visibility...

    Would be nice if the second dude could crouch and stand.

    Might be coded with the tank gunner thingy in vBF2.

    Marder has better FOV than Panzer IV. I remember hating the Panzer IV for having that giant commanders cupola blocking your view when you look behind you ;D

    Also winter camouflage for Stug and Flak88 would be cool to see!  :)

    Could we have some dynamite sticks?  Maybe a fuzed or variable timer version like in BFV.  I figured being so generic it could be used my any army by simply changing the wording on it to english, German, Finnish whatever is needed.  Would just be another way to take out tanks or large groups of infrantry.  Maybe even make another 'angry farmer' type kit with it.  ;D
