Hi.
Didnt read all 38 pages but now with alternative sights being added to sniper rifles in next patch I would like to see such option for K98 and M1A1 Thompson submachine gun and some other weapons that have such ability. It would be cool wouldnt it?

Why not? Some people liked those M1A1 sights. And also there are already posts about K98 sights on early Africa maps on this forum

It would be nice to see few little tweaks on StuG IV to make this vehicle more historically accurate:

- Remove the coaxial MG (StuG IV never had one)
- The gunner's sight from the StuG III Ausf G (currently Pz IV's)
- A variant with a Rundumfeuer MG (eg. StuG III Ausf G "late" roof)

and please, add tank riders to the Hetzer - currently it doesn't have this option at all


Thanks

The sniper sights thing actually makes a difference in gameplay, how would two different sights on the Thompson do that?

On Thompson it would be for some cosmetic and for some more helpfull. As far as I heard FH used to have those sights long time ago but they were removed. On other side there are people like me who prefer those old sights instead. Thats why.

On K98 in real life you could choose which sights you will use as far as I know and I definetely play better with those you have in late maps

I don´t want to sound selfish as I always mention only myself but I believe more people would like that :D

It's a lot of work for not a lot of reward.  The average combat distance in FH2 is 100-200 yards, and the max fog distance on any map is, IIRC, 400 yards.  So even if it was ingame, it adds almost nothing that just quickly raising your aim doesn't already do with a lot less work, AND a lot less time spent as a player fiddling with variable range settings.

It was just suggestion,not a must. I am fine with K98 but those "late" sights are just better so people could choose which one fits them better.

Wait, are you referring to the sight hood?  The reason the late-war maps have that is because the sight hood was introduced in ~1943 to protect the front sight.  It literally did not exist prior to 1943.

Oh. Well my knowledge has failed here. Sorry then :D Then yes,for one weapon I don´t think its really worth it.

But didnt  the saukopfblende used on the in-game stug Iv offer a coaxial mount from 1944 on? On the late war stug III they were installed as well.

All (known) pictures of the StuG IV show no coaxial, this also applies to the wrecks that have been recovered in recent years. Here's a "final" production from '45, build on Pz IV Ausf J chassis. Notice the symmetric shape of the mantlet, whereas ones with the opening for coaxial were asymmetrical with distinctive "bulge" on the MG side.



StuG IV in the game is an "early" version. The cast mantlet with co-axial was introduced as late as 9.1944 by Alkett, but 97% of StuG IV were made by Krupp.

Hey, I have a small suggestion that maybe you could replace German mortar used by Italians with American one (maybe slightly retextured). As far as I know both M1 and Mortaio 81/14 Modello 35 were based on the same french Brandt design and even Americans, according to this (http://www.lonesentry.com/articles/it_mortar/index.html) said in their intelligence bulletin that it's "Remarkably similar in construction to the 81-mm American M1". I think M1 would be also OK for Finns if they would need a mortar. What are you guys thinking?
