In the kill messages, the Sd.Kfz 7 with the FlaKvierling 38, appears as "Sd.Kfz. 7", but it should be "Sd.Kfz. 7/1" right?
Done  ;)

Hey, I would like to suggest something that may make Polish in game just a bit more unique as a faction. So Polish Army in the East used Polish ranks and insignia and retexturing FH2 models would make them more unique from Soviets without making a new model with wz. 43 uniform. Should you wish to actually consider my suggestion, here are some references and my proposal as to what ranks imo could be used.

Some references of soldiers in gimnastiorka's as this is the most relevant to the models ingame





As for the ranks:
For "re_light_soldier" just a clear shoulder strap, like the guy on the left on 2nd pic

For "re_heavy_soldier" like the guy on the right on the 4th photo
 

For "re_nco_soldier"

is there a technical reason why deployable MGs don't have the freelook feature?

I'd love having the ability to look around without turning the whole gun (very slow with non 360 degree tripod mounts)...

Yes, they have crouch ability instead, so you can hide when under fire.

Ah, I see your point, got confused for a bit because freelook used to be activated by the Shift key in BF1942 whereas it's Ctrl in BF2/FH2.

Maybe consider giving the 3rd person camera back to the deployable MGs? Or would that make them too OP because they would be too hard to take out?

There is an alternative way of doing it but it probably means a lot of work to implement on all MGs, but rear guns on two seat planes have this kind of a free look when you're not zoomed in. I think that would work. 3p camera is just nonsense, I don't see how that would help, and how that would make MGs too OP either, not gonna happen.
