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.

Is it possible to add a blur affect from high explosives landing near by or hitting vehicles?  I've never been in a Sherman under fire, but Im pretty sure if a 75mm hit the hull my ears would ring and I would probably shut my eyes for a few seconds.  Maybe the screen could go dark for like two seconds and a ringing sound plays too.  Something similar could happen if a building is shot.  Right now infantry can hide in the indestructible buildings and have no fear of high explosions (unless it comes in the window).  It would take some testing to figure how far away the blast should take a, but I think it would add to the game play.  It would allow tanks and grenades to better "suppress" the enemy.

The words of Major Sankovsky, commander of one of the antitank batteries of the 13th Army:

 «…a forty-kilogram projectile of any type, successfully launched from an SU-152, and later from an ISU-152, struck everyone. Even a high-explosive shell sent at a Ferdinand, without penetrating its armor, was nevertheless able to shake it to the ground, the German SAU’s gun was torn from the anchorages, and the crew lost the ability to navigate. There was only one thing left; this is to send this elephant for repairs, and the crew, either to the hospital, or to the madhouse …»

You realize that the 152mm gun already one shots all tanks ingame?

There's no record of a Ferdinand/Elefant being successfully recovered from the battlefield, not after being rendered immobile by heavy artillery. Some futile attempts were made, that only led to heavy personnel/material losses, on both the Eastern and the Western Front.
