Can it pull anything ? Maybe I'm thinking of bf 1942.
as far as i know i once saw a fh2 dev say that the bf2 engine does not support pulling cannons and these kind of things, they said it was only possible in bf1942 engine and bf2142 engine and that they had more possibilities in bf2142 engine dunno if that was a hint to port the game but if it was (probably not)  they could make it a standalone right away from bf2142 engine for a win win situation =-p anyways i should quit dreaming now :p XD
I think you are right, some time ago I so a video showing an Opel blitz with a flak 38 attached to it permanently  :)


I suppose it could be hitched to an AT gun model permanently - as one big model. Don't know about hinging though. Then the vehicle deploys the AT gun by swinging around so its pointing the right way but stays attached to it. The AT gun firing position is just another slot in the vehicle - its all one big vehicle model. Dreaming again  ::).

Porting game on bf2142 engine isnt that big problem. Biggiest problem are all problems and bugs in bf2142 engine that are not knowed to devs and that they would need to take care on.


Is there any video of towed gun from bf1942 or bf2142? I just want to see.

No. It doesn't work. They had "towed" guns in FHSW, but it's bugged as hell.

It's bugged in Bf2 or what? Last time I checked towed guns work pretty damn fine in FHSW. Although not that elegant looking with that "disappear then reappear in towed position" thing, they work exactly as intended: you can leave them anywhere you want, and you can drive close to the dropped ones and pick them up and tow them away...
This sentence is intentionally left unfinished...

Yeah IIRC the limitations of bf2 are with the terrain and how the vehicles respond to it. A towed gun would get damaged by the terrain a lot!

The air stuff would maybe have less problems with that, especially if they already spawn in the air... So Market Garden with towed gliders, anyone?  :P

haha yeah +1 would be a nice idea, in the unofficial fh2 catania map you can jump out of a flying douglas dc3 it flys around the map so i guess it wont be impossible to make paratrooper stuff :D however gliders would be awesome :D but im afraid it also requires to much work for the team to do so, but this is also something that would be really nice for fh2 if the eastern front is finished :D
to do list after the eastern front:
retire?
or
standalone fh2
a market garden map with gliders and paratroopers
and pacific with naval warfare :D
 
never gonna happen i guess :P im dreaming again ::)
we will wait and see whats gonna happen after the eastern front is finished :p
