About the scoped Carcano: The Italians did not issue sniper rifles during WW2.

yeah, for me they look unfinished too.
Good to hear that I'm not the only one to think so!

Not only the lack of equipment, the fact that they were fighting in (almost) all battles in Afrika but in FH, they are only at... 4 maps I think. In reality they ever assisted the Germans. In FH it seems like they are not important, only on a few maps their tanks are existant, but not the soldiers...
There aren't enough Italian tanks.

If someone is going to do that please make a L3/33 and/or L3/35  tankette.

Does anyone actually use the mine detectors?

No.

In all years I have played, they have saved me a couple of times. It's pretty common that someone puts mine under empty enemy tank. When in doubt, you can check underside of tracks with detector. Otherwise it's obviously easier to just look for the mines with magic eyes :P.

I wouldn't cry after them were they removed or something  ::).

Edit: Solothurn actually is used on saharana (or something) scout car. I wonder if we ever will get handheld version of it and same goes for Lahti L39. They are pretty big weapons and could look comical if used like Boys.

I guess they could work like deployable MGs.

Interesting mines you listed. I'd never seen those before. :)

I'd love to see the Italians finished too, but that's a lot of work you listed right there. It would take a good chunk of time to get them in properly.

Regarding the maps that they're not on. It's kinda a preference thing. In most battles like gazala and el alemein there were about equal numbers of Germans and Italians. But you can only have one voice on a map. So either you pick an army or pull a sidi rezegh or Tunis and have Italians speaking German.

Also, you're not gonna get those stationary weapon models for a map like Bardia. Maybe if FH2 goes to an Italian front there will be incentive to polish them up.  :)

Also note that while Germans and Italians fought together, that doesn't mean they fought together on a tactical level very often, like would be the case on an actual FH2 map. They had their own divisions holding their parts of the front, so outside special circumstances it wouldn't be like Germans and Italians sitting in the same trench, fighting together.

I'd love for the Italians to get polished up and get to be in more maps, but obviously the devs are focusing on the Eastern front more right now (as they should be, given its importance to WW2).

...That said, the Italians DID fight a bit on the Eastern front... ;)

That being said that would require new player models so dream on.

Yup, they did. I don't really want all that new models, but they should just fix weapons and improve the models that are now using
