M45 Quad mount
« on: 23-09-2009, 05:09:56 »
Okay, I know it's a bit early to be thinking of the next content patch, but I was wondering if it's possible you mods might be able to make a version of the M3A1 halftrack that has a M45 quad mount on it. My grandfather gunned on one of these and it would be awesome to see it in game. Hope it's possible. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M45_Quadmount

I asked for the M16 Quad .50CAL halftrack before. They found a Wirbelwind normal and a Quad .50CAL overpowerd  >:(

Overpowered or not, I think the killing power of four machine guns that can currently rip through a Marder and all Half Tracks firing at once would be something to behold in-game.

Why cant the allies have something Strong and powerfull?

And thats what the Quad .50 Did. The germans HATED it. All allied tanks are tin cans against german AT guns, because they where. Now why cant the allies have their Krautmowers?

I made a thread about it quiet a while ago. People found the Wirbelwind in place, but the Quad .50 to be OVERPOWERD.  So a halftrack with 4 12.7MM machine guns is overpowerd while a Panzer IV with 4 20MM Flak vierling with HE power issent?

Might take some search to find it back

Where did I say they couldn't? I merely speculated that it would be really powerful. I never said '...and therefore it mustn't be allowed.' Sheesh.

Forgive me, but almost all the times something "german" is proposed (exept the maus), everyone is= Cool sweet! That thing was so awesome and powerfull! While something allied is proposed, many people are instanly=NO that would be overpowerd!

This was especialy on the older forums.Sorry for my rage :v

i can only think of one reason why this is not "in" yet. because there is no real maps that needs mobile  allied AA. however playing totalize for some time now it seems something like that would be usefull on that map.

there is nothing that is "too strong" or overpowered. if it was used in WWII in a reasonable amount and took part in battles that are portrayed in FH2 maps chances the vehicle gets made are high.
however someone still has to model it. if no one WANTS to model it i wont get done.

The quad 50 would be cool, but if its put in, then the Wirbelwind should be given back its damn explosive power, otherwise it is nothing more now then a quad 50 with a slower rate of fire and less ammo....

well i know this might sound off topic, but its like on red orchestra "Darkest Hour Mod" (also set in normandy!), that it seems that the germans get all the best stuff and yet when people suggest allied tanks or weapons or even an aircraft immediately people say "NO!", so it seems that most people prefer to see the germans with all the best stuff and only see the allies fighting with sticks and stones in my honest opinion, so im just saying there is nothing wrong with the allies having a mobile AA seeing that the germans have mobile AA themselves!, besides the british converted most of their crusader tanks with Anti-aircraft guns!

Another nice British mobile AA would be the Staghound AA with two M2 Brownings.

Its true though. Many people wanna see all the gizmos the germans have, but if even one Allied thing is suggested, like i suggested the M16 Quad .50CAL, many people starting instanly starting to say it is Overpowerd
