This video would be great as a training video for the upcoming Normandy patch. ;)

On a side note I really like that AP garand ammo. It would be neat if certain special (aka not common) infantry classes got 1 clip of AP ammo. This could be easily done by adding "two" garands to the special kit, one with normal ammo and one with a very limited amount of AP ammo.

It would be pretty useful for taking out rampaging kubels and such but obviously not tanks.

If only we could do half those things. I thought this video would be pretty lousy, but it's actually quite scary in a way. Even the Carbine is vicious.

Yeah. I was really surprised when the garand dented the armor near the vision slit of that IV F1.

Taking out that 75mm was the best bit.

Perhaps we'll get to see some incendiary grenades in FH2 as well.

How's that scary.  Helmets weren't made to stop bullets.

You don't understand this until you wear a helmet.

Helmets are supposed to deflect a shot and shrapnel that would take your scalp off if it would hit you high enough.
No Helmet survives a direct hit. :)

Considering I have, I still don't see it.  Helmets do not stop bullets, even modern day kevlar, you'll be very lucky to stop anything more then a glancing round.  No one put on a helmet in WW2 thinking that would save their life from a bullet.  Its meant to stop artillery shrapnel, flying debris from exploding shells, etc...

Nice video, the AP ammo footage for the garand is quite awesome. ;)

I've seen these videos before! They're awesome!

I love the narrator, especially when he names off all the caliber shells. FIFTY CALIBER ARMOR PIERCING!!!

Check out my Red Orchestra, FH2, and shooting videos!

I always get a kick when the crews yell "CEASE FIIIIRE". They just sound so plaintive and angry at the same time.

Despite the bits where they're shooting tanks (apart from the 105 HEAT) which don't look very convincing, I think these are awesome.  The narrator reminds me of thunderbirds (Scot Tracy I think).
