Right which of you modders can make a mod to give the AA Tracers ?? at the moment its so inacurate using the iron sight, i try to begin behind and walk fire over the enemy plane but the iron sight is like 2 mins behind.. Needs fixing as nobody will use it as it is..

Also Engineer needs a thompson atleast.. The shite he as now makes the character unusable in battle...

I agree about the engineer he does need a better gun when he is used in multiplayer. As for the AA guns if they where easier to aim you would have to wait in line to use them, its a pain now tring to fly a plane with them firing at you.

Yeah, the "iron sight" is a little behind, but leading a plane usually will get the job done. I think the AA guns are fine the way they are. It is sufficiently difficult enough to hit a plane that when you do, it feels oh so good.

Why dont you try shooting down planes with the turrets off the battleship? I did that once and hit a teammate by accident...it was still cool though.

That hanomag with a 38 flak on the back looks pretty cool. Now if we could only shorten the barrel and make it look more like a turret than a flak cannon we'd have a great anti tank weapon! I still think we need mobile anti air like in Desert Combat.

You must understand the AA gun is not a gun it does not shoot bullets so it's not ment to hit dead on for a kill, in WW2 they used Flak Cannon's what are lets see if I can dumb it down, a grenade, that when it blows up it's ment to shred the enemy, altho a direct shot is nice, it does not haft to hit, if your having probs with shooting down enemy planes it's most likely your lagging or he is. I can shoot down a plane in 1 pass, just work on it you can get better

The engineer's gun is fine. He needs a long-range weapon with high stopping power so he can clear out the infantry from around tanks and plant the detpacks. However, my realism mod gives the US engineer only an automatic. I wanted to work in all US weapons and the Garand was used by others, so I gave the US engineer the BAR. All others still have bolt-action rifles. It should be done sometime next week, check it out.

The engineers weapon would be better if he didnt hug it to his chest when he ejected a cartridge, and if he had a realistic amount of bullets in his mag(what were they thinking with 5), but dont forget, hes not for assault, hes meant to stay behind the assault and repair, repiar, repair.

I think the M1 Garand should be used as the standard Engineer's weapon. This should not pose too much of a problem as it's already been put into the game. We just need to get everyone to d/l it and then get some servers to run it.

As for the AA guns, I d/l a mod a while back which includes a Flak Tank (not the Ostwind} which is just a panzer 4 with a flak 38 in place of the main gun, point is this tank has no target icon, when you fire you see the round leave the gun and then watch as it flies through the air to explode. I'll have a look at the files and see if I can suss out how this was done and will get back yo you.

It fixes that too, No4 has 10 and US has M1 Garand. BTW, how much was the BAR used by the US? Could I get away with eliminating it until I can lookat and use RtR's system?
