I noticed a lack of realism in the game. I work with M1A1 Abrams tank, so I should know. There is a device called "hoffman" device that is placed on top of the gun tube, used during training to simulate the main gun firing. Its only used in training. So I e-mailed the developers about 3 weeks ago, and never got a response. I guess they dont care about realism. I am pissed

I think they added it because it "looks cool". Thats why I emailed them to take it off, but guess they dont care Here is a screenshot to show what I am talking about. See the thing above the gun tube? Its should not be there battlefield-2-20050315025012742.jpg

The devs have said a few times that they are not aiming for realism, but more arcadism and fun. However you do have a good point about the models, there's no reason why the models can't be accurate, even if the gameplay isn't realistic. But that's why there were so many mods for BF1942, the desire for ppl to have accurate models and even firing charecteristics, inspired mods like FH, BF Realism mod etc.

Now who exactly did you email? EA or DICE? And also remember that they are coming up for release date in a few months so may be busy, but you shuold stil have got a response, even if it just said they were to far advanced to change the models now, they should listen to us, we are the potential buyers after all.

Hey mate, I spoke to one of the testers who is ex US Army, and he managed to get them to remove the "Hoffman" device. Hope that helps :)
