Not a big issue, but it should be mentioned nevertheless....

Wespe's carried a mg34 (on top of the gun shield) for close defense. Since in bf1942/FH they are "soft" targets they are a tempting target for about anything in the game.

Since armour is insufficient to protect against most threats a mg should be added in FH too. Although the wespe should be kept from enemy line of vision and fire, at least it will have some punch against passing by enemy infantry, jeeps, apc and planes before they notice that you are there and come for you.

The BG42 wespe has a mg too, but that shouldn't stop FH from adding it also. The vehicle is incomplete without it.

That sounds like a worthy addition. Now if I could only get people to spot targets for me ;).

I said it was mounted on the gun shield wich is half correct.....

Wespe carried a mg34 inside the fighting comapartment ( behind the gunshield ) and could be mounted on the gunshield.

Note that this goes for marder, hummel, panzerjager, panzergeschutz and other open type artillery with gun shields too.

Please give them a mg34 position when coding them into FH....
