The Ostwind needs some alterations in case of gamplay.

First there should be a 3. position to use the hull MG like at other tanks.

Further the splash damage is far too high (I killed 3 soldiers with one shot), but the rate of fire is far too slow. The Original Flak 43 (used in the Ostwind) fires with 150 rounds per minute (5 rounds in 2 seconds). The barrel´s angle is -7.5 to 90 degrees. The Ostwind can also be used against infantry and light armoured vehicles.

I think this could be managed. The model however looks very nice. http://www.achtungpanzer.com

Since I am no English native speaker I can not really see the meaning of your post. Was this meant as a compliment?

Well I can also give a link, which descripes almost all German Flaks as well other weaponry. The problem is it is in German. Since I am German I can read it. But I am too lazy to translate all of it.

"Goood Sh*t" is an English slang that basically means " Buddy your right on target....."

Yeah I noticed that It was very crappy against planes and tanks (no damage at all?) but very lethal to infantry. Pretty the same with the Duster.

Well it also seems that the 37mm Flak 43 is clip fed. Each clip holds 8 rounds. So there would be a firing span of around 3 seconds, each followed by a reload time (maybe 1-2 seconds). Oh and according to the data there were even 2 AA-MGs mounted on the turret. Pretty crowded in there.

I would appreciate it if the Wirbelwind wouldmake it into Forgotten Hope. Although it is said that the Ostwind was more effective (maybe due to less ammo consumption and bigger caliber to crack light tanks) the wirbelwind was a feared weapon especially to low flying planes.

The Wirbelwind featured a Quad flak 38 (20mm, 480 Rounds per minute per barrel theoretically 220 RPM practical, 1820 RPM (880 RPM practical) total) along with an additional AA-MG and a hull MG.

The quad flak was fed by 4 clips (1 each barrel) containing 75 rounds each (300). The Wirbel wind had 3200 flak rounds in stock. The quad flak was operated by to pedal. Each pedal activated one MG on left and right. So the Gunner could shoot with 2 cannons, why the other were reloaded simultaneously.

The gunner could also fire all 4 cannons by simply pressing both pedals. Even then the firing span of the quad flak 38 was about 9 seconds (20 practical), before a reload was neccessary.

info links are already included at previous posts.

I hadn't really taken time for the Ostwind, though it used the old roundfed 37mm... Will be changed immideately
