Almost all tanks in FH had a bow MG in real life, yet it functions only in a few tanks in FH. Is that meant as balance, or will all tanks that had them ( have them modelled in FH ) have them added in FH over time ?

Furthermore the BG42 mod uses a Wespe with a MG on top for close defense, wich is very valuable, my experience is i often get attacked by infantry close range when firing in a support role. I saw real WWII photo's of Wespe having a mounted MG for close defense purposes. Will FH add MG to vehicles that historically carried them ?

The Preist also had a MG in the "tower" thing on the front.

I can only assume it will be added to all the tanks in time. I certainly hope that's the case :D

Me too. I wouldn't imagine it being that much of a problem. One driver/turret controller, one turret gunner, 2 riders.. that's 4 out of a maximum 6 per vehicle. So they could technically put bow gunner positions AND a behind-the-turret gunner like those crappy jap tanks have.

Life as an anti-tank engineer gets a bit more challenging, and a whole lot shorter :naughty:
