Will we see these weapons in the future? :rolleyes: or is it a big no no no, never..
Flame throwers seem to be a graphics engine problem. The team has already modeled at least one sticky bomb--the Gammon bomb that was used by British troops and some American paratroopers. Sticky bombs would be great, since that's kind of how people use expacks now already, anyway. Btw, both of these suggestions have been made many times before.
I don't know about sticky bombs but I know that satchel charges were in use which I think would be a better replacement for the expacks for the engineer kits. Sticky bombs would be better as a pickup kit.
Sticky bombs yea some were used like the gammon bomb but I want magnetic mines especialy for the germans they used them ALLOT.
Well, if they figured out how to make sticky bombs then magnetic mines wouldn't be a problem since they both just stick to tanks.

Not my Tiger I !!! It's got a nice coat of Zimmerit!
I'm not sure as to how much the US and Brits used the sticky bombs, but the germans made excellent use of magnetic mines. Either way it would be nice to have something other than those stupid expacks since you have to trigger them yourself. A nice mine would have a timer, or activate as soon as the tank moved very fast. Whatever the engine prefers.
i asked this at the teamspeak-chat with the devs at fragthe.net last friday. the answer was that it seems to be pretty hard to realize this "sticky" thing with the bf-engine. but they are testing several possibilities but can't make any promises yet.
Bf:V is going to have sticky bombs, isn't it? hmm

What about that kind of explosive what was in Speed movie. Activates when you go fast and explodes when you slow down. :lol:
actually magnetic mines were designed to go off whenever metal came within a certain distance of the mine (no more tanks squeesing by a couple inches on mines) infact i saw on the history channel about a magnetic mine a stuka saw gonna drop near England but got shot down and washed up...the engineers had to strip all the metal from there clothing and work with thier hands (no wide spread plastic tools) to get the bomb dismanteld
but anyway yes the zimmerit coating is a god send if they incorperate it, it basicaly negates the tanks magnetic field so that magnetic mines wouldnt pick it up
