Artillery can turn, mg tripods can turn, why don't PAK cannons turn ???

They are generally pre positioned much better then DICE did in the disastrous RTR expansion, but they NEED to be able to be turned around like other artillery !! Or else tanks or infantry easily outflanks them and kills the helpless gunner......

I agree. On "The Storm" Paks are very easily outflanked.

They were added last minuet because on the 1.6 patch, so they didnt have enough time to code them. Jackle's Pak isnt skinned yet, so they wernt going to have any in .6, but because of the 1.6 bf patch, they were able to at least have placeholders until the FH model is compleated.

Ah...that is a relief, so they will be able to turn in future versions. :)

hell, why post thousands of new thread even if the answer is so self-describing if u just think a little bit about the circumstances ? i didnt know exactly what mcgibs posted, but after my first use of the pak i thought .. hmm maybe it doesnt turn cause its from the patch and they didnt had time to code it ... but some people are just too lazy too think, i guess, and love it to posts those things in forums and whine about it ... phew ... maybe i just exaggerated too much, sorry guys ...

yup. We were buggin heartman about them during the last internals, but i think he had way too many other things that needed dealing with (mainly the CTDs from the 1.6 patch) that it got overlooked.

I often do not know what to think.......when those PAK's cannot turn, it could also be a well considered choice of the devs....

I mean, no allied tank STILL has a bow mg gunner position, while all models do show them on the outside. As RL allied tanks ( or all tanks in general ) did have bow mg guns, it is a choice not to add them.....( no explanation was ever given why not )

I did see the Priest suddenly did got a top mounted mg ( although the guys that uses it is standing up the DICE way ) wich is great ! Those mobile artillery really need that kind of close defence. But it was a choice, apparently not to give the Wespe a top mounted mg. In real life, all Wespe carried a MG34 in a box inside the fighting compartment, to be mounted on the gunshield or deployed outside the vehicle when needed.

I cannot tell if the devs forgot about things, or deliberatly left them out. That is why it is unreasonable to "attack" poster that ask questions about ingame things they run into, that seem odd.

Ever heard of the word "beta", well it means not completed yet, at least in the case of FH. So be patient .

Well , I agree with all you guys how it sucks that they don't turn but like matyast said,it's a beta. Oh,what I would love is something similar to the 88 towing, a pak towing!yay.
