Now I'm not sure if this is a bug or not. But I notice when ever you take the enemy team's kit, you get your helmet but with a medic symbol on it (at least the British do) And the actual medic kits do 'not' give you the medic symbol D: I'm wondering if its a joke in homage to FH1 so if you see a medic symbol don't shoot its a teammate :P etc. I'll try and take pictures if I can, but I've noticed it on numerous occasions :O

Yeah, I was wondering about that. I kept seeing British soldiers with the medic symbol while holding a K98. I was thinking, was there a super medic kit with a K98 somewhere around there?! Interesting to know if this is an intentional thing or not.

This still bugs me :P The pickup medic kits don't have medic helmets, but when the british pick up a kar98, they get a red cross on their helmet :| The germans do not however. Hope they get one too, or an armband, the white medic helmet just screams 'shoot me' lol

Oh, and same goes for the pilot kit. It looks just like a normal kit on the ground, but once you pick it up, THEN die, you see that is is a parachute bag (ala FH1, which looks really nice, but is bugged :( )

I was quite dissappointed by the medic kit. The Luger and Webley are really low on ammo. If it would have some more magazines with it, it would be a useful kit but I can't defend myself with that kit :p

I'd be happy with the same amount of clips that the Tank Crew gets 8)

What about a rifle for the medic instead of a pistol...

I thought this was some interesting info for the topic: WWII Medic Helmets and Markings Though the Geneva convention directly set rules concerning medics in 1949, there was a set of unspoken rules for the Allies and Germans. It appears they were not directly targetted, with most deaths due to an inability to distinguish them from other troops. If they had a firearm at all, it was only to be used in the defense of their person or their patient. This practice was later implemented directly into the the convention's rules of conduct. The Pacific was a different matter, where allied medics were specifically targetted. --------------

That would make it to powerful :p And plus most medics in WW2 only used sidearms during combat.

Maybe give the medic a rifle with one or two extra clips...
