1. For the eastern front, a Dshk heavy machine gun mounted on the carriage and gunshield mount, as either a fixed or (if you can do it) towed weapon

2. An option for AA shells in the 5 inch DP guns that appear on most ships of the US Navy. (Liberty Ship, Fletcher Class, Gato, and secondary on Iowa class) This was done in 0.7 with the 88, and 5 inchers are also designed to attack aircraft. Later in the war they received proximity fuzes, too.

3. The Iowa class or N. Carolina class when it is time to add a Battleship (I mean, come on, the PoW was sunk at the same time as Pearl Harbor and the Iowa class is a better match for the Yamato anyway)

4. Airbursting shells for later in the war, both AA and Artillery. These would explode when within 10m of a vehicle or the ground, and could act as an anti-infantry shell for arty or make the 40mm effective vs. fighters.

5. A scoped PPsh 41 :p

Reffering to the last paragraph of this? http://forums.filefront.com/fh2-suggestions/145209-suggestion-forum-rules-read-before-posting.html

Yeah, but those ideas all came to me in a flash and I didn't want to lose them. Besides, airbursting shells did come into play for Normandy. They were placed into production August 1942 and first released for use in airbursting artillery shells for the Battle of the Bulge.

But that's not normandy, that's battle of the bulge.

1. Airbursting flak was already in use

2. They might continue the campaign into parts of Germany, right now we don't know where this will stop and switch to another campaign.

Did you have a nice nap?

1. FH2 has gotten deployable mgs and mortars to work well, so getting the DshK to move seems possible.

2. I believe Carriers also had DP 5 inchers, and those would most likely have a bigger AA role than antiship or bombardment role, but they still could do it all. Besides, BF2 allows for multiple shell types.

3. Especially likely if we get battleships, as we don't have a nice ready made model from Dice.

4. Sounds cool for artillery (try hiding behind that building now!), but it is quite easy for the Bofors to hit the slower bombers and transports of the Luftwaffe if they are within range right now.

5. More like red dot sight. :p

I was thinking a 2x-10x optical sight with Vampir low light amplification and a semiauto, low, and high rate of fire, along with rifle grenades(submachinegun grenades?) and antitank rifle grenades, plus a selectable sound suppressor.

And I think the 5 inch guns were removed later in the war, and replaced with quad bofors(I wanna see quad bofors too!)

Yeah, the transports are easy to hit, but compare performance against fighters with a flakvierling 38.

Another suggestion-an alternate view for bombers could be a calculating Norton bombsite, that looks down and moves crosshairs across your field of view to where the bombs will hit(you try hitting a target accurately with a Lancaster or B-17 in FH0.7.
