Idea: German 'U-Boats' must destroy the British Supply Ships, just like it was in the Early War.

British Have like 2-3 Supply Ships which they can spawn in and they have to go from one end of a map to the other (where their docks are). When you arrive there, the computer counts it as a one run and they have to keep doing it until they reach a certain number of runs, and while this is happening, their tickets are bleeding quite fast.

On the other hand, German Naval Forces spawn in their 'U-Boats' and have to keep destroying/sinking the Supply Ships to prevent the British from resupplying their ground forces in Africa. They have to do it until the tickets reach zero. Also, each sunk Supply Ship would take off 20 tickets (just an example).

Last note: This is just an objective idea for a good Africa(First Release) map. All number and etc. are given as just examples. I hope the FH2 mappers/Devs take a good note at this, as I think I came up with a good idea. :)

p.s.: Inspired by the 'Hunting Battleship Yamoto' thread. :)

We're one step ahead of you: Escort mode for FH2. :smokin:

That being said, though, it's a good thing to have the two discussions separated. Now we can discuss a naval escort map here and keep the truck ambush discussion to the other thread.

I like the idea, although I think the Germans should have some surface ships, too, not just submarines. What about German submarines and Italian Destroyers (but then there'd be the problem with voices again:() against British Destroyers and US ASW planes? If we can get some cool weapons like pattern-running torpedoes, plane-dropped depth charges, Hedgehog cluster ASW mortars and K-Gun depth charge throwers, I'd really like the idea!

I suggest you download Project Reality and see how they've done their Extraction maps.

Voices should no longer be a problem - Squad Leaders, Commanders and Grunts all have different types of voice, perhaps this code could be used to give say the Italian classes Italian voices and German classes German ones. Is it possible, oh great devs of wisdom?

Almost all the Mediterranean naval battles I've read about (in early Africa campaign) were Commonwealth vs. Italy. Although I only read them from Wiki. I think naval battles would be fun.

Escort is not what I'm talking about. Well it sort of is, but it's more of just swim to the base and try to bring as many ships as possible to complete the objective.

I'd like to see a mediteranean map with a Queen Elizabeth battleship. If we can get the Italian navy "in" at some point, we could have nice naval battles. What about a "battle of Cape Matapan" map? At night... :smokin:

Nice idea, craka. But don't you think that sort of gameplay belongs to handygames (should not sound offensive, but it does, sry). :smack:

More likely I`m looking forward to have something like "Rheinuebung" in the mediterranean sea. British vs. Italian fleets, like the battle of Cape Matapan in 1940.See:http://users.swing.be/navbat/toc.html

But I'm aware of the fact that won't happen for the first release, cause to create everything for a naval battle is taking much time.

I`ll think about it, mate. Here in germany, we say: "2 silly guys, one idea" if something like this happens.

Komrad_BI'd like to see a mediteranean map with a Queen Elizabeth battleship.

Thatd be funny if we had an "Escort the Queen" map. Germans would get sniper rifles and motorboats and have to snipe the queen while shes drinking tea on her boat! British would all get zooks and would have take down all the motorboats. :lol:
