Just a simple suggestion - to implement the caliber of the different weapons in the hud, diameter and length. This will give the players who haven't studied the details of each guns in WW2 a good idea of how powerful their gun actually is. The tanks already have it when selecting different ammunition, but for the many weapons that don't I'd like to see a static piece of text reminding you of your guns power.
I quite like this idea actually.
Maybe I'll take a couple minutes and add the caliber size to the weapon icons, beside the name.
Awesome! I like to hear my suggestions are being appreciated, even more implemented.
I didn't make it!
I think you should have the caliber AND mm of each round, so that some noob isn't like "ZOMFG I HAS 45 MM ROUND, ME PWNZ U"
It sounds like a good idea on paper, but what would be the point of it. Pretty much all small arms can take down a player within 1-4'ish hits so knowing how powerful wouldn't really help. And as for tanks I'm pretty sure you can tell even from playing vBf2 that a rifle isn't going to kill a Panzer.
Immersion? I like the idea as well. Just so you know your bullet type, like a soldier would. For instance, I have no idea if the Welby is a .38, .357, or a .22 (seems to be the latter :p).
Edit: WHOOOPEEEE! After almost 4 years, I have 1,000 posts.
Hehe...I just felt my e-penis grow!
I'm sorry...but I really, really don't see the point in knowing that your K98k is 7.92mm....

No you don't becouse you already know that and this fact is so obvious to you like that sun rises in the morning. For others unfortunately it isn't. I think it would be neat just to learn (knowledge is power!) a guns caliber and having fun in the same time even if it doesn't give you any advantage.
i like this idea! so people would know how powerful is a stg44 compared to MP40 (for noobs)

Noob would think that 9mm is stronger than 7,92mm :I
