This is just something I'm thinking about for FH2 on wondering how certain guns will be reloaded. Now this may also apply to guns that probably will appear in later releases.

Lee Enfield rifle, G43, SVT40 - Should it be sticking two clips of bullets into the top of the rifle, or just simply replacing the mag on the bottom of the rifle?

Submachine guns - Pull the bolt, replace mag, then push the bolt back? Or replace mag then pull the bolt?

As I understand it, the Lee Enfield did not have an easily detachable box 'mag' as you put it. This I know for sure. The G43 (not G41) and SVT40 had magazines that I believe were designed to be removed and replaced, so I imagine they will be reloaded as such in FH2.

Well, it's not a hard job to detach and attach the box magazine on my No4, but then again, wether it was used much, is another question. I belive that they would use stripper clipps in FH2, rather then switch magazines, as the stripper clips were certainly more common. Maybe we get some cool animation with that :)

They did have detachable magazines, but it was also possible to reload them with 5 bullet stripper-clips. The SVT40 used the same 7.62x54R ammo as the Mosin Nagant rifles and the G43 used the same 7.92x57 ammo as the K98. So understandably these stripper clips were much more common than the detachable magazines and soldiers issued G43's would normally only get 3 magazines (10 rounds each) and 6 5-round stripper clips. This way they got the same 60 rounds as soldiers with the K98.

Of course, I don't know if it's possible to have 2 seperate reloads for one weapon. And personally I don't think it would be worth it either. It's probably best to keep the magazine reload, as they are easier to make and also more familiar with most players.

I think BF2 can only have one reload animation for a weapon (unlike say, CoD) so you'd have to just do ..one. I say keep it how it's done in vanilla. Make the reload animation as if you're reloading from a completley dry mag

I did see this one youtube video where this guy loaded clips from the top of the G43 rifle

Let me clarify - as I understand it, British riflemen were given a rifle and lot of stripper clips. So they did not detach the box mag, they simply reloaded the clips. G43 and SVT40 troopers, however, were given extra magazines. However I imagine this depended on supply situations.

Afaik, the no4 does not have a detachable magazine (it doesnt have a mag release), this feature was removed after the smle mk3, which did have a detachable mag, but was seldom used due to lack of supply.

in any case, UK soldiers were not issued extra magazines, so they wouldnt be able to swap them even if they wanted.
