Some vehicles and weapons I would like to see eventually

1. Hawker Tempest, the high altitude fighter they designed after the Typhoon failed miserably at that job. Also known as Typhoon 2.

2. Petlyakov Pe-2 dive bomber. 11,000 + built

3. P-39 Airacobra and P-63 Kingcobra, the fighter with the rear-mounted engine. This allowed it to pack a heavy nose armament of a 37mm cannon, as well as 4 .50 cal. mgs. Good performance at low altitudes, used extensively by Soviets via Lend-Lease, including by Aleksandr Pokryshkin, with 60 kills to his name.

4. Polsten or Oerlikon 20mm AA gun used by British.

5. Allied heavy AA guns, similar to 88mm Flak and Japanese 75mm AA, such as Qf 3.7 inch AA gun, 90mm AA gun, and 3 inch AA gun(for Pearl Harbor).

6. Super heavy AA guns, just for the shits and giggles: 120mm M1 AA gun, 12.8cm Flak 40(look at the Flakzwilling 40, 2 on a SP AA Chassis), 10.5cm FlaK 38.

7. US. 37mm AA gun.

8. British Rocket AA

9. Allied Rocket Artillery: Land Mattress, RP-3 for mass shore bombardment, Japanese and American systems.

10. 155mm Long Tom Gun as well as BL 4.5 inch Medium Gun, sick of allies getting 105mm guns or 85mm guns to german 15cm guns in FH0.7.

11. Radar predictors and proximity fuzes, as well as calculating gunsights on appropriate fighters and bombsights on bombers.

It all sounds pretty good except for # 2 and 11. We haven't reached the Russian fronts yet and I'm not sure which one will be next. Also I'm not sure how well the engine can handle proximity fuses but I know radar is defiantly a possibility.

Other than that I'm sure we'll see these things if they are needed in a map.

I'm sure we'll see all that ingame soon, and most of those are incredibly obvious (when we get to late ostfront, imma be pushing the P-39 for quick inclusion, that's for sure), however once again, these are things we know about.

One note though, the 128mm was usually mounted in flak positions in german cities and flak towers in berlin. I'd like to see them too, but only in those places in which they were used.

Why does everyone name their theads with the same gordamn name?

I can't tell whether this is the "Couple of Suggestions" from today, a week ago, or five months ago... :uhm:

I'm pretty sure most of the (few, multiple, many, bunch of, etc) suggestions will eventually find their way onto the proper maps though.
