just a wish I guess, who knows. The possibility of haveing an eng class that can build sandbags and put up razor wire. yes I have seen this on a rts however to translate this to FH would be awesome at a minimum. This aspect would increas hasty defensive positions and increase our realism index even further, just a thought.

Posting this in the clan forums was very smart indeed.

It would be a nice idea though.

Indeed, but apart from that don't forget the silly effects it had in DC. Sandbags were used to turn buildings into unentrable fortresses :cort: . But with a deploy time and the option to destroy sandbags and barb wire it may work. Then again I can't think of many events were people created a sandbagwall during a battle...

Well they did but normally they created it behind the front line just incase the enmey broke trough, it still could come in handy but maybe its not good to have it for the first release anyway.

Doenitz, it's pretty feasible; log, earth and sandbag fortifications were fairly frequently constructed at a tactical level a bit out of the way of the fighting. On large maps, this would definitely make a lot of sense (it doesn't take a lot of effort to get a bunch of burlap sacks, fill them up with dirt & sand, and throw them together.)

The only limitation would have to be (a) that you'd have to _get_ the damn things from somewhere (like off the back of a truck) and (b) you couldn't just merrily sandbag your way to the enemy base or something silly like that.

Well that would be my main concern: seeing unrealistic events such as DC style spamming of sandbags out of the blue in the middle of an onoing battle: soldier enters a house under heavy fire, wants some extra defense and suddenly pulls out a sandbag to (partly) block the staircase/door... being able to dig yourself in when you have the time and material is fine ofcourse. Same as having a single sandbag to hide behind in the middle of a firefight. But sandbag walls (1 meter heigh and 1-2 meter long) popping out of nowhere instantly while your ass is under heavy enemy fire? Just... no.
