hello this is my first post i hope its a good one! :naughty: it concerns heavy AA guns like the 3 inch battery the flak88 and the japenese 75mm you know how hard it is to kill planes with them but in real life the rounds had fuses they didnt explode on contact with the plane they were like reversed depth charges eres some pics (at the bottom of the page) i dont know if this could be coded in FH2 but i think it would make a awesome addition we could set the fuses with the arrow keys just like how we switch different types of ammos just my thoughts...... b17flak.jpgMissionFlak.jpg

most AA rounds (the big ones) have proximety fuses so you don't have to set them manually with any arrow keys (not unlike the Brits in the beginning of the war they had to choose the right round with the correct fuse).

Also i think FH has this already, the flak 88 can be set to AA mode but then again you don't see a nice flak cloud when you nearly hit it :(.

even they don't have i think the game is coded in the way that every soldiers are TRAINED that means some very minor technical things should be excluded...(just say, how do you use ironsight.. or how do you push the pedal of a jeep...)

Prochkorovka, wolfserver, a while ago, I was in the junkers 87 and a Russian got into the 88 and as I maneuvered, the 88 shell exploded under the fuselage draining me a quarter of the way towards destruction. It made a huge explosion, and a very nice dark cloud around it, I must say. But in the end, the splash from the 100Kgramer got him. [quote=Eatlead;3705233]i dont think they had proximity fuses until late war

From some site that I got from looking up the 88/128mm guns from wikipedia, they talked of how much more effective the 128mm/all their heavy guns along the bomber killing lines could have been if they had had proximity fuses. I mean they took a heavy toll once they found a plane but they could have been much more efficient killing machines.
