For this past Christmas, I had gotten some books about the German Army, and as I was pageing through the pages of these books, I noticed that a number of soliders used their spades (shovels) as melee weapons (as many of you may already know). And I started to think how the some of the soliders in FH use their spades, i was thinking that with the random generation engine, you could make a skin, where a spade is shoved through the soliders belt, because in some of the pictures, and in the literature that I read, many soliders kept their spade in their belt for fast use. And also, many soliders tucked their grenades into their Jackboots, i was also thinking that you could add that into the mix, again just a thought, something that would add a little bit of realism into the mod. (these ideas would be best used in later year maps)

The shovel idea would be wierd because when a soldier gets out his shovel, the shovel is still in his belt. I'd rather see more important things implemented first (like more AI support). :)

very true on both, I guess its really not that importent, but i still wouldn't mind seeing it implemented. But I do see how it would be wierd for the guy to have his shovel out, and it is still in his belt.:D

We need more melee sounds, that's for certain. A loud swish for those Japanese swords and a satisfying thunk for the shovel. But those are also minor details.

Nah, I reckon a nice 'dunnnk' noise would suit it just fine. Unless of course, you're using the less flat end of the garden appliance, but I wont go into detail incase I sound like a psycho.
