Today, I was playing Rheinbung with my a clanmate. While capping a flag, I hit the pole, and thought(And seeing him on the bow reanacting Titanic), "Imagine a Norway map with iceburgs." I was thinking in the future rease of FH, do you think we will be seeing some Iceburgs, that will damge ships?
Ofcourse the map ended nicely with us wining, and my "loyal" admiral, taking an LCP, and driving to "port", and leaving me in charge of the submarine Hood. :p;)
i like the idea of ice burgs damaging ships, it would be great to try and navigate to not hit one of them. But maybe some people will try and recreate the titanic and sink every1 onboard, or try and shove otehr boats into them, still it is a good idea.
While were on topic, i´d love to see Icebears on the icebergs...
Btw, does the word "lag" mean anything to you ? Is there any proven story of a WWII Battleship that had to navigate through icebergs in a battle ?
Why would it be lag, if they were put in they would most likely be static and not move, on the other note not sure if any ships ever hit an ieburg, but is very possible, i doubt there would be polar bears on the ice if it is included.
It could be a bit of land Josey, not everything lags in a game. If it were land, just make the land white, and very damaging to vechiles. A map in/near Norway, could invole some iceburgs, or maybe some trouble in the Atlantic, or Russian ships in the north trying to defeat Japan in a sea battle.
Well there's always the arctic convoys to Murmansk and Archangel...

I think big warships didn't have that big problems with icebergs, since they have pretty thick belt armour that would prevent them ripping up the whole side like Titanic did. (Maybe not prevent, but probably reducing the effect) Also I guess the warships were alot more maneuverable then some fat ass passenger steamer.
Erm, "fat ass passenger steamer"--the Queen Mary did 30+ knots in 1938.
