just introducing this idea into the collective, not an urgent suggestion.

how bout having the katyusha launchers that fire light rockets and are optimal for use against infantry? this wold be in addition to russian gun artillery (which i hope will be featured in FH2) able to take out the heavier stuff. is this a silly idea? or am i on to something? YOU DECIDE!!!

Do you mean commander controlled katyusha barrages or player controlled katyushas? Either way Im all for it, this is one of the coolest vehciles in FH IMO (although I dont recall killing anyone with that thing:p ) and if the devs decided to leave it out completely, I would be very, very dissapointed.

I think there should only be one kind of Katayushas.

I would also like to see German Nebelwerfers return and the US rocket launchers appear.

The US had a rocket launcher almost identical to Katayushas and were mounted usually on 2.5 ton trucks and Dodge 3/4 ton weapons carriers.

I think you are refering to the 114mm 4.5 Inch T-27 E2 rocket launcher. But they didnt appear until december 1944 though. More then 2000 of these where produced. But are you sure they where mounted on trucks? And how common was that?

However, i wouldnt mind seeing the Panzerwerfer though. :)

All of it. More and more I am finding willing artillary spotters and have been having a blast firing from the main allied base in Valirisk. They have plenty of hiding places and Its always a good time!

The T27 Xylophone was first used in the Battle of the Hurtgen Forest by the First Army which converted one artillery battalions. Fired 8 4.5" M8 rockets from back of Studebaker or GMC 2.5 ton truck.

T27E1 was a ground based launcher firing 8 4.5" m8 rockets.

T27E2 fired 24 4.5" M8 rockets but was very late war.

The US manufactured 2.5 million M8 4.5" rockets.

The M66 was introduced in the last few months of the war but fired the 4.5" M16 rocket. The M16 was designed off the German W.Gr.42 210mm rocket.

The T-44 rocket launcher was first used in Normandie and the Marianas by the Marines.

The T45 was the version mounted on a Jeep and fired 14 4.5" aerial rockets.
