yea the duster was "standerized" in june 1944. http://www.wwiivehicles.com/html/usa/m19_gun_motor_carriage.html However It didn't actually get to see service till the final months of the war.

Its not to be confues with m42 duster which wasn't till after ww2 but was the same basic design but upgraded. The m16 is definately needed at some point i agree. I tried it out in BG42 and its pretty handy for covering tanks.

Later war Allies had the Staghound AA and the Crusader AA. The Crusader AA is cool by having 2 x 20mm or later 4 x 20mm in a special turret.

U.S. dosen't have any Staghounds in FH maps, and Staghounds suck nuts at AA. Most people use them to take out infantry while supporting a tank column. The SDkfz222 would also be good for that if the lower 60% of the screen wasn't blocked by the cupola. New view position please?

Anyways I think the M16 would be a great addition. Probably not all that difficult to do either. Just take a halftrack, gut the back, plop a vierling on there, take away the sheild, add ammo cases, reskin, new sound, BAM! Instant M16.

I think BG42 made the M16 because the M19s weren't actually completed until after the war was over - even though they were 'standardised' - and so were never transported to Europe (first combat was in Korea). BG42 has the M42 Duster in the BG-Vietnam mod so the M19 doesn't appear in BG at all, even though it was made by DaCrapper and is used in FH.

You're already driving it from the gunner's position (something not even Dice sunk to the level of doing with the Flakpanzer in SWOWWII), how much less realism do you want?

geez splitting control is NOT a realism issue. As has been pointed out many times, in rl the crews were coordinated by a captain something thats not possible in FH.

Its better the that vehicle be properly controlled, after all a crew of two is STILL not the correct amount and where the vehicle will not even perform as realistically (in a coordinated way).
