While went drunk home yesterday, I`ve got an marvelous (hopefully manageable) Idea. I`m very for stealing enemy tanks because it gives this game much more fun and also more tactical deepness. But I also understand that`s not realistic especially for guys who sensless bail out in the middle of a fight to save their smacktardasses. Here y solution: Why not give the engineer the ability to make tanks ingestible for allied troops and uningestible for the enemy one? Let me explain: A tankbattle. Somebody bails out of the tank + the enemys retreat or were beaten . Only a few tanks were left back. You have now the task to give an engineer the command to capture the tank after a few seconds for the own troops (or for himself) and everybody else must save the surrounding area. The enemy can also now only recapture the tank with an engineer. What do you think about this?

The idea is great, really, but I don' t know if it is possible to code. If it is possible it must be done!

Yes it is a great idea, the only thing is that the enginear himself will most likely not be able to comand the tank because if i recall the devs are trying to only make tanks and aircraft only entereable and usable by a tank comander or a pilot class so your idea could still work its just that the tanker would have to call for the enginear to get the tank working for him then take off in the captured enemy tank, still i like the idea, it also stops some guys just coming behind the base and taking a tank any time but still leting us get those tigers and what not.

I also think the capture time should be different for tanks, trucks, apc`s etc...

No thanks, though i love stealing tanks in Soldiers: heroes of wwII, i just cannot justify it in FH, it just works as a unbalancing force, and besides realistically no allied soldier would be stupid enough to drive around in a vehicle with enemy markngs.

Tank commander: Looks like Fritz made it after all with hi King Tiger! Look! He is looking at us with his turret! Let' s wave him back! Tank Driver: What did he just say? Did he say "fire"?

So we equip engineers with a bucket of paint.:naughty::naughty::uhm:

Very good idea !! :) :bows:

> Yes, but if it's not an engineer, but a tank crew (he is specialist of tank, so for him it's possible to capture tank like in Call Of Duty UO, when you take ennemy tank !!!), why not ??? It's really oblige that it was an engineer ?:uhoh: But only for tanks and planes, because car and trucks, it's very easy for everybody to capture them... Just more few seconds to capture ennemy trucks ? And must funny and realistic, when we capture ennemy vehicle, put on them an flag of our team, or german cross when we are german >>> like here tankgg0.th.jpg

162eRIIt's really oblige that it was an engineer ?:uhoh: [/quote] Yo, I think so, because the tank crew is only trained to handle tanks, not to retool them. Also I suppose they hadn`t carried the right equipment for this job :nodding:.

162eRIBut only for tanks and planes, because car and trucks, it's very easy for everybody to capture them...

Agreed. I only thought about light armored cared cars/apcs like the M3A1. And I also think it shoudn`t be possible to capture enemy planes. That sound ridiculous in my opinion.

[quote=162eRI]And must funny and realistic, when we capture ennemy vehicle, put on them an flag of our team

Would be cool, If possible. But not neccessary, because on a great distance you woudn`t cognize the emblems.

I've see about captured T-34 on the eastern front, some modification of the silhouette and the turret tank... so on great distance, tank crew cognize their own tanks. But it's for T-34 (and some other tanks...) I don't know about captured africa tanks (only they painted the emblems, and put a flag). But if it's possible, it's great to make it... Because fight on BF2 are rarely on high distance, maybe it's possible to see the flag (but it's hard to see the emblems ^^). The captured "Stuart" is a good idea for FH2 ( i think they catch it to the british ?) capture11.jpg This one was modified t-34_turret_15.jpg

Africa front ! capture2.jpgcapture6.jpg Six german cross :-) ............ lol capture12.jpgcapture9.jpg
