Smoking SquirrelIn maps like Market Garden and Breakthrough the amount of AA guns should be increased. I know its too late for Fh 1 but for Fh2 its good to remmember this. In Market Garden i always take the Typhoon and it was getting to the point were i would kinda feel bad for the other team. I didnt want them to leave. They should get a mobile aa gun or two. In Breakthrough the allies main base has only 1 bofors. Since axis planes on that map cant kill tanks the next best thing is to go for the airfield and one bofors is not enough especially since axis have like 4 Vierlings and Ostwinds. Same goes for Alpenfestung one bofors and that aa tank thing is not enough especially since axis planes cant kill tanks on that map either except for the Arado.
I understand and agree but the problems in implementing them are more a question of BF engine then AA or planes. The problem is the fog distance. IIRC it is like 400m. Since the planes in BF are only seen during the time they are in that 400m radius you cannot give the AA realistic fire properties, thus you make them more effective. ATM the planes are at an advantage (usually) as they know where the AA guns are and can drop the bomb on you without much risk as you only have a horribly short time before you are dead. To add more AA might unballance it to the AA side.
IRL Viewing distances were high and AA was quite unexact. While I would love to see this in FH2 as well (it is possible but I doubt the mods want to change the system, understandable) we need a ballance. Though I fear it is not possible without revamping the system. Same with tanks btw.
pvt. AllenIn maps like Breakthrough-1944 where both sides are on attack there is no need for large number of AAs since mainly planes should counter opposite planes. So in this case mobile Ostwinds might be enough as they are very powerful. Bigger numbers of AAs could be used in assault maps where one side is on defence and ofcourse if they had big numbers of them.
Uhm iirc there are (were) like 3 axis fighters vs. 6 or 7 allied fighters. if 3 axis planes equal out the allied planes you still have 3-4 allied planes... and hitting them with AA is not easy and thus those hurricanes can destroy any tank they come across.
the american AA tank (m19) is enough on alpenfestung, there are no jets in the air when i have that god tank, and then it rapes infantry even worse than the ostwind does. m19 is the most uber vehicle ever. Ive had so many ppl get pissed and leave kuz i kill them in their jets on that map (= give me one of those on every map and ill give u alot of pissed of spawn raped german inf, and alot of grounded pilots lol.
