FactionReconIncorrect. Read up on your history and you might be a little shocked at what you're advertising.

For all we know his (SS) tag could stand for anything from "Super Snipers" to "Silver Serpents", right?

By the way, what the hell is "speach"?

goodies like the sniper rifles or light machine guns as kits are fine, i remember maps like omaha with dozens of snipers - *grmpfl* :mad: or some others with 2 thirds of the axis players with an MG42

there were many discussions about the kits and i think they are fine now - leave it as it is plz, also for fh2

Last time I checked snipers with a magnified scope were relatively rare in most instances (except Stalingrad of course). You can call someone a sniper even if they don't have a magnified scope. So therefore if this is a realism mod, which it is, having a magnified sniper rifle as a spawnable kit isn't very realistic. I 100% agree with the devs decisions when it comes to sniper kits.

IIRC rifles with magnified scopes were relatively rare in most instances (except Stalingrad of course). A sniper doesn't need to have a magnified scope in order to be considered a sniper at all. Therefor if you were to make the sniper rifle with a magnified scope a spawnable class it would not be very historically accurate and last time I checked FH is one of the most historically accurated games out there. In my opinion the sniper rifle hype is one of the most arcadish things found in most games, I mean sure they were used but they weren't as widespread as most games make it out to be. To sum it up, Sniper spawnable kit = Noob, arcadish, unreallistic, and lame. Sniper pickup kit = Realistic, fun, and promotes teamplay.
