I just saw the screens of the Pz III in FH2 - they look great (as usual :p)! I was just wondering if, since the turret hatch is open, there would be a commander's position with his head sticking out the top? With BF2's ability to fire weapons while riding a vehicle the commander could use his binoculars while in that position.

I think that is a excellent idea. Most FH tanks have a turret position already, having binocs would allow the commander to direct the fire.

I wonder if the Panzer IIIN will have the extra armour on the mantlet removed by the time the first release is ready? I know Rad said something about it a while back.

The guy in the top position would have to stick out, but he can duck inside the turret like the BF2 tank's machinegun positions.

Great idea!

For the version of the Panzer III that had smoke grenade launchers, allowing the commanders to pop smoke would be really nice. XWW2 has this in their Panther and Tiger I (possibly the Tiger II, can't remember) and it has saved my skin a few times.

*evil grin*

Yes... EXACTLY like that...

That is obviously FH2 though. Is that also going to be in 0.7? For that matter, will the other tanks that have smoke launchers have this capability?

No, for 0.7 you'd require to code it first. There is no time for that. In BF2 the tanks already have smoke grenades, so you can just copy the code.
