sheikyerbouti;4868922...If you look at the FlakVierling 38 in FH2, it fires 4 separate streams but I was under the impression that only any 2 of those 4 streams would actually have projectile properties at any time....

Ah, now I understand - we've got two guns out of four shooting blanks! Then I guess I understand why no one wants to bother with the work it would take to put a gun in game that is only 50% as powerful as RL. That is a tragedy.

Hey, devs, let's shift over the the Half-Life engine! Don't you just drag and drop FH2 files into your Half-life game file? Problem solved! :rofl:

There's lots of upside to the BF2 engine, the problem is that it is still very user-unfriendly and takes much longer to learn than 42 did. I was speaking more to the point that there are other, smaller weapons systems that are just as cool but overlooked because of their bigger brothers hogging the limelight. The more I learn about Normandy, the more my mind opens to all the weird and wonderful innovations that we could see instead of the tired old retreading of the same basic vehicle suggestions. I completely agree that certain iconic elements need to be included on the basis of their importance. The problem that I see is in devoting finite resources to make things in demand, only to find out that they weren't worth the time expended. More than anything for Anti-aircraft guns, I would love to see multiple batteries engaged by a single player. For example, a guy enters a nearby spotting table (like command radio) and can then roughly guide a number of Flak guns onto a target and fire at his whim. Say it's a battery of 4 guns, from the central position your aiming point would be epicentral to the guns in place. As you lay the guns, it would be incredible to be able to fire the salvoes off at your discretion in a singular fashion.

Speaking of not using AA guns for air defense, anyone ever see the pics and video of a Flakvierling on the back of a SdKfz.7 that was BACKING towards a village with troops flanking it?

Heh. Neat idea. Can you find it?
