A bit unbalanced with the germans having the only helo, a 1 seater. The US had this in service, how 'bout it?

the jerries shouldn't have the helo anyways so I see no reason to include this, lets start getting priorities straight, people are overloading the suggestions thread with useless stuff so the team cant comcentrate on important things.

Germans even had a helicopter capable of lifting 2000lbs. in Spring of 1944 and it as used on a few occasions to rescue pilots and recover downed aircraft.

So its not as crazy as one thinks.

If theres going to be more low-use/rare (and alpens) vehicles I think this would be a great addition. This thing was setup to be mass produced to so its pretty reasonable. Note that the R-4 and R-4b were NOT experimental, they entered service. The fist medivac was performed in burma in april of 44 by a R-4. It was also used by the british as the Hoverfly Mk I. http://tri.army.mil/LC/CS/csa/aahist.htm#Early There was some other's to such as th R-6 in service by 45: http://tri.army.mil/LC/CS/csa/r6001.jpg The use experimeted with duel rotor ones early on: http://tri.army.mil/LC/CS/csa/r6001.jpg Other ideas: *the p-80 shooting star us jet fighter arrived in italy to by end of war but didn't see action. (i guess coudl go on alpen) *Gloscter meteor,(yes I know entered service . isnt even that much of x-wep) the british jet fighter could be on map with player guided V-1 buzz bombs like a reverse bombing the reich? *On the ground I will suggest (as has been many other time) either Maus or the E-100. This was not just a experiment. If you read into it, it would have very much gone into production and have been formidable as a defensive sort mobile gun emplacement if given proper air cover. *Other misc heavy tanks that missed particpatin in ww2. (More 'out-there') *The Panther 2. THis is a little bit more Alpensteiny then the others, but still a equally impressive tank to-be. * US T-29. The us resposne to the KT. (similar to a kt spec-wise) had prototpes before end of war. Btw I dont mean the T-28, which is already in SW.. * ARl-44 a french heavy tank based on the Char bis but with a full upper turret. *P-1000, P-1500 ... x-weps of epic proportions. These are pretty way far out there

P-1000, P-1500 bring whole new meaning to land battleship.

Even if FH didnt do a Panther II it could still do a Panther F hull and a Panther schmalturm w/88mm L/71.

I would skip the T-29 and do a "Super Pershing" with the welded on armor plates on hull front and turret front and side and the 90mm L/100.

The problem is that the moment the Maus comes into FH, the mod will lose the entire community of forumers from 0.5 due to mass suicide (we all said a secret oath the maus would never come into FH while we were alive ;) :lol: )

Yes, and my weak memory tells me that the devs didnt want it either, they would quit then.
