Hey guys , don't know if this was discussed before but... all you realism junkies out there ( And I know who you are!(myself included)) you might want to take a gander... Well, I don't know if this will fly or not but...I was maybe thinking you guys might want a little variety thrown in the handweapons ( Or possibly even vehicles, but I think there is enough of that already) For example , different versions of the MP40 would be nice to see, depending on what location and time the map is... As you can see the FH2 MP40 does not look like your typical MP40, the purple-ish hued metal lower receiver part is a nice, interesting touch for changing the look up a bit. I was thinking maybe you guys would like to add in the MP41 at times even... Of course, I am not sure on whether how often it was used or not, but it sure does seem like it would give the gun a really sweet look! I definitely am a big fan. mp41_1_shop.jpg MP41 marushinmp40_shop.jpg MP40 marushin_mp40_abskit_shop_ww2.jpgFH2 - looking MP40 More examples , such as the different versions of the FG42: fg42_typeii_shopwwii.jpg FG42 Mark II fg42_shop_wwii.jpg FG42 Mark I Or even different types of the German Luger : LUGER6in.jpgPOST WAR P38 · 1942 PP · 1934 PPK · WAR TIME P38 · 1986 PPKS · 1994 TPH · P5 · P88 · P99 Or even Mauser pistols for sidearm variation purposes: C96-5_.jpg Guns like the thompson had many variations: THOMPSON6in.jpg I don't know if anyone would want to take the time to go into such detail, I'm sure this kinda thing is something that does not matter... but i've been told I have a real eye for detail, But if youre going for that realistic feel, this would be something you devs might want to consider... thus far I've never seen a game that would go into that sort of detail, and it probably means a tad bit more work but... you know, maybe something in the future for people to look forward to. Thanks for your time.

I don't know, I don't think it had a name because it was not official. It didn't see much service, the Mauser C96 worked as an automatic coversion but the luger failed due to too high rate of fire, it must have been impossible to hit anything with.

I think it's called a luger artillery model.

THat's just a normal semi auto luger, using the snail drum used in WW1. The Germans devolped the 32 round snail drum for the trench combat, since most german soldiers were taking to carrying 2, 3, or more pistols. The more ammo, the better.

Ah, now is when you need someone who actually has these and knows what they are, Luger-wise. If you're playing the standard german infantry, you'd have a 4 inch standard issue. The 6 inch Luger is called the " Naval Luger " , I don't believe I have to explain who used those, lol

The 8 inch Luger is called the " Artillery Luger " , used by artillery officers and such. So putting these guns in any map would be in fact making things less realistic. The simple fact is that the Lugers were more popular during the 1st World War, at this time the Luger was one of the only semi-auto pistols available. ( The others being the Colt 1911, and the Mauser C-98 ) During WWII, the Germans had a vast array of sidearms to pick from, including the Walther P-38, having captured the FN arms plant in Belgium the Germans made the venerable Browning P-35 High Powers, which is actually a modified version of the Colt 1911. This is why you see so many High Powers with Nazi markings floating around the gun scene. And back to the Luger. By WWII, manufacturing of Lugers had become less and less imposing. The Luger was simply too complicated to make and the gun's mechanism itself isn't the most reliable. ( You need a VERY powerful load in your bullets to operate these guns well! IE: I use 7 grains in mine ) The P-38 being more reliable and cheaper to make would be seen more often than the Lugers. Oh and the 6 inch, 8 inch and shoulder-stock Lugers were basically only used in WWI and by Swiss police.
