The Fi-156 doesn´t have a rear gun on FH2.I suppose the had... That would prejudice the spotting?Maybe,but there should be a way to spot while not in am mode...

Cadyshack;4591214Perhaps allow the pilot call for arty using the looking down view. It would eliminate the second spot (how often do you actually have a 2nd seater actually spotting) and it can take away the unrealistic "fly spotter plane to flag and have SL passenger jump out."

good idea. i agree

[quote=Cadyshack;4591214]Also, making it that easier to spot means more spots for arty (which can be a rarity), and they could be better than normal spots (more accurate).

Yeah, I noticed that people hardly ever spot for artillery (or use it when you are trying to give good spots as Recon). Today, I played a whole round in the artillery and I was getting spots, the only problem was they were not accurate at all so I didn't hit a thing :(. I tried to adjust but it's hard. Other spots were just in random places in the middle of nowhere.

Personally i wouldn't mind a historically accurate spotter plane for the British, either a.) A Westland Lysander, or b.) a Taylorcraft Auster.

I like the camera shutting sounds. Without them, I wouldn't be checking my minimap when the spotter plane spots something.

Wasn´t the Lysander a bomber?

Yes, Lysander was used for that role too, but so did almost all transport planes such as Junkers 52 when there was lack of proper bombing equipment.

I didn't say that Lysander was not used for bombing, but it was not specifically designed for that/it was later on seen to fit other roles better and bombing became just a side role.

The Lysander was an Army Co-operation aircraft, as such it carried offensive armament, it could be armed with bombs, but it was certainly not a bomber. Fully armed the Mk.I and Mk.II was armed with two fixed, forward firing Browning .303" MG's (one in each wheel spat), one Vickers K .303" MG in the rear of the cockpit and 8 20lb bombs (4 attached to two stub wings, each fitted to the wheel spats), though the maximum bombload was 500lb.
