my suggestion is simple: one hit kills on infantry regardless of hit location. if you get hit with a high velocity .50 cal round or equivilent you are out of the fight no matter where you are hit. you take it in the leg, you no longer have a leg. you take it in the arm, you have no arm. these things are not regular rifles and im tired of hitting a guy in the gut with one and him not going down. if i had it my way that shot would make his torso explode but alas, the engine doesnt support such spectacular gore. there, thats my rant:smokin:

I do agree to a certain degree here. One hit in the arm, shoulder or leg would make you fall to the ground. Meaning if you get hit you will have to fall to the ground if you get hit anywhere around the heart or head you are indeed dead.

at the velocity the round travels at (FRIGGIN FAST), all the energy is transfered to your body. this causes a limb to be torn from the torso if hit by such a round, it is just that simple. no man can fight if his arm or leg just got blasted off.

I agree, one hit from a AT rifle should kill a person whereever it hits.

things brings up another interesting point...when hit by a bullet of any calibre..the player should stumble/stutter to show that he is infact hit..mabye if its a 50cal/20mm shell they playershould get knocked to the ground?

Agreed.

Except the PzB.39 fired a very high velocity 7.92mm round, not .50 caliber or 20 milimeter. The idea behind that round was it would impact the armor at such a high velocity that even if it itself did not penetrate, a large chunk of steel would break off and rattle around the fighting compartment killing the crew.

IMHO 1 shot kill with a AT rifle is not a given.

AT rifles usually fired a slug of very dense metal. A hollow point or soft lead bullet would hit and deform thus transfering hydrostatic shot to the target.

A AP round made of dense metal is not likely to deform and even fully jacketed rounds in pistols are known to punch a hole in people and go out the other side.

This doesnt mean you would not take damage, but in game terms depending on location it is not a fatal hit.

Well hell, one shot with that Finnish 20mm AT rifle should do anyone in, but thats only in FinnWars. Oh well, at least the M2 is a one hit kill weapon.

That Finnish AT rifle IIRC is a modified version of the Swiss Solothurn and fired a APHE round. I think it was also a contact fuse so yes it would be lethal to people, even a near miss would be deadly due to shrapnel.

it dont matter if the bullet deforms or not. the fact is that AT rifles fire at extremely high velocity and would cause a wound so bad that the soldier would immediately be evacuated and, if not given immediate morphine, die of shock.
