I like Flippy's suggestion it would make it feel like you were really taking pictures of enemy movements.

Stray03;4175985Why do you laugh at the marksman kit flippy? Sure there wern't true "snipers" during the war but I still find it one of the most effective kits when team play is involved.

You seriouslly dont think there were true "snipers" in wwii? Simo Hayha? Or Vasily Zaytsev??

They were more marksmen/sharpshooters than a true sniper as we know them today. The were mostly infantry that had an above average accuracy. they were given a crash course that gave the basics and then they went into the field and gained some experience.

Now everything from factoring in humidity to survival is taught in sniping schools because the sniper is considered a bona fide weapon of war.

Maybe as you know it... Yes sniper tactics and weapons are more advance. But "true snipers" came way before wwii. "A sniper is an infantry soldier or other serviceman who specializes in shooting from a concealed position over longer ranges than regular infantry, often with a specially designed or adapted sniper rifle. A sniper requires skill in marksmanship, camouflage, and field craft." Sniper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I wonder how many people know that the co-pilot can call out arty positions. And for that matter how many times has it been used as such. I fully understand the main argument against the uav in wwII, and I agree with removing it from the scout plane's abilities. Maybe the pilot and the co-pilot responsabilities can be combined so the pilot calls out arty at whatever he is flying over.

Hmm, i think you misunderstood him. The snipers we got ingame arent really snipers but (Designated)marksman. Which are related to snipers but never received any real sniper training but had higher then average marksmanship skills. They rarely if ever operated individually.

No True Snipers? Did you know that a Highly Trained British Sniper team was Hired for an Assasination Attempt on Hitler, and they were withing 100 yds of the man with a sniper rifle before they were seen and gunned down by SS.

I think its quiet the opposite. I dont usually see snipers working with squads. But there were snipers in WWII and even WWI. And there are people who play the "sniper" role in FH2.

I never said that there where no snipers in WWII or I. Its just that most of the time most so called Snipers in games are more or less Designated Marksmen simply due to the tactics they use, and the equipment, among other reasons.
