on the subject of anti tank schtuff, i would like to make a few notes 1) the u.s. was the only country in the war that didn't produce an anti tank grenade, so a stick sock filled with compisition b explosive will do a nice job as well, never underestimate a clever soilder 2)along with the fire teams, maybe we should have anti-tank teams to eliminate the tanks and to help focus on teamwork 3)is there any way we could "place" a mine or a satchel charge onto a tank? there was some movie on youtube in which these german soldiers placed these anti tank grenades in the section where the turret met the chassis 4)there should be a way to disable a tanks treads or it's turret in order to cripple it, if it cant move, it's just as useless

America had Gammon bombs, which were pretty much just socks filled with comp b.

And for people that keep thing that the dudes in SPR opened that tiger hatch, watch it again, because they dont. The crew is trying to bail, and the guy climbing our gets shot in the face. Before the hatch can close again, he sticks his gun barrel in and holds it open. They dont just climb up on top of the tank and open up the hatch.

The gammon bomb was a brithish device, if we were desperate (because the devs deny that grease covered socks w/ explosives and a fuse wouldn't work plus it's to "unrealistic") then the MK. 74 would be the british and the gammon could be the american grenade, otherwise it would not work, there had been no use of the gammon by us forces TO MY KNOWLEDGE, if im wrong, feel free to let me know

To my knowledge these did not always fulfill their intended role as well as they should've due to the fact that the plastic explosive was excellent for warming up that cold ration...

afaik, american paratroops used it quite a lot.

plus you also sometimes have to accept the fact that some nations just dont have some things in FH. Its not balanced like that. Russia has no rocket AT weapons, japan has no self-loading rifles, etc etc.

AT grenades do dick all against late war armor anyways (even with african armor, it still takes 2 or 3).

Type 5 rifle mcgibs? Come on, that thing was so common, I can't believe the Japanese don't have it.

Woah, I leave this thread for one night, and look what happens:rolleyes: Okay, yeah, maybe the opening hatch thing is a bit far fetched. I didn't know about the sticky bombs (non-improvised British version) were already planned. However, I still think the improvised ones should still be included. Now don't say that I've got this idea from Saving Private Ryan (great movie though), since I've been at a WWI and WWII museum in England (can't remember where though, it has been a few years), and have seen these improvised versions of the sticky bombs. They even said that they were used plentifully during the war. I think in the FH2 game there should be a kit of which you can pick up (in quite large numbers, since it was often used in the European theater), and have a standard Rifleman kit, with the sticky bombs instead of the rifle grenade. This is just my opinion.

If they where used plentifully in war then we would have heard or read something about it so you probably confused it with something else. :uhm: Also the reference in SPR thats in the manual is also false because there is absolutly no reference to any kind of sticky bomb in WW2 training manuals.

There is no point in adding fictional equipment in realism game such as FH2.

2)along with the fire teams, maybe we should have anti-tank teams to eliminate the tanks and to help focus on teamwork

Thats what you got AT classes for, wich should be the only ones with AT weapons.

4)there should be a way to disable a tanks treads or it's turret in order to cripple it, if it cant move, it's just as useless

Not really, a disabled tank becomes becomes a fortification with a turret.

Lol, yeah, but it would just get frustrating if that feature would be included, and make the sticky bomb (Sock version) a weapon that you'd want to avoid using. You took that idea from Saving Private Ryan, didn't you? (Still a great movie though)
