ive been playing lots of bf2 the past few days, its still a little bugged but thats why there are patches. one of the best features i thought in game was the supply drops, it makes people more strategic and take cover when they need ammo if it lands in the middle of the street, and plus, both teams can use it i was just thinking if supply drops can be put into .7? is it possible to change the bomber kits so they are c47s which will drop supplies instead? it would be more realistic because supplies ended up being dropped to enemy as well and make it so your team will have to move to the supply drop set inorder to get ammo or health i think this will be a neat feature for all the maps cuz there might not be enough room on the small maps for supply planes you can fly, it wont have to replace all the ammo boxes but get rid of some to stop people who stay up in a building and camp there throwing grenades wadaya guys think?

Yeah, i really love the absense of old supply crates at bases. Makes you rely on your team for ammo, which is good

There are already supply drops in FH on certian maps (the JU 52 and skytrain) These are great for certian maps mainly paratrooper maps or useful to drop on a defensive position but with the ammo boxes around the flags the dropped ammo boxes are of little use. What i am wondering is if in FH2 the ammo drop will be just given to the commander or if supply planes will be used again or both.

i meant making those bomber kits into supply planes instead of bombers, that way if theres a small map where you cant fly a supply plane or no airfield, u can use the kit to call for a supply drop i know there are supply planes already like on breakthrough

heh, not for .7 (waaaaaay too much work. would have to overhaul every map to take out the boxes, and put in the kits)

But for FH2, supply lines will be quite simmilar to this. There's three ways to get ammo. First, the supply depot found at the main base (also repairs vehicals and houses pickup kits) second, commander ordered supply drops (essentually the same as bf2, exept you can shoot down the plane. player controlled tranport planes can also drop supply crates like in FH1) and thirdly, from trucks (which will be the main supplyer.)

Will there be infantry supplied ammo, like with bf2's support class, in fh2?

Laugh. 0.7 I hope bugs to be fixed and it generally to be "finished." I don't expect nor do I particularly want whacky new complex ideas in the last release. Hmmm, about supply drops: Could the C_47 or whatever drop 3 boxes instead of 1 in tight grouping, each with a different speciality? Medical, repair, ammo? It would keep Commanders from dropping the repair crate directly on blownup artillery, would also have the possibility of 1 or 2 of the crates landing on a rooftop or in the drink.
