Yet another suggestion (man I'm bored today):

It's great how ammo crates can run out of panzerfaust/bazooka rounds. What would people think about restricting the amount of ammo (if any) that tanks can get from ammo boxes?

It seems a bit odd that a KT or Priest or whatever can load 50+ big, heavy shells from some dinky box that just happens to be lying around the countryside. Instead of giving tanks fuel, why not just restrict them to rearming from trucks or munitionspanzer (like in Day of Zitadelle) or something like this?

Not a bad idea. I don't think this will limit many tanks (other then the IS2) simply because it isn't that common that you live long enough to use up all your ammo.

Maybe you could have a ammo dump at the main base for reloading, for added impetus it could be made destroyable. In most cases tanks would have withdraw from battle to rearm once they had expended their ammuntion. Will the destruction of ammunition trucks in FH2 result in a bigger explosion than they currently do?, that way people would be more likely to keep them safe.

I'd love to see an ammo truck have a bigger explosion. It could be a good suicide vehicle.

Im not worried about a larger blast radius for Ammo trucks but I would like to see tanks require a ammo vehicle or have to go back to base to reload.

I like the idea of maps having few ammo boxes but have ammo vehicles that would be needed to resupply from.
