I would be kinda cool if tanks had an openable/ closable top hatch.(Mabye controlled in a manner similar to landing craft doors in FH1942. When open, the 2nd player would be able to use the mg, or look around with some good old fashion binoculars. And since he'd have a better view of the area, mabye he could have a special com rose(or whatever that thing is called.) to give the tank driver specific commands and point out threats. ("PANZER SIGHTED!!!" sherman goes boom.)
On the negative side, driving around with the hatch open could run the risk of having a resourceful enemy tossing a nade inside, killing the crew or even someone jumping on top of the tank and spraying the insides with good ol'e smg fire. Perhaps enemy models could have actual seat posistions inside the tank much like they do when sitting in jeeps, planes, ect. Allowing them to be killed.
Heck a knowlegdable AT rifler might even stand the chance of piercing the aromor and nailing someone with a shot.:0wned:
Anyways that's just my 2 cents.

It's an tempting idea but I´m guessing, as you mentioned above, that all the actual seat positions would have to be modeled inside the tank and this would require lots of more work for the devs. Also, there is the lagfactor.
Dicussed umpteen times the answer is "No".To hard,not realtsic.DONT base it off SPR!
what it's not possible to drop a nade into an open hatch? I've never seen SPR.
And I've read around where there have been cases where an infanmen have thrown nades in tank hatches so it's not the most unrealistic thing around even if it wasn't to common. But then again, a single german piloting, spotting, aiming, shooting, re-loading, and manning the coaxal gun of a king tiger by himself was probably alot less common.
I meant 2 hard to code and MOST hatches were closed.
Tanks locked their hatches when going into dangerous situations.
Even if some might not have, lets assume all tankers in FH are smart enough to do it, so no.
Maybe sometime in the future.
I think whether or not the tank had it's hatch open varied from situation to situation. There are instances out there that talk specifically about a soldier droping a nade or two into an open tank hatch to kill the crew. And even in FH .7 there are tanks that have open hatchs to allow some one to use the secondary gunner posistion.
But yeah mabye in some future release :) we can always hope.
Doesn't this already work on the Stug 3G? I mean tossing a grenade down into that open hole where the machine gunner is does seem to do a bit of damage. The hard part about that would be actually getting a good arc to throw the grenade in. Seems grenades like to hit the top of tanks and somehow fall clear through them to the ground.
