Anyone feel it is a bit too limited? Personally, I think both of these are bordering on uselessness because of it. I can't imagine they were both like this in real life, although I'm sure someone will educate me :)

What do you guys think? I would like to see them have larger firing arcs.

I'm assuming you mean vertical motion. In that case, I think they are probably about right. You have to remember that in real life you could adjust the angle of the tripod legs to make up for rough ground. This sort of complex motion is too much for the game engine too handle, thus the lowering of the lafette is about the best you'll get.

I really meant the horizontal motion, as in left to right. I feel it is way too limited.

They both can swivel 360 i think? The Vickers can for sure anyway.

You know you can move it with the ASDW keys right? The Vickers cant move like the Laffette though

The lafette, irl, only has 15 degrees of horizontal motion, otherwise you have to turn the whole thing. Its a limitation due to its recoil device which can't be set up well into a 360 mount. However, its not hard to turn the whole tripod, both irl and ingame.

Hmm, that could be the reason.

I'll give it a try, thanks guys.
