I know the Me-163 used the X-4 anti-aircraft guided rocket. It was wire guided via a signal from the plane, and was devastating against the few bombers it went against. Any chance we might see them for FH2?

I hate how we get FH2 and everyone wants to see all of these special planes and tanks that were hardly ever seen in combat. I dont want to see any guided missles. I want FH2 to be the same as the last one with more improvments to the gameplay and realism.

I would like to see your proof that the Me-163 carried the X-4. The X-4 was tested on Fw-190's and tests were intended for the Me-262 but the war ended and was never used operationally.

Meh, it was a thought. No need to get on my case about it. I believe I remember hearing on the History channel, the 163 used X-4s, but if there's no proof, forget it.

I'd rather have one of the remote (wire or radio, depending on type) anti-shipping bombs used (!) by the germans. They were used from around 1942, i think.

I have no proof, but in the game Secret Weapons over Normandy for Xbox, one/two of the missions have Me163s in them. They eash carried 4 X-4 missiles. Lemme look for a screeny... 1059575699.jpg In this one you can see the thrust nozzle for one sticking out from behind the starboard wing. 914639_20031010_screen003.jpg

In this one, there are, clearly, 3 X-4 missiles under the wings. Again, this is not really proof, but it begs the question where did the idea come from? I think that this just adds a little more momentum to the these did exist swing.

Why not just do what was done with alpenfestung? Have one map that has all that experimental weapony goodness a lot of people enjoy, and leave all the other maps realistic for the realism buffs out there. Seems like a simple compromise. Look at how happy people are with Alpenfestung right now.

Yeah, but Alpenfestung is getting a little too "mutilated" by the secret weapons in my opinion. Sure I'm all for a 20% chance of 1 of the Komets there spawning with rockets but how would you use it? Like a flying Wasserfall launcher or something?

Anti shipping bombs would be more sensible, they were used more.. Did the condor carry them? Would be awesome to own some ships from a high altitude with those things :naughty:
