Beast of War I would prefer the vierling also....so much more firepower, these things always rip up low flying aircraft in seconds. Maybe the devs fear unbalance making this very efficient weapon mobile......it would be very efficient against the fighterbomber tank rape in many FH maps though.....

Yeah.. exacly why i want it ingame, the flak38 is pretty much crap.. I have serious trouble with the Ostwind. And those halftrack things are to damn weak, they cant turn when at any speed and they turn over pretty fast.. and again they cant take MG fire. EDIT: that whore would be you eh maniac? :p I probably suck with the ostwind cos i have a crappy connection or something, very rarely do i hit something.. with a vierling i can just spam in the general direction and destroy all :naughty:

:lol: I have that same problem I can't hit shit with the ostwind, which may be due to my limited FPS. On the other hand I have seen some people who are very good with it. Too many times Have I wasted a German Tank with a steep rocket dive and pulled up way into the clouds and seen a little puff of black smoke and then my engine cut out and burst into flames:mad:

It looks like all agree that the Wirbelwind should be in the game right?

If the Wirbelwind was made, you can bet your life that someone would start moaning, because it is too powerful, i for one am personally against it's inclusion in the mod, i think maybe the Sd.Kfz.7/1 should be in more maps, that would be a better trade-off.

SkipsterThe Ostwind isn't sucky, (well, except for that stupid view-blocking bar)

Press the forward view key a second time when using it (as you'd use a tank scope). It gives you a raised view above the bar, so it wont obstruct the view. And I personally love the Ostwind. It's pretty quick, can handle light vehicles/infantry if need be, and is awesome for "ambushing" unsuspecting planes. Just make sure you move it every now and then, otherwise a pissed off bomber pilot will make it his mission to blow you into very small pieces. And if you're exactly where he expects you to be.... you're unlikely to win.

Vierling needs camera shake. that might balance it out a little.

No it would not....that "thing" is undrivable......it is hardly ever taken out of it's spawning place, and if someone does, it is never very far......these things hardly ever leave a base.

Road handeling was already bad when it towed a FLAK cannon, but without it, it still drives horrible.

Just like all (partly) wheeled vehicles the turn radius doesn't corrospond with the steering front wheels angle out of the vehicle. Road handeling of the sdkfz 7 feels more like pushing a stone brick without wheels over the ground, then like a vehicle.

No doubt they didn't turn on a dime, but skidding over the steering wheels ? I doubt it.

:lol: The Sd.Kfz.7/1 cant turn worth anything like stated above.. The thing turns over about as fast as the American Halftrack apc, it cannot take MG fire, and you cannot use it on the move. And personally i dont care if the wirbelwind would be rather powerfull because finally pilots would have to watch out and be afraid of ground fire eekx.gif, they will have to be carefull! and not roam about the battlefield with no fear other then other planes.. P-lease, to powerfull, the 1000kg bomb, THAT is to powerfull. [/rant]

Wirbelwind too powerfull ? Any other tank can blow it up with 1 or max. 2 shots. And camera shake to the Vierling is very unrealistic and isn't nessecary.
