sauron, the green gun on Fall Wiess is NOT a 84mm gun, it is a Bofors AT gun, it was also called the 37 PstK/36 its a 37 mm at gun (from www.winterwar.com)

'[BFEPetru']You can try out linked field Artillery Batteries in the new BFE:WaW Campaign #8, we'll be unveiling our new linked 105 batteries quite soon :)[/QUOTE] One example: [QUOTE=PanzerAce]sauron, the green gun on Fall Wiess is NOT a 84mm gun, it is a Bofors AT gun, it was also called the 37 PstK/36 its a 37 mm at gun (from www.winterwar.com)
Type 35 84mm Howitzer: The main Brittish artillery piece since World War 1, the Brittish version of the Howitzer was much less powerful and much more inaccurate than its United States counterpart. The shell fired by this gun was 3.3-inch calibre (84mm); the shell weighed 18.5-lb (8.4kg). It had a maximum range of 6,525 yards (5.96km), with this distance being covered in a little over 12 seconds. The gun could elevate to 16 degrees above horizontal, which meant that its shell had a fairly flat trajectory. This design proved to be an excellent gun, and was the main field artillery weapon employed by the British Army, and the mainstay of Divisional artillery. A Mark II design came into service in 1916, with an improved recuperator (the devices by which the gun is returned to the firing position after the rapid recoil produced when firing a shell) - the mechanical part of the gun that suffered most in conditions of prolonged firing. A Mark IV (III was not used) came into service later on, which had a faster loading mechanism, and allowed elevation to 30 degrees. With a good crew and conditions, this gun could fire at an incredible 30 rounds a minute, over an extended range of 9,300 yards (8.5km). The gun weighed 2,821 pounds (1.282 tonnes). Ammo: 123 shells This is the one we have in Forgotten Hope...
What the hell are you talking about? That is the Bofors 37mm at gun, and I was wrong, it was used by the Brits(aswell as by the Poles, Finns, Romanians), atleast in North Africa. It was naturally not designated wz 36 (like on crete), that is a polish designation wich means version 1936.
[QUOTE=Cpt.SaUrOn]One example: Type 35 84mm Howitzer: QUOTE] What? That is clearly a small caliber AT gun. Probably 37mm. Anything else but a howitzer or any other 80+ mm caliber gun. Besides, when you shoot with it in Fall Weiss...it's clearly an AT gun. LaDigue
ok, sauron, im going to make this as easy as possible for you: This is the gun on Fall Wiess and Crete: This is the 37 PstK/36: looks pretty similar huh? maybe its because THE GUN ON FALL WIESS IS IN FACT THE 37 PstK/36. ok? gun test it on fall wiess if you really still dont think so. notice how the shells have little in the way of explosive power. it is an AT gun, not a howitzer. also take alook at the trejecotry of the shell, not exactly your typical slow, heavily arched howitzer trajectory is it? nope, looks more like a AT gun trajectory to me.
Russian A-19 122mm for Stalingrad would be my first perference.
I know more artillery is a horror to bunnyhopping infantry
Wow,is it just me or Beast always mention the "bunnyhopping rabbits" in all of his topics?.... You have a great obsession with bunnies... Probably because beasts eat bunnies.
Yes Beast of war has some weird obsessions :lol:
1, Latex Shorts 2, Bunny Hoppers 3, Anything to do with planes being bad. 4, Soft cheese and Plastic Toys
Some of these obsessions are harmless others are disturbing.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Now that is a beast of a weapon! Would also love to see it.
urseus - Make the artilery 2 seaters ie you can only either shoot or drive at once, but when 1 person gets in it noone else can. So many times have i gone to the effort of getting artillery ready, only to have some asshat drive me to the front like a taxi and get me killed. Is this possible at all? This will stop people stealing me, and prevent people using the arty as a tank.
I think it would be possible to make the driver's seat unenterable from the outside. This way, if there's anyone firing the artillery, no one can enter it. Or perhaps you could give the firer a "handbrake" (sticks in the ground, preventing the artillery from moving) controllable with the up/down keys.
