i hoped the FG42 would come in as a counterpart to the PPSH. but it seems that the germans dont have the FG42 on any map where it would be needed. i saw it on prokhorovka .. but this a tank-battle-map .. so it is quiet useless. we need the FG42 as a standard weapon on all maps with PPSH ! i will not play any maps like stalingrad as long as the germans get no weapon that is a match for the PPSH-lamers ... because this a game and i want to have fun playing it ...

Millions of PPsh 41s were made and less than 8,000 FG 42s were made (hell 8,000 is a bit too generous). So by logic which one should be more common?

You can heal your self from the brink of death by standing next to a Medical Locker that has some bottles and bandiges in it and can repare a M4 Jumbo by waveing a wrench at it :-|

The PPsh was handed out like halloween candy to the Soviet troops. The FG42 was mostly given to elite troops and airborne units. Since this is a realism mod, you will see each weapon used more or less proportionally to the distribution of it during the war.

Not everyone gets to be the sniper, King Tiger commander, FG42 para-infantry unit...

? No? The PPSh is not that much stonger anymore. (Compared to the other MPs) It has little damage, a high RoF and worse accuracity than other MPs. The Fg42 on the other hand is hands down the best handweapon in the game, good stoppingpower, high RoF, enough accuracity. Oh, and hte FG is not a MP, it's a full sized light machinegun like the BAR, only just a little bit more modern. (Lighter, faster, better design overall) Do you talk the same about a map where a Tiger is up against med allied tanks?

I also see the FG42 more along the lines of the BAR and Bren support rifles.

Still, I have yet to use it in combat since its not very common on most maps.

The only issue I have now with the MPs is that the STg 44 is still pretty inaccurate and not lethal enough over distance. Also its RoF seems lower than it should be (500 rpm), compared to the other MPs (Sten: 400 rpm).

i always here people takling about millions of PPSH. but if you want that kind of reality, why not on maps like "Fall Weiss". in reality the polish army were simply hunted down. they were chanceless. but not in this game because we need balance. so why is there no balance with the weapons ? it seems the "reality" is always on allied side .. and i am not sure what you have made the FG42 for, because i have not seen it in use yet ...

Crete and possibly Italian maps are pretty well the only places that one would see a FG42 in use during the war. Besides, I've yet to talk to one person who's fired it that doesn't think that FG42 is a hunk of junk.
