I think if there was to be a "train map", it'd feature the the Germans defending the train(much like a ship) against a British or American aerial assault. Though, how do the Germans win? Do they shoot down all the Allies to 0 tickets, or is there a destination they much reach? If there was a destination, the problem would be the size of the map; if the map was not large enough, games would probably end before some people even finish loading the map(a problem that I currently experience when playing Forgotten Hope).
trains are possible in bf1942. i remember a while ago a mini mod came out that featured a monorail. say ima try it out today and see if it works great.
CamBobf1918 coded trains am i right?
Yup, check this out: http://www.battlefield1918.de/forum/?do=showthread&id=538 Also I had posted about these trains and railroad guns on some other thread. This model of a railroad battery from http://www.aopt91.dsl.pipex.com/railgun/Content/Models/N%20Scale/n-centrics/n-centrics.htm (which has more train models so check it out) one looks very nice: German 5.9" "Gneisenau Batterie" Crewed by naval artillerists, these guns were used as secondary batteries on "Spee", "Gneisenau" and "Tirpitz" class warships. Enclosed in an armoured turret, they provided medium artillery support on the western front Ok I'm precipitating over here... we still don't have working trains even but just giving suggestions for the future. :) I'm really eager into trains and other railroad vehicles. Mainly because it would be totally new stuff that would be added to the game never seen in vanilla BF1942 and it would rock so much..
wow! but didnt the germans also used the dora? i look forward to use that.hehehehe
I must say that I think a battle centered on an armoured train could be excellent.
As the train would be essentially a mobile fortification the fighting could be very dynamic. Assuming of course that care is taken with the placement of the track.
By the way, Moldie is quite right the standard of the modeling on both the digital and scratch built models is fantastic. Kudos to whoever is responsible.

What would be the advantage of that monster over, say, a 150mm leFH18? Would it have better range?

maybe 15cm guns. :eek:
rice_crispiesmaybe 15cm guns. :eek:
isn't that the same thing as 150mm? 10mm/cm...
I guess naval 15cm guns have an advantage because of longer barrels.
