Did you guys ever consider to have fuel levels for airplanes? Like the German Natter Rocket plane in Secret of Weapons but obviously with a much more longer "time". I was watching a show about "Messerschmitt Bf-109e vs Spitfires" a few days ago and they were saying that one of the problem that Messerschmitt had in WWII (especially in Battle of Britain), it's that their fuel became empty very fast. Although their fuel was a disavantage, they had a better weapon for dogfighting which is the 20mm Cannon (I believe) against the Spitfire's Browning 303 So I thought to myself: wouldn't it be an awesome addition in FH if the Spitfires had a weaker arnament but a better fuel level while the Messerschmitt would have a better arnament but a weaker fuel level? It would be a tricky way to balance it but it would add realism and diversity to the game. To refuel you would either have to land in a specific place or maybe the pilot class can have somekind of "fueling" weapon a bit like the wrench.. hmm.. Anyway, did you guys ever consider airplanes to have use fuels and all?

That would be excellent :beer: And they could get fuel from hangar and some kind of little "fuel station".

if you did it for planes then you would have to do it for tanks/jeeps/apc etc, otherwise wheres the realism? and that has been discussed many times, and to no avail. I dont think it would help the game any, it would just be an inconvenience.

The problem is, that in BF you're not flying for a long enough time for the fule to drain enouh that it would be a great concern to be refuling.
