Pansercheck 2 man . Time is good. Fun is had. Make more maps and Chingy be happy man.
Arisakaof course it's possible, but why do you want to reduce the options? a game doesn't become great by reducing variation. i for one don't want it to happen. since they're shared (you have two satchels, whether you use the 5 or 10s doesn't matter) it's up to the user to decide. the 10s is also less stealthy as it includes a shout.
Because people will then use the AT class more often By having the 5 second satchels, it will reduce variation of classes :)
Chinky says stop the moaning and knot in neck will fly away like butterfly.
whilst I couldn't be bothering to read all above posts, I was neither Impressed nor dissapointed. I was feeling like a bit of a sneaky thief for not having to pay for FH. Then after several hours of guilt, I deleted FH, BF1942 and burned my pc to the ground. I communicate via mind signals, from long ago.
Remember anti tank weapons are defensive weapons, best used when holding a position against armour.Arnhem is a great map for piat practice.
Heh, you kidding? The artillery cannon set up behind the building next to the bridge is able to blow up anything leaving it. Once the first tank gets destroyed, it's really easy, as the tanks after that are stopped by the dead tank blocking their way ahead and the artillery aimed at their side. It's a slaughterhouse! :p
Arisakamhm. i've heard that one. great story, bet he was in a rush! do you have a link to a more detailed page about that story?
No, sorry... all I know about that was what I've read here on these forums :uhm:
a bazooka should not be able to destroy a tiger from the front and now I understand about the crosshairs btw I noticed that fh realism changes the bar's slow fire to semi auto, that is pretty useful anyway, thanks for clarifying about the bazooks etc I still do not like the aircraft, and the ai and some vehicles(schimwagon, kettenkrad) have no engine sound the new flamethrower tank is teh r0x0r pwns0r however overall this mod pwns every other ww2 mod in history! (fh>moh, moh=terrible)
tvihYes, but bottom line is PIAT CAN kill the Tiger. I mean, how about that story about that one guy killing, what, 3 Tigers with the PIAT?
Well there is this Guy (And I know the British 1st Airborne did some major damage at Arnhem): Pte. Ernest Alvia Smith
Savio River, Italy October 21st-22nd, 1944 The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada [indent]Ernest Alvia Smith was born in New Westminster, British Columbia, on the 3rd of May 1914. He was educated at the Herbert Spencer Elementary School and the T.J. Trapp Technical High School. Before enlisting in the army he engaged in contracting work. He enlisted in the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada and served with that unit until the 13th of April 1945. For some time following demobilization Ernest 'Smokey' Smith worked in a photographic studio in New Westminster. In 1951 he re-enlisted in the Permanent Force retiring in 1964 with the rank of sergeant as a member of the Tri-Service Recruiting Unit in Vancouver and served as a sergeant at Headquarters of the British Columbia Army Command in Vancouver. He resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. Ernest "Smoky" Smith was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in November 1995. [/indent]Citation
'In Italy on the night of 21st-22nd October 1944, a Canadian Infantry Brigade was ordered to establish a bridgehead across the Savio River. The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada were selected as the spearhead of the attack, and in weather most unfavourable to the operation they crossed the river and captured their objective in spite of strong opposition from the enemy.
Torrential rain had caused the Savio River to rise six feet in five hours, and as the soft vertical banks made it impossible to bridge the river no tanks or anti-tank guns could be taken across the raging stream to the support of the rifle companies.
As the right forward company was consolidating its objective it was suddenly counter-attacked by a troop of three Mark V Panther tanks supported by two self-propelled guns and about thirty infantry and the situation appeared hopeless.
Under heavy fire from the approaching enemy tanks, Private Smith, showing great initiative and inspiring leadership, led his P.I.A.T.(1) Group of two men across an open field to a position from which the P.I.A.T. could best be employed. Leaving one man on the weapon, Private Smith crossed the road with a companion and obtained another P.I.A.T. Almost immediately an enemy tank came down the road firing its machine-guns along the line of the ditches. Private Smith's comrade was wounded. At a range of thirty feet and having to expose himself to the full view of the enemy, Private Smith fired the P.I.A.T. and hit the tank, putting it out of action. Ten German infantry immediately jumped off the back of the tank and charged him with Schmeissers and grenades. Without hesitation Private Smith moved out on the road and with his Tommy gun at point-blank range, killed four Germans and drove the remainder back. Almost immediately another tank opened fire and more enemy infantry closed in on Smith's position. Obtaining some abandoned Tommy gun magazines from a ditch, he steadfastly held his position, protecting his comrade and fighting the enemy with his Tommy gun until they finally gave up and withdrew in disorder.
One tank and both self-propelled guns had been destroyed by this time, but yet another tank swept the area with fire from a longer range. Private Smith, still showing utter contempt for enemy fire, helped his wounded friend to cover and obtained medical aid for him behind a nearby building. He then returned to his position beside the road to await the possibility of a further enemy attack.
No further immediate attack developed, and as a result the battalion was able to consolidate the bridgehead position so vital to the success of the whole operation, which led to the capture of San Giorgio Di Cesena and a further advance to the Ronco River.
Thus, by the dogged determination, outstanding devotion to duty and superb gallantry of this private soldier, his comrades were so inspired that the bridgehead was held firm against all enemy attacks, pending the arrival of tanks and anti-tank guns some hours later.
No! I'm Spamacus!
