King_ParliamentI was really pleased by the presence of lend-lease armor in FH, but I was disappointed to see that many weapons shipped to the Russians were not represented. Lend-lease gear was something that the Russians likely would have functioned just fine without, but it was everywhere, and with startling variation. A couple early-war tanks that were forgotten in FH was the Grant and Lee tanks. While the soviets came to abhor them, they were a major part of early war lend-lease aid and providing more to the "Armor Wall" in Kursk, and their total lack (particularly in the Africa campaign of FH) was suprising at the least. And of lend-lease small-arms. Bazookas were something surprising but nice to see in FH, but the lack of Tommy Guns, Stens, Enfields, Colt .45 handguns, and even a Johnson 1941 or two was a little dissappointing. I'm perfectly aware that the Russian production of PPSh 41s and Nagant rifles was excessive to the extreme, but early war battles saw scattered presence of western weapons, while late-war battles saw virtually none. I'd imagine having these weapons avaliable in maps representing early stages of Barbarossa as pickups (albeit in small quantities) would be an excellent way of representing their minor but noticable presence.

:cry:

Tears of joy! Why can't everyone post like this?

I agree. Lend Lease weapons should make a larger appearance in FH2, especially with the Russians. Remember kids, just because it sucked doesn't mean it should not be in the mod. Case in point, the Boys and thermos grenade.

Anzacas, that's pathetic. First of all, they just took that from Enemy at the Gates, to give the feel of playing the movie. Second, you never cite any product whose purpose is entertainment for historical fact. CoD, despite being a great game, is not where to go for information on history.

i'd rather have some new equipment to play around with then some lend-lease stuff which makes FH feel like BF1942 1.0, all i would see is the same rifle in every map except for a different skin with a different voice now and then.

Some soviet Lend-Lease vehicles i'd like to see: M3 Grant, M4A2 Sherman (mid/late), M4A2(76)W, T48 57mm GMC (SU-76), M17 M-GMC, M31 TRV, Churchill III/IV, M3A1 Scout Car, M2 Halftrack, Of course most of these vehicles in one form or another will probably be modelled for use by the other Allied Nations anyway.

Compared to the PTRS and PTRD, the Bazooka was about as common on the Russian battlefield as the Panzer II was at Normandy.

Russia recieved less than 1,000 maybe even as little as less than 500 bazookas. They recieved more PIATs than they did bazookas.
