we had this discussion some time ago and actually hartmann promised to add a refill to the ammoboxex. but now i read again that the ammobox have limited ammo. the problem is just that the tanks spawn without limit and you get the same amount of ammo on servers with 100% tickets and on servers with 1000% tickets .... how is one side supposed to stop enemy tanks without tanks, when they have limited ammo and enemy has unlimited tanks and 2000 tickets ?

Yeah, I know it sucks !

Abnother thing is the amount of players on the server. With 32 players an ammo box might last a good while, but with 50 players, a box in an important position will be drained within minuits.

Having a fixed amount of ammo for certain weapons just dosn´t fix into a flexible and open game like BF/FH.

Aperantly some people disagree.. why not just remove all reloads for Fausts and other AT weapons since "when you spend your faust you did your jobroll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif" right? Even when the faust glitches trough a tank.. or just DOESNT kill that m10 that you hit in the side.. Yeah, just hide for the tank you cant stop EVEN THO YOU ARE A-T CLASS.

Let's put it this way - in good servers you'll be dead if you camp an ammo box...

you must use ammo trucks to resupply vehicles in that situation. I dunno, they might refill ammo boxes too but im not sure.

Ammo trucks are not the solution. They're WAAAY too flimsy to do the job. You don't drive ammo trucks to the front, man, they just get chewed up. They're great big relatively slow moving targets. Come to think of it, so are the APCs anymore. Such a shame that APCs are so useless in this game.

Once uopn a time in FH the APC's healed people and reloaded tanks and they were used quite a bit. As of now they are nothing but taxi's and sometimes its safer to walk.

Either give us back the APC's that heal tanks and reload them or give us the munitionschleppers. Whether the APC heals people and Tanks will be debated no doubt.

That's what the ammo dropping trucks are for. Need more of them on maps

The only problem with this is, while a very sound idea, if you remember BG42, the APCs ended up being nigh invulnerable, them repairing themselves as quickly as you can damage them. Maybe it won't be a problem with FH... maybe it will but it certainly is a good idea.

Those trucks are useless when you are trying to defend a flag against armor, since they are the first thing to get blown up (if they dont blow up by themselves) by attacking forces (planes/tanks/afv's). Why did i pick to be AT class? because i want to be able to bust tanks, not spend my faust on one tank (might not even kill it, if it does any damage) then spend the remainder of the time hiding for the big bad tank to go away with no means to fight back . Its absolute Bulllcrap that the limit is that low, especially on the bigger servers. Why bother putting a 15 round crate there on a 52 player server that lasts for 1 hour? its not enough. It only affects the german forces, because the bazooka/piat rounds never seem to run out. For the love of fairness.. more fausts, less suggesting "bring an ammo truck".
