I've seen quite a few posts in these forums disagreeing about the German support class (in FH42) armed with the MG34/42 as their primary weapon. I went to the Imperial War Museum in London on Saturday and in one of the exhibitions they showed footage of German troops advancing - one of which was firing an MG34 from the hip...

What was the argument? If it was about the unlockable thing it's in a thread just below this one.

I think what Mr_Cheese means is the MG34/42 crosshair spread is too fast in FH when standing. Even if it's possible in real life, it's simply too unbalancing gameplaywise, it would be a very accurate and powerfull ranged weapon as well as an effective close combat weapon, the crosshair spread is the only drawback at the moment. Though i wouldn't mind reducing the maximum spread, not just for the MG's, it's ridiculous not to hit a truck sized target 5 meters in front of you, no matter how fast you're running.

It was probably part of German propaganda actually. It's very impossible to hit anything while running and firing an MG34 or 42. Sadly that's just the truth. I would have given my troops time in the cooler for pulling that stunt on the real battlefield.

Yeah, it was more an idle observation than a post with a point - I was just wondering what people would make of it... It got a few replies though...!
