Will the Germans ever get a 105mm artillery piece? Or will the Japanese, for that matter?

And will all sides ever get a 150/155mm artillery piece?

And will artillery batteries ever be placed on all/almost all maps? The Allies have the 105 Howitzer which can sub for the Russian and British versions, but the Axis have nothing. Pak40s and Flak18s were high-velocity AT cannons and weren't really used to lob shells like a howitzer was.

FH is steadily working towards effective indirect fire becoming a mainstay, with .66 having useful mortars and such, but they're still lacking the most common artillery piece of WWII - the 105. It needs to available on pretty much every map, and there should be multiple ways to spot for it.

I enjoy playing artillery and I mainly play the Germans so I would really like to see more artillery added to the FH German arsenal.

As it is though, BF1942 sucks with the way artillery is done, any random boob and a fixed artillery piece can cloud shot whatever the hell they want.

Personally, I get sick of this kind of rapage on Nordwind, those of you who sit in the Howitzer batteries and point and shoot for each flag on the map. :wtf:

Edit: AND I cannot even hear the shells coming in, shit just explodes all around me. :(

Give them some time dammit. .65 just came out. I'm expecting an incremental patch coming soon to fix some of the bugs in .65.

Er. Right dude.

The FH team doesn't do incremental patches, judging by past experiences. I never said that they absolutely must be in right away, anyway. They would be nice for a future release, considering that they were such basic, common pieces of equipment compared to some of the more rare things that have already made it into the game.
