Thank you jumjum, that's my new siggy. :D
If anyone would use a Thompson over a greaser, it would be an officer.
I'm hoping Officers have Greaseguns or Carbines, rather than the Thompson :P Just fits better imo. Of course it would be nice to have it different depending on the maps ala FH1, like sometimes the officer gets a carbine, while on the other map a greasegun, maybe even give them a rifle. I'd love to see the NCO kit for germans with just a bunch of Pistol ammo :P
Why Grease Guns? Werent they extremely rare?
They weren't exactly rare in the later part of the war; they were the mass production replacement for the Thompson. Stamped metal parts with no wood stocks and simple design etc. made it easier to make (read: cheaper). The Thompson was more expensive and also better built making it the more desirable of the two weapons.
Randomization was never supposed to be possible in BF1942 either. I suppose the availability of the M3 should depend on the map. Perhaps in a few early 1944 maps it should just be in pickup kits but on later maps it will replace the Thompson in the assault kit.
