I just noticed looking at the screen the gave us for satchels, the kt picture appears to have its hatch open! If you look at the top left what appears to be hatch is hanging over the side. satchel.jpg Now compare to this screenshot taken by Eglaerinion (from this thread:http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=116431&page=2&pp=25) kingtiger1.jpg Another shot by ottskortexy. (Spelt that wrong) from same thread. alliesarelove.jpg I think its safe to say, or at least there is a high probabilty, that .65 is going to have tank hatches that open and shut. As to what tanks will have this feature, and whether this means that hatch will automatic or be player controlled, we shall have to wait and see......

Don't get your hopes up. That is a screenshot from another update.

I'm pretty sure it's just for decoration or an machine gun

Ah ok so they might have just added to the model to make it nicer looking. Probaly not a openable hatch...sigh..

Well its not THAT funny, eod added a hatch that opens on the sherdian tank when a gunner goes into it- so its at least possible. Also in there intial models for the kt and is2 both open and closed hatch versions are presented. The model we got in-game .61 had often had different hatch configurations then most of the screenshots presented there. Why would they make both open and closed hatch versions?- well likely just 'becasue', but this modeling would also be needed if they did intend to have different hatch positions. The screenshots: http://forgottenhope.bf1942files.com/April2004Archive.html Ill say that movable hatches is not as likey as I suggested intially, however, I wouldn't put it past them to incorporate something like this in a later fh version The is2 with its hatch open: IS2Render.jpg

Isn't it properly called a "cupola"?

Also, it seems that it's just for the looks because I think watching a commander firing a machine gun through a closed cupola would just be strange, don't you think?

yes the Hatch is open on all Screenshots you posted, and the IS-2, I think they modeled a open hatch because a later version of the Is-2 carried a Dhsk 12,7mm heavy mg on his top. But this mg is not modelled or skinned right now, thats because there is no mg on the top of the is-2 ;) (correct me if Im wrong)
