Holy shit, these news on the terrains are just phenomenal!

 

Hürtgenwald! ❤ Vossenack... I began a campaign (player as a German soldier) right at that spot (at "Menstrenger Mühle") on the Hürtgenwald map in Arma 2.

 

But then I gave it up eventually. Looks like I will have to get back to it. :don11:

 

Damn guys, now you got me! :eyeheart:

Seeing the amazing quality of the models from RHS and now this mod, I've wondered, do you make these models using 3D scanning or do you make them by hand in a tool or something?

being as this mod will focus on late war era & germany being defensive does that mean FLaK guns too? including the monstrous Flak tower? such things in ARMA would make me drool!!! to add context I'm listing some Photos... down the line if some map makers were to do a map of Berlin for instance, they can't leave out these Concrete Giants! 3 G-Towers were built in Berlin to triangulate Flak cover of the city and as said by WIKI:"usually armed with eight (four twin) 128mm FlaK 40 and numerous 37 mm and 32 (eight quad) 20mm guns. During the Battle of Berlin, the guns on the Zoo Tower were used successfully to support ground forces, where the heavy 128mm shells obliterated Soviet armor, especially when hit from the side. The rush to capture the Reichstag led to dozens of tanks being destroyed."

if nothing else I believe the FLaK 37 8,8cm should at least be put on the list  because of it's usefulness as a defensive "Buildable emplacement" as you say do to it's function as a Multi-role Artillery piece, having the ability to conventionally target Aircraft, Directly engage ground targets i.e. infantry & vehicles, And indirectly barrage targets like a medium field Howitzer.

 

I've tried to make my point professional and formal but in short what I ask is:

  • Will Germany have AAA FLaK guns, and if so what variants/calibers will be among them i.e. 20mm, 37mm, 88mm & 128mm
  • Will Flak towers be added to accommodate the Heavy batteries
  • And as a sider, Bombers and fighters be available to give the AA something to shot at: USAAF B-17s, B-24s, Mustangs & Thunderbolts, RAF Lancaster Bombers (which could hold a staggering 14,000 Lbs of bombs max), Spitfires & Typhoons.

 

hope to get reply from you cause this is a good debate to chat about...

Regards from Down Under

I highly doubt they will ever add Flak towers unless they decide to extend the scope of the mod to include a city like Hamburg. Recreating that city in the game would require a humongous amount of custom assets as well.
