Re: how to make light mortars usable

every country had some type of light mortar going into ww2, but all of them sucked except for the US 60mm (which was excellent and become the standard post ww2). They could just be embedded into a command squad for throwing long range smoke. Yes, the US one was the best indeed while the others of t...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

- I never claimed pin point accuracy for any MG - MG 42 firing at 2000 m was problematic for LMG bipod mount, read again. if not clear, I'll emphasize, the quote is from the chapter regarding the LMG mount - the procedure described in the manual does not state the range - the optic sight from MG42 w...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

Now a Vickers only 1/3 makes it? What do you mean by that? ammo on target compared with a MG42. I said two pages ago that while a Vickers (and generally water-cooled) HMG can reach 2000 m range in direct fire(doubtful), the effect on target would be negligible. I provided you info from a respectabl...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

No one is arguing that the German MG-42 is capable of firing at a 2+km range, however, as pointed out by many, so are most other GPMG's used in game. All countries had bullets specifically designed for machinegun fire and I can't see enough of a difference between the 8mm mauser and the 30-06/7.62m...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

Once again, if the scope was what gave the range advantage, why is it unique to the MG-42? The scope was used on the tripod, not the gun, which could also carry the MG-34. So there is still a discrepancy. Same McNab's book. I can only snapshot small patches because I have the book in google play so...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

M2 Browning is a different league, I mentioned it before as best of its caliber, M1919 is not in use in NATO countries anymore and wasn't produced after 1945. SG-43 is just from older stocks but it was replaced with General Purpose MG PKT while M3, an adaptation of MG43 was used in NATO as GPMG So ...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

So you are basically telling me a WW1 design is as good as a MG42. As much as don't like the wehraboos, there is a reason for which that gun is used even today instead of water cooled ones. I won't go to compare it with a Maxim, but see here a comparison with a SG-43. O5MAg5feoUQ see at minute 8:08 ...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

The way I see how stats should be: Both Allied/German MGs get the same range. Germans get higher RoF but slightly lower accuracy, Allies get higher accuracy but lower RoF. Do you actually have some hard data to back the usage of Allied MGs in the same way with German MGs, meaning long range direct ...
