Heroes from the unknown WW2 DLC :eek:


I came to think about something. It's actually true that Nazi Germany tried to learn dogs talk, read and spell. This project never became done before the war was over though. MOH1 for the PS1 portrayed it with dogs walking and running on two legs and attacking the player with Panzerfaust amd MP40.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/new...n-dogs-to-talk-read-and-spell-to-win-WW2.html

The Soviet at this time actually did use dogs for anti tank purposes.

Hey, there might've been one or two of these things kicking around Stalingrad, who knows!
They should be represented by every combat troop in the heer.

Additionally, without starting yet another flame war on the subject, no one yet has proven that the MkB wasn't there. Our burden of proof for including a weapon in Red Orchestra (for the mod, RO1, and RO2) was that someone had to prove that it WASN'T there.

In face of this principle that has been now (yet again) officially admitted from TWI's point of view, I most sincerely bump this thread and request further thought on this subject and here's the initial draft:

-Both sides have several jetpack troopers (and jetpack engineer as well) with access to virtually any weapon. Russians would have captured jetpacks to justify their own lack of direct equivalent.
-The jetpack would have regenerating fueltanks, allowing fluid gameplay within RO2's already fast gameplay without unnecessary interruptions to game flow.
-Damaging the jetpack disables it, small chance of explosion as well.
-Jetpack control would have two modes: Regular one that acts pretty much your standard jetpack ala DN3D\Tribes\[insert some other examples] and a 'flight' mode where you cannot use your weapon, but have greater control over flight, angles etc as if you're wnb-Superman with a flight device.
-Crashing at high speeds is obviously fatal.

Actual benefits:
-New dimension of tactics. Imagine Grain Elevator or Pavlov's House when you suddenly have tons of new directions to consider. Or say Red October Factory.
-Less campy gameplay for obvious reasons.
-Gore system can benefit from high speed crashes or mid-air colissions.
-New possibilities for stat growth, E.G. flight stability, response, larger fuel reserves etc.
-More gameplay use for HMGs and actual reason to add AAMGs\such in the future.
-Custom mappers can have more creative scenarios and map designs to truly take the best out of jetpacks.
-Fun factor that goes seamlessly with RO2's core gameplay.

Possible negative effects:
-Takes a while for people to truly master the class.
-Some maps may require some small changes in order to properly accommodate jetpack classes.

It's effectively win-win situation in any situation to both developers and the playerbase of RO2 to have a fresh change that is perfectly justified by historical and also realism grounds. :)

You revived your own flame thread! Brilliant!!

Now let's bath in the glory of flame posts against the weapons which should be in the RO.

The MKB should never been there, rage!
Why do we have MP41 it weren't used by normal soldiers!
Why is the ppsh43 do on maps which couldn't possibly have had them!?
Omg I can use full auto on the AVT, no one did that!
Lol I has ZF41 scope on my G41, time machine ftw.


....Wait, I seem to have lost my point. There should be no other than regular issue weapons, that is what is fun. Yey..

I know what you're thinking: ''Did he fire six shots, or only five?'' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But, being as this is a German prototype of the 1.44 Sturmjetpack Expanded with two deployed double-barreled MG42 along with fully loaded panzershreck launchers, that'll shoot your eye out, you've got to ask yourself the question: Who has proven that it wasn't there? Well, who proved it, punk?

considering that TWI was going ahistorical, they might as well have gone all the way and made it interesting.

Then we could have stuff like this:
