Nice.
Though someone needs to animate all of these, lol.
Hope so, this awesome 50 cal is going to need to be simplified some, and needs an ammo box and ammo belt: [URL]http://www.westcourtcavaliers.com/CADCAM/M2HBa.jpg[/URL]

I didn't make the above model (can't even say where it came from), so only using it for reference to build my own versions (tripod and pintal). Don't want to step on any e-toes. Pretty sure it'll punch holes in a 251 :D

:cool:

The Sk251 had sloped armor, so it was probably fairly resistant to small arms. The M3 was less so simply because of the vertical sides. But the .50 cal was designed to punch through light armor and did so effectively, particularly if the ammo used was AP. Just as a side thought, the presence of the .50 cal is realistic, but will add a whole new dynamic to the maps. This thing can punch through buildings. Tactics will have to be developed to deal with it. This is probably a good thing, because there is a lot of room for improvement in terms of how players move about and coordinate attack and defense. Still too much running around like irrational chickens.

Considering the short engagement ranges, that everyone on the other side will have sniper-esque zoom, and the .50 won't be mobile like a lmg, I think your life expectancy as a mounted mg'er won't be long.

If you can sit back at long range somewhere with it, it will be effective at suppression and keeping people on the floor however. Like it should.

Dunno, don't want to rain on the parade, but I foresee that, with the current zoom and the historical lack of any sort of armored shield for the MGers, they'll be slumped down on the hull of the M3 for most of the time when the HT is anywhere near rifle range, not to mention the MGs...
