Title: vbase layout
Post by: SirNuke on June 01, 2020, 05:41:28 AM
Why are 17lb guns in the middle of trees? was it common practice to see nothing out of them in WWII?
Also why most of them can't see the maproom?
I understand that 17lbs have been nerfed into the ground to help milkrunning, but as they were multi people position we should be able to look left or right in them?

I always laugh when 17 pounders can't kill troops.

17lbers can't kill anything tbh, their rotation speed is so slow a it's can't even kill a moving wheelchair

The 37mm next to the Storch hanger can't hit the troops going in the map room either. :bhead

You canít even have the clipboard map visible when manning them.

It can now.  (The angle of depression for the 37 and 17 was increased quite a while ago.)

I've hit moving T-34s at 2k with a 17.  Just takes some lead.

Just don't get why there isn't a 'commander' view position to allow looking around.  This was a multi-person crew weapon, not one guy with his eye glued to the gun sight.

it's been short since I came back but I think there's two + a small custom one, this one I'm talking about is the standard 1 mile base I think

I was being sarcastic, the rotation speed is so poor, spotting anyone is s miracle in itself
