  1. I like the idea of some sort of sound cue. Ideally a sound clip of someone shouting something like "requesting artillery barrage at the following coordinates!" Coupled with a corresponding entry in local chat. They could also take a note from War Thunder and have a single ranging shot land before the entire barrage. Make it require line of sight to call in and add friendly fire to the mix and artillery should be pretty difficult to spam without pissing off your own side.
  2. The main issue isn't getting close, it's finding it. Artillery is quite easy to hide from air observation and even the smaller pieces like the 75mm Pack howitzer have firing ranges of roughly 8 kilometres. Quite a large chunk of land to search for a single gun, especially if you lack air superiority. Don't get my wrong, I would love to have artillery in game. Getting shelled to [censored] is part of the experience.
  3. Pretty sure the render distance would render artillery useless outside of direct fire.
  4. As we all know, french armour isn't french after Tier 0. For the most part, this can't be helped as french tank design halted after the occupation. But in 1944 the French provisional government, in the interests of establishing the french as a full partner of the allies, commissioned a heavy tank design utilizing only french components. In 1945 the design was respecced and a wooden mock up built. Unfortunately the war ended before any were built or a production order sent. However, in the interests of maintaining national prestige, on May 23 1945, 150 ARL 44 Tanks were ordered. While technically not in time frame, the ARL is very much comparable to other ww2 tanks, the tiger in particular. Carrying a 90mm gun, with 120mm of armour, and a paltry top speed of 30 km/h due to it's archaic suspension, it would provide a late game french tank without being overpowering.
  5. In the interests of having more real french tanks in the game I'd propose the following TD option for france. The SAu 40 - on right. Based on the SOUMA S35, the SAu 40 was to originally be armed with the 75mm APX gun -as seen on the prototype- but due to issues with the armament, it was decided to use the 47mm APX gun instead. 72 47mm SA 37 armed SAu 40s were ordered, but none were produced due to the capitulation. While it never saw mass production, I feel it would make a nice addition seeing as France actually ordered them in number and would have fielded them had she not lost, and would help add more french armour to french armour brigades.
  6. There is the issue that currently, the only capital in the game is brussels. And Paris, London, and Berlin are quite far away. Berlin in particular, would require modeling most of Germany just to include.
