Title says it all, all kits should have binoculars.

I was playing on the German side and while I was in a bunker me and the gunner could not tell if we were hitting anything. It would be great if kits were given binoculars to spot for machine guns.

I disagree, I like the way it is now. It would make things more complicated for the americans behind cover.

I strongly disagree, it is balanced now. On the beach the US would get locked on by MGs and other weaponry and that would be a massacre. Once outside the beach, the US would rape the germans out with their superior weaponry and massive tickets ammount.

Also not all WW2 soldiers were equipped with binos.

But then again, IRL you can focus your eyes and distance doesn't fade kit geometries etc. AFAIK this (engine limitations) is the reason all the kits in PR have binos.

But I agree it's fine like it is now. It would mean a massacre for the Americans on the beach, and a massacre for the Germans once the Americans break free.
It feels more authentic now as well.

Yeah I would disagree here..

If you gave everyone Bino's then wheres the realism?.. During 2nd World War it was mainly Marksman/Officers or snipers that where wearing them..

Even though we do not tend to follow the history books with PN... I would not find it fun if everyone had the chance to locate people while they are still miles away.. I find it plenty of fun the way it is now ;)

What?

What resolution do you play on... surely I own the most incompetent PC gaming machine in history playing on an ancient 1024x768 resolution and I can see individual enemies run out of the Higgins, hiding behind hedgehogs and crawling inside the arty craters on the beach.

I also have no problem seeing where my MG fire lands and if I killed someone or not, surely you have to be playing on a higher resolution than I am?

I totally agree! :)

In WWII it was the binoculars the official standard equipment of the officers! The others did not have this equipment, so it was 100% correct as each kit is designed for soldiers to Normandy project

Not gonna happen. I like it the way it is now. Perhaps 1 request kit will get binocs, but that's about it. Rely on your squad leaders, they are important.

Yeah, Squadleaders job is to mainly use it's binoculars and report contacts with markers. Snipers will certainly have this and may marksman kit.

I disagree, but one more kit can get additional binoculars. I am also playing at 1024x768 and haven't get much troubles shotting with MG at carrier, but i was not sure, if i kill him, or he only get prone. But I often have problems deciding if I am aiming toward enemy or friendly on medium lengths.

Scout troopers should have one too (if there is any scouts actually ?) Haven't downloaded the game yet



Though i agree that not every one has Binocs

I like the way it is, more teamwork, squad members depending on squad liders. Maybe PR should be like this, of course allowing other kits to have binocs also, but not all of them.

Maybe the Specialist could get it then?

I personally like FH2's system, where only Scout class (this mod doesnt have i think) and sniper had binocs + Squad leaders, and some non-spawn kits you could pick up like one with an MP40, Gebaulte ladung, and binocs. And a pistol+knife o course.
