In pretty much all thous cases, flares most likely = illumination shot from a mortar, since they are basically big ass flares, and not a flare from a flare gun? Only possibly The battle for Mount Harriet ref might be but most likely its from a small mortar they had with them.

Well we can't tell for sure, but flare guns are used in all wars most of the time, wouldn't surprise me if they saw some use in the Falklands too. Maybe make them on a limited kit? Say sniper, specialist, marksman kit?

I've never heard of a flare gun being used to illuminant the battle field myself. Will see what the MAs think but first I would like to see what FH2 has done.

I will try to find a source later if you shouldn't believe me but when I was in the Danish army we used flare guns all the time in night exercises. Really effective just before making a surprise attack on the enemy.

... Or were you just referring to the Falkland war?

Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading

Ok, so maybe flare guns are not so realistic, but the illuminant shots seems pretty badass.

This would make night maps more enjoyable and cooler.

I would be happy just with ilum rounds from mortars

Czech military white illuminating parachute flare. - YouTube

Maybe make this a mortar feature?

"Requesting illuminating rounds fire mission"

Haven't they already used this in ww2? *remembering a night scene of "Letters from Iwo Jimo*

In our squad we had talked about this suggestion many times before and I would love to have it implemented (also in vPR and especially PR:V) but I always thought that was already suggested/hardcoded/whatever

There is hope...
