First: It's clear as **** that he chose to shoot this far.
Second: What's the meaning of "since it's CoH"?
Third: ModDB lets you delete your comment.
Sorry but you're an idiot.

Yeah, I choose to shot that far. I had two videos taken from my tests(same weapon all along), this was one and the other was a maximum range test, but I think this one was fine to use.

To be honest, will all the 88mm Flak 18 get this? I would love to get some :)

Na, we just added it here to differentiate it from the other Flak88s.

Flaks are high velocity cannons with a pretty flat projectile trajectory over short distances. So, basically, having them fire like howitzers is plain out wrong...

Tell that to the Germans when they used theirs on US/CW forces in Normandy and the Soviets in Sevastopol.

Give any gun elevation and the laws of ballistics will do the rest.

Sure, but flight time and distance are a thing of ballistics too. Flaks were supposed to hit aircraft, so their ground use was as an anti-tank weapon due to its FLAT TRAJECTORY due to high velocity, not as a howitzer/mortar thingy. A flak 88 would cross the map no probem if used as a long range artillery piece, but it was far from divised for that. Here's the wiki page En.wikipedia.org :)

You are wrong on that, these weapons were used against anything they could use it against. American soldiers thought it was "anti-everything".

The fact that you think it is plain wrong doesn't matter, the truth is than the 88mm Flak 36 was used like field artillery when the situation required it regardless its projectile had a FLAT TRAJECTORY. And so we are doing in EF.

Not sure what do you meant with that wikipedia link, but we already have our expert historian who knows his stuff pretty well and I have read books and other historians reports about the topic, so the information in that link doesn't tell me something I don't know.

This is very good. I like all the animations put into the actual soldiers on the gun. I don't if I have seen those animations before on other 88's in other mods or in the vanilla. Although i could be wrong I just don't remember seeing them. Also I like that the troops are dressed for the winter very nice touch I really like the trench coats used by the Germans. Now only if you could get them to not jump off the gun to go into artillery position.

These are the default Relic made animations present on every flak 88 and yes they are very detailed.

Just uploading this because it is something for tomorrow's announcement.

Thanks to Dartborne from the Europe at War mod for his assistance on this matter.
