Back to the update. We have presented a lot of vehicles lately, so we thought it was high time to issue some more equipment to the infantry men. And since the infantry will need something to use on all these new vehicles, here is the 7.92 mm Panzerbüchse M39 anti-tank rifle. The Wehrmacht used this single-shot rifle, which had to be manually loaded, against lightly armored and unarmored vehicles. It was a very simple and reliable gun with little recoil, but was relatively ineffective against all but the least well-protected targets. It was modeled and skinned by McGibs. The uvmapping was done by SirFluffy
Second item for today goes out to German NCO's and officers -- a 9mm pistol that was introduced in 1938 and is still in service with the Bundeswehr, the Federal Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Germany. The Walther P38 replaced the Luger P08 and it was revolutionary as it was the first locked-breech pistol to use a double-action trigger. It was modeled by Hail of Nails and skinned by McGibs.
Next we would like to add some information on the upcoming Forgotten Hope Fan Mappack for Battlefield 1942(tm)-- three more fan maps are for today. And the first Oscar goes to Road to Ramelle. Located on the banks of the Merderet River, The town of Ramelle, a fictional location you may remember from the movie Saving Private Ryan, is an important target for both Allied and German soldiers following the Allied landings at Utah and Omaha beaches on June 6th, 1944. The Germans need control of the village and its bridge to move armor up the Cotentin peninsula. in order to defend the port of Cherbourg, while the Allies need to prevent them. Road to Ramelle is an urban push map-mainly for infantry but with small quantities of Allied and German Armor, as well as the occasional air strike. This map was created by Bizness, and includes soldier skins by Hanley
The second map we would like to preview today, Operation Lilliput, has never before been released in an official Mappack. In this 1942 battle, Australian forces engaged the Japanese at the coastal village of Buna in New Guinea at the eastern end of the Kokoda trail. Although allied intelligence predicted small numbers of unprepared defenders, the allied attackers encountered a large force of well-fortified Japanese. This map was made by Real Bad-Seed, and also includes special Australian soldier skins made by Hanley. Operation Lilliput is a push map pitting Australian light armored forces against heavily fortified Japanese troops, in a swampy landscape, broken up by many streams and rivers.
The last map for today is Soletschnogorsk and it is new to the official Mappack as well. It takes place in November 1941, when elements of the German 2nd Panzer Division attacked the town of Soletschnogorsk, 8km outside of Moscow. Soletschnogorsk is an objective-based map--your goals will be to destroy (or prevent the enemy from doing so) all Russian objectives (which are a radar hut, one T34 and three KV-1s) and capture (or to prevent the enemy from doing so) all control points on this special push map. Soletschnogorsk was made by former fanmapper Lili Marlene, who was assisted by Camel Nele, who helped the objective-mode coding, and Knoffhoff, who added the random helmet code and various stuff. Like our other fan maps this week, it features a special Wehrmacht skin by Hanley.
Please release something with the next three months. I leave for Marine Corp boot camp at the end of June and I really want to try this Mod!!!!
