The external_soldier_view.zip file you have requested: Mods / Mini-Mods / External Soldier View - 0.89kb is not available. Perhaps try browsing all files for the game Battlefield 1942 and upload any files you want to share or are missing. This is the only information we could locate:
This handy file will give you the full range of camera views while you're running around as a soldier, very useful in single player for checking what's going on around you. You'll notice one of the views has a tendency to put the camera in your head, but other than that the file works great in multiplayer as well as singleplayer modes.
Some people may consider this as CHEATING! So therefore if you play on a server where they tell you not to use this DONT.
Take that to heart, folks. Don't be lamers/llamas/smacktards etc. Tony humbly asked me to credit this file as a collaboration of the BF1942.com General Editing Community - but that's a bit long for the Developer nickname so you get the listing as author, Tony. :p
