I have a question about the M1: How come it isn't on the pacific maps?

Either way, kudos to the FH team for putting out an excellent mod.

Good question, when was this weapon started to use?, in wich maps it would be historic to put it?

I'm pretty sure it was used at the outset of the war, but I could be wrong. It sucks though, since it's such a cool gun, and you hardly ever see it (haven't played one multiplayer map that had the Garand).

There are just way to many Germans vs Russia maps running on the servers...

Garand:

By Pearl Harbor, there were relatively few M1s in inventory, and the predominate service rifle was still the '03. Most of the United States' early battles of the war, especially in the Pacific, were fought primarily with the bolt-action Springfield. Large numbers of World War I and earlier vintage '03s were refurbished by ordnance facilities for use in World War II. As production increased, the Garand began to be issued in growing numbers, but a surprising number of '03s remained in front-line use. Also Soldiers found it to long and heavy so they mostly used the M1 Carabine instead.

The Garand was produced the first time in 1936, was used in the main WW2 (from Peal Harbour to the end of the war), in late 42 was improved with a locking bar. It was designed for semi-automatic fire using a spring steel clip containing 8 rounds. This is where the term "clip" originated. All other rifles used a detachable or fixed magazine. The M1 Garand was designed for long range accuracy i.e. battle zero was set for any target less than 200 yards It was the only rifle that had fully adjustable i.e. windage and elevation, rear sights.
