The Vanilla map of Tobruk is the British version as the last CP would not be captureable if defended by Australians (Germans never captured it during the 1st seige). Further, Australians never fought the Tiger (except possibly 3 Sqn RAAF flying P40E's). Lastly, the Owen Gun never saw service in North Africa.

Soldat JakobNo one wants to kill Austrailians though. Austrailians are awsome.[/QUOTE]

Well, New Zealanders gave up wanting to kill Aussies when they stopped molesting our sheep! :D

[QUOTE=Panzergrenadier]Heh... Australians were some of the most tenatios soldiers the Brits had. The Austrailians and the Gurkha's were ... well lets just say feared by most germans.

You forget the Maori Batallian. :D

WAW made a FH Tobruk conversion for last campaign. Also turned it into a night map (thanks to Tank). Troops didn't care much for the whole night element in the end (whiners) so now he is tweaking it and re-texturing it to a dusk map. Basically a bit more light than the night map was.

We also were going to rebalance the tank load out as the Panzer4Ds did not fair well at all (Axis players refered to the Panzer4D as "The Coffin") against the crusaders we had for the allies. Though I do like the idea of having the map be Italians vs Australians. Gives me an excuse to pull out any new Italian equipment we may have in 0.6... though the axis will most likely lynch me for making them use Italian equipment.

Aussies also had their own tank, called the Sentinel.

Yeah but they never really made any kind of impact on the war. They were used mostly for training and in 1943 they halted building them because there was no more threat of Australia being invaded by the Japs, and cause there were so many Shermans being produced every allied country could be equipped.
