Hi, what do you think about an african map with french/british against italian/german ? for exemple the battle of Bir Hakeim http://www.charles-de-gaulle.org/article.php3?id_article=159 this might be good to see all the new italian's stuff there :D
Bir Hakeim would be a good choice.
I thought this was going to lean more toward the Itaian Invasion of France in 1940 where they got their butts kicked by the French.
And IIRC there was the British Invasion of Vichy French Syria and Lebanon.
How about the Italian invasion of Abyssinia, in 1936?
Erm...1936? That's a little early isn't it?
I dont know, its just an idea.
an Italy vs UK Battle of Britain map would be cool...
BRITAIN October 25-Hardly ever discussed was Italy's involvement in the Battle of Britain.Against Hitlers wishes and most Italian military leaders,Mussolini sent some 200 aircraft including 73 Fiat BR.20 stork medium bombers into occupied Belgium to conduct Italy's share of bombing England. Little success was achieved in this campaign due to the poor performance of Italian aircraft against the British and the edge England had with radar.Italian sorties had to be conducted at night or a few daylight raids limited to 1,500 pound bombs per aircraft.Within 4 months,the Italian supply of BR.20 Storks were cut by 25% due to British interceptions.A total of 54 tons of ordnance was dropped on England.The fighter "gruppi" completed 883 sorties,losing 9 aircraft in combat.
I didn't make it!
This is Africa and if they did make a Battle of Bir Hakeim I would say just make the teams French vs Italy would get a chance to try out some of the frenchs toys and some of italy toys i think this would make a great Africa map i sure hope the devs look it over
Dr.FritzHow about the Italian invasion of Abyssinia, in 1936?
why would you want to an ethopian army? their tanks were horses and there guns were from like the civil war. and i dont think they would waste alot of time on that. i just want an operation compass map.
How about a map with French fighting the Americans? The Americans wanted to land in Algeria or Morocco, I don't remember, and the French tought they where trying to invade their territory but they just landed to attack the Germans over land. And so the French fought the Americans for 2 weeks before they realized they had no bad intentions. LoL
The problem with that is FH has to create a whole new Axis French Army. Thats alot of work for just one or two maps.
The way BF1942 is coded you cant have one Ally fight another Ally. It has to be a team from the Allies list and a team from the Axis list.
I wouldnt mind seeing a Operation Torch map but I dont expect them to go to all that trouble.
