why not put the nederlands in the game, they fought very hard in 1940 to defend their home country en than in 1941/42 to defend the colonie the dutch/east-indies in the pacific. so you can put them in many sorts of maps.

I dont know of the Dutch would fit in that well. If I remember right they only had 2 armored car divisions and I cant really see a bunch of armored cars going up against panzer III's. But besides that a new army is always welcome.

Why would that matter? just because a army didn't have any good armor, doesn't mean it didn't have any intresting battles. Many of the battles in the Netherlands where fierce enough without any armor, such as the attack on the grebbeline, the ''afsluitdijk'' ( sorry i couldn't find a english word for this ) or the defense of Rotterdam by the dutch marines. If i remember correctly, one of the forum members ( Invincible ) is working on a mod that adds the Dutch to FH.

The devs are busy enough as it is with adding the bigger nations. A minimod will be a way to be sure that FH2 will feature the Dutch armed forces because asking of the devs to include every small nation that had some interesting battles is a bit to much.

Weak armor is no excuse, just look at the invasion of Poland. The Netherlands would show be an intresting scene. Fallschirmjäger vs Dutch soldiers would be an intresting scene for sure located about one of the bridges of "the fortress holland" (the whole line of defences in the west to protect the large cities).

A map with the KNIL in the pacific would be cool too, perhaps that FH will get to it eventually. We can wait. There are a bunch of people working on a dutch sub-mod for FH actually. :D /me looks at NLinvincible.

I'd also love to see more '44 and '45 battles in the Netherlands.

Since my last visit, i have become fairly intrested in the battle on the isle of ''Texel'' between Captured Georgians and German in the town of Den burg and such.

You could basicly use russian skins as the Georgians and equip them with random German equipment.

And if i am not misaken a other member was also working on a improved Arhnem map.
