Hello there My only real suggestion at this point is correcting the historical innaccuracy of having No.4s prevailent at El-Alamein and so forth. The No.4 Mk.I did not see widespread service till Italy, and really the only time the No.4 totally supplanted the SMLE was Normandy. In Italy, the SMLE was still used well into 1944, although admittedly this was probably only due to shortages of the No.4 and the fact that the British government has always been tight when it came to infantry weapons! It would be better for your North African/Tunisia Theatre to have the SMLE No.1 Mk.III*, as it was used not only by the British at this time but also served as the standard rifle for the ANZACs and Indian/Middle Eastern Divisions that served in North Africa. That and the fact that the 1907 Pattern bayonet is just so much more satisfying :) However I can understand the decision to go with the No.4, as the SMLE is more closely associated with WWI, and the fact that all subsquent releases will be chronologically later than North Africa, hence the No.4 will have greater and greater useage, compared to the SMLE. I just thought i'd voice what all of you on the dev team probably know anyway! Squire James

Yeah I think alot of people were talking about the absence of the standard SMLE rifle. I'm sure they'll add it in soon, seeing as it was such a staple of WWII infantry combat, and beyond WWII itself.

They know about it. McGibs said the SMLE will make its entrance probably alongside the ANZACs.

I happen to own a SMLE, and I have to say she is the finest looking battle rifle ever made (IMHO). Only one small other question, how come the FH2 team decided to start in Africa? I mean I like the NA Theatre as much as the next guy but I would have loved to have seen some BEF 1940 action. Also, alot of the tanks used by the Germans in those early campaigns went on to serve in the desert (PzKfpW III Ausf.E, PzKfpW IV Ausf.D ect) so if you started in 1939/40 you could easily make changes to the existing models or (comparatively) simple retextures. I'm sure we will see some early stuff after the Italy release though :)

North Africa was easier to do because it required less environmental statics that weren't already in vanilla BF2.

Well, I disagree on Germany vs Poland not being fun. It was infact the hardest campaign for the Germany Army, and while the overall campaign was a success there were many tactical failures. Its where the Wermacht learned the disadvantages of Blitzkrieg, and is partially responsible for the lighting assault on the low countries and France in 1940. However, Poland aside, wouldn't the BEF in 1940 be fun? I can see now why the devs went for Africa though, what with needing a whole new set of buildings and so forth for France.
