Ok if this has been answered before someone can take me out back and shoot me lol as I know how touchy some folks are about new threads that may be asking questions that may have even been asked 5-6 months ago..:uhoh: When the Italians show up in .7 (they are still coming in .7 right?). Anyhow, it was said by Lobo in another thread regarding something else I don't remember, that currently there are no Italian statics. So I'm just wondering, when the Italians show up for .7 will they only be seen in the African theater? (Egypt, Libya, East Africa, French North Africa, etc.) As there are no Italian statics thus far to support maps pertaining to either Sicily or mainland Italy. sincerely
I'm sure they'll make some, afterall look how many statics were made between 0.66 and 0.67 :)
I assume the Italians will be seen both in the Desert and mainland Italy
the main battles were fought in africa. in italy it was mainly germans vs. allieds as the italians surrendered early.
They surrendered shortly after the fall of Sicily iirc, so no mainland fights :)
But Sicily could be nice anyway, as it was one of those few (maybe the only?) places that Italy defended longer than couple days.
Ok, cool, thanks guys, I'm no ww2 guru yet, I'm still a young padawan in training :D It would be nice to see the M3 Grant/Lee when the Italians come..
Italy fought in Europe
June 10th, 1940 - Italy invades France through Nice and St. Bernard Pass
October 28th, 1940 - Italy invaded Greece but were driven back by the Greek Army til the Germans arrived.
June 26th, 1941 - Italy invaded Russia and was doing well even though they were complaining of poor equipment, low supplies and low fuel. Last mention I have is for December 1942 near Staingrad.
We still need Italian statics to do proper Italian front maps. As is everyone is trying to use BF1942 and DICE statics and is either doing creative positioning or retexturing the buildings.
*longs for a Italy vs Greece map*

:ditto: I totally second that. The Greek uniforms would be great to see. Skirts & Guns if you will. Not to mention the laughs we would get from listening to Greeks and Italians screaming at each other on the battlefield. Although I'm sure the Greeks are very low on the priority list at this point.
Italiano Warcry scare them men in skirts ;)
