Benghazi-1941, By RedSand

Benghazi is the second largest city in Libya. In early 1941 German troops raided and captured it. British bombers bombed the city over a thousand times, most bombs hit the heavily guarded military zones in the south suburbs. During the month of August is 1941 ANZAC troops raided the south suburb capturing it with out the support of British artillery or soldiers. This is an example of the true fight on spirit of the average Australian 'shit kicker'.

Looks nice. Do you have any links to where I can read more about this 'raid on Benghazi'?

The stengun you're using is a Mk V, first used in 1944. It's better to give them tommyguns. ;)

Sten MkV in use by ANZACs in 1941?

Other than that, good going.

The Sten

The error of the Sten has already been pointed out. In fact there was a code problem with the kit and it accidentally used the Sten Mk.V. Where as we intended it to use the Sten Mk.I . The author has been informed and is aware he is at fault, he did not pick up on the error. The kit featured is only a pick up that was picked up when the screenie was taking. The Sten Mk.I was used by the British, it is only a pick up kit on the map, we used it in the screenies as the rifles the ANZACS use in the kits are not properly textured yet.

Benghazi, sources 1941 North Africa, WW2, Tobruk, Benghazi, Torch, Malta, Suez, Egypt, Greece, Crete, Alexandria, Med Fleet, 8th Army, Montgomery ::1941:: Most of the information used to create the mod was taking from a book called 'Second World War, a Generation of Australian Heros' by Richard Pelvin. You can get it and read the reviews at these sites: Second World War - A Generation of Australian Heroes by Richard Pelvin @ BooksDirect Amazon.com: The Second World War: A Generation of Australian Heroes: An Illustrated History, 1939-1945: Books: Richard Pelvin,Australian War Memorial btw, i only see 1 kind of buildings, odd... There are only three buildings Africa on the whole game to use. We have used a variety of buildings, such as the mosque and the Pavlov wall prop on our map.

Notes We have re-skinned the walls (shown in the last screenies with a crappy skin).

What FN needs People experience in creation of AI and path mapping.

None of those links mention a raid on Benghazi in August 1941.

RedSand has made a typo. The battle of Benghazi happened in February. This could be due to poor research or a typo. Forgotten Nation's sincere apologies for the misinformation.

Well there's a huge difference. The battle of Benghazi in February of 1941 was fought against the Italians, not the Germans! The Germans hadn't even arrived in Africa yet.
