Großadmiral DönitzIt would be an option for those who would like radio command text show up on your screen in the original language (mind you the keyboard commands to trigger these voices still would be in the langauge of your game). And as pointed out in time you would start to understand what was being said. Also this option could simply be turned off incase a battle sart with says Fins VS Russians and you can't speak nor wish to understand neither of those language you quickly can enable english (or in whatever language your game is) diologs again and switch back to "radio commands in national languages" when playing on a germans VS Americans map because you speak/understand both languages to a certain degree.

A couple weeks ago I played BF2 in a squad with two Germans. We all had mics of course. One spoke no English and the other could speak enough to get by. By the end of the night our German led squad was full and kicking ass. If I had not been so drunk I think I would have learned alot. I have a feeling with the mass appeal of FH and since there wont be 1000's of servers kicking about there is gonna be alot of multi-national sqauds kicking about.

Maoris are the native people of New Zealand, IIRC there was a Battalion of them on Crete, where they developed a penchant for using German weapons even though British weapons were more readily available, they captured a large number of Fallschirmjager weapons containers. They weren't at all pleased when their weapons were taken away from them when they reached North Africa. The Moaris went on to fight at El Alamein.

Maoris of the 28th (Maori) Battalion served in Greece, Crete, North Africa and Italy. The Maoris were used as shock troops, and launched the first offensive operation of the 8th Army after Montgomery took command:

El Alamein, 25th Aug 1942
The 28th Maori Battalion launches its attack. The men are heavily loaded with automatic weapons (mostly captured) and grenades. Few carry rifles. The Maori padre reads a prayer, and the men disappear into the gloom, and those remaining behind can only watch and listen to the opening barrage. At the expected time, the Maoris return with PoWs, who are brought to Kippenberger. The total is 41, from the Bologna Division. The Maoris report having annihilated two Italian companies and say they have left no one unhurt or not a prisoner. Maori casualties are more than 30, some due to friendly fire.
Maoris in Italy:

...turns out they kept their penchant for captured weapons until the wars end:

[color=black]With a cheery farewell grin they had marched off armed to the teeth, festooned with Spandaus, Schmeissers, Brens, tommy-guns, carbines and the odd rifle. They were a piratical looking crew, swathed in greatcoats and balaclavas topped by battered tin hats, creaking in their harness with necklaces of Spandau belts and bandoliers slung about them.
