So I thought I'd make a thread about the predicted vehicles and equipment in the first release of fh2. Here are my guesses.
Britain will have the MatildaIII, Daimler MkI, M3 Stuart II, Universal carrier, Willys jeep, Spitfire, Hurricane, 2 and 6 pounder anti tank guns and the 40mm Bofors
Germany will have the PanzerIII (and its varients), PanzerII, Hanomag, Kubelwagon, Panzer IV, Me-109, Stuka, 88 flak gun and the Pak 38
As for weapons I believe Mcgibs has already stated what would be in.
Anyone think there should be anything else added to the first release of FH2?
As for maps I'd be happy with 4 or 5. Maps in Bf2 are so big you wouln't get bored of them as fast as you do on Day of Defeat for example.
I'd like to see all new El Alamien and Tobruk along with remakes of Supercharge and Desert Rose.
Maybe we could also get a suprise with a really early battle in Egypt or Iraq?
anyway, post your thoughts and opinions.
Here's what I expect to see:
Britain: Matilda II M3 Honey Vickers Mk VI Light Tank Daimler Mk I Bren Gun Carrier Crusader Mk I and Mk III Valentine Mk II and Mk III Bedford Willys Jeep M3A1 Halftrack M4A1 Sherman Bishop
DAK Kubelwagen Schwimmwagen Kettenkrad Opel Blitz Horch 251/1 Hanomag etc. Sdkfz 222 Panzer I Panzer II Panzer III Panzer IVD, F2 Panzerjager I Marder I and II StuG III Ausf B Sdkfz 7, 7/1, 10/4
That's just a few of the ground units, I could be here all night otherwise.
I just hope the older, weaker models (Sdkfz 222, Sdkfz 7 etc.) get the same treatment as the M3 Honey and DAK Kubelwagen.
British will almost definatly have Matilda II, M3 Honey, Crusader, Valentine, and MK IV for tanks. The workhorses will be the crusader and valentine.
Holy crap, I was expecting a quick, smallish release. When I say quick i mean a 2005 release of course ;)
But when I think about it, most of those vehicles are already done up and just need some tweaking for FH2. the Weapons could be a little bit of a problem however :( both pistols need completely redone.
Africa Korps: 15cm sIG33 auf PzKpfw II Ausf.B Flammpanzer II SdKfz 122 SdKfz 223 (Fu) SdKfz 250/3 captured MatildaII An Italian AB 41 re-marked in German insignia PzKpfw IV Ausf.E SdKfz161
Britan: Mk.VIB Mk.I A9 Mk.II A10 Mk.VI Crusader Mk.III A15 Matilda Mk.II A12 Valentine Mk.III A15 Churchill Mk.IV A22
Please include Panzer VI [COLOR="Red"]TIGER[/COLOR]!!!
Was the Tiger even used in the early german vs. british part of North Africa? I think not!
If was in BF1942 though, and since BF1942 is the most historically accurate WWII game ever.... Just kidding :)
