I'm sure Devs know their stuff, and they know what battles to do, but I was just searching around on Wikipedia and found this timeline. It's pretty cool because it just shows how many battles could be made that were never introduced in FH1!
You can also see a few places that have been captured and recaptured during the war.
So maybe there could be like, ex.: Tobruk 1941, 1942, etc.. And with different years, maybe the map will have more blown up stuff/damage/destruction on it. Just a thought...
Also, it looks like Italians played a major role in Africa maybe even more than Germans!
This has been discussed already lots of times. It's been done in DC, probably a few other mods, and in some ways is done in FH already, example, El Alamein & Supercharge, iirc it's almost representative of 2 different battles during xx time period for a certain operation.
Oh! I never knew that Supercharge and El Alamein were related. Oh well. The main idea is the Wiki site though :p
My memory is foggy on the issue so don't quote me. We're treading on sensitive ground around here at times regarding specific facts. :D
Hmm, wish it made a bigger deal of Operation Compass. Cracka, you say that the italians perhaps played a bigger part in Africa ... I really wouldn't like to agree there. Operation Compass for example, the Brits were outnumbered, yet still managed to get all the way to El Agheila and capture around 160,000 Italian prisoners I beleive (at a loss of less than 2000 men for the british). It was probably the most succesful operation by the British of the entire war. The Africa campaign really didn't get going until Rommel arrived in my opinion (or at least, it started looking bad for the British when Rommel launched his first offensive).
You are forgetting the East Afircan campaign.
I am sure Italian will be involved in the first release... I can remember a developer mentioned in a thread something about ingame weapon, and told in a wanton mood :D , that in FH2 were just two ingame shots of a weapon...
1. MP 40
2. and an italian weapon near a Flak ( I dont remember).... :giggle:
so you nearly can be sure that something with italian army will be in the first release, I think that will be fun :cool:
As far as I know, only the British and Germans will feature in the first version - at least that's what most devs are saying, as it would seriously delay the first version by featuring yet another army. What does the MP-40 have to do with the Italians?
I don't know about that but there is certainly an Italian L70 (?) assault gun in one of the screenies. It could be just that the Germans are using them, like we have on El Alamein in FH1.
Well maybe the germans will have some italian equipment at their disposal in the first release though it would only include the brits and the germans. That would be feasible.
