I just wanted to help clear some stuff up here about 2.7. The latest release date that Ive heard of from a developer is Julcember. 2.7 will be a full install, no patch. "[Dev]Pye wrote: We done a complete reorganization of the asset and code structure to support other work done by the various groups that are working with the AA code. There is a lot of governmental work that is based of the America's Army game that is largely invisible to the gaming public. In order to support that work we had to make some changes to the way code and assets are labeled, stored, written etc... Because of those changes, it's not really possible to patch the old asset packages without having a "patch" that comes out to nearly the size of a full install. So, unfortunately, there won't be a patch version of 2.7." . No there aren't shotguns, m14 snipers or the new xm8 assault rifle. The new weapons are the new javelin rocket system, and the CROWS HMWVV mounted .50 cal. & mk18 grenade launcher. Yes there are driveable humvees and only those. You cannot drive the tanks. The tanks are AI (artificial Intelligence). There are 3 new maps, 2 co-oop and 1 multiplayer. The co-op maps are SF SnakePlain and Interdiction and the multiplayer map is Steamroller. Yes there will be new camoflauge. In order to use the new weapons and to drive the humvee you need to pass some new training missions. No there is not a map editor with this version of Amreicas Army... that will probabaly come out in 2.8 or 2.9. If you can run 2.6 on your computer then you most likely can run 2.7. IMPORTANT! I AM NOT A DEVELOPER / BETA TESTER. I AM JUST POSTING THIS FROM ARTICLES I HAVE READ. TO READ FOR YOURSELF GO TO http://forum.americasarmy.com/viewtopic.php?t=226451 OR LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE. IT DOESNT TAKE MUCH TIME TO FIND SOMETHING.
Here is a video showing some of the new things in 2.7 http://www.americasarmy.com/community/

you shuld be able to play all of the maps try redownloading the 2.6 patch
im re d/ling the whole 2.6 game! ive re installed aa god-only-knows how many times
Patches are fraught with prior problems. Patches don't solve many, only the glaring problems. Never take the fast fix, lest be the only resort. You should have Dloaded the full v2.6, most likely would have solved your problems. btw, you never did respond to my offer to assist you - I have no problem with YIM, nor did the others that came to me YIM after that response post. Sometimes, one just needs to set their problems aside. What would you do if your RL teamie had a problem communicating ? As a lifelong military communications operator, I tell you QSY (change channels = anything but AOL) MS Msngr may work but it has no archive capabilities at this time (if it does , it is loaded with resource hogging attributes.) You want FAST answers, YIM is the way; email is the new snail mail; MS still suxs in that area. You want help ? BITE THE YIM BULLET ! KISS - keep it simple s.....
If operating MS Server 2003, I understand, but at age 14 I seriously doubt it.

i hope in 2.7 evry one gets a pistol not just snipers
That would be nice. Perhaps the M-16A4 (and all of its high-speed goodies) will make its debut in this release. Ohh, ohh, M249 Para! 240 Bravo!
