The 10th release of Battlegroup42 is now out - 0.95. It requires 0.9 to be installed, and together they provide probably the biggest new content of any mod: nearly 70 new vehicles, 22 maps, half a dozen new aircraft, and a dozen or so small-arms. The latest press release is attached below, for further full details visit our forum:

BattleGroup42 Mod for Battlefield 1942 ======================================

This is Beta Release 0.95 of BattleGroup42. It requires 0.9 to already be installed, and is intended for Battlefield 1942 version 1.5.

It has the following gameplay changes: - All tanks and anti-tank guns now have a fixed (low-power) zoom - Heavy tanks have gunsights - APCs have lowered MG positions and use ironsights - Jagdpanther tank destroyer has high-powered (x2.5) zoom in second, gunner's position - Infantry small-arms, MGs and bazookas have increased damage - Aircraft power has been rebalanced - Tank projectiles have reduced damage against armour greater than they could penetrate in real life

Despite the small version number change, 0.95 is a major update that largely completes our ambition with 0.9 to 'redefine the battlefield' - specifically to have all appropriate maps having all the right vehicles for all the nationalities featured. With 0.95 (including 0.9) the following maps are featured (the 5 new maps in 0.95 marked with an asterisk, *):

1) 4104-Karst by Amaccann (with bot support) 2) 4105-Operation_Mercury 3) 4106-Operation_Barbarossa by Ghoul and GlobalConflict 4) 4111-Operation_Crusader by Lt.Havoc and Fritz 5) 4111-Rostov by Amaccann (with bot support) 6) 4212-Tebourba 7) 4301-Stalingrad_Winter (with bot support) 8) 4302-Tundra by Augustus (with bot support by Arc D'Wraith) 9) 4302-KharkovWinter* by L3-dOg 10) 4303-Rabaul by Lt.Havoc and Fritz 11) 4307-Operation_Citadel (with bot support) 12) 4401-Battle_For_Korsun* by Lt.Havoc and Fritz 13) 4406-LD_PointDuHoc by Cpl.Reynolds (with bot support by Arc D'Wraith) 14) 4407-BarkmannsCorner* (with bot support) 15) 4407-SaintLo by Brenil 16) 4408-Anguar 17) 4408-CarpathianDefense* (previously UralFoothills) by Demize99 18) 4409-Nancy by Lt.Havoc and Fritz 19) 4409-Op_Market_Garden (DICE map but with British army and other changes) 20) 4410-Debrecen (with bot support) 21) 4411-Huertgen_Forest by BobChinook 22) 4503-The_Swamp 23) 4503-OperationVarsity* by Zara5ustra

plus, of course, full support for all the original 20 or so DICE maps (except for OperationMarketGarden which is replaced by 4409-OpMarketGarden). The full set of 67 Battlegroup vehicles and other equipment for these maps is as follows (excluding DICE original ones), with the new ones in 0.95 marked with an asterisk:

My personal favourite is the US M16 MGMC (multiple gun motor carriage) mobile AA - 4 x 50cal - which saw extensive service in every theatre for the second half of the war. It was so successful it was the only significant US AA to see service, and though it was supposed to be replaced after the war by the M19 it still saw service in Korea:

Give it a go - where else can you play with a King Tiger (my favourite), IS-2, KV-1, KV-85, Ho-Ki, etc?

Here's the King Tiger from the wallpapers on our website (battlegroup42.com): BG42_WP_KT2_80x60.JPG
