i think the expansion sounds cool. I dont see why you seem soo upset about it spidey. EA/Dice made this game and hence this forum was started. Non of us would be here if we didnt like the game. I dont think there are that many people out there that agree with you, at least i dont. I think it sounds cool and fun and personally, i cant wait until it comes out!

From what I can gather, the Germans were messing around with jetpack technology. Like the description says, they made the expansion to see if these "secret weapons" would have influanced the war. I agree with others that I would like to see more historically accurate weapons in the game. I usually have to add a mod to get the M1 Garand. :( Oh well. I might get the expansion to take a look at it and see what all it will/will not add. But like another poster stated, I still would like the sound issues to be fixed. I have the 1.31 patch and I still have a few issues. But I will try to be patient and hope that EA/Dice will fix it.

I wanna see some more guns like the Mosin Nagant, Springfield, Garand, PPsH, some Japanese weapons, more accurate vehicles, more maps, AIRBORNE missions, good objective missions, etc.

Its not Dice/Ea that makes it realistic its the community that keeps BF1942 going. Oh and SS they would make anything to get our money. Look at rtr and after DC 0.3 theres not a lot of people playing it anymore.

Heh, you guys will be happy with WoW if you want historically correct weapons. WoW stands for "Weapons of War" and in a way it will be a sort of patch for BF with correct weapons, flags and other things. Check out our forums for more info on it.:deal: WoW forum We also have a channel on irc, it is #WoWmod so feel free to drop in and gives us some suggestions;)

some russian could have thought why dont we make a friggin flying saucer and EA/dice would put it in, 100 bucks they would. AND I think they need to create a board of ww2buffs/gamers to decide what should go into games, it would be the best way.

SPIDEY THIS IS HISTORY GERMANS built first jet. ME 262, and they had plans for building lots more jets and planes too, which is true, because i some some plans. I have a book about them. All this is true. Americans and British copied Germans to make some jets. ALL this is history.ANd dont you want a c-47, moblie spawn point,( wish we could fly it, and hope spawn point c-47 doesnt blow up if shot.):lol: :lol: ;)

If EA/Dice would listen I'd write 'em. But they don't seem to care. Forgotten Hope will come out someday. Good mods take time, alot of time. I feel that originally Dice probably wanted to give all sides unique weapons but there was pressure (probably from EA) to push the games release date alot earlier. And the end result? An incomplete game and a meager expansion that still doesn't include side specific weapons.

StG44: Not invented until late 1943 and put into widespread service until 1944.

Thompson: As far as I know the British didn't use Thompsons. They thought SMGs were gangster weapons. But eventually they developed the Sten submachine gun (as seen in RtR...for the FRENCH :rolleyes: ).

MP18: I don't know why this is in the game at all... It's a German SMG that the Russians and Japanese are using for some reason. Japanese; maybe, since they were Germany's ally but... why not give them MP40s? Russia; No idea.

No4/No4 Sniper Rifle: Should only be used by the British.

M1 Garand: Whoops, not in the game is it? America's famous rifle doesn't make one appearance.

M1 Carbine: The lighter M1 Carbine has disappeared.

Springfield: Another famous rifle the Americans used that for some reason isn't there.

Dp1928 Light Machinegun: The only Russian gun that comes close to the BAR isn't there either.

PPSH 41: The Russian equivelant to the Thompson and MP40 is sleeping with the fishes.

Type 14 (Nambu) Revolver: Japan's pistol fails to make an appearance.

Type 38th Year Rifle: This Japanese equivelant to the Kar98 is MIA.

Type 97 Hand Grenade: The Japanese grenade has been potatomashed.

The Type 99, light machine gun: Closest thing to an assault rifle the Japanese had is StG'ed.

Bren Light Machinegun: The British equivelant to the BAR has been ousted.

I could go on and on... But the point is that this new expansion is just absurdly stupid. As I've said before... screw Secret Weapons; I'm waiting for Forgotten Hope.
