In an effort to add to the realism in the Operation Market Garden map, we've exchanged the US soldiers for British soldiers. In addition to the soldier model exchanges in Singleplayer and, where possible in multiplayer mode, the voice communications have been changed to British as well.Many of the default vehicle markings/insignia have been added or improved. Their placements have been changed to more closely represent where they would have been in reality. We've added Allied lend-lease insignia to all Allied vehicles and Nazi flags or pennants to the Axis vehicles. We've also changed the B17 and Mustang textures as well. Look for other texture changes including Nazi banners on bunkers, buildings and inside the church with a portrait of Hitler, Nazi war slogans, grafitti and more. NOTE: Please note that the Multiplayer soldier is determined by the server which sets it to use the US models. We can not make the same exchange without breaking the client-side model, packaging it as a mod or a custom game. The only significant difference will be the Para helmets, some of the web gear and some of the communications. Preamble -------- Operation Market Garden which lasted from September 17th to Sept 25th, 1944 is famed as the largest airborne attack in history. Nearly 35,000 Allied troops participated in Operation Market Garden. In the nine days of the operation, the number of men killed, wounded, and missing reached more than 17,000. British forces, with 13,226, suffered the highest number of casualties. The plan was for Allied forces to cut off the defending German forces in Holland and drive into Germany. British armor was assigned the task of driving north 64 miles up the Eindhoven-Nijmegen-Arnhem road corridor and link up at the great bridge at Arnhem over the Rhine River. Dropping by parachute and in gliders the 1st Allied Airborne Army would land near the Dutch towns of Eindhoven, Nijmegen and Arnhem, to take the eight key bridges. As it happened, the paratroopers carried out their mission of seizing the road corridor through Holland and secured several river crossings, including the bridge at Arnhem. Due to unreliable communications, poor intelligence and strong German resistance, Allied armor forces advancing from the south failed to link up with the paratroops as planned. The bridge at Arnhem could not be captured and so the advance into Germany was not possible. ====================================== Textures included in this Texture set. ====================================== --==Killah==--'s 1st British Airborne Division Paratrooper Uniform Reskin.
