This is FANTASTIC! I can't wait to download!

I think another great addition to the mod would be power-ups etc. for kill streaks. It would be excellent for eliminating teamwork and realism, which I know is what the mod is totally about! (at least for one particular day in April every year...)

Great post guys ;D

Still need mappers, Flippy? What are the main manpower areas you guys could use a hand in these days?

Wow, the Tobruk defenses really surprised me. I know the FH2 map was based on the real thing, but from the birds-eye view they look identical. AT trenches, the circular area... Crazy

Where is an example of the "Mg42-Tripod" that can be raised/lowered? The deployable Lafette does not have this ability.
it does, static .50 cal does that as well....


no, it is W and S buttons in case of the Lafette, my bad, sorry!  ;)

Where are there static .50 cals?

Very nice!!! I had been wondering what the view from the heights was really like!

Hans! I Love the update man! Another incredible post!!!

I've said (well at least thought) it many, many times... This is my favorite damn thread on the forums.

Guys skiing deep powder wearing highly luminous LED suits. Totally awesome!

I wonder how that Sherman got turned upside down though... Artillery?  ???

I'm glad you asked! The gentleman who owns the property the tank is on (there are about 300 people who live on Peleliu) has a transcript from the Platoon commander of that tank unit. The tank was ordered to support the evacuation of two wounded sailors from an aviation unit. The wounded were successfully transported away, and the tank moved up to engage a couple of Japanese caves nearby. It most likely ran over an aircraft bomb that was buried as a mine. The commander of the tank was blown out of the hatch, and was the only survivor... Heavy stuff... :(

The Jap tunnels seem a pretty scary place to explore, considering their habit of booby-trapping everything!

There was a ton of live grenades, mess kits, shoes etc. everywhere. The worst part was seeing the flamethrower scorch marks at the entrance to the caves though... I'm still trying to sort out my emotions after seeing that...


For me,the best part is when you found actualy ww2 video of that specific B25 plane shot down and then you explore it and found underwater! Amazing!!

I have to confess, at first I thought it was the plane in the newsreel, but the wing I saw underwater was actually from a different B-24. The two wrecks are very close, I'd estimate within about a half mile from each other.

The B-24 I saw:
The B-24 in the newsreel:

My curiosity with exploring war sites has always been: did you find any corpse (e.g. human remains like skeletons, bones)?

Are the sites well-preserved (not altered/robbed by prospectors)? I see that there are still ammunition there.

I did see some human remains. I won't go into much detail out of respect for the deceased, but needless to say it was utterly tragic to behold.

The sites themselves are extremely well preserved. With a few exceptions, imagine the war ended, and the jungle grew up. That's Peleliu. Much unexploded ordnance has been removed, but there's still a lot out there in the jungle.

Great video! Very well done, the sights help a lot too, of course ;)

A scuba question: what species of fish is that around the 2 minute mark? (I mean the large group in which you can also see a guy swimming around).

Thanks man! Unfortunately I'm not really positive what those big schools of fish were. I don't think they were barracuda though. Some other long-ish fish... I obviously need to work on my marine wildlife identification :)

Anyway, you seem to emerge in a cave around 3:15, is it under the sea? How's the air like in that pocket?

That dive was called the "Chandelier Caverns," a very well known dive in Palau. The air was at sea level, there were a few mostly submerged caverns. I got down to about 50' deep at one point on that dive. Pretty nifty though! As far as the air goes it was pretty stuffy, I preferred the air I brought with me ;)

So! My dear and esteemed colleagues of the FH world, this past November I spent 8 days in the Palau islands scuba diving and exploring the WWII history of that gorgeous part of the world. I want to share the experience with fellow folks who enjoy their history.

For those unfamiliar, the Palau islands are about 600 miles east of the Philippines. In September of 1944 the US invaded Peleliu and Anguar, which are in the southern part of the chain. Peleliu is considered to be "the first of the worst" of the US campaigns at the latter stage of the war. Okinawa and Iwo Jima were to follow. In all three of those battles the Japanese strategy was to inflict the most damage and death to the invading Americans as possible. Entire garrisons fighting to the last man...

Blah blah blah, I bet many of you know more about the history of this than I do, I want to show you guys what I was fortunate enough to see. I brought a GoPro with me and recorded the following footage.

***Check this out***
***Check this out***

Highlights include:
  • Some pretty damn amazing scuba diving (not bragging, the underwater landscape and life was stunning).
  • B-24 Liberator wing in shallow water (Comes in around 4:38 if the diving doesn't interest you).
  • Japanese bunkers in Northern Palau
  • Sunken Japanese "Maru" with depth charges and aircraft engines in the hold. (Her actual name is unknown). Sunk by US Carrier Aircraft in March of 1944.
  • 450 foot sunken Japanese Fleet Oiler, the IJN Iro. MASSIVE. Complete with torpedo damage to the bow where she took a fish from a US Submarine en route to Palau. She reached the anchorage before being sunk by US Carrier Planes in the same attack as the Maru listed above.
  • PELELIU. Too much to even talk about... Just watch the video. If you only have a minute, skip to 8:33.

Let me know what you think guys and let me know if you have any questions! I could write for hours... Would rather just comment on stuff people are interested in.

This is awesome!!! What a treat!

Thanks Matt! I actually was thinking about your Christmas screenshots this past weekend! (While enjoying Christmas Eve playing Eppeldorf no less)

Does the RPG-43 have the streamer in-game? Seems like it would be pretty tough to do, not sure if you guys worked some magic though :)

Also, was it common for smoke grenade's to be designed to float? Seems pretty damn smart.

Some sweet masonry on that T-72. I like how they have a few of those "wiggly" patio bricks.

A modern, yet classical backyard approach to HEAT defense :)
