No, it is against tanks. Like the Pak on Omaha, but for the heavy infantry gun.

Suppose won't be much tank left after that thing hits it

The only thing worse than these games are people who complain about them. Did you really expect historical accuracy from a mainstream action FPS game? As others have pointed out, even BF1942 was unauthentic and unrealistic, but no one complains about that.

There's a fine line between demanding complete historical accuracy and just wanting an immersive environment. Nobody in their right mind would demand Battlefield games to have a set of weapons per maps or time periods, or having the correct uniforms. Nobody complained about BF1942 having an STG44 in desert maps.

What bothers most people however is the opposite: blatant disregard for history and rewriting it as they see fit. If they wanted to include woman in their game, nobody would have complained if they portrayed them as resistance fighters or Soviet units taking some artistic liberties along the way. But putting woman in as frontline troops for the British army is just nonsense, especially combined with an overabundance of races and ridiculous looking outfits. Especially if they claim their game to be a historical portrayal.

Those are... interesting tactics. Why is everyone crawling when the front of the group is already running over the hill? And why is the PPSH guy in the foreground aiming at his own guys?

Is that an Asian guy holding the sniper rifle? I know there is 442nd infantry regiment consisted of mainly Japanese Americans, but boy, this is full on historical rewriting.

Believe it or not but these are supposed to be British soldiers.
Also I think the Asian is a woman, not a guy.

Jesus how stupid are these kinds of people. He should tell his daughter she can't make a female character in a WWII game because historically in that conflict they did not participate in combat (bar a few exceptions) but served other roles instead, which is just how the history is and a lot has changed since then. His argument is retarded.

I read this thread before watching the trailer and thought surely it's not that bad. Well, what the fuck was that woman  ???

Considering all the features they are talking about the game could be really good but they REALLY screwed up with that trailer. How did no one at DICE/EA think that putting a bunch of rambos (including a woman with prostetic arm) in a WWII environment was going to backfire horribly. Official trailer almost has 300k dislikes rofl.

I'm very confused about this game right now. The features and the direction of the game, that they talked about in the reveal and told community contributors, sound really good. It seems like they are putting a huge amount of detail into every aspect of the game (movement, destruction, gun play, custimization, etc.) and slowing down gameplay by reducing ammo and health, implementing animations for picking up ammo or reviving etc. and improving squad play. This all sounds great tbh and is exactly the direction Battlefield needs to go (back to).

But then there was the reveal trailer and holy crap that looked like shit. I can only hope it was a big mistake revealing the game this way and that it is not representative of the actual multiplayer experience. We'll just have to wait and see.

Did they say anything about eastern front or will this be another western front only game?

Initial locations are France, The Netherlands and Africa. However they promised free DLC and updates so Eastern Front is certainly to be expected imo. Along with Italy and the Pacific.
It will be a 'game as a service' approach meaning they'll likely keep adding content for free and generate income by selling customization items.

Recon seems more likely, as the PzII wouldn't have enough space for all the radio's to be a command vehicle. But then again late war they might've just used anything they could get their hands on.

USS Missouri transfers personnel to the USS Iowa in advance of the surrender ceremony planned for September 2nd 1945.

Did they transfer personnel across those ropes? I thought that was for goods/fuel only. That's mental lol.

They could've gone with a little more convincing dummy gun though. It looks like they glued a toilet paper roll onto it lol.

One could argue that the rise of the US war machine is one of the modern wonders of the world.

After a quick search I think they use different paint jobs for different squadrons.
Note how the second and fourth plane have darker paint jobs on top and different and numbers.
