Today Ace delves into the history of Color Film Pre-1920.  Please note that because he tried to focus on World War I specifically, an audio recording of the battlefield on the Western Front was included at the end as well.

Hip-firing these heavy weapons makes me remember a visit to the Military History Museum at my town. I was 14 or 15 back then and I started a long conversation with one of the "guides" (the man who stands there to explain stupid tourists what does RPG mean). Appearantly he tought I was a cool guy so he let me hold a PTRS AT rifle altough it was absolutely forbidden to touch the exponats. Christ... that thing was heavy as hell. The whole room started gigling while watching me struggling to lift the damn thing.

Anyways, have you noticed the fire rate of the German MGs. Lack of brrrrrrrrah and lack of any sort of recoil too.

Was the M1903A1 with a 7.8x scope used in the Western Front?


Also, hip-fire Lewis MG and MG15!

For some reason, the reveal trailer had an endless "I confirm" loop for me, no matter what browser, but a mirror link worked.

A few scenes seemed cinematic, but otherwise it seems to have been made to be a slideshow rail shooter with 055um m0men7z (endless swarm of Stukas attacking wing to wing etc).
5 words: black female US airborne soldier. Why don't we have such on FH2?
Better yet: Black female SS soldier.
There were black German soldiers and SS did have auxiliary females (SS-Helferin), so that's almost plausible. Actually, it's more plausible than all the plots in the entire franchise together.

Is that a reference to somebody?

Watch his videos and you'll find out he means pretty much everyone else.
Including me when I killed him with an AT rifle on Gazala.
