Would play WaW with you Lainer but lack the time for it.. Can't play on fixed times  :P

The only fixed time is a 10 hour window every Saturday whenever you feel like it over a 4 month period.  I think you can swing that.

Mersa Matruh as far as I recall is a 1:1 remake of the real battle, hell theres a WW2 picture of the mosque lurking somewhere in the forums

How did I just see this thread. Absolutely Impressive... Fine work gentlemen, to those designing and building the maps and those documenting the comparisons!  :o

Edit: Reviewing the pictures of Pointe Du Hoc, the battle damage of the bunkers and only make you just imagine what happened... I know for me it brings eerie images of fighting and the screams of the soldiers whom that would be there last fight.

Yea, it's indeed amazing. Nice job with the pictures as well as with the accurate map design :) Just seems there could be a little bit more green around, especially close to the rocks and the beach. Or do did that all vanish within the artillery fire ?

In 1944 PDH was more looking like the moon than a peacefull field like today due to the arty fire so the FH2 map is more than accurate on this point ;)

Should be closer to luttich type bocage density imo
and m4a1 should be fitted with this ;)

Agreed, to have been in this aera and to have read really good books on this battle (29th US Infantry and their advance to Saint Lo) all the report, veterant and historian are talking about the density of bocage and the nightmare of the bloodly hedgerow fight !!!
IMO more Bocage on this map would be welcome ;)
