Now me and my Panther has something to fear, the M4A1(76)W...
Only the side armor my friend. Unless the M4A1 76 has special ammo, nothing to fear.   But the gun has a far higher velocity then the regular sherman, so it will require much less time to aim at you.


Just fear the Firefly and Achilles.
Fear it.NOW

About the realism rating for each map - Can anyone link me to where the North African maps were rated according to their percentage true-to-life-ness?

thanks for the list... Interesting... It seems like a trend - The most interesting are the most historically accurate

Hope Totalize is the exception, it just looks so-o-o pretty!

Well, there are one or two things we haven't shown yet ;)

(No... Not the 105mm howitzer or the GMC truck, they're not in 2.2...)

More flamethrowers, heck yes :D

I think the 76mm Sherman will be further down the list of your worries my friend  ;)

Considering it was shown long ago, I bet it will be.

At last final map revealed! This means that release is imminent. Now you got me all excited. :D

I like the look Totalize alot. Absolutely awesome work Fenring and Toddel (Fenring is supreme god of tank maps!). I don't really care if it may not be totally accurate as long it plays well.  :)

Ohh and nice to see that you have made Pointe du Hoc so special with addition of Termiitti grenade.

wow, wow - Hold on there, slugger... The material for such things can only exist once 2.2 is out... Until then its labeled 'top secret' like everything else

Not a bad thing too - Otherwise,we'd have fanmaps that play VERY different from the way FH2 Normandy will play. It's nice for people to get a feel for the gameplay of 2.2 first before they did in... AND it makes the period between 2.2 and 2.whatever is next the more interesting

Personally, I was very impressed with the increase in fanmaps that came out after 2.1 and 2.15 - It seems that niche is flourishing nicely.
