great.
Are those thermal grenades damage tanks? Actually one to the exhaust may disable the engine so it no longer moves!

Interesting. So even though US camo jackets are in, Cobra-la-la-la-la! will be postponed to 2.25. Aside from that, having no "regular" invasion beach or Pegasus will certainly mean that wine & cheese department is going to get loud. "WAAAA! ONLI LIEK SEVEN MAPS IS TOO LITTLE WERE IS AWSUM MAPS LIEK OMAHA!!!½½½½11§§§"

Though, nice to see the 76(W), even if not necessarily in 2.2 ;) And good to hear there are "several" more maps in the works.

Again, dreams were crushed: I expected no update this week ;D

What weapons do the Canadians use? British with a couple of American thrown into the mix?

Oh, yeah, and great update ;D Getting real close now. Let's hope no nasty bugs show up.

Neither, everyone is armed with a johnson and thermite grenade  :P

Lovely map - One of the most beautiful of the conventional Normandy maps...

A tad sad about no city map or beach map - Pegasus could kiss my ass, never saw anything drastically unique about it...

Also, kinda makes sense for not having the American Howitzer, the only map it could find a place would have been Luttich - you don't climb cliffs or drop from the skies into Rommels asparagus with self propelled howitzers after all.

COld hearted and calcualted how things played out -Love the balance, 3 American, 2 Brit, 2 Canadian - Glad to see the Devs didn't get caught up in the Normandy fever and make em all American. Sure, my favorite army, but still... Save for the aforementioned hoped-for map types, I think Normandy 2.2 is a theater I can sink my teeth into

Next up: Road to Forgotten 2.2... and my last computer component to come down for it to work for me... talk about perfect timing :-)

Now that I've had time to look through the screenshots some more, I'm shocked by the amount of vehicles on this map. Among other things:

Tiger
Marder 1
Firefly
Churchill
Cromwell
Sherman 76 ?
FW 190
Tempest
Spitfire
Nebelwerfer

...and lots of Kübels, Halftracks and trucks, not to mention the awesome statics! True works of art.
This might very well turn out to be my favorite map. :)

Don't you mean Typhoon?
Don't forget 88 and Pak40

Love the windmill, factory and trenches too - Lovely setup for a nice defense, with rolling French countryside in the background.

Oh, and forgot to say that just the sheer sillines of charging through El Alamein with the Käfer is so awesome it alone should attract people to FH2. ;D Plus the Spit was a nice touch (even if it isn't Mk. IX or XIV).

Right. I think I confused it with the Tempest because it was mentioned earlier in the thread. Or was it? Whatever. Still alot of beautiful hardware!
