Most kinda figured it once the update was read through... And the devs don't make much of a secret about how possibly soon it will be in their responses...

Ah, to cruise those fields in a tank... or flit around in a plane like a fairy blessing tankers below with a touch of your wan... 'mouse button' causing them to sprawl among the chrysanthemums... in flashes of light and warmth... and burning charred steel

I consider that one a tank destroyer\buster aircraft... Was referring to the FH190 with bomb

Nice stuff devs.

You'all haven't missed a lick in putting out the quality.

My first though was "what can thermite grenades do to troops?" but that has been well answered.

I like the idea that you can choose your poison (armor, infantry, air) to administer.

Good job and looking forward to your soon release.   :)

Wich appear in only one map.....

The Hurribomber should appear on more maps, like Supercharge for once.

This map seems like the sole Normandy equivalent of el Alamein or Mareth - nice to meet you, map number 7

Wow.

Those FW190's almost made my eyes pop out. Love the lighting of this map.

Feel like it's really rounding up now, FH-beta testers running their mouths and all.

And those typhoons will be kept at bay.

Foke-Wolf 190 is one of the most aerodynamic planes of the war due to its engine cowling.

Therefore, the thing should be fast ingame.

I think so.

Anyone else have problems with 1:1 scale maps? Hundreds of people fought in these battles while we only have 64?

Seriously though, congrats fat joe, doubly so since you are only a simple Icelander.

NB.. a simple Icelander.. not a complex one :D

Imo, The Firefly should have a few APDS rounds. They where as rare as PZG 40, but became common in late 1944.

You said it there, late 1944. Normandy campaign was over by then. So maybe later?

Nice update! And congratulations to FatJoe!
