Yahagi


Yahagi was the second of the four vessels completed in the Agano-class of light cruisers, and like other vessels of her class, she was intended for use as the flagship of a destroyer flotilla. Larger than previous light cruisers, the Agano-class vessels were fast, but with little protection, and were under-gunned for their size:

6 x 15 cm/50 Type 41 guns (3x2)


4 x 80 mm/65 Type 98 guns (2x2)


varying amount of 25 mm/60 Type 96 AA guns


8 x 610 mm torpedo tubes (4x2)


The Yahagi underwent several upgrades where mainly the 25 mm anti-aircraft weaponry was increased. In FHSW 0.5 will be three versions of the Yahagi available: 1943, 1944 and 1945. The latter has an impressive amount of 25 mm guns as shown in the following pics.



The Yahagi took part in many battles and was lucky because she often fought her way through them without any damage.

On 6 April 1945 though the Yahagi was ordered to accompany Yamato from Tokushima for its final suicide mission against the American fleet. In this battle she was sunk by several torpedos and bombs and took 445 crewmen with her.


Ōyodo



The Ōyodo design was approved in 1939 as an enlarged and improved version of the Agano-class. It was designed to be the flagship for attack groups of submarines. Initially, plans were made for eight vessels in the class. However, only two ships were actually authorised, of which only one, Ōyodo, was laid down.

Although the same general hull design as for the Agano was adopted, the armour protection was reduced and the armament differed both in layout and weaponry:

6 × 155 mm/60 3rd Year Type guns (2x3)


8 × 100 mm/65 Type 98 AA guns (4x2)


18 × 25 mm/60 Type 96 AA guns


The Ōyodo-class ships were intended to be scouting cruisers and hence the entire deck of the ship aft of the superstructure was devoted to aircraft facilities including a heavy-duty 45 m catapult.


In 1944 this catapult was exchanged for the shorter (18 m) standard type and the hangar converted to accommodate Fleet Headquarters staff. During this refit several 25 mm AA guns were added. This variant is also included in FHSW 0.5!

Battlegroup42 Kurzfilm: Die Schlacht um Ortona

Das Battlegroup42 Team grüßt die Community und meldet sich mit einer besonderen News. Diesmal geht es nicht um Neuigkeiten in der Mod selbst: Die Jungs vom ungarischen FPS-Klub, seit Jahren treue Battlegroup42-Fans, haben ein durchaus episch zu nennendes Video gedreht, in dem sie die Schlacht um Ortona auf der entsprechenden BG-Map nachspielen. Wir wollen euch das auf keinen Fall vorenthalten. Viel Spaß beim Zuschauen. Übrigens: Gerne posten wir auch eure BG42-Videos, wenn sie gut gemacht sind!

lol buschhans, I see you've found yet another forum where you can dump your copy/paste news. :P

btw. this particular news was posted about two months ago on this forum, just saying.

80mm aa guns? never heard of that calibre, where they effective?
I think the real caliber was 76.2 mm but the offical designation was 80 mm for a reason I don't know. Seems like they were only used on the Agano class. Considered to be a satisfactory weapon with no serious problems. However, it did have a short barrel life.

Nur weil du es nicht spielst brauchst du meinen post nicht durch den reck zu ziehen?
Da sind noch aktive Modder die sich bemühen etwas kostenlos auf die Beine zu stellen.
Mache mir sehr gern für diese klugen Köpfe die mühe ihre News weiterzutragen.
Das hat nichts mit Copy und Pst zu tun, viel mehr mit andere mit zu begeistern.
Du hast recht die News gabs schon vor ein paar Wochen auf der JPN FHSW wmbuse.com webseite!
Aber es hat keiner die Bilder klein gemacht und die News zu gestückelt das man sie verteilen kann.
Übrigens, die neue FHSW erntet viel Zuspruch, die Leute interessieren sich dafür, also tu ich das richtige!
Denn ich tu es nicht für mich, sondern für uns! Und für die Menschen die sich die Arbeit für uns machen!

BF 1918 3.1 Mod Download:

http://www.bf-games.net/downloads/category/37/battlefield_1918html
------------

This is more like a new feature. For some time, it was asked if it was possible to remove the 64 maximum players limit in Battlefield 1942. Some years ago, someone had a found a way to remove that limit in Battlefield 2, which led to a 128 player server for Project Reality mod. Fortunately, I could find where in the server code is that limit with the help of a friend ....

"Tuia" also developed the two  FIX patches to prevent the exploits (game.createLocalPlayer and game.setTeam) which crashed BF 1942 Servers worldwide!

It's time for another news update on the final release of Battlegroup42 ! We're quite surprised that we're still able to find new content for our already extensive mod. In the past few weeks we were able to integrate three new, rather unique planes, which we'll show you in this news.



The first plane strenghtens our Australian forces: The CA-12 "Boomerang" was a single-seated fighter and close support aircraft which had been developed in a record-breaking time by its developer CAC (Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation) in 1941/42. Back then, Australia was threatened by a Japanese invasion and air raids, and therefore in desperate need of fighter planes. With the situation given it had been very difficult to obtain planes from the USA or the UK, so CAC came into its own and started designing a new fighter. The Boomerang handled well, and was very well-armed with two 20mm Hispano or CAC cannons, four 0.303 in Browning machine guns and could be fitted with bombs. But the Boomerang's low top speed and poor high altitude performance made it rather useless for its intended role as interceptor. It eventually found its niche as a close support aircraft for the troops on the ground. In this role it was successfully used in New Guinea, the Solomon Island Campaign and the Borneo Campaign. Our model was created and textured by RuppDee.



Our next plane comes from Klallo, an artist not belonging to the BG42 team: The Grumman J2F "Duck", a four-seated amphibious biplane, which was used by the US forces for mapping, scouting/observation, anti-submarine patrol, photographic surveys and reconnaissance, and target tug duties.
In Battlegroup42 this nice model replaces the "Wildcatfish" on the warship catapults, since it was only an interim solution in BG42 and only existed as a prototype in reality. Our "Duck" is a F-2 version, armed with a forward firing .30 cal Browning machine gun, a dual .30 cal Browning in the rear cockpit and small bombs. The catapult version has no bombs, but instead the ability to spot targets for the ships artillery. Our modeler RuppDee also creates a new, more realistic cockpit for the "Duck".



The final plane in this news was also produced by an exterior developer: The Blohm & Voss BV138, being the first big flying boat in BG42, was modeled and textured by FangioDesign. On our maps it is used either as a static model or as naval reconnaissance aircraft. The original plane served extensivly with several coastal air wings of the German Luftwaffe, mostly used for long-range naval reconnaissance, anti-shipping, anti-submarine and minesweeping duties. Our BV138 is a version C-1, equipped with a defensive armament of two 20mm MG151 cannons, one 7,92mm MG15 and six SC50 bombs.



We have also updated our mod-contents list which will be linked on our website shortly. For those of you who want to take an early glimpse at it please follow this link:
BATTLEGROUP 42 Content check list!

That's it for today. There'll surely be more news ahead, so stay tuned and most of all faithful :-)

EoD v2.50 preview - Operation Enogerra

Operation Enogerra was an operation of the Australian Forces near Saigon.
In this map we have the first large tunnel system in Battlefield 1942. The tunnel was made by ike some months ago.
Very awesome: the bots go into the tunnels so be prepared soldiers!

Here's a video trailer of the new map and you can see a small part (~15%) of the tunnels in this map.

Installation
Die Installation erfordert
WinRaR

Auf jedem Computer unter Windows 98 oder höher sollte .NET Framework 2.0 installiert sein.

1. Laden Sie das Programm
here

2. Extrahieren Sie den Inhalt der .rar Datei überall wo Sie den updater installiert haben wollen.

Um das Programm zu starten, starten Sie die Custom-Karten Updater.exe und extrahieren mit dem Custom-Maps updater in den Ordner.

Anwendung

Wenn Sie das Programm starten, sollte es zuerst wie folgt (je nach Betriebssystem) aussehen.
Starten Sie, indem Sie auf die Schaltfläche "Ordner Battlefield 1942" auswählen.


Suchen Sie im Fenster, das angezeigt wird einfach Ihr Battlefield 1942-Ordner
(in meinem Fall, C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\) wählen Sie den Pfad aus, und klicken Sie auf OK.
Es wird dann in den Bereich installiert den sie ausgewählt haben. Sie müssen den Pfad nicht erneut eingeben, wenn Sie in Zukunft die Maps "aktualisieren" möchten.


Nun, da das Programm weiß, wo Ihr Battlefield 1942-Ordner ist, drücken Sie die Schaltfläche "Check for Updates"
und das Programm wird versuchen, die benutzerdefinierte-Karten Dateien zu erkennen die Sie haben und die, die noch fehlen.


Jetzt zeigt ihnen das Programm, dass eine neue aktuelle Map zum Download bereit steht, die ihnen noch fehlt.
Dann drücken sie auf update, wie unten im Bild beschrieben.


Wenn die Schaltfläche "Aktualisieren" anklickbar ist, bedeutet dies, dass Sie aktualisieren können. Klicken Sie darauf und Sie werden sehen, dass die Bar zu aktualisieren beginnt.
Wenn das update fertig ist, erhalten Sie eine Meldung, dass die Aktualisierung abgeschlossen wurde.


Notizen
Sie können auch die "Map Index Anzeige Liste" überprüfen (siehe im unteren Bild), wenn Sie eine vollständige Liste aller vorhandenen Karten ansehen möchten,
die installiert und vollständig aktualisiert wurden.


Wenn es Updates für das Programm gibt, wird es Ihnen beim Programm Start mitgeteilt.
Sie aktualisieren es  dann Manuell von Hand.
