Shouldn't New Zealand have similar uniforms on Mt. Olympus?

Wow, and I thought the old stuff will never get a faceliftin'! Keep it up, mate, great job!

I'm glad to see that even if those in the "land down under" might have forgotten 'bout FH2  the devs still remember them!

Oh Awesome :o I didn't know anybody rendered these, thanks Roughbeak!

I'm glad we can show some proper love to the Aussies and make them more of a distinct army. 2AIF 6th Infantry Division 2/1 Battalion to be specific ;)

On which maps will new skins be used?

Just like Jan said, Bardia and Giarabub. At Bardia the Australians famously wore their greatcoats during the assault, but since BF2 doesn't handle coats well, it was easy to go with the next best thing. Just like the update says, they were still equip with their WW1 Service Dress underneath which is similar enough to the Normandy Commonwealth uniforms to be re-skinned. They still used the SD throughout the winter of '41 (when Giarabub takes place) and didn't fully change over to the commonwealth battledress until Tobruk.

Shouldn't New Zealand have similar uniforms on Mt. Olympus?

I certainly thought about it, I just don't have enough research to see how similar the NZ uniforms in Greece are to this uniform. If any history buffs have some good resources, it's clear that the devs aren't averse to updating their old assets ;D

Hope you guys like 'em!

While you're around may I ask if we'll get Matt's historical skins for Jeeps and tanks ?

I think there is. If you have Forgoten Honor Updater you can install Matt's skins and remove.

Thank you so very much! That is one of the grandest updates in a long time! Please keep up the great work regarding the early war content. I would also like to ask for Mr. Baker's magnificent vehicle texture packs to be included in the next release.

I hope to be, I just gotta find the time to finish my shit :P

While you're around may I ask if we'll get Matt's historical skins for Jeeps and tanks ?

It's been discussed a few times but as of right now it's kind of impractical for a few reasons. But like Ivancic said, there are some people helping find ways to make it easier to download and install. And I'll probably be updating it soon :)

I'm glad you guys like the uniforms! I figured they'd go slightly unnoticed with all the other updates this next patch is gonna have :D Thanks!
