Well, you realize, that'll be british tanks entering...germans are defending Cagny :P

And yeah, they did, but if they'll be there or not is up to if the devs make them in time.  I think I heard somewhere though that the KT might not make it into 2.2

Well, imo, the KT is not really an IMPORTANT unit.as you said, it can always be added later(So did the Tiger tank for Mareth line, Only appeared in now 2.15)

But i believe the Churchill is a bit of an important tank, i hope it gets added with the later Patches of 2.2 soon :(

The Churchill was my favorite tank to use when playing Brits on Goodwood .7

It could take a beating from most German tanks and AT guns, and was often ignored by people trying to get the Shermans.

Wow, just wow....I´m totally speechless. Goodwood looks simply stunning and beautiful! From the minimap it looks like everyone will have fun. The treadheads have enough open space to maneuvre and the infantry guys have a big enough city to experience fierce and bloody street fighting! Also infantry has enough concealment outside the town to attack tanks from hedgerows etc.
The map really invites you to lean back, enjoy a drink and the sun :D
But yeah, there´s a war going on ^^
Ach ja, pick up G43 rifles? So these rifles aren´t spawnable, eh?
The orse glider looks great, too. And I guess we know what that means (Pegasus) ;)
Nice update and I can´t wait to see the next one (although I will be in Hungary from Monday to Sunday)!

Ye, and it wassent so tall as the sherman, i used to hide near a bunch of trees, somewhere around the eastren map.German tanks ALWAYS went trough that road to get to the Northeren towns..

Then again, it was difficult getting their before the panthers came ;)

I'd say they aren't spawnable because the Germans are defending against an army armed with bolt action rifles in this scenario.

That makes sense, yes. Not that I´ll care much about infantry fights because I´ll sit in a tank once a server plays this map :D

Oh, and Reporter, what did you just wanted to say? ^^
Oh, and what I just asked myself: What other weapons will the Panzerfaust/Schreck/Zooka/PIAT kits get?

I'm still interested in if the 88mm front will be represented.  That action was critical to the battle=/

That map .... it is not humanly possible to make it look so good on the BF2 engine. Supernatural I say.
I take my hat off the to the devs.

Awesome Map! :o
I've never seen such a perfect map in a BF2 mod.
Very great!

I want everyone on this forum to pray that glider is flyable. On Pegasus. Everyone think about that for a minute

No, because the whole concept of Pegasus - the entire existence of the scenario - relies on the fact that the british managed to land a glider just a few meters from the actual bridge... this was a 1/1000 chance, and to reproduce it in a map isn't possible, needed or necessary.. We need to be sure the allies spawn where they are supposed to, and wont fly the glider where they feel like it.. the whole concept would be destroyed... If we make a pegasus map (isn't decided yet) they will spawn in a static landed glider, mark my words.

Some other scenario can have flying gliders though, for sure!  :)
