Battlefield: 1942 is a tactical first-person shooter set in World War II. It introduces combined arms tactics, using tanks and dive-bombers, submarines and carriers, and machinegun nests with AA-artillery. Every aspect of WWII warfare will be accessible to a player and his friends from an FPS perspective, and the ultimate goal is to win enough campaigns to win the war.

Warfront 3.1 Update


Today, I present to you the latest additions to the 'Front, as well as some news on the upcoming release.

I will start by welcoming the Sd.Kfz. 173, better known as the Jagdpanther ("hunting panther"), to the battlefield.

jagd1

In 1944, with the war turning against the Germans, defensive guns were needed more than assault tanks. The Sd. Kfz. 173 was one answer for the advancing Allied troops. The Jagdpanther combined the 8.8 cm KwK 43 cannon of the Tiger II with the armor and suspension of the Panther chassis.

jagd2

It was a very lethal match of good mobility and armor with a devastating gun platform. If you play the Allies, beware a frontal attack against these monsters. Given that this is a turretless tank, it's much better to attack from the side, where the armor is thinner and the driver has no view.


Next up, the Sd. Kfz 138/1, commonly called the Grille ("cricket" in English).

grille1

The Grille was based on the Czech Panzer 38(t) tank chassis and used a 15 cm sIG 33 howitzer as it's main gun for infantry support.

grille2

This gives Germany a very mobile, large caliber infantry gun that can be rapidly moved anywhere on the battlefield for excellent artillery support. It suffers from thin armor, however, so care should be shown when operating it to stay away from the main battle front.

grille3

Like all other SPG's in the mod, it comes in both the 2 man multi-player and 1 man single-player versions.


Below is the current changelog for version 3.1. This version will be a full install version, not a patch. I made several changes to maps and files to fix problems concerning Campaign mode and server play, and these will not overwrite existing files. You will be required to delete you current Warfront directory from your Mods folder before extracting this version.

Is there any BF1942 mod with realistic flying - WW2 dogfight simulation? Like "IL-2 Sturmovik" or something.
