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.

About BattleGroup42 with 1 comment by truth_hun on Mar 28th, 2015


We'd like to begin with a piece of work from Kraetzer, who made his final contribution to the mod with a beautifully detailed model of the Renault UE prime mover. This small, unarmed tractor was ubiquitous in 1940 during the battles in France and Belgium and served as a transport vehicle and prime mover for the French. Later on many of these vehicles were taken over by the Wehrmacht. In BG42 it will only be used be the French though, coming in two variants: As an unarmed support vehicle with a reload/repair function for the French forces, and as prime mover for the French 47mm APX anti-tank gun. It replaces the Lafffly S15TOE on all European maps, since it was only used in the French colonies.

With another unarmed vehicle we begin our series of Gauranga models for this news, namely the long awaited SdKfz. 7 half-track. It too was present on all fronts the Germans fought on. The sturdy and powerful vehicle was used as troop transport, recovery vehicle and mainly as prime mover for artillery pieces. In BG42 it will be available as an unarmed support vehicle with reload/repair function as well as prime mover for the sFH 18 on many maps, and comes in two versions, a closed version with canopy and one without. As a special candy SargeSurfat (texture) and Sarge31FR (model) modified the SdKfz. 7 to an Italian licensed version Breda 61. It will be present on many maps, replacing inappropriate German equipment we had to use as stopgap solutions.

Let's stay with the half-tracks: Thanks to Gauranga we were able to replace the original Battlefield 1942 M3 half-track with our own model. Sarge31FR used it as a base for all our variants, like the M21 Mortar Carrier and the self-propelled guns like the M16, T19 HMC and M3 GMC. Completely new to BattleGroup 42 is the SdKfz. 4/1, also known as the Panzerwerfer 43. The 4/1 is an armored version of the half-tracked Opel Maultier, equipped with ten 15cm launcher tubes in a fully traverseable turret. It was introduced in 1943, and can be found on some maps in the second half of the war, accompanied by an unarmed ammo transporter version - the launcher only carried enough ammunition for two salvos.

With this we've reached the end of our second part of the model presentation. We will continue the presentation with a third news, which will follow shortly. It too will feature some surprising and exciting last-minute additions. So make sure to check out www.battlegroup42.de from time to time!

The reason that Battlefield 1942 so popular is that you can take all king of trucks, tanks, even planes.
The most powerfull plane if for example the B-17 with the capacity over a 8 bombs he can drop off at the target. That's so cool about that game.
You have in this game also many mods.
This game is great !!

When I started playing BF1942 Back in 2002, I never thought it would keep its appeal 5 years later.
What keeps BF1942 Alive and fun ARE THE Mods and the community. You have almost an entire array of different Mods with dozens of maps on each. My Favs : Desert Combat, XWW2 & Eve Of Destuction .
Getting online playing against others is a real blast...amazing stories to tell too :One night as I was being shelled by a tank with no antitank weapon or ammo saw no way of escape...till my teammates dropped a few well placed bombs from a plane they were flying... I was saved!
Sometimes a game comes along that changes everything... BF1942 Is that game

OMG!!
Battlefield 40K!

I am at work at the moment and have just downloaded - can't wait to get home and play!

I seriously, seriously believe that the Battlefield franchise has really hit the nail on the head! Especially considering it's (everybody's favourite-NOT!) developer - EA.

If people weren't here doing Mods and Patches for this - EA would not still be around today, i swear! someone tell EA games to do some decent, proper patch support for their games...either that or stick to the consoles! (sorry, just resent them slightly for taking over Westwood and destroying all that was command & conquer with an embarresment such as Generals! RIP RED alert 2 :( )

IN ANY CASE! YES!! c'mon, what a great idea, Warhammer in the battlefield format, its like, the perfect concept! i cannot wait!
