Men of War: Assault Squad is the new title in the Men of War series. Assault Squad takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and – for the first time ever in the Men of War series – Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility. The expansion pack will deliver fans and newcomers an intense new WW2 spectacle with almost limitless replayability.

Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique “direct control” feature which enables players to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.

This series of articles are going to showcase the weapons used by both sides during the invasion that are going to be featured in the mod.

To start the series lets talk about the rifles. Many were used by both sides, from Bolt-Actions, like the Springfield 1903 or the Mosin, to modern select fire weapons like the FN-FAL.

M1 Garand

The M1 Garand rifle was developed in the 1930's, being adopted as the standard rifle for the US Military around 1936. It was widely used during World War 2, and it was already spreading throughout the world during that conflict, specially in Latin America, through the Lend Lease program.

During the Cuban revolution the M1 Garand was the standard rifle for both the Rebels and the Cuban Army. As for the time of the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban were already adopting new rifles, but it was widely used by the invading exiles.

The M1 Garand is a semi-automatic gas operated rifle in the caliber .30-06. It's loaded with 8 round "en-bloc" clips, and makes a distinct "ping" sound when fully emptied.

M1941 Johnson


The Johnson semi-auto rifle was developed in 1939 by Melvin Johnson, with the intention of it being adopted as a standard weapon for the US military. However the M1 Garand was already being issued to the troops.

The Johnson rifle ended up being issued to the US Marines after a order of a few thousands for the belgians became stuck in the United States during World War 2. The rifle saw some use in the Pacific Theather, but never became as iconic as the Garand.


Due to a large amount of Johnson rifles being available in 1960's, it was adopted as a "standard" weapon for the CIA trained exiles. It was issued with bayonets and a scoped version was also available.

The M1941 Johnson is a semi-automatic, recoil operated rifle. It has a internal, non detachable, 10 round circular magazine, that can be loaded with 5 round Springfield clips or single rounds. It fires the same .30-06 ammunition that the M1-Garand.

FN FAL


The FN FAL was developed by the belgian arms manufacturer company Fabrique Nationale de Herstal, it is a select fire battle rifle, designed to fire the NATO standard 7,62x51mm ammo. It was adopted by several countrys as a standard rifle during the Cold War.

In Cuba the FAL was already in use,in small numbers, by the Rebels during the Revolution. And it was being delivered at the island during the 1960's, with intention to make it the standard infantary weapon of the Cuban army and militias.In 1961 the FAL was widespread in the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces.

Several pictures show FAR soldiers and MNR militiamen carring FALs during the Bay of Pigs invasions.




The FN FAL is a select fire gas operated weapon, it can be fired at both full auto and semi automatic modes. Its loaded with a 20 round detachable box magazine.

Hello friends could help me?
When I select a unit in the AS1 or give an order to a selected unit game freezes for 1 second and then returns to normal, it is repeated every time I return to select a drive. This had never happened before me, and not by the graphics I have put the maximum and the minimum and still the same. Sorry for my bad English Use google translator.

Highest Rated (20 agree) 8/10

Assault Squad is essentially the shinier more visually appealing version of Men of War, I dont find that it adds a lot other than the skirmish mode, some new maps. some new units, and some new models replacing pre-existing ones. It's not exactly groundbreaking however, seeing as it pretty much builds off of the success of it's predecessor, I'm really not even sure why Assault squad was even made, my guess was targetting a streamlined Multiplayer platform, but the game is equally popular as a singleplayer…

Lowest Rated (16 agree) 3/10

Men of War is successful because each game naturally generates its own narrative. It is brilliant because it has character. It is great because (in campaign missions at least) you feel attached to your troops. Assault Squad is Men of War minus all of this, and is horrid. Its lone addition is the new Skirmish mode: a depressing, soulless grind against entrenched AI. Instead of wire-tight combat against a fellow human comes wave after wave of artificially buffed but simple-minded robots; in place…
