Polski Fiat 621L "Tur" truck and Polski Fiat 508IIIW "Łazik" light staff car
Polish, Germans, Soviets, and civilians
You will have freedom to play as any of the four planned factions.
Functionality is limited and some textures are missing due to dependecy on ArmAII file structure, but it's surely a very good sign! :)
Yes, that's exactly what was meant.
Actually these are PolskiFiat cars. The 'jeep' is a 508W 'Łazik' developed in Poland by PzInż and is merely a modification of the civilian Balilla version of the Fiat 508 1935 model. Italians had their own version of it; Fiat508CM Coloniale
Also, if authenticity is your aim, you should replace the 621L with Fiat 626NM, which was the standard Italian truck of WW2:
Daje radę, ale skąd pomysł na tak fikcyjne malowanie? (poza tym , garnizonowe patki wyjściowe na kołnierzu w drelichu to też mała przeginka) ;)
Still missing a shadow-LOD on this picture, but specular and bump maps are done ;)
It may give you better view in 1st person perspective when your windshield is too broken, otherwise, it's just an eye-candy.
Unfortunately, it seems nothing can be done in this engine to prevent foliage from coming through the models... (or I just still need to learn how it's done)
Openalble doors available via user-action now.

- Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf.A
(the strange shadow in the foreground is T-28's... still need to make proper shadow-LODs)
Learning to make bump-maps... while it's fairly easy to with metal surfaces, car parts etc. it requires some training when it comes to fabric.... No sharp edges and curvy shapes are much harder to do.

Windshield folding available via user-action
Widnshield folding now available via user-action. One of the many functionalities to be implemented in the final release.
It is ArmA. :) I may have had some filters set in the editor (can't tell if it was one of the Invasion'44 or Namalsk modules though, can't remember)

Yes it was used, but in small numbers. Poland, already in the first half of 1920's, managed to sell large batches overseas to Latin America or other countries. Far more better Browning designs were chosen to replace it. Some few numbers remained deep in storage or were in service with some rear units though.

As always loving to get new updates and news from the development team. You guys work really hard and with dedication to reach the full potential offered by the engine. Once available to the public it will surely be a keeper for many years to come (just like BridgeCommander that is constantly an obligatory install on my HDD since 2002).
Waiting patiently for it to be done the way it was meant to be. Don't rush anything; we'll still have the NanoFX viewer to toy with while we wait.
Is the guy on the left smoking???

This came to my mind seeing this, instantly :)
Yes, despite earning a rather bad name during the occupation (the Polish Police force has not been disbanded by the Nazis but forced to serve along them as a support force) in September 1939 Police units did put up resistance worth mentioning.
Wz.39 MORS (latin: Death)submachinegun.
Similar in it's general construction to it's other european counterparts like the MP35 or Suomi, very much like the later Soviet PPSh. The additional wooden grip sported a metal telescope monopod for stabilization.
loo-king-good! can't wait to see it implemented in our mod too

Nah, it was only me taking cover (in 3rd person view)... and there was really no danger involved, it was merely a propaganda photo-shoot ;P
