The Battlefield 2-modification "Battlefield: Korea" deals with the Korean War (1950 - 1953), which is also known as "Forgotten War".
The main fractions are: (UN) US, South Korea against North Korea and China.
Most weapons and vehicles which used in the Korean War became famous during WWII (T-34/85, PPSh-41, M1 Garand, M1/M2 Carbine,...) but there were also innovations -
for instance weapons and tanks which were developed during WWII but came to late to gain significance (i.e. the M26 Pershing tank or the 3.5" M20 Super Bazooka) or jets which were used by both sides in big quantities for the first time (F-80 Shootingstar, F-86 Sabre, MiG-15,..)

Our goal is an adequate mix of realism and 'simple gameplay' focusing on historical accuracy and fun.

Hey!
This is our latest BF-Korea news update.
We are sorry for the long period of absence which was due to final exams at school some of our hardcore developers had to take. But some weeks ago we could continue our work and now we can proudly present our results.

First of all we will do the start-up with the Hanyang Type 88 rifle. It was widley used by Chinese forces during the Second Sino-Japanese War. This bolt-action rifle was a copy of the German WWI Gewehr 88 of inferior quality and the production was stopped when the Hanyang arsenal was shut down in 1947. However, this rifle represents the big varity of bolt-action rifles used during the Korean War.


Our second model is another bolt-action rifle that was used by the Chinese forces: the Japanese Arisaka Type 99. During World War Two the Chinese captured huge quantities of these rifles and used them to extend their insufficient arsenals.


The next model depicts the Czech Zb vz.26. This light machine gun was produced before World War Two and has been exported to China. It is the ancestor of the famous British Bren LMG.


The DP-28. Since the DP was a very important weapon for the Communist forces, we completly re-did the model and skin of this soviet-produced light machine gun in replacement for the old model.


Last but not least: The jewel of this news update.
The M72 motorbike with sidecar. These soviet-built motorbikes were copies of the German BMW R-71. After World War Two they saw combat in the Korean War. They have been used by North-Korean motorized units and were armed with the DP-28.
It was exported and coded by c_A_p_o_N_e


Now we will concentrate on other essential tasks like modelling statics so that we can create Korean War-themed maps.

Regards,
your BFK-Team

It's a shame that this mod is dead. It looks good and there are no games set in the Korean War.
But I see that you have some very nice Russian weapons there. If you wish to give them an use, you can give them to the Forgotten Hope 2 modteam; they will include the Soviet Red Army in the next version of their mod for Battlefield 2.
Regards.

Sorry guys, I am the old public relations guy from this mod. It is sadly dead now, and I can't get a hold of the files as they were just removed from the ftp.

That is NOT to say that the excellent models will not go to use in another AAA+ mod.

I will update this page when I have more news to tell you, but until then, if any have questions, you can PC me.

It is sad to see a mod that had so much potential die, and believe me, I was its biggest follower. My grandfather was in the Korean war for the full 3 years of the conflict.

This was my way of connecting with him...

Thanks for all the fans over the years. We made the mod have a great community that will never be forgotten.

does this have SP support??
I suggest you mates to include other Cold War conflicts such as the Cuban Revolution, Congo, South American insurgencies againts USA supported coups d'etat, China, etc. and doing so create the only mod about the Cold War, other than Vietnam War. its such a good idea don't now why nobody done it yet...
