Hello fans of the North African front,

It's that time of the month again. The time for an update!

It's been a long time since the last proper update, but it doesn't mean that we have stopped ( got stuck in the sand dunes ). This time we present you the American lend lease vehicles. The Sherman II, III and the M3 Grant.


Wikipedia wrote: The British Empire received 17,184 Sherman tanks under Lend-Lease, roughly 78% of all Shermans provided world wide under this program.

The first Shermans to see battle were M4A1s with the British Eighth Army at the Second Battle of El Alamein in October 1942. The tanks had been supplied in a hurry from the US which had removed them from their own units. They were then modified to British requirements and for desert conditions. Over 250, in 12 regiments, started the battle. They formed the "heavy squadrons" (16 tanks in each) of one brigade in each division of X Corps and some other squadrons of the other units taking part; the other heavy squadrons were still equipped with Grants and light squadrons were equipped with Crusader tanks. The Sherman's were still "outclassed" by the long gunned Panzer IV "Specials" but the British carried the battle though the Sherman units were largely out of the subsequent pursuit of the Germans. The Sherman was able to tackle enemy rearguards by using HE fired indirectly and the German Pak 50 anti-tank gun was only effective if it could engage the Sherman from the sides. More of the units in North Africa were converted to Shermans, though the infantry tank units retained their Churchills.


And for those who have missed the last sneaky updates, we have uploaded some in-game screenshots showing off the M3 Stuart, Halftrack, Crusader tanks, German troops, Halftrack and the Tiger tank in Playmobils first completely new map made for the mod.



Also a little sneak peak at what's coming ;)

Hey guys, I think you should release mod in the form its is now. Why? To show people they are not waiting for nothing. To find another people who would continue it's development. I've seen many mods almost dead, but their teams released them in this underdeveloped state, received huge acclaim and accepted new developers. Now these mods are alive and are ones of the best for their respective games.

DO NOT LET AFRIKA DIE

@Sudno
As far as I know, aidas2 (the main developer) hasn't got time for this mod, so it's mostly likely dead.
