Fall of Saigon is a Vietnam War modification for the Half-Life 2: source engine. The modification will be based in the realism of the Vietnam War, trying to portray things, events, and places as they actually were. The gameplay will also reflect as much of the realistic feeling as the development team is able to portray. The game will recreate the feeling of the jungle, or place the player in Saigon, or anywhere in between. The player will be emersed in all the sights and sounds of the jungle and will be able to use them to their advantage, and if they're not careful, it could be as dangerous as the enemy. Grab a rifle and enlist today.

Lots has been going on at Fall of Saigon headquarters, and today we have an exciting news post to share with you. Raygae and AwesomePossum have finished off our first Player model for the USA team. This will be the player model for the Rifleman class. Raygae is already hard at work on the next model for our sniper class. So expect more updates on that later. Our weapon animator The_Unknown_1 has been working hard on getting our weapons ready to go in game, and today we can show off our AK47 and Ka-Bar knife Animations.

I did notice that, but even still, his torso just looks slightly elongated compared to his lower half.

Great anims and everything! But the character's legs look too short, and the knees are a bit undefined.

the legs do look a bit short, but could also be caused by that his trousers are a bit short,or at least were the two legs end at the top. don't know how to describe this well in English, i'm Dutch.
but i hope you know what i mean.
other then that, everything looks great, LOVE the animations!!

great work,
