The mod... Home Front version 2 is the second major release by the Home Front team and is now officially available for Battlefield Vietnam. Basically...
Whats Home Front?
Home Front is Science Fiction Based mod for BattleField Vietnam. Humanity's Home Front is being invaded and its up to you to either conquer humanity or save it. With the 64 person environment Home Front delivers a unique experience to the player. It includes a large variety of vehicles, maps, weapons and gameplay, such as Space combat. As you read on through this little explanation of Home Front, you'll find out whats in the mod, and whats going to be in it. Also, How we would like to thank Bungie Studios and Microsoft.
Well, as you may have heard, we have released a version for Battlefield 1942, which was a great release, showing what we were capable of doing, and what we'd started. Since then however, we have updated and improved our mod, and released it for Battlefield Vietnam, under the name Home Front version 2.
What about Bungie and Microsoft? Do they care?
Here at Home Front, We're paying homage to Halo and simply trying to expand on the halo universe. Imagine Halo in a much more multi player sense, with larger battles and more vehicles then you've ever seen in the game! We're also trying to give the Halo fan something to do while they waits for the n ext Halo game. We do not use any physical property of Halo, and we base a lot of our stuff on the official Halo books.

Admiral Stanforth sighed as he looked at the statstics from the last few battles the UNSC and Covenant had engaed in. It had been almost a month since Reach had fallen, and Doctor Halseys' prediction of Earth having a standard year left had shrunk to a couple of months.

Subject: Battle statistics from last three months of UNSC action
Classification: Security level 3 (BGX Directive)
In the last four battles, the UNSC had lost thirty-five frigates, twenty-one destroyers, eighteen cruisers, and one carrier. Over 5000 personnel, and two worlds to the Covenant juggernaut. Infantry has suffered severe losses in all sectors...
Stanforth didn't bother himself with reading the rest of the file, he'd heard more bad news in the last week than in the rest of his life. With the Covenant at Earth's door step, it seemed impossible for humanity to stop their imminent discovery of Earth. A last effort to stop the Covenant was being devised, and the spooks at ONI had said that if their plan was executed with efficiency, humanity had more of a chance for survival. He read the file all the way through and winced inwardly as he read the civilian loss of life. Over 200,000,000 people had died, slaughtered by the Covenant. He closed the file and laid his face in his hands. This would be the most trying time for humanity. It would either be their finest hour, or their utter defeat. The Covenant had entered the Human Home Front, they always knew the Covenant would find Earth...now it was time to do something about it.
