Operation Peacekeeper is a modern warfare modification for the popular game Battlefield 2, based on a fictional development of the actual Kosovo conflict. The mod features two different sides - the German Bundeswehr and the Serbian VSCG - engaging in the rough and mountainous terrain of Kosovo. Both use state of the art military weapon systems like the German Leopard 2A6 MBT, as well as older, but yet still effective equipment, like the Russian build Mi24V Hind E used by the Serbian forces. The maps cover a large array of different settings, such as for example a domestic port, a small village, or a military airport attacked by German airborne troops.
After we have presented the Fennek ingame last week, we want to show you the tiny Wiesel MK20.
Posted by Schuldi on Jun 30th, 2008
Right after this nail-biting Sunday evening we just continue with joyful and exciting news. We want to present the small and agile Wiesel. With its 20mm Machinegun the Wiesel is able to fire AP (Armor-Piercing) anf HE (High Explosive) Ammo. The AP shell is best used against hard targets like tanks while the HE shell is normally used against soft targets for exaple Infantry or unarmored vehicles.
Like in reality the pivoting range of the MK20 is restricted and cannot be turned around its own axle. Since the Wiesel has only one seat, it will not play the transporter's role ingame. Instead it will provide supporting fire. Despite its little size the enemy tank drivers and Infantrymen should not underestimate the Wiesel. The AP-shell is a very powerful weapon against tanks and the Infantrymen are not safe in their dugouts or behing corners anymore.
Beside the following screenshots Peacecamper has found the time to make a small Video by the help of Neander and Schuldi. The Video will show the Wiesel in different situations.
Of course this video can be found in our Vimeo-Channel in better quality:
We hope you enjoyed this Update and really are looking forward to a soon release. Your OPK-Team
