The Battlefield 2 total conversion historical realism modification "Battlefield: Korea" deals with the Korean War (1950 - 1953), which is also known as the "Forgotten War".

Report RSS Autumn update

Today we just want to show off more various vehicles for the mod.

Posted by on

Hello everybody. Welcome to another Battlefield: Korea news update. Today we want to show off some more of our vehicles.

First we will start off with our mounted Willys Jeep which uses the .50 Cal M2HB heavy machine gun.

Next up are our amphibious/water craft for Operation Chromite, the amphibious assault on Inchon Harbor that involved over 75,000 men.

Here is the LVCP Higgin's boat with a m1919 .30 Cal LMG.

Next is our LVT-4 Amtrac courtesy of the Forgotten Hope 2 Community Map Pack Pacific Theater.

Next up we have a really awesome artillery vehicle. The Katyusha BM-13 Multiple Launch Rocket System. This comes to us courtesy of Battlegroup Frontlines.

Now we have a very recent addition to the mod courtesy of the IDF:FFI mod. The BTR-40 APC was the first true soviet APC and it was first used in the Korean War starting in 1950. It has 3 versions with a 4th Anti-Arcraft version planed. It uses the SGM LMG or the DSHK HMG.

Additionally we have some supply trucks which can deploy supply crates on the Battlefield for squads to use when running low.

M35 "Deuce and a Half" comes from the Eve Of Destruction mod.

The ZIS-5 comes to us from the Battlegroup Frontlines mod.

Last but not least we wanted to show off our Il-10 ground attack plane the North Koreans and Chinese forces will be using. This one also comes to us thanks to Battlegroup Frontlines. Note that this is only a placeholder Il-2M until we can properly edit the model.

As always, we are always looking for more modding talent to help us out. So please, if you know of any aspiring modders that could lend a hand please contact Anthony817

That's all for now til next time.

Thanks for the news update!

And by the way, is the Ilyushin Il-2M of Battlegroup Frontlines mod a placeholer for Il-10? The North Koreans (as well as PRoC) AFAIK received only the latter like on this picture:

Yes, if you could please go to the page where I uploaded the picture of the IL-2 you can see I stated it was a placeholder until we can get an IL-10.

We lack a 3d modeler now and for balance reasons they needed a plane right now. As it stands USA has 3 planes and the Communist only had the MiG-15.

We already research everything thoroughly so trust me we already planned the IL-2 as a placeholder for an IL-10.

I was very sleepy when I post it (timezone difference), and I'm done checking the gallery now. Thanks for the heads up! :)

Hey man no worries. Initially I didn't name the plane on this news update so it was actually a good question you were asking. So I amended it and added the info to the news update to avoid confusing anybody else. :)

Also, one of the FH2 devs is kind of an advisor for us helping us with questions we have about the game. For instance our planes now have weight to them when flying, as he showed me how to add gravity to them. So our propeller and jet aircraft all feel really awesome to fly. Somewhat similar to FH2 plane handling in many ways. All of them even zoom in with the gunner sights. So we hope to make dogfighting/ground strafing really amazing. Napalm also plays a huge role in the mod. I once read there was more napalm used in Korea than in Vietnam. Not sure how true that is but it plays a very large role with the US planes.

Oh it is no problem my friend, I can always highlight foreign languages and translate easily in firefox. :)

Well about the ships, there was a huge beach assault almost as large as what was done in Normandy in WW2. Operation Chromite was General MacArthur's huge gamble to retake Seoul and push inland to cut the rest of the North Koreans off. 75,000 UN forces took part in the operation, so it was every bit as large as Normandy in many respects if only a little smaller.

Lots of amphibious landing craft were used, so that is why we added the LVT-4, LVT-5 and the classic Higgins LVCP boat.

The Korean War was a mix of large scale WW2 type combat with Jets and Helicopters, but it also felt a lot like WW1 as the war became a stalemate and there was a lot of trench warfare.

There wasn't much large scale naval battles per se, but water craft played a huge role in the war.

Do what now? I do not understand.

I think I understand now. The LVCP and LVT-4 have issues with AI leaving as they have no way to know how to lower the landing doors. If so this is correct. Nothing I can do about that I am afraid.

Yeah, unfortunately AI doesn't know how to lower landing vehicles doors. Who knows maybe it can lower when it makes contact with land with an auto script or something?

How is the artillery going to work? Will it be like a tiny shell icon on the map, idf style? Or how about more clunky like FH2? Or are you gonna make it a pain in the arse(for me anyway) like PR?

Are you referring to the Katyusha? Well it is just a weapon that operates in 3rd person, and within line of sight. You can shoot out of your line and get lucky, but there are no cues on the minimap like in BF3/4 is that is what you mean. Special forced kit gets binoculars though, so they could help you zero in shots by verbal communications.

Funny that you bring that up though. I was just about to take some pictures of our AT guns IDF mod donated to us. We also do use a TRUE artillery weapon for the USA, the 105MM Howitzer M2A1. That weapon uses a unique projectile view camera. It has a learning curve though, and you can shoot far out of your line of sight from inside your base.

Make sure to follow the mod to stay up to date with all my updates. We are busting our ***** trying to get the mod finished by Christmas, so we are fixing and tweaking and adding things all the time.

That button should be the link to follow the mod, nut if you already follow it will make you unfollow, so beware.
