New Tank PANZER Ib


After a period of absence we are proud that we can return with new messages from the "front"! To a wide gamut of vehicles in FH 0.7 we add a new vehicle, the "father" of the most famous Tigers and Panthers - tank Panzerkampfwagen I.

It was the most numerous member of Panzerwaffe during the September campaign 1939. The workhorse of the German armored forces was built between 1930-1936. It was a small light tank – two-men crew were armed with two machine guns MG13, protected by armor thickness up to 13 mm , and the vehicle was powered by Krupp M305 engine with a power of 57 horsepower.

In our our mod we faithfully reconstruct the appearance and characteristics of this vehicle. We gave it a typical of German armored vehicles painted in 1939 - gray color “panzergrau” with white crosses of Panzerwaffe.

The model was made by Remo PL with a historical reverence. You can even see 3D modelled tools on hull.

The shape of the turret is specific for version B.


Tom PL was responsible for coding - placement of all wheels, turret, smokes and mg config or the animation of treads. While Shayman textured our tank.

Soon more news! And maps!

I think YOU SHOULD READ (and UNDERSTAND) the last sentence of what retyan says and not just down-voting somebody's post... -_-

And BTW, its not mine (you're wrong again). It's Battlegroup42 mod team's property. Mod's news dated back 2014.

Look, I appreciate and play this mini-mod's last release. So don't force anyone NOT to play this (bf1942 playerbase are steadily declining) for the reason of attitude problem of one of the members of mini-mod team!

As for retyan, DO a little research first. It'll make you better. ;)

We know well about BattleGrup42 works, we also wanted to establish some sort of collaboration but we got a refusal. Our mini mod is something as part of continuing work on the perfect FH 0.7, so we don't need to persuade or force anyone to this.

From what I read from PFC forum, one of GV minimod devs requested a model from BG42 (specifically Panzer I Ausf. B) but the latter turned it down for obvious reason:
Turbosquid.com

Although i'm not the right person to say this on BG42 devs' behalf, but IMHO IF they gonna give it for free, then they will violate the terms and conditions from which 3D model they purchase.
