Iron Europe is a World War I mod for the Mount&Blade; Warband Napoleonic Wars DLC. Our goal is to immerse players in the brutal battles of WWI. Players will have the opportunity to fight it out, for France or for Germany, in the trenches and in no man's land. Play as an expendable rifleman grunt, a brave officer leading from the front, an artillerymen supporting comrades from afar, or an elite assault trooper, spearheading attacks. Use bolt-action rifles, machine guns, and pistols to take down enemies from a distance or close in and engage in brutal hand to hand combat with knives, clubs, and the trusty bayonet. A host of features, including whistles, bleeding, bandaging, and grenades have been added to bring the WWI experience to life. To get the latest version of the mod, first install 1.0 and then the 1.21 patch.

Report RSS Revamped French Uniforms

This update shows a couple of our revamped French uniforms. The past few months have been spent focusing on Germany but France definitely needs some touching up. To reflect the uniqueness of each class, there are several different gear variations. Here are just a few of them.

This update shows a couple of our revamped French uniforms. The past few months have been spent focusing on Germany but France definitely needs some touching up. To reflect the uniqueness of each class, there are several different gear variations. Here are just a few of them.

Renders
All uniform models and textures by Rigadoon except for the boots and Chauchat pouches, by Betaknight.

This first image shows a M15 Poiret coat with full marching gear. Soldiers would often carry all of their equipment on assaults, so that they would be well supplied when holding enemy trenches.

French Full Marching Gear

Here is the uniform and equipment of a Chachaut armed automatic riflemen. The M14 type 4 Poiret was still largely in use during the mod's time period despite the M15 being introduced. Leather pouches allow the carrying of two Chauchat magazines. More magazines would be carried by an accompanying ammunition bearer.

French Chauchat Gunner Gear

Finally, we have an assault roll, which allowed soldiers to be fairly mobile while retaining the most important equipment. The greatcoat is a M14 type 1 modified into a type 4 by adding lower pockets. The type of blue fabric used varied widely throughout the war making it so that these modified uniforms often looked mismatched.

French Assault Roll

Little bonus, here's a morphine ampoule, available to the medical corps. Modeled and textured by KArantukki.

What's Next?
Like mentioned earlier, this update includes only small amount of the French uniforms. There will be far more variations and new equipment for officers and artilleryman. Modeling focus has shifted to artillery, specifically infantry support guns and mortars. As well, the mappers will be glad to here that we plan to release the mapping module for the next update along with some other fancy stuff that DanyEle has been working on.
