First of all, before we get started, I personally would like to apologise for the huge delay in the release of information, but I do intend to keep my promise that more and more updates will stream over the next few months during the holiday season.
Let us begin the coming weeks with a big update focused solely on the US Marine Corps. First up, we have your average Marine squad. These men will be able to grab a Trenchgun or a Flamethrower if your willing to pay for it. Otherwise they'll just keep their designated rifles (M1 Carbines + M1 Garands).
Next up we have the guys that are gonna build the Marines their beds. The Construction Battalion, a.k.a SeaBees. These battle hardened soldiers will have their M1 Carbines ready and are willing to fight, but just make sure you don't manage to run them into any Japs on their own.
So how about the Support Teams? Wont the Marines get any additional support? YES! In fact here is a number of those teams. The Mortar Team, the Bazooka Team and the Machine Gun Team.
Oh and Last but certainly not least, the Sniper Team.
And one final announcement we would like to make - Pacific Thunder will be fully compatible with the original Company of Heroes factions, meaning you can have the Marines fighting the Wehrmacht and any other combination you try to think of.
So thats it for todays update, stay tuned for more in the coming weeks where there will be plenty more shown from both sides of the Theatre
