Swiss Faction Confirmed!

The next major update will have a new faction, which is one of the smaller, but not unimportant nations of WWII: the Swiss faction. It is a neutral faction that cannot initiate the first attack towards any of the other factions, but if attacked by a faction it will then be able to perform attacks towards that faction for the remainder of the War, but only within the region of Switzerland.

The first and only Assault Team and soldier type available for the Swiss faction is Recon, but in coming updates we will add further Assault Teams and soldier types. The Swiss Recon soldiers will be armed with K31/43 rifles with 2.8x Scopes and a Swiss Army Knife as default weapon. The Swiss Faction will be the only Faction in which Soldiers will earn Gold instead of Credits.
In the upcoming weeks we will reveal more information about the Swiss faction…

Coming soon: M1A1 Carbine with folding stock – Young update expands the US arsenal

Rejoice US Tankers and Paratroopers. In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) comes the M1A1 carbine with folding stock.

As the weapon was designed to be a light and compact weapon, it only requires 4 equipment slots. This makes it available to US tankers and it allows for new tactical options for US paratrooper loadouts.

Paratroopers can unlock it on the Parachute Ribbon at Rank 11 as the Second paratrooper carbine.

Or it unlocks for tankers on the Armour Damage Ribbon at Rank 9 as the Second tank weapon.

The handling is quite similar to the existing M1M2 Carbine.

What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
You mean the awesome free-2-play RTS/FPS game? The game where assault teams are under your command (if you so wish)? Where you can sit patiently in an abandoned ruin and snipe incoming enemies? That game? The one where you can hurl an armor piercing piece of ‘OMG’ at enemy vehicles? Where you can fly planes, rush capture points, fire bazooka’s, silently sneak up and end a foe’s misery with a knife? Listen as the silence grows, just before the madness starts? Hmm – I don’t know…bikes?
