Infantry! Infantry everywhere! After showing you the new M16 MGMC, the GAZ-AAA and the SdKfz 7/1, there are also a handful of other tweaks incoming for the infantry! In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) a number of tweaks and adjustments will enhance infantry gameplay.
WEAPON AND GUNPLAY TWEAKS
We have been digging through the stats for a while, listened (and read) a lot of feedback & talked to a number of players, and we have decided on a few tweaks to help improve the feel of the gunplay in the game. Most notably we are adjusting a number of values around the semi-auto rifles (the Gewehr 43, M1 Garand & Tokarev SVT-40) to make them more valuable as weapons for both new players and veterans.
Straight from the factories comes this symbol of Soviet ingenuity! By mounting an Anti-Aircraft gun on a truck chassis we have added mobility to the AA!
In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) comes the GAZ-AAA M-4 Maxim mobile AA truck.
The Gorkiy Auto Zavod-AAA Anti-Aircraft truck is a Soviet tri-axial truck mounted with a quad Maxim M-4 Anti-Aircraft gun. Although the M-4 is designed for use against low-flying aircraft it is also an excellent infantry support vehicle taking out enemy cars and unarmored (or light armored) vehicles.
How do I get my hands on this fantastic machine?
In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) we have improved the terrain graphics and added a handful of tweaks to the town map.
We have updated and improved the way terrain is generated and drawn on screen, and the Town map is the first to receive the update. You can see that grass and bushes now look a lot better and the terrain has a more fluid and less jagged feel. In addition the grass-land and fields are a bit more hilly, which helps infantry move by providing a bit more cover.
Here you can see how nice these improvements look, and how nice the uniforms now blend in to the terrain better. This is the capture point E2 –
A new update for a new year! having gone through the alphabet from A to Z naming updates after generals, for the next updates we’ll look at heroes of WW2, and instead of just sitting around here in HQ picking someone, we decided that YOU the players, the HEROES of the game should have a word.
So over Christmas we have had a thread running in our forum for suggestions and a name that kept popping up was >US S/Sgt. LUCIAN ADAMS.
He was suggested by a number of players and seconded by even more. The players that suggested Adams was Chamberpot_pie45, Pryvate_Jackson, DisasterMan25 & Kilowolf – so thank you for that and check your forum PM.
So the next update will be named
ADAMS – Ground Fire
Do you want to know WHY S/Sgt. Lucian Adams was awarded the Medal of Honor?

In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) a brand new Soviet revolver will make its presence known! The Soviet Nagant M1895 Revolver!
The Nagant M1895 revolver is a 7 round revolver with the option to upgrade the ammunition to the large and powerful Leonov Medved round. This makes the M1895 a distinct revolver with a high damage output potential and impressive stopping power. It is the handcannon the Soviet soldier will love and trust when they are forced to abandon their primary weapon.
