Half-track with quad mounted .50 cal machineguns. Adams update brings US mobile AA gun!

In the coming Adams update (after the American hero Lucian Adams) comes the M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage mobile AA gun. The vehicle was known as the “Kraut-mower”, “Meat-Chopper”, the devil has many names. The vehicle was beloved by the troops and rightfully so. It provided the infantry with mobile fire support from its four .50 caliber M2 “Ma Deuce” heavy machine guns, and could be used as both in an anti aircraft or anti materiel role. This new mobile AA gun is the US counter-part to the previously revealed Soviet GAZ-AAA, and German SdKfz 7/1


Despite its awesome firepower, the vehicle is still vulnerable. Remember to support this valuable battlefield unit.

Adams update brings new terrain and tweaks to the town map

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.

Terrain update

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 –
