German Blitz on the move with Everhart – Update!

After we showed you the Soviet GAZ-AAA Cargo and the American CCKW Truck, it is time to present you with the German Blitz truck!

The Blitz truck fits 9 soldiers, two supply crates and a driver – enough space for three German standard Infantry Squads on the move to the frontline!
Keep a Recon Auxiliary Seat to scout and warn you about or eliminate all the threats you could meet on the road.

It unlocks at Chauffeur Ribbon Rank 2 and is available for Infantry soldiers. Just like the other two trucks it works as a mobile deploy vehicle, BUT while cheaper to buy and faster to unlock than the halftracks, it is not armored so it requires a bit of skill to place it where it is both useful for teammates, but also a bit protected from enemy fire!

Historical Facts

The name Blitz, which translates to lightning was found in a prize competition and was first used for this truck in 1930.
During the war about 130,000 2.5 ton Blitz Trucks were built until 1944 in Brandenburg. On August 6th 1944 the Brandenburger factory was destroyed in an RAF Air Raid, after which the constructed was moved to the Mannheimer rival plant by order of Minister of Armaments Albert Speer.
The construction of different Blitz models continued until 1975.

Everhart – Update rolls in Trucks for the US Faction!

The Everhart update introduces the CCKW Truck for the US Faction. Take all your friends on a road trip to the battlegrounds!

Just as the Gaz-AAA, the CCKW can fit nine soldiers, two supply crates and a driver.
As the enemy will expect a full load of soldiers, why not use it as a bluff? When their attention is fully on the truck, run your offensive in this moment of confusion!

The CCKW is unlocked on Chauffeur Ribbon Rank 2 and can be used by Infantry soldiers.

Historical Facts

The truck is lovingly called Jimmy or Deuce and a half within the US Army.
In 1940 the US Army needed a 2 1/2 ton truck with a big cargo space. So the 1939 ACKWX, which was built for the French Army, was converted into the CCKW.
The name CCKW is part of a specfic nomenclatur:

  • C – designed in 1941
  • C – conventional cab
  • K – all wheel drive
  • W – dual rear axis

Everything one needs to know about a truck.

Soviet Infantry Truck incoming with Everhart – Knights of the Road Update

In the upcoming Everhart update (named after the American soldier Forrest Eugene Everhart) we are introducing a new Infantry vehicles. The GAZ AAA Cargo Truck! This vehicle takes you and all your comrades right to the action.

This truck will fit a driver and nine extra soldiers, which are covered by tarp. A Trojan horse on wheels, which will leave your enemies wondering how many forces they have to expect.
However, beware of enemy fire, the truck is not armored like other Infantry vehicles.

The GAZ AAA Cargo unlocks at Chauffeur Ribbon Rank 2, can equip two supply crates and is available for Infantry Soldiers.

Historical Facts

The GAZ-AAA Cargo Truck is the three axle version of the GAZ-AA, which corresponds to the Ford Model AA. The Soviet Union signed an agreement with the Ford Motor Company in 1929 to purchase automobiles and parts from Ford, while Ford agreed to give technical assistance. With the experience the engineers gathered from Ford’s help and vehicles they later built their own models, which were only loosely based on Ford’s former models.

In the coming update named Bauer, we’re adding a brand-new terrain vehicle to the game. And this one is not German, but American — the wonderful M29 Weasel!

With the ability to attach two different supply crates and improved off-road capabilities, the M29 Weasel offers a completely different experience when transporting the player into battle.
