after discovering some additional (unreleased) vehicles I thought I'll make a quick post with a few updates. Let me hear in the comments what you think and let's hope for cool new stuff in the next patch!
Btw: Fourth time now I am trying to get the post to this subreddit. Those auto bans on headline words like "M1 Garand" are really annoying…and I've triggered it with the word "Pacific".
Douglas SBD Dauntless
"The Douglas SBD Dauntless is a World War II American naval scout plane and dive bomber that was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft from 1940 through 1944. The SBD is best remembered as the bomber that delivered the fatal blows to the Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway in June 1942. The type earned its nickname "Slow But Deadly" (from its SBD initials) during this period." (Wikipedia)
"The BMW R12 is a pre-World War II motorcycle that was produced by the German company BMW. The motorbike was first presented and developed in 1935. A total of 36,000 motorcycles were built by 1942." (Wikipedia)
Note: Features a seat (pillion) behind the main seat for a second person and (not 100% sure) a sidecar.
"The Welbike was a British single-seat motorcycle produced during World War II for use by Special Operations Executive (SOE). It has the distinction of being the smallest motorcycle ever used by the British Armed Forces. Between 1942 and 1943, 3,641 units (plus a prototype and some pilot models) were built and some were used at Arnhem during Operation Market Garden." (Wikipedia)
Note: I can't say when they've added both motorcycles but it's been at least more than three months now.
I got quite a few private messages regarding this tank and further info but right now there are only three variants from the singleplayer campaign present in the files: standard M4A3, Calliope and Firefly.
Additional notes about previously data mined vehicles:
- Spitfire received Pacific Dog Fighting game logic so expect those (or variants) coming to the Pacific theatre
- LVT features a driver, top gunner & right gunner positions
- Type 2 Ka-Mi features driver & top gunner positions
Note: Not yet in the game files as a stand-alone weapon but the available Thompson M1928A1 is already using some parts specifically named "M1A1" like the "Patches" ironsight for example. This of course doesn't 100% confirm that the M1A1 is coming but it is also not the weakest evidence for an inclusion in the future.
u/colers100 found this short-barreled variant of the Madsen MG including a new skin called "Abused" (which features some wire around the barrel and stock). I take the liberty to quote his post: "Its rate of fire has been decreased to 514 rounds per minute, its magazine capacity to 20 rounds <...> and it has gotten a new bullet that has a 22-20 damage model, making it the only LMG that doesn't drop to 6 shots to kill."
Note: I speculated on
Twitter about this one as a reward for Tides of War week 11 because it was added to multiplayer map indices with the Tromboncino, Boys AT and other weekly rewards in the last patch. While it doesn't seem to appear in this ToW chapter I still like to believe that a weapon set up to be potential equipment on all maps isn't too far away…sorry for the confusion.
5v5 Competitive Mode
The Panzerbüchse 39 is (in contrast to the recently released Boys AT) not classified as an Anti-Materiel rifle. At least in 5v5 it is a gadget (like the PIAT for example) that can be called in as supply drops via squad reinforcements. Same goes for the M1A1 Bazooka.
Other squad reinforcements are:
- Recon Plane
- Spawn Beacon
- Vehicles (Valentine & Staghound, Panzer IV & Panzer 38t)
Doctrines are separated into two "types" (offensive and defensive). Right now both Allies factions (SAS Raiders & Army Rangers) are "offensive" and the Axis (Volksgrenadiers & Decima Mas) have a "defensive" role. At the moment the actual meaning of this is unclear to me.
A feature called "War Photographer" includes an old camera that can be found in singleplayer and Combined Arms missions which allows you to take war photos and share them with your friends.
- Camera has a selfie mode and options like Zoom, Focus, Filters, Aperture
- You can manage your photos in your main menu profile
- There are sharing options for PS4 and Xbox or you can access them in a screenshot subfolder (called warphotos) on PC
"Mark all as seen"
The headline sounds like a (assumption) useful button for the Company and/or Armory…no further info.
Thanks for your support and have a nice day!
