I just heard from a bastard of a little birdy that a Battlefield 1942 expansion pack is due out next month. Called The Road to Rome, the expansion includes Italian and French soldiers and weapons to go along with a handful of new vehicles and even stationary anti-tank guns. Mmmmm anti-tank guns.

the Free French are in the expantion set apparently, esp in the monte cassino scenarii

If they want to be accurate, a lot of the free french will be arab and blacks : it was 'l'armée coloniale' we got back from liberated Magreb after the success of the Torch operation. The assault was especially gruesome.

well i seriously doubt that will happen, maroule, despite your good intentions

just as we will not be able to play as any of the canadians, indians, aussies, new zealanders, maoris, gurkhas or any other peoples of the commonwealth who formed part of the allied forces

perhaps some bright spark will make some new skins as a mod

i've already seen some brilliantly reskinned tiger tanks, with unit emblems, different camo etc.

I made this excellent face for Operation Flashpoint. Too bad I lost the file, I only got a screenshot

Very cool.

I tried that once with NHL 200x. I ended up looking like Shrek in a hockey jersey.

I tried it as well once. I looked like a hockey player after 79 consecutive fights.

The problem is I had a broken nose, so it looks weird sometimes
