Hello und welcome to a new Battlegroup - Frontlines Update. Today we unfortunately cannot give you new information about a possible release date of the patch, but we still have some information and pictures that will satisfy you.

First of all we would like to welcome a new developer, whose name is Gerhart. He will support our PR section with his talent and take screenshots and videos for you.

Now we want to present some information and pictures about our patch. It is already known that we will add a few maps and change CasinoGame gameplay only and we have already shown off the map "Fall 1943". Today we concentrate on our second map for the patch. It was created by Tomcraft and is a conversion of the BG42-Map "Dnjepr River", who huskerpat was responsible for. It was already released under the same name for BGF, but we decided to redo the map once again due to performance issues. This resulted in "Operation Edelweiss". Every world war II freak now knows what this map is about. It plays in the Caucasus or respectively close to the Caucasus. The so called "Edelweiss"-troops fought there from july 1942 on to try to get control of the important oil fields near the town of Baku. Partially this operation succeeded, but after the German loss in Stalingrad they had to leave the region. Now let us come to the pictures, of which the most were taken by Gerhart.


As you can see on the screenshots there are soldiers and tanks, who are bots. All singleplayer fans should be happy now, but there is more great Informationen for you. Our bot coder pacman28 did not only spent bots to this map. No, he added bot support to more than 3/4 of our maps, of which one of them is our other new map "Fall 1943". That means that you can enjoy almost everything of BGF in our new release in singleplayer.

That`s it for today, we hope to see you again.

Hello and welcome back for our today´s Battlegroup Frontlines update.

Today we like to show you something you cannot drive or shoot with, but what is very important for the atmosphere on a map.

In the destroyed city of Stalingrad it is important to get cover and so you can use the old tram for cover or as perfect hideout for snipers. The tram was modeled and textured by our all- rounder Godfather.




We hope you like our work. In our Dev- Diary you can have a first look at the tram ingame in the red- square ("Fallen- Fighter square") map for Stalingrad.

Furthermore we like to show you our PanzerIII M, modeled by Koricus and textured by Postman778. The PanzerIII M provides better protection against hollow charges with the turret and hull skirts and additional armor at the gun base and hull front for the driver and radio operator.




Hope to see you back again for the next Battlegroup- Frontlines Update.

Hello and welcome to today`s BGF update.

This time we want to show you the tank hunter Ferdinand SdKfz 184. The Ferdinand was build in the factory halls of Koricus and was ordered for camouflage paintings to the paint shop of Postman778. The model was applied with the camouflages of the 654th and 653rd tank hunter units "Kursk" from the year 1943.

The Ferdinand is based on the Tiger (P) which was inferior to the Henschel tiger. The already produced 90 chassis were converted into the tank hunter Ferdinand, who became the first tank with the legendary 8.8 cm-PaK 43 / 2 L/71 which was mounted in fixed superstructure.

The 90 tanks hunters were send to Kursk and Orel, and destroyed together 500 enemy tanks. However, the Ferdinand suffers from the hasty completion and the non eliminated teething troubles which many tanks had fallen victim to and often had to be blown up by the crew.

In addition, the Ferdinand had no close combat weapon which made him an easy victim for Russian infantry, if he was not backed up by own infantry support.

Only 48 vehicles survived the operation citadel and were send back to Germany where they were also equipped with a close combat weapon, a MG 34 in front of the radio operator’s seat, and later, under the name Tank Destroyer Elephant, send to the Italian front.

Here are the pictures:
