I imported the Type 100 submachine gun model from Medal of Honor Pacific Assault and i made it usable in H&D Deluxe.

There are available now: new inventory icon and text description, in-game model, side view and iron sights view models plus weapon shooting sound taken directly from MoHPA.

See pictures below.

The picture below shows the new iron sights view aim model for the Type 100 submachine gun, that i mentioned in my previous post.

Unpack the content of Type100SMG.rar archive into your root H&D Deluxe directory. I also included the updated data.dta archive.

I plan to equip some enemies from my addons with it. For now you could equip the Type 100 submachine gun in-game using the fullhands cheat.

Enjoy! :grin:

Japanese weapons in Europe?
Are you turning this game into CoD: Vanguard? 😉

Anyway, I am WAY BEHIND on these downloads.
When will version 2.3 be released?

I wrote in my previous posts that i plan to update some of my addons with those Japanese weapons imported from MOHPA.

The H&D Deluxe Ultimate Mod 2.3 version is already released. Check ModDB website: https://www.moddb.com/mods/hd-deluxe-ul ... imate-mod1

EDIT: A while ago i updated one of my addons on ModDB. I equipped some Japanese soldiers with the weapons that i mentioned among other changes listed in the addon description on ModDB. It is The island hopping mission addon: https://www.moddb.com/mods/hd-deluxe-ul ... ion-addon1

After further research on the Internet i made changes to the following weapons from my mod:

-> Bazooka weight increased to 8,2 kg, ammo weight increased to 1,6 kg, effective range set to about 100 meters;

-> PIAT effective range set to about 100 meters;

-> Panzerfaust weight descreased to 7kg, effective range set to about 100 meters. It will be no longer available to equip in the Poland campaign (you could still destroy enemy planes using i.e. machine-gun mounted on the bmw motorcycle, time-bombs, etc);

-> Panzerschreck ammo weight decreased to 2,7 kg, effective range set to about 150 meters;

-> added informations about max effective range of Bazooka, Panzerfaust, PIAT and Panzerschreck into the in-game inventory selection screen;

-> updated missions in which enemy soldiers are using Panzerfaust and Panzerschreck, so the enemy AI will open fire from range not exceeding those weapons max effective range written in the in-game inventory selection screen;

-> changed the Germany 5 mission "chasing" Panzer IV tank final drive destination. The tank will now guard the main road passing through the military camp. See picture below.

Unpack the anti-tank weapons update.rar archive into your root H&D Deluxe directory. Replace files when asked.

Enjoy! :grin:

EDIT: Today i made some new changes in the Germany 5 mission:

- added few missing terrain collisions;

- fixed various minor bugs.

Thanks to NilsZ work there is possible now to fire rocket launchers also in prone position, which was impossible before due to the game engine limitations. So, i enabled this option for my custom PIAT plus i updated its iron sights aim model. See pictures below.

It was possible to fire PIAT in prone position in reality, because it had no backblast like i.e. Bazooka, so the operator was safe. This will be a unique feature of the PIAT among other anti-tank weapons in the mod. The player will be able to use it, while being less exposed to enemy fire and in a more concealed position when engaging armored targets.

Unpack the PIAT update.rar archive into your root H&D Deluxe directory. Replace files when asked.

Enjoy! :grin:

Today i made some changes related to the M1 Bazooka:

-> now the King Tiger tank is immune to M1 Bazooka fire. I made that change based on the King Tiger armor thickness and layout and the fact that sloped armor further improved the protection. Moreover, the M1 Bazooka was the initial, earliest Bazooka variant with lower armor penetration capability than other anti-tank weapons introduced later in the war. You will need now to use i.e. PIAT or Panzerschreck to destroy King Tiger in the game.

I also updated the Ardenes campaign:

-> added a King Tiger tank to the Ardenes 1 mission that guards the main road near the mission extraction point;

-> fixed various bugs found in the Ardenes campaign.

Unpack the Ardenes update.rar archive into your root H&D Deluxe directory. Replace files when asked.

Enjoy! :grin:

Hmm, isn't the PIAT older and less effective?
After all, it replies on a coiled spring instead of a rocket.

Also, what about hitting the King Tiger from the rear?

The PIAT was introduced in mid 1943 (later than M1 Bazooka).

The coiled spring is not what propelles the warhead (shaped charge), it is a common misconception. In addition PIAT shaped charge diameter was bigger than M1 Bazooka rocket diameter, so it is more effective.

King Tiger rear armor was about 80mm thick and it was angled. The newer M9 Bazooka variant introduced later in the war could probably defeat it, but i doubt that the earliest M1 variant could handle that.

Speaking of PIAT I just watched a very interesting video on Youtube regarding its history and usage. :cool:

I highly recommend to check it too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Gl8g9rRN3Y

Made by the people from the famous tank museum in Bovington, England. This video is a part of the "Anti-tank chats" playlist.

P. S. I also watched many videos from their "Tank chats" series. Lots of well researched informations about WW2 and modern era tanks and other military vehicles. Really impressive channel.
