its a nice collection of knives and machete, but in most of west Africa the most common blade you see is called a "panga" i ts a rather large bladed weapon use for cutting anything you can think of.

panga in reference to full grown male.

Thanks for the feedback! I think also our machetes are too short.

Indeed, Panga, or more often called "Coupe-coupe" (Cut-cut) in French African areas, is one of the most common blade we can find.

Here in Kenya, a machete (even if the newspaper call it a panga).

Still in Kenya, a panga (also called coupe-coupe).

Between the Bolo, the Machete and the Panga, there isn't an huge difference for gameplay. But the length of their blades could be deadly for ennemy soldiers ^^

Tonnie;1114336']anglomanii why do you know everything in life?

because my friend i have lived,
you've seen my face. you know i have had to have seen some messed up stuff, to look like that.
i cant find any current pics but in Rwanda and Congo the locals have a nasty variant of the panga that looks like a question mark. called the umuhoro
http://i596.photobucket.com/albums/tt50/anglomanii/ARF/toolsumuhoro.jpg

p.s. i make friends not enemies, so if we need African voices for this at a future date that shouldn't be a problem. especially as tonnie now has a sound man in his back pocket!!

there are some really good references for this in a movie called "tears of the sun". it was actually very well researched even if it was a little lame and hands on hearts.

this is one of the less offensive vids i was able to find
YouTube - Kabila's Eastern Alies - DRC (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5Enu94-bao&feature=related)

That could be more than useful!!! Ask them if they can please? We need French or at least English African voices.

In the video, they start to speak in French at 6:12. It's this kind of voices we need!

bottom one on the first post is closest to what I think of when someone says Machete :D

I vote for the bottom one as well. maybe a little more red color on it.

Hey man. Thanks for contributing! Appreciate it.

I like the bottom one too.

I like the thrid from top but the bottom looks like a typical machete.

What are you guys saying? The third from the top is the best pick. I mean, just look at how badass that mofo looks! If you whip out that two-cent machete at the bottom and say "I'm going to cut you," I mean, you're just going to look like some poor angry African guy. If you pull out the knife third from the top and you say "I'm going to cut you," everybody will know that you mean serious business.

The second and fourth ones are the only ones you can call machetes.. I like the kukri model.

oh dear, your kidding right?
if person #1 has a Panga and person #2 has that little pistol-grip blade i think your talking about, i think dont think person#2 is walking away from this argument.

sure "if you pull out the knife third from the top and you say "I'm going to cut you," everybody will know that you mean serious business." but the guy with the panga says "I'm going to cut you," you call that poor angry African guy "SIR" all you can do from that point is hope he doesn't say you need short sleeves.

how about i do a couple of video's with a machete for reference. i'll have at least one of those in the shed somewhere.

Ye we'd have to model Milla Jovovich too to use the kukri knife. :p

Nah the most authentic one is the bottom one.

2009-08-18, 11:06
i agree, it seams to be that type is common across the board.
luckily these have fallen out of fashion

Maybe different kits for the ARF can have different knives/machetes? I wouldn't know why a group like ARF would have a bunch of the same exact knives/macetes around anyway?

MAINERROR
2009-08-24, 20:02
Nah the machete will be fine. If you add too many knife/machete versions you just boost up the file sizes. The profit is not high enough tbh. ;)

IMO, we need to model a bigger machete as the one made was too short.

Use them all so we can have a more "militia" feel to the faction. of course the Higher the rank the nicer the blade.

162eRI
2009-08-25, 23:20
For a militia or insurgent faction, yes! But for a conventional faction, no, we need to use a regular machete.

Also, like said [R-DEV]MAINERROR, use too much machete will be pretty bad for the file sizes!!!
