Bonjour everybody. :)

I'm really proud to show you our progress ! My aim for the French Forces faction was to make realistic soldiers, and I think we have reached it.

PS :


Just, if the French soldiers wear a blue helmet it's because they are from UNIFIL. Which is mandated by the UN to hold the Lebanese frontier.

Awesome, good to see the kit geos looking unique and not like the US Army ones.

Jungle Fire water could be a little less clear, colour is a bit weird as well even though its reflecting the sky.

And is the Hecate deployed or not? Can't tell if the bipod is folded out or not, they seem a little close together but it could be the angle of the shot.

Be careful, this is a FrF2 (7,62), not a PGM Hecate II (12,7). 3p animations may look odd, they are still WIP. :)

Desert camo isn't standard even for "desert" operation theaters in the French Army. ;)

After the French forces have been only sent for peacekeeping. Soldiers have kept their woodland uniform to stay easily recognizable.

Afghanistan is became a real war for France only since 2008. And I think soldiers will receive a new desert uniform with all the new FELIN equipments.

because at the end of the day they'll retreat to france which is a temperate zone

IDF, as said in Operation Marlin map thread ;)

And please, stop with the French Army jokes...it is funny at some point, but you could be at least more imaginative. The intelligence level is pretty low (except Animal), I'm sure you can do better ;)

I'm sure a lot of countries would be jealous of our military background that cannot be summed up to our defeat during WWII.

Guys, the french have had PLENTY of military victories. Like with Napoleon, until he faced the Russians.

thats pretty much it though. Just Napoleon, who I have the utmost respect for.

There's a reason that France was the most powerful and influental country on the European continent. All the way from the Medieval Age up to 1812... If they really are and were the cowards the French-bashers try to make of them they would not have survived in the Europe of those days.

Am I right in remembering that when the French were issued blue camo in ww1, that was the justification?

Seriously, where does this reputation comes from? WWII? didn't the brits retreated like us in 1940? didn't we retreated partly because the US refused to help us, to enter in the war?
Algeria? It seems that it was a political defeat and not a military one.
Indochina? Didn't the US have been defeated there too?
I'm fed up of all these ignorant kids saying we're only good at retreating (not talking about PR players but in general). And if it is because of Irak and our refusal of joining the coalition, it's pretty much clear now that this war was useless and not justified.
I am not too strong on the modern french history, I m just wondering why we have to endure these "jokes".
Now I am very respectful to every soldier, even from countries with absolutly no military history, I think every man who serve his country and take the eventuality to risk his life for it deserve respect.
please explain to me the reason of these jokes, thank you! :)

we dutch were overrun in 5 days because our mounted divisions preferred to ride bikes and our military doctrine was based on giving the germans wet feet, I never hear any jokes about that:p

I'm going with WW2 followed by Vietnam mate. If anyone studies a little bit of history, they know that the French either put up a huge fight, or won most wars up until the 19th Century (ignoring the Franco-Prussian War)

Yep, it comes from WWII. Because France, being one of the most influential countries at that time lost in...2 months, and that is with the help of brits. I won't even get into such details as french army equipment, which was mostly top of the line and sometimes even superior to German (them tanks). Not to mention the french promises of attacking Germany first to help out their great Polish ally, but no one ever cares about pawland so no surprise here.

The most important thing in history, it's what we are living now. We (Europeans and aslo Western countries) live in peace together and it's the most important thing actually.

Hey, you were quite happy the French won the American revolutionary war ;-) The white flag, you mean this one like at the battle of Yorktown? Obviously it's not a flag of surrender but rather victory ;-)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5a/Yorktown80.JPG

We were your first ally and we will always be, like you are ours.

And like Sgt_Doctor says, the most important thing today is we, Europeans, are leaving together in peace. But that doesn't stop us to make jokes about our countries LOL I guess we miss the time when we were fighting each others xD

Very nice work, glad to see the French infantry! Can't wait for more. Good luck guys, cheers.

IIRC the Hecate (sniper rifle) is a .50 cal sniper and they are not allowed in PR.

@Midnight don't take it seriously, it is just banter.

I dont, but I wanted to understand. It becomes really annoying these times with every FF updates comes these same stupid jokes. I maybe smiled for the 20 first times, now it's just annoying.

One man in two is a woman?

You're French, so you know that in french Homme with a capital H represent both men and women, human beings in general.

Yeah these jokes have been quite popular since 2003, difference is that back then people actually meant it for some reasons. Anglo-saxon disinformation and stereotypes at work I guess. Now I feel these as little jokes, annoying and repetitive but I myself don't only have tender words toward our English and American allies, so.. :p



Anyway this is really good, France vs IDF is going to be nice, politics aside, I like the equipment both sides.. Hope you won't be accused of being anti-semite as it is the trend here in France whenever you say anything against Israel. ;)


Great stuff, love you guys. :goodvibes

I dont, but I wanted to understand. It becomes really annoying these times with every FF updates comes these same stupid jokes. I maybe smiled for the 20 first times, now it's just annoying.

Was not even funny the first time to be honest. Such lack of wit/understanding of history.

Sgt_Doctor;1527421']Nope. SL is going to use an Eotech and the rifleman specialist a red dot.

I thought standard aimpoint was more common among infantry regiments. When will 'l'Armee de Terre' stop being so old-schooley ? ;)

IIRC the Hecate (sniper rifle) is a .50 cal sniper and they are not allowed in PR.


What? Why?

Aren't the Norwegians getting an M85?

dtacs
2011-01-10, 12:12
I think they are because there is no other alternative 7.62 rifle, there will most likely be a workaround to avoid the use of a .50 cal, and a semi-auto one at that.

I heard that joke from my physics teacher when back in Brussels. No surprise that you don't get it, it's a typical french joke based on a game of words. Props to whoever put it there, made me chuckle.

I will also use this post to make a quick suggestion: each faction has something characteristic in their command vehicle , perhaps the French can have a nice bottle of Bordeaux wine?

Why we have MGs and marksman rifles with 2 shooting positions, deployed/normal mode, but sniper rifles didnt get it (while staffed by bipod)?

Caught this offtop idea when saw 1st pic with FRA sniper.

Midnight_o9

The sniper rifle is always in deployed mode. There is no need of a "normal" mode for it, as you wont shoot with it while moving. you have your pistol for this.

But sorry, we don't eat any "Putarain" in France. (But, Boursin or Tartare.)

Also "Putarain", it's an horrible name in French. A mix with "Putain" and "Purin". (Fuck and manure.) :lol:

I just pulled the video from the interwebs, don't shoot the messenger!

And I must admit tartare is quite enjoyable on a baguette, but i have the tendency to make it into this crazy cramped sandwich with salad, eggs and what not. But I guess that's the Yorkshire lad in me playing up again.

Like all conventional factions in PR, everyone is technically equal. Your question can only be answered with how a team utilizes their resources.

To answer your second question: You must have just joined PR because in my experience Canada is a great faction and wins the majority of the games I've played in.

The French specialist classes shouldn't come with a grappling hook. Instead of the grappling hook, instead there should be a parkour (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYpsFnhMmcY) option. The French Forces can just jump, flip, and climb over obstacles on foot. :razz:

Hauteclocque;1527638']IDF, as said in Operation Marlin map thread ;)

And please, stop with the French Army jokes...it is funny at some point, but you could be at least more imaginative. The intelligence level is pretty low (except Animal), I'm sure you can do better ;)

I'm sure a lot of countries would be jealous of our military background that cannot be summed up to our defeat during WWII.

Most of "French cowards" is from their military history 1870-1962. Also WWI was saved because the Germans met the Brits. Just for the record :P. Also, want creative jokes?

The French flag has a convenient perk: one can cut off the blue and red to make it he 'Common use' variant. 8)

The reason France can win at wargames is because there's no "cowardice" modifier.

Nevertheless, nice work and i'd love to pop 'em with the Frenchies, looking forward to 0.96 :D
