Northern Fronts - Scandinavia in WW2

Recommended Posts

Hi all, we are pleased to bring you some more information on our upcoming release in this very important date. After the German Heer and Luftwaffe invaded Norway, on April 9 1940, many of the men and women of Norway began sabotaging Nazi assets. Savage reprisals were made against the civilian populace so it became ever more important for resistance fighters to be able to blend in with ordinary folk. One moment an ordinary civilian, going about their business in the many villages of norway and the next, a well armed soldier in the army of freedom! Northern Fronts will bring 1940s civilian clothing and ressistance variants in upcoming update. Variety of historically accurate clothing and headgear will be enriched by equipable armbands worn by resistance fighters. We cannot possibly express how excited we are to bring these awe-inspiring people to you in Arma.

Hello, I noticed that there has been a lack of updates, the latest update notes on steam workshop was from 20th of January, so when can we expect the Norwegian resistance & army to come into play?

 

Also, will Norwegian Police troops be added? And what about Swedish border guards, Swedish Armed Forces in the Area of Vinjesvingen? There were numerous swedes in the norwegian and danish resistance.

 

(PS, I would be very happy to assist you in researching historical material as I speak both Swedish and Norwegian (because they are similar languages))

We're currently working on the Norwegian update, which will still take some time to release. We usually don't have set dates as we do this in our spare time.

 

At the moment our priority is in adding the most common Norwegian assets. Resistance assets will be dynamic with weaponry so you can represent any resistance with ease. Armbands and clothing are separate.

 

We usually implement factions which are easy to do with the current assets we have. So you can expect Swedish assets come to play after the Winter War update when we add the Swedish & other Nordic volunteers (Svenska Frivilligkåren) in Finland, 1940. Those assets can be used to replicate Swedish Armed Forces. Danes can be expected as well as they share most of the weaponry with Norwegians. All Nordics be done eventually, but it's just matter of time.

I appreciate the quick response, will you make a northern Sweden map perchance? Since the Norwegian Resistance actually had cooperation with Sweden where Sweden started something known as the "Polistrupperna" (Police-troops) which was a sort of Paramilitary organization for resistance members to train in peace, it would be intresting to have a huge training map in Sweden where they could actually train, and also maybe enterable houses?

@Temppa, I really love what you've done with Svartmarka, a totally fresh take on a map we all know and love so well. :rthumb:

 

I'm not sure if you want bug reports but while i'm here...

@Temppa, your work to take a beloved but dated map and use Livonia assets to turn it into an overgrown a post-war wilderness is absolutely inspired. It looks absolutely spot on and the performance is phenomenal. Apart from a few missing pond objects and some misplaced ruins as noted, it's just a fantastic terrain, and deserves to be a standalone terrain too, like some of the others in your pack. Congratulations on another outstanding terrain, and thanks!

The summer is over. Upcoming Northern Fronts update will provide something warmer to wear for more colder conditions. In the picture you can also see new headgear and new helmet models. Majority of the Finnish headwear has been remade for this upcoming update. Pictured are the Finnish m/22-36 and m/36 greatcoats. You can also spy our new m/16 helmets, m/22 sidecap and remade m/36 field cap.

@Temppa Any chance for a alt version of old Svartmarka with the more waged  by war landscape and ruins. Both settings are amazing and interesting.

80 years ago Finland's neutrality was violated by the Soviet Union. Bombs were dropped on Helsinki and other civilian targets while over half a million Red Army soldiers marched into Finnish land. Against them stood over 300 thousand Finnish defenders, underequipped and lacking anti-tank equipment to counter hundreds of Soviet tanks and armoured cars. The invasion of Finland would later be remembered by determined defense of the Mannerheim Line, well utilised Motti tactics and incompetence of Soviet leaders in the opening days of the war. A conflict later known as Winter War had begun and it would last until March 13, 1940. It had claimed over 400 thousand lives and led to another conflict between Finland and the Soviet Union in 1941 - the Continuation War. On that day we would like to share some of our WIP screenshots:

We'll never forget.

 

The pics look so awesome, can't wait! Hoping to see a winter uniform (lumipuku) for winter scenarios too.
