Downloaded "EWV-Weapons.rar" to see what weapons I might be able to add for variety and surprised they were WW2 versus Vietnam-era.    Surprised   Any chance of updating the description to add that info for clarity?  Smile

Ta mate.  No major worries.  It just caught me by surprise.  Laughing

Actually after checking out their files its obvious they were the basis for many of the weapons in the various EWV / WW2 conversions though some were indeed used in the early stages or throughout Vietnam.

Well, you have been a busy beaver.  Smile

 First off, I guess I should have explained that my original purpose in downloading the file was to find Vietnam-era weapons such as the Stoner, H&R T223, Hush Puppy, etc.  Granted this is a MACV-SOG game; but nothing says you can't play a single mission as a SEAL or Force Recon for variety.  There is nothing wrong that these were WW2-era weapons as many were indeed used during the conflict, I was just not expecting them.  Sorry if there was any confusion.    Embarassed

 Anyway, I think the statement "In amongst these weapons are some that were used during the Second World War, but also some that survived into the Vietnam War" is good start though it seems busy.  Then again, I might be reading it wrong.  After all, weren't all of them used during the Second World War?

 Maybe something like "Fourteen new WW2-era weapons by Bassface and Andy C.  Many of these weapons were also used in the Vietnam War." Or something to that effect which would be similar to the text used in the D-DAY3-to-EWV description.

  This also takes away the need to individually list WW2/Vietnam for each weapon. For instance, you only listed the German weapons as "WW2." In reality, captured German weapons such as the Kar98, MG42, and MP40 were provided as military aid by the Soviet Union during the First Indochina War.  Furthermore, the French had made Kar98's and many of these were also used in French Indochina.  Therefore, the Vietnamese might be using captured German, or captured French, Kar98's during the conflict.

I know a lot of weapons were captured by other armies and copied as well.
Glad to be of assistance though.
Very interesting subject this as i used to be gun mad.
2 of my brothers were in the second world war RAF, and 2 were in the RAF during the 50's after being called up for national service.
One in the military police in Kenya during the Mau Mau Uprising so our kitchen cupboard had 303 rifles, and a 45 pistol in a white holster in it at different times with a chest of drawers full of a collection of different bullets in a bedroom  Laughing
I think everyone in the street had a war souvenir of some sort.
Some boys were caught one day playing football with a hand grenade which was traced to a box full dumped under a bridge in the road Surprised

No worries.  I still think the clarification was still needed since Nam might as well be ancient history these days for most folks.  I was in at the tail end; but didn't go over.  

I got my "gun madness" from my dad.  He was Army infantry during WW2 and the best advice he gave me was Go Navy.  Laughing

Anyway, he gave me a .22 rifle for my seventh birthday, teaching me the basics as we'd spent time down by the levee.  Little did I know that years later one of my collateral duties would be as a Small Arms Marksmanship Instructor (SAMI) training folks on pistols, rifles, and shotguns.  I preferred the M14 over the M16 on the range; but admit I was happy I had an M16 when I was in the jungles. Of course, I would have preferred the M4 which is replacing the M16 via phased transition.

No war souvenir hand grenades; but during the mid-80's we were moving several pallets of ammo and as we finished one pallet I spotted a couple boxes of ammo that had fallen through the slats.  Of all things they turned out to be .30-carbine.  Shocked  No telling how long they had been down there.  The M1, M2, & M3 Carbines were taken out of service circa 1973; but these boxes were marked 1944. Not sure what to do with this "unaccounted for" ammo ... I offered to get rid of the evidence.  Twisted Evil As luck would have it I stored my weapons in the armory and I had a Universal Carbine.  Only had one misfire in those two boxes.  Very Happy
