The transports are just like everything else we've seen so far....awesome! Now...if you could just get Malta, Crete, and the Eastern Med. into this mod, with all the logistical flavor of the theater, naval air components, then this would be the definitive North African game.

DAK PzKfw IIF / DAK PzKfw IIIG



DAK leFH 18 105mm (in March/April only the I.Btl of the 75th Artillery Rgt - 5th light Division - DAK:........DAK MG-Infantry (2nd and 8th MG-Btl of the 200th motorized infantry regiment - 5th light division - DAK):
(from May 1941 also the I. + II. Btl of the 33rd Artillery Regiment - 15th tank division - DAK)

In Africa Corps you can fire with a real 105mm leFH18 !

Crete is ready and you can see it in the next weeks at my Slitherine account.
Malta comes with Africa Corps , but in the 2nd pack on the end of September - now I will finish the DAK Campaign battles for 1941. Also I plan in an 4th packet to show you the battles of Tunis and all the fictiv battles fom Alexandria and Cairo to the Levante. And naturally all comes with new terrain tiles !!!

Curious, how do you plan on integrating the Nord afrika scenarios with the current campaigns? Is there a tree where we can see what a defeat or victory leads to? Say from the Russian front, etc. Or is this just a standalone campaign?

I really should not answer for the creator of this excellent mod, but I'll wager that it is a stand alone campaign....

Its a stand alone Campaign - DAK - you will need an extra installed Panzer Corps together with my packet.

I can only chime in with the rest... it's awesome.
Sorry to bring this up, but is the right wing of the Stuka correct? It seems to miss the angle in the wing? And the wheels of the Me seem a bit off as well, as if it was landing/taking off? Or maybe I'm wrong and in that case I apologize. Well we wouldn't notice it on the smaller scale anyway.

No - its only an optical viewing error - in this rendering you can see that the right wing is also like the left wing.

This one is looking more like BF109 F series, however is missing the dust filter used in North Africa.

Anyway, great job with the mod.

Thats right, but thats the drive position and I looked at many photos , the gunner stand with his legs left and right over the equipment ! We can set only one position , but with an improved version I can animate all the units in every direction - than you can see also an loading gunner on the more backside of the PanzerJäeger IB.

No - my Africa Corps is an stay alone version for Panzer Corps - not compatible with the engine and parameters of the original game.
But at Oktober I will set all units and terrain tiles to a new improved version for Western Europe, Eastern Front and mediterranean Front - than you can play with the desert scenarios. All the units comes new, with new terrain tiles and parameters to improve the original game engine to my big map style 1km = 1 Hex with historical units, names and camourflage on historical military maps and deployments.

So do you recommend that we install a seperate vanilla version of PG in a different folder, and then install your mod in that one?

Africa Corps runs only with patch 1.01 and yes you must install a seperate version of your Panzer Corps.
