.:Welcome to the D-day website:.

D-day is a modification for the highly acclaimed computer game Red Alert 2 and its expansion Yuri's Revenge. It changes Red Alert 2's original cartoony and arcade style gameplay into a more realistic World War II theme.

There are over a thousand new units to build and fight with, spanning from the early beginnings of the conflict in the 1920's onto a hypothetical what-if continuation of the war into the 1960's and beyond.

If you have any questions please use the forums or leave a message in the shout box on this page.

.:Back from the dead:.

Yes your eyes do not deceive you, new D-day news post! It's been nearly a year since the last news post, this has mainly been due to a technical problem that blocked me from accessing the D-day website & forums, thus I was unable to post anything for over 10 months! Sadly during this time I was somewhat demotivated to work on D-day, I still made a few random units for fun but I didn't make that much overall progress tho.

Gladly now that the problem has been resolved I'm feeling refreshed, revitalized & ready to work on D-day again. So to kick things back into action I've made a set of generic buildings as well as a generic sidebar & loading screen. These graphics will be used as placeholders for where I have yet to make specific national themed artwork. Which can normally take months to just research & several more to make all the 3D models.

So with this set France will no longer be using those hideous grey boxes with "placeholders" written across them. It also means that the new countries of Poland, China, Sweden & Czechoslovakia that I have been slowing working on will be include as playable (but incomplete) sides in the next release along with Japan. These are of course just placeholders & each of these country will receive unique national artwork in a later release.

I also plan to make a set of generic defensive buildings as well in the near future & of course I still have a backlog of over a 100 units that I still haven't posted/added to the wiki yet too so expect more news to come soon.

.:Fields of Battle:.

It's June 6th, D-day! This day also marks the 14th anniversary of the D-day mod. To celebrate I've created map sized screenshots of five new maps that will be included in D-day's next release, along with information about other maps in development.



Axis:

Click to enlarge: 19mb

A four player tournament style map set in an urban harbour shaped like a swastika. This map served as a test bed for the new sets of urban cliffs & features multi-levelled areas & tunnels. Note: The use of a swastika layout might be somewhat controversial, however the shape creates a balanced yet interesting design & is currently my favourite map to play on.       
 

Allied:

Click to enlarge: 30mb

A five player map in the shape of the Allied star & circle.

Mountain Guns: 6 player
guns_map_s.png
Click to enlarge: 29mb

Mountain Guns is a remake of my favourite C&C Generals map of the same name. This map served as a test bed for the new sets of rock cliffs & features multi-layers cliff faces. Note: The road & bridge graphics will be replaced in the near future.


River Valley: 6 player
valley_map_s.png
Click to enlarge: 30mb

A long six player map featuring a winding river through a valley. It also features a train line weaving in and out of the mountains along the edge of the map.


Island Roulette: 8 player
roulette_map_s.png
Click to enlarge: 55mb

An extremely large eight player map of a circular island with separate areas for each player connected to a central mountain.  


I have several other maps in various stages of Development for D-day...

No Man's Land:
A World War 1 themed map with a large network of trenches, that players can occupy & fight over.

Train Duel: (wip name)
A two player map featuring buildable armoured trains & two loops of track that run parallel to each other in the center of the map.

World War:
A large map based on the world map.

Corregidor:
A large island map based on the US base on Corregidor in the Philippines.

Paris:
A large map of the French capitol, featuring the Eiffel tower at the center.

Washington DC:
Large map of the US capitol, featuring many famous landmarks & monuments.

Soviet:
Counterpart to the Axis & Allied maps. I haven't decided on an exact layout yet, but this will be the first snow map in D-day.


Lastly I would like to point out that all of these maps are subject to change. Some of the graphics will be replaced in the near future & new terrain that is currently in development will be added. So you can expect the maps to have more details when they are included in the next release.

.:French Defences:.

I'm back with more D-day news and this time the French are getting some love with a completely new set of defences.

My main source of inspiration for these defences is the Maginot Line of bunkers along France's border with Germany and Italy. The Maginot Line was built in the 1930s when tensions in Europe started to rise. It was the largest defensive network ever created and much of it still stands today. In order to represent the Maginot Line and give France a unique gameplay feature, their defences can be placed near each other to create indestructible walls that can only be removed by destroying the defensive structures. This give a French player the ability to create complex and unique base fortifications.

GFM Cloche

The GFM Cloche was a heavily armoured machine gun post used on the French Maginot Line of defences. Over a thousand of them were built and were used on the roofs of the every bunker along the defensive line.


75mm AC Mle.39
75ac39.jpg


The 75mm AC Mle.39 (aka 75mm TAZ 39) was an anti-tank weapon designed during the opening stages of world war 2, it was hoped that it would replace the ageing 75mm Mle.1897 field gun in the AT role but only a few prototypes where finished before the armistice and all development was stopped soon after. Like many AT weapons of that era it was a modification of an anti-aircraft weapon, the 75mm CA Mle.38. It was fitted on a new type of 3 legged carriage with the gun fitted on a rotating mount, giving it the ability to turn 360o without moving the carriage. The 75mm AC Mle.39 was also designed to take advantage of a new type of ammunition that was also being developed at that time by Edgar Brandt. This new round used a discarding sabot to fire a shell at increased speeds. As France began to fall Brandt evacuated to England where he continued his work, helping to develop an armour piercing discarding sabot round for the British 6pdr and 17pdr guns. Today the APDS round is used as the standard anti-tank round in all modern tanks.


SS.11
Ss11.jpg


The SS.11 was a French wire guided anti-tank missile designed in the early 1950s. It was a further development of the SS.10 which was a smaller missile primarily designed for use by infantry, the larger SS.11 was instead designed for use on tanks, aircraft and ships. It saw widespread use by NATO forces, as well as numerous other countries around the world and on many different vehicles. The most notable though is the Alouette II which with the SS.11 became the first ever anti-tank helicopter.


25mm CA Mle.40J
25ca40.jpg


During the early 1930's Hotchkiss developed a new 25mm light anti-aircraft weapon, their attempts to sell the design to the French Army and Navy failed though, they instead preferred a 37mm design being developed by Schneider. They managed to find some interest on the export market from Romanian and Spain, Japan also bought a licence to produced it as the Type 96 25mm. With Hotchkiss's success on the export market and the delay of Schneider's 37mm weapon the French Army and Navy decided to also order the 25mm CA. By the time of the German invasion of France in 1940 only a limited amount of the 25mm CA where available, most were taken from the production batch originally meant for Romania. After the armistice limited production continued under the Vichy French and Romania finally received its weapons in 1943.


75mm CA Mle.38
75ca38.jpg


The 75mm CA Mle.38 was a medium anti-aircraft weapon designed by Schneider. Work started in 1928 by modifying their famous 75mm Mle.1897 field gun on to an anti-aircraft mount, by the design was finished in 1932 and testing started. Schneider continued working on the design though and finish a new improved model in 1936, it entered service in 1938 and was used during the German invasion. The Swiss also bought several of them before the war, designated 75mm Flab Kan 38.


Bofors 40mm L/70
Fbfor.jpg


I covered the history of the Bofors 40mm L/70 in the last news post with the Japanese version. I wont repeat myself so if you didn't read that post you can click on the link above to go to D-day wiki page.


135mm Mle.32
135mm32.jpg


The 135mm Mle.32 was the main heavy artillery weapon used in the French Maginot Line of fortifications. A pair of them were normally placed within an armoured retractable turret on top of an ouvrage, some where also used in fixed mounts within the forts. The German plan for the invasion of France bypassed the majority of the Maginot Line, some small battles did take place though. During which the 135mm Mle.32 proved to be an effective weapon at defending against the German's advance. Several ouvrages and their 135mm Mle.32 weapons have been restored and are open as museums.


155mm Mle.50
155mm50.jpg


155mm Mle.50 was a French artillery gun design in 1950, it served as the main artillery weapon of the French army for over 30 years. Originally designed as a towed weapon it was also mounted on various tanks to create self propelled guns. Several other nations bought the 155mm Mle.50, the main ones being Switzerland and Israel, Sweden also bought a licence to produce the gun as the 15.5cm haubits F. Most countries have replaced it newer weapons but a few are still being use in Syrian today.


Gate
Fra_gate.jpg


The Gate is used to allow allied units access to fortified areas while providing defence against enemies. The design is based on rolling anti-tank barriers used in the Maginot Line.

M40 106mm
M40_106mm.jpg

M40_106mm_3d.gif

In 1944 the US Army developed their first recoilless rifle the M18 57mm, impressed with the design work started on larger 75mm and 105mm versions. The M20 75mm was deployed in the closing days of the war but the T19 105mm was still in development when the war ended and was soon after cancelled. With the outbreak of the Korean War the M18 57mm and M20 75mm recoilless rifles struggled to penetrate the armour of the North-Korean T-34/85 tanks, so work on the larger 105mm version was restarted and the T19 was rushed into production as the M27 105mm in 1950. Once deployed into the field it was found that that the M27 suffered from reliability problems and several other issues, so work on an improved version was started. By 1952 all the problems had be resolved and the M40 106mm was put into production. The M40 was called an 106mm weapon but it was really 105mm, this was because the ammunition for the M27 & M40 looked nearly identical but was not interchangeable between the two, so to help differentiate them the M40 and it's ammunition was classified as 106mm. The M40 went on to became the standard anti-tank weapon of America and it's allies, the M40 has also been mounted on many different vehicles ranging from Jeeps to tanks.


Bofors 40mm L/70
Jbfor_40mm.jpg

Jbfor_40mm_3d.gif

During WW2 the Bofors 40mm L/60 was the standard anti-aircraft gun of the Allies, being used on land, sea and air. With the advent of the jet age at the end of the war the venerable Bofors started to struggled with the increase of aircraft speeds. To combat this Bofors designed a new version with a longer 70 caliber barrel, an electrically powered carriage and a new lighter and more powerful ammunition. These changes nearly doubled the range and rate of fire of the weapon and in 1953 replaced the L/60 model as the standard Allies/NATO weapon system. The Bofors 40mm L/70 was also bought by many different countries around the world and is still in widespread use today.


M1A1 155mm
M1a1_155mm.jpg

M1a1_155mm_3d.gif

At the outbreak of the war in Europe the standard American 155mm artillery weapon was the ageing M1918 155mm which was built during WW1, with the threat of war looming a replacement was desperately needed. Work on the new 155mm weapon was completed in 1941 along with a 4.7-inch gun which used the same carriage design. In 1942 it was accepted at the M1 155mm and fought throughout WW2 on all fronts. It continued to serve with the American army in the Korean war and then the Vietnam War, eventually being replaced in 1978 by the M198. Over 10,000 M1, M1A1 and M1A2 where built during its 12 year production run and was sold to 35 different countries around the world, some of which are still using them today.

.:Polish Trucks:.

With this news post we return to Poland for some Trucking. While not as glamorous as their armoured brethren, these units form the core of your base and will keep your economy flowing.


Click of the unit names to visit their D-day wiki page for more information & pictures.


PZInz.713
Pz713_3d.gif
Pz713.jpg

The PZInz.713 was heavy transport truck designed in 1937 by the Państwowe Zakłady Inżynieryjne (National Engineering Works) to replace the licence built Italian Polski Fiat 621L. A limited series of 100 vehicles was produced during 1939 with mass production of twenty thousand to start the following year. In September 1939 the Germans and Soviets invaded Poland putting a halt to all production. As fighting intensified and Poland's fate seemed bleak, a convoy of PZInz.713 trucks was loaded with Poland's gold reserves and evacuate to Romania.

The PZInz.713 is used as Poland's construction vehicle


Polski Fiat 621L
621l_3d.gif
621l.jpg

Initially Poland bought the Fiat 621 directly from factories in Italy, however it was soon found that the design struggled on some of Poland's rougher roads. Even with this problem the Fiat 621 was still liked so PZInz designed a new version with a reinforced chassis and a more powerful engine to better fit Polish needs. A licence to produce this modified design in Poland was agreed on and production started in 1935 with thirteen thousand being built by 1939, making it one of the most numerous trucks in Poland during the 1930's.

The Polski Fiat 621L is used as the pre/early-war supply vehicle


PZInz.342
Pz342_3d.gif
Pz342.jpg

The PZInz.342 was a wheeled prime mover designed to replace the half track C4P in the role of towing artillery and anti-aircraft guns. By August 1939 five prototypes had been completed, an order for a further 200 was placed with mass production expected to start early next year. The fate of the five prototypes is unknown, none of them survived the war.

The PZInz.342 is used as the mid/late-war supply vehicle


Lublin-51

Lub51.jpg

The Lublin-51 was a Polish licence built copy of the Soviet GAZ-51 truck, which was the standard truck used by the communist bloc countries post-war. Production started in November 1951 and continued until 1959 with seventeen an a half thousand being built, many of which still survive today in various forms ranging from simple farm trucks to racing hot-rods!

The Lublin-51 is used as the post-war supply vehicle
