Normandy landings Day

The start date of the landing became known as “D-Day”: it was the first phase of Operation Overlord, which opened a second front in Western Europe.

TZ-45 squad, they’re quite good, nothing exceptional tho.
There are “two paratroopers”, the fake ones with kirally 43m and real one with FG.
I own all 3.


THESE OLD SQUADS NEED TO BE GIVEN AN ENGINEER. We bought them with real money and supported this game in the early days. ALL PREMIUM SQUADS without an engineer NEED AN ENGINEER. Just do it. They can go away forever or come back as new later. But don’t screw over the people who bought into this game from the very beginning. Come on @1942786 you know it’s the right thing to do and it won’t break the game.


Dont have enough slots, I already have 10 slots


Damn, amazing event after amazing event, darkflow never fails to impress.


Premium paratroopers discounted? So sad. This seems like a betrayal of pre-order players.


What squad would you recommend to buy?

I guess i will get it then :slight_smile: what else would you recommend? I think since we get free paratroopers for normandy, is it worth getting the premium one?

Yes, it’s much worth, I had Alot of fun with the premium paratroopers.

Colt monitor on us side is also a nice premium
Kirally on German side is one of my favorite guns in-game. And one, of the best smgs overall


To be honest, i struggle with much recoil, so the kiraly and the fallschirmjäger gewehr are guns that i can barely shoot… So i dont know about high caliber guns…


Quick side note, that once fully upgraded, the kirally squad soldiers can get both recoil reduction perks (5 star soldiers have 30 handling perk points) and as a passive they get extra -15 vertical reduction.(every handling point it’s 0.5 % vertical recoil reduction)

This is as today, I dont know if will change or not, but in my humble opinion make the gun a practical Laser.

Is the tempest any good / fun?

Why is this squad leaving the store? The TZ-45 isn’t. Is the UD M42 being added to regular progression?
