The war game WW2 Total is the first PC game which combines strategy gaming together with first-person-shooter battles between Axis and Allies. This unique combination is an independent development by gamers for gamers.

Many of the introduced WW2 weapons (tanks, aircrafts, warships, guns) are elements or will be in future elements of the war game and the statistics and technical datas are used for the continuos expansion and development of it.

LATEST REPORT

WW2 affected virtually every corner of the globe. In the six years between 1939 and 1945, some 50 million people lost their lives, and very few who survived were not affected. It was the costliest and most widespread conflict the world has ever seen.
It was fought on land, sea and in the air with weapons which had first been used in the Great War of 1914-18. Ironically, an even greater conflict was to emerge from the burning embers of that "war to end all wars", and with it huge advances in weapons technology.
The countries involved in WW2 now had the means and the capability to fight each other in a more efficient - and more deadly - manner.
Yet only Great Britain, her Empire allies and Germany were involved during the whole period (and, of course, Japan and China since 1937). For other nations the conflict was of a shorter duration. The USA and Japan, for example, were at war from December 1941 to August 1945 (and the USA was simultaneously at war with Germany, until Hitler's defeat in May 1945).
The situation was so complicated, the skeins of alliance and enmity so intertwined that it would take a very large chart indeed to describe them. Only one factor was more straightforward and common to all the countries involved: the nature of the WW2 weapons that the men (and sometimes women) used to fight their way to victory - or defeat.

There were differences in detail of the WW2 weapons, of course: the German Panzerkampfwagen V Panther tank was a very different vehicle from the American M4 Sherman, the Russian T-34, or the British Cromwell.
But essentially they were all much the same - armoured vehicles mounting powerful guns running on tracks.

The small arms with which the various combatant nations equipped their armies were very different in detail too, but essentially they were all devices for launching projectiles at high speed.

In short, many would simply say that guns are guns, bombs are bombs, aircraft are aircraft, and so on.
But there is certainly more to it than that, for the capacity to win or lose a war actually rested on these WW2 weapons' qualities, just as much as it did on the fighting skills of those who employed them and on the strategic sense of those who directed them in their use.

War Diary

 

All WW2 Weapons have a short story about their history and development, data, pictures and 3d model. The weapons are aircrafts, tanks, infantry weapons, artillery guns and warships.

This archive is under regular extension and is always updated.

Most on this website available fighter and bomber planes, tanks, infantry weapons, artillery guns and warships are - or will be in future elements - of the war game WW2 Total and the information are used for it's continuous expansion and development.
