Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that “the Rats” soon would be there;

Well here it is; the Christmas update.

This Christmas update primarily serves to introduce new, yes NEW! content into the game.

As an added Christmas bonus, this update also addresses the longer term issue of “Un-killable Infantry”.


New Content (SPAAs)

- Sd.Kfz 7/2 AA (Axis Forces)

- Crusader III AA Mk1 (All Allied Forces)

For the time being, the Sd.Kfz 7/2 AA is using the current Bofors gun for its artwork, until the actual 37mm FlaK 36 AA artwork can be made game ready. The data in use IS for the 37mm FlaK 36 AA however.

On the other hand the Crusader III AA Mk1 is mounting the tried and true “Bofors 40mm Automatic Gun”.

World War II Online currently supports:

The new fortified mobile spawn is now the main mobile spawn point. Infantry and both light anti-tank and light anti-aircraft guns can be spawned from these points. As the name suggests, it is fortified and capable of withstanding lots of hits. The FMS is truck deployed only, and there can only be a single spawn point per mission. It can be placed both on the frontier and in cities. There are two firing slits on the front of the object for defenders, and instructions on the wall to join Teamspeak and how to setup a zone of control (ZOC).

[HOW TO ATTACK] Bombs from Aircraft, HE satchels and HE rounds from mortars or artillery / tank guns will have the most impact. However, small arms (including grenades) will have no effect.

[HOW TO DEFEND] Expand your fortification by deploying multiple objects around the FMS (especially the Gun Emplacement [GE] ) and spawn light guns. The [GE] looks the same as the FMS from the air, therefore concealing it from being obvious.


The UMS is the old FRU model (boxes with radio), and may be only deployed within large cities. It is cumbersome and capable of fitting into tight spots the FMS cannot. Spawning only infantry (no guns), it is also very weak in terms of tolerance to damage. This object CANNOT be placed on the frontier, this is intentional.


A small box with ammunition visible (not the old FRU boxes). These ammo boxes can be deployed multiple times on a single (or many) missions. This will offer a wide variety of supply points throughout fights for all ground based weapons. It has a 15 minute lifetime unless an infantry man resets the timer by walking over the boxes.


Placeable by Engineer class only, and destroyable by HE satchels and bombs from aircraft only. A single HE satchel will remove this object. HE satchels are available with the Engineer (4), Sapper (2) and now Bolt-Action Rifleman (1) classes.


Placeable by Engineer and Standard Bolt-Action Rifleman classes only (not Semi-Auto). Sandbags are immune to small arms fire (grenades and anti-tank rifle can damage), and heavier weaponry will obliterate the object.


[INFANTRY] Simply select the PPO build tool (9 key), Left Mouse Button (LMB) to place, Right Mouse Button (RMB) to cycle objects available to your class.

[TRUCKS] Select Z to deploy, then hit (Backspace key) to cycle. (3 November 16)
