Greetings everyone!

Operation “Plan Jaune” has started and it will take you to the fields of France and Belgium in 1940. Choose to fight for the French Army or Wehrmacht (1940 version) across 2 new maps (Stonne and Dinant) and another one coming later, as well as multiple new vehicles and weapons.


Invite your friends for the Free Weekend campaign that will run from today until the 12th, as well as a 25% discount to the game until the 13th. The Free Weekend and Sale will start at 7 PM GMT | 8 PM CET | 10 AM PST | 1 PM PST



STONNE


The village of Stonne became infamously known by how dangerous the French Char B1 tank was in combat. One man made a name for himself, Capt. Pierre Billotte who commanded the thickly armoured “Eure” tank which sustained several attacks of the German offensive during May of 1940. The tank destroyed 13 German tanks of the Panzer III and IV variant as well as taking over 140 hits from German tanks and anti-tank guns and surviving the battle. The town itself exchanged hands between the French and Germans seventeen times during the two days of struggle for control of the city.

DINANT


The city of Dinant is located north of the Ardennes forest in Belgium and took part in the fighting to defend Belgium and stop the German advance across the river Meuse. The city saw considerable combat between the French and Belgium forces against the German Panzer divisions including Rommel's 7th Panzer "Ghost Division" as they would be nicknamed. After the battle, Dinant itself lay in ruins and was a shell of its former self. This is represented in-game by how destroyed the city looks.

Greetings!

It's time for us to talk about the second map you will be getting with the launch of Plan Jaune called Dinant. A third map will be coming later.




DINANT

The city of Dinant is located north of the Ardennes forest in Belgium and took part in the fighting to defend Belgium and stop the German advance across the river Meuse. The city saw considerable combat between the French and Belgium forces against the German Panzer divisions including Rommel's 7th Panzer "Ghost Division" as they would be nicknamed.



After the battle, Dinant itself lay in ruins and was a shell of its former self. This is represented in-game by how destroyed the city looks.



There will be intense house to house fighting in the narrow streets of Dinant, as well as close quarter combat within the Citadel that sits atop the mountain that looms over the city.



The many tunnels and passageways hidden around the map will provide cover and concealment for troop movements. While claustrophobic tank combat in the streets will put even the most experienced tankers to the test.





GERMAN ARMY (1940 Edition)

(left) German Army 1940 | (right) German Army 1944


The German Army is not new to Post Scriptum or Plan Jaune, but they have had their uniforms updated to be accurate to the time period of 1940. This also means they have lost some of their famous equipment that was featured in Chapter 1 such as the StG44, Panzerfaust, Panzerschreck, G41, G43, MP40 and of course the MG-42.

A video of the new weapons and their animations can be watched on our official website
This means they will receive fewer automatic weapons and need to rely more on their trusty Karabiner 98K. However, we have also added some new weapons that include the MP34, ZB 26, Panzerbüsche 39 (PzB 39) Anti-Tank Rifle and M39 Grenade.




Weapons weren't the only change in Plan Jaune, there are also some new vehicles for the German army. The new vehicles such as the Panthers and Tigers of 1944 are now replaced with early war vehicles such as the Panzer II, Panzer 38(t) and the Panzer IV.



To conclude, the German army in 1940 are much more barebones and accurate to the period which will undoubtedly change the way the faction is played. We are excited to see how players are going to approach the battles in this new chapter.



We want to thank you all for your support as we work on finishing this exciting new chapter!

Sincerely,
Periscope Games

POST SCRIPTUM: PLAN JAUNE
Plan Jaune is the French translation of Fall Gelb (Case Yellow), an offensive operation that consisted of the armoured forces of Germany pushing through the Ardennes to encircle and cut off the British and French troops. A war plan that had dramatic repercussions in the Battle of France in 1940.

This is the historical background that you will soon be a part of in Post Scriptum.
Plan Jaune will bring you 3 maps (1 of them coming after launch), the French Army and Wehrmacht (1940 version), along with countless new vehicles and weapons.




STONNE
One of the two new maps that you will be getting with the launch of Chapter 2 is a small village called Stonne, located around 40 km south of the Ardennes.


The village of Stonne became infamously known by how dangerous the French Char B1 tank was in combat. One man made a name for himself, Capt. Pierre Billotte who commanded the thickly armoured “Eure” tank which sustained several attacks of the German offensive during May of 1940. The tank destroyed 13 German tanks of the Panzer III and IV variant as well as taking over 140 hits from German tanks and anti-tank guns and surviving the battle. The town itself exchanged hands between the French and Germans seventeen times during the two days of struggle for control of the city.

Stonne itself is composed of a destroyed village in its center, large open fields for armoured advantage and rolling hills to provide important strategic points for infantry forces. As it is quite often the case in Post Scriptum, combined arms coordination will be the key for one of the teams to prevail.



FRENCH FACTION
Plan Jaune brings you France as a faction with historical outfits, equipment and vehicles of the time period.


The french infantryman's uniform looks much like you'd expect a soldier from the early war period to look like, wearing World War 1 trench coats and bulky and cumbersome rucksacks.

There are plenty of unique looking weapons that are under their disposal such as the Lebel, Berthier and MAS-36 rifles, MAS-38 submachine-gun and machine guns like the Chauchat and Mac 24.



The French officer has a distinct attire and will be armed with the MAS-38 machine pistol and a revolver.


With the french faction also comes new weapons and equipment including but certainly not limited to the Chauchat, Lebel, MAS36, MAS38, Berthier, Boys Anti-Tank Rifle, Revolver Modelle 1892, Modelle 1935a pistol, Modelle 1935 and 1936 mines, F1 Grenade and much more.

A video of the new weapons and their animations can be watched on our official website

The French Army had unusual designs for vehicles like the Laffly truck, which has multiple variants like the W15TCC which was a hastily built anti-tank vehicle, mounting a 47mm anti-tank gun facing backwards on the bed of the truck.


You can expect to see new tanks such as the Renault R.35, Hotchkiss H.35, Somua S.35 and of course the infamous Char B1 "Eure". Many french tanks were designed only to carry 2 or 3 crew members, this means that vehicles like the Char B1 the driver will also be the gunner of the hull gun, while the turret gunner is also the commander.




We certainly hope you enjoyed this Devblog exploring some of the stuff you can expect coming with Chapter 2.

Stay tuned for the next Devblog which will introduce the second Plan Jaune map as well as the Wehrmacht of 1940!


Sincerely,
Periscope Games
