    This little mod focusses on the events of the war between Russia and the Ottoman Empire in 1877 and 1878.

This means: Breechloading repeating rifles, no more stoking at guns, blood effects, new artillery pieces, death screams, very high rifle range, deployable earthworks, gabionades and palisades. Gun batteries are much bigger now, to create a deadly shrapnel fire.

    Russia
    Romania
    Serbia
    Bulgaria
    Greece
    vs.
    The OttomanEmpire

    exactly unfortunetally it has not so many fighting scenes. but there is another movie, called "heroes of shipka". its a soviet propaganda movie, but its based on facts and the uniforms and stuff are correct.
    it depicts the battle of shipka from russian perspective.

    Me gusta (y)

    Piyade = Infantry
    Suvari = Cavalry
    Basi = Head of (bin = 1000, yuz = 100)
    Topu = Canonneer
    Humbaraci = Grenadier ?
    Mizika = Drummer
    Deniz = Sea
    Subayi = Officer Of
    Subay = Officer
    Er = Lowest Rank Soldier
    Eri = Lowest rank soldier of ...

    First line = before European Dress
    2nd Line = after European Dress

    These are the units in the II Mahmud era, 1808–1839 but Ottoman Units did not have much of a reform from that time until the early 1900s, am I wrong ?

    Bonjour, welcome me back from my break(down).

    I shall have you know, the Turkish units are so badly made, and the colors destructive to the eye. I believe you should better use one of your own models from TWTEAW. And coloring as well.





    That's a better image of the Turkish infantry.

    And the rifles... man... the rifles.... why? Again, use some models from TWTEAW.

    Need more stuff from the era, i am your man.

    goutlard: yes your stuff is outdated

    comnenus: nice to see you.......or so
    im working at the turks..... but the colours are correct...well maybe i should darken the blue a bit.

    first pic: turkish guard, not made yet. they wear a higher fez than the rest.
    second pic: very dark colours, line infantrists and 1 bashi bazouk
    third pic: shoddy colours. it seems that the turks use many shades of blue.

    And the rifles... man... the rifles.... why? Again, use some models from TWTEAW.
    martini henry....british rifle sold en masse. the russians began to introduce the brendan II rifle and gave them to the guards. but the mass of the troops used repeating rifles.
    dont worry ill add the backpacks of TWTEAW.
    springfield 1903, smle(1888) and mauser M 1898.......why the should i use them?

    Actually the British were too busy making M-H's for their own troops so the Turks got them from a company in the US, however the weapons themselves were completely identical to Martini-Henry Mark 1's. Just a small historical point.

    Personally I would make the Ottoman blue colour darker-it certainly wouldn't stay that bright when on active service, and that film does have it somewhat too light (for info's sake the VTW Ottoman blue colour is more like in Comnenus' pictures). Your choice however.

    Well, actually thats the depiction of a russian high budget film that really makes no sense. In actuality, their uniform was far more practical, utilitarian and heavy duty, compared to the baggy things they wear in the turkish gambit. Actually, if you check the VTW roster for the Ottomans, you will get a real good view of the Ottoman infantry of that time.

    Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite.... oh no.... oh no I am sorry, i am so sorry, i promise, it will never happen again.

    Really though, if you at least had a battles only preview BETA out, it would be far better for your mod. It's the long waiting, together with the lack of previews that gives that total negativity. You see that kid PM? In one year flat, he made rosters for 20 different factions. Are you telling me you can't do that in one year?

    This isn't the place to comment on VTW, suffice to say that Punitor has the benefit of being able to model and get models in-game, and VTW is somewhat short on people with that capability, since those we did have have a habit of going awol. Since Xwhyzed recently? We've done a massive amount in the db tables/startpos/in-game images and a few other bits and bobs, but since that's all pretty boring compared with fancy new models I don't publicise it.

    Also, wondering where Punitor got some of the new rifle models?


    Back to this mod, I wasn't aware that the Khartoum and Zulu mod had any rifles close to the Berdan, so what are you intending to do for that Punitor? I know some Russian units did use variants of the martini henry (the cossacks used a carbine version bought from Belgium for one thing), but they didn't all use it. You might actually want to use the Mauser 1898 we gave you as it's quite close comparatively speaking, though not exactly identical.

    ill match the TWTEAW equip file with the karthoum and zulu mod one. but first ill have a look at the k & z mod equip and look for some berdan-like
    well, the turks are retextured, the artillery fires a munition that does in 60% of the cases explode as shrapnel in the air and in 40% of cases work as a percussive shell. depends on coincidence what happens.
    the simpliest way to create heavily effective artillery without changing the ammo type. it also makes high impact damage on buildings BTW.

    where is this ottoman roster of VTW?
