WARNO: British and French Forces Have Arrived


The British 1st Armoured Division and the French 5e Division Blindée have arrived in the strategy game WARNO via the new BESSIERES Update.

The British 1st Armoured Division is well-known for its superior tanks. Players can deploy lots of Chieftain Mk.9, Chieftain Mk. 11, and Challenger Mk.1 battle tanks on the battlefield as they wish. These tanks move slowly, but they wield enough firepower to level the playing field, thanks to their 120mm tank gun. This division also contains the Centurion Mk.5 AVRE, which is the British equivalent to the M728 with the same 165mm M135 short-barreled demolition gun.

While the British 1st Armoured Division is packed with a lot of great tanks, the French 5e Division Blindée is more well-rounded, thanks to the versatility of its units. The division’s infantry comes equipped with FAMAS assault rifles, ANF-1 medium machine guns, and LRAC F1 automatic weapons that can make quick work of the enemy. The 5e Division Blindée also features some strong anti-air (AA) defenses, including the TRM-2000 Tarasque gun tracks that have 20mm AA guns, and the AMX-13 DCA with twin 30mm weapons and radar.
