Caen

The Liberation of Caen was one of the biggest battles of the Normandy campaign, pitching Allied liberators against German forces in occupied France. It is a map featured in Battlefield 1942.

ConquestEdit

The only map to feature the Canadian forces, the Canadians must launch an attack from their unconquerable base upon the five conquerable German positions, one on the Canadian side of the canal, one at Pegasus bridge and the other three in the town of Caen.

In addition to their unconquerable base, Canadian forces can utilize a paratroop spawn point on the Caen side of the canal once they have captured at least one German flag.

BasesEdit

Allied BaseEdit

The Ally base is where the Canadian Army will spawn at. It's unconquerable and is accessible by two bridges. The layout is a simple brown building that spawns a Sexton, an M4 Sherman, a Lynx scout car outside.

South BaseEdit

This is an artillery base, There is a repair station near the tank spawn. It also spawns a mobile artillery unit, a scout car and a medium tank. There's a two-story building that holds a medical cabinet and an ammunition crate on the bottom floor. The upper floor consists of a bedroom where snipers can fire on Canadian or German attackers. Near the base are two commando rafts which only spawn when the flag is controlled by the Canadians. Two MG emplacements can be found here, one overlooking the artillery in a guard tower, while the other is in a bunker overlooking the raft spawn position.

Pegasus BridgeEdit

This base consists of artillery and MG emplacements.  There is a medical cabinet in the two story building, on the bottom floor, and a supply crate near the Kettencrad/Lynx spawn point in the grey-stone building.

ParkEdit

Located in the eastern part of the city, The Park is blocked off to vehicles by buildings and roadblocks and can be only accessed by a small opening near the German HQ. Its capture radius is in the open, so beware of snipers or soldiers opening fire out of windows, alleyways and buildings.

ChurchEdit

German HeadquartersEdit

This is the Germans main base. It spawns the only vehicles besides the South Base. It spawns a Hanomag, two medium tanks and a light vehicle. Its capture radius is in a small garden surrounded by a fence.
