Well, though there are no major news updates about the mod we magnaged to add some vehicles in the last month which filled gaps or are simply nice to have. We put them into the BG42 wiki but for a summary, here is a list:

Type 2 Ka-Mi tank
T-70 Light tank
Sd.Kfz. 124 "Wespe" (old model replaced)
Sd.Kfz. 135 "Marder" 1 (on Lorraine chassis)
Volkswagen Type 166 "Schwimmwagen" (old model replaced)

Daimler Armored Car MK.II (old model replaced)
Canon de 155mm GPF field gun (available also for the US)
Please check the BG42 Wiki for more information and pictures.
Type 3 Chi-Nu tank
Wasn't this already in the mod?
Correct, my fault! It was already integrated in the previous release.
@sargesurfat The T-70 and the Canon de 155mm GPF field gun are also already in the mod.
Chapeau! At least the have never been mentioned in a news update... 😉
One of the new additions who are not mentioned above is that BG 1.8 contains also a complete new army in term of the Free French Forces (FFL) with their own vehicle fleet, weapons and uniforms! The most astonishing is the high level of authenticity thereby. Absolutely fantastic, great job and well done!
I just realised that I haven't logged in or checked the forum for years, though I did keep my tabs on the wiki.
Looking at Sarge's contributions, I found there's also a 21cm Mörser 18, but I don't know if it's integrated in the latest version; I haven't seen in-game pictures of it personally.
