Hello Squaddies! 

The v3.4 update will focus on small bug fixes and gameplay improvements on many fronts, including soldier kits, weapons, turrets, vehicles and buildings among others. We also persevere in our efforts of optimizations to the game, going over its various maps once again. Finally, the addition of the map Harju will add a war theater in Sweden for you all to experience again or anew!
