BF2: Armored Fury Update

The Battlefield 2 Website has screenshots from the upcoming Armored Fury booster pack for DICE's military shooter, along with some details on the pack and the upcoming version 1.3 patch for BF2. The further announcement mentioned in this story has also rolled in, promising the add-on the spring for a $9.99 price tag, and plans for a June release of Battlefield 2: Deluxe Edition, to include the original Battlefield 2, the Special Forces expansion, and the upcoming co-op friendly patch 1.3. Here's word:

Attention Soldiers!

Later today we will announce the Battlefield 2: Armored Fury™ booster pack for Battlefield 2™ which brings all-out mechanized battles to US soil for the first time. Maps set in the US have been requested by the community for quite some time, and we are pleased to deliver three that set the stage for huge armored warfare battles.

3 NEW MAPS

    • Operation Midnight Sun: The conflict spreads near the Pacific Ocean in a key battle for the Alaskan port of Valdez, where Chinese forces are attempting to secure much-needed fuel from the pipeline.
    • Operation Harvest: The MEC army begins their march East towards the U.S. Capital, and American forces must stall the advance long enough for reinforcements to arrive.
    • Operation Road Rage: The MEC forces have infiltrated deep into the USA, and are using the highways to move quickly towards key industrial sites that are dangerously near civilian areas.

To balance the wide-open tank battles with aerial firepower, six new vehicles will be introduced, including 3 scout helos such as the MD 530 ?Little Bird?, and 3 ground attack aircraft like the A10 Warthog.

In addition, patch 1.3 is on the way, and with it comes single player co-op support, so you can grab a friend and tackle the bots as a team. More details to follow, so stay frosty!

I guess the impression I got was that you had bf1942, bf2, set in 2042, and the next game was bf2142. The tech level in BF2 for the most part seems appropriate. Either way, the A-10 IS out of service now.
