Battlefield 1 Apocalypse: 10 Potential Vehicles for the New DLC


I expect to see some intense trench warfare
in Battlefield 1’s final DLC – Apocalypse – but I also expect to see some new vehicles
in combat. There are a few remaining vehicles that could
be added to the game, either as Behemoths, or your run of the mill armored vehicles. Here is my short list, along with the reasons
they’d fit well in Battlefield 1. If your favorite vehicle isn’t in my top
10 – I chose those that I think would offer new experiences to players. First, we’ll start with more standard vehicles. For armored cars, I think the Italian Lancia
Ansaldo 1Z is a great option if DICE is looking to add more variety to available armored cars. The design features a unique “double turret
design,” with one on top of the other. It wasn’t the most practical design in reality,
but for Battlefield 1, it would offer some unique gameplay. Both the driver and a gunner would have a
360 degree traverse, making it effective against infantry in all directions. There are also a number of firing ports on
the side for passengers. The rails on the front of the vehicle were
designed to cut barbed wire. The armored car could reach speeds upwards
of 60 kilometers per hour, or just under 40 miles per hour. I strongly suspect we’ll see new Italian
maps in the upcoming Apocalypse DLC – and the Lancia Ansaldo 1Z and the later model
1ZM with a single turret, saw action during the Battle of Caporetto. American troops also trained with these vehicles. We haven’t seen the addition of a new light
tank in any of the Battlefield 1 DLC to date, and there are a couple that could fill that
role nicely. The British Tank Medium Mark A, nicknamed
the “whippet,” could offer some variety to the class. Generally armed with four machine guns in
all directions, the turretless Whippet was also one of the fastest tanks of World War
I, boasting a blistering top speed of 14 kilometers per hour, or just over 8 miles per hour. A whippet actually fought a mammoth German
A7V in 1918 during the world’s second tank battle. Unfortunately, the whippet was destroyed in
combat. If DICE wanted to add a variant with more
than just machine guns, Red Russian forces equipped a captured Whippet with a 37mm main
gun during the civil war. Another prototype with an uprated engine and
suspension could reach speeds of 48 kilometers per hour, or 30 miles per hour, so developers
have a couple ways to make the vehicle stand out from the Renault FT. Another option for a new light tank could
be the German Leichter Kampfwagen II. This prototype design is similar to the aforementioned
Whippet, and plans called for a 37mm gun and machine gun located in a fixed superstructure. It had a top speed of about 15 kilometers
per hour, or 9 miles per hour. It was incomplete by the end of the war. It actually wouldn’t surprise me if DICE
reached a bit further into the post-war period to bring an LK II-derived design into Battlefield
1. The Stridsvagn M21 featured a 360 degree turret
armed with a machine gun. Later variants also featured external lighting
– which DICE has used on other vehicles like the Saint Chamond and Putilov Garford
as a spotting mechanic. Most importantly – the Stridsvagn was used
by Sweden, and DICE would have easy access to examples for modeling purposes. If developers wanted to push the prototype
envelope even further, DICE could add the Sturmpanzerwagen Oberschlesien prototype. This tank design reportedly featured a 37
or 57mm gun located in a central turret and two machine guns mounted at the front and
back. Though lightly armored, this tank would fit
quite well into the tank meta of Battlefield 1, with a unique three-seat set-up and a top
speed of 16 kilometers per hour, or about 10 miles per hour. The tank was still being built at the end
of World War I. If DICE want to stick to tanks commonly deployed
in World War I, the Schneider CA is a prime candidate. The tank featured a 75mm gun located on the
right side of the tank, and machine guns on either side. The placement of the main armament is unique
to the other tanks in Battlefield 1, and would make the tank a unique challenge. The Schneider CA’s top speed was only about
8 kilometers per hour, or 5 miles per hour. Interestingly, the tank made up part of the
first Italian tank regiment – until it was replaced with the FIAT 2000. Coincidentally, the FIAT 2000 is one of my
choices for a new Behemoth in Battlefield 1. The massive vehicle features six machine guns,
and a 65mm cannon in a top-mounted turret. A true behemoth, the FIAT 2000 tipped the
scales at 40 tons. Not surprisingly, its top speed was limited
to 7 kilometers per hour, or 4.3 miles per hour. Construction of the tank was completed just
after the close of World War I, but it did see action in Libya. Another top choice for a new Battlefield 1
behemoth is the German Grosskampfwagen, or K-Wagen. Weighing 120 tons, the K-Wagen was to feature
four 77mm fortress guns and seven machine guns. Designed as a true landship, the K-Wagen might
actually be too overpowered to put in Battlefield 1, even as a behemoth. Surprisingly, Germany came close to completing
the terrifying tank, with two of them nearly assembled at the armistice. DICE hasn’t added a new behemoth since the
Char 2C tank, included with Battlefield 1’s first DLC, They Shall Not Pass. So perhaps we’ll see one of these monsters
in Apocalypse. For airplanes, I don’t see DICE adding another
massive bomber like the Ilya Murometz in the DLC, but there is space for some unique smaller
aircraft. Specifically, developers could add the Voisin
Type 5 biplane. It’d be the first “pusher” aircraft
in Battlefield 1, with the engine located behind the pilot and gunner. Capable of carrying smaller munitions, the
bomber also featured a front gunner position, which could be equipped with a machine gun,
or a 37mm cannon for ground attack. The design has some inherent weaknesses, such
as the lack of any rear defenses, but the flexibility of a traversable 37mm gun makes
it intriguing from a gameplay perspective. DICE could also explore some of the first
metal aircraft designs with Apocalypse. The Junkers CL1 was a late-war ground-attack
airplane with mostly metal construction. It featured two forward-firing machine guns,
a complement of ground munitions, and a rear gunner position. The CL1 would also be Battlefield 1’s first
monoplane, offering improved visibility to pilots. Again, none of these vehicles are confirmed
for Apocalypse – this is mere speculation. That being said, which of these would you
like to see added to Battlefield 1? Are there some vehicles I didn’t mention
that you’d like to see? Tell me in the comments.

  1. This is interesting. Just heard a few car company names in there. Never knew they’ve been around in history.

  2. What do you think of rumors that BF2018 will be a WW2 game?! 😛
    K-Wagen would be awesome or Siemens-Schuckert Bomber, one of them as Behemoth. Come on DICE!

  3. Threre is no tank faction like previous bf titles for example : German heavy = A7V , light = LK II…British heavy = Mark iv , light = medium A ( whippet)…France heavy = saint chamond , light = FT17 Renault….etc

  4. I think it would be cool if they added a scout aircraft. It would be something lightly armed with only a support gunner to protect it, but it would have improved maneuverability. I could picture it with something like the spotlight to identify enemies, while still being easily contested due to its low armament, and lower health than most planes. Just a random thought though. Anyways, love the video!

  5. Man I didnt even knew how many tanks they made at that time!!!!! Thank gor the war was over before those massive tanks were made 😣😣

  6. I’d love to see little Wiley the prototype tank. They also used portable shields that rolled that would be neat- also I think if they use the barbed wire to its accurate extent then we could use the grappling hook being drug behind to remove large portions. They would use two and make a. Shape when they separate. Removing lots of wire.

  7. In the case that there are more Italian maps, the Austro-Hungarians supposedly had a design that actually predated the war. It was called the Burstyn tank, but none were built. It would also fit as a light tank, with a turret and a fairly small size.

  8. Well since it is something of a habit for me to make a suggestion, how about the Marx IX as an APC? They even tested an amphibious version of it.

    Also would you be doing another list for possible elite kits? I can think of a few possibilities.

  9. The Fiat 2000 being a behemoth would be a waste of a great opportunity,for being the first Italian tank and a new vehicle that you could spawn at any time and use it,unlike the behemoths.And DICE has only added a behemoth on the first dlc and they've never tried that again.Behemoths arent very liked by the community and the Char 2C was just an "experiment".Great work btw,love your vids♡

  10. In battlefield 1 I would like to see the worlds first tank little willie and they could add different land battleship classes like mark1 mark2 mark4 male female

  11. I think the Ford 3 ton should be added into the apocalypse DLC as ether a light tank or the role if a armored car but slower and maybe much more powerful than the other armored cars

  12. I love the Lancia 1z. It looks awesome and that double turret could be so much fun. Great video with tons of knowledge. Learned a few things as usual. Thank you FlakFire.

  13. I need the L.K. II. I love it so much. Saw one in real life and it was so awesome.

    But I wouldn't put the Fiat 2000 in as a Behemoth but as a normal tank

    Also, K-Wagen is pure dream. The mighty Land Battleship of the Kaiser 😀 I love the K-Wagen even more than the L.K. II 😀

  14. I just got the game with the dlc (the revolution package). Man so much content, so overwhelming. Pretty fun so far, though the campaign I have ignored so far

  15. am i the only one ready to talk about Sherman variance and maybe panzer iv and panzer iii variants for Battlefield 2018

  16. I hope the whippet gets added in the new dlc, as it would be a amazing idea. I don't know about the German one though, as dice wants to keep it ww2, next you will be saying 'dice could push a little bit later in history and add the AMX 40 for the French and the Panzer I for the Germans' I also think they will add a Zeppelin Stakken too.

  17. I want a new plane….something small and fast made for infantry….drops gas and molotovs and such instead of flares

  18. I would like to see the Nieuport 17, as it was used primarily as a fighter aircraft, as well as the Curtiss C-1 Canada, considering it was made in 1915 and served as a bomber.

  19. I think they could add a variation of the motorcycle and side car that has a lmg (preferably the mg parabelum) on the side car but to balance it; the lmg would overheat bit faster than the lmg the support class utilizes. Resulting in the player in the side car to use short bursts to prevent overheating. Another way to implement this is to have the Germans/Austro-Hungarian/Ottomans motorcycle feature the mg parabelum variant, while the American/British/French/Italian motorcycle could feature another variant with the new Browning Lmg with a smaller box mag and a different barrel; or a Lewis gun mounted on the side car.

  20. #BF1NeedsFord3TonTank! this is a post of mine in the bf1 forums, check it out for more ideas of how to implement this tank in bf1. I think the m1918 tank would add very interesting gameplay simply because of its size and speed. Its less than 6ft tall and wide, imagine the spaces it could get into!!!

  21. Looks like we're getting fuck all in the way of vehicles and hardly using any of the tanks we already have. How dissapointing😧 this game started good but it's been all downhill since.

  22. I would like to see the metal plane in the new DLC, and to balance it out dice can make it so flak AA guns do 150'/, more damage but can not be damaged by ground lmgs (the ones infantry use) however other planes can still damage it. And to balance out the AA guns damage boost dice can give the plane more health.

    But that's just an idea

  23. Mobile, pre aligned air rockets, mounted on planes in game but were originally used as anti-air and ground to ground artilery sometimes mounted on trucks but usually sing placed

  24. Perhaps the US Steam Tank, or the 1/18 Scale Little Willie, or the Medium MK-C Hornet or the Medium MK-B
