Characteristics


The Australian Army shares a few similarities with their United States Army and Marine counterparts, but are mostly made up of their own unique cosmetics and gear. Their standard issued uniforms by default are the jungle greens. Their headgear consisted of bush hats or otherwise known as the “giggle hat”, similar to that of their boonie hats. Some M1 helmets that the United States wear are also worn by the Australian Army, both with and without a camouflage cover. All soldiers of the Australian Army can also be seen wearing buttpacks along with a canteen bottles.

Similar to the factions of the United States as well, there are a variety of heads, featuring seven white heads and one depiction of the native Australians. When choosing a white or native Australian head, the hairstyles and headgear changes to adjust to the style of the current head.The Australians of course have their own unique voices and accents compared to their other Southern allies, also providing a variety of voices.

Trivia


  • The military forces in the game of the ANZAC faction are actually the Australian army, as the New Zealand forces are limited to artillery roles.
  • This faction is the first free and downloadable content update in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.
  • One of the headgear cosmetics for the Pilot features the New Zealander kiwi, implying some Pilots in-game are New Zealanders.
  • There is a lack of documentation of Australian snipers during the Vietnam War as there were no actual sniper training programs within the Australian military at the time. Another questionable thing are the XM21s that are issued to the Australians in the game, seeing that in such maps like Long Tan take place in 1966, three years before the issue and the design of the weapon.
