Welcome to the second and final part of this article. This time we focus more on running an ongoing mod and the challenge of building a successful fan base.
In the first part of this series we focus on some of the internal considerations within a mod team and the setup phase.
This is my first blog entry for Pop Smoke and In Country. It is also the first in an exciting new series that we will be publishing that will provide a unique insight into the inner workings of an effective mod development team.
It has been over a year and a half since our early environmental test and weapon teaser trailer was released and we feel it's time to reveal some specifics about In Country: Vietnam.
Designed in 1933 to supersede the famous Winchester Model 1912 shotgun, the Ithaca Gun Company introduced the M33, which was based off of the pre-existing Remington Model 17. Due to patents on the Remington 17, this particular shotgun would not begin production until 1937 - the name then being changed to the M37. After use in both WWII and Vietnam, the Ithaca M37 is still produced to this day and is favored for its simplistic design and reliability.
