For historical information, Wikipedia has an article on Operation Herkules.

Operation Herkules is a fictive map set around the island of Malta. It is fought between United Kingdom and Germany.


There are seven control points on this map, all of which are under British control.

Whichever side holds five or more control points will incur a ticket bleed to the other side.

The Germans can spawn in the airbase to the north-east or as paratroopers on the island. The British have a number of aircraft, tanks, and light vehicles for local defense.

In Conquest mode the Germans also have a fleet comprised of Typ VII C submarine, Schnellboot, and Minensuchboot Typ 40. The British have a Wickes-class destroyer and several Vosper MTB to offset this threat. The naval elements are absent in Co-op mode.
