Forward to Glory is one of SPARTAN 119's fan-proposed DLC for Battlefield 1, based on the Balkan Front of the First World War. The DLC is named for a quote by Dragutin Gavrilović, a Serbian officer who led a last stand against German and Austro-Hungarian attackers at the confluence of the Danube and Sava Rivers during the 1915 Seige of Belgrade.


The Balkan states are literally central to the reason the First World War began, and yet, the battles in Balkans are often overshadowed by the fighting on the Western Front. The DLC Forward to Glory takes you to a theater of war every bit as brutal as the West. Make a last stand alongside the Serbian army in Belgrade, Fight alongside or against the Bulgarians in the bloody Battle of Doiran, and join the Greek Army as they break neutrality to aid the Allied war effort.

  • Armament: 47mm cannon (driver), co-axial machine gun (driver), variable secondary armament (gunner).
  • Variants: Infantry Support (rear machine gun), Flamethrower (rear Wex flamethrower), Tank Hunter (T-Gewehr)

The Burstyn-Motorgeschütz was a proposed armored fighting vehicle, similar to what would become known as a “tank”. The vehicle designed by Austro-Hungarian engineer Gunther Burstyn in 1911, but never constructed. The Motorgeschutz carried a 47mm main gun in a revolving turret and two machine guns, with up to 11mm of armor. The tank was designed to have a top speed of 28 kilometers per hour, far faster than any WWI tank. Had the Austro-Hungarians or the Germans, who Burstyn also pitched the design to, adopted the Motorgeschutz, the course of the First World War, and the 20th century could have been very different. In-game, the Motorgeschutze is an alternative to the FT light tank, with a slightly slower speed (for balance reasons, in spite of it's real-life faster speed) and a crew of two, with a driver/main gunner operating the forward turret, with can traverse about 250 degrees, and a second gunner manning the rear turret. Note that, except for the machine gun, the variable secondary armament is fictionalized and does not reflect actual designs, but rather possible adaptations of the rear turret, had the vehicle actually been built.
