Mimoyecques is a map featured in the Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII expansion. It depicts a fictional American amphibious and aerial assault on the Fortress of Mimoyecques, a German bunker system which was built to house V-3 heavy gun emplacements.
The Wehrmacht forces begin on the other side of the water and control five capturable flags, which they have to defend.

The southernmost Axis control point and the "theme" of the map. A fortified bunker system which contains the Wasserfall missile launcher, three stationary MG 42 and a Flak 38. Next to the bunkers is a spawn for a Flakpanzer, a Panzer IV and a R75. If this is captured by the Allies, there will be two Shermans and a XA42.
The Allied initial uncapturable base at the northern end of the map, divided from the rest of the battlefield by a sea. It features a hangar, a field hospital, an airstrip, defensive emplacements and several vehicles meant for troop transport and air superiority, including the C-47 (which also acts as a mobile spawn point), four landing craft, a F-85 Goblin and the AW-52.
The western flag on the Axis side of the map, facing the sea. It is a largely ruined village which is easily captured, since it features few vehicle spawns and has a beach where American LCVPs can easily land. It spawns two motorcycles (XA42 or R75), an AA gun (Flak 38 or AA_Allies) and two stationary machine guns (MG 42 or Browning) depending on the faction.
The eastern flag on the Axis side of the map, facing the sea. It has a couple of farm buildings and barns. This base spawns another HO-229 fighter (replaced by a Goblin under Allied control), a Flakpanzer (or a Sherman under the Allies), a motorcycle, an AA gun, and two machine guns.
Located at the northwest of the V3 Complex, this control point features a hangar containing a HO-229 (or Goblin), a stationary machine gun, two PAK 40 anti-tank guns and some flak guns (replaced by AA_Allies under Allied control).

The general flag and vehicle layout is the same. The positions of aircraft at the Allied Base have been changed slightly, but the number and types remain the same. The V3 Complex is no longer a control point, and the Axis Airfield is now uncapturable.
The Allies must destroy three objectives around the central bunker of the V3 Complex:
- V3 Air Shaft 1 to the south,
- V3 Air Shaft 2 to the east,
- V3 Air Shaft 3 to the west.
The V3 Air Shafts are located on top of the walls of the trench that surround the central bunker. Each Air Shaft can take 550 points of damage.

It is possible that the objectives were initially intended to involve Defguns. This is evident by the files for the V3 Air Shaft being named
Mimoyecques_Cannon and a commented-out section in its
Geometries.con file calling for the model
Defgun_turret_m1 to be used.
