At long last I’m finally posting D-days colossal unit list, which has been revised on nearly a weekly basis for many months. It’s still missing a few things & is likely to have changes here & there. Any suggestions are welcome to fill in the blanks but if are you going to suggest a change to a position already taken then you must give a good reason as to why I should do so.

You can find it here & if your reading this from the site there is also a link to it on left hand menu.

I also use it as a checklist so I can easily see what I have done & what there is left to do, it should give you an idea of D-days current status. I update it as I’m working & you’re likely to see finished units listed before I post any pics etc. so keep an eye on it & you’ll see what’s coming in the next update(s) :mellow:

gasp :mellow:
gonna take a while going through that, looks really good so far though, the variety in units is impressive.

no more fireflies for the brits I see?

why not have the Véhicule de ravitaillement de cavalerie Bernard TT4 as a french repair vehicle instead of the lorraine from 42 onwards. faster and probably as well if not better protected (can't find much info)

Tsk Tsk Tsk!

According to both en.wikipedia.org and www.militaryfactory.com, there never was an RPG-1.

In fact, Wikipedia states that the RPG-2 was based of the Panzerfaust.



Other than that, it is looking good. I am looking foreward to this mod!
(But not the hour or so it will take me to download it...)

@ wilmet: Thx I’ll look into it, if I can find more info I will use it ;)

@ Gaffel: Sorry but you gona have to do better then that :p

@ MCV: The RPG-1 was a near perfect copy of the Panzerfaust & the RPG-2 is a Russian upgrade of it. The Wikipedia page that you linked too even says that :mellow:

Huge project :thumbsupsmiley:
will the recon planes be able to drop some bomb as well? at least for P-38 which can release more bombs than a attacker and Po-2 "CheckingCharly"?
And I've seen some Japanese Artilery for -1940, but have to check their name...

So will there only be the four infantry each side?
And no polish TK.3? :O Ok, probably completely unnecessary, but I'd be willing to make it for you :p

:thumbsupsmiley:

I may not know how to count, but those are way more than 200 units. How will you make them all work?

D-day is split into 5 different time frames that are laid out in the unit list in 5 columns. You can only use the units in one of the time frames at anyone time which when added together doesn’t exceed 200. Using this system tho means that I can add a total of 1,000 units if I want to.

What about Hungary :|

I counted the units that were in light color (vxl/shp not finished) and its about 306...... :D Never counted the same unit twice though.............................That's mean that the mod probably will take another 4 years or so.......... :( I HOPE Mig will release the mod much earlier than that.. :lol: ..........hoping its less than 1 year :p

BTW nice job on your unit list... :thumbsupsmiley:

Isn't it the M1 Garand, not 'Grand'?

Why do the headlamp covers look so very very phallic?

:cool: ...just, wow. I noticed some factions are alot closer to completion than others, so i was wondering if you would release a version with some of the factions and then a follow up version after the others are finished?

for 1935-1940 japanese artillerys, you can try:
Type38 (75mm,ww1 standard, if I'm not wrong). not to replace the "105mm Type 92+ Type 98 Shi-Ke" in the list, but simplly add some fire power that can be carryed by horses and men or eles Jap will be too weak?
But I didn't found a decent Type38 pic, I just know it was equiped a lot.
tho Japs have some new designs later as in your list, but the fact is they were never able to equip them, the backbone is always the old stuff...so do you have any ideas about a balance between the historical IJA equipment and the ideal equipment in D-Day list?
Sure totally historical will be unfair for Jap-side-players, but it's just not that feeling with all ideal equipments :cool: ...
Anyway, game is game, and you've done a good game :cool:

BTW: some tips that may be interesting to who may not know this: Senden means "lightning", then look it's frame seems the design of Ki-98 is mostly inspired by P-38 the "real" Lightning :cool:

(sorry didn't see the blank of Jap 1935 Artillery is for mobile ones)
