I don't want to be anal, but looking at the german pic there are a few things that stand out.

A grey FAMO is in the works :p the Pzkfw IV has messy normals & will be fixed at some point, as for the Katz that’s just because of the way it's shaped really.

Japan looks like it will be tough to play

Japan isn’t the most formidable side when it comes to ground forces but it can still hold it’s own, it’s main strength are in it’s airforce & navy tho.

As for Italy they actually have the worst ground units of all seven sides, their post-war units are the equivalent of mid war German tech etc. they will be the most hard to play as, the only advantage being that their stuff is dirt cheap.

Errrr wtf? Some of the Italian war equipment was better than Russian and American Technology, but this is your mod.

It's a bit vague saying just "some of their stuff" was better :cool: every side had at one point something that was "better" than what their enemies had.

For the italians, their ground units really weren't that great, their tanks and tanketes were pretty crap (what they called heavy tanks were just about what other nations would call medium for example). I think their trucks and armoured cars were decent (got the job done but nothing extraordinary), but their best stuff were the "semovente" SPGs: IIRC they did some real damage to allied tanks in North Africa with them.

I think it's the italian's airforce and navy that were their best assets, but this is the ground unit thread :)

The Italian Airforce was pretty petite.

The guns on the semovente's where real killers but then they where very under armoured & some times the crew had no protection what so ever :/

Will you also make a version of the Sd.Kfz 9 in the pre- and early-war colours (grey)? Cause that still needs to be done, otherwise it would stick out (it's the only unit in the three shades camo). Basically it's just a remap, so a master like you has that done in, what, like a half hour? :wacko:

You can always use my half-track for the Japanese side, just remember to recolor it to a proper color theme ;)

It's meant to have gaps, it's uses a metal frame & not a rail or tubes to launch the rockets like the others.

The T28/95 is a secret/bonus unit & is only available in certain game modes, the units here are the standard units available in most game modes (look at the unit list on the site for more information).

Yer the red stuff is text saying Red Ball Express, didn't think anyone would know that :crazed:

The second line are supply vehicles & the forth are transports, they are laid out in the same way as the unit list.

I've updated the German montage with a complete set of units.

BTW if any one was wondering row five are late game upgrades of the standard transport units.

Even if its a bit late..

There's something annoying me about the British transport(land transport).

The thing is that the texture of the camo material.Looks like some sort of dark metal to me :p

I think that its pretty easy to fix,right Mig?

Great job, but i've never seen German armor with red camo....I really think you should use green/brown/yellow/orange colors instead.
