US unit wishlist

Yes, really...

57mm M1 AT - this was the US version of the British 6pnd AT.
The graphics are already in-place (except a bit of re-colouring).

Erik, just a brief diversion, please. We also need U.S. Army commanders of senior rank. We got Axis up the axis but Allies and particularly the U.S. need some love.

The only two U.S. ground commanders who look anywhere near senior are 5 and 7. Some of the others look like lunatics (4 and particularly 9 - imagine him giving a briefing with knife in hand!) and 8 looks like he's shell-shocked and incapable of command.

We are well stocked with pilots and navy commanders (including 19 of whom I am fond at this time :wink: ) but when it comes to getting a briefing from any U.S. ground commander above major, the choices are very limited. No doubt this is because the game has not been about Americans since U.S. Marines and I am okay with that but do we need to wait until Overlord to get any fresh American faces?

I still don't quite understand why this game has multiple classes of every ship except Light Cruisers.

So yeah. Different CL classes.

First you've changed my view on Parker, and now those, too...
...from now on, I'll never be able to look at them without thinking about what you've just said and laughing... :lol: :lol: :lol:

P51H is in already. 57mm M1 AT has good chances ...

I read that "Black Shirts" divisions were created, but MVSN units were most often used on the battlefield as 2 independent battalions (forming legion = 1/2 inf regiment) assigned to particular divisions - in particular armored and motorized (so-called fast divisions)
Since 1 inf unit corresponds to 1 infantry division in real world and 1 armored unit symbolizes 1 armored division on the map, maybe there is no need to include the Fascist Militia in the game.
The Waffen SS formed their own large units (divisions, corps and even army in the last period of war) that operated independently on the battlefield.
Maybe I'm wrong, I'm curious about your opinion ...

You’re wrong, italians create a lot of ccnn indipendent divisions for Etiopia, spanish civil war, Libia and also RSI.

Yes, you're right.
However I was thinking about the Eastern Front now but there are other theaters of war in OoB
Recently I read a lot about the Italian army in Russia 1941-43

I've noticed that one of the US commanders are ready for Liberation DLC (US campaign in North Africa@Europe)
This is Capt. Francis "Gabby" Gabreski, one of the best Thunderbolt's pilot, second on US fighter's aces list on the European TOW (28 destroyed Luftwaffe's aircraft)
He flew in the famous 56th Fighter Group, which was the only one used P-47 aircraft throughout the war

So I suppose that there are created other US commanders who fought in Europe in the commander folder (but I don't know which of them :oops: )
