unit_1319 is 76mm_m1939_Germany, so it's correct. The Soviet one is named: 76.2mm M1939

The correct name should be 7.62cm FK 297(r) and the Soviet Truck is strange.

So if we find errors, the bug are in the game (units.csv).
But this does not explain the bug with the unknown faction waffensskriegsmarine only with this units :

Actually this one is on me. After viewing the the game data in your post it seems that the factions list has inconsistent list separators. It should be either comma + space or just comma not both. I need to update the game data parser. Thanks for reporting, I'll update this as soon as I have some spare time.

Re the Kriegsmarine engineers.
I guess the devs needed some Kriegsmarine land unit for the KM campaign and selected the engineers as the best existing one.
They could of course have provided some real Flottenstam/Marine unit...

Congrats but remember there will be some changes in units statistics with new DLC.
(i.e. Churchill AVRE and Crocodile complementing statistics)

Yes, I will need to update the game data files which also includes adding the new terrain type after the DLC is out.

Very good idea to have the original images of the game not modified :D
It would still be better to have it in the game in a section Library as in PanzerCorps.
Sometimes in travel, I still have no good reception for internet.

This tool will actually work offline after the page is fully loaded. There are some restrictions: you can't click on links and you will not get unit images.

Would not it be possible to make an independent mini-program ?
With PureBasic for example whom I know, it would be not too difficult I think ?
