Didn't plan for those. But I also thought there have been made several already by someone? At least I thought I saw some in a thread somewhere here...

I think it was by someone who doesn't allow people to use his work. :roll:

I was working on a field wagon, but can't seem to get it come out satisfactory.
But if you want, you can use my current WIP as an interrim graphic until bebro makes a better one. :wink:

Just downloaded the Zis5 and M3, Bebro. They look great. I hope you will do more units. Thanks.

Hey bebro, if you actually want to grant me a unit request, here goes.
I'll give you two alternatives and you can pick which one you want to do (and when and if at all, I guess :wink:).

Option 1: The german in-development APC "Kätzchen". You can read up on it here.

Option 2: The british AEC armoured car. Any variant will do. See wikipedia for some info.

Whatever you pick, maybe there's some hope that you'll still do the other some day. :P

Hope these aren't too exotic/overwhelming.

I think I'll make the AEC, always liked it in AG :)

I have to model it first so it may take a bit longer, but I'd say can be done within two weeks.

Little progress update:

I hope to get the Brummbär out on the weekend plus maybe one or two other units. Since the DLCs will add more and more units over time I'll focus for the next time (aside from working on that AEC and my USMC campaign) on doing some more units for minor nations that - I assume - will probably not see additions anytime soon to avoid wasting time for something that gets added anyway.

Hope people find that useful :)

Let me compile a wishlist if you don't know which ones to do!



J/K!

All units are welcomed by open arms. Thanks for making them :)

Just as a general note, I'm not against unit requests, but otoh I can't promise that I'll do everything people have in mind. The requests that have the best chances are those for which I own 3d models already, or at least where I can easily modify one I have (for example I had no Brummbär, but since it's based on a Pz IV which I have it can be done more easily than something that would need to be modeled from scratch like the AEC).

Also I prefer to focus on land vehicles and planes first, and esp. on those which were actually in use (means prototype-only has lower priority for me).

I was only kidding but we all need a portion of humor from time to time thou.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to start a (sticky) thread where everybody can post a wishlist. Now i should wink VPaulus ;).

You start it and I'll make it sticky. But I'm afraid that will be a large list.

Sure :) I just thought some notes would be better in case people are wondering whether I take more requests or not :wink:

That's the one I'm looking for. Awesome firepower! Needed for lots of strong defensive positions. Manufactured by Alkett, the same factory who made the Jagdpanzer IV 70 (A) which is ALSO not in the game, yet! Very similar super structure, virtually identical bottom PzIV hull and wheels.

Is this icon ready to download from Image Shack?

Unit ID 68 is the Jagdpanzer IV 70.

Yes, indeed, but that is the VOMAG version. The Alkett version was different with a boxier superstructure, not a common AFV, not many made (278) but plenty Bad A**. They even planned to put an L-71 88mm into it. The Alkett version was so heavily armored they had to put solid steel bogies into the running gear because it destroyed the rubber tired versions very very quickly. I think the only remaining example is the one in the French Tank museum, but there may also be one in Russia, I have forgotten. Been a while.

You'll notice quite a different profile once you get above the hull.
