I like the idea of the assault pioneers with boats, and the icons are awesome.

Two suggestions that might help with the movement aspect.
If you only want to assault across rivers, why not give the assault pioneers bridge engineer move and attribute? They can then travel to the river in the truck or halftrack jump into the river and attack from there without river penalty. If you make a switch between ground and assault engineer, you get the truck in normal operation and when attacking across water you get the assault boat image . The primary limitation there would be that unless you can adjust the properties that allow the unit to act as a bridge, other troops could cross the river using your assault engineer boats. While this might be possible for infantry without trucks, it would be unrealistic for heavy vehicles. That would mean you either want the block the ability for all others to cross this unit or restrict it so that no vehicles can enter (as with high mountains).

Earlier this year there was a Schwimmpanzer mod - would this get round the water/land movement issue?

My Schwimmpanzer is designed for crossing actual seas, and I haven't got back to it for rivers and making it be able to cross from water to land without any ports. Once WWI Gold is done I might get back to it.

Were any of these icons available as a group to download? Has he left the forum?
Old Timer Panzer General fan. Maybe a Volksturm soldier now. Did they let Volksturm drive Panzers?

The Schwimmpanzer mod can still be downloaded - its thread has just fallen to about page 4 or 5 on the forum now. If you want to make your own unit stats, just copy the icons out of the mod folder.

BTW, guille1434 made the icons, I just compiled them into a mod and came up with the original idea!

Is there a download file available for these icons. I have Guille1434's stuff. I don't remember these icons being in it. If there is a link for download, please let me know. Thanks.

In Addition to the latest new stuff for the russion front I made two reskins of bebro's beautiful Tu-2 with some light underneath and panel lines:

There was an interesting plane in Guille's thread and unit pack: The Fw-189 reconnaissance plane.

Could be useful with some different camo scemes, so it's nearly invisible :D

Hi Asuser. Some time ago you made some great Stug III G units and they were all facing the left side. Would it be possible for you to post both directions faced by the Stug III G's you made with the correct left and right side details? I'd love to work on these Stugs for variety. Lots of possiblities there. Thanks. :)

Beautiful work auser!.
Give for granted I will include some of them into the Soviet Storm :D . I will try to add them by the next release, which will come not so early.... right now I am decompressing a little bit from the last months work on v1.4 :)
Thanks a lot for such a nice work.

PS: Keep coming more Soviet air units :)

Best regards.
Akkula.

Hi Flak,

first of all I dig out the two icon/mask packs which guille and I made sometime ago:
StuG_IIIG (Guille) Base Icon and Mask.rar
(131.68 KiB) Downloaded 204 times
StuG_IIIG (Anders) Base Icon and Mask.rar
(145.41 KiB) Downloaded 201 times
The special versions follows next...

Very interesting and relativly unknown plane:
Here comes some new build bombers Yer-2. Hopefully Akkula could also use it for the next update of "Soviet Storm" and change the existing variants.

Thanks a lot Asuser!, that is very very beautiful Yer-2 :D . Much better than mine, I will add it to the mod ASAP.
Thanks a lot for your help, and of course, any other Soviet/German creation of yours is welcome.

PS: Could you make a winter version of the Yer-2? 8)
