I am just curious about the trees
axis:
1. Tank IV and Tiger unlock before 88? oO shouldnt the tiger not come after the 88 as the axis put them into a tank after they saw their performance in combat?
2. In the ower left side is it blitzkrieg ability and then Airstrike unlock? its cool if so as this is then real Blitzkrieg:D
3. The inf unlocks arround the HT are kind or stortmooper or?

allis:

1.Churchill-Airstikre-25 pounder? and then priest in a another subtree?oO
2. what about tankbusters or shermans and M3 Lee/Grant which played a major role in north africa? Or matilda III (Queen of the desert:D)?

I guess that sadly there are no models available for the Matilda neither the Grant... :(

Some units exist like the "Grant" but can't be used without permission because they are MoW copyrighted models, when i was saying "new" meant "new" for bk platform, not new as "model" if you check my moddb page all credits and thanks are in good place next to the models, of course im using existing models with the agreement of the people who created them, im not a 3D artist, unfortunatelly very few are still active for COH1, but i can tell one thing Afrika 43 is unique in a lot of ways and created by me and my co-coder, this whole thing will be very new for sure, all units are new (Skins/arts/models/icons etc...) and never been seen elsewhere ;) with the possibility to Launch and play Blitzkrieg Mod with the D-Day historical add-on or to start with Afrika 43, a very cool thing indeed.

More news soon.

I read the units book and I fear that Brits have less units which are also weaker than German counterparts. I really hope this add-on won't be unbalanced or pro-axis.

This add-on will NOT be pro axis, and the balance can't be showned on a unit book ;) you will play it and you'll see.

I really hope so. I have a question.
THE NEXT DOWNLOAD WILL BE THE INSTALLER OF THE NEW "D-DAY JUNE 1944" and "AFRIKA 43" ADD-ON FOR BLITZKRIEG MOD, THE OLD D-DAY JUNE 1944 ADD-ON FILE IS NOW NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
Does that mean that it won't be possible to play Afrika without D-Day? Do I have to install both? I would like to have only Afrika, because I am used to current look of units ;).

The Afrika add on also is already going to include different look of icons exactly in the same method as the D-Day one btw! Not only new unit skins I mean...

It says that you can choose Bk (original) or bk with the D-Day June 1944 add-on or Afrika 43 with the new installer & Launcher, if you want to play only the original bk & Afrika 43 you can but you will need to install the historical add-on system. (installer + launcher)

Kamerades!
"D-Day June 1944" hist.addon is excellent, skins/camo and ranks are best! Thanks for efforts! :!:
But there are some models are required camoflage now:
1. PE Nashorn is simple grey:
Image
2. WH Stuh.42 didn`t have camo:
Image
3. If you "call" random Pz.IVH/Stug.IV "late"/StuG.IIIG with inf.squad (850MP), that "calling" StuG.IIIG is without camo:
Image
4. ... although StuG.IIIG, which is builded in factory, has good camo:
Image
5. Sdkfz.251/10 with 37-mm Pak36 has camo, but why cannon is simply grey?
Image

Inf.units are very detailed, I like to contemplate them on "pause" or at the end of battle :shock: :)
But I have some suggestion about skins of infantry :arrow:
6. Why PE MG42 crewmans are such as WH (Lehr) MG42 crewmans (and Lehr`s icon in miniwindow of squad) ? Maybe PE MG42 crewmans should be such as PE panzergrenadiers (on photo №7) (360MP):
Image
7. PE panzergrenadiers (360MP) have proper emblems...
Image
8. ... but PE heavy infantry (435MP) has wrong "mirror" emblems:
Image
9. WH stormtroopers have a simple green helmets on heads:
Image
10. ...but maybe all or some units in stormtrooper squad should give camo helmet, such as helmets of Sdkfz.234/3 crewmans:
Image
11. About WH sniper:
Image
he has only camo cape, in my opinion, he must have camo helmet (such as a crewmans of Sdkfz. 234/3 - photo №10) with foliage (such as a PE sniper or a squardleader of PE heavy infantry - photo №8) and camo trousers (such as a squardleader of WH stormtroopers - photo №9).

I hope, that my argumentation is understandably and reasonably and possible to carry out :geek: ;) I wish Bk-MOD and Hist.addon`s team good luck and strength health! 8-)

Mirrored insignias is normal, its the coh engine and system, you can't do anything about it.

Hi XAHTEP39

look at picture 5, the halftrack. There is a true historical mistake. Can you find it ?

I think that the grey is really fine with Nashorn and Stugs... Or u want everything to be colored in camo skins??? :P Also, who cares about what color should the cannon be covered in!!! Again; grey is just fine there as it was even the factory skin of several German machines being remained without any painting I guess..

However that if there is something that should be really done, it would be with the JP then as I do believe! ^^
Would be looking much better with this I swear:-

Grey color is a mistake color for factory german vehicle; The factory color is "dunkelgelb" color in 1943 and later. Grey factory color is before 1943. :ugeek:
And yes, if almost all vehicles in "Hist.addon D-Day 1944" have camo skins, thats why some vehicles didn`t have camo, and moreover have not correct factory skin? :?:

Yes, JagdPanther with zimmerit is cool ;)

BTW, it's worth to mention that 'originally' there is a bug with the HQ PE PanzerGrenadiers (360MP) showing no feet.. but this is fixed as they have visible feet by using this add on! ;)

Some gamers like game or riddle.

Upper front corner. the haltrack insignia is a woden cross on a circle that strongly suggest it a 11 th SS pzgr div Nordland vehicle. It had never fought in the western front.
