One thing that is sorely needed for both ETO and PTO are some ship models from that period. When Magnitude releases its Corsair and Essex class carrier, it is going to look pretty funky sailing around all by itself, or with modern day DD's and CA's with their weapons on hold.

More would always be nice, but if you consider that a proper WWII PTO would stretch the asset pack quite far, It's a reasonable question to ask about what the minimum to make it work would be. I don't think that more than one type of armored vehicle would be needed...
in fact, the japanese deploy tanks to counter marine landings as peleliu, iwo jima, etc.

Type 95 on Guam for example.

The problem has the lack of infantry (need added japanese and marines), towed artillery, mortar and others on WW2 assets packs.

The I-16 also has a record of fighting AM6 Zero in mainland China.

There has always been rumours about the new map coming in a WWII flavour and ED were not willing to answer any questions about Marianas and WWII, so it is safe to say, that they are at least investigating the possibility.

I don't doubt that they used tanks, i'm just questioning if they were really needed in DCS to set up a basic, yet believable PTO scenario. Ships, Infantry and some utility would be more important and from those maybe some units could even be retextured units from Normandy...

With WWII Marianas confirmed by Nick Grey, this is getting even more relevant.

I'd be very dissapointed, if we wouldn't get a minimal unit set at least. Of course, i'd like to see a full set with whole fleets and many aircraft in the long term, but for release i'd hope for a handful of units at least, to enable simple dogfights and basic ground pounding: One japanese AI aircraft, japanese infantry and utility vehicles, AAA, maybe a destroyer or submarine, a generic cargo ship and some simple retextures of US army to Us marines assets.

Christmas came for me January 13th I wonder how the assets will work though? Made by mag 3 and included with F-4u? Added to asset back? A new asset pack? Maybe included with the map?

i think it would be hard to justify another asset pack. but let's not start another wild speculation thread, before we get any solid info from ED.
i just hope, we will get something with the map. even if it is just the bare minimun...

I really don't like the idea of player base splintering asset packs either. I feel like the price should be baked into the cost of a module or map. But a free map makes that difficult... And I'm personally so in love with the idea of a pacific theatre for WWII that I'd throw just about any amount of money at it. Though I know most can't afford to.
