Default Infantry Squads

It feels very cumbersome in the mission editor to deal with individual infranty, then to create squads, platoons and bigger groups front that.
Whilst I like the flexibility, I wonder whether introducing infantry squads and similar as an infantry type might not only make mission creation easier, but also improve performance if they thought and acted as one group.

Agreed. We don't need to model private snuffy in glorious detail...

It probably can, but frankly, they're a bit of a pain to use too.

I use several templates for small, medium and big groups of infantry for that reason.

same here, it takes all of 30 seconds to create one in the ME


What I would like however is a greater choice of infantry unit types, eg At4 guy for blue side , MG gunner for Red ..... the list goes on

Yeah that's definitely something missing in the infantry department, as well as the fact they're all clones. (I mean 3-5 different faces would suffice) but not only having like 1 variant for a couple of countries leaves much to be desired

we're still missing like 3/4 of guerilla warfare staples to this day.


zero dismounted ATGM units
zero sniper units
zero HMG tripods / man portable HMG
very little RPG variants (none of the modern ones)
no toyota HMG/rocketpod/improvised mortar truck/whatever
no BTR-40/50/60/70
no SA-7 strela
no redeye





game's missing a ton of really important light vehicles. it still shows it's KA-50/A-10 heritage too much, now that it's basically a 3rd gen aircraft sim. the "weakest" armed units are way too modern now that there's a bunch of light attack assets in the game that rely on being able to fly into an area without getting gunned down.
