- EU units will represent various EU major nations, some units such as Europanzer will be "pluralistic" (kind of GLA's Technical). I hope that was a rather transparent hint :P

- Such thing is planned indeed for Intermarium (NA), as for the other factions we will see if such feature could be implemented performance-wise (and working hours-wise too =) )

our feature is that we show a non-Soviet futirized Russia. We've made a lot of modern-era vehicles, but some of them are a subject to future change and eventually the faction will be infinitely far from Red Alert cold war clichés :)

A lot of parallel and sideway factions are planned for future (can't say if this future is closer than the end of the world or not) DLCs. And we got pretty many US models already in our warehouse, btw.
As to storyline matters, I try to not to spoiler a lot, but since out storyline is far from being finished, we're open to shiny new proposals :P

Let me explain on this matter finally. Intermarium couldn't appear out of thin air, it needs solid justification. We realized that just placing a large independent superpower between EU and Russia without any prehistory and plausible explanation is not a go.
Intermarium is the dream nation of NA. And during the course of the campaign you will see if they achieve their goals... or not.
