I'm pretty sure the armies in this mod are CommonWealth and Germany, so the Australians being part of the Commonwealth are already in the mod. Didn't you notice how most of the Commonwealth infantry have like red skin? So it looks like they're from the Australian/New Zealand region.

There were more than 3500 Germans KIA simply because they didnt evem manage to land safely as the locals were waiting for them to.So many of them were killed by mele weapons.If you visit Krete there is a graveyard dedicated to the kia german soldiers and there are at least 5.000 germans graves there not 3500.And if the capture of the Krete was so simple and easy why werent any German paratrooper actions after this battle?Simply because Hitler himself mentioned that "The great days of the luftwaffe were passed".

How do you plan to kill a German who is armed with Karabine/Sub-Machine gun, grenades, bayonets and P38s, not to mention their training, with sticks and rocks? As @JesusOfCalgary said, there were only 7 or 8 reported kills with melee weapons so that number in reality can't be bigger then 20. And btw when Germans recovered, they massacred the civilians for punishment. And why were there no more paratrooper actions? AFAIK in 1941. Germans controlled almost entire Europe and big part of Northern Africa so there were basicly no NEED for them! I don't understand how could you plan an invasion of paratroopers in the desert? And Operation Barbarrosa was going swiftly because of german Panzers supported with mechanised Infantry.

Dude many of them were killed instantly before they could even land safely(they were drowed in the sea or hanged at trees) so all the weapons u mentioned were not in somes cases used at all because the paratrooper was killed.In addition if you visit Krete you will see that the terrain is hilly and not compatible for this kind of warfare.I can quarantee that there were more than 7-8 kia by melee weapons simply because my grandfather fought in this war and told me about it.In addition my point was to remind you that there were more than 3.500 paris kia and it is widely accepted that battle of Krete was the first battle were civilian actions for restistance were so high.The luftwaffe lost its power after this operation its alreday proven Hitles himself mentioned thtis.My point was (before you started arguing with me) that this mod need a militia unit as the locals played a dentrimental role in this fight !!!!

THE GERMANS WON! HOW CLOUD THEN MILITIA PLAY AN IMPORTANT PART? AND MOST OF THE GERMANS WERE KILLED BECAUSE WHEN THEY LANDED THEY WERE ONLY AREMED WITH P-38s
THEY HAD TO WAIT FOR THE SUPPLY DROPS, I STUDY HISTORY MAN! I GOT AN A+ IN THIS.

Yes the militia had a huge contribution to the battle of crete, especially in the last days of the battle they helped the greeks/british out a lot. I do believe they deserve a doctrinal squad or something, same for the greeks (not sure if there is or isn't already a greek squad) because they at least played a big enough role to be counted for. Although I'm sure Serg_Codmod already has a lot on his hands.
