i am form Crete.I really have to say that my ancestors had only a few weapons so when the germans landed they even hit them with rocks then grabed their weapons and continued the fight.Greek contribution was more important than the British as there were only a few aa guns so the Germans landed witthout problems.BUT they faced heavy resistance by the locals and had many many casualties.Churchill said that hitler could capture many more teritories in Afrika and Asia using the troops KIlED in Crete.So imagine how heavy their losses were.My point is that you need to add a Greek unit maybe called in by a doctrine :)

What are you talking about? There weren't more then 3500 Germans killed and about 4000 Allies KIA for entire Battle of Crete. Greek resistance wasn't a problem from I read in my history books/documents as they had no military training nor battlefield experience and were easily killed by German Fallschirmjagers who had months and months of training and preperations.

Well I just read through the wikipedia page on the battle of crete to find that apparently I was wrong, there were between 6000-7000 dead germans (glider troops, airborne+kriegs marine aswell as drown) Although Winston Churchill claimed there were 16000-22000 dead (which is now known to be untrue) While the allied KIA are around 17 000 (according to wikipedia) and as far as civilians they lost more than the estimated german forces lost. (7000-8000) according to cretan documents. (I have no exact source) And it is said 7 or 8 germans were killed by melee weapons.

I guess you read casulties for the entire Battle of the Crete but I think that wiki counts wounded as casulties too so I don't think that so many people died but I am sure that many British sailors died. Only thing I know is that althought the first day, Germans were losing badly, they recovered quickly and dominated the battlefield. And I didn't say that Crete Militia wasn't big part of the battle or anything I just said that they weren't problem for German paratroopers who had months of training and lot of them had battle experience.

ALso, to add to that, the greek divisions were with experience as they had already fought in greece but were forced to retreat to crete. And although yes the crete militia did help A LOT they were not in any way a significant factor of the war like @mixas says they were.

Battlefield 3 is a modern war FPS and the Modern Combat mod is a modern war RTS, and seeing as it took them 3 years (abouts, I am not entirely sure) to get where they are now I would not advise trying to start all over just to make the gameplay a little more like BF3 (which, since the BF3 gameplay is made specifically for FPS it makes no sense to me why you would want an RTS version as opposed to just getting the Modern Combat mod.
