D-day! a mod that needs no introduction... but just in case:

D-day is a Would War II TC mod for the highly popular game Red Alert 2: Yuri’s Revenge, is the largest & longest running mod for RA2 to date. With hundreds of highly detailed & accurate units from pre World War 2 to a hypothetical post war. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to fight the good fight on land, sea & air. There are eight playable countries in D-day, as well as several other non-playable ones.

The playable sides are:

  • America
  • Great Britain
  • France
  • Soviet Union
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Hungary
  • Japan

The pride of D-day is the DTX terrain, which completely changes RA2’s cartoony look into a gritty WW2 landscape that has been heavily researched to create an authentic atmosphere. D-day also features maps of such places as Berlin, Stalingrad, Kursk, El Almain & even New York! Created using battlefield maps & period photos to get the highest accuracy possible.

M40 106mm

In 1944 the US Army developed their first recoilless rifle the M18 57mm, impressed with the design work started on larger 75mm and 105mm versions. The M20 75mm was deployed in the closing days of the war but the T19 105mm was still in development when the war ended and was soon after cancelled. With the outbreak of the Korean War the M18 57mm and M20 75mm recoilless rifles struggled to penetrate the armour of the North-Korean T-34/85 tanks, so work on the larger 105mm version was restarted and the T19 was rushed into production as the M27 105mm in 1950. Once deployed into the field it was found that that the M27 suffered from reliability problems and several other issues, so work on an improved version was started. By 1952 all the problems had be resolved and the M40 106mm was put into production. The M40 was called an 106mm weapon but it was really 105mm, this was because the ammunition for the M27 & M40 looked nearly identical but was not interchangeable between the two, so to help differentiate them the M40 and it's ammunition was classified as 106mm. The M40 went on to became the standard anti-tank weapon of America and it's allies, the M40 has also been mounted on many different vehicles ranging from Jeeps to tanks.

Bofors 40mm L/70

During WW2 the Bofors 40mm L/60 was the standard anti-aircraft gun of the Allies, being used on land, sea and air. With the advent of the jet age at the end of the war the venerable Bofors started to struggled with the increase of aircraft speeds. To combat this Bofors designed a new version with a longer 70 caliber barrel, an electrically powered carriage and a new lighter and more powerful ammunition. These changes nearly doubled the range and rate of fire of the weapon and in 1953 replaced the L/60 model as the standard Allies/NATO weapon system. The Bofors 40mm L/70 was also bought by many different countries around the world and is still in widespread use today.

M1A1 155mm

At the outbreak of the war in Europe the standard American 155mm artillery weapon was the ageing M1918 155mm which was built during WW1, with the threat of war looming a replacement was desperately needed. Work on the new 155mm weapon was completed in 1941 along with a 4.7-inch gun which used the same carriage design. In 1942 it was accepted at the M1 155mm and fought throughout WW2 on all fronts. It continued to serve with the American army in the Korean war and then the Vietnam War, eventually being replaced in 1978 by the M198. Over 10,000 M1, M1A1 and M1A2 where built during its 12 year production run and was sold to 35 different countries around the world, some of which are still using them today.

Greetings Mig_Eater
Have you ever considered adding a whole "What if?" era?
For example... Adding units that could exist if war continued or if some countries were developing tanks and combat vehicles... That could be nice too. Hope you like this idea... Maybe i can even send you some examples ;).

D-day is split up into 5 "time frames" (pre, early, mid, late & post). In the Post-War game mode you use concept & prototype units in a scenario where WW2 continued on into the 1950's.

Countries such as France & Poland which were defeated during the early stages of WW2 also use concept & prototype units in the mid & late modes, showing what might have been if they hadn't been defeated.

That is not how i meant it actually... I had an idea to make a mod (for yet unchosen game) that will add completely unique weapons and vehicles, but i am not skilled modder or modeller. It was about alternate reality where lots of european countries had more time to prepare for war, which started several years later... It was meant to provide balanced units (especially tanks and aircraft) for lots of countries which affect on WW2 was little to none because of lack of modern equipment and weak army...
Lets take tanks for example... Germany reached pinnacle of tank engineering in WW2 and invented tanks that were fast, heavily armored and were capable of dispatching enemy tanks at extremy ranges. But other countries like Britain and USSR hadnt any tank like this in WW2, not to mention countries like Hungary, ČSR, Poland or Finland, Sweden and Denmark... My goal was to "invent" vehicles and weapons for less developed countries, that would be based on their real life designs and armanent...

I have lots of "blueprints" especially of tanks, but some of infantry weapons and aerial vehicles too... If you are interested to help me with this i will gladly appreciate that... If u dont, I wont be mad...

There where so many real concept & prototype units designed during WW2 that thus far I haven't needed to "invent" anything to fill D-day's what if scenarios.

I dont have time to work on another project but feel free to PM me if you want to discus any ideas.

Possibly, but it will most likely be mounted on a turntable and not mobile.

D-Day "See You On The Beach" ****: An Invasion Ten Years In The Waiting D-Day is a project that has been in the works longer than some players have been playing Yuri's Revenge. Since the time that D-Day began to take shape back in 2002, The West has completed it's "War on terror", an African American was elected as POTUS, the Arab World rose up in revolt and Social media sites took over our lives. Indeed the D-Day mod has been in the works for a long time, but finally through the hard-work of it's…
