***TEAM D-DAY JUNE 1944***(The new version will come back with the Afrika 43 release)
Justforfun1: Project Leader/Coder/Art/Realization.
D-DAY, June 1944 add-on is a complete cosmetic rework historically accurate based on the Normandy battle during the D-Day on June 6th 1944, the D-DAY add-on will take you into the Normandy battle and give you access to the real combat units who fought in Normandy, all the fake uniforms, flags, symbols, icons etc... are replaced by the real ones for a better game play experience, this Historical add-on is a visual/cosmetic change, your COH Blitzkrieg Mod game will remain untouched.
****The D-DAY JUNE 1944 add-on is FULLY ONLINE MULTIPLAYER COMPATIBLE, EVEN IF YOUR OPPONENT(s) DON'T HAVE THE ADD-ON INSTALLED TO HIS GAME, (The campaign mode is still not supported by Blitzkrieg Mod and by Historical add-on).
***TEAM AFRIKA 43***(Work In Progress, not released yet)
Justforfun1: Project Leader/Coder/Art/Realization.
AFRIKA 43 add-on is a total Blitzkrieg Mod conversion on the 1940/43 desert war between the Axis Afrika Korps and the Commonwealth 8th Army to your COH Blitzkrieg Mod (2 factions in total, Afrika Korps+CW 8th Army), all units represented in this new historical add-on are historically accurate, new models, new doctrines, new historical skins, new desert maps of the biggest north African battles.
Commonwealth 8th Army:
-7th Armoured Division. (The Desert Rats)
-9th Australian Division.
-13th Free French Half Brigade of the Foreign Legion.
-LRDG Jeep & Commandos (Long Range Desert Group)
-Including new vehicles such Crusaders tanks Mk II & III. Sherman Mk III, Hurricane II-C.
-164th Infantry Division.

-1 Doctrine (Army) per faction (Afrika Korps/8th Army) instead of the 3 normally present per factions in COH, with 16 upgrades each, each doctrines/Army will give you access to Infantry/Tanks/Artillery regrouping the best of the best materials existing per Army compared to the normal 3 specific COH doctrines, you will have to choose depending of your needs where you want to go first, the Arty units will be reached only at the end of each doctrines, why 1 doctrine instead of 3? well the advantage of one doctrine is to have access to the materials you need depending of the way your opponent will play and not being "Stuck" only with one doctrine and be limited with unique materials, all army are complete and will oppose great forces for epics infantry/tanks battles FUN GUARANTEED!
