Different kind of light brigade and hopefully a different outcome.

really down voted for hoping that the light brigade prevails in their charge?

Poor SOB obviously never read any of Alfred Tennyson's poetry.

Actually the light brigade won, I think that´s the reason for the downvotes. They just lost 60% of their numbers but eventually broke through the russian lines and routed them alltough they were at this point about 1 to 10 outnumbered. The Tennyson poems line "Then they rode back. But not, not the sixhundred" merely referes to the awefull amount of casulties that they suffered while charging and afterwards moving back the same way. But nice to see somebody actually reads poetry ;)

They didn't win anything. The charge was a blunder and a failure. The light brigade managed to engage a few Russian batteries at the end and forced them back, but these rejoined their guns and started firing again as soon as the surviving cavalrymen turned back.
It would have been even worst had the French Chasseurs d'Afrique not engaged the Russian batteries on the Fedyukhin Heights and saved the remnants of the light brigade in the process.

Another example of French Colonial's stellar combat record.

Will there be a German unit that had body armor? I know it slowed them down and didnt really work but it would be pretty cool to have that unit

We could do that, the problem is scale. I doubt that hundreds of armour-equipped German soldiers would charge forward in a single formation, it simply seems unlikely. Such body armour would look good on a small scale in squad-based scenarios (and indeed we have the tiny scale, but we have no plans to separate the unit aesthetics between the scales yet), but our goal is mostly to portray the titanic actions that were the great offensives of the war.

quick question:Will tanks impact the battle more than an extra infantry unit? and How?

I think they will. The tanks of WW1 supported the advancing infantry by destroying MG-bunkers/positions. They could do this in the mod as well.

Correct. A male tank will be key to taking out enemy bunkers (which will cause enormous casualties if assaulted the conventional way) and destroying enemy tanks... Among priority targets in terms of enemy tanks should be female tanks and light tanks, both of which to varying degrees are dangerous to infantry. A female tank is capable of gunning down infantry units fast.

I love losing hundreds of soldiers cause the destruction just looks awesome. Except when im high i cant play strategy games because i worry about losing men and not feeling up to the responsibility. :(

Description

Field guns can have a devastating effect on tanks through the use of heavy and accurate direct fire. Commanders should neither underestimate the power of these artillery pieces, or overestimate the survivability of a tank. (this was not the work of only one field gun battery, however!)
