Hi and Welcome to the westfront!
the Westfront mod put 4 faction Divisions into the Battle of Normandy and Belgium
it only uses Vehicles that was used in the time between June and October 1944

the faction are not real units (a 19.PzGrdiv was never build)
i choose this way to use all Vehicles that was used in Normandy
without making more Factions

and to bring the whole aspect of the battles in Normandy ingame
the 19. PzGrDiv replac esthe german Wehrmacht
the 12. Fj Division replaces all units that was part of the Luftwaffe
the 39. Infantrydivision stand for the British and Canadian Forces
the 17. Tank Division replaces all American units

all these 4 Factions got their own history

the 19. PzGrDiv was involved into the Battles around Caen against the Canadians and British troops
later it was a mainpart of the "unternhemen l├╝ttich" and was closely escaping the Falaise pocket

at the 6th of June the 12. Fj.Division was fighting against the american troops on the the contentin peninsula, that was comin from the Division was split by the Americans into two parts
the one part was defending Cherbourg and the other part was so hard damaged by Allied Air bombardment that it was send to Belgium to Regroup and refresehing (only 35% where left of them)
later it was involved into the Market Garden operation

its the same system that Relic used for their Factions (Kampfgruppe Lehr,Able Company,etc)

Why is there no pershing in the Mod, the M26 was a tank in 2. WW which has done a lot of damage to the german Tanks in a few days ?

because the westfront mod only plays from 6.6. 1944 until the end of market garden - and the pershing was only available at the march 1945 - thats the reason why you will never see this tank in this mod
