Full list of NEW UNITS of the mod:

US
==
- Mass-produced Sherman
It costs less time to be built and is cheaper. But It can't be upgraded with the 76mm gun and is weaker
but it is faster.
It allows allies to have more tanks so they will not be outnumbered by german tanks. It can be upgraded
with Armor Skirts instead of Crab Mine Flail. (He has a green skin)

- Radio Operator (From Dawn of Conflict mod by Kamino)
He can call Air recon flight and artillery Support on the battlefield. You can't have more than 2 of them.
They can be trained in the Weapons Support Center.

- Scout:
cheap recon unit, can detect sniper and capture strategic points, can use camouflage, have long sight,
can be built in the barrack and sometimes the HQ.
Only 3 available.

- lieutenant Powell (Hero = only one available)
(from Medal of Honor...) a super ranger that can beat any infantry squad with only his M1Garand :)
He can be built in the barrack. He can be upgraded with his thomson that make him extremely effective in close
but rather ineffective at long range.

- US Priest
It is the Priest. Now buildable in the tank depot

- US Stuart
It is the Stuart, now buildable in the motor pool.

- the Supply truck: Gives some manpower, fuel and ammunition.
It is very useful because it can also produce weapons like thomson, BAR, M9Bazooka. The supply truck can also reinforce
troops and transport them.
It can be produced in the Logistic Support

- 76 mm AT gun (added to US)
More powerful and moves slower than the 57 mm AT gun.

- Pershing Ace (added to US)
A Pershing driven by elite crews. It can be called only once per game.

- Medic
This guy will heal your wounded soldiers. He is unarmed.

Whermacht
=========
- Schwimmwagen
A light car suited to reconaissance duties due to it's high speed, acceleration and it's ability to ford waterway crossings without previous preparation.
Is armed with only an MG42, and can capture strategic points.

- Bunker with 88mm Pak 43
The 88mm Pak 43 has the same firepower as the Flak 88 but it can only fire toward a fixed direction.
(defense doctrine required)

- Flammenwerfer Team
It is a team of 3 flamethrowers extremely effective against infantry at short range. I had to create them
because too many people wanted something to counter Powell. They may be built in the Wehrmacht Quarters
but require the Escalate to Skirmish Phase. Only 3 squads available.

- the Supply truck: Gives some manpower, fuel and ammunition.
It is very useful because it can also produce weapons like mp40,mp44,mg42,panzerschreck. The supply truck can also reinforce
troops and transport them.
It can be produced in the Sturm Armory

- Scout:
cheap recon unit, can detect sniper and capture strategic points, can use camouflage, have long sight
can be built in the barrack and sometime the HQ (yeah, sometimes...it doesn't work. I dont know why)

- The Eselschreck: a very special unit that Relic has created... :)
I let you guess how to build it. Note: The AI will NEVER build it.

- The Officer (Hero = only one available)
The officer can be upgraded with a mp44. (His mp44 is very effective like the Powell's Thomson)

- The Hilter-Jugend squad: the Hitler Jugend was an organisation which indoctrinated young children with
The nazi's ideology. Thereby, when they were old enough, lots of these young boys (and girls) fought against the allies.
They can be produced with the 'Zeal' upgrade from the propaganda tactics. Propaganda doctrine Required

- Tiger ace
A black Tiger driven by an elite crew. Only one available per game.

Only available to the Defense doctrine of the wehrmacht. It is automatically
on overwatch mode. It can also fire at very long range.
cost= 450 Manpower and 75 fuel

Commonwealth
============
- Firefly Ace
A Firefly driven by elite crews. It can be called only once per game.

- Staghound Armoured Car
A 4 wheeled armoured car developed by the U.S., but adopted by British forces as the Staghound.
Armed with a 37mm main gun and 2x .30 caliber machineguns restrict this vehicle to anti-infantry and
light anti-tank duties, but the advantage of being wheeled is good speed which make it ideal for a reconaissance role.

- 6 pounder AT gun
Lighter than the 17 pounder, it is also less powerful, cheaper. It is equivalent to the 57mm AT gun.

- Mobile AT 17 pounder
It is the fearsome British AT 17 pounder and it can now move on the battlefield. Its price and its very slow speed compensate its great firepower.

- The Royal Engineer
They can repair much faster and make vehicle stronger, recover destroyed vehicles and they also build faster.
The Royal Engineer support is required to call them.

- Medic
This guy will heal your wounded soldiers. He is unarmed.

- The SAS squad (Hero = only one available):
A squad of highly trained commando that can perform many task as destroy bridges, lay traps, attack behind enemy lines.

The squad is composed of one sniper, one man with a Bren, one with a bazooka and a field medic with a sten.

- the Supply truck: Gives some manpower, fuel and ammunition.
It is very useful because it can also produce weapons like thomson, BAR, M9Bazooka, Bren and Piat. The supply truck can also reinforce
troops and transport them.
It can be produced in the Field Support Truck

- Scottish squad
Exactly the same as Infantry Section but they wear Scottish kilts.

- Bren Carrier with flamethrowers
It is a Bren carrier equiped with flamethrowers.

- Radio
Allow you to call reinforcements and the RAF.

Panzer Elite
============

- the Supply truck, nearly the same as the one of the wehrmacht. It is also an half-track, so it can defend itself when there is troops inside.
It can also produce mortar and heavy MG42.

- Special Pioneers
They are the only unit in the PE that can detect mines. They can build defences, trenches lay mines, destroy bridges, repair vehicles and buildings.
They can also build PantherTurm and Mortar Bunker.

- Wilhelm Deinhard (Hero = only one available):
An officer equipped with an mp44. It can be upgraded with his Gewehr 43 sniper Rifle and become the probably best sniper of the game. He can be
produced in the Panzer-Jager Kommand

This Panzer IV is equipped with a Longer 7.5 cm KwK 40 L/48 gun, which has a better penetration against heavy armor. It can be produced in

suggestion:
remove the flamethrower Bren,make it an upgrade and do not put a flamethrower squad in it,just make it change the machine gun with a flamethrower and name it Bren WASP. here is a photo of one: Upload.wikimedia.org

change the skin of the airborne squad of the British so Canadian infantry would look more like the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion,here is a photo of one: 1stcanpara.org.hosting.domaindirect.com

make the supply truck of the British just produce British weapons the American supply truck just American weapons etc.

dont make the Scottish squad the same as the infantry section change his purpose to another like support or something like that

and finnaly:don't put British unit like the Stuart to the US

oh..i before i forget:the stag hound don't have sound
