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.

In the Post war game mode Japan is split into two sub-factions. Imperial Japan which uses late WW2 prototypes & concept units which might have been build if the war had lasted longer. The other being the Japanese Self Defence Force which uses units that Japan really used after the war.

The only other country to have a post-war sub-factions is China, where you can chose between Nationalist & Communist forces.

I only add sub-factions when there is enough variety of units and a historical reason for the sides separation.

Imperial Japan and the JSDF use completely different units and represent alt history and real life Japanese forces.

China's nationalist & communist also use different units and lets the player experience the two sides of the Chinese civil war.

America is already split into two sub-faction in all time frames, the army and marines. The army using units from the war in Europe and the marines using units from the Pacific war.

The other sides in D-day dont have enough units or any reason to have sub-factions.

The other sides have had post-war equipment since the first release.

If you dont know already, D-day is split up into five different times frames/game modes (Pre, early, mid, late & post-war) depending on which one you play in the selection of units each side can build changes. So in post-war the US use the M48 Patton, the British Centurion tanks and the Soviets the T-54.

The JSDF is a sub-faction of Japan that is only available in the post-war game mode, as an alternative to the normal post-war side.
