The Axis Foreign Army can deploy advanced units faster than the other factions. However, these units are initially badly trained or equipped with obsolete technology. Most of the units has 2 upgrades that are automatically unlocked when the proper amount of tech points is collected. For example, the PaK 36 will be upgraded to PaK 38 and eventually to PaK36 with a Stielgranate 41. Unlike the other factions, the Axis Foreign Army consumes tech point when ordering an upgraded version of the reinforcements. It is possible to reduce and eventually stop the tech points consumption with upgrades in the “Manage supplies” section of the reinforcement menu. Here it is also possible to exchange other tech points for a particular type of tech point (for example you can get 4 infantry tech points at the cost of 2 artillery and 2 vehicle tech points).
Italian infantry is made by riflemen and SMG soldiers. Each upgrade improves the skill of the soldiers.
Romanian support team
The Romanian support team is made of riflemen, SMG soldiers, and machinegunners. Each upgrade improves the skills of the soldiers.
