29/8/2012 was the date I relaeased this mod for the first time.
The mod had actually been in development for two months before it got released.
It ran with a different system back then, and it did not work as it works now.
so after a year of development I have gone far, as a developer of myself(Coding, I cannot say I made the Custom models included, they were made by the Coh modding community. And some UI stuff)
on one year this mod went from VCoH without buildings but still units produceable
to a mod with a lot of infantry and vehicles and including 2 brand new winconditions.

this update is NOT big but got some nice stuff included for the americans, and for the germans(Wehrmahct).
Version 1.0.7 is also the version I had the most trouble finding out what to do. I did not know what to implement, should I implement that or not? it was hard, and I felt I could not just make an update with only bug fixes. Therefore I decided to add some Shermans for the Americans, a pak gun for the Germans(Wehrmacht) and a Jagdtiger replacing the duplicated King Tiger. and I even found a Custom model for a British AT tank gun. These models were made by the CoH Modding Community plus all the other Custom Models in the mod, they were all made by the community.

Q: So will there be any more updates after 1.0.7?
A: Yes! this mod is not finished, I even got ideas for two new WinConditions already.
Q: Can we get the Changelog for 1.0.7?
A: it is right here:

I hope you like the changes, do you feel something should be added?
feel free to comment/PM me with your idea.

I have also gotten some comments about some "No Range $18xxxxx"
this is because youre using a Non-English version of the game.
can I do something to fix this?
yes! PM me and I will send you the text files so you can start translate, then send them back to me and they will be ready for the next verison. Remember you will not only help yourself out but also a lot of other people.
