Posted by on

SdKfz.222 - T1 Scout
Primary Weapon: 2 cm KwK 30 Cannon
Secondary Weapon: Coaxial Machine Gun
SdKfz 222 Scout Car
Very fast scout unit with a large vision radius. Best used for scouting and hit and run attacks. The main weapon only does half damage to tanks and structures.

Panzer II - T1 Light Tank
Primary Weapon: 2 cm KwK 30 Cannon
Secondary Weapon: Coaxial Machine Gun
Panzer II Light Tank
A very lightly armored early tank. It has good speed, but has the same weapon as the SdKfz.222 with about double the armor.

Panzer III - T1 Medium Tank
Primary Weapon: 5 cm KwK 38
Secondary Weapons: Coaxial & Hull Machine Guns
Panzer III Medium Tank
The main tank of the early German army. It is one of the best tanks in the early part of the war. It's main armament is deadly to lightly armored units and will do damage to tanks.

Sturmpanzer I Bison - T1 Artillery
Primary Weapon: 15 cm sIG 33
Sturmpanzer I Bison Assault Gun
This early self-propelled artillery needs to be well defended as it is very lightly armored. The 15 cm cannon will do quite a bit of damage over a long range, but it suffers from a very low rate of fire.

Panzer IV - T2 Medium Tank
Primary Weapon: 7.5 cm KwK 40
Secondary Weapons: Coaxial & Hull Machine Guns
Panzer IV Medium Tank
The Panzer IV was the workhorse of the Germans during World War II. Fighting in every campaign of the war. This well armored tank will easily destroy all Tier 1 units with one shot, while taking little damage. They will remain competitive into the late part of the game balancing cost, firepower and armor.

Wespe - T2 Artillery
Primary Weapon: 10.5 cm leFH 18
Wespe Mobile Artillery
The Wespe SP Artillery is a very effective artillery that will remain the main artillery weapon throughout the game. It does the same damage as the Bison, but has twice the rate of fire with a longer range.

StuG III - T2 Tank Destroyer
Primary Weapon: 7.5 cm KwK 40
StuG III Tank Destroyer
One of the most effective armored units built by the Germans throughout the war. The StuG III has the same firepower and armor as the Panzer IV at half the cost. The only drawback is that the gun is not turreted so it does not fire on the move well.

Panzer VI Tiger - T2 Heavy Tank
Primary Weapon: 8.8 cm KwK 36
Secondary Weapon: Hull Machine Gun
German Panzer VI Tiger Heavy Tank
The fearsome Tiger tank features the best armor and gun of any Tier 2 unit. The 88 mm cannon provides firepower that will destroy all but the heaviest armored units with two shots. The biggest drawback is the huge cost and build time.

Panzer V Panther - T3 Medium Tank
Primary Weapon: 7.5 cm KwK 42
Secondary Weapons: Coaxial & Hull Machine Guns
Panzer V Panther Medium Tank
Widely considered the best tank the Germans built during the war. The Panther combines good speed and maneuverability with great firepower and armor. The primary weapon is more powerful than the Tiger's 88 mm because of it's higher muzzle velocity.

Panzer VI King Tiger - T3 Heavy Tank
Primary Weapon: 8.8 cm KwK 43
Secondary Weapons: Coaxial & Hull Machine Gun
Panzer VI King Tiger Heavy Tank
The King Tiger was the apex of German heavy tank design. It is better armored and has a better weapon than the Tiger. The 88 mm cannon will destroy every Tier 1 and Tier 2 unit, except the Tiger, with one shot. Most other units will not stand up to more than two shots.

Sturmtiger - T3 Artillery
Primary Weapon: 38 cm Stu M RW61
Sturmtiger Heavy Assault Gun Firing it's 380mm Gun
The Sturmtiger is a deadly Tier 3 Artillery unit. It's 380 mm shell does twice as much damage as the King Tiger's gun, but it fires inaccurately and very slowly at about one shot every 90 seconds. The Sturmtiger is best used to destroy the most heavily armored structures.

Jagdpanther - T3 Tank Destroyer
Primary Weapon: 8.8 cm KwK 43
Secondary Weapon: Hull Machine Gun
Jagdpanther Tank Destroyer
The Jagdpanther features better armor than the Panther and uses the same weapon as the King Tiger. For the cost, it is the best tank killing weapon in the game.

Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind - T3 SP-AA
Primary Weapon: Quad Mount 2 cm FlaK 38
Secondary Weapon: Hull Machine Gun
Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind Firing
For mobile air defense, the Wirbelwind is the answer. The quad mounted flak guns provide a deadly deterrent to air strikes on your units and will shred even the most determined infantry attacks.

Panzer VIII Maus - Experimental Heavy Tank
Primary Weapon: 12.8 cm Pak 44
Secondary Weapon: 7.5 cm KwK 42
Tertiary Weapon: Coaxial Machine Gun
Maus Super Heavy Tank Firing
The most heavily armored and most heavily armed unit in the game. The Maus will make short work of any ground threats with it's two deadly anti-tank guns. The Maus is also the most expensive unit in the game and is extremely slow. It would take close to an hour for the Maus to travel from one end to the other on a 81x81 map.

Jagdtiger - Experimental Tank Destroyer
Primary Weapon: 12.8 cm Pak 44
Secondary Weapon: Hull Machine Gun
Jagdtiger Heavy Tank Destroyer
The Jagdtiger is a very heavily armed tank killing machine. The deadly 128 mm cannon will destroy almost every tank with one shot. The Jagdtiger does come with some drawbacks as it is very expensive, slow moving and it does not have a turret.


Epic work on the rapid progress. I'm looking forward to the German navy once its up.

This mod is really shaping up well (and fast). Can't wait to see the rest of the units.
