Everything started as an idea for a small update, based on this cool picture on DeviantArt.com made by vidopro97, about a 442nd Siege Battalion version of the 212th Bomb Squad. But then we realized that for some reason all pictures of the 442nd we already posted are gone from ModDB. So I decided to create a new article about the whole battalion and we will show it for the first time with all units in it, so pay attention :)
The 442nd Siege Battalion will be in the mod only as 1 Phase II Special company. I will be composed of 107 regular troopers, 8 rocket launcher troopers, 8 Z6 troopers, 4 Medics, 12 CT Sergeants, 4 CT Lieutenant and all that is managed by a Artillery Commander
The troopers - left to right Z6, Rifle, Blaster, Backpack and Rocket Launcher
In addition to the main company, several detachments are added to aid.
Sniper detachment - 4 Sniper teams
EWEB detachment - 2 EWEB teams
Mortar detachment - 4 Mortar teams (new unit)
Combat Engineer detachment - 4 Engineers
Combat Pioneer detachment - 4 Pioneers (new unit)
Artillery detachment - 3 AV-7 Anti-vehicle Artillery Cannons with escort of 3 Cannon Spotters(new unit) to help with artillery guidance and 3 regular troopers with a Sergeant to protect the group.
So, as usual, please share your thoughts about our work on the 442nd Siege Battalion
Nice string of ideas there, devs. Though I'm thinking you meant "detachment" instead of "attachement", no? When I first read it, I thought you will be adding something to blaster rifles, heheh.
Well, yeah, you are probably right, it's a bad translation, I didn't thought about it when writing the article. But the idea was that those squads are addition to the main company, so they are attached to it. But anyway, thanks!
I'm waiting for an article like that about the 327th Ahahah 8)
I would be very surpriced if you didn't :D
I was thinking yesterday about making an article for all legions, if there is enough interest I will. Opinions?
I support this idea
Do an article for all legions, spices things up.
totally do it
Having different legions have different units and equipment rather than just being a different colored infantry unit is a pretty cool idea. I look forward to calling on the 442nd to capture the enemies most heavily fortified worlds.
Well, it's not called Siege Battalion for nothing :D
I'm wondering should we add more unit types? Any suggestions?
Nice thing for the AV-7 Artillery attachment. Though it would have been pretty awesome if it had like an AT-TE with AT-RTs. Still awesome !
I think it will be too much. And it's easy to build it separately and land it in the same battle
