Long time no post
Here is a suggestion that Tail Gunners "Panzer Vorwärts"-post brought to my mind again.
Right now the Division, when clicked open, shows huge numbers of different INDIVIDUAL equiptments. It is quite chaotic to try to figure out and seems that German side runs out of room for their units anyway.
Divisions strenght, after all, is not the sum of individual units but the sum of the subunits.
So, I propose that the display and listing of TOE would be changed (both for WITE and the follow on WITW and so on) as follows:
After opening the DIVISION listing there is list of all the subunits and the actual individual units (as would belong for the opened subunit) are seen when the subunit is opened. Here is an example as German 1st Infanterie Division (22.06.1941):
When opened it would list:
1 Inf. Regiment
22 Inf. Regiment
43 Inf. Regiment
1 Artillery Regiment
1 Pionier Battalion
1 Supply (under whatever you want to lump the noncombat supply function)
When you click the subunit For example 1 Panzerjager-Abt it shows the individual units:
18x LMG 34
This would open up new avenues for future development of the game along with accurate TOE listings.
If it would be possible to include I can post more thoughts of the various applications that can be included due to this change. (role of division commander, beneficial combat modifiers for better recon, commitment of troops from Division reserves, subdeployment stands within division for defence, advance and attack etc.)
Nobody respects a country with a poor army, but everybody respects a country with a good army. I raise my toast to the Finnish Army.
