Oh say an engineering unit for exmaple 'EAB', an RAF Hurricane unit 'Trop.' or a IJA LCU 'RTA'. I know those. But there are a lot of others I just can't figure out. It's not important. I'm just really, really curious.

EAB = Engineer Aviation Battalion (construction engineers)
Trop. = Tropical

For use in North Africa the Hawker Hurricane Mk IIB (and other variants) were tropicalised. They were fitted with Vokes and Rolls Royce engine dust filters and the pilots were issued with a desert survival kit, including a bottle of water behind the cockpit

RTA = Royal Thai Army

Yes, I got those. But there are many more abbreivations on many other indivual units and squadrons. I was hopiing that there maybe some sort of list that has been compiled.

No list that I'm aware of.

Here are the US Army and Marine LCU abbreviations that may not be self-explanatory:

CPNAB = Contractors, Pacific Naval Air Bases: A consortium of 8 engineering companies that were building air bases for the US Navy in the Pacific when the war began.
Cst Art = Coastal Artillery
Def Bn = Defense Battalion
EAB = Engineer Aviation Bn
Eng Con = Engineer Construction (Brigade)
(H&M) = Horse & Mechanized; an interim Cavalry Regiment organization. Restricted to the West Coast
(Hrse) = Horse cavalry regiment. Restricted to the West Coast
Merrills Marauders = popular name of the 5307th Composite Unit (provisional), a light infantry long range penetration special operations unit that fought in Burma. Later converts to the 475th Infantry Regiment
SeaBees = the popular name for Naval Construction Battalions (CBs = SeaBees). Naval Construction Regiments are x3 CBs in a single LCU.
(Sep)= Separate; usually an independent regiment, not part of a Division
(Spec)= Special. A division or regiment with a unique TO&E. Ex. 1st Cavalry (Spec) Division
Specl Svc= 1st Special Service Force, a regimental-sized commando-type unit that served briefly in the Aleutians
TD= Tank Destroyer
USA/ USAAF / USMC/ USN = United States Army / Army Air Forces / Marine Corps / Navy

872/873rd EAB = two battalions of EABs in a single LCU

And I believe RTA is Royal Thai Army.

The M/W for the 8th RAF M/W still somewhat a mystery, eh?

Anything on the IJA units?

But hey thanks for the others. Sure helps me with the bells and whistles within the game.
I'm sure I'll find some more as time goes along.

Again thanks all.

Don't know the correct answer, but the natural assumption would be that M/W stands for Maintenance and Workshop.

Personally I'm glad not all of them made the cut for AE.....
