The new version has been released:
Eagle, Globe and Anchor: USMC Campaign for Panzer Corps v0.9
This version v0.9 of a historical campaign covering the USMC’s role in the Pacific War 1942-45. It’s been created under PzC 1.05, and is single-player only. It's designed and tested esp. for play in the 3rd difficulty level (here renamed Lt.Colonel), but of course you can choose whatever you prefer.
V0.9 includes now the full main campaign of 14 scenarios, lots of new units incl. custom graphics, and many sounds and anims provided by VPaulus, who did an awesome job in this regard.

GME files: http://www.gamefront.com/files/21466420/USMC_Redux_GME_zip (ca. 140MB)
Scenario files: http://www.gamefront.com/files/21466424/USMC_Redux_Campaign_zip (only ca. 200KB)
- switched colors for unit str plates: http://www.gamefront.com/files/21188173/USMC_altgfx.zip
- red colors for Japanese unit str plates (thanks Wino): http://wino.babilon24.org/pics/strplates.png
These are optional in case you don't like the str plates coming with this mod. Copy one the alternative file you like to the "..Graphics\Overlays" folder of this mod to use it.
This release is not compatible to the first release version (v0.5). If you have this version installed it is strongly recommended to install the new version separately, not just "over" the older version. V 0.5 is not supported anymore and can be removed.
This campaign needs GME. If you never used it, please see here how to download and set it up:
There is now a split installation needed for this mod
Basically the GME files belong into GME's MODS folder, which is usually in the main folder of your Panzer Corps installation, unless you specified another location. The scenario files belong into your ../My Games folder under Panzer Corps/mods/
Instead of a long explanation, the following pic should illustrate the correct locations:
To play, activate the USMC mod via GME. If you use a localized version of PzC it is best to switch to the English language to play. Start the campaign via PzC’s main menu > new game > more campaigns > select the USMC campaign.
Infos about changes, unit traits, campain path, special features, credits and more are available in the customized in-game library, and I highly recommend to consult it to understand key concepts, fundamental changes etc., etc.. :)
Credits and Thanks:
I want to thank esp. nikivdd, El_Condoro, and VPaulus for all the help regarding PzC modding or the editor.
The custom graphics for the 'shallow sea' terrain were made with the help of rezaf. I also use one of the Opel units from rezaf's and flak's unit skin mod as Japanese truck. Graphics for medals and the data files for awrds are made by El_Condoro. As noted, VPaulus has also done a terrific job in adapting his Real Sound Mod for use with the USMC campaign. I also use US medals made by El_Condoro.
Furthermore I also want to give credit to a 3d creator named robotnik for providing a the basic 3d model of the US M3 AT gun, and to Radoye from JP’s who helped me getting Japanese terms right.
I hope the procedure to install is clear; if not, just askl. Unfortunately the whole GME handling is a tad annoying IMO, but needed to make this work.
I added some more previews, showing also some Japanese units this time. For the other questions it is like VPaulus said, so this is only playable as USMC.
