I have a couple of scenarios completed for the Panzergrenadier "1940: Fall of France" game but I found that I will have to design several new vehicles and a couple of infantry units to make the conversion complete.

New Vehicles:
Hotchkiss H35/39
Char 2C
AMC Schneider P16 Armoured Car
P178 Armoured Car (I will be using the data and .bmp file from the German oob but with a new French unit number)
Canon de 194 mm self-propelled gun (again, I will use the data and .bmp file from the German oob but with a new French unit number)
25 mm ATG truck portee

New infantry:
Escadron Infantry (These are the elite infantry of the French Army)
Reserve Infantry (Pretty much just cannon fodder for the Germans but since they are used in the 1940:FoF game I thought they should be included)

I am having a great deal of fun doing this. I want to thank Jason and Mike for all the great help they have given me over the past few days. Without them I wouldn't be able to create these new units and it wouldn't be possible to do some of the scenarios that I am converting.

Chris.

Correction to above. The Hotchkiss H35/39 should be H35/SA38.

You mean the graphics? That would be cool. About the closest graphic I can use at the moment is a Char B1 but it will have to suffice for the time being. I finished all the data for it around 2 this morning.

Yep!! Started on it, but the model I'm redoing is not very close, so is basically a ground-up, very time consuming!

Cool. I definitely will be able to use it when you are finished, if you wish to share it with me. I just sent Jason the files for the new French oob and updated weapon.pdt file to be encrypted. I would have had them finished sooner but this has been one of those weeks I'd rather forget. Once I get them back, I can resume work on the scenario conversions. Chris.

BTW...I found that the AMC Schneider P16 Armoured Car is already in JTCS, just under a different designation.
