Hi fellow warmongers,

so here is a first teaser of the new equipment/units that you will get with update 1.08. Please mind that its is just the first basic list and that 1.08 is still some way ahead.
There will be many more units as well as nations that get equipment. The list will be expanded & revealed over time.

Enjoy

There have been many new units introduced over the years but when I play the A-A Campaign, which is what I play, I never see most of them. Do they only appear in scenarios or scenarios the player creates?
Thanks.

You do not have them in the first scenarios but if you have enough resource points you can buy them.

Op Barbarossa is a good campaign for testing the new units because you have no limits for your army. AA is a little bit harder because of the limit for core units but you can buy some new units there.

Hi folks,

it can absolutely happen, that you have not seen all new units of the previous updates. This depends a lot on which campaigns or scenarios you are playing and which side you usually take.

Especially in the last update (GaW 1.07) there were many units that will appear in the major Soviet campaign that was already planned for last year.

So even if you couldn't find a certain units in the battles so far, you will in time.

Regards,

Hi Ronald,
Fiat G50 "Freccia" ?
Certain formations were sent to Russia in June, 1941 for the operation Barbarossa where they knew certain success.

I don't think that it's either of the above Italian fighters. Ronald's fighter has a nose which is pretty flat compared to the Italian models which have more slope. However, I have no idea what fighter Ronald is showing.

Hi Ronald,
This new fella looks like a Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf B a lot.




Nice the images of units WIP. You could put this images of units WIP in an entitled folder "Bonus Materials" in the next update ?

Thanks

Hi terminator,

glad you like this stuff, i will add some more. And of course we could do some "Bonus Materials" just did not think about something like it. We will look into our folders if there is something else we can add for such a folder in 1.08. Thanks for the idea.

Regards,

Italian L6/40 tank.

The Romanians showed quite good results in Moldova and Odessa; now it is time for the Italian allies to start fighting.

Hi Marechal,

Indeed the Italians need to increase their support in future missions!

Hi terminator,

LXVII Bersaglieri Corazzato Battalion was equipped with them. (Bad luck, came from Southern France to the Eastern Front in early 1942 btw.)

They were fighting while flanking 6th Army at the Don and were crushed by the Soviet counter offense like many others in the 8th Army.

Regards,

Hi Ronald,
It was a use limited enough on the ground and in the time on the eastern front.

I found more information :



"Divisione Celere"
The 3rd "Amedeo Duca d'Aosta" Celere (Fast or Cavalry) Division was mobilized in June 1940, with the following units; 3rd Savoia Dragoon Regiment, 5th Lancieri di Novara Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Bersaglieri Regiment, 3rd Mobile Artillery Regiment and the 3rd Light Armored Battalion 'San Giorgio'.
Converted from former horse cavalry units, Celere Divisions where semi-motorized units designed for warfare in mountainous terrain (as long as it wasn't too rough for mechanized forces). They sacrifized firepower for speed and by the time the war started, the Celere units where still only partially mechanized. They retained a horse cavalry squadron to cover gaps in the battle lines and exploit holes in the enemy's defenses.
Stationed on the Alpine front until March 1941, they where transferred to the Yugoslavian border and took part in the invasion of that country.
In August 1941, the Division joined the CSIR (Italian Expeditionary Corps in Russia), which was attached to the III German Panzer Corps. They aided in encircling the 103,000 men of the Soviet 6th,12th and 18th Armies at Pervomaisk, then made a forced crossing of the Don on 12 September. Averaging an advance of 70 kilometers a week, on 25 October the first Italian unit to enter Stalino was the Division's 20th Bersaglieri (supported by a horse squadron apiece from the Savoia and Novara).
The Division was ordered to be detached on 12 November to cover the flank of the German 49th Mountain Corps on the Mius River. Instead of moving the entire Division, the commander only sent the 3rd Bersaglieri Regiments and a horse artillery group. They where hit particularly hard by the Soviet offensive launched on 5 December.
The Division would be consumed by the fighting on the Don River in December 1942. The survivors were withdrawn from Russian in March 1943 and sent to Emilia to rebuild. In August they were shipped to Bologna, and disbanded in September after putting up weak resistance to the Germans.
The Light Tank Group of 1940 was organized into a command squadron and four tank squadrons (each with three platoons of four tankettes each). Apparently, the unit also had a motorcycle platoon. It mustered 23 officers, 289 NCOs and troopers, 61 tankettes, 23 assorted vehicles, 32 motorcycles, 18 submachineguns, 122 Breda 38 machineguns, and five radios.
As of May 1942, the Celere Divisions were reorganized so that the Light Tank Company was only authorized 52 tankettes. However, the San Giorgio must have remained on the old Table of Organization, as it had 61 tankettes in four squadrons on 1 August 1943.

L6/40 light tanks were used by the Italians in the Balkans Campaign, in the war against the Soviet Union, in the latter stages of the North African campaign, and in the defence of Sicily and Italy.
