Also this is nice, don't you think this will add complexity to scenario designers? It is already lot of works to add a correct TO&E since some equipment files must be customized to add some of them. Adding quality pictures for each of them may be a challenge especially for old ones.
And, the game/scenario size will increase, that's a cost as well for a scenario depot.
You're right. Not so much complexity because I think it's easy to find pics on the net, but yes, that would increase the size of scenarios. No problem with the stock scenarios, but what about custom ones you have to download? That could be a problem. On the other hand, assuming there will be a stock equipment database, it could already contain pics, just like, for instance, the equipment base in Steel Panthers WaW... And if scen designers added some new equipment, they could then also add new pics, perhaps...
