I feel like this could help deciding what OOBs to operationalize next.

This is the basic gist:
There are armor based units and infantry based units.
The armor based units have mainly tanks (either Light, Medium, Heavy, or Tank Destroyer) plus assorted support units.
The infantry based units have mainly normal infantry plus assorted support units. They only ever have light tanks as tank support.
Basically all base units also have motorized (trucks) or mechanized (APCs) versions.
In addition, infantry based units also have "Heavy" types, which include more of the support units, but less infantry.

Armor based units (all included support units are either motorized or mechanized):
Light Armor, Armored(medium tanks), Heavy Armor(heavy or monitor tanks), Destroyer - 100% tanks of the appropriate type.
The above plus:
Infantry: Tanks + Infantry
Assault (NOT Assault Infantry!): Tanks + Infantry + Artillery
Grenadier (NOT Grenadier Infantry!): Tanks + Infantry + Artillery + MG + RPG
All the tank based units have either trucks (if nothing mentioned) or APCs (if mechanized). On foot variants do not exist.


Infantry based units:
Light Infantry: Infantry
Assault Infantry: Infantry + Light Tanks
Siege Infantry: Infantry + Artillery
MG Infantry: Infantry + MG
RPG Infantry: Infantry + RPG

Grenadier Infantry: Infantry + MG + RPG
Storm Infantry: Infantry + Artillery + Light Tanks (Prior to 1.04b3 some have RPGs instead of tanks)

Assault Grenadier Infantry: Infantry + Light Tanks + MG + RPG
Siege Grenadier Infatry: Infantry + Artillery + MG + RPG
Storm Grenadier Infantry: Infantry + Light Tanks + Artillery + MG + RPG

Like I mentioned above, all of those infantry based types also have a heavy variant, which roughly doubles the amount of support troops and halves the amount of normal infantry.
Again, all the infantry based types have foot, motorized and mechanized variants.


Version 2 (now in alphabetical order)

The ratios for add-on units actually varries quite a bit between the Echelons:
MG Brigade has 500 HQ Infantry, 800 Infantry/200 MG per Batallion. So 1/5th.
MG Corps hsa 900 MG/Regiment. Out of 3600, I think? So 1/4th.

However I do not think the acutall ratio maters that much. I think what you need is:
The Main unit. Infantry, Tanks, etc.
Any addons/opt in replacements.
MG Infantry is Infantry main, with a option-in for MG units.
While motorized have the motorized add-on.

Thanks for your effort, DTurtle, this is a useful reference to have.
(I'm somewhat in awe at the number of different OOBs to discover then operationalize. )

Really appreciated the hard work! I hope than in the near future we get a better system to design or create OOBs, but in the meantime this thread its going to my markers :)

I guess it is a asumed you never have them in masses bigger then what Independant units can support.

Which is nonsense.

Walkers and Heavy Walkers make good replacements for light and medium tanks when engaging in mountain terrain. Sure, you don't have APCs available and as such can't move very quickly even with roads, but at least your forces don't get massacred as badly when trying to dislodge entrenched forces dug into a mountain you can't outflank and isolate.

The Walker is a Vehicle/Infantry Hybrid.

It has vehicle weapons and hardness.
But with combat modifiers like Infantry. Just halved entrenchment.
So they propably warant some totally new OOB's.

The monitor tank however? That thing is basically the Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte. It is the only tank idea I know to actually get close to the monitors Armor and Weapon mm counts.

Nothing for Walkers (only independent).

Monitor tanks count as heavy tanks for OOB purposes.
