Fabulous Kirk! Image

Thanks for the preview. It promises to be far preferable to the current alphabet soup fleet.

I'm hoping in the future something can been done for the naval and riverine units in the Nato format. Currently, just having capital letters sitting in a counter is visually uninspiring.

I've been tinkering with using ship silhouettes, but they come off as hard to read.

Something like this perhaps would be better suited.

If you check the correct boxes... also with a V8 and automatic transmission.

When I am done with SC-WAW counters I will make SC-ACW counters. This is just a tease for now. If people want new ship counters maybe I will make them sooner.

Field Artillery research changes from the standard game. Since my mod allows the option to build Field Artillery units I'm play testing with the option that only the use of Artillery units can de-entrench, which means Infantry and Cavalry units etc
lose the ability to de-entrench. Also since the game turns are now weekly research has been slowed down to compensate for the increase in game turns, added to that you can only apply one chit maximum.
