I gotta say though, I love ya Kaplan. You took this guy's critism, and actually went and built stuff to get supplies to the front line, and a small main battle tank, etc. You're awesome
Thank you. Critics are always welcome of course because I try to make my army better as I could. I built 11 tanks, 2 flying troop transports and 3 trucks for the purpose of mechanization of the army but It is still not possible for me to build a IFV for every 10 soldiers which means building around 100 additional vehicles. :)
Haha yeah that would be quite a lot...makes me think how much stuff an actual military has to have :shock:

IRL Armies have lot less vehicles per soldier of course. The ratio is appr. 1 vehicle per 30-100 soldiers.

I've currently got more vehicles than a 1/10 ratio but I suspect that wont be the case for long

Small addition to the forces: Field Artillary: Howitzers
These are not very interesting creation so I thought they don't need a tread of their own so I put the photos here.

These are technologically advanced guns so they need only one gunner to operate but can be operated optimally with three crew members. These include an artillery observer (spotter), and two gunners.

Here are the other eight howitzers with gunners and the artillary group commander:

Do you have any pics of the trail-end of the guns?
Are they going to have prime movers, or are they more like the light anti-tank guns the Germans had in WWII?
It's good to see artillery pieces for the brik battlefield. :omnom:
