    Re: Identify that Tank/Ship/Plane/Artillery etc

    I remember seeing something about this quite recently, so it wasn't hard to check.

    Mind sending me a PM once that's ready? I feel like starting a new campaign as DA, this would be a welcome addition.

  12. Re: Was China really that far ahead of everyone else in the past?

    ...really, extrapolating from European ships is tricky, and it's totally wrong to use warships from a different era.

    Crew complement vs. displacement (or weight) do not even scale the same way....

    Neither can EBII team.

    Factions have already been decided and Georgian Iberia did not make the cut. As for units, I have no idea if there is a planned expansion of AoR roster in that area.
