Welcome on the forum ...
Not sure if this is where I should ask this. During the time period of the cold war there were a lot of units. What about units that are not in this game.
There are so many different units for the sole decade we've selected (1975-1985) that we had to make choices.
First, we've decided to field only four nations per side. Then, we've restricted ourselves to Army units, those most likely to have been involved in Germany, so no Navy or Air Force specific troops.
We do realize there are many more cool vehicles out there, but you'll have to admit for your part that 361 units is already a pretty big number of units!
I am talking about weapons such as Stand alone anti tank arty, like the pak 43 or kwk 43.
Stand alone artillery like the soviet 130mm towed field gun m1954.
In the 70's, most anti-tank guns have either been replaced by ATGM, or mounted on tracks to provide them with some amount of mobility.
As for towed artillery guns ... Since WarGame
aims at simulating meeting engagements between mechanized forces, we've decided to stick to self-proppeled vehicles, be they anti-tank, anti-aircraft or artillery.
And also is it possible for Paratroopers to be dropped from planes or helis. That would be pretty interesting. Just wondering if they can do that with this game.
Droped from helis? Are you sure? Or are you refering to fast-roping? In the latter case, fast-roping had first been combat-tested in 1982 during the Falkland War, and would only be used by the SAS in our time period.
As for para-drops, it is a strategical move, not a tactical one. You don't drop paratroopers right on a battlefield against a well-equiped enemy, lest you want a welcoming commity like this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ADloSq2CQp0#t=275s
Such drops could work against under-equiped militias, like the Légion performed at Kolwezy in 1978 or the US troops in Granada in 1983, but you don't try that in the mere vicinity of a Vulcan or Shilka ...
