Marine and Moto. Perhaps Airborne thanks to the Super Lynx, but the Paras have that covered. The potential "problem" I'm faced with here is that all units have good reason to be in Moto.
As for the LGFs, I honestly have no idea. All I was able to find is they're 90mm, but not simply repurposed Super Bazookas or Instalazas. Yet they're probably not a lot more effective than that. Something in the 10-12 AP range would probably be suitable.

Didn't interpreted it as such, but simply that it's telling that the first quote you found at random mentions them.

I happen to make some excellent Nutella crêpes.

Thanks. Definitely an interesting option, although the low power is possibly worrying for a dedicated FIST squad. Would it do anything against vehicles except bounce off? Maybe it should be a tertiary weapon for CIOE since the SPAS is liable to be a little difficult to use given its low effective range.
Any AT capability would be marginal at best - I see them as the Portuguese flavor of anti-infantry team. The M40 and the MILANs are there for vehicles.
They were retired too early for the CIOE. In all likelihood, they'll indeed require a different tertiary weapon - an Arctic Warfare (suppressed!), or my favorite, passing the Stinger down from the DAE. But I found the SPAS-15 interesting. There's fairly good reasons for shotguns not being in Wargame, but a semiautomatic, box-fed shotgun could provide enough firepower to make it worth it.

The kind of aircraft many would say has no place in Wargame, but it's a concept I'm legitimately curious to put to test. It's my little pet unit, if you will.
I'm going to be honest, I have absolutely no idea if/how it would work. The first challenge, I suppose, is that it's the first propeller plane in Wargame so something fancy would have to be done using the code for the helicopter rotors. Then it's all down to the pricing and availability, it'd be brokenly good at 20 points and 16/card so we simply adjust until viable. Do we make it 8 or 6 HP since it's civilian construction and very light indeed?
All of the above? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'd leave that testing to those more knowledgeable in the area than me, and if unfeasible, it could simply be cut. But it's worth a shot.

Not you again.

Trying to squeeze the additions we already got into in-game viability already looks enough of a farce compared to the pre-DLC unit roster and the "rules" applied to balancing, and does nothing for the long term replay value unless you have some sort of a perverse connection to the new nations like being from there and really really caring about it.HrcAk47 wrote:I honestly have too many "favorites".
Besides, any new nation is great!
New maps now. But realistically, no more content now.
I'm an interested party, so I'll wear that bias on my sleeve. But I disagree.
I understand I'm in the minority - in the forum at least. After all, this is the one active thread discussing new additions, where the front page is full of balance discussions large and small (some important, some straight-up metafagging) and Razzman meming on people. But the addition of new nations has great potential at least for anyone who uses minors. South Africa, Italy, Romania and Bulgaria all have the potential to be mid-tier powers, and if I may say that for myself, despite the limitation of my work with Portugal, I believe I created something that'd be quite fun to play.
Of course, I know this has no interest to people who use minors once, then go back to their USSR unspecs. And I'm aware this is a larger section of the player population that I desire. But I cannot in good faith base my proposals on their wishes, because that would be detrimental to this game I love.

So would Switzerland, TBH. Best hope would be to have them together with Austria.
Eukie posted a great joint proposal a while back. Yet another one - she truly deserves a medal at this point, for services to minors.
