Well, for now, on the NATO side, "only" US, German, English and French troops will be available.

I imagine other nations could be added in a future expansion pack but it's way too early to talk about that.

So I'm sorry, the answer is no, "only" the big four.
But honestly, that is already pretty awesome :D

With so many units, I hope that each will have a different feel. Helicoptors for example should handle differently.

From nimble scouts to lumbering soviet transport helos.

Nice new images. Will we see any numbering on the vehicles?

Also, Unit badge icons in interface/above unit would be a nice touch.

Since we create stacks. I suggest groupings be created before the game starts and perhaps save groups in a favorites file. This way we have an organized interface when the balloon flies.

Same thing goes for saving a map position for quick reference via a key short cut. You want this done before game starts. Again saveable in a file.

Grouping before the game starts will be possible (read this in an online article if I'm not mistaken).
But I don't know about any saving...
I would guess it will be integrated in the game but nothing certain.

What you are saying here is that besides the US, all other forces are useless... Why then do you want more nations???

Game is scheduled for November 2011, no preorder for now.

Well, I think compromises had to be made for the initial release, and the right nations present the best variation in their equipment, at least. Who knows what expansions or addons Eugen might be thinking of after release, though.

Though if the Soviets started an offensive the '80s, then they would've rapidly pre-empted the U.S. staging areas in the ports in NORTHAG's sector, which meant that the arrival of III Corps would likely not as go as cleanly as one would expect.
