Asides from NSWP & Scandinavian new units, there was no plan for adding new units.
Since the purely solo DLC was moved earlier, we've decided to add a few units to answer some requests/fill some gaps and please the community.
Based on the effort/rants ratio, we will stick to just Scandinavians now. Just as the UGBEAR policy, there's hardly a point for us to add extra-stuff, trying to introduce new unit types, ... Modeling copycats of existing units is easier and obviously much safer ...
Dear Madmat, I see your Point and I think it is a good idea to handle things, but two points:
Wouldn't it be fair to give the Patriot(with a RL range of 70km) an ingame range of 5000m to 5200m ? This would apply to the scale as ingame range values develop, somewehre around 812.646357223134*ln(x)+ 1660.7593491703, where x is the RL range in km...
And I wish that you could understand refor rants just a bit, I made a post about it yesterday in another thread:

However I can understand it to some extent. Players, who mainly play pact feel severely hit because of several reasons:
Since Wargame Red Dragon came out, Eugen made the evil man out of them, because Eugen felt insulted by RedFor players. I’m sure Eugen didn’t wanted to hurt Redfor players or anything like this, but they did by following three actions:
They displayed the stats, which teams wins more often to prove that the game is nearly balanced. It surely wasn’t at this stage. But the wrong use of stats, made Blufor “fanboys” more and more attack the REDFOR “fanboys”, like: “Stupid whine post, game is balanced”. Especially after this REDFOR proposals are generally seen as whine threads.
They showed the lists of units which were not added to the game. That solely wouldn’t be that bad, but they only displayed this units for Blufor nations. That raised the hate against REDFOR “fanboys” even more: “Wow we missed so many awesome units and you dare to complain!?” – not thinking about the fact that REDFOR maybe missed some units, too, however this made every REDFOR proposal be covered with posts like, than Gib losat, Gib Patriot etc.
The game currently is pretty well balanced, patriot and Marder are thins that will be figured out, but it so, that REDFOR nearly never has any Top Unit(what is a Top unit, I make it easy and judge it by the price) in any category, don’t misunderstand me they have some very cost effective units, which make you very competitive but they just don’t have the super high end units.
In Wargame EE it was totally different: USSR had the top Tank, the Top Artillery and the top AA unit.
Now they(now REDFOR) lost in all this three departments while not getting anything back from Blufor. They just win in very specialized units, where there is nothing like this at BLUFOR, like Napal Arti, SEAD helicopters or BMPT,
But as I said in another thread, it feels bad that, when you make a Redfor deck, all Highend units you put in have a better or even counterpart at the other side, if a counterpart exists, although this does not make the game unbalance. But it arguably feels bad
I don’t want to insult Eugen with my post, because they make a good job in total, but I just wanted to explain why REDFOR-“Fanboys” become more and more aggressive and less reasonable…
Ps: I you wanna ask why I write “Fanboys” in exclamation marks, I just don’t like this word, because who is a fanboy?
I appreciate your work, but my concern is that the community could be splitted...
