That 95 Infantry brings a lot of questions up :o

Well, all prototye units can go up to 1995, so what's the big deal? :?:


No big deal, just curious what was their equipment in 1995 :D
Since all others have 90s (or 85), so no negative comment!

I mean it is what a bunch of existing 90s units are already doing.

It means Stormtroopers or other wish sayed shock infantry.


I got that but word etymologies have slightly different meanings in translations. Here for example it seems (I've not actually checked though) that the dutch have used a different word for it than other germanic language groups like Norway and Germany has who use the word Sturm or Storm for this function while the duch used a word with a slightly different traditional meaning which has an equivalent word in norwegian and (I presume) German.


Sorry my bad you are write about the thrust troops, i was with a different thing in my head but you could compare it more with storm troopers if you would translate it literally stoottroepen to English it would indeed be thrust troops. In dutch storm is just the same as in english in meaning and writing.

Same for German and Norwegian (English is a germanic language as well). Sturm and storm means exactly the same as the english storm. It got picked since the phrase "to storm" something has the exact same meaning in those languages as well. I'm assuming there is a dutch equivalent phrase as well?

Staf eenheid: command inf
Genie: flamethrower inf
Huzaren: basic recon
Vuurploeg (95): would translate to Fire crew so im thinking either fire support or anti tank
Korps marinier (95): top of the line inf.
KCT: probably reckon SF
Stinger: AA inf
Natres: This will be the reserves (Natres = Nationale Reserve thanks to u/b1bLancer)
Stoottroepen (95) : shock troops
Grenadier: like the German version
