And I can't see the Maus being added. 24/20/20/6 armor and 15kph just won't work. Probably have Jadgtiger as top German AFV. Insane frontal armor but weak sides and rear.

Well, without ATGM under any bush and AT-planes a.k.a. panic-buttons 24/20/20 with extremely low speed might be pretty funny.
Time for Mosquitos with 2000kg blockbusters.

Maybe. In ALB the Mk.82 500lb bomb was 227kg, while the Mk83/84 1/2,000lb bombs were 500/1,000kg

Because the kg is the official SI unit. Hey, it makes more sense than whatever the hell a 'kip' is.

Also nobody says Mg, that's a Tonne.
