I guess when you have clones, you have to make at least the branding different
Also if you see talk of proleteri
you immediately have a clue which nation it belongs to ... not so easy if it'd be riflemen #1033
. I guess it's sometimes confusing esp. as it's not uniform, but if you actively play a deck you'll pick up most names fairly quickly, and after that a unique name is handy for eg. balance discussions, you don't have to specify "no no I mean the west german riflemen, not polish..!".

I would have to agree, especially the infantry names add a lot of flavour. In what other games can your tiny never-heard european/asian nation with its old UAZ and a bunch of riflemen (and the supertank according to up-to-date 1990 standards which in reality never existed) make world history? I guess many players whose nation happens to be in just love that, even with the occasional misspelling (shudder)...
almost got over the lathi
Also names like "fighting falcon" or "starfighter" are very iconic... wouldn't make sense to have the units without, but then again - if they weren't used by the danish or germans, would be out of place there.
Are there actually units that should/could still be standardized, taking into account all of the above?
