I really love games that let you play out early WW2
I've never seen a single game about the Marco Polo Bridge incident
I thought I'd never get the chance to use the supercilious nerd smiley. To the point, I'll note that they already have half of the French tanks modelled and a whole bunch of French map props so it would actually be pretty cheap to do 1940. The French campaign would be absolutely depressing though, you get five tactical successes in a row and then the Government surrenders (for no damn reason) and you're either off to the internment or flagging down a trawler.
Edit: Aww, you edited your post to include the bit about China.
Yeah it suddenly dawned on me as I was writing, 1937 Shanghai would be a gangbuster of a map for sure! There's also no reason not to tack on Nomonhan/Khalkin Gol to the eventual OstFront division dlc/expansion whatever they want to call it. The PLA would be a very niche division(s) set but probably fun in their own way while the German NRA division(s) would be rather interesting as well with their better artillery and highly trained/motivated infantry.
Most RTS just don't even go into the war in the Pacific, let alone Asia, I'm sure there's loads of people that want to take a crack at holding/pre-emptively avenging Singapore & Corregidor and it sure as hell would be redemption for RD if the NRA+PLA could have a run at the IJA in the 1937-40 period.
If this game truly wants to make itself unique I'd fully support an expansion to more periods and campaigns, the stat assignment and distance scale among other things really do seem like they could support it.
