obat46 Austria
Units 006/007/008/009 Kuerassier have 6 Smoke Dischargers.
Yes, they have 6 tubes, but how I understood the game, that doesn't mean they have 6 charges... :confused:

Re: obat46 Austria
Correct. It's how many smoke screens they can produce.

On the list

Re: obat46 Austria

I found one very minor thing with the Austrian Leopard 2 and Ulan.

They are listed in the game as using the MG74 as Coax-MG.

In fact they are using a belgian FN-machingun like the Leopard 2 tanks of the Netherlands.

Re: obat46 Austria

First of all I know you guys are taking a break now and you really deserve it! :up:

When you come back, please consider following suggestions for missing stuff in the OOB:

1.) Austria does have dedicated paratroops - namely the Jägerbataillon 25.



From what I found out so far they are organized like normal Jäger-troops (already in game) without the mortars I guess and paratroop unit class.

2.) Austria also does have dedicated mountain troops, Gebirgsjäger like Germany - e.g. Jägerbataillon 23, 24, 26.


Again I would remove the at least the heavy mortars and switch the unit class.

For now I will just mess around with MobHack myself (thanks for the good documentation) but it would be nice to be in a future update done professionally.

Best Regards,

Re: obat46 Austria
As I can't edit my post - I have to double-post:

Austria also has Hercules transport planes for the paratroops:

Hi @ all!

I did some more research and included my above suggestions in a modified OOB for Austria.

Additionally some new units and changes to old ones were done, changelog is in the quotes.

I'm glad for any comments, tips!

Is there anything special I've got to do to get this OOB into the next patch?

Re: obat46 Austria
There at most two ways to approach your changes to the Austrian OOB. You choose to modify the OOB, requiring interested parties to download it, or you could have changed the units using the Editor and/or Scenhack. Personally, I would have used the latter so as not to inconvenience players and really the OOBs serve as the Pick List for the AI primarily.

When you want to use a unit from a different country you can make that country an ally in the Editor and then make your purchase, and edit as needed in Scenhack or use the Editor.

Concerning formations, form them in the OOB above slot 900. If unit changes are required, make them in the Editor or the Scenhack after a purchase.

Thanks for the references as it appears you've done the research and I accept your personal experiences as a qualified source... big thanks for the effort.

I'll give it a drive and share my experience in the forum.

Re: obat46 Austria
I'll emphasize what shahdi said.

Unless you're essentially rebuilding the OOB (due to changes/corrections - this will require people to download your revised OOB) you're FAR better off just using the editor and changing whatever is needed on Default OOB units.

If you need specific formations for a scenario as shahadi said just create them in a modified alternative OOB (never EVER mess with the Default OOBs) using currently empty formations (as said it's best to put them in one place starting at 8-900 so you can find them easily). You can then buy those formations for your scenario, and it makes no difference what-so-ever to players as formations are only used when purchasing stuff (as a player or the AI) for a battle/scenario/campaign.

Keep in mind that weapons data and ammo loads (particularly for small arms) are in most cases "standardized" throughout the game so real world data may well differ. For instance; most 7.62mm "battle" rifles have a range of 10, any "assault" rifle (5.56mm for instance) has a range of 8.
