Just a little idea I had:
Everyone knows that the German toe is completely full. Recently I remembered that the Fallschirmjäger in this game are weirdly split up, with 3 "normal" inf groups and 3 lmg groups. Now afaik the FJG Squad had two light machine guns in real life. Is this ingame organisation some kind of holdover from an earlier version of the game that lacked the "2 MG34" / "2 MG42" weapons?
Because it seems like the TOE could be streamlined by getting rid of the lmg teams and instead just giving the infantry teams two lmgs. No idea how much other trouble this would cause on older scenarios, but might be a possibility to clear up space in the German list.

It would only open 5 slots and create problems I have no interest in creating for myself. If those were removed then every formation that uses them would need to be redone by adding an extra FJg Gruppe so that what was two separate units would now be one in the formation

The FJg LMG Grp was put in (IIRC from 22 years ago) to give the FJ a bit more flexibility and firepower for deployment by dividing up one FJg Gruppe to create 2 FJg LMG Grp ( like USMC fireteams ) so we could dumb down the game to "gain" 5 slots but every scenario and campaign that currently uses FJg would need to be redone AND they would have to be redone creatively because what was two units is now one unit would be missing from the unit ID list for every scenario and campaign that uses them.

Not to mention the FJg LMG [G] is as formtion that only uses the units that would be removed which leaves gaps in higher formations that use it which would have to be tracked down and redone

And for what ? To gain 5 slots.......what exactly are we missing from the game that would benfit by having those 5 slots ? There are already 3 empty ones in the current OOB and have been for a couple of years

When I Google "Nakaima 51C1" nothing much comes back which for Japanese aircraft is highly unusual. The only thing is a copy of the one you found

https://www.net-maquettes.com/az-mod...l-legato-7226/

so I'm thinking this was something the Japanese evaluated only. They did that alot in the 20's but there is no mention of even that on any source about the SPAD
