If you're going ahead with this certain weapon types might be good to know:

ATGMs/AT-Guns
SAMs/AA-Guns

As I said the PRIMARY purpose is to give an accurate count of combat troops....guns and SAMS etc. can be easily counted in the HQ menu as can tanks

Not always.
You occasionally run into unit names that may make perfect sense in their native language, but if you don't happen to know that language you wind up asking yourself ... What the heck is that?

We haven't even seriously started to consider how to implement this and already I'm regretting it....there are only one AT gun, SAM, Tank per unit. You buy them......ok maybe if you're a newbie to that OOB you might ask that question, especially in SPWW2, not so much in MBT but when they are lined up for deployment you can count the number easily and if you bought three companies doing the math is simple .......YES, if it's a large scenario it makes getting a quick number more difficult but it's the actual number of ground troops that's impossible to know without pen a paper and that is why I am mainly focused on that, yes PERHAPS other types could be listed but again...the MAIN focus is giving an accurate count of the number of combat troops per side and *IF* we do go ahead with this THAT will be the first thing that's done.

I say great yes to this idea. I am always the one who believes access to broader statistical data is best
