    • Italian Tech Tree

      I've noticed that in many of the new research trees, at least that a nation isn't a super power like USA or USSR, can't create a complete tree. So I would propose that if a nation can't complete the tree, should use the closest allied technology, for example in this Italian Tree, the naval air superiority fighters are the French one.
      I would suggest that a nation should have in it's tree at least 60% of technology produced or in use in the real world nation.
      I would also suggest that it shouldn't be compulsory that every weapon system should be unique to a nation.
      In this tree you find:
      Total Unit: 93 Units
      Producend in italy: 65 (70%)
      Used by italy but not produced: 8 (9%)
      not used nor produced by Italy: 20 (21%)
      In the base game there are already some units in the European Doctrine that has never been used or produced by any European nation like the F-117 and the SR-71

      Thanks for all the research you put into it.
      Unfortunately, for the time being we cannot create individual tech trees for each nation - but this info may come in very handy sometime down the development road.


      thank you for yours answer, I saw different research trees so I thought about proposing this one also, I thought it would be nice that the main nations (Like USA, Russia, India, Cina, France, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy) would have it's own research tree, I know it would be a huge re-skin work, but at least the nations that has a proposed tree would be nice to receive some new skins.

    • Hello everyone,
      a few years ago I bought a graphic tablet and I was used to draw a lot, than i had to give up cause my work started taking huge parts of my days.
      Yesterday and today that I still was on holiday and I was bored, I decided to try drawing a few image for the italian tech tree.
      I was quite rusty and out of shape, but some of these came out pretty well.
      This should be the little image that you can see on the research tree on the left column (where is shown the unit already been researched) and also the smaller one inside the tree itself.
      I drew a FIAT 6616 that would be a level 1 Combat Recon Vehicle
      a VA SuperAV that would be a level 3 Amphibious Combat Vehicle
      VBA SuperAV.png
      a Ariete C1 that would be a level 2 Main Battle Tank (this came out pretty badly... I'll redraw it probably)
      a AMX Ghibli that would be a level 1 Strike Fighter
    • So, i know no one is interested in this especially since i made this for the first time back in 2017, but today i didn't knew what to do in office so I reworked all of the tree to remove all of the mistakes iI've done back then, now here there are only Units produced or used by Italy, under each name I'll leave a description of the unit and at the bottom of the tree i'll leave the description of what i've added and changed.
