This mod adds Unique Infantry Equipment to the Game.

What does it do?

Simple! It adds the appropriate infantry equipment used by EVERY COUNTRY IN THE GAME from 1918 to 1946. All of them are appropriately added to the localization as well, so no more Weapons 1, Weapons 2, etc. Everything is now appropriately named.


I got really tired of seeing countries using completely inappropriate weapons when there’s no excuse for them to. Now everybody has (to the best of my research) the proper weapons for their countries. That means you get to see classics like the M1 Garand, the Sako M39, the SVT-40, the SKS, the Chinese Mystery Pistol and more!

But [COUNTRYNAME] didn’t use [WEAPON] in [YEAR], or at all!

Ah, yes. Well, unfortunately there are limits to my research abilities, time, and patience. What’s more, some countries just didn’t adopt weapons in correlation with Paradox’s date system. I tried to match things up as closely as I could.

[COUNTRYNAME] should be using [WEAPON] instead of [OTHERWEAPON]!

Ah? It should? Excellent, let me know. I’ll fix it.

The designation for [WEAPON] is wrong.

Ah? It is? Excellent, let me know. I’ll fix it.

A lot of these countries use the same weapons. What’s up with that?

Well, not every country wanted to or was capable of spending the time and resources to develop their own infantry small arms. Countries like Czechoslovakia made an excellent business selling infantry equipment to countries across the world. Additionally, companies like Mauser often would license our their products, allowing nations to build Mauser pattern rifles in domestic factories, rather than import them directly. Finally, countries like the Soviet Union, United States, and the United Kingdom often gave their aging and obsolete weapons to regional allies. Combine all of this together, and you have maybe fifty different types of service rifle in mainline use across the world at any given time in World War 2.
